MONTHLY WRAP UP – SEPTEMBER 2019

To close out each month, we’ll be posting a break down of everything we reviewed, beginning with the reads we loved.. and ending with the reads we didn’t. Not only does this compile all our reviews in one handy summary for you to peruse, or catch up on, it also gives us an interesting birds eye view of the month and our reads. And maybe, even, our moods.

MONTHLY WRAP UP – JUNE 2019

To close out each month, we’ll be posting a break down of everything we reviewed, beginning with the reads we loved.. and ending with the reads we didn’t. Not only does this compile all our reviews in one handy summary for you to peruse, or catch up on, it also gives us an interesting birds eye view of the month and our reads. And maybe, even, our moods.

The lack of Micky-ness on the review stakes is a result of exams this month. Re-reads where my constant this month, keeping me going with less concentration needed. I’ll be back to reading more new-to-me books and reviewing them next month.
