The topic this week didn’t really excite me, so I decided to use last week’s topic instead since I skipped it!  You all know I have trouble actually using a TBR list, so there is no way I will read all of these books this spring, BUT… here are 10 books that would probably be excellent choices!  I honestly do hope to ready all of these very soon!

I haven’t been posting much over the last month or two.  My computer was suffering a slow death.  Anyway, finally got a new computer today!!  I am so excited and can’t wait to get back to my routine!  I’ve missed you all!
