June Wrap Up | 2023

June was pretty on par with May for me reading-wise. I wouldn’t say I’m in a reading slump, but I was so stressed this whole month that I really couldn’t focus and I wasn’t able to read as much as I would have liked to.  Unlike May where I was distracted with good things, in June I was stressed with bad things (travel, work, not nearly enough introvert time, and the passing of Andrew’s grandmother to name a few).  It was a lot and I’m looking forward to a nice reset in July where I’ll be spending every possible second at home.  I feel like I’ve been so behind on everything that makes me happy (which adds to the stress!) and I just want to make time to indulge in all of those things.  Plus, July is my birthday month, so I’m hoping to do an excess of the things I love.  Also, I have no idea when I stopped including re-reads in my monthly wrap ups, but I’m reinstating them here. And last note is the I didn’t hate the Mollymauk graphic novel.  The artwork gets 5 stars, but the story was very middling for me.
