Finally got that Q marked off! But, ooof. I don’t know if I’m going to hit any other letters this year!!
Still no updates this month (mostly because I can’t find my list that tells me what each of the prompts are), but I’ve still finished PINK, BLUE, ORANGE and BROWN!!
However, given the amount of romance novels I’ve been reading this month, I’m actually expecting to cross off a few more squares on this one!!
I’ve been finishing more and more of these, so the year is definitely looking good!!
