1991: The Year in Books

Today’s my birthday! 🎉 To celebrate, I thought it would be fun to do a bookish post about my birth year! I hope do this post for more years as time goes on, so you guys can find bookish info on your birth years as well. 🙂

I’m not going to include pictures for all the books (that would take forever!), but the pictures that are there are affiliate links for Amazon.
