Make sure you add these titles to your TBR

There are so many new books coming out that I am so excited for. And even the most dedicated and vigilant reader will miss when a good book is released. Until recently, I was exclusively a Historical reader. I have finally broaden my tastes, however I will always lean towards the stories set in the past. Today, I wanted to give you a few Historical Fiction titles that I am excited to see releasing soon. If you know me, you know that I have a very low level of patience. Especially when it comes to new books. When I find out my favorite author is working on a new story, it’s all I can do to wait for the book to release. The books listed below are among those books that I am LONGING to read! Thankfully, their relese dates are right around the corner now! Add them to Goodreads and/or to your Wishlist on Amazon so you don’t miss out!
