Preview: My Netgalley TBR 

Just a quick peek at my Netgalley shelf! Four great books to carry me through this month. I can’t wait to start them! I have four reviews to write this weekend as well so I’m going to be busy. Here’s a look at what’s to come: The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti…
