I got a little over excited these last few weeks and added way more books to my to-read pile than I had any right too. With libraries being shut because of COVID-19, I know I won’t be picking up all of these books up within the next couple of months. Regardless they’re on my tbr shelf for a reason and I can’t wait to discuss them with you all in the comments below!
