August wasn’t my best reading month. I did read some interesting books, but I felt like I was in a bit of a reading slump for a good part of the month. It couldn’t be helped. I was also busy and had a lot of course work. I did end up reading 20 books, and I hauled one. You’ll find them below the cut.

June was a busy and hectic month. I read a lot of things and did a lot of things. Most of what I read were graphic novels, which are typically fast reads for me. I lost track of my hauling of books in the last little while, so I’m just going to list all the books that I hauled in May and June below.
April wasn’t my best reading month. I had a lot going on with report cards and also starting my second teacher librarian course. It meant that I didn’t have as much free time as I wanted to read, but I did read a few good things. Let’s just jump into it!
I had a pretty good reading month in March. I’m really satisfied with the things that I read, though I do wish that I had been able to read even more since I was off for spring break. I had wanted to do a 24 hour readathon on my own, but I never got around to it. Things just got a bit too busy. Oh well. Let’s jump into everything I hauled and read in March!

I turned thirty on Friday, and so it’s time for another one of my reading challenges to myself. I didn’t do the best on my challenge from the previous year, but I like the challenge and I like trying to check books off of my physical TBR. I have a large personal library, and while I have read a lot of them, there’s always more to read. Below the cut you’ll find my list of 30 books I want to read before my 31st birthday.
November was a really interesting month for me. I read a lot of books, but I also didn’t have nearly as much time for reading as I usually do as I started a course on becoming a teacher librarian. It’s really interesting, but with that on top of teaching full time, I didn’t get as much reading as I wanted to done. However, I’m still happy with what I read. Let’s jump into it.
