Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR List. I was lousy at following these lists first, but after a while started doing better. I read about half of my winter list, so not too bad. Only time will tell how I’ll do this time around, especially with long books on my list…
1. Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman
This was on my winter TBR, but I knew that was unrealistic anyhow. I will definitely read it soon though… probably next, in fact! I just got my copy and it’s so pretty!
2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Guys, I’m almost done with Harry Potter! I won’t know what to do once I finish! Oh wait, yes I will… read all these other awesome books on my list… though I will also be a little sad it’s over.
3. Save the Cat by Blake Snyder
This is a writing book that I have heard is helpful with plot. This could come in handy during Camp NaNoWriMo.
4. Do Over by Jon Acuff
I have loved all of Jon Acuff’s books so far and look forward to reading his new book, coming out in April! (P.S. If you pre-order, you get a free copy of the e-book that disappears on release day.)
5. The Well of Ascension & 6. The Hero of Ages, both by Brandon Sanderson
This spring I will finally follow-up on Mistborn! Nikki said I’ve got to read these back-to-back, so I’m planning to do just that.
7. The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand
I’m nervous about this one, because I don’t do these intense contemporaries, BUT I think it might be helpful for me as I work on my WIP, and I can get it from the library. At least I’ve heard good things… if you call crushing people’s souls a good thing…
8. All Fall Down by Ally Carter
I have this one on hold at the library, so hopefully it’ll become available at a time I can read it. I haven’t read any Ally Carter yet but have been wanting to.
9. Firefight by Brandon Sanderson
I’ve got this one on hold too. I already had to drop it once and put myself back on the waiting list again. One day I will get to it…
10. The Body Electric by Beth Revis
I bought this one recently and it sounds interesting, so I really would like to check it out sometime in the next few months!
What’s on your spring TBR?
I’m about 60 pages into Shadow Scale and was distracted by a re-read. I need to pick it up again. Woot to reading all of the HP books. I did that two years ago and was kind of sad when it ended too. :/
Distracted from Shadow Scale?! Oh no, I don’t want to hear that!
V excited for Shadow Scale, and All Fall Down is on my TBR list too. Hope you enjoy Deathly Hallows 🙂
I hope so too, but I think I will since I’ve heard all good things about it!
You’ve inspired me to keep on with my HP reread, and I just started book 4 yesterday. I feel the same way each time I do a reread – how will I move on after this magic?? But Deathly Hallows is SO good; it’s my favorite from the series 😀
It seems like a lot of people really love Deathly Hallows, so I’m looking forward to it!
I hope you love the conclusion to HP (is this a first read?) – it was one of my favorite books in the series. I haven’t read any of the others, but I’m also hoping to read some Brandon Sanderson this spring.
Yes, it is my first read! I’ve been enjoying the series!
MISTBORNNNNNNNNNNN. 😀 I 100% support your decision to read them back to back, even though I have yet to read Hero of Ages. I also have to read Shadow Scale soon, I don’t know when I’ll get to it, but I’ll try something this season 🙂
Yessssss, and don’t listen to Shadow Scale on audio! Just in case it’s confusing! I have to say when I reread Seraphina recently the garden stuff made so much more sense than it did the first time…
I was so sad when I finished The Deadly Hallows, I couldn’t believe that it was all over. I cried! The Body Electric is one I’d love to read as I’ve yet to read anything by Beth. And I look forward to your review on the Cynthia Hand book, I’ve been tempted by it a few times but something is holding me back from reading it. Your review might help me decide for once and for all 🙂
Ack, no pressure on me then! 🙂
Although most of these didn’t make my list, I’m still looking forward to them. Cynthia Hand is an amazing author, so I’ll be looking forward to her contemporary, too. 🙂
I haven’t read her other books, but it’s good to know you enjoyed them!
I’m so excited for you to finish HP!
So very excited about Shadow Scale! I just finished listening to the audio of Seraphina and cannot WAIT to get started on Shadow Scale! 🙂
A lot of Brandon Sanderson on this list. My sister really likes his books, so I’m thinking about giving them a try. The Deathly Hallows took me 2 tries to get through it, but when I did, it became possibly my favorite book in the series. I hope you like it! 🙂
You should definitely check out Mistborn! It’s wonderful! I liked Steelheart too but Mistborn was the best book I had read in a long while.
