Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
This was sooo disappointing.


What do you want to read next?

Maybe Autoboyography by Christina Lauren because I’m in a slump and if this is the cute romance I hope, it will be perfect,
but I need to read Furyborn by Claire Legrand, hopefully by the 22nd!

How are your challenges going?

Netgalley Challenge: I tried read 2 this month and DNF them both. On my third now…
Finishing the Series Challenge: oooh! 1!
Book Box Challenge: working on one?
Reviews: HORRID! I still have 2 to write…which is bad. They’re from the same series too which is worse!

Netgalley Challenge : 0
Finishing the Series Challenge : 1
Book Box Challenge: 0
The Unread Shelf Project 2018 : 1
Reviews: I’ve written 4 this month so I feeling better but 3 aren’t up yet, they will be in May.
I Bought It So I Must Read It: 2/26 This really isn’t going well.

Any rants or raves?
Anything to boast or even just chat about?

There is now a “I will not be giving feedback on this book” button on Netgalley. This makes me so happy! Why? Well, I could never let a book just sit, I always felt like I had to let them know I wasn’t reviewing it, but it wasn’t the easiest to do.

My Enamel Mugs from TemporaryPlaces finally arrived and they are gorgeous!!!
