Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had good weeks since I last did one of these, last week began rather uneventfully for me, but then I passed my driving theory test and met Victoria Schwab again all in the space of two days, so it ended pretty well. I’ve also finished my project, and started writing my reflective essay, so they end for this semester is nearly in sight, thank goodness!
Anyway, since it’s Tuesday, I’m back with another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we’re doing another of our annual TBR topics, our Spring TBR. I did reasonably well on my Spring TBR, I’ve read seven of the books on there fully & finished half of a third. I’m still not done with Kingdom of Ash, at this point I honestly don’t think I’ll ever be done with Kingdom of Ash and the other book on my TBR had it’s release date pushed back to December, so that one really isn’t on me. Still I’m really pleased I did so well on my Winter TBR because I’ve been ridiculously busy doing my project so spending any time at all reading has been difficult.
Anyway enough about my Winter TBR, this is what I’m planning on reading this Spring:
- Becoming-Michelle Obama
This is my current read and I’m actually really enjoying it-I don’t mean to sound surprised there, I love Michelle Obama, it’s more a case of I don’t usually read non-fiction so I’m not used to sitting and enjoying a memoir! It’s been a nice change of pace for me though, I love fiction but occasionally you need a break.
2. Catwoman: Soulstealer-Sarah J Maas
This is my April #RockMyTBR challenge book. I have to admit I’m a little apprehensive of this one since superheros aren’t really my thing, but since it’s Sarah J Maas, I am willing to give it a shot. At least this is one Sarah J Maas book that isn’t a huge mammoth so it should take me a normal person length of time to finish! (*side eyes Kingdom of Ash*)
3. A Girl Called Shameless-Laura Steven
I just got this one as a giveaway prize and I’m super excited to dive in, I really want to see where Izzy O’Neill’s adventures go next. I’m probably going to be reading this after my project’s been submitted and I think after three months of project work, a good, funny, short read is probably just what I need.
4. Descendant of The Crane-Joan He
I’m about halfway through this one, I’ve actually been reading it since the beginning of the month and it was on my Winter TBR. I’m in two minds about this one, I love the Chinese inspired world and the characters, but I was kind of expecting it to have more magic and it’s a lot of dense political manoeuvrings which aren’t really my thing.
5. Uprooted-Naomi Novik
This will be my May #RockMyTBR book. I’m again a little apprehensive because I didn’t finish Spinning Silver, but I’m hoping that I will enjoy this one more, especially since I’ve heard nothing but good things about it.
6. Finale-Stephanie Garber
AGHH I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK! My friend and I went in on the Fairyloot box together, but she’s keeping the book as I had already preordered the signed Waterstones edition. Anyway, I can’t wait to see how Tella and Scarlett’s journey ends and whether they manage to defeat Legend once and for all.
7. We Are Blood and Thunder-Kesia Lupo
I’ll admit I don’t actually know all that much about We Are Blood and Thunder but I’ve been hearing good things from other bloggers, so I’m willing to give it a chance-all I really know is that it’s set in a world where magic is feared and that usually works out pretty well as a storyline for me, so hopefully I will enjoy it!
8. King of Fools-Amanda Foody
I just got accepted for this on Netgalley and I’m so excited! I enjoyed Ace of Shades when it came out last year, but I have a feeling that King of Fools is going to be even better, Ace of Shades was definitely the set up book, I think we’re really going to get into the action here and I can’t wait.
9. Romanov-Nadine Brandes
I’m also ridiculously excited to read this book, I loved Fawkes when I read it last year and a Romanov retelling with magic? Sounds just perfect.
10. The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue-Mackenzi Lee
This will be my June #RockMyTBR book and I have to say I’m looking forward to finally seeing what all the hype around this one is about. I’ve read a couple of historical fiction books this year, but nothing that I’ve really, really loved yet, so I’m hoping this one will fit the bill.
So there we have it, the books I’m attempting to knock off my TBR this Spring. I’m pretty confident I should be able to manage them all, once I’ve handed my project and essay in, I have a month and a half of uninterrupted reading time before my parents come and get me from Uni so I’ll probably spend a large portion of that reading. What book are on your TBR this Spring? Have you read any of mine? Are you excited for any of mine (since half of them haven’t actually come out yet!)? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s topic is an audio freebie, and since one of my resolutions is to try more audiobooks (I am going to have to actually get started on that one once my project is done!), I’m going to make a list of the Audiobooks I Want To Try.
Meanwhile, the Spring equinox is coming up tomorrow, so I’m going to have my Quarterly Rewind up for you guys on Thursday, so keep an eye out for that!
