Top Ten Tuesdays: Ten Books on my Fall TBR List

Top Ten Tuesdays: Ten Books on my Fall TBR List

by

Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list our ten fall reads.

Martin, which I am dipping in and out of this past couple of weeks.

The rest of the books are sitting untouched gathering dust on my shelf.

Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list top ten books that feature diverse characters.

When I first saw the topic for this week, I thought I’d totally nailed it, and that I would be able to finish this tag within minutes. However, I was quite dismayed when I saw the final list. It doesn’t seem as diverse as I thought.
