Bookmark Lit Bulletin | May 2021

Posted June 2, 2021 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 2 Comments


BL headerThe Bookmark Lit Bulletin wraps up the last month in reading and what was on the blog, as well as what’s coming up next. You can check out my book haul, books read, posts shared, challenge updates, etc. You can read past bulletins here. If you’re looking for more personal updates, you can check out my Lauren Lately feature; it highlights my life events and non-bookish fun from the previous 30 days.

I actually was able to get on track in April by finishing 9 books but May was rough. I just didn’t sit down and read very much. I tended to pick up a book I knew I could blaze through and just read it in a few good sittings. Kind of sad that I only have five books as a result! It doesn’t help that I’m slowly working through RULE OF WOLVES and ended up DNFing SUNKISSED.

May: Get caught up again lol ❌

May was a terrible reading month for me. I was never in the mood to read and I’m not sure I should even fill out this section of the BL Bulletin anymore haha. I may bring it up eventually, but my reading goals are literally just “read a normal amount, you idiot” and that’s kind of annoying to talk about each month like this!


No guarantees anymore, I’m lazy. Sorry.


June TBR ? TBD
