Has it really been a full month since my last reading recap? I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun! The amount I read this month was honestly really disappointing, as I went from reading seven books last month to only one this month. However, I had so many exciting and new things going on that were the culprit for why I didn’t read as much as I would have liked, so in this month’s reading recap, I’m going to tell you a little bit about those activities as well! Without futher ado, let’s jump right into this, shall we?

Average Rating of this Month’s Reading: 4 stars
This book was one of my most highly anticipated books of the year, and it did not disappoint! I absolutely loved jumping back into this world of Wardens, demons, and other supernatural critters, The plot was fast-paced, the characters were hilarious and witty (as usual, of course!), and the romance was just so sweet! I was really torn about whether or not to give it four or five stars, but I went with four because as amazing as this book was, I got REALLY frustrated towards the middle of it…. like, set my book down and walk the heck away frustrated, which rarely, if ever, happens. However, it was a necessary evil, and that doesn’t take away from how much fun I had giving Rage and Ruin a read. Full review coming in the very near future, and I can’t wait to share my full thoughts with you all!
What I’ve Been Up to Besides Reading
I guess I sold myself a little short on how much I’ve been reading this month, as I ended up taking an online Corporate Finance class and read a whole lotta chapters in the textbook. Since I was working through at least three full chapters a week and completing a semester’s worth of work in one month’s time, schoolwork pretty much took over my life this month! And, while I’m by no means a huge fan of finance (because math, eww), I learned so many new things that I can envision myself using in the future, so that was an added bonus tacked on to also earning one more credit towards my degree!
Something you all many not know about me is that my mom and I have been working on remodeling the home we’ve lived in for over 12 years now. The house has so much character, but we really wanted to make it our own. Over the past few years, we have reworked the kitchen (with the help of a contractor), reconfigured the half bath (with only the help of a plumber reworking lines and some other tiny little details), and upgraded the flooring in the basement and master bedroom. Well, we decided this month that we are going to now be tackling the last two bathrooms in the house by giving them some cosmetic upgrades. Needless to say this is going to be quite the project, so when I wasn’t doing my school, I was prepping the bathrooms for their makeovers! Even though it cut into my reading time a bit short this month, I am super excited to see how our latest home reno project comes out!
