Alas my reading slump is still going strong… I only completed two books last month, but it was two books I was highly anticipating so I am still glad I was able to read them!
These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong – ⭐️ 3/5 stars
The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence – ⭐️ 2/5 stars
This month was a bit of a wash… I’m trying to work my way out of this slump and the way I do that is just by giving myself a complete break from reading until I get back in the mood. There are quite a few new releases that are about to come out that I am excited for so hopefully that will help me out!

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig – ⭐️4/5 stars
