Part II

Leah and I are going to break down what our top read of each month of 2021 but we are starting with Dec of 2020.  Which means that next year’s episode we will start with Dec of 2021.  There are so many good books releasing at the end of Dec 2021 we did not want to risk missing a possible favorite.   Please Note these books  were published in that Month, doesn’t mean we read it the month it came out.
