My Review:5 STARS
This was the first time I ever took a moment to read a book list like this. I found some real exciting books that I cannot wait to be released or the ones that has been and I haven't read yet. My to-read list has officially became way longer than what I expected it to ever be. I am a real picky reader but since becoming a reviewer for NetGalley and from this book, my whole world has opened up to books I thought I would never find interesting to read!
