Monthly Wrap-Up May

Monthly Wrap-Up: May 2023

May was release month for His Perfect Family, so as you can imagine, my efforts were almost exclusively focused on getting things ready for launch. I’ve reignited my love for audiobooks and had the chance to read some great books, including a number of ARCs. They were mostly audiobooks, but still, an ARC is an ARC.

Books Read in May

I’m doing a slow read of the Royal anthology.  So far, I’ve read 8 novellas in that collection. (You’ll get my synopsis and review of that book once I’ve made it through all 25 stories).
