On Hold Vol. 2

On Hold is a feature on the blog where every Wednesday I talk about what books I have on hold at the library. If you want to join in, feel free to use the image and link to your post in the comments area! :)

This looks like a fun Picture Book! :)

Honestly, anything with spies is pretty much guaranteed to be added to my TBR list! :)

I haven't heard a lot about this YA book, but it looked interesting! :)

What books do you have on hold? :)

Top Ten Favorite Books of 2017!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog

Ahh, I didn't exactly list ten in this post. I may have exceeded that number. Just a little. And by a little, I mean, a lot. But there were so many good books this year! I read so many amazing books that I had to list more than ten! :)

And there are seriously so many books I wanted to read this year, that I never got to. There are some that I feel bad about not reading, because I really wanted to. I will read them! Eventually!

Okay! Here we go! Listed in order of Picture Book, Middle Grade, YA, Adult, Graphic Novel, and Non-Fiction! If I read more than one book in a series this year, only one is listed.

Oh! And for more info about my reading year, I will be posting my answers to the End of Year Survey soon. And by soon, I mean whenever I finish answering all the questions, which I am trying to get done by the end of December. :)

Now, seriously, here we go! :)

Top Ten Sixty-Five Favorite Books of 2017

My Mom and I read Picture Books together, and she helped me narrow down what ones to list here. Because if I listed every Picture Book we enjoyed this year, it would be waaay too long to list them all here! :)
