June TBR, Plus My Favorite Reads from April + May

It’s been awhile since I’ve done this type of post! I’m sorry for that, I’ve been making videos of this on TikTok and kept putting off actually writing it down. I would like to blame my not-so-great internet, but it’s really just my fault haha.

Before I start talking about all of the books I’m dying to read this month, I want to mention some of the most memorable reads of the past two months!

Read more to see my favorite April and May reads, as well as my June TBR List!

Best March Reads + April TBR – Quarantine Reading

March Favorites + April TBR

March was… insane. To say the least.

Thank God for books.

I read 11 books in March, most of them read before quarantine. I was hoping I would read more since social distancing started but instead, I’m struggling to get through books. Before all this, I was reading more than I had in months, so hopefully I’m really hoping I’ll be able to get back to that soon.

Read more for all of my favorite March reads, as well as the books I’m hoping to read in April!
