March #ReadOrDonate picks.

The Goldfinch was a #Roll100 book for February and I‘m not going to get to it. It‘s time for me to either read it or donate it. (Or both 🤓)

Reunion Pass is another book I‘ve had for a while. It‘s part of a series I love but I‘ve stalled. This should be the motivation I need to read this one and continue the series.

julieclair Perfect reasons for choosing these two as #ReadOrDonate selections! 👍 2d

Wow! Definitely give this a chance. In the beginning I kept thinking this was out of character for O‘Leary. Such a likable character doing such unlikable things. But, O‘Leary weaves a wonderful (albeit sad) story and ultimately we get our HEA.
This is my one of my February #Roll100 rolled books.
