#5OnMyTBR – Guardian

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!


Hello, reader!

It’s time once again for another 5 On My TBR! This week’s theme had me scratching my head (and maybe being a bit creative…) as I was trying to find books that fit.
