top ten books on my spring tbr list
posted by soe 1:58 am

The seasonal Top Ten Tuesday lists at That Artsy Reader Girl tend to be among my favorites, partly because they just require I give you a list of the books I’m looking forward to reading the most over the next three months. Easy!

Here are ten I’m hoping to get to this spring:

  1. Let’s start easy. These are my two most recent purchases: Reynard the Fox by Anna Louise Avery
  2. Ring the Hill by Tom Cox
  3. Adding to my British animal theme, Jasper Fforde’s The Constant Rabbit was a Christmas gift. Plus, I will always read everything he writes, even if I don’t always love it.
  4. I haven’t yet picked up Murder on Cold Street, the latest in my favorite mystery series by Sherry Thomas, because they only had one copy at the bookstore at Christmas and it was a gift. The library across the river has a print copy, so I’ve requested they put it on hold for me.
  5. An Unexpected Peril by Deanna Raybourn only came out at the beginning of this month. I’ve added it to my library holds list, as well.
  6. The final book in Talia Hibbert’s Brown Sisters trilogy, Act Your Age, Evie Brown!, also just came out.
  7. Gish Jen’s The Resisters, a baseball meets sci fi dystopia novel.
  8. I heard about Serena Singh Flips the Script by Sonya Lalli during a local bookstore’s Galentine’s Day event, plus it’s set here in D.C.!
  9. Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse was one of the Alex Award Winners, a category of adult fiction which tends to appeal to young adults.
  10. Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo

What are you hoping to read this spring?

Great list, Clap When You Land is longlisted for the Carnegie Medal – and Poet X was fantastic!
These are the books on my Spring TBR list!
