A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Today's topic is to list the books you are most excited about reading this spring. If you're a blog follower then you know I do themed months.
So, my April theme is dystopia. There's so much great dystopia out there and I have not read much of it. So next month my plan is to read a bunch of different books in the dystopia genre.
This book is being released on April 8th and I received an eARC via Netgalley. I'm a big fan of Ann Brashares' writing style and I'm interested to see her take on dystopia. I have already started it and I like it so far.
2.) Taken series by Erin Bowman
I won a free copy of Taken from Lynne Matson in the #NILtribe giveaway and the second book Frozen comes out this month so it's on the list.
I noticed a lot of people like me want to read this series so I'm doing it this month and a few fellow bloggers and I ate doing a readalong. ALL ARE WELCOME! You should join us.
4.) The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
This book has been in my TBR pile for the longest time. I even own a copy of the book but have not gotten around to reading it. I'm reading it as my classic dystopia.
5.) The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
This book is more Urban Fantasy and less dystopia but it's set in the future and I want to read it so I'm making it happen.
For May I've decided to take a break from the themed month. I wanted to do debuts but a few ARCs I have planned don't fit the theme so I'm throwing caution to the wind and read what I want. I'm not sure how I feel about this but sometimes you just have to be reckless.
A few weeks ago when I said I had never read this book people lost their minds about how I had to drop everything and read it so there you go. I'm choosing this as my classic for May.
7.) We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
This is the very first eARC I received on Netgalley and I've been waiting to read it until it comes out in May. I've heard great things so I'm pretty excited.
This book is one of my most anticipated books if the year and I want to read it ASAP. It is released on April 1st and sadly it does not fit into dystopia, I can't even pretend to make it work. It's one of the reasons that I'm not doing a themed month. I need to read this book, like, yesterday!
9.) Daughter of Chaos by Jenn McConnel
Ditto the above. This book comes out next week but it doesn't really fit into my themes. I may read it sooner but it's on the docket for May if I don't get to it yet.
10.) Half Bad by Sally Green
Ditto the above. This book already came out, I've been very excited to read it, and I haven't yet had the chance because it didn't fit my themes.
What are you reading this spring? Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Leave me a comment with your thoughts and as always... HAPPY READING!
