Welcome back, it’s Tuesday, which mean’s it’s also Top 10 Tuesdays, which is now hosted by Jana @ThatArtsyReaderGirl, make sure to check her blog out!
There are so many books that I could pick to be on my TBR list for spring. Honestly, I already have a boatload of books checked out from my library that I want to read, have limited time left to read. It’s the one thing that is difficult about being a person who a) is a slow reader and b) reads multiple books at one time. Checking books out from the library is stressful! I feel like I have to give them all my attention because the next thing you know, they’re due and someone wants them so I cant renew!
Anyways, that was an off-topic tangent. I picked out the top 10 books that I’m already starting to read/want to read soon for this list. Just know that this list could go on for much longer and that I make no promises to myself that I’ll get these read in the actual spring time.
Anyways, here’s the list:
I ordered this book, since I couldn’t get it from any local channels. I’m excited to read it! It’s for one of my reading challenges, which is to read a cook book by a woman of color. I loved Nadiya on Great British Bake-Off and I’ve seen a few of her cooking shows. She’s so cool and her food always looks so good! I hope to try a lot of these recipes as soon as I get the book.
This book has been on my radar for a while, I hear so many glowing things about Allende as a writer. This is the book she’s most well-known for, I believe. It’s also a book I have filling one of my reading challenge prompts, which is a book by a South American author in translation. Allende is Chilean-American. It’s a magical-realism story, which is a genre that can be hit-or-miss for me, but I hope to really enjoy this book!
I am continuing my read-through of all of Christie’s Poirot novels. I love Christie as an author and Miss Marple is my favorite of her detectives. Poirot is pretty awesome, too. I’ve seen most of the adaptations of his books. This one is not one of my favorites, but I’m looking to see if I enjoy it in book-form more. It’s a novel made up of mini-cases. She has a similar book in the Marple series as well. Whether it’s incredible or not, I’ll probably still enjoy it because I usually enjoy anything Christie writes.
I’m almost finished with Golden Son, and this book is the next and last book in the trilogy. I’m really enjoying this series! Brown is an excellent writer and I love this world he has built. The characters are interesting and dynamic. I hope that this book brings the series to a satisfactory conclusion. I might continue reading his books, because I know there are more books in this world. I’m not quite sure how the relate, but I’m sure I’ll look into it once I finish this series.
I’ve been on-off reading this book for a while now! But I’m so, so close to finishing. I definitely don’t love it the way I loved The Night Circus, but it has it’s own charms. I think the characters just aren’t as compelling in this book. I like the world she’s built, but I feel like it’s so surface-level compared to the world she built in Night Circus. I also wish the audiobook was read by Jim Dale, like the other one was. I’ve been listening to the audio and it’s a cast of characters. It’s okay, but I don’t love every voice they have reading.
I read Lee’s Pachinko and it was so good! I thought I should read her other novel, especially since this book is going to be adapted into a mini-series! I know next-to-nothing about it, but that’s okay, because I know Lee is an excellent author and she’s so good at writing character-driven stories. I look forward to reading this!
I’ve been making my way through Oseman’s Heartstopper series and loving it! Apparently the characters from that series are mentioned/connected to this story. I have heard so many great things about this book on other blogs, and about Oseman in general. She seems really cool and I’m kinda jealous of her writer-life! Anyway, I hope this book is as awesome as I’ve heard it is!
I actually came across this book recently and I immediately checked it out from the library. I am really interested in growing my knowledge of Indian/Native American literature and commentary, in all its many forms and genres. This book is very readable! It’s divided into sections that address the various questions the author has been asked after many of his lectures/talks. I really like it so far and I’m sure I’ll be recommending this to everyone.
I’ve had this book on so many book lists! I want to read it already! This spring, I’m making it happen. I have my own personal copy that I received as a birthday gift last year that’s been sitting on my shelf calling out to me not to forget it. Well, this spring I will follow through and read it. It sounds like it’s going to be good, and I’m excited to read it. I hope it lives up to my expectations!
I tend to snatch up any book that deals with Britain and romance. I have a weakness for it, I admit. This book is calling out to me because of this and because it just looks so damn cute! I’m looking for a nice, easy, romantic read and I’m hoping this book is going to hit all those notes. I’m ready to swoon and fall in love with new characters!
