Don‘t even ask me how my spring break reading goal is going. The one where I‘m not supposed to read any new books until I finish the half-read ones on my shelf. But I HAD to take the goobers to storytime, which just happens to be in the children‘s section, in which you HAVE to walk by the YA section. There isn‘t any way around it. These 4 books just somehow slipped into my library bag as I walked by.

At least I avoided the adult section. 😳
