weekly feature focusing on the books we bought, borrowed, and received from publishers
Sunday again! I want to take this moment to wish a very happy birthday to our friend Alexa at Alexa Loves Books who has been not only a great supporter of our blog and our work, but a sweet friend who is funny, adorable, and great to talk to. I hope it was a fabulous weekend for you, A! (In fact, she’s so amazing she is giving away books for her birthday! Go look!)
