“A perfect day to stay inside and read.”
Selma Blair’d #TBR pile this month is looking like a great mix of fiction and nonfiction. From a memoir about a woman’s inspiring father to a touching memoir about battling cancer and a fiction read filled with lots of family drama, we think her list is pretty diverse. It seems like Selma is catching up on Crazy Rich Asians before it hits theaters this summer.
