TTT: Books that made me flail like a dragon and fall off of chairs

2016 was a year of me and chairs not getting along. Picture it,¬†Sicily 1931, a dragon lounging among pillows when something amazing happens in the book and amongst my joyous (or raging) flailing, pillows start to fly and WHAM. Dragon on the floor.

TTT: Books I’m looking forward to in the first half of 2017

I have been devouring reading a bunch of books lately, but my TBR still takes up an entire bookcase that may or may not be planning world domination.
