My 10 Favorite New Authors of 2018 (& 2018 Debut Author Challenge Review!)

April Wrap Up // Anne Shirley, Adventures, and All That Jazz.

Since I just got back from my European adventures Saturday night, this is going to be short and sweet because my loves, I am back to work today and I need to majorly get back into work mode.  Trust me, I am 100% still soaking at Blue Lagoon. In spirit. I meant to tone it down with April’s haul, but, haha, I am hilarious.  I found SALES at Barnes & Noble!  I am hopeless. Y’all should see the condition of my bookcase.  It’s a mess.                  So OF COURSE after Anne of the Island, I HAD to get the […]
