Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Books I’m Looking Forward to in the First Half of 2017

Omg, such a hard decision because there are so many good ones! But thankfully, I only have to focus on the first half. πŸ˜‰

This is a mix of debut authors, sequels, and well-seasoned authors but all of them sound truly amazing! I can’t wait to get my hands on all of them, and thanks to my local library who has done aΒ fantastic job getting newly released YA books, I won’t have to spend a fortune! ^_^ Continue reading

I’m so proud of myself for reading the books on my shelf. It sounds silly but the library and all the new books that have come out over the past few months haven’t given me a chance to read the books I actually own! And I’m actually trying to read books on my shelf so I can sift through them and determine which ones are worth keeping and others…not.
