Top Ten Tuesday | Spring TBR

top ten tuesday 2

I have a lot of books on my TBR. Like, a lot. I’m trying to knock out as many of them as I possibly can – I swear! – but I just keep buying new ones instead. Still, I’m doing pretty well (check out my Mount TBR Challenge page to see all of the TBR books I’ve read so far this year) and I am hoping to continue through spring. Only one of the books below is not yet on my bookshelf (When Breath Becomes Air), but I have a bunch of Audible credits, so I might go for the audiobook. And I don’t think I need to say that there are definitely more than ten books on my spring TBR – I’d actually be pretty disappointed if I only read 10 books this spring – but these are the ones I will definitely be reading in the next couple of months:

  1. Persuasion by Jane Austen. Recently, I picked up The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë and it really motivated me to read more classics. Which is one of my reading goals this year, so I like that. Persuasion is one of the Austen novels I have not yet read, and I think it would make a great spring read.
  2. The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan. It’s been a while since I read one of the Percy Jackson books (I am slowly making my way through the series, because I didn’t read it when I was younger), so I definitely want to pick this one up in the next month or so.
  3. The Archived by Victoria Schwab. I love Victoria/V.E. Schwab and have had this book on my TBR for a while. It looks like a great YA fantasy series, and that’s kind of what I’ve been in the mood for lately, so I think I’m going to read this one soon.
  4. Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel. I’ve had an ARC of this book for a while, but put it off because it doesn’t come out until the end of April. Still, it looks interesting, and I think it’s going to be one of the bigger sci-fi releases this year, so I’m excited to get to it.
  5. The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu by Joshua Hammer. Another ARC I need to read – this one comes out in mid-April and just looks like a cool take on history: it’s a true story about a group of librarians who pulled of a heist to save ancient manuscripts from Al Queda.
  6. When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. Since I’ve been trying to read more nonfiction, I’ve been paying more attention to new releases in this category. This book just sounds so wonderful and inspiring, and it’s gotten excellent reviews. I’m looking forward to reading it.
  7. The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I was on the fence about this book for a while, but it fits into one of my reading challenges, and a lot of book bloggers I trust have said nothing but great things about it. I can’t wait to read it!
  8. It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. This book has been on my radar for a few years, but when I saw it at Target a month or so ago, I ended up picking it up. I’m definitely in the mood for this sort of book, so I’m planning on picking it up soon!
  9. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Despite owning two of them, I have yet to read a Rainbow Rowell book. It needs to happen. I’m a bit more intrigued by Fangirl than Eleanor & Park, so this one it is.
  10. The Fellowship of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. I mentioned in my March TBR that the 25th is Tolkien Reading Day, and I will be celebrating by reading the first book in the trilogy (I have already read The Hobbit so I’m just continuing on).

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you’d like to see check out Top Ten Tuesday posts from other bloggers, or get more information on how you can join in, head on over to The Broke and the Bookish.
