Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s topic is Top 10 12 Book Recommendations (insert topic here)

I’m not a huge fan of YA books – I have to be in a certain mood to pick one up. And I’m super picky about the ones I do read. So for any of you readers that are like me and hesitate to pick up a YA book – I have some recommendations for my top favorites that I’m sure you’ll enjoy despite not being a huge fan of the genre.

{Top Ten Tuesday} Best of 2017 So Far

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s topic is Best Books You’ve Read In 2017 So Far

I’ve been taking a break from blogging to focus on reading more and enjoying the summer. But, I couldn’t pass up posting a list of my favorite books so far this year!

I’ve read 32 books this year, and surprisingly the majority of them didn’t WOW me. So this list was easy to come up with.

This book tops my list. I absolutely loved every minute of it.

I was hesitant to pick this one up, but it was the first book that I read this year that blew me away.

Amy Harmon never disappoints.

I wasn’t expecting to love this one as much as I did, but it left a lasting impression on me.

A new suspense author for me to auto-buy.

And a new romance author to keep an eye out for.

I’ve loved this authors books in the past, and this one was just as wonderful.

Because, Amy Harmon.

One of my favorite romantic suspense authors – this new release lived up to all of my expectations.

I really enjoyed this one, and look forward to reading more by this author.

 

These are my only 5 star reads for the year, which is very unusual for me! I don’t know if I’m just not picking the right books these days or I’m getting harsher with my ratings.

Have you read any of these? What did you think?

{Top Ten Tuesday} Most Anticipated: 2017 Part Two

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s topic is Most Anticipated Books for the Second Half of 2017.

Here are the books I’m really looking forward to!

No cover yet

Without Merit by Colleen Hoover

Paper Ghosts by Julia Heaberlin

No Release Date

I’m hoping she releases this book before the end of the year. Tarryn never sets a date, just surprises her readers when she hits publish.

Authors I will pre-order/buy every new release

    

These will land on my Kindle tomorrow, and I’m really excited!

 

What are some of your most anticipated books for the rest of the year?

{Top Ten Tuesday} Cover Love

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s topic is Cover Theme Freebie.

I went with some of my favorite covers over the past year. Some of these I’ve read and some are on my TBR list. I shamefully admit that I judge a book by it’s cover, and I’m more likely to pick it up if the cover is pretty.

    

    

Do you notice a theme? I’m drawn to books with creepy houses or cozy cabin/lake getaways. 😉
