Posted January 28, 2015 by Christy / 17 Comments

Erica’s Authors to Read We all have so many books that just compile our TBR, but mostly what I have been noticing on my TBR are the authors that I have not gotten to read, yet. There are so many authors that I just haven’t gotten to yet, and I know that many of you will see them and totally judge me.

Armentrout  Tahereh Mafi Veronica Roth Marie Lu    Jeaniene Frost Christy’s Authors to Read I’m kind of ashamed to put some of these authors on here because I […]
