We told you we'd be asking this question again. It's our favorite and you all always deliver some awesome recommendations.
Before we dig into them, though, we spend some time discussing the trailer for the upcoming The Hate U Give movie, Laura Ingalls Wilder's messiness and a bunch of surveys. We also share some follow-up information from Leesa Cross-Smith, the author of our previous pick, Whiskey & Ribbons. Thanks to @shortiegirl44, @lilpocketbooks, @Everywoman98, @MonlatReader, @LocPressedBooks and @OnlySharaeRae for their recommendations.
