Home (Binti #2)

I cannot believe it’s been like, two years, since I read Binti. I really enjoyed it too! But for some reason it just took me forever to pick up this second book. I don’t know.

The Boyfriend Project

First, thanks to Libro.fm for the ALC of this contemporary romance. (If you are into audiobooks, definitely check out their librarian/influencer program!) I was really in the need for something light and sexy (contemporary romances have become some of my favorite escapist literature over the past few years) and this was sounded like it would… Continue reading The Boyfriend Project
