Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books on my Spring TBR

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week the theme is Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR. There are…ahem…a ton of books that fall into this category! But I will list the ones that I truly hope to finish by the Summer Solstice, and I am not including the two books that I am reading right now.

The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda. I have an eARC from Netgalley, and Megan Miranda also happens to be one of my neighbors, so I absolutely hope to have her latest book finished by the April 11th publication date!

The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova. Another book set to be published on April 11, and I also happen to have an eARC of this one. I really enjoyed The Historian, so I have high hopes for Kostova’s latest novel.

The Murder on the Links and The Man in the Brown Suit by Agatha Christie. Both of these are part of my long-term personal challenge to read all of Agatha Christie’s mystery novels in publication order.

A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin – I had planned on reading the first few books in the Game of Thrones series this year, but for some reason I keep procastinating…especially when the shiny eye candy of new releases draws my attention away from older fantasy series (ahem…Conjuring of Light). We’ll see what happens with these two, but I do hope to at least have read the first one by the start of summer.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan – I am slightly ashamed to admit I have never read any of David Levithan’s novels, and this is one of two that were on my list for this year. I already know and love John Green!

Every Day by David Levithan – Both of these two books will also hopefully help meet two of the categories in the #DiversityBingo2017 Challenge that I am participating in this year.

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. I keep hearing so many great things about this book, I need to read it NOW.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon – This contemporary YA novel will be published in May, but I already have my name on the holds list at the library!

Happy Tuesday! I look forward to seeing what is on your TTT this week. Please feel free to leave a link in the comments!

  1. oh wow, Miranda is your neighbour? That is great. Have you read her first book? I hope that you will enjoy Perfect Stranger. Homegoing is also on my TBR. I hope to read it soon. Happy reading

      • I’m less eager to read it since I read a breakdown on the sexual assault statistics in his books and the improbability of it. Starting to think Mr. Martin might have some issues with women he’s working out in his books.

      • I just did a quick google search about that, I didn’t know! Wow – it sounds as if the books have 4x as much sexual assault than the show (which I haven’t watched) – the numbers are staggering. As a sexual assault survivor, I am not a fan at all of authors who use rape as a plot device, or rely on it for character development in a heavy-handed way. I might have to re-think delving into that series.

      • Yeah. And with the way things are right now we really don’t need a perpetuation of the belief that in some circumstances sexual assault is ok.

  2. Having an author neighbor sounds like so much fun! I love John Green books but haven’t managed to get to Will Grayson, Will Grayson yet. Also heard great things about When Dimple Met Rishi. I need to put that one on my TBR list, too!

  3. I really enjoyed Will Grayson Will Grayson when I read it a couple of years ago! I’m also very curious for When Dimple Met Rishi, because I’ve heard so many good things about it..

  4. Seeing Agatha Christie on your list is making me want to binge read some of her books again – I haven’t read any of them in years! Also a Conjuring of Light is a totally legit reason to put off reading Game of Thrones (this is probably super controversial or something, but I much rather V. E. Schwab to George R. R. Martin).

  5. I listened to the GOT series on Audible and so glad I did. They are very good, but slow at times and sooo long. One of the books was 47hours of listening! But I painted and coloured in while listening so no boredom.

  6. You’ve got a great list! I’d love to read more Agatha Christie. Homegoing is on my list too. I read the first few Game of Thrones, and they are great, but I got a little burned out after book 3. David Levithan and John Green are both great, though I havent read Will Grayson. Enjoy your reading!

  7. Great list! I love David Levithan’s books (Every Day is amazing), and I definitely think the Game of Thrones books are worth spending time on. I didn’t know Elizabeth Kostova has a new book — must check it out!
