This weeks theme is: Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR
The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher – I can’t believe this one is still making my TBR-type posts because I’ve had it on my pile for the longest time. I’m in the mood for some Fantasy so I think this will have to be one of my first Spring reads.
The Ninth Rain by Jen Williams – As I mentioned before I’m in the mood for a good Fantasy novel and this one caught my eye a little while ago, so definitely adding it to my TBR.
Hold Back the Stars by Katie Khan – This story is about characters trying to survive in space with only 90 minutes of air remaining.
The Autumn Republic by Brian McClellan – This is the final book in the Powder Mage trilogy and I can’t wait to find out how it all ends. I’ve waited months for the library to get this one, so I was really pleased when I received the email saying it had arrived. Now to find out the fate of my favourite characters.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman – I recently finished Norse Mythology and decided I wanted to read more Gaiman so I’ll probably check this out over the coming months. I bet I’ll end up watching the new series of American Gods too.
The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O’Neill – The Bailey’s Prize longlist was released recently and I noticed this book had made the list. I’ve seen the book compared to The Night Circus but I’m never sure whether that’s a good thing because I loved that book so much that it always leaves me with high expectations.
Hidden Killers by Lynda La Plante – I don’t really read much crime, but I am enjoying Tennison, or Prime Suspect 1973 as it’s known now there’s a tv series (which I haven’t started watching yet), so I’ll give the next book a try too.
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth – I’ve only read one book by this author so I’m looking forward to giving this one a try.
Carnivalesque by Neil Jordan – The cover caught my eye in the first place, I loved the contrast of the colours. Then I read what the story was about, carnivals and a boy caught behind a magic mirror, and I had to pick this one up.
Fingersmith by Sarah Waters – I read this one a few years ago but for some reason it’s back in my mind and I’d like a re-read. Not sure whether I’ll get round to doing that because I already have such a massive TBR pile, but this book makes the list because the intent to read it is there 😀
Have you read any of the books that made my list? If so, what did you think?
What are you hoping to read over the next few months?
