Author Spotlight: Ann Brashares
This month I'm starting a new monthly topic and it will be The Author Spotlight. And this month I will be putting the light on Ann Brashares.
Throughout the month I'll read some of the books I haven't read and I'll also re-read the ones I have. I'll post my review as soon as I can...so pick up her books and read them with me (don't forget to drink some yummy tea...or coffee!!!)
