Top Fifteen: Books on My Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was books on my summer tbr.

Can y’all believe that it’s already (officially) summer? (I can’t.) I love making these lists—they’re helpful in planning out what (and when) I’m going to review on the blog—but I had a hard time thinking of specific titles to read that weren’t arcs. I’ve included five titles that I will probably read, but I’m also okay switching out a particular title if I end up not ~feeling it. Okay? Okay.

Top Fourteen: Books on My Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was books on my spring TBR.

Whittling down my TBR is so hard. Like, on one hand, it helps me keep organized and know (roughly) which reviews I’ll be posting… but on the other, new books inevitably come out that aren’t on my list but which I really want to read!
