This month has been made of ups and downs. On the down side, I has all my finals. On the up side, school is now over for the summer! But, that awkward in between was a terrible, terrible time! I hate finals! I hate 10-page essays! And I also secretly love it all because as I have previously mentions, I am low key a masochist who enjoys these things.
Anyway, I don’t have to worry about school for some time (just kidding a I’m taking a summer class) and can focus more on reading, so yay!

Total Books Read This Year: 42
Goodreads Reading Goal: 60
Only 18 more books to go!
All in all, this was a pretty decent month for reading. Actually, it was a GREAT month! It went better than I had originally thought it would go. I might have to change my Goodreads challenge since I’m so many books ahead of schedule. My one problem is that I barely read any books I actually enjoyed! Someone, anyone, please, tell me of a good book! If I keep this up I fear I am going to get into a reading slump, and I cannot afford that right now that summer is about to begin! Help me!
