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!

Top Ten: Books I’d Slay For

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was books I’d slay to get early. Although I try not to start series while they’re ongoing, I’ve fallen into a few that are just so good I try to get my hands on the newest book asap. (And then there are books that I can’t get through my local and state-wide consortium – which means that I’ll probably never read them – so I decided to tack them onto this list.)
