Monthly Wrap-Up | June 2017

I hope all of you lovely bookish cupcakes are doing well! Life got away from me this month! I had very specific books planned for myself for the month of June, but I ended up mostly mood reading. I am glad that I did – it made me a happier bookworm in general! But it does mean that I didn’t end up reading the things I “should” have. I also was super distracted by work and health stuff in June tbh, so that also deterred me from my original tbr for last month.

Anywho, Kristen from KristensLibrary and I had planned a buddy read for the first Locke Lamora book, but we both kind of ended up reading slower than usual so we didn’t actually start the book until July! I also decided to tackle a couple of NetGalley books instead of what was on my original TBR since I felt a sort of obligation to those. But I digress! Here is a quick recap of my month in reading for the month of June 2017
