Top Ten: 2016 Releases I Meant to Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was 2016 releases I meant to read but somehow, inexplicably… didn’t. I based this list on my memory and two posts I made last year about my most anticipated releases for the first and second half of 2016.

Top Fifteen: YA Novels I’ve Added to My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was books I’ve recently added to my TBR, but since I don’t normally read young adult novels, I decided to list fifteen titles that I’ve added to my TBR within the last six months!
