The book I decided to grab is Someday, Maybe.
I chose this book because it has been a while since I’ve read a literary fiction. Although this book seems like it’s going to be really heavy, I am actually excited to dive into this book. The cover is gorgeous and it is nice to support a debut author.
If you are a Book of the Month subscriber, what book did you choose??
