Top Ten Tuesday #17

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Each week, they post a book-related prompt for book bloggers to answer. This week’s prompt is Top Ten Favourite Releases of 2016 (So Far).

My first thought upon seeing the prompt for this week was, ‘I cannot write this post.’ Why, you ask? I have not read ten 2016 releases, I have read five. That’s right, folks. FIVE.

I knew going back to uni would really cut into my reading time, but I didn’t think it would cut into it as much as it has. When I’m not doing uni work, I’m either:

  • at work;
  • doing work for the theatre company I sit on the committee of (as a hobby, mind you);
  • acting in shows and having to set aside time for rehearsals/to learn lines; or
  • stage managing shows and having to set aside time for rehearsals/organise everything before the show

Looking at this list makes me feel a lot better about being ten books behind in my GR Challenge (I have read 13/50 books, and I am ashamed of that number).

So, without further ado: the five 2016 releases I have read this year!
