I’ve read far too many books | March 2019 Wrap-Up

To be honest I have literally no idea how I was able to read so many books this month. I especially felt like I was slacking at the end of March because I wasn’t reading any audiobook. And yet. I was somehow able to read 13 whole freaking books! I’m probably a little too proud of myself lol. I’m going to consider this reading month a success. I read some new favorite books along with some that were just alright. The majority of the below books are 2019 releases, so if you’re looking for some new book inspo, this is the right place.
