I don’t really do a formal TBR list, but here are a few picture books that came out in 2017 that I haven’t had a chance to borrow and read yet. There’s really no reason in particular why I haven’t read these yet, it’s just that there are so many picture books coming out every month that I simply haven’t gotten around to them! Hopefully this list will remind me to start placing some holds at the library….
- A Greyhound, a Groundhog by Emily Jenkins, illustrated by Chris Appelhans
Lighter than Air by Matthew Clark Smith, illustrated by Matt Tavares

- The Inconvenient Indian by Thomas King
- The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin

Look, it’s huge. Humungous. I will get to it one day.

The Paper Menagerie scarred me so I’m scared of reading Liu’s books because I might not be able to recover from the sadness.

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme by The Broke And The Bookish. Pretty sure we’ve done this before, but we’ve also read a lot more since then– I think our lists might be different this time. Yash Kenettra and Merroutas from The Young Elites by Marie Lu: Kenettra is where the majority of the story takes […]

The best books I’ve read so far this year. Go on, fangirl. Nafiza The best books I’ve read this year, huh. I’ve read quite a few actually. I make it a point to not continue books if they’re not working out for me because there’s no point in torturing myself when other great books await […]
