Bookmark Lit Bulletin | May 2022

Posted June 2, 2022 / 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 did a great job in May, especially with the final book being squeaked in at 12:30am on June 1st… but that still counts as May 31, since that’s when I started the reading session… right?! I read more this month than any other this year, I think. I’ve started watching booktube again and it’s inspired me to read more. I’m happy about that!
