Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR

Posted March 14, 2017 by What Katie Read in Memes, Top Ten Tuesday / 5 Comments

Spring 2017 will see a handful of anticipated books published, and so today I share with you some of the titles that are on the top of my TBR. I picked up a handful of them at ALA Midwinter, so that means I can jump into many of these right away. But…I also share a few backlist titles that I’m adding to the stack.

It’s as it has always been: So many books and so little time!

This weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and Bookish—check out their blog and join in any week you like.

Here’s what they have to say about Top Ten Tuesday: “Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly link-up in the community where we provide a prompt and other lovers of listmaking join in on it with their own top ten list. Feel free to have less than 10 or more if you need to at times and put a spin on the topic if you need to! Just please link back to us if you are participating :).”

STRANGE THE DREAMER

I was lucky enough to snag an ARC of this at ALA Midwinter and I’ve already started reading it. Suffice it to say that however high your hopes are about this one, you can elevate them higher.

A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN

I’ve been holding off reading A Court of Mist and Fury but you can bet I’ll have read it by the time this title is released. I’m anxious to know how Feyre’s journey is going to unfold.

THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD

We know this won the National Book Award, and everything I have heard about this book convinces me it will be a heartrending and emotional read, but it will be worth it.

THE WOMEN IN THE CASTLE

I’m really looking forward to another historical novel set just after World War II. I can’t get enough fiction set in this time period, especially if it is well-researched. The Goodreads description says this fits readers of The Nightingale, Sarah’s Key, and The Light Between Oceans. I loved all of those books!!

HOUR OF THE BEES

Another title I’ve wanted to read for awhile about “family, renewal, and discovering the wonder of the world.”

BEYOND THE BRIGHT SEA

I read an ARC of this and I give it all the stars. I can’t wait to hold a finished copy in my hands and I will work to convince every reader to pick this one up!

THE SHADOW CIPHER (YORK #1)

I read and loved Laura Ruby’s BONE GAP so if she’s written a Middle Grade novel, you bet I’m going to be excited about it.

THE PEARL THIEF

A prequel for CODE NAME VERITY! I have no words.

FLAMECASTER

I know Shadowcaster is due out this spring, but I still need to read Flamecaster, and that is quickly becoming a priority.

SONG OF THE CURRENT

This sounds thrilling and look at that luminous cover. I see that the early reviews are positive so I’m planning on reading this one ASAP.

This is an amazing list, I know! I’m curious to know if any of these titles are on your lists or if there are any books you think I absolutely must add to my Spring TBR. Do tell! Happy Reading!
