Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
I’ve already put out an anticipated releases on my blog so I’ll stay away from that list. There will be a couple of titles that still need to be released.
My TBR is all over the place. I have one on Goodreads, one on an Excel sheet, and a couple of them written down on a pad. I decided to look back a few weeks to see which titles I’m most looking forward to reading.
I’ll start with the upcoming releases.
