My Momentous Month (1)

I decided to start an end of the month meme where I go over all of my favorites from the month in each genre, go over my favorite book of the month, go over the reviews I posted, as well as the books I plan to read in the coming month. I also plan on going over my favorite characters, covers, and settings of the month as well. I decided to try something new and I hope you guys enjoy it!
