Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I’ve talked about why I don’t typically set a TBR list. So I like to think of this as a wish list of books I’d like to read in the Summer. I only ticked off two books on my Spring TBR, so I’ve not mentioned the books on that list as they’ve already been carried over to this list. Here are the books I hope to read this Summer.

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Worlds I’d Never Live In

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This week is all about the bookish worlds we’d never want to live in. With that in mind, my obvious conclusions went to all of the brutal fantasy worlds which would kill me the second I’d step on the land.
