I’ve been tagged a few times for this one, and I’m SO SORRY, because I can’t remember who all tagged me. I really need to be better at keeping track of book tags. I lose them in all the book craziness! Because, clearly, I am FREAKING OUT about the amount of books I have read and still have left to read this year.
When my girl Joss from Teal Reader called me out on BookTube though, I decided it was time to participate. I got to meet this lovely lady at YALLWEST this year, and she is such a fun and genuine person. Be sure to check out her YouTube channel and blog and give her a follow! Seriously, she’s awesome!

Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index by Julie Israel
Most Anticipated Release of the Second Half of 2017
Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy
For the record, I HATE this question. This book was one of only two books I’ve DNF’d in the past two years. I love some of Cohn’s other books, but I just couldn’t connect with this story.
I’m going to interpret this as a book that most exceeded my expectations. I expected The Serpent King to be good. I did not expect it to be freaking phenomenal. This book needs to be required reading for everyone!
The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
