Amanda’s June Wrap Up

Hi lovelies! Can you believe it’s already July? I had an excellent month for June. I did pretty well in my college classes. I read a ton of books. I got to spend some fun days by the pool with my cousins. All in all, June was good to me. I read a total of twenty-seven books. Some great, some not  so great. But, most of them were on my physical TBR of books I already own which I’m happy to be making progress on.
