  4. I know I have like NO social media cuz I deleted it all because my grades were lowww so I'm going to post it all here, I'm pretty sure I'm doing this part correctly.... :|
    I'm going to be reading ALL WEEK long :D
    My goals: Really, I just want to get back to reading, I've been writing almost nonstop for MONTHS so I've neglected books for SO long I have a HUGE TBR pile :(
    Books to read:
    Harken <3
    Beautiful Darkness
    Life as we Knew it
    The House of the Scorpion
    I don't know if I'll get through ALL of these but I'm hoping for at LEAST 3 books :D
