Happy Tuesday, Bibliobabes!
Earlier this month my grandfather passed away. He was my last living blood grandparent, and though I only have a handful of memories with him growing up (we lived very far apart), they were fantastic memories and he was a tremendously wonderful person who was loved by many. Last Monday I traveled the 7 hours with my family to his memorial service to celebrate my grandfather's colorful and well enjoyed life.
Then, on Friday, we found out that our little boop is a BOY! Mass happy hysteria ensued.
Finally, over the weekend I drove the 3+ hours to visit my parents for the weekend. I'm currently back at their house for a one week "vacation". This time is being spent to finish the first draft of my book, which I hope to begin querying later this year.
AS USUAL it's a riot here. Now for Top Ten Tuesday!

Click on Each Book Cover to go to its Goodreads Page
"A Court of Mist and Fury" by Sarah J. Maas - I've only been waiting for this since LAST YEAR.
"The Inn Between" by Marina Cohen - I have the ARC copy of this and it's being currently read, BUT it's technically spring time so it counts!
"Stone Field" by Christy Lenzi - Another ARC I'm very interested in getting in to! Inspired by Wuthering Heights.
"Everland" by Wendy Spinale - Peter Pan. Enough said.
"The Gallery" by Laura Marx Fitzgerald - This one sounds very fascinating, and the cover is absolutely gorgeous which is always a big plus.
"The Wooden Prince" by John Claude Bemis - More fairytale retellings! And of a fairytale that rarely gets retold! Go get 'em John Claude Bemis!
"The Girl Of Ink and Stars" by Kiran Millwood Hargrave - Talk about an adventure. Magic, mystery, and a kick-rear female antagonist. Yes please.
"Wishing Day" by Lauren Myracle - A lovely and magical sounding MG. I love magical coming of age stories.
"Harmony House" by Nic Sheff - Sounds creepy. I like creepy. Not too many shining reviews on this one, but I think it deserves a chance.
"The Trials of Apollo" by Rick Riordan - More Rick Riordan! I CAN NOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS GUY!
