    Great list, as always!! I have so little time to just browse the web that I always enjoy your lists.

    I have only read one of the top books on the Goodreads list so far – The Hate U Give. That one definitely earns a spot on EVERY top list! Such an amazing, powerful book.

    I bookmarked the tips for finding a book when you can’t remember the author or title – I’m sure that will come in handy! There’s another site I have been searching for & can’t find – it’s one where you can look up books by location/setting. I heard it mentioned on a podcast once but didn’t write it down…seems like it would be really useful!

    Thanks for all the great links!
