Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Spring 2020 TBR. There are so many books to read and not enough time! These are the ones I hope to read in the next few months.

Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen: I decided to reread all of Austen’s novels this year, starting with the ones last published and working backwards. I’m finishing up Mansfield Park this month and will move on to Pride and Prejudice in April and Sense and Sensibility in May.

Bone Crier’s Moon by Kathryn Purdie: This sounds so good and I have high suspicions that it’s a book pick for a subscription box I sometimes get it.

The Moment of Tenderness by Madeleine L’Engle: I recently heard about this and while it’s not something I’d normally read, I’m excited to read something new-ish by L’Engle.

Aurora Burning by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: I need it now! Which reminds me… I should probably go preorder it.

Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner: I should have read these books forever ago, but I’ve only read The Thief… twice, and I finally read The Queen of Attolia last month. I want to read through the series before the last book comes, so I better get to it.

Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness: I decided to reread The Knife of Never Letting Go via audiobook since it’s an Odyssey Award nominee. It was fantastic, so I decided to listen to the rest of the series and I hope to finish both of them this spring.

Book Club books: I’m in two book clubs and I also lead a book club at my library, so I have quite a few books to read (or reread) in the next few months for each club, including Cinder by Marissa Meyer, The Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee, Fireborne by Rosaria Munda, Within These Lines by Stephanie Morril, and A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers.

Books for review: I’ve also been blessed by NetGalley with several awesome early copies of books, but I need to read them to review them. ASAP. These include Ruthless Gods by Emily A. Duncan, The Stone of Sorrow by Brooke Carter, The Seven Endless Forests by April Genevieve Tuucholke, and Chasing Lucky by Jenn Bennett.

More TBR Backlist books: In addition to new books, I want to read more book on my TBR backlist, specially books I own.

  1. That’s quite the list, wow! I want to read all of Austen’s works also (for the first time, for me) but I’ve been spacing them out more than you have. Still, they’re enjoyable reads — especially as audiobooks, which is how I’ve been reading them!

    • I made this list BEFORE everything went crazy, so now I’m expecting to read more books. Though I don’t know if I’ll need to read the book club books yet, depends on what happens.

      I really just want to read through Austen’s books again for the first half of the year so I can move on to something else. Mansfield Park is really dragging me down. (It’s my least favorite of her books and I hate almost all the characters.) Maybe next time I reread some of them, I’ll try audiobooks!

      • Good point, things have gone nuts now. I’ve been doing more knitting than reading myself (so far), but I think there’s only going to be so much TV I can watch and books will take over from that soon.

        I like listening to period pieces like Austen’s books. It gets me in the proper mood to enjoy them without comparing them (as much) to today’s society.

      • Yeah, I found myself playing more video games than reading right now, though I’ve done some reading. (I blame getting a Nintendo Switch recently.) But I’m still hoping to get through quite a few books over the next two weeks.

        And that’s an interesting idea about the audiobooks. I never thought about it! 🙂

    • It’s so much better than I could expect. It does have a different writing style than YA fantasy today, but reading them reminds me of the early 2000s fantasy, so I’m completely on board. 🙂

  2. Great list! I am looking forward to reading the Chaos Walking trilogy. I’ve heard some really good things about it. I also can’t wait to get my hands on Bone Criers Moon! I’m so in love with the cover 😍 Happy re-reading Jane Austen and I hope you enjoy all these books!

    • Chaos Walking is interesting! It’s a lot to think about and take in.

      And yes! Bone Crier’s Moon has a GORGEOUS cover.

      Thank you! 🙂
