Happy Tuesday everyone. This week we are talking about our most anticipated book releases for the second half of 2017. There are so many epic titles set to be unleashed to the world this year so narrowing down my top 10 was a challenge but I got there in the end.

Top Ten Tuesday: Cover Love #2

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This week is all about the cover love. Now I’ve done this topic before and it was just a general gushing of pretty book covers. So this week I thought I’d put a simple thematic twist on the topic and look at my favourite covers that feature people on them.

Time for another laptop update. Well, it’s fixed but it’s on its final breath so now I have to get myself a new laptop. Technology well and truly hates me.

I’m still recovering from A Conjuring of Light so I’ve yet to pick up another book. I have plenty of books I plan on reading so hopefully I can get out of this book coma soon. Here are the 10 books that are on my Spring to be read list.

Top Ten Tuesday: 2016 Releases I Meant to Read but Didn’t

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

So many books, so little time. 2016 treated us to plenty of exciting new books but finding the time to actually read them all was a struggle. I was hoping to tackle every single book on this list but I failed. However, I do plan on reading these books and I hope to do so this year.
