As part of my 2018 annual goals, I decided to read a book a week. But little know fact, I read really fast. So that mixed with my rule of 5 has basically turned into reading 5 books a month. And I want to share my books! I’ll share the amazon description, and how many stars I gave the book! I love dystopian, fantasy, young adult books. But I do mix in some contemporary. Sometimes I even try to read something that will give me some knowledge! So here’s 5 books I’ve read in June . . .
