What We’re Actually Reading: Spring 2016 Roundup

April 6, 2016 by


I’ve read four books of my goal to read twenty books this year! Not counting books we read for this blog. Obviously. The word “goal” implies some kind of personal achievement. Jane Eyre What’s It About? It’s Jane Eyre, y’all. What’s It Like? Is it weird if my favorite parts of this were the first […]
