Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish. I am definitely already in summer reading mode, how about you? Contemporary YA, romance and maybe a mystery or two are my favorite summer reads. I snuck a peek back at my Spring TBR list to see how I did and read only about half the books on the list, so we’ll see if I can predict my reading preferences a little better this time. My reading mood is all over the place right now and I just couldn’t narrow my choices down to ten, so fifteen it is!
