May is the best month. Why? Well, it’s my birthday month. I love birthdays, even though they change quite a bit as you get older. There’s just a special feeling about that day. My reading this last month was really great, some books I really enjoyed.
I’ve decided to approach this post a little differently this month, let’s take a look at What I’ve Read in May 2019.
