April-May 2024 Reads

For the month of April I decided to immerse myself in the fantasy genre, Fairies, specifically. I liked it. Completely different from my usual murder-crime-mystery and contemporary/romance novels. Then by May I was back to regular programming. I’ve found myself enjoying both genres and it felt nice delving into the world of fantastical dreams and realms to take a break from “solving crimes” in between.
