It has been a bit since I have participated in a Book Tag, and this one seemed to be the perfect one to indulge in for a different kind of bookish post. I originally saw this over on Always Trust In Books by Stuart a few weeks ago! This was a blast to put together and look through what I have read so far at the half-way point for 2017! Here is what I came up with:
