Hi strangers! Sorry I haven't been as active with my site the past couple of weeks. Once again, I've become stressed out to the max, just took my SAT this morning, and could barely even find time to breath this week. I also just haven't felt motivated recently, I feel like I post the same kind of thing week after week. Hopefully I'll find some inspiration soon and get back in touch with my blog.
I came across some wonderful covers and some intriguing summaries of books today. Thought I'd share and see what you all think! I know I'm racing to add them all to my goodreads pile.
