Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR

 Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: Top Ten Books I Want to Read This Spring!


2012 Releases:
1. Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness - a favorite of 2011 was The Discovery of Witches and I'm can't wait to see what happens next.


2. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver - I've already been hearing great things!

3.  There is No Dog by Meg Rosoff - I love the premise of this book and can't wait to read it. 

 
4.  Strindberg's Star by Jan Wallentin - as I said yesterday, this looks like a super-fun read!


5.  Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore - I really loved Graceling so I'm really excited for the chance to enter this world again.
Older Releases:
6.  I Capture the Castle by Dodi Smith - I've been wanting to read this book forever!

7.  Life of Pi by Yann Martel - this is another one of those "I can't believe I haven't read this yet!" books.

8.  The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson - I've only heard great things about this book and it has been sitting on my shelves for far too long.

9.  Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys - everyone was raving about this book last year!

10.  Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie - I feel like I need a short but worthy book thrown in the mix (that way I'll be ready to tackle some more chunksters).

  2. You have some of my all-time favourites on your list! The Gargoyle is, in a word, phenomenal. I hope that you love it as much as I did! I just started reading Pandemonium and it's sooooo good so far. I heart Lauren Oliver.

  16. Bitterblue, YES, good gracious. NOW. Maybe I should reread the others first. Or not. Hmmm.

    1. I think you should definitely read Graceling (as Bitterblue is first introduced in it). But Fire is more of a side book so isn't really necessary (but it's also probably really awesome)! :)

      Delete
  17. Ah, Bitterblue. Must get my grubby hands on it! :D

    I completely forgot that Harkness' sequel is coming out! What's the release date? I need to add it to my TBR.
