I hope you find yourselves doing well. June was quite a month and we are now half way through the year. I hope you’re taking some time to rest, but also keep up with the movements across the globe.
As you have read in the title, I am still waiting for my copy of Mexican Gothic to arrive, which is very disappointing. I thought pre-ordering would get me my book on time but alas here we are. In the mean time, I’ll happily enjoy some of the other books awaiting to be read by me!

7 books in total! A little less than initially desired and as usual I didn’t complete my planned TBR since my mood took over. But I’ll allow it since it was much needed change.
Highlight Book(s): Hunted by the Sky was just as incredible as I was hoping! I was also super in love with Dani Brown! So looking forward to the next book!
Lowliest Book(s): None this month! They were all pretty high ratings!
WELL I CERTAINLY DIDN’T GET MY COPY OF MEXICAN GOTHIC!
