June Book Haul

It’s a collection of books I was fortunate enough to buy because…minimum wage job. Anywho, I will be posting the books I have acquired this month (I took pictures of all except 1 because it is a double up). I purchased 17 books; 2 were from Owlcrate and 1 was from Uppercase. The 18th book was a book from my mommy. The rest of the books were purchased from either Amazon, or BookOutlet. I also had a mishap but I will explain further down…this means KEEP READING!

Around the World in 52 Books

It’s almost the middle of 2017, I know it’s a shocker, and I wanted to share my reading achievements with you guys. Per Goodreads, I have read 91 books. However, there are 2 or 3 unaccounted for because…lazy. I also cannot for the life of me remember the 2 or 3, this means they were trash books. I have actively worked at pushing my reading comfort zone and filling out the Around the World in 52 Books Challenge will assist me in keeping up with my plan on reading more than my “go-to books” and hopefully encourage you to do the same!
