Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR!

3.17.2015
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

My Spring TBR pile might look a little different than yours; I've got a lot of catching up to do for those books I never got around to because I thought they didn't sound interesting enough! Also, apologies for the awkward formatting of this post. Apparently I've forgotten how to do anything ever. 


1) Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass
Obviously a party I'm super late to, but I just bought this yesterday and can't wait to get started. I've heard such great things and the first three pages were enough to get me hooked. (Of course, once I'm hooked, there goes my money on the rest of the series. Whoops.)




 2) The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

The Orphan Queen? More like MY QUEEN. I've loved Jodi Meadows since the start. (I was so embarrassing back then. Not that anything's changed.) No way can I turn down a book this gorgeous. Also, spies. Also, magic. I also just bought this one yesterday! B&N owns my soul.



 3) A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Mass
Apparently I don't need to have read Sarah J. Mass's books to be interested in everything ever. I cannot begin to explain how excited I am for this. The cover is gorgeous, the synopsis is everything I want in a book, and I'm actually not sure how I'm going to make it to May. (Probably more like July, because, you know, life and finals.)



4) Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

Late to the party. Again. But DRAGONS. What could be better? I'm really into high fantasy lately, and again, I've heard so many good things about this. I haven't gotten it yet, but I should buy it soon enough. This sounds so incredible.




5) Thornhill by Kathleen Peacock

I have to reread Hemlock before I can get to Thornhill, but there's no way I can forget about this series. And honestly, I think I'll like it even more the second time. Thornhill is definitely something I can't wait to get to this Spring!





6) Deception by CJ Redwine

Another oldie. Also another sequel and yet another book I want
to reread. I remember loving Logan and Rachel but there's no way I remember enough details to get to Deception yet. Still, I can't wait to finally read it! This is long overdue.



7) The Cage by Megan Shepherd
I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but I am so in love with the idea of a human zoo and what it could potentially mean for the psyche of those on display. I can't wait to read this one! Although May 26th doesn't really count as a Spring read for me anymore.





8) Rook by Sharon Cameron

A mysterious crusader leaving feathers in his wake as he rescues prisoners - or does he? Either way, yes please. April 28th can come anytime now.






9) The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski
After seeing all the glowing reviews for the second book, how could I not want to get to this one as fast as possible? I'll admit that I've picked it up a few times in the past year and just never bought it, but NO MORE OF THAT.

What do you think the 10th book on my Top Ten Spring TBR pile should be? Fire & Flood? All Fall Down? The Nightmare Affair? Something else? I appear to be particularly lacking in contemporary. Let me know in the comments, and let me know about your top ten!

  1. I started Seraphina last year and put it down for another book, but I really want to continue at some point. And I also have Rook on my TBR as well, it looks really good! Great picks!

    Here are my picks: Erica @ Read It. Note It.

  4. Fantastic list :)

    If you're looking for something a bit different but all kinds of awesome, give Say Her Name by James Dawson a go. Stuninng.

    And a little bit scary.

  5. I read an ARC of THE CAGE. It kept me totally enthralled. Interesting premise, interesting execution. I'll be interested to see what others think of it.

    Happy TTT (and St. Paddy's)!

  6. I've recently heard good things about The Winner's Curse. Probably because of the release of the sequel. I've read Throne of Glass and thought it was okay. I've heard it gets better with every book though.

  7. The Winner's Curse! I desperately want to read that book, but I'm also tempted to wait until the entire series is released so I can binge-read. It's a difficult decision.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT, and by the way, your blog is gorgeous!

  8. I'm actually more excited for 'A Court of Thorns and Roses" than "Queen of Shadows" (I read books 1-3 in December).

    And I personally think all Spring/Summer reading list should include some contemporary lightish reading so I would suggest "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell. But I'm extremely biased where Rainbow is concerned.

  9. Yes yes yes to The Winner's Curse! I finished it yesterday and still have major book hangover! I didn't LOVE Throne of Glass, but I started the second one in the series today and it definitely gets better as it goes on!

  10. Such a great list with some truly awesome books on! Sarah J Maas is fab, can't wait to hear what you think of her books! Seraphina and The Winner's Curse are incredible - highly recommend The Winner's Crime as well. It's another series that just gets better and better. If you haven't discovered the Scarlet series by A. C. Gaughen, I really recommend that for you TBR pile, the first book is called Scarlet and it's a retelling of Robin Hood and is fab!

  11. Ahhhh, so many good ones. I mostly liked Seraphina, though I have yet to read Shadow Scale (and probably won't). I LOVED The Winner's Curse, Deception (and Deliverance), Thornhill (and Willowgrove), The Orphan Queen, Throne of Glass (though, not so much Crown of Midnight, but then Heir of Fire was excellent and made up for that). I have Rook, The Cage, and ACOTAR on deck. Looks like we have very similar tastes! :D

    Happy reading!

  13. The first book in Throne of Glass is alright, but I've heard the series gets much better as it progresses:) A Court of Thorns & Roses is on my TBR as well. Great list<3 Benish | Feminist Reflections

  14. I just started Throne of Glass last week and I'm on Heir of Fire already. They are addicting. I had seen the books for a while now but I wasn't sure I was going to be into them but when I got an arc of ACoTaR and fell in love, I knew I'd enjoy her other series. They are amazing books and you will be hooked. As for The Cage... I cannot wait until that comes out. I'm really hoping it's good because the whole human zoo thing is really interesting. I'm surprised no one else has done it... or at least not that I know of.
