Welcome back fellow readers!
Today, I wanted to share some books I've finished recently, am working on, or plan on reading in the month of May. While I'm not 100% certain that I'll read each of these this month, I'm hoping that I will! At times, I swap certain books in and out of my to-be-read pile depending on what I'm in the mood for. Nonetheless, I'll keep you all updated!
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

Cora and Caesar's first stop is South Carolina, a city that seems safe on the surface- but is horrific in its core. To make matters worse: renowned slave catcher Ridgeway is moments from discovering their whereabouts. Forced to escape her new life, Cora travels, state by state, seeking true freedom.
