Is it Friday already?! This week flew by and I wasn’t prepared for this post lol. So far in the bookshelf tour series I’ve done fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction, romance, and thriller/mystery….. this week? Contemporary! Yay! A new genre! If you’re new to the series, here’s how it works: I show you a picture of my shelves and list the book title, author and star rating, and any books where i’ve written a review it will be linked (I believe the linked titles will show up with an underline). Links to all previous posts will be listed below.
You will notice that there are two copies of On The Come Up and The Hate U Give – one copy of each belongs to my daughter 🙂 On with the contemporary!
