The reason, I’m choosing Kate McCann is because she tried everything to find her child, it’s okay if you don’t agree me. This is just my opinion.

May 1st: Bookish Things I’ve Changed My Mind About
— This can cover any bookish topic you want: tropes, characters, TBRs, genres, anything!

The first thing that comes to mind; it’s how uncomfortable I’ve become when it comes to reading sex scenes in books, so books like the one below don’t work for me anymore.

Sex in C Major
Sex in C Major
by Matthew J. Metzger

I gave up trying to read all the books on my tbr, so instead, I use it as a guide to guide me for the books I want to read that month.

I appreciate when an author knows about the topic she/he writing about or has done their research.

When reading romance, I prefer LGBT+ characters.

As a teen historical fiction scared but as an adult I love it.

A few years ago I thought there were only a few book lovers like me; however, as I found the book community, I knew I was very wrong.
