via Top Ten Tuesday – The Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Read List
As per That Artsy Reader Girl’s Blog, “Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
How it works:
I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.

Title: The Daughter’s of Salem
Author: Thomas Gilbert
Book Length: 106 pages
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
Genre: Fiction, Graphic Novel
Brief Summary of the Plot from Goodreads: Colonial Massachusetts, early 1690’s.

My review has major spoilers, so read on with caution.
