Happy June! This month is very exciting for my because, not only is it my 23rd birthday on the 20th June, I start my new job on the 29th AND it’ll officially be summer! I am hoping to get a fair bit of reading done this month, so here are all of the books that are currently on my TBR list! I usually try to keep these lists relatively small, though if I manage to read them all, I tend to add a few more as the days go on! Happy reading!
