Y’all. I don’t know what got into me this month.
I read 20 books this month. No, you didn’t look at that number wrong (and, no, I didn’t count wrong — I counted them up at least six times and the number came out the same), I actually knocked out that many books.
I think I fell into a wormhole or something. I know I’ve been saying time hasn’t been working right for me lately, but this is a new one! I even managed to read all of Tower of Dawn? When I was only expecting to start it?
I can only hope I manage to do the same for July. That would be great, considering I still have so many books I want to get through!
Anyway, only the wrap!

Two five star reads this month! They both were historical fiction, so that’s no surprise. I have a huge soft spot for historical fiction. I also read all the books I intended to read that I listed in my June TBR post! I’m gonna do another one of those since it went so well, so if you want to see that, it’ll be coming out tomorrow!
Unrelated note, but the post editor is really acting up lately. What’s that about?
Thanks for reading!

I don’t know why but I’ve always been hesitant about reading Moloka’i. *shrug* But 5 stars wow! I’ve never heard of The Degenerates but adding to my TBR. Congrats on reading 20 books! I managed 18 last month. Vacation and getting strep took out my reading for a time. Blah. I still need to continue ToG. I think I stopped after Heir of Fire.

18! Congrats!! Maybe not so much for the strep… but totally for the book count! 😂 I think the reason I liked Moloka’i was the fact it was about something I’d never read about before, and that made me super interested in it in a way I’m not so much for other historical fiction novels anymore. It was very good, though! The Degenerates was a similar case, but I think I actually liked that one more because it was in a few different POVs and it was really interesting seeing them all take place! (My feelings on the Throne of Glass/Maas books are so obvious, I feel like you already know what I would say on continuing 😂😂😂)
