Recent Reads

61-64 in my 2011 book blogging challenge. I’m going to have to cheat here and play catch up by the quick blog plan on my book responses. I have seriously lagged behind on book blogging lately. I’m starting to forget what I’ve even read much less when I read it or what I thought about […]
