Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
It has now been moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl.
So I’ve decided to sort of mix in some of my ARCs as well as a few backlist books I need to read into my “spring TBR”, there’s definitely a ton more ARCs though *I have a problem*. Mostly though I think this is a TBR I can stick too and hopefully the backlist books won’t get pushed back.
10.) Furyborn by Claire Legrand
This is an upcoming May release that I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of, it’s a YA fantasy that is told from alternating POVs and timelines about a girl with magical powers that must face deadly trials to prove she is the prophesied Sun Queen and a bounty hunter who joins a group of rebels in order to search for her missing mother.
Overall I really dig the whole “sun queen or blood queen” thing….
9.) Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
This is another ARC I have to read, YA fantasy inspired by Vikings. I’m in.
8.) Blood & Sand by C.V. Wyk
I have been trying to fit this into my reading schedule to no avail recently, I’m hoping to finally squeeze it in since it is a review copy and is also about Spartacus and gladiator fights. Sounds right up my alley.
7.) Little Monsters by Kara Thomas
I really enoyed “The Darkest Places” and it’s probably my highest recommended YA thriller, it’s that good. I need to read her latest book and prepare for her upcoming release this summer!
6.) The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst
Because…that title though. Also I’ve heard great things and I think I’m ready to dive into a great fantasy story again, the kind that while completely consume my soul. I’m ready.
5.) Onyx & Ivory by Mindee Arnett
Hopefully this one won’t fall into all of the tropey-ness we see in other YA fantasy because the heroine sounds like she’ll be badass and there’s dragons. But mostly dragons.
4.) Devils Unto Dust by Emma Berquist
This one is kind of like a western with zombies, and I love horror.
3.) Pacifica by Kristen Simmons
Pirates. That’s all I need to know.
2.) Royals by Rachel Hawkins
I’m a complete sucker for contemporaries featuring royalty….
1.) A Thousand Beginnings & Endings by Various Authors
This is an anthology full of re-tellings/re-imaginings of folklore and mythology from East and South Asia. And it’s probably the ARC I’m most looking forward to reading because I just know it’s going to be amazing.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
Do you have any of these books on your TBR as well?
What are some books on your Spring TBR?
