I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?

I'm excited for these reads. There's a classic, a couple WW2 reads, historical, historical romance and a book I read in April, that I loved, about two black jazz musicians in Paris who were captured and taken to a nazi concentration camp. I'm hoping that this lineup of awesome authors will ensure some fantastic reads this month.
