This may seem a little mean, however, it’s becoming a form of tradition in the New Year to talk about both the good and bad reads of the previous.

This list mostly consists on retelling of classic literature and YA Fantasy, as my project is somewhat those spliced together. I’ve found a few I’m really excited to read, yet I’ll still include those I’ve already read as I’m planning on studying them a little more. Anyways, onto the list!
