Black Girl Unlimited and Long Bright River – Mini Reviews #12

Hi everyone! As someone who actually likes reviewing books I can’t believe that I haven’t published any on here in over two months. And I've read 14 books this year so my (valid) excuses are exhaustion and busyness. Anyways, I'm happy to share my thoughts on two audiobook ARCs I finished recently. I went into…

Hey everyone! I'm back with a few more mini reviews. Unfortunately, I haven't done a wrap-up in almost a month, but I've read quite a few books since my roundup post. This one is going to be pretty short because I've fallen behind and I'm trying to catch up. These are books I read in…

Mini Reviews #7: Asian YA Authors Edition

Hey y'all! First I want to apologize for my absence on here. I thought I'd be more active in the blogosphere in April, but that hasn't quite panned out and I've fallen behind on tags and reviews. However, my blog did hit a milestone during my absence: 500 followers. Thank you so much to each…

Mini Reviews #6: Recent Reads Edition

Hey everyone! It feels as if I've neglected my precious little blog because I haven't been very active on here. Work is keeping busy so there isn't a lot of time for blogging. My priority when I get home is getting to bed by 10:00 p.m. However, I managed to finished a few books recently…

This edition of mini reviews…
