My second semester of university has somewhat ended, so for the next three months I will be on summer break. Oh, how lucky I am! I will be working for a whole month out of those three. For the other two, I have some stuff planed, but I am not going to get into much detail now. This post is for the goals I wanted to set for myself in order to get as much reading done as possible! If you click the little spade symbol behind every book or manga mentioned, you will be taken to either the site of the book on Goodreads, or the site of the manga on MyAnimeList. If you also use MAL, my account can be found here! Let’s be friends!
