It’s time for this month’s one-woman book club selections. Yay! This month, I’ll be tackling these highly recommended books, one fiction and the other more brand focused.
If you feel like joining me, here are both the books for February, with links to where you can purchase your own copy. Don’t forget, you can always borrow them from your local library.
Alright, without any further ado, here's the February Book Club List:
