Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about procrastination. I’m actually pretty good at making a plan and sticking to it. But when it comes to books… there are just too many that I want to read and I get distracted easily by shiny new books. The result is of course that there are a million series which I’ve been meaning to start… but haven’t. For some I’ve even already purchased the first book. For some I’ve even already purchased the entire series (*cough* Heroes of Olympus *cough*). And still… no reading is being done. Even though I keep saying I’ll read them next.

So consider this my post of shame and let me present to you: the ten series I’ve been meaning to start FOREVER (but haven’t)!

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today I wanted to talk about some of the recent Sci-Fi and Fantasy books that were added to my (always-growing, never decreasing) TBR. Now, I’ve been trying to be more strict with my TBR and not just add any book. A book needs to sound reeaally good before I add it to my TBR. But these books made the cut. They have all very recently been added to my TBR because they sound awesome and got me super excited to read them. So here we go!

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about my most anticipated releases for the rest of 2017!

Also, it came to my attention that, while I had about a hundred anticipated releases for the beginning of the year, I have suspiciously few anticipated books for the rest of 2017. So this begs the question: did most authors just already release their books in the beginning of the year or have I grown out of touch with upcoming releases?

If the answer is the latter, then this topic has a perfect timing because now I can browse everyone else’s posts for books to add to my TBR. So thanks in advance to my fellow bloggers, and in the meantime, enjoy my list!
