{ Book Tag } Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

I've seen this fun tag around the community for a while and thought it'd be fun to try! 


A few things:

i've no idea who created this tag, unfortunately. no one linked back to anyone else in the posts i've seen. just for the record: i did not make it and it is, in no way, my intention to take credit for it.

i'm also going to be posting some stats. this, as i've seen, is not necessary, but for me to know where i'm at!

the stats:

my goal for the year is to read 100 books!
