Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR{Top Ten Tuesday}

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, which features (you guessed it!) top ten lists on a given topic each week. This week’s topic is. . . .Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR. I love the TBR TTTs, but I’m so bad at sticking to mine. Nonetheless, I do one every season. And limiting myself to ten? Yeah, that’s a funny joke.

Last Season’s Carry-Overs

Don’t judge me.

1.Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

grave mercy

Assassin nuns, guys. It’s gonna happen.

2. Sweetly by Jackson Pearce


I really liked Sisters Red, so I’ve been meaning to read Sweetly for a very long time, but it just never stands out to me while I’m perusing my shelves. Must make a concentrated effort to read this one.

3. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

Great and Terrible Beauty

This is not a carry-over from 2014 winter’s TBR. It is a carry-over from 2013 TBR’s. I know, I know. I have gotten a lot of pressure to read this series AND I’M GONNA DO IT. I don’t know why I haven’t read this one yet–I love Libba Bray’s writing! Update: I am currently reading this book, so I am totally doing good on this TTT list so far.

Backlist Titles

4. The Falconer by Elizabeth May


I’ve been wanting to read the Falconer for awhile, and the ebook was on sale a while back so I snatched it up. I want to read this one sooner rather than later.

5. Magnolia by Kristi Cook


This book looks like it could be really cute & fun. Sometimes I just need a nice fluffy read, and I think this one would do the job nicely from what I’ve heard. Plus, I’m always a huge fan of the hate to love romances.

6. 17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma

17 and Gone

Since I read and loved The Walls Around Us, I’ve made it a goal to read all of Nova Ren Suma’s previous work, and 17 & Gone is the last one I have left. I haven’t loved any of her books as much as I loved The Walls Around Us, but I’m holding on to hope that maybe 17 & Gone will come close.

7. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

song of achilles

This is what I know about The Song of Achilles: 1)I bought it about a month ago when the ebook was $.199(it might still be, actually), 2)Apparently it’ll tear my heart to shreds, and 3)Greek mythology.


Spring Releases

8. All the Rage by Courtney Summers

All the Rage

Release date: April 14, 2015

I’ve read all of Courtney Summers’ previous books, and so I’ve been eagerly anticipating All the Rage. Even though I haven’t loved every single book I’ve read by Summers(and I have liked them all), she’s really great at writing about teen girls so I have really high hopes for this book.

9. Conspiracy of Blood & Smoke by Anne Blankman

Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke

Release date: April 21, 2015

I was a huge fan of Prisoner of Night and Fog, so I’m eager to see how Daniel and Gretchen’s story wraps up in Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke.

10. Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley


Release date: April 28, 2015

Okay, I could do without the pitch of The Fault in Our Stars in the book’s synopsis, but other than that this book sounds potentially amazing. Spaceships!

11. Anything Could Happen by Will Walton

Anything Could Happen

Release date: May 26, 2015

*sings*. Really though, I’m kinda surprise this book hasn’t gotten a whole lot of buzz from what I see, because the summary makes it sound like this could be a really great bittersweet read.

12. Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

Crimson Bound

Release date: May 5, 2015

Cruel Beauty was just so beautifully fantastical and from everything I’ve heard, Crimson Bound apparently gets EVEN BETTER. Cannot wait.

LET’S CHAT: Read any of these? What’s on your seasonal TBR?

  1. I ALWAYS have carry overs from previous seasons, so no judgment there. 🙂
    I second the fact that A Great and Terrible Beauty is a fantastic read. Loved it back when the trilogy first released. Libba Bray writes some excellent YA supernatural historical fiction.
    I was not the biggest fan of The Song of Achilles, but so many people did love it. I’ll be curious to read your thoughts on it!
    I’m super excited to read All the Rage soon as well.
    And Crimson Bound sounds great! I need to make time to finally read Cruel Beauty first though. Soon, hopefully!
    I hope you’re able to get to all of these over the next few months!

      I really liked Beauty Queens & enjoyed The Diviners, so I think I’ll like A Great and Terrible Beauty.
      I REALLY liked Cruel Beauty. It was so unique in terms of fantasy(standalone fantasy, too, which is so rare & made me so HAPPY & it just did a lot of unexpected things).

  2. Great list! I just bought the Falconer and I am so excited to read it! I haven’t read any Libba Bray so her books are on my list too. Totally forgot to add Crimson Bound to my list!

    • Stormy

      I’ve read some Libba Bray, but her books are all SO different. I think so far I’ve read The Diviners & Beauty Queens, and often I forget they’re by the same author!

  3. Maraia

    I actually really enjoyed Magnolia. It was fluffy for sure, but in the best way. I’m a sucker for hate to love romances as well.

    Grave Mercy is good, and Dark Triumph is EVEN BETTER.

    • Stormy

      I’m not always a huge fluff reader, but sometimes I just need a light & breezy contemporary in between heavier books for sure!

    • Stormy

      The last book in that series is SO intimidating! I used to read quite a bit of high fantasy so you would think long books=no problem but that one is HUGE.

    • Stormy

      haha, you know, I think we talked about this on my last season’s TTT. One day we’ll both conquer that book!

  4. I technically have a number of books carrying over frm the previous season’s TBR list but I tend to not add them to my new list because new season = shiny new/different books! lol xD Happy reading with the books on your list, they all look great (Grave Mercy looks really interesting, I think I have it on my wishlist on GR but I can’t be sure) 🙂

    My TTT

    • Stormy

      I normally don’t carry-on from season to season, but I hoped putting these on my TBR would help me read them soon. There were several I could have had in that section but decided against.

    • Stormy

      Magnolia sounds like it’s more on the fluffy side & I think I’m due for that kind of read soon.
      I love the cover for Anything Could Happen too! It looks so. . . positive? I don’t know, it’s hard to describe, but it makes me smile.

  5. Great list! All the Rage is on mine as well. I have the ARC, I just haven’t read it yet. And I need to read 17 and Gone also. I loved The Walls Around Us so I really want to read her other books.
