Accomplished in April – Part 1

Book Total: 8 UPDATE: I have removed my comments regarding Harry Potter following J.K. Rowling’ s transphobic comments as I no longer wish to in anyway endorse her work.

Managed in March

Book Total: 2 Better late than never! Here’s my round up of everything I read in March. It was a very odd month for me, as I’m sure it was for everyone else.
