may is a shared month. july and august, everyone is in different parts of the world; december and january, people pack their moments into a bag big enough only for loved ones. but may is a shared month. for almost everyone, it means flowers, birthdays, and the realization that you’re almost halfway through the year, which is arguably more annoying than spring allergies. here are … Continue reading May TBR/ Books I’ve Been Reading for Forever
