Mini Book Reviews: Q3 and Q4 of 2018

This post includes affiliate links.

First of all, my apologies for neglecting my seasonal book review posts these past few months. I’m going to assume that getting a puppy is a good enough excuse to be off the radar for a while. My pup is now 7 months old so I’m finally getting some more time for myself, and that means more blog posts! Here’s a catch-up post of the books I’ve read since my last seasonal book review post.

Starting with this post, I will be changing things up with my mini book reviews. Anything I read from now on will be collected in posts that cover a quarter of the year, so the next one will be Q1 (January, February, and March of 2019), rather than the season. This will make it easier for me to have an overview of the year. Hope you don’t mind the change!
