Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday: “Top Ten Books On My TBR List”

Book 7.

Book 10.

Incendiary (The Premonition #4) by Amy A. Bartol

So there’s no summary for it yet and there’s no book cover….but I am a die hard fan of this series and I cannot freaking wait for this book to be released!  Evie, Reed, Z, Buns, Brownie, and Russell all need a happy ever after.  Quick.  Real quick.  I don’t think I can wait much longer.
