Top Ten Anticipated Releases for the Rest of 2017

Top Ten Tuesday blog header 5-30-17

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly themed post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme/prompt for which you come up with a list of 10 books/ideas. This week’s prompt is top ten most anticipated releases for the second half of 2017. Pretty self-explanatory. It’s going to be a little tricky for me to actually keep it down to a list of ten though, haha. There are tons of books I’m looking forward to that are releasing during the rest of the year. Since I just posted the other day about June releases that I’m looking forward to, I’m not going to include any June releases – that way my posts won’t be too repetitive.

June Releases I’m Excited For

June Releases

May is almost over already which means it’s now time for me to talk about some of the exciting new releases coming out in June! I love putting together these posts because it always serves as a good reminder for myself about the books that are coming out that I want to read and I love helping other people discover some new books to have on their radar. Summer months are always filled with great releases, so this is probably going to be pretty long. Just warning you all 😉 Anyway, let’s get to it!

Around the Blogosphere

around the blogosphere blog header

You may remember that somewhat recently I announced that I was going to be starting a new feature where I highlight some recent posts from other bloggers that I read and enjoyed. I’m still not 100% sure how frequent these posts will be, but I thought now was a good time to share another. I actually wanted to share this post last weekend, but as you all know, last weekend was super busy as I graduated college and I didn’t have time to put the post together (or to even read blog posts and find some to feature). But better late than never, so without further delay, here are some recent posts from fellow bloggers that I think are worth checking out.

Review: The Enemy Within by Scott Burn

Book Review blog header

Published: July 24th, 2016, self-published | Series: Unknown | Length: 161 pages | Genre: YA sci-fi | Source: I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. | Possible Triggers: suicide attempt


Summary from Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Max has always felt like an outsider. When the agonizing apocalyptic visions begin, he decides suicide is his only escape. He soon finds himself in an institution under the guidance of a therapist who sees something exceptional in him. Just as he begins to leave the hallucinations behind, Max discovers the visions weren’t just in his head.

There are three others who have shared those same thoughts and they’ve been searching for Max. Like him, they are something more than human. Each of them possesses certain abilities, which they’re going to need when a covert military group begins hunting them down.

As the danger escalates, Max doesn’t know which side to trust. But in the end, his choice will decide the fate of both species.

Top Ten Summer Books I’ve Read (Or Want To)

Top Ten Tuesday blog header 5-23-17

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly themed post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme/prompt for which you come up with a list of 10 books/ideas. This week is a summer reads freebie. Here’s the description:

In preparation for Memorial Day (which is always the unofficial summer kickoff for me), let’s rec some summer/beach reads: books to go in your beach bag, best books set in summer, books with summer-y covers, best beach reads for people who don’t enjoy contemporary/realistic reads, best beach reads for fans of X genre, etc. etc.

I’ve decided to talk about some books that are set in summer and split this into 5 books I’ve read and enjoyed that are set in summer and 5 others that I want to read.

As an aside, sorry that I kind of disappeared over the weekend (and yesterday)! I graduated from college and so, as I’m sure you can imagine, was just a little busy, haha. Hopefully, I’m now back to my normal schedule!

I Dare You Tag

I dare you tag

Usually on Fridays, I post a review (or something random or nothing at all), but I don’t have a review ready to post nor do I have anything else ready to post. So instead I’m going to be posting the I Dare You Tag which I was tagged to do around a month ago by Ceri @ Bookmarks and Postcards.  Thank you again for tagging me!

Before I get into the tag, I want to give you all a heads up that I probably won’t be around much the next few days because I’m graduating from college this weekend! Exciting, yes, but it also means I’ll be pretty busy this weekend and won’t have a lot of time to be on my computer. I’m hoping I’ll still be able to get posts up this weekend, but my attempts to schedule ahead failed miserably (I’m such a slacker), so I don’t know if you’ll see anything else from me this weekend. Rest assured, once the weekend’s over I should be around more (fingers crossed!).
