April Releases

April in Indiana is chilly and stormy, and that’s good time for reading a book! I just finished (Me)Moth (🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟) moved The Thythm of Time to the top of my reading list. So much to choose from with new books by Jazz Taylor, Marie Lu, and Cynthia Leitich Smith! I need to get my garden started but, I can’t help but wish for April showers for a few days inside!

Be well and do good!
