Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday | Spring 2020 TBR

Hey friends,

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you’re having an amazing day!

I was so happy to see this was the prompt for this week. I’ve been organizing my unread books and looking at some spring releases, and I’m super excited to discuss these books with you all.


For those of you not familiar with Top Ten Tuesday, it was a meme created by the lovely bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish but was moved to That Artsy Ready GirlΒ in 2018. Be sure to check out Jana’s blog for prompts for the rest of the year!

This week for Top Ten Tuesday the topic was Books on your Spring TBR!

*These books are in no particular order.

The List:

10. Elantris by Brandon Sanderson – I’ve read the first era of Mistborn earlier this year and I’m so excited to continue with the other Cosmere books, probably for the rest of 2020.

9. The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson – Similar to the previous pick, I’m so excited to continue on to second era Mistborn after loving first-era so much.

8. The Black Prism by Brent Weeks – After loving Mistborn so much, I’m so excited to dive into more adult fantasy and I’ve heard so many amazing things about the Black Prism series. The magic system in this book sounds so interesting and like the perfect pick me up after Maas and Sanderson.

7. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – If you’ve been following me on my other social media, you’ll know I’m head over heel in love with House of Earth and Blood. Despite planning to reread this one a few more times by the end of the year, I’m also hoping to read more of Sarah’s backlist. Throne of Glass has me excited because it’s a completed series so I’ll be able to see how her long-form series concluded, as I don’t think I can count ACOWAR as a good indication of conclusions since there’s a spin-off series coming.

6. A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas – Like Throne of Glass, reading ACOFAS will complete the currently published ACOTAR series and hold me over until we get the HOEAB book 2 pub date.

5. The Lovely War by Julie Berry – Okay, so once again Heather and Riley raved about a book and my weak ass went out and got it. But common, how can you tell me there’s a trial about love, narrated by Aphrodite and oversaw by the Greek gods and NOT expect me to buy them.

4. Aurora Burning by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – Okay, so y’all know I’m trash for this author duo and I actually really enjoyed Aurora Rising. I’m so excited to see where this series is going to go, especially since we’re supposed to be getting more focus on Kal.

3. Deck of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman – I LOVED the Devouring Gray so much and I’m so excited to see how this duology is going to conclude. Book 1 ended on some heartbreaking and shocking notes and I’m ready to be destroyed by this sequel. Thanks to NetGalley, I have an eARC and I’m hoping to get to this one in early April.

2. The One by John Marrs – Okay so I saw one of my friends talk about this one on Insta and then saw Kayla from BooksandLala rave about it and, yeah I was sold. This one sounds so interesting. I really enjoy books that questions ethics and science going too far and this seems like another hit in that sub-genre.

1. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones – Okay, I’ll throw you all a bone here. I’ve mentioned that I’ve been working through a secret TBR and this is one of the books on it. This one is shaping up to be the last one I need to finish, so I figured I’d toss it on this list.

What are some books on your Spring (or Fall for my Southern Hemisphere friends)?

Be sure to let me know below!

  1. I’m honestly SO on the fence about Sanderson? Ever since reading somewhere [probably Twitter] that he’s a homophobe, I don’t know what to do about his books. They sound GOOD but.. apparently he has something against.. well.. me and a whole lot of my friends / family? [This sounds so dramatic, doesn’t it? πŸ˜› ]

    Anyway! I REALLY NEED TO READ HOUSE OF EARTH AND BLOOD. I keep seeing it everywhere and I want to but I need to finish my current reads first and then there are ARC’s and then there’s the Magical Readathon and.. yeah.. disaster..

    I hope you’ll love Throne of Glass! I have the books in their miniature versions as well and they’re so CUTE. Also amen to Aurora Burning. I am so, so ready to dive into that one. So ready.

    [Also excuse all the caps used in this comment. I’m high on cafein.]

    1. Hahaha you’re fine!

      I have a super tricky relationship to Sanderson. I’ve also heard that he’s super homophobic and I hate that, but I also have recently taken the “Death of the Author” approach to books. As long as there isn’t blatent homophobia in his work, I’m more willing to support it. I may not have him sign my work or attend a panel he’s on, but I also enjoy the fantasy stories that he crafts. I feel like it’s the same mentality that still lets me justify buying special editions of HP despite JK being a mess.

      OMG READ HOEAB! It’s definitely my favorite of the year so far and definitely worth the hype!

      1. I’m going to have to get the same approach! Nobody will ever stop me from buying my childhood series in multiple editions [especially the illustrated ones..], so I might as well broaden it to all authors and not only JK. Thank you!

        Haha, I knoooow I should read it! I MIGHT pick it up as soon as I finish The Monster of Selkirk 3. πŸ˜€

      2. Right?! I still have to reread the third one though.. Like.. That sounds like a perfect quarantine-plan?! Going to write that down now, haha.

        I WILL! I’m actually planning on maybe reading through the night since Jamie will be sleeping in my mom’s room and.. I just feel like it? [and being overly tired tomorrow but whatever] So if I finish my current read FAST [200 pages to go, but it is fantasy so it reads more slowly], I can dive into it? Maybe? HOPEFULLY?!
