Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring TBR


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!  This first week's topic back from hiatus is Books On My Spring TBR.  In order to narrow my focus a little bit, I'm sharing some 2016 YA releases that I hope to read this spring since I missed them last year.  The titles I've listed below are all books that I either own or that I'm on hold for at the library.  Here we go, in alphabetical order by title:


The Diablolic by S.J. Kincaid - I'm really excited to get to this one, especially since I've heard so many great things about it and the sampler I got to try was very intriguing.


Half Lost by Sally Green - This series has been one of my favorites and I need to know how it all ends.  I'll be listening to this on audio, and hopefully my hold will be arriving soon.


Heartless by Marissa Meyer - I still can't believe I haven't read Marissa Meyer's newest  novel!  Soon, soon.


Iron Cast by Destiny Soria - I purchased this when it was released, and somehow I've left it on my shelf.  I will have to remedy that soon.


The Midnight Star by Marie Lu - I've been on hold for this on audiobook for ages and I'm finally getting closer to having the opportunity to hear the conclusion to what has been a fantastically dark series.


Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco - I've heard so many wonderful things about this novel that I need to try it sooner rather than later.


Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare - I can't resist the Shadowhunter world, and plus it will help fill in some gaps between the end of The Mortal Instruments series and Lady Midnight.


This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab - I simply need more Schwab in my life!


Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake - I'm also on hold for the audiobook here and have been on hold for it for many months, so I hoping it will arrive soon.  I'll be interested to see what Blake does.


A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir - I still can't believe I haven't read this sequel yet based on how much I loved An Ember in the Ashes.  Must be the nerves - I'm hoping it lives up to the hype!

Are you planning on reading any of these books this spring, or have you already read them?  Do you have any recommendations for which I should try first?  As always, thanks for visiting and perhaps even commenting on my blog.

  3. I need to read Half Wild and Heartless! I probably won't get to them anytime soon though. I liked Iron Cast a lot. I hope you enjoy all of these!

  4. It's hard to keep up, isn't it? Most of my books are books I added last year.

    My list this week is up for comment. I can't decide what to read next: http://readerbuzz.blogspot.com/2017/03/my-spring-tbr.html

  6. I really need to finish Sally Green's series too! I can't believe I still haven't got round to it.

    I think all of your books are on my long TBR. I hope you have more success with getting round to them than I have!

    Happy Reading

  8. Great list! I read Three Dark Crowns last month and found it to be a great start to the series. There is a surprise ending to leave you hanging :) Heartless is another one on my desk that I should get to soon. I hope you enjoy all of your spring reads!

  13. *flails* I want to This Savage Song so much! I see it everywhere and get book envy all the time. XD But in a good way. And I've wanted to read Heartless also. I've heard mixed reviews of it, so now I'm really curious. And everyone tells me I need to read Sally Green.

    Awesome list!

  14. Gosh, I didn't enjoy Iron Cast much, but many do. There was just something about the unrealistic twists that bothered me. Great TTT!

  15. I totally missed Heartless and stalking Jack the Ripper as well. I find serial killers extremely intriguing, and I love the premise that was given for this one! Also, it's fiction. Like um YES COUNT ME IN

  16. I really liked Three Dark Crowns, and cannot wait for the sequel. I have The Diabolic and This Savage Song, but I keep bumping them every time I get a new book (I will read them soon. I swear!). I have been waiting for Heartless from the library for over 3 months, but I have heard really good things. Great list.

  18. A lot of my TBR is here, lol. I really enjoyed Stalking Jack the Ripper and the sequel looks like it's going to be good too.

  19. Torch, Three Dark Crowns and The Diabolic weren't on my list but they are on my TBR for the year. My main focus in spring is finishing series I've started so I'm trying to be patient and hold off on those ones. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on them!

  20. I read Heartless and Stalking Jack and both were really really good. Highly recommend. I was nervous about Heartless because I didn't know what Marissa Meyer would be like outside of The Lunar Chronicles world-- but she is still the same really addicting writer!!

    I have SO many 2016 books I need to read-- I wish I was one of those people that could read 150-200 books per year. Then maybe I wouldn't be so behind :(

  21. Great list. I've heard of about half of them. I want to read Heartless, but need to finish The Lunar Chronicles first. Three Dark Crowns is on my list to read this year.

  28. I spy many on your list that piqued my interest when they released. These include The Diabolic (the hype for this one was strong); 'Jack Ripper' (sounds interesting!); and I've also eyed Sally's series for a while now. Alas, I haven't read them. Another series to add to my someday TBR. ;)

    Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland, Lauren.

  42. I haven't heard of any of these minus Half Lost, from one of my favourite series ever! I know you have good taste because of that alone lol. I absolutely adore Sally Green, and the first in the series (Half Bad right?) was so good that when I think back on it I remember scenes I kind of imagined in my mind whilst reading it, the writing was so good and vivid and everything. Have you read East of the Sun before? I read it recently thinking it would be a bit crap but ohmygod I adored everything in it! You might like it too?

    1. Clearly great minds think alike! :)

      I just happened to win a copy of Half Bad and I was so impressed with it.

      I haven't tried East of the Sun, but I think I'll have to look into it.

      Thanks for visiting, Amy!
