21 of My Favorite Books

July 25, 2019

If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you probably don’t know that I turned 21 yesterday. Here in the United States, that means I can legally drink. At lassst, I’ve aged out of birthdays to look forward to.

I figured y’all could share in my celebration through books (duh). These are 21 of my favorite books on (the day after) my 21st birthday. And don’t worry, I kept the descriptions down to a badly explained one-sentence plot.
