This month I pledge to not buy any new books until I make a significant dent in the books I’ve bought recently. I want to finish two books I started reading earlier in the year — The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopraand Fahrenheit 451. I also want to make some progress on the 2019 Read Harder Challenge, as my completion rate is currently 3/24.

But summer brings more sunlight and more time for leisure reading. If the reading takes place near a frosty cold brew or bubbly rosé, so much the better.
A heavy workload in my MLIS program at Syracuse University slowed my reading down this spring, but I hope to return to my usual pace this month. I’ve added an ambitious 20 titles to my June TBR stack, which I’ve posted below to motivate myself!
