#Must Read in 2018


Last year I took part in Carrie Gelson’s (of “There is a Book for That” blog) challenge and I hate to admit it but I did not read any of the books I listed (I did start several tho) . I did read over 400 books last year, but not one of the books on this TBR list.

So, I am trying once again and am adding this list at the end as a double must do.

Here though, are some of the books on my shelves that I really want to read.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
