Gettin’ thrown and dumped and trashed […]

2020 In Books!

Bev's Imaginary Book Club

We done got readered! (just kidding, mom, I know how to form sentences.) (I think.) FIFTY.FIVE.NOVELS. That’s what we (well, Ashlee and I) read this year. 55! I’m not sure if it was (is?) the combination of being home ALL THE TIME, or needing to escape reality, or the cerebral slack-slash-forgiveness in other life departments, […]
