Top Ten Tuesday is hosted and created by the lovely people over at The Broke and the Bookish and features a different topic each week for which you’re supposed to create a list of ten books (or things)! This week’s topic is Books I want To Read This Spring, so let’s get this list going!
A Conjuring Of Light
I have slowly been reading my way through the Shades Of Magic trilogy by VE Schwab since February and I cannot wait to finally complete the trilogy and see how everything wraps up in A Conjuring Of Light – though I have to say I am worried for all of these characters! I’ve reviewed both A Darker Shade Of Magic and A Gathering Of Shadows on the blog before, click here and here to read them!
A Court Of Wings And Ruin
I am a big fan of Sarah J. Maas’ A Court Of Thorns And Roses trilogy (especially ACOMAF at this point in time) and I am so ready to finally get my hands on the next (and last, I think) installment in this trilogy: A Court Of Wings And Ruin! The ending of A Court Of Mist And Fury was infuriating and awesome at the same time! I am counting down the days and hoping that my pre-order arrives in time (does anyone have experience with pre-orders from bookdepositry?)!
Born A Crime
In the months leading up to the US election last year, I came across videos of Trevor Noah hosting The Daily Show and I have really grown to like what he has to say and how he says it and I have learned bits and pieces about him and where he’s from. So when I learned that he had published Born A Crime and watched interviews about it, I was hooked! I can’t wait to read this and find out more about his childhood living in a country where his existence was considered a crime because of his heritage. It sounds really fascinating!
Lord Of Shadows
I think this comes as no surprise to most of you who have been reading our blog, seeing how I am quite the Shadowhunters Universe fan! Before I read Lord Of Shadows I will probably also re-read Lady Midnight because I like having the events of previous books fresh in my mind when I move on to the next book in a series and I feel like I have already forgotten most of what happened! I can’t wait to be reunited with the Carstairs and Blackthorns and see how the story unfolds further – especially with what happened at the very end of Lady Midnight!
Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy / The Bane Chronicles
Continuing with the whole Shadowhunters Universe talk, I also really want to finally read Tales Froom The Shadowhunters Academy and The Bane Chronicles. I just can’t quite decide which one I want to read first. Especially since I haven’t finished my re-read of The Mortal Instruments yet and I am kind of holding off until I do that so I am familiar with all of the characters and events before I dive into the novellas for the first time! There is going to be so much from this universe in my reading this year and I am loving even just the thought of it!
The Bear And The Nightingale
The Bear And The Nightingale hits all of my marks for a book that sounds intriguing to me! It’s set in Russia and is a retelling of Russian folklore! I have seen this book around bookstagram and on a couple of blogs recently and I am just so curious to see if I will enjoy this book! I haven’t read anything set in Russia or influenced by Russian culture in ages! It’s about time, I think.
The Hate U Give
I have been thinking and talking about The Hate U Give since I created my February releases post back at the end of January and now it’s the middle of March already and I still haven’t gotten my copy of this book! I just want to get my hands on this book and start reading it. Is it really that difficult to just deliver it to me already?
The Night Circus
Back when Caraval was first released so, so many people compared it to The Night Circus and since I did really enjoy Caraval (I talk more about it in my review) I definitely want to read The Night Circus too! I have since heard people who absolutely love The Night Circus and have read Caraval say that The Night Circus is better, so I am excited! I haven’t read many books (or any apart from Caraval) set in a circus so I can’t wait to expand my list of books featuring this element!
This Savage Song
After having only read two books by VE Schwab (or Victoria Schwab) I am already 100% convinced that I want to read the rest of her published work too! And This Savage Song sounds so interesting and the concept of criminal acts manifesting themselves in monsters? How awesome does that sound?! Also, there is apparently no romance!
Wires And Nerve
Lastly, we have Marissa Meyer’s newest release and what would be a new form of media for me when it comes to reading: graphic novel Wires and Nerve! I really adored the character of Iko in The Lunar Chronicles and I cannot wait to see her go on adventures of her own but also be reunited with everyone from The Lunar Chronicles! This is hopefully going to be a fun read!
There you have it! A list of ten books that I hope to read this spring! Have you read any of them? If so, which ones should be priority reads? Let me know in the comments and let’s discuss the awesomeness of the books you have read!
