"So many books, so little time." 

Frank Zappa

*Top 10 Tuesday was created by the blog Broke and Bookish, if you want to see all the topics, past and future, you can go here.

Oh. Dear. God. So. Many. Books.

I couldn't do it. I just couldn't choose 10, so the list has 15, but they could be 15000. Really. And besides these ones I have to mention some others here... Yep, more books.

I decided to not include books that I already own on this list, 'cause of course Imma read them. At some point. Probably. Those are: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas, And I Darken by Kiersten White, Gemina by Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff & Marie Lu (illustrator), Winning by Lara Deloza, Relic by Gretchen McNeil & The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place: The Art of Being Messy by Jennifer McCartney.

And I neither included Lady Renegades by Rachel Hawkins, because although I don't even own it yet, it's the last and only book in the trilogy that I haven't read and I will. Yeah. I will.

And this is how I fitted a shitload of books in my Top 10 this week. Smart.

Which 2016 releases do you plan to read this year? Tell me in the comments!
