Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Technically it’s Springtime, but it definitely still feels like Winter over here. We’ve had another heap of snow over the weekend, and while I typically love the snow, I want my seasons in order and am praying that Spring shows its face soon. I’m still in this slump, and I can’t see it indefinitely breaking anytime soon, but I hope it does cause I want to get back to reading again. So, while the likelihood of me reading half of the books on this list isn’t great I’m hoping I can find the motivation to try.

1. Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry:  I’m hoping this will be my next read. There’s an addictive quality to McGarry’s books and they’re usually good ones to turn to when you’re in the middle of a slump. I’m really excited to read this book so, hopefully, I can start it this week.

2. Invictus by Ryan Graudin: Invictus was one of my most anticipated books of 2017 and I still haven’t read it yet. The concept of this book sounds epic, and I love the mash-up of the time traveling elements with the historical settings.

3. Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley: This book was a spur of the moment purchase for me. I’ve heard amazing things about it and it is a book I can see myself loving. This is one of those books where I have no idea what to expect but am excited to find out.

4. Girl Out of Water by Laura Silverman: Springtime usually kick starts my contemporary binge reading session, and a good coming of age story is just what I need. I can really see myself relating to this book in a lot of different ways. 

5. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: Everyone knows I have a love for Laini Taylor’s writing. It’s magical and evocative. Admittedly, my attention span is limited after a long day and I think this book requires a lot of concentration.

6. Obsidio by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff: I NEED THIS BOOK. I adored the first two books in this series, and I am excited but nervous to see how everything concludes. I just hope all my guys come out of it alive.

7. Bountiful by Sarina Bowen: I’ve been meaning to read this book for a while now and I really don’t know why I haven’t done so yet. It’s a crossover of the Brooklyn Bruisers and True North series and I already know that I’m going to love the dynamics in this book.

8. Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett: Another book that has been sitting on my TBR for eons. I’m hoping to read it either in the spring or summer when my contemporary binge reading self is in full gear.

9. Until It Fades by K. A. Tucker: I’m a sucker for Ice Hockey romances. Everyone knows this, and while I’m not familiar with K. A. Tucker’s books, I can see this one being a hit.

10. Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh: I’m really intrigued by this book. I love the concept and Ahdieh’s previous books have impressed me so far. I just hope that the hype doesn’t elevate my expectations. 

Those are the books on my Spring to-read list.
Which books are on your tbr list for this season?

    1. I cannot wait to get my hands on Obsidio, but I feel like I’ll need to emotionally prepare myself for the onslaught of feels I’ll get from the book.


  2. I am reading Obsidio as well! So excited to see how this series will end! I do feel a bit nervous as well, because there is always so much expectation when it comes to the last book in the series, and I hope that the ending will be satisfying! Happy reading 🙂

      1. Yes it is absolutely a rollercoaster ride haha 🙂 I just finished the book yesterday. It was amazing and I was on the edge of my seat throughout to the end. Hope that you will enjoy the rest of the book!

  3. I read both Strange the Dreamer and Flame in the Mist last year and really enjoyed them. Flame in the Mist was a decent book, but didn’t exactly knock my socks off. I will be continuing on in the series. Strange the Dreamer was one of my favorite reads last year! It wasn’t perfect, but very very close. If you’ve enjoyed her other books, I can’t imagine you not loving Strange the Dreamer too.

    1. I’m going to go into Flame in the Mist with lower expectations. I love Ahdieh’s Wrath and the Dawn duology, but I’m trying to tone down my expectations for this book. Strange the Dreamer sounds like everything I love in a book, but I feel like it’s one I have to be in the right mood for.


  4. I have heard such geat things about Alex, Approximately and I wanna read it too soon-ish. I hope you enjoy it as much as everyone else has been
    Very curious about Flame in the Mist and I trully hope Obsidio is a great read for you and you’re satisfied with the ending (endings are normally bittersweet).
    Great list, hope you have a great time with those books!
