At the beginning of 2020, I decided that I want to make a conscious effort to make my physical TBR smaller this year. That means less buying and more reading. So far, I’ve read as many books as I’ve bought, so it’s not going great! I’m having a really good time along the way, though, […]

Mini Reviews: March 2020 (Sims-a-thon)
