    I love this mood list.

    I found Her Body and Other Parties to be weird for the sake of weird and I didn’t really connect to any of the stories. I’m adding Evelyn Hugo to my TBR after seeing your review though!

    I’m so glad that you had such a great reading month, Morgan; I loved Text Me When You Get Home so much, as well as Evelyn Hugo, Queen of Hearts and The Great Alone. The year has started out pretty well, I think! Hope you have a great March (and no more snow)!
