Spring saw me fighting  to stay afloat. My book count went astray, but that’s ok. I was living, healing and figuring out what the next step is.

On August 17th I turn 25 and over the next couple of months I will be doing everything I can to finish this list. Some goals will be missed; its inevitable at this point. Part the list is universe meeting me half way. As long as I do my half, I will be fulfilled in ‘finishing’ this list and taking up the next stage of life, and with that the next challenges.

Simply for now here is my Spring reading.
