Bout of Books #17 Daily Progress Updates

Hello lovely friends! If you don't know by now, you probably don't follow me on any social media platforms because I haven't shut up about it over the last 36 hours, but I am participating in round #17 of the Bout of Books readathon!

    1. Thank you! I'm on vacation this week so I'm able to read much more than I normally would - taking serious advantage of that! I hope you're having a wonderful readathon!
