Top 10 Tuesday – Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Writing prompts (posted in advance) for “10 Books That …” and other bookish prompts in a list.
A Court of Wings and Ruin – Sarah J. Maas
I haven’t had to wait as long as others, but I am super stoked to get my hands on this and to check out the ACOWAR book tour when it hits CT in May to meet SJM.
Blackhearts & Blacksouls – Nicole Castroman
I have heard a lot of buzz around this series. I was able to get my hands on an eARC of Blacksouls, so I made sure I got my hands on Blackhearts to read as well.
The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood
I had read this a few years back for my Women’s Literature class in college and enjoyed it, but didn’t really have a lot sink in because who really retains books that are for work, rather than pleasure? I also want to re-read this before the TV show airs on Hulu. This was dystopian before dystopian was cool.
The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas
This is something that I want to read for a multitude of reasons, mainly because as a white woman I have a lot of privileges that I sometimes take for granted. With today’s political and cultural climate, I want to know more to be a better ally.
The Wrath & The Dawn – Renee Ahdieh
So the cover was what drew me in to check this book out and the synopsis is what landed it on my TBR list. Plus, I want to read more diverse authors and situations than my normal fantasy go-tos.
Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas
So is my current read, but one that I wanted to start to hold me over until I get my hands on SJM’s next release in the ACOTAR series. Hopefully this series lives up to the hype I see surrounding it.
The Lunar Chronicles – Melissa Meyer
I had been eyeing these books since they first came out, but it wasn’t until recently that I was able to pick them up to read. I’m a big fairy tale lover, so I’m always interested in retellings in all forms. I still need to pick up Cress & Winter.
Fangirl: A Novel – Rainbow Rowell
THIS HAS BEEN ON MY SHELF FOR AGES! I have no idea why I’ve let it sit so long, but I’m hoping to dig in soon.
The Circle – Dave Eggers
This was totally purchased because I’m loving the premise of the movie – and what do I do if I know a movie/TV show was sourced from a book? Well, I have to read the book ahead of time.
I think that’s a pretty solid TBR list so far for this spring. I’ll probably end up adding more as new books come out or come across my radar. I could probably keep adding to this list with all the books I want to get my hands on.
Anything good that you’re looking forward to read this spring?
