Reading Challenge Update: Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge

A few months ago, I decided to participate in the Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge. I went with the beginner level, which had 23 prompts. I’m happy to report that, while I didn’t finish the challenge, I did complete twenty of the prompts! (Given another week, I probably could’ve finished the challenge, but it’s okay!)
