Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.
Hello everyone. Spring has sprung although if I’m honest, Winter felt a lot more like spring temperature wise over here. Anyway as you know by now I don’t typically set myself a tbr list because most of the time I will not stick to it. However, I own some of these books already and some of my most anticipated books of the year are set to come out in these next few months and I plan to devour them. 😉
1. Siren’s Song by Mary Weber: This book literally arrived at my door this morning and I can’t wait to get sucked back into this world. I’m so excited to see how everything works out for Nym and I pray that there aren’t too many casualties.
2. Riders by Veronica Rossi: Yet another book that arrived this morning. So far Veronica Rossi has done nothing but deliver with every book she’s released and I am so excited to meet these new characters.
3. The Raven King by Maggie Steifvater: Fun fact, this book comes out the day before my birthday so there is a chance I will not be very responsive on the actual day haha. You all know how excited/nervous I am for this book. Let’s all gather and create a protective bubble for our dear Gansey. He must be protected at all times.
4. Nora and Kettle by Lauren Nicolle Taylor: This has been on my tbr for a while. It’s a Peter Pan retelling and while I’m not the biggest fan of Peter Pan, I am intrigued by the premise of the book. It takes place in the 1950’s and looks at the post-war society. From the reviews I’ve already read about the book I’m told that it packs a few punches. I can’t wait.
5. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson: My go-to contemporary author. How can I not be excited about this book. Plus the little teasers we’re treated to every Tuesday is a delight. I am ready to be swept off my feet.
6. Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry: Razor caught my eye in Nowhere but Here and I was overjoyed when I found out that the second installment in the Thunder Road series will focus on his story. I can guarantee that the romance will be swoony and sexy but I do love getting to learn more about our character and their struggles.
7. Morning Star by Pierce Brown: You’re all probably wondering why I’ve yet to read this book. Well I’ll tell you. I have to be in the right mood to read something as intense as Morning Star. I absolutely adored the first two books in this series but it was emotionally draining. I will be reading the book in the next few months, I just need to stock up on my tissues first.
8. The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski: I’ve been meaning to read these books for a while but I decided to wait until the third book was released, or close to being released. So with the publication date for The Winner’s Kiss approaching this is the perfect time to start reading the books. I’m told to expect emotional trauma and heart stopping cliffhangers so I’ll get the wine out just in case. 😛
9. The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick: This was on my Autumn tbr list and I’m sad to report that I didn’t get round to reading it. I just wasn’t in the mood for contemporary back then. However, I am more than ready to get reacquainted with the Garrett’s, Sam and Tim so I will be ticking this one off the list in the coming weeks.
10. Outrun the Moon by Stacey Lee: Yet another one of my most anticipated books of the year. I love the cover for this book and the premise already has me wanting more. There are quite a few interesting historic YA titles being released this year and this is definitely one to watch.
I forgot to add these to the list so I thought I’d extend the topic from top ten to top twelve. I recently purchased these books and because I’ve heard a lot of great things about both titles I simply have to see what all the fuss is about.
11. Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin: You can all thank Jenna @ Reading With Jenna for this addition. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this book and as always I simply have to see what all the fuss is about. The cover is badass and I love exploring the “what if’s” of history and a world where Hitler emerged victorious is a terrifying though but one I’d quite like to read about haha.
12. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys: I can see this book ripping my heart to tiny little shreds. The tragic story of the Wilhelm Gustloff is something that’s overlooked quite a bit when it comes to the history of World War II and I can’t wait find out more about this event.
Those are my Spring priority reads. Which books made it to your list?
