Wesley James Ruined My Life by Jennifer Honeybourn | Book Review

Wesley James Ruined My Life by Jennifer Honeybourn did not substantially impact my life. I mean, with a book title like that you might think it’ll have some kind of impact. It did not. Actually, going in, based on the summary I had some expectations for this book. I was hoping it was going to […]

Omaha Beach On D-Day by Jean-David Morvan | Book Review
