New releases I meant to read but didn’t get to

January 10, 2017 2017, Top Ten Tuesday 6

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted at the Broke and the Bookish blog. Each week a different topic is introduced and it is fun to see what everyone writes each week. Check out their blog for more information.

This week I’m talking about the 2016 releases I meant to read, but somehow didn’t. The interesting thing is that I have copies of all these books, but lost track of them. I plan to read them this year.

Dark Run by Mike Brooks (Keiko #1)–Space Opera

    The only book on the list I read was Den of Wolves, and a good number of those were ones I wanted to read. SO I did not much better.

    I’ve only read Rebel of the Sands so far but several of these will work for the Flights of Fantasy Challenge I’m participating in. This is great list.

    I read Rebel of the Sands and really enjoyed it, which was surprising as it’s YA fantasy, not my go-to genre. I liked the setting very much and would read further. I’m adding two of your books to my wish-list now.
