every sunday we share the books that managed to find their way into our hands.

Love for Pansing Books
I actually got these books sometime in December. And I am glad to be sharing them with you now. I will definitely be featuring the first two titles for our #WomenReadWomen2019 reading theme.
Do you have any recommended titles for our Warrior Women reading theme? We’d love to hear them.
