    Announcement: Juno June

    Hey guys. Today I am announcing a month long readalong that I am hosting with the lovely Faye from A Daydreamer’s Thoughts. This all came about one day when we were looking at each other’s unread books to find books to buddy read, and we both realised that neither of us have read many of Juno’s books. We decided to buddy read 5 of her books over the duration of one month, and Juno June was born.

    Upcoming Releases I’m Excited For

    Hey guys. Today I thought I’d share with you some upcoming releases I’m excited for. I’m not going to list every release of the year that I’m excited about. I’m just going to list a few that are coming out in the next couple of months. With everything that is going on in the world at the moment, I’ve not really felt much like reading, so I’m hoping that this will get me excited about books again. Enjoy!
