As well as this month that I have no idea where it went, but I for sure didn’t read much! But I did enjoy some family time and put everything school related in order, and I’m already preparing myself for next year!

This month I read only 7 books but they were all really nice, and I also had some time with family to see some book-to-movie adaptations!

How was your month? What books did you read?
