Hi all! I hope you’ve all had a good week, I just came back from London, where I went to Neal Shusterman, Victoria Schwab and Samantha Shannon’s book event with my friend Hannah, which was awesome, getting to see three of my favourite authors all at the same time is probably one of my favourite ever bookish experiences, well worth the 10 hour round trip to London (and thankfully not snowed off! Seriously, it’s nearly official Spring and we’re still having snow?).
Anyway, it’s Tuesday and so that means another Top Ten Tuesday from Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we’re talking our Spring TBRs, otherwise known as the list of books we say we’re going to read this Spring and then abandon for other books that we feel more like reading. So here we go, this is what I’m planning to read this Spring, whether I do or not is another story:
- Moxie-Jennifer Mathieu
This is my current read, after reading The Exact Opposite Of Okay, I was feeling in the mood for more feminist books, and this one was on my #RockMyTBR list for this year, so I figured why not make it my next read? By the time you read this I’ll probably have finished it though, as I’m writing this ahead of time, and I’ll have been on a 10 hour round trip to London!
2. Rose Under Fire-Elizabeth Wein
Another of my #RockMyTBR books, I’m hoping to read this one in April. I love WWII stories and I really enjoyed Wein’s other book, Code Name Verity and liked its prequel The Pearl Thief, so I’m hoping I will enjoy Rose Under Fire also.
3. Hero At The Fall-Alwyn Hamilton
I have been eagerly awaiting this book’s release since last year, so of course when it released in February, I got it on release day and then proceeded to stare at it for the next month, you know as per usual. I will definitely get to it next month though, I want to see how this series ends!
4. Language of Thorns-Leigh Bardugo
This is another one of my #RockMyTBR books, which I’ll probably read in May. I love it when authors expand the stories and mythologies of their worlds, so an entire book of tales that are told to children in the Grisha-verse, is exactly my kind of thing.
5. Daughter of The Burning City-Amanda Foody
This was on my Autumn TBR for last year and I totally failed at getting round to it, so I’m going to make it a priority this Spring. I will also have Amanda Foody’s other book Ace of Shades to read, but I want to read this one first.
6. The Burning Maze-Rick Riordan
Naturally, Rick Riordan’s upcoming new release is high priority for me, as he’s one of my favourite authors, so I’m definitely hoping to read this one as close to release as possible, this will probably be my reward for finishing my exams!
7. The Toymakers-Robert Dinsdale
I had this on my Winter TBR, and I totally meant to read it before release date, but it’s taken me longer to read The Hazel Wood than I expected. I only have one month left to read this before it expires from my Adobe Reader, so I’ll definitely be reading it soon!
8. Shatter Me-Tahreh Mafi
I got this from Netgalley as I guess it’s being released in the UK soon, although I honestly thought it was already out here, so I’m not really sure why it’s there, but hey ho! I’ve heard mixed things about this series, but it sounds good, so I’m excited to give it a try.
9. Not If I Save You First-Ally Carter
I’m so excited for this one! I haven’t read a new Ally Carter book in ages, I loved her Heist Society books when I was a teenager so I’m excited to see what her new offering is like.
10. Almost Love-Louise O’Neill
Like I said earlier, I really want to read more feminist books this year and a new Louise O’Neill is a great place to start. A lot of books feature toxic relationships without actually acknowledging that the relationship is destructive so it will be interesting to see a deconstruction of that kind of relationship where the toxicity is acknowledged.
Over to you! What books are on your Spring TBR? Have you read any of these? Did you like them? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s topic is Books That Take Place In Another Country, but I think I’ve done a similar TTT topic before, so I might change it to something else, we’ll see. In the meantime, I’m hoping to do another discussion post and a Writing Corner post before the end of the month, so stay tuned for those.
