May Wrap Up


Hi everyone! I had an absolutely amazing month of reading in May! This was definitely the most I’ve read in a month so far this year. I ended up completing 9 YA/adult novels and 6 children’s books for a total of 15 books and 4,313 pages (the page count includes the books I put on hold). As far as my May TBR goes, I didn’t really stick to it. I’m usually terrible at doing that! I did manage to read 5 out of the 13 books though!

These are all books that I lost interest in at different parts of the month but I definitely plan on coming back to them later on and finishing them!
