Books I have received this week to review:
Books I have bought this week: None, zero, nada. May is my ARC month. Well, that’s the right answer BUT it’s not the truth! I ended up buying this one but hear me out, I have my reasons :
1. I need it for a challenge
2. It’s on sale
3. I just want to read it!
So that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
