Liliana (lililostinabook) | 2328 comments Mod
Thanks! I'm so proud of myself, especially after I was in such an awful reading slump!


heather - NightlyReading (heatherhy01) | 1001 comments oh Lili! Lucky you! I have not been able to find the time to read and am in a slump myself:(

Liliana (lililostinabook) | 2328 comments Mod
Oh girl, I get you. I just finally got out of mine... I hope I didn't pass it on to you 😅 Just give yourself some time, or read something you know you'll enjoy! Reading Fear Street is what got me through this time! It's pretty much all I read in June! Lol


message 22: by Liliana, YA Paranormal Lover (new)

Liliana (lililostinabook) | 2328 comments Mod
Finished Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1) by Kiersten White today! I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time around! Up next... idk yet. My library copies of the next couple of Elemental Assassin books need to get here, like, yesterday! I need more Gin Blanco in my life! Stat! Lol

Also, I just realized I'm 10 books away from reaching my goal... Omg!

Yay! That is so cool! Are you planning on keeping your current goal or are you going to bump it up a little? I'm thinking of bumping it up just a bit since I'm so close to reaching it and I've been reading quite a bit lately.

Girl, I hope so too! I've gone down an Elemental Assassin rabbit hole, and honestly, I don't want to get out. Lol.

Kayleigh {K-Books} (kayley_12) | 1952 comments Mod
Congrats on almost reaching your goals. I reached mine a few weeks ago. I just kept it the same rather than upping it.


message 26: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 4940 comments Mod
I'm just going to leave it and see how much I can surpass it! I'm counting comics and such this year and I didn't used to so that has bumped up my numbers a little. But still, it has been an awesome reading year!

Congrats on reaching yours Kay!


message 27: by Liliana, YA Paranormal Lover (new)

Liliana (lililostinabook) | 2328 comments Mod
That's awesome Kayleigh! :D

Oh yeah, Brittany, those will definitely help! Lol. Short stories are what helped me reach my goal last year! Lol. And also Fear Street books... those are very short!


message 28: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 4940 comments Mod
Fear street are very short! I can't get into them, too young feeling for me these days. Glad you are loving them though!

I have the first elemental assassin book sitting on my shelf and with how much you've been loving them I really want to start it!! So many books, so little time :(


message 29: by Liliana, YA Paranormal Lover (new)

Liliana (lililostinabook) | 2328 comments Mod
Yeah they do feel a bit younger than most YA, but I just can't get enough of R.L. Stine's mysteries! Lol.

Omg Elemental Assassin is the best! If you like badass heroines you will love Gin Blanco! I absolutely adore her!! Whenever you get the chance, definitely start the series! I love everything Jennifer Estep writes!

They are! I plan on finishing no matter how long it takes me but I am behind and will most likely not be able to catch up. We can still fangirl after I read them though;)
