Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme brought to you by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish (the pic also belongs to them). This week’s theme is Top Ten Books On My Spring To-Be-Read list (new releases or otherwise).
My TBR list is out of control, but here are a few that I am hoping to get to sooner rather than later!
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – I love John Green and have heard only good things about this book. I’ve been on my library’s hold list for almost two months. It is a testament to my ability to be easily distracted by other books that I haven’t gone out and purchased this yet.
On the Island by Tracy Garvis Graves – A survival/romance story that I have also heard nothing but good things about. The blog review I read was so positive that I bought this the next day and that almost never happens… I am really eager to get through my library holds so I can start this one!
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – I browsed this one at a book store and knew I had to read it after seeing some of the photographs. I spent much time in grad school talking about and perusing old photographs, so this is up my alley in that respect. I’ve been on the hold list at the library for at least 6 weeks and suspect this one won’t come my way for at least another month or two. So it may end up being summer reading!
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle – This is April’s BHA pick, so I will be reading along with some others online. I read this book as a kid and remember loving it, but it has been so long I couldn’t tell you the first thing about it. Very excited to revisit an old favorite!
Birthmarked by Caragh O’Brien – I have been trying to read all the dystopia I can this year because I love it and because I like to think big thoughts about it. This one has a midwife as a main character and that is cool.
World War Z by Max Brooks – After my disappointing first encounter with a zombie book, I am looking to find one that will actually be as awesome as I think a zombie book should be. And this book’s subtitle says “oral history” which make me think this would be a fun audiobook. Also, my reading twin recommended it.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – This is another that I have only heard good things about. I admittedly roll my eyes at a romance set in Paris, but I also want to know what all the fuss is about. So I will read it. And hopefully not roll my eyes too much.
Paper Towns by John Green – I am working my way through all of the John Green this spring. This is the other (besides TFIOS) which I haven’t read yet.
1984 by George Orwell – A classic dystopia. I really am trying to read all the dystopia I can. I find it fascinating!
Unwind by Neal Shusterman – All the dystopia. This one made a bunch of top ten dystopia lists from last week, so I am going to add this one to the pile, too!
What are you hoping to read this spring?
