Amanda’s Litha Witch-A-Thon TBR

Hi, lovelies! I’m here today to share with you my TBR for the wonderful Witch-A-Thon hosted by  Rihannon over at Crescent Moon Reads. They were kind enough to start this readathon and continue it through the seasons. This will be my first time participating and I’m excited to get reading! For all the information on the readathon check out this twitter thread. This runs from the 14th to the 21st and I can’t wait to start.
