    1. Just to preface, I’m a stay at home mom with an almost three year old that prefers to play by herself for a good chunk of each day. I also read basically all day long. I read physically when I can, but I also listen to audiobooks when I can’t read physically and I try to read my eBook for an hour each night before bed.

        1. 10000000% yes i do. It’s wonderful being able to spend as much time with my daughter as I do and still manage to read as much as I do. She also loves books. So, she’ll pretend to read with me and it’s so cute.

  1. Thank you SO much for mentioning the blogger list!!! it means a lot ❤️❤️ & I LOVE to see you have given Rules of Wolves 5 stars, I’m so intrigued to read it, especially after the end of King of Scars. I hope you have a wonderful June 👏🏻✨
