TMR Ooh these are an interesting set of books and I can’t wait for them to hit shelves.

kittykat AKA Ms. Tortitude Hola Papi: How to Come Out in a Walmart Parking Lot and Other Life Lessons - the title alone makes me want to read it! Where some people are cover whores, that's me about book titles 🤣.

Kristin The "You should read this book if you like" lists are always amusing. Clean water. "Nope, can't stand that so I'll give that book a miss!" says no one.
