    I’m happy that I managed to finish my entire 2019 physical TBR and I even finished my TBR in May!

    Conclusion: I think I can be happy with what I’ve read this year. I read some more poetry collections this year, I even bought a few this year. I wish I read more books where the main topic of the book is mental health, but I still liked reading about characters with mental health issues. I’m also really happy that I read a few books from my ebook TBR and finished my 2019 physical TBR!
