I, a Capricorn, must do every zodiac-themed book tag that exists. I simply must. When I found this tag at The Reading Fairy, I IMMEDIATELY drafted a post.

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books Too Good to Review Properly

I have a notoriously difficult time reviewing books. Today's Top Ten Tuesday asks me to list books that are SO good, they leave me speechless.

We're eleven days into January and I'm just now posting my reading stats. Blame the jerks who tried to take over my country's government last week while the president did nothing. My nerves are shot.
