So I have mentioned a few times how one of my resolutions for 2019 is to read 12 books over the course of the year. Since the school year can get really busy, I have been using my summer to knock out the bulk of this goal and so far, so good!Read More

I randomly sifted through one of the bookshelves in my house and one found The Lords of Disciple by Pat Conroy, one of the books that my mom has always raved about so I thought I would give it a go.
