    Hello friends!! Well, it’s finally happened. For the first time since I joined Goodreads (in 2013), it’s looking like I won’t hit my Goodreads goal.

    May-June 2021 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the May-June 2021 wrap up. Hahahaha, honestly, I would not even be surprised if you think I’ve incorrectly titled this post. Because it is many, many months late.

    March 2021 wrap up

    Hello bookworms!! It’s time for the March 2021 wrap up. Which was basically forever ago because April has been a TIME. Is it just me, or is 2021 shaping up to be somehow worse than 2020??
