Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Books| May 2019 Wrap-up

So, I attempted *attempted* to participate in two separate readathons this month. Was I successful? If by that you mean did I read quite a few books, then yes. If you mean did I complete all of the prompts, then no. I’m pretty sure each readathon had only *1* required book, and I failed to…

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…
