This month’s Unread Shelf Challenge for the Unread Shelf Challenge hosted by Whitney at The Unread Shelf is to particpate in a buddy read. Because I h a t e buddy reads, I’m using my wild card and not taking part in the official challenge. My main focus on books this month will center around egalley books and BIG books (books over 500 pages long)!
