Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for March 19th, 2019 is: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR.
1. Aru Shah and the Song of Death by Roshani Chokshi
I have a physical ARC of this book thanks to Jenna @ Falling Letters and I want to get to it as soon as possible!
2. How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell
I love the animated movie adaptations of this series, so I decided to try out the books. I will be reading it in April as a part of the OWLs Readathon hosted by Book Roast.
3. Game of Stars by Sayantani DasGupta
This is one of my most anticipated sequels of this year and I cannot wait to embark on another adventure with Kiranmala!
4. All the Wandering Light by Heather Fawcett
I loved Even the Darkest Stars, the first book in the series, in 2017 and can’t believe I’ve waited so long to pick up the sequel! This is another book I’m reading for the OWLs readathon.
5. Hungry Hearts edited by Elsie Chapman and Caroline Tung Richmond
This book was featured in my diverse anthologies list and I’m so pleased to announce that I’m part of the blog tour being organised by Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads and CW @ The Quiet Pond! This will also count towards the OWLs readathon.
6. The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston
I want to break up all the fantasy books with a dash of light-hearted contemporaries this season and I’ve heard nothing but good things about it from Charvi @ Not Just Fiction, so I’m going to be buying this as soon as it’s out.
7. There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon
Sandhya Menon has become an auto-buy author for me after I adored both When Dimple Met Rishi and From Twinkle, With Love, so I’m going to pre-order it and finish it by the end of May.
8. Circe by Madeline Miller
I’m a bit ashamed to admit that this is a carryover from last year’s fall TBR, but this gem of a book is still sitting on my unread shelf, so it’s time to rectify that soon.
9. The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien
I believe I started it around the same time last year but stopped after 5 chapters. This time I’m determined to forge ahead and finish it, as it’s a high-priority read for 2019.
10. The Kingdom of Copper by S. A. Chakraborty
I’m not sure if I can realistically get to this book by the end of spring, but this is another sequel I can’t wait to dive into because the first one ended on a huge cliffhanger.
What’s on your spring TBR? If you need some help deciding what to read this season, check out my book recommendations for spring. I’m usually in the mood for light and happy reads at this time.
