We are getting to all of those end of the year posts and I am excited. I truly am excited for all of the reading stats, wrap-ups, gift guides, reading plans for next year - I want it all.

Let's chat. I find that recently there have been a lot of hot takes on the bookstagram community, mostly from people who aren't part of the community and feel like they should have an opinion on everything.
