Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books on My Spring TBR

Hello all!

TTT

It’s that time again, so let’s get started!  Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, so head over there for more lists and to participate!  I missed last week, so I’m excited to be back in the mix.

This week’s topic is: Books on My Spring TBR.  So if you know me, you know that I don’t really make TBR lists, especially monthly, because I like to read what I’m in the mood for and I know I will ignore my TBR most of the time.  However, there are books that I’d like to get to this year, and a season also seems like a reasonably long time to set a TBR for.  Most of these books will count toward my Mount TBR Challenge because of my “read 5 before buying 1” policy (which is only moderately working), but there is at least one book coming out this spring that I’d like to get my hands on.  Let’s get into the list…

SpringTBR-1SpringTBR-2

1)  The Leftovers – Tom Perrotta [I have read another book by Tom Perrotta, and I LOVED it (I may re-read it soon).  I bought this soon after, yet never read it.  And now it’s a TV show, I think.  I doubt I’m going to get into the show, but I do want to read the book; I’ve heard good things.]
2)  Wildflowers – Lyah Beth Leflore  [This is one of my books that I’ve owned since my early college years and just haven’t read yet.  I should have gotten rid of it a long time ago, but I’m going to try to read it again.  If I can’t get through it this time, I’m afraid it’s headed for an unhaul.]
3)  Subliminal – Leonard Mlodinow  [I’ve been excited about this book since I got it YEARS ago, and I think it’s finally time to crack it open.  This is a non-fiction read.]
4)  Their Eyes Were Watching God – Zora Neale Hurston  [This will be a re-read for me. It’s been awhile since I’ve read it, and I feel like it’s time to pay this one some attention again.]
5)  Lady Midnight – Cassandra Clare  [I just got this book a few days ago;  I didn’t realize how HUGE it is!  But I’m all in for the Shadowhunter stories, so I’ll get to this one soon.]
6) The Now Effect – Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D  [I like to clear my mind and set goals in the spring, rather than the beginning of the year.  This way I have a chance to set my bearings in a new year and get an idea as to what goals will benefit me most in the rest of the year.  Living mindfully is something that I have been wanting to pay more attention to for quite some time, so this book will be perfectly timed.  This is non-fiction.]
7)  Days of Blood and Starlight – Laini Taylor  [I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone in January, and I want to finish this trilogy this year, and this will give me time to purchase and read the last book well before the end of the year.]
8)  The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood  [This is another re-read, but it’s one of my favorite books and I haven’t read it in years, so I think it’s time!]
9)  Saga, Vol.1 – Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples [I have started this graphic novel, and like it so far, so I want to finish it to determine if I’m going to continue with the series over the course of the year.]
10)  Three Wishes -Liane Moriarty  [I have started this on my Kindle, and since most of my unread books are on there, I need to start knocking that pile down as well…]
Anywho, I hope that you all enjoyed this list, and if you have thoughts on any of this, let me know in the comments.  Thanks all!  🙂

  1. Great list! I was thinking about Their Eyes Were Watching God again recently, too. I’ve never read The Handmaid’s Tale, but I think I have a copy on my kindle. I just got Lady Midnight, too! (It’s also on my TTT list!) Hope you enjoy the rest of the series by Laini Taylor. I really liked it. 🙂

    1. I really love The Handmaid’s Tale, and definitely recommend it if you already have it (although I know how stockpiling books goes, smh). Lady Midnight is HUGE, but I’m so looking forward to it. I’ll check out your list; thanks for reading!

    1. Their Eyes Were Watching God is REALLY good. I read it first in high school, and it’s been years since I last read it, so I’m excited to get back into it. I want to do a review on it, but I definitely have to read it again before I do that. I’m not doing that great at sticking to my “read 5, buy 1” policy, but it’s helping a little bit. My will power is not great when it comes to books, smh. Thanks so much for reading! 🙂

  3. I read the first two volumes of Saga and really liked them so far. I’m just waiting for my library to get the other ones in. Their Eyes Were Watching God is one of my favorite stories that I’ve read for school. I’ve heard so many good things about The Handmaid’s Tale, I want to read it soon.

    1. Yeah, I’m really liking Saga so far as well. I read both Their Eyes Were Watching God and The Handmaid’s Tale in high school, and I remember loving them both. I want to read them again to see if I have a new perspective on them now. Thanks so much for reading; I’ll check out your list soon!
