Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR

A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

I'm so excited for Top Ten Tuesday to be back. I love making lists of books and it's been sad not seeing other people's lists because I always find so many amazing new books that way. That is why I am particularly excited for this list. Also, as usual you all will get a preview of my monthly themes with these lists. Okay, here are the books I am planning to read this spring.

The Rest of March - Contemporary (or not really any more)

1.) A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi - Add to Goodreads
I am so excited about this book. I can't wait to find out Guari's story and to explore more of the world of this series. I am actually starting this one very soon and I can't wait.

2.) Night Witches by Kathryn Lasky - Add to Goodreads
I'm on the blog tour for this and I'll have a review up in about a week. It's a total Cassi book too which is super exciting. It's not contemporary (neither is CoW) but I kind of front-loaded my month with themed books and am now are on other genres.

April - Science Fiction

3.) Defy the Stars by Claudia Grey - Add to Goodreads
I loved Claudia's dimensional travel series (the Firebird trilogy) and am really excited to see what she does with more hard sci-fi. Plus in general, this sounds really good.

4.) Shadow Run by AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller- Add to Goodreads
I always love when books are compared to Firefly. Basically it just means that it's going to be a space opera with roguish characters and I am all for it. This definitely sounds like that kind of theme plus there is political intrigue.

5.) The Edge of the Abyss by Emily Skrutskie - Add to Goodreads
I am so freaking pumped for the sequel to The Abyss Surounds Us. I loved that book and I can't wait to find out what happens next. More pirates, f/f romance, and sea monsters please.

6.) The Shadow Land by Elisabeth Kostova - Add to Goodreads
I'm a huge fan of Elizabeth Kostova's work so when I saw her new book on Netgalley I had to request it. I got approved, which is amazing, and I can't wait to read it.

7.) The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli - Add to Goodreads
One of my most anticipated books of the spring. I loved Simon Vs. and I am super excited to read Becky's second book. And this one sounds totally like the kind of contemp I will enjoy too.

May - Freebie Month

8.) The Love Interest by Cale Deitrich - Add to Goodreads
I just got approved for this on Netgalley and I am so excited. It's about teenage spies and two guys fighting over a girl who is their assignment. This could either be amazing or terrible. Only time will tell.

9.) The Pearl Thief by Elizabeth Wein - Add to Goodreads
This is my one preorder for the month and I'm pretty excited. I mean it's a Code Name Verity prequel. I talked about it in a WoW post a month ago so head over there to flail about it with me but mostly I want to say... *tries not to burst into tears*

10.) The Crown's Fate by Evelyn Skye - Add to Goodreads
This will be my audiobook for May because I loved the audio for The Crown's Fate so much. I mean it's narrated by Steve West and I can't wait to find out what happens next for these characters, especially Nikolai.

There you have it, the books I am most excited to read this spring. What books are you excited to read? Do we have any in common? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. Fantastic list! A lot of these books are new to me, so I will have to check them out. I want to read The Pearl Thief as well. Wein is an outstanding writer and Code Name was a powerful book.

  2. I am so excited for The Upside of Unrequited!! I can't wait to get to it. Hope you enjoy all of these!

  3. I'm also really excited for The Upside of Unrequited. So happy to see it on so many lists today.

  4. I have never heard of The Love Interest. It sounds awesome!

  5. The Shadow Land by Elisabeth Kostova seems to be on everyones list, looks interesting. Great selection

  6. The Love Interest is definitely one of my most anticipated releases of the year - it sounds like such an interesting twist to the otherwise overplayed love-triangle trope. I didn't love Claudia Gray's other series, but Defy the Stars sounds wonderful. Great list. :)

  8. I can't wait to see what you think of Night Witches because that sounds so YOU!! And how did I not know about a Code Name Verity prequel?? I'm so out of the loop these days!!

  9. OOh nice! I'm curious, yet hesitant about Defy the Stars! Space books always worry me, so I wait for the reviews to come in so I see what I'm getting into! And sooo excited for The Crown's Fate! I really wanted to read The Crown's Game last year but then I heard it was awesome, yet had a killer cliffhanger and that it was a duology, so I did the best thing for my sanity and decided to wait to binge it! LOL! Luckily I just won an ARC so making it a top priority for April!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
