Monday Reads: Life’s Full of Tough Choices

I did a try a chapter challenge for multiple contemporary romances and four of them are tied. I really need to choose just one to read first... I started The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black and that first chapter left me with so many questions. I still have more decisions to make…
