What I’ve Been Reading: July 2019

Hello there! Each month I share short and sweet book reviews of what I’ve been reading lately. July felt like a bit of a slog, to be honest.  While I finished ten books, and enjoyed most of them, I didn’t have any books that I just couldn’t put down. What un-putdownable book(s) have you read lately? If you’re a reader, […]
