2022 Mid Year Book Tag

What is one to do when they run out of steam on reviews? Ah, a tag! Michaela recommended this one to me and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. I feel like the beginning of this year is already so far away. Links to videos I couldn’t take, the creators, and the questions are all below the video.

I ran out of cards halfway through, so here are all the other reviews/videos I mentioned:

2022 Q1 Wrap Up

This is so many books. I am so tired. This is an incredible speed run, if I do say so myself, and it’s still 30 minutes long. I need to … read less.
