Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
I am very excited for this weeks topic, both because I am someone who quite enjoys making seasonal TBR’s, even if I very rarely stick to them, and because it means that we are finally nearing Spring after months of cold weather. This list is a huge mix of different books as I always like to switch up my reading rather than sticking it a particular genre or style of book. I also know that it is extremely unlikely that I am going to get to all of these books, but nonetheless I do hope to at least read the majority of these over the next few months, especially those that were also on my Winter TBR.
So here are ten books that I hope to get to this spring!
This is one of the books that I am most guilty about not having read yet, as it is one of the most famous and well-loved classics of all time, and so I would love to finally get round to reading it for myself this spring. Not only have I never read this particular book, but I have also never read a Jane Austen novel, and so I definitely think that it is high time to do just that.
I feel like I have been seriously lacking contemporaries recently, and so I would love to get back into reading them in the spring, hopefully with this book being one of the first I pick up. I also read Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda back in December, and absolutely loved it, so I am very excited to read another book by Becky Abertalli that I’m sure I will love as well.
After reading the second book in the Infernal Devices trilogy, Clockwork Prince, in January, I am determined to not leave it too long before picking up this final book and finishing this series. With the last book in the Dark Artifices series also now not being released until December, I am hoping that if I can read this one soon, then I might be able to catch up on that trilogy in time for the release of the final book.
By now, this book has been on so many TBR’s and lists of books I desperately need to get round to, that I will be so annoyed with myself if I do not read this book this spring. I have no good reason as to why I haven’t read this book yet, hence why I am putting it at the top of my TBR, and so if I only read one book from this TBR, it has to be this one.
I recently reread the first book in this series, Shadow and Bone, in order to be able to finally give this second book another read, as the first time I tried to I ended up DNFing it because I just could not remember what had happened beforehand. So, now that I know what takes place in the first book, I desperately need to continue on and read this book soon so that I don’t end up with the same problem I had the first time.
I don’t usually read a ton of sci-fi, but after rereading Illuminae and then Obsidio this past week, I am suddenly really craving more spacey books, and so this one seems the perfect choice to fulfil that desire. I am also super excited to dive into this one as I’ve heard that its written really beautifully and is quite a unique book in itself, so I am really hoping that this Spring I can finally discover this story for myself.
This series has been at the top of my TBR now for so long that this Spring I finally want to get around to actually starting it. I also recently read V. E. Schwab’s Monsters of Verity duology, so now I am even more determined to read more of her books, with this one seeming like a great place to start in order to do that.
This is another series that I have been meaning to start for the longest time, especially as I love Sarah J. Maas’ other series, Throne of Glass, and so I am determined to finally read this one as well soon. The synopsis of this one also describes as a beauty-and-the-beast retelling including fae, two things which make me instantly want to pick this book up even more than I do already.
Last summer I read my first book by Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go, and so after really enjoying that one I would love to finally dive into another of his books this spring. This is possibly another of his more famous novels, but other than that I don’t really know anything about this book, and so I can not wait to dive into this one, and discover this story for myself, hopefully soon!
Finally, this is another classic that I would love to get round to at some point during the next few months after reading and thoroughly enjoying my first Agatha Christie novel at the end of last year. Not only do I really want to read another good murder mystery, but I have also been doing really badly at reading classics recently, so hopefully I can somewhat fix that by reading this one very soon.
