May Releases

Work for all my different committees is slowly getting caught up and I will soon, SOON be able to start reading and reviewing for my blog again. I have ARCs of Burn Down, Rise Up, Unequal A Story of America, and Kings of B’More that I cannot wait to dig into. There are so many others released this month I want to read, if only time allows! So many projects, so, so many good books and so very little time!
