Let’s go back in time!

 
…See the books we were most eager to have – books we dreamt about and/or books we never got the chance to read.. yet.

Let’s remember the books that were on our most-anticipated lists, because let’s face it.. they must have been there for a reason. And, who knows, maybe some of these gems will still appeal to you!

First stop: March – the month of new beginnings!
