After reading 10 books in January I have now hit a slump. Whyyy!!! As evident by my February TBR there a bunch of books I want to be reading right now but just physically can’t. It’s annoying.
I’m hoping that once I share my thoughts and feelings on the books I’ve read recently it’ll free up brain space and get me motivated to read again. (Please. I beg).

I Think I Love You by Auriane Desombre
I wasn’t sure about this book when I first picked it up. The characters were a bit younger then I was expecting and the writing not as mature.
