Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

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.

Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jamie @ The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s theme is pretty simple and straight forward, what books are on our spring TBRs. I personally am terrible when it comes to sticking to a set TBR since I’m a mood reader so while these books on my list are ones I’d like to get to sooner rather than later these are by no means set in stone.

I will also link each title to its Goodreads page in case you guys want to check out any of these books!

10.) Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

Finnikin of the Rock (Lumatere Chronicles, #1)

I have a feeling I’m either going to love this one or really hate it since I’ve seen reviews that swing both ways. I’m not the most patient of readers so slow pacing really kills me and I’ve heard this book is pretty slow. However, I do love YA fantasy so I’m hoping it will be worth it.

9.) Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily

I’m a HUGE Peter Pan fan so of course it’s my mission in life to get my hands on all of the retellings! Unfortunately it seems there really aren’t any amazing ones out there but “Tiger Lily” has tons of glowing reviews but at the same time a few people haven’t liked it. So I’m a little nervous about this book but I’m hoping it’s actually a good Peter Pan retelling.

8.) The Call by Peadar O’Guilin

The Call

I’ve heard about this book a lot but at the same time I never hear it mentioned, it’s very underrated. While it’s listed mostly as a dystopian I think it’s YA horror as well, with some Irish mythology mixed in! I think it will be a very thrilling, quick book so I’m hoping to get to it.

7.) Front Lines by Michael Grant

Front Lines (Front Lines, #1)

An alternate history book where women and girls were eligible for service during World War II, how does that not sound awesome? I’ve always loved learning everything I could about this era in time so it’s definitely right up my alley and I am hoping to make time for it (finally) this spring!

6.) Starflight by Melissa Landers

Starflight (Starflight, #1)

YA fantasy and sci-fi are two of my absolute favorite genres and unfortunately I don’t think there are enough good YA sci-fi books out there. However, “Starflight” appears to be one of the few with all of the glowing reviews and from the sample I read it deserves every one. I’m super excited to get to this one!

5.) Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Red Rising (Red Rising, #1)

Super popular and super hyped I’ve been wanting to read “Red Rising” for a while and FINALLY got a cheaper copy off of Book Outlet. I’m excited to see if this one lives up to expectations!

4.) An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1)

I’m slowly trying to get through some of the more popular and hyped books on my TBR so this one definitely needs to get read here soon.

3.) The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

The Song of Achilles

Once again really popular book and I am ALL for an “Iliad” retelling.

2.) The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly

I have this weird sort of morbid kind of curiosity concerning cults so a book about a girl who lived 12 years in one really appeals to me. I’ve also heard TONS of good things about this book so I’m definitely going to read it soon, if not next!

1.) Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1)

This will be my first new release purchase this year because I MUST HAVE IT! And once I get my mitts on it I will drop everything and read it right away!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Books on My Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

This week’s theme is books on your Spring TBR, which is actually a pretty convenient one for me since I don’t actually plan my TBRs out because I’m a mood reader. This way I get to share with you all what books I will be reading, without actually committing to a set reading schedule.

You can also click the titles to go straight to their Goodreads pages!

10.) The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine

I actually pre-ordered this book and STILL haven’t read it, it’s been over two months and I’m slacking. However it is definitely towards the top of my TBR since I am still very much anticipating reading this book. I adore YA fantasy books so there is no good reason as to why I’ve put this off.

9.) Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Yes I’m aware this is going to be a movie and no I haven’t seen the trailer because I don’t want spoilers of any kind. I’ve heard GRAND amounts of praise for this book so it was already on my radar but now with an impending movie I HAVE to read this. Movie release dates are a good deadline for me as well but the sooner I read it the better.

8.) After the Woods by Kim Savage

One of my anticipated releases of 2016, plus I love that cover. I still need to purchase this baby but I’m definitely planning on including it in my next  book haul. It’s a mystery/thriller and I love myself a good thriller, especially with plot twists.

But mostly……..dat cover.


7.) A Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann

This book was released today FYI! I’m not too sure what kind of atmosphere this book will have, maybe it’s a horror or maybe it’s just a thriller that delivers on the creepiness. Not sure but I’m HOPING it’s creepy at least since I enjoyed Bachmann’s short story in “Slasher Girls and Monster Boys”.

6.) Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin

I’ve been wanting to read this for a while and I happened to get it on my Kindle for $2.99 so I’m just excited that I own it now. It’s an alternate history re-telling of World War II, an era I’ve always been interested in, not to mention there’s a sort of death motorcycle race. Okay, I don’t actually know if it’s a death race but it IS  a motorcycle race. Count me in for sure either way.

5.) Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

This book has been on my radar FOREVER and it finally got released! The downside is I’ve seen a lot of negative reviews but also a lot of positive ones. I’m thinking I might just have to buy this one and determine where I stand on it myself. It’s a YA fantasy that blends Western elements with Middle Eastern ones, that just sounds irresistible to me.

4.) Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto

First of all GORGEOUS cover and second of all it’s got some decent reviews. I think it sounds like some sort of super mish-mash of genres and it might be more than a little…weird. Good thing I like weird. Did I mention I love the cover yet? Even if it isn’t that great it will make a fine addition to my shelves!

3.) The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

I actually wasn’t that interested in this book right away, it seemed way too romance-y for my tastes. But when pretty much every single new YA release was getting bad reviews I had to pay very close attention to which ones actually were getting good ones. “The Forbidden Wish” is one of few that have been getting nothing but fabulous ratings, so of course I started paying closer attention and I have now come to the decision that I mus town this book.

It’s an Aladdin retelling with some other very interesting elements, plus once again we have a to-die-for cover. Can’t wait to buy this beautiful thing in my next book haul!

2.) Starflight by Melissa Landers

Once again I was not super excited for this book, it wasn’t something that really grabbed my attention right away. Like I said before when ALL of my anticipated YA books weren’t getting good reviews I had to find the ones that were getting them. “Starflight” was one that had a ton of good ratings, so naturally I nabbed a sample on my Kindle and pretty much fell in love with it right away. I’m a HUGE Firefly fan and it immediately reminded me of it, Solara is almost exactly like Kaylee Frye! I have the rest of the story awaiting my reading leisure on my Kindle now.

the winner's curse

1.) The Winner’s Cruse by Marie Rutkoski

I actually never really wanted to read this that much, but with the last book coming out this month and all of the hype I figured I would give it a go. I haven’t seen many good reviews from people with my similar tastes so my expectations are low. I’m currently reading this book which is why I placed it as #1 on this list and I’m 15% in and I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I actually like it. I’ve also heard that the end half of this book plus the sequel are even better, so I’m excited to finish!
