  • 2021 reading goals check-in
    Back in January, I made a list of goals for myself that I wanted to achieve this year—goals related to reading, blogging, and my Bookstagram. Now that I’m home from college for the summer, I’ve had more time on my hands to read, and I recently finished my 50th book of the year!
