6. A 2017 Release You’ve Already Read & Recommend To Everyone:

I haven't been requesting ARC's all that much in the last few months because I've been getting very picky. I don't want to end up hating a book just because I'm obligating myself to read and review it. So I don't have an ARC's to recommend, but I would recommend: Chaos Unleashed (Chaos Rises #2) By Pippa DaCosta! I know it hasn't released as of this post going live, but everything that woman writes is incredible and I recommend it to everyone.
