I read 11-books during December. Thank you, Winter Break!
And yes, I know I’m late. But better late than never, right?
Many of these books were sent from their authors. Thank you to Palmer Smith and Khalisa Rae for sending copies of their inspiring, moving poetry collections, and to Elvira Weitman for getting me out of my comfort zone with some romance! I am honored to be able to support these up-and-coming authors. I hope that you all will check them out!
I can already tell you that there are strong reviews coming soon for many of the titles listed below. Be on the look out in the near future.
