May 2021 ARC Check In

Oh man… Part of me loves doing these check in posts and part of me dreads it every month because I feel like I’m just highlighting my failure 😅

I read quite a few ARCs but not as much as I needed to.. and I got sent a bunch more 🙈 I’m sorry. I have no excuses. I’m just a hot mess who can’t say no to new books.
