Tag: Mid-Year Freak Out

Yes, everyone in the world is doing this tag right now, and it definitely gave me a mid-year complete panic when I was looking through others, which of course meant that I had to share that panic with you! I’ve seen a lot of people do it, but the most recent one (at the time…

The Great TBR Challenge

Okay, here’s the deal. At the end of May, I talked about why I occasionally do book buying bans and how they’re actually really helpful for me.
