  9. I have this one somewhere on TBR mountain. I should dig it out and put it on my summer reading stack. My YA book this week is The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May. Happy reading!

  16. I love this Freda and even more so that it's on Instagram! I don't have much blog space to post a lot of memes, so looking forward to taking part in this one too. I have Zeroes on my shelf but haven't had time to pick it up as yet. Really looking forward to it. Thanks so much for sharing.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
