Rebellion Blog Tour: Interview with Stephanie Diaz

Rebellion Blog Tour: Interview with Stephanie Diaz

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given, and this week’s topic is: Top Ten Books I Purchased But Still Haven’t Read This TTT topic was supposed to be about a particular genre, but I didn’t want to limit myself.  So, I instead decided to focus on books I already own but still have not read.  In other words, I have no excuse.  There was a similar TTT topic a… Read more »
