    Two Books Worth the Hype, and One that Can Wait #AMonthofFaves

    Welcome back to the second day of #AMonthofFaves! Today Tamara, Kim, Tanya Patrice, and myself will be taking a look at books worth (and not worth) the hype from 2018! Admittedly, at first I thought, “Really?

I have to admit, it hasn’t been a very bookish weekend over here, but we’re headed in the right direction. The festivities of the readathon started on Wednesday evening, and I was coming down from too much essay grading. My online sections turned in their next-to-last work this week, and I was still drowning at that point.
