Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers. This week the theme is Top Ten Books On My Spring 2014 TBR List.
Before going into my list this week, I thought it might be good to have a look through some of my previous seasonal TBR Top Ten Tuesdays. A quick recap:
Spring 2013: 9 out of 10
[1/2 new releases]
[4/4 for review]
Autumn 2013: 3 out of 10
[1/3 review books]
Winter 2013: 5 out of 10
[0/3 books I own]
So er…I’m getting worse! Now, in all likelihood, this is probably just because my TBR list is increasing exponentially, but I’m going to try and give myself the best shot by picking several sequels & review copies, because those seem to be the categories I’ve actually been reading!
I really enjoyed Graceling, and although it took me a while to get into Fire, I’m very keen to get started on Bitterblue. I’ll probably start this in the next week or so.
2. The Angel
Sometimes, a guilty pleasure is just what you need! I loved Nora as a character, and I’m hoping to finally get back and read more of her this season.
Beautiful Creatures was a quick and easy read, and although not wowed by it, I did really enjoy it, and I’d like to continue the series.
The Review Copies
I’m so excited about this one. The cover is gorgeous, and I’m craving some great fantasy.
6. Echo Boy
I loved Matt Haig’s The Humans last year, and the plot sounds great. High hopes for this one.
I’m only an occasional historical fiction fan, but the niece of Hitler is far too interesting a concept to pass up.
Mila 2.0 was an enjoyable dystopian, with a believable, complex main character, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the story goes next.
From my shelves
Both The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Ocean at the End of the Lane where gifts from Matt, books I’d been eying up but resisting. I’d like to read both sometime this season, because I keep putting them off in favour of things I ‘should’ be reading instead. Hopefully no more!
