Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR List
A mix of books that I own and books that I don’t own yet (but probably will quite soon). These are not quite in any particular order. I wish I could say I have will power when it comes for choosing my next book(s) ahead of time! Most of the time when I try I end up changing my mind at the drop of a dime.
The Winner’s Crime, by Marie Rutkoski. Not yet owned and I DON’T KNOW WHY. Actually I do. I’m trying so hard to manage my money better when it comes to books. I think I’ll end up ordering this on BN.com with my 20% off coupon to get the best deal, but my goodness do I need it soon!
The Infinite Sea, by Rick Yancey. Very similar situation to TWC except I just finished The Fifth Wave about a week ago. Very, very rarely do I buy whole series without reading just one of the books. Also will probably buy on BN.com.
Trickster’s Queen, by Tamora Pierce. Owned for several years now…. My dad gifted this one to me shortly after Trickster’s Choice though I hadn’t yet read that one. Part of me is curious what happens in the second and final book in the Daughter of the Lioness duology, but I’m also worried that it’ll be a sluggish read like TC was.
Trigger Warning, by Neil Gaiman. Owned for about two weeks — it was a birthday gift from my Mimi (grandma on Dad’s side). I have only read two other Gaiman books and the experiences I had were polar opposites, but when I add in the Doctor Who episodes he’s written, I generally favor him! Very excited for some of his short stories.
Red Queen, by Victoria Aveyard. Owned for about two weeks — a birthday present from Mom and Dad. I’ve been reading somewhat mixed reviews, most about how it’s too similar to Red Rising. But I haven’t read that one yet, either, so that will probably act in my favor. I’m still so curious!
The Red Pyramid, by Rick Riordan. Mr. Riordan is one of my exceptions to owning whole series before reading a book. PJO and HoO are loves of mine so I figured The Kane Chronicles were a safe bet too! The box set was a Christmas gift a couple months ago.
For Darkness Shows the Stars, by Diana Peterfreund. I have more guilt for this one because in the ten months I’ve owned it, I’ve almost picked it up about as many times. It needs to happen already.
Ancillary Justice, by Ann Leckie. Almost the same situation as FDStS, but guiltier because SCI-FI! And space opera? And multiple awards? I am ashamed of my belatedness with this one. NEEDS TO HAPPEN.
The Mime Order, by Samantha Shannon. I was so excited to buy this book on release day…and I still haven’t read it. I guess work and general life keeps getting in the way? Also I know it’ll be somewhat of a time commitment. Not a huge one, but still.
Out of all these, is there one in particular that you would recommend I read next?? I need some guidance! (:
