I have been skipping some reviews lately, especially on books I don't have a ton of thoughts on. I don't like leaving books unreviewed, so here are some quick reviews for books I've read since the beginning of the year!
I have been doing an absolutely awful job at keeping up with reviews and posts that I want to write. I've missed 5 or 6 reviews over the past couple months, so I am going to do a mini review post, including all of those. That way, I don't have to stress myself out that they still aren't done, and I can move onto reviews that are fresh in my mind! I want to keep on top of my writing schedule better, so I think this will help.
