Top Ten Tuesday – Ten Books on my Spring TBR

toptentuesday

A Spring TBR? I need this. Splitting books up per month is far too stressful, and at least I can adapt the term “spring” as a looser time-scale (yay for excuses). Top Ten Tuesday (-as I’m sure you’re aware!-) is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and I like to dip in and participate on an almost monthly-basis when a theme really captures my eye. This week, I’m really beginning to feel the vibes of Spring, and decided to join the community in looking forward to what I just NEED to read within the coming months.

We Were Liars – E. LOCKHART // Sekret – LINDSAY SMITH // Follow Me – NICCI CLOKE

Now, these are kind of cheats as they are part of my March TBR BUT with April ever-looming, and a stack of work threatening to physically take over my being, it’s looking unlikely that I will be able to finish all three (there are three others that I should be able to read).

Feed – MIRA GRANT // Sick – TOM LEEVEN

Inspired by this amazing post over at bookstacksamber (funnily enough, for a TTT a couple of weeks back!), and my ever-present LOVE of The Walking Dead, I am really in the mood to devour some Zombie-related plot lines (pun wholly intended.)

If I Should Die – AMY PLUM

I’M SO CLOSE TO FINISHING UNTIL I DIE AND IT’S JUST SO GOOD. Kirstie (@ Upside-Down Books) and I have been frantically devouring the second book of Plum’s in the Revenant trilogy and I am planning on uploading a review very soon (I’ll link her’s too!). I JUST NEED TO FINISH THIS SERIES – I WANT TO SEE HOW IT ENDS SO BADLY.

Dream A Little Dream – KERSTIN GIER

The reviews of this book are generally very positive, and after I finish the Revenants trilogy, I feel like I’ll need some sort of substantial series to engage with next! Can anyone recommend/dissuade me from reading this below?

The Detour – S. A. BODEEN

The plot of this book is just so capturing – a kidnapped middle-aged woman locked in a room? An untwisting plot with buckets of dramatic irony? A relatively short read at only 224 pages long? YES PLEASE *consumes*.

Reawakened – COLLEEN HOUCK

Recommended by Kirstie (literally, the number of great books you recommend me is actually giving me a headache. STOP MAKING ME DO ENERGY THINGS), this book actually looks incredible. Spring, here I come!

Replica – LAUREN OLIVER

Yes, yes, I know that this is due to be released in October, and last time you checked, that doesn’t constitute spring. I’M SORRY. I’m breaking the rules to showcase Lauren Oliver’s beauty of a new book that I will certainly consume when it is released. For now though, I can only assume that this book is going to be amazing – two parallel, interconnected stories in such a way that how you read them dictates their impact?! I’m in.

Your Turn

That just about wraps up today’s post – I hope you enjoyed this eclectic look into a select few books that I will be aiming to read this spring (or October … heh). Leave links to your assorted TTTs below, and I’ll be sure to check them all out. What are you looking forward to reading this spring??

(ps. I made some numbers – you likeeeeeee? or no?)

  1. We Were Liars is definitely a great one to pick up – It was really interesting and rather unpredictable.

    I haven’t read any of the others on your list but I have seen Dream A Little Dream on goodreads before and I am intrigued into seeing what this one is like so if you get round to picking it up, I am looking forward to seeing your thoughts on it. You may persuade me to finally give it a go!

  2. I’ve not read a lot about “Dream a Little Dream” but it looks really interesting. Plus, Kerstin’s earlier series gets good reviews. I did see Lauren’s cover reveal earlier this month, but hadn’t read much about it. I’ll have to read up on it. 🙂

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  3. *victory boogying* I’m so pleased to see Reawakened on this list!! I can’t wait for you to read it – I’m very curious to see whether you like it or not (you better, no pressure). ALSO. I’m re-flailing over If I Should Die now because my body is not prepared for the wonders that are sure to be held within those pages. And you must tell me what Dream A Little Dream is like because I’ve had that on my to-buy list forever (I don’t remember what it’s about, I just really, really like the cover #ShallowKirstieIsShallow) so YES, hurry up and read it so you can report back to me 😛

    (BTW: totally sitting here admiring your little typography art thingies going on. Stahp being so fabulous).

    PS: You need to read Halo by Alexandra Adornetto. It. is. ADDICTIVE.

    1. 🙂 🙂 🙂
      Literally after the Die For Me recommendation, you literally could suggest anything, and I would be happy to oblige and give it a read. Reawakened will probably be read sometime in April (here’s hoping!) and I may or may not HAVE TO START IF I SHOULD DIE ASAP.

      I will 100% pass on any thoughts or feelings about Dream A Little Dream as and when I get round to reading it – I’ll tweet ya’ 🙂 (I do the same too, #relatable)

      Thankyou so much for stopping by and engaging with it all, as per 🙂

      PS. OMG new recommendation alert *flails* *immediately adds to top of TBR*

      1. Haha eventually you’re going to hit a book that you HATE and question your life choices – but let’s hope not. And yayyay I look forward to it.

        You’re welcome 🙂

    1. Yessss Replica is going to be amazing! (At least, I hope it will be! :P) Let me know when you get round to reading Sick: I’m really interested to hear your thoughts!

    1. I love a twisty book – but not an overly twisty one, let’s be sure! Don’t they look so good?! I don’t know why I’m starting to delve into the realms of more sadistic/mystery-type literature, but I’m really enjoying the jump.

      I already checked in on you blog because I’m a fantastic little human (I lie) *pats self on back*. Whenever you post, you are the first port of call! 😛

  4. Ooh, I havne’t read any of these yet, but I’ve been really interested in Feed, and eventually I may see if I can get it at my library. I really like zombie fiction, so I’ve been compiling a list of titles that I want to check into. Also, Lauren Oliver’s book looks really intriguing and I’m dying with anticipation.

    Great list!
