Can you believe how fast 2019 is going? And with so many beautiful books already. The last 3 months have been a lot of fun for me. And it blows my mind when i think about all the literary goodness still coming our way this year.

However, in the spirit of sticking to my commitments, I am now doing this in mid-February. Hopefully, you’ll find it useful and it would have been worth it. Lol.
