My Summer Reading List- How Did I Do?

You may or may not remember that I had made a summer reading list for myself back in May to help me narrow my focus to books I really needed to/wanted to get read soon. So how did I do?

First I have the list of books on the list I did finish- 19 out of 30. Woohoo! It's not completely embarrassing!

Then I have listed the books that were on the list that I am currently reading or DNF- they number 3.

Last I have the books I did not get to at all- the remaining 8.
