Some Galentine's Day Suggestions for Your Besties (And Yourself As Well)

By Cardyn Brooks


Galentine’s Day is February 13th, and this year we need this Gal Pal love fest holiday more than ever. So treat yo'self to one or more of the following literally entertaining reads, then after a few mimosas and some waffles during a virtual friendship feast with your favorite gal pals, grab a calzone while listening to some MouseRat tunes. Jam to the music and read some exceptional tales, without getting jammed, unless you enjoy that. No judgment here.
