I figure today would be a good day to share some of my TBR for this spring/summer which has been chosen based on four things: the books I’ve received from Net Galley which are my top priority, the unread stack on my dresser, the books I get from Kindle First, and then finally the books that have been on my kindle forever.

Now that I’m looking at the list… it’s very likely that I’ll need the rest of the year to finish this list. Or I could do it old school and just binge on books this summer. I hate that I probably won’t be able to. Being an adult sucks. Also… I’m going to try not to buy any more books… except the rest of Gail Carriger’s books. I love them.
