My Summer Reading Assignment

“My Summer Reading Assignment.” God, that sounds so…so…schoolish. Ugh. *Shudders.* So this isn’t really an “assignment,” its more like a TBR, which is more like very loose guidelines. Anyhoo! Somehow I’ve managed to read ahead of my Goodreads challenge, while simultaneously falling behind with my TBR. I know. How does that even happen? Well, it doesn’t matter […]
