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.
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!
That wraps up this week’s Top Ten Tuesday for me!
Are there any books on my list that are on your TBR as well? Have you read (and loved or hated) any of these books?
Let me know in the comments! Also feel free to leave a link to your TTT as well!
