Lara, you will LOVE Bareback. Can't wait to hear what yo think about it. You've got some great books on your list.

Lara | 109 comments Yay! I am excited about it. I struggled last month with this challenge just because the book I saved for last was something I really wasn't interested in reading. It was suggested to me by a friend and it fit one of the categories. Needless to say, I am only going to read books I want to read this month and I am excited about that.
