Book Review Round-Up: April 2020

Review of ‘All We Ever Wanted’, by Emily Giffin I’m having a tough time writing this review because I’m feeling all the feels. This story made me so angry–but for all the right reasons.  Rich white male privilege made life a living hell for a bunch of characters–sound familiar? But these are the reads that… Read More Book Review Round-Up: April 2020
