Hi everyone! I promise I’m still alive. My brain has just been super fried lately and I feel like I’m trudging through my current book pile. Hopefully, I’ll be giving you my review of the second book in The Dark Tower series and the first book in A Song of Fire and Ice. I’ve also fallen down a rabbit hole of e-books. I was introduced to an amazing site called BookBub and I highly recommend it as you can get really cheap deals on e-books. You can also customize your search preferences too. Now, to get to the main point of this post. My birthday is at the end of the month (June 28th) and I am turning 23. It’s not a huge milestone age by any means, but I have made some milestones in my life. Recently, I got accepted into grad school. I’ll be getting my Masters in Literature. Since June is going to be a rather busy month for me, I decided I would go ahead and share my quotes early. I am obsessed with quotes and have done posts like this in the past so I apologize for any repeats but I hope you find something here that might inspire you like it inspired me.
