Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring TBR


Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the first Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Books On My Spring TBR.  This week I'm sharing ARCs and challenge books I plan on reading in April and May.  Here we go:


Children of Daedala by Caighlan Smith - I'll be reading this ARC very soon - and it sound like this dystopian has potential with a labyrinth as a major feature.


Bookish Boyfriends by Tiffany Schmidt - I'll also be reading this ARC this Spring as well - it's sounds like it'll be pretty cute with a girl who's classic literary crushes come to life.


The Oddling Prince by Nancy Springer - This ARC I've been approved for is a fantasy set in ancient Scotland, how cool is that!


A Graveyard Visible by Steve Conoboy - I can't wait to try this ARC of this YA horror novel.  Doesn't that cover look great?


The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America by Erik Larson - I'll be reading this in April for Book Riot's Reader Harder Challenge - it'll fulfill the true crime task.


1984 by George Orwell - I'm also reading this for the Read Harder Challenge in April - it'll fulfill the classic genre fiction task.


Tsarina by J. Nelle Patrick - This is going to be one of my Reader Harder Challenge books for May - it'll fulfill the task for a book set in a BRICS country (Russia).


The Garden of the Gods (Corfu Trilogy #3) by Gerald Durrell - This is also going to be May Read Harder Challenge books - it'll fulfill the task to read a book about nature.


The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike #2) by Robert Galbraith - I plan catching up on the Cormoran Strike series for #BeatTheBacklist.


Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike #3) by Robert Galbraith - I've heard a lot of fantastic things about the second two books in the series, and I can't wait to get all caught up on it.

Have you read any of these books yet?  What are you planning on reading this spring?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  6. 1984 is one of my favourite books. I read it in high-school, and I couldn`t stop thinking about it for weeks after I finished it. Hope you`ll enjoy it!

  16. I read 1984 in college. I thought it was kind of boring, but that’s probably because I was forced to read it. I need to read the Robert Galbraith books. Everybody seems to love them. I hope you enjoy all these books!

  17. Bookish Boyfriends sounds so cute! Devil in the White City was really good. I loved all the information it gave into the history of the Chicago World's Fair. I also enjoy the Cormoran Strike series. I hope you get to all these books! Here's my TTT this week.

  19. I will be reading Bookish Boyfriends. I mean seriously, this book is so targeted toward me. I read 1984 just about in the year 1984. XD I remember it fondly though. Hope you get to read them all.

  25. So many interesting titles! You'll enjoy 1984 I'm sure. That's a great book, although a terrifying one too. The novel that's set in ancient Scotland sounds like something I'd devour :) Happy reading!

  26. 1984 is the only book I've heard of - I swear every time I come back to your blog I realise just how out of touch with the book community I've become since university. I can't really say much on these books except 1984 is definitely a book you want to focus on, as in, spend proper time to sit down and digest it rather than read 20 pages, do something, read another 20 pages, do something else, you know?

  27. Brilliant choices. Daedala sounds great to me. I want it. Just look at that cover, too!

  28. I'm definitely interested in A Graveyard Visible, but I've been burnt by YA horror so many times in the past that I'm trying not to let my expectations get too high.
    I've also added Bookish Boyfriends to my TBR - thanks for featuring it, because it sounds amazing!
    Here's my spring TBR.

  31. Oh my goodness you have so many comments on this post! I'm guessing a lot of people liked your picks. :) Out of all the books, tsarina caught my attention the most. I think solely from the cover, but the title is interesting as well! I didn't love Bookish Boyfriends, but I did think it was cute. I hope you love it Lauren. :)
