Honestly, it was a blur. I hardly remember anything that happened this month. There was just so much going on and nothing at the same time that I just lost track. *Deeeep breathe…Life wise, I had a lot of job interviews, started a course to help improve my knowledge and pass the time of my unemployed ass, renewed my ID, froze my gym membership because of the craziness, family came by to visit and are staying for 3 weeks, cleaned up my whole room, donated half my stuff, got a facial after a full year and dyed my hair Blonde!  *exhale
Book wise, focused a lot on my 2k18 challenges, worked on my ARCs and a little bit of manga. Then had to take a break because my eyes were killing me from all the craziness.

  1. Wow you found great books to read that you really enjoyed. That’s the best feeling! Blonde is good. I read an ARC of Meet Yasmin for review and found her very likable and want to read more about her and her loving family.

  2. Awesome month of reading! I just posted my May wrap-up and I totally talked about the significance of getting some of my ARCs and TBR shelf books read too! I actually ended up reading 4 books that had been on my shelf for over 2 years! Also, awesome job on slaying your challenge. I’m not exactly slaying my Goodreads one (I’m 2 books behind), but I have been slaying other challenges I signed up for! There’s at least 2 I already surpassed my goal for.

    1. That’s brilliant!!! I kind of forgot my other challenges, so I’ve been trying to go back to them and save some! haha! Anyway, how many did you sign up for? And CONGRATZ!! It must’ve felt awesome to finally get those books off ur list! 😀


  3. That’s a brilliant reading month and I am amazed you found so much book time alongside everything else that was happening!
    I want to learn more about the Saadia Faruqi book 🙂
