We are being spoilt for choices this year. With so many incredible books set to be released in the latter half of the year, it was hard to narrow down the list to just 10. However, these books are the ones I get most excited about and each of them seems to offer a unique twist within their respective genres.

That honor goes to her father’s nineteen-year-old protégé—and once-upon-a-time love of Theodora’s life—Huck Gallagher, while Theodora is left to sit alone in her hotel in Istanbul.

Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Technically it’s Springtime, but it definitely still feels like Winter over here. We’ve had another heap of snow over the weekend, and while I typically love the snow, I want my seasons in order and am praying that Spring shows its face soon. I’m still in this slump, and I can’t see it indefinitely breaking anytime soon, but I hope it does cause I want to get back to reading again. So, while the likelihood of me reading half of the books on this list isn’t great I’m hoping I can find the motivation to try.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read in 2017

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I was spoiled for options for this weeks topic. This is why I never set a reading list for each month because I will never stick to them. There were a lot of great books I fully intended to read in 2017, but, as always, life and my mood reading tendencies got in the way. Here are the 10 books I planned on reading in 2017 but never did. Hopefully, I can get to reading them this year.

Also, as this is the final topic that will be hosted by The Broke and Bookish, I just wanted to take the time to give the ladies over there a HUGE thank you for all the time they’ve put into this over the years.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Autumn To Read Pile

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I’ve all but given up trying to set a monthly tbr pile because I never stick to them. However, if there’s one thing I am determined to do, it’s to narrow down the list of books that I own and remain unread. I wrote out a list of them a few months ago and I’m not going to lie it looks grim. So many books are gathering dust on my shelf so I’m hoping I can tick off a few more by the end of the year. Here are the ten books that I plan on reading this autumn.
