May Reading Challenge: Free Choice Fifteen Final Check In

It’s already time to start wrapping things up for May! This month I wanted to let myself do some mood reading, so my challenge TBR was just fifteen random books I felt like reading – but then it turned out, I didn’t actually feel like doing much reading at all. I did still manage to tick off five more out of the fifteen, so I read ten challenge books in total – read on for my thoughts…
