This was a tough month for me – I really felt out of it for a while and like I was on the verge of slumping. But thankfully, I still ended up reading some great books.
As always click on the title to read my review. And all the thanks to Romie @RomieWeDeserveLove for the rep indicators.

Least Favorite Book
Hide by Kiersten White
I think this was my least favorite because I had the most expectations for it. I was just so utterly bored the entire time.
Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas
Both of these were clear standouts of the month for me and brought me so much happiness and joy and I cannot recommend both of them enoough.
