Taking a [sort of] break and enjoying summer

I hope everyone is having an amazing summer so far! I’m writing this to say I’m scaling back a bit for the summer. I want to take the time the next two months and just enjoy different things. I will continue to read and review but I might not post every day. I have some blitzes and promo stuff already scheduled so I will post things I've already committed to. I feel like for once in a long time I really want to chill and read at my leisure. I also want to take the time and catch up on some stuff on Netflix that I’ve been dying to watch. So below are a few things I hope to get into during my time off.

My Summer TBR

    1. Thanks Zareena! I hope you are having a great one also.

  2. So many great choices, Monica!! I'm so glad you're going to read Me Before You; it's such a great book and there's a sequel publishing in September, I've heard. Enjoy the time to do what you want; you deserve it!!

    1. Thanks! I've been trying to read it for awhile now and its the perfect time before the sequel. I hope you have a great summer!
