|Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.|
Every once in a while I participate in this one when I either
1) Like the theme, and/or 2) Have the time!
This week's topic:
Top Ten 2014 Spring TBR Titles
Three more days until the first official day of spring. I'm not sure I believe that...
It's been some winter!
Today's Top 10 post is like a fresh breath of air, though. Spring IS coming...it just doesn't feel like it yet.
So what are ten of the books I'm most anticipating reading in the next quarter? (I'm trying to exclude fairy tales, since you'll be inundated with many of them next month during Fairy Tale Fortnight!)
In no particular order...
2) RUIN AND RISING by Leigh Bardugo
Because it is the final book and OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, so this one comes out 3 days before Summer begins. Maybe it will be a Summer read...buuuut I am going to want to read it THE DAY I get it, so it should still count for Spring!!!
My Review: SHADOW AND BONE, SIEGE AND STORM
3) THE RING AND THE CROWN by Melissa de la Cruz
I plan to read this one within the next week. I brought it to work with me over the weekend, but I just finished reading another high fantasy novel, THE KISS OF DECEPTION by Mary E. Pearson, and it gave me the biggest book hangover. I just CAN'T read another high fantasy just yet...
But oh, how I want to read this one!!!
4) TAKE ME ON by Katie McGarry
I am not a contemporary fangirl. But I AM a Katie McGarry fangirl. Her books are AMAZING, and I've been looking forward to reading about Wes. It's finally almost here!!!
My Review: PUSHING THE LIMITS, CRASH INTO YOU, CROSSING THE LINE
5) A CREATURE OF MOONLIGHT by Rebecca Hahn
I mentioned how excited I was about this book last year, but still haven't had time to read my ARC. I'm planning to read and review it during a big event coming mid-June!
Dragons! A blurb from Kristin Cashore!! What more is needed!?
6) THREATS OF SKY AND SEA by Jennifer Ellison
I love following Jennifer on Twitter, and her debut novel sounds AWESOME.
Elemental magic! Traitors to the thrown! Kings! Armies! Assassins! Um....how can I NOT want this!?
7) SEALER'S PROMISE by Kathy Coleman
I love Kathy's blog, and when I heard she was writing a Beauty and the Beast story, I immediately wanted it. It has a great cover and its launch is finally almost here!
8) REBEL BELLE by Rachel Hawkins
Rachel Hawkins! Assassins!
Finally, the book I've been waiting for since it's publishing deal was announced in 2010 is real!!!
I received a copy at ALA that I'm eager to dig into!!!
My Review: HEX HALL, DEMONGLASS, SPELL BOUND
9) LOVE LETTERS TO THE DEAD by Ava Dellaira
It has been blurbed by contemporary heavyweight champions such as Stephen Chbosky, Laurie Halse Anderson, Jay Asher, Gayle Forman, and Lauren Myracle. How could I NOT be drooling over this one?
I'm only ashamed I haven't already devoured my ARC, since it's been begging to be read for so long now! *begs for a contemporary mood to strike*
10) SHE IS NOT INVISIBLE by Marcus Sedgwick
Another contemporary ARC begging for my love. I just need that mood to strike!
I've never read Sedgwick before, but I know he can write! In 2011, he was a Printz Honor Winner for REVOLVER, and he's this year's Printz Award Winner for MIDWINTERBLOOD.
I wanted to read SHE IS NOT INVISIBLE before I knew these things about him, though...heck, before he even won this year's coveted Printz!
For one thing, the main character is blind. I've always gravitated towards books where the character has the odds stacked against him/her due to a disability, and so I'm already hooked!
What books are you looking forward to reading this Spring? ^_^
