Springing into My Spring TBR

10 Books on my Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.

This week’s prompt is Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR. And boy do I have a LOT. It was hard to narrow it down but I managed. Why the need for a smaller list you ask? Well, for starters, if I was going to list my whole spring TBR, we’d be here forever and even I don’t want that.

To be Published

First up, the books that have yet to hit shelves (unless you’re lucky enough to have an ARC).

Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves

This is actually a “EMILY, you must READ this book or else!” book. Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself. That’s what happens when I surprisingly get approved to read books early on NetGalley.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

I have to, have to, have to read When Dimple Met Rishi comes out. Not only have I heard so many good things about it already, it has two characters of color. TWO! I guess miracles do happen sometimes.

I’m So Behind – Already Published

Yeah, I am super behind when it comes to reading. I can barely juggle studying and socializing, plus fitness, let alone reading and blogging. But I’m trying. Maybe not my best though. 🙁

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

People have been raving about Caraval all over #bookstagram so I just have to check it out for myself. As soon as my library gets it, that is. *Sigh*.

Off the Ice by Julie Cross

I love Julie Cross and I love skating. Okay, fine, I love figure skating, but hockey is in the same family. Sort of. Ish. As for why I’m planning to read a winterish book in Spring, well, it’s March and we’re supposed to get a lot of snow today. If the weather can mix up the seasons, it’s only right if I do too.

Chasing Truth by Julie Cross

Another Julie Cross because not only do I love her writing, I also love me a good thriller/spy novel. Can’t get enough of those. So if you have any recs… 😉

The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

It was just published recently and I own it so I figured, might as well.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

I’ve owned this book since last October and still haven’t read it. In my defense, I spent most of my time at college and it spent all of its time in my room at home. We’re just going to ignore the fact that I live close to school and had a relatively long winter break, okay?

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz

What better time to read a book about immigration than now. Especially now that our pres… no, I can’t even think about it.

Book Meet Screen

There are so many adaptations happening I’m loosing track of them all. But there are a few that I know for fact are in the works or ready for audiences. That only means one thing – I gotta catch up on my reading.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

When I first read Thirteen Reasons Why, I was about 13 years old, give or take. It’s been a while. And I’ve read so many books since. Which is why I think I’m due for a reread.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

This one I’m a little less sure about. I know people who love, love, love it as well as people who aren’t biggest fans. So in conclusion, I have absolutely no idea to expect. Although going by the movie trailer, a POC character, which is usually something I cheer about.

That’s all of my picks!
What’s on your spring TBR?
Oh, and happy Pi Day!

  1. The wait for When Dimple Met Rishi is killing me. The longer I wait the higher my expectations become. I might be in store for disappointment! Or the best book ever, which is what I am hoping for. I have to admit that I am on the verge of DNFing Caraval at the moment. But I have seen a ton of people really liking it so the problem might be me.

  2. I am having trouble keeping up with all the integral pieces of life, too. So much to do, so little time. I haven’t really read in days!

    Great list! I am also into thrillers so I will definitely be checking out Chasing Truth! I doooo happen to have a recommendation for you (since you asked! haha). I recently finished a fantastic book called “The Persian Woman” by Thomas Booker. This book somehow manages to mix the action/suspense/thriller genre with romance in an interesting and unique way. The book follows the unlikely relationship between Jeffrey Quinn (ex Navy seal) and FBI Agent Parvin Sassani. Jeffrey’s wife was killed by a Jihardist and this has resulted in him being wary of all Muslims. This all changes when he has to work with Iranian FBI agent Parvin Sassani on a possible terrorist threat. He is forced to learn about her ethics, culture, and belief system and in turn he falls for her. The characters are extremely likable and the story is riveting from start to finish. You can read more about it on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Persian-Woman-Thomas-Booker-ebook/dp/B014TQ1B7Q/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1492526103&sr=1-1
    Let me know what you think! Happy Reading!
