Top 5 Tuesday: Anticipated Releases of 2015 (Part 2)

Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group created by Lainey and Mindy. It is a public group open to booktubers and bloggers alike where every month, topics for each Wednesday of the week is provided either by the moderators or suggested by the members and done by everyone in the community on their respective accounts. Due to the fact that I’m already participating in a weekly Wednesday challenge (Waiting on Wednesday) I decided to make this a day earlier hence, Top 5 Tuesday.

Last week, I posted about all my anticipated releases of 2015: Contemporary Edition so this week, I will be featuring another top 5 from different genres like fantasy and paranormal.

The topic for the 15th of July is the rest of the releases for 2015 that I am eagerly anticipating! I’ll be doing this topic in 2 parts because I seriously could not narrow my choices to just 5 so this 1st part you are reading will be solely for contemporary books I’m really excited for!

Top 5 Tuesday: Things on your bookshelf that aren’t books

Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group created by Lainey and Mindy. It is open to booktubers and bloggers alike where every month, topics for each Wednesday of the week is provided either by the moderators or suggested by the members. Due to the fact that I’m already participating in a weekly Wednesday challenge (Waiting on Wednesday) I decided to make this a day earlier hence, Top 5 Tuesday.

For July 8th, 2015 the topic is items on my bookshelf that are not books. I don’t usually put any thing on my shelf because it is quite small and that would mean objects other than books would take up precious space. However, I do have some things on there that I use sometimes as props for my Instagram photos.
