April Reading Report

To absolutely no one’s surprise, this month I continued using books as escapism (and to keep my mental health up as much as possible). And the highly increased volume of manga that I read definitely created the highly increased read count, so don’t be too impressed when you see it, LOL.

Should I have been spending more time on classes so I could finish the semester strong? Without a doubt, yes.

Would I change it if I could? Without a doubt, no.

State of the ARC

State of the ARC is a monthly meme created by Evelina @ Avalinah’s Books.

I actually did pretty well with ARCs! The scales are tipping in the right direction and the number is half of what it was last month … though staying off Netgalley to avoid requesting more also means I’m behind on reviews, so my ratio is also dropping πŸ˜… (But it’s still at 84%, so I’m not that worried. Yet.)
