    The Book Predictions tag

    Good morning bookworms! Because the lovely Shanah is still on a blog hiatus, and there’s no Top 5 Tuesday, all Tuesdays in July will be dedicated to catching up on tags! Which, will barely make a dint in the pile of tags I have HOARDED (like a dragon – seriously, I have 52 on my list, and that does not count doubles… maybe I need to dedicate a day to them every week for a while…).
