Annnnnd I hit a reading slump. BOOOO! Looking at this I realize this is probably the least amount of books I’ve read in a month in over a year. Yikes.

#ReadingSlumpsAreHell

But I think I’m back on track now. I blazed through some short contemporaries and are knocking out the books for my IRL book club I’ve been putting off for three months like the awesome club running person I am. >.>

Overall a good month. Most of my reviews are short if I enjoyed a book and if I didn’t enjoy it I put it to the side, which can be for many reasons. I could not be in the mood for a paranormal romance or I could have just found that interest a bit too problematic for my taste. My DNF list this month is like three times longer than it should be too, but I’m not here to talk about books I didn’t finish! The short reviews for my enjoyed books can all be found on my Goodreads Shelves!

Keep reading kids.
