Our Most Anticipated Reads of 2018!

Hi everyone!

Thanks for sticking with us through our holiday hiatus!

Bonnie and Mandy have a LOT of new things in the works for you---including *gasp* a new feature!?

For today, we wanted to get you all excited about some of the books we're most excited to read in 2018.

(And....you're about to see why we don't take part in Top Ten Tuesday very often. We have a LOT of trouble narrowing things down to ten!)

Bonnie decided to look at her Goodreads List and narrow down her already 100-odd list to the 21 titles she wanted most this year (so far!). Mandy anticipates all her books equally and decided to give readers a sneak peek at everything she's excited for during the first half of 2018. (You can follow her on Goodreads, too!) [You'll be able to see how Mandy and Bonnie have similar yet very different tastes. It keeps our blog fresh! ^.~]

Because our lists are already on the longer side, we're not going to tell you why we're excited about them or share their covers because then this post would be CRAZY long, but we would LOVE to hear your comments here or on Twitter about which books YOU'RE excited for...and which ones we should be adding to our TBR piles!
