Top Ten Tuesday is a feature run by BrokeAndBookish each week – I’m thinking I might not take part every week but just see if a week takes my fancy. As the title suggests, these are ten books I hope to get to over the next few months. Pretty much all of my books are currently packed in boxes as we’re moving house next week so these chosen few (plus my kindle) are to see me through until we’re all unpacked in the new place in a months’ time.
The Secret Fire by C. J. Daugherty and Carina Rozenfeld
This is like a supernatural/mystery/end of the world type book and it’s been ages since I’ve read anything like that and I got to say the cover is one of the first things that drew me to this book – I love it!
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
This one is getting all the buzz at the moment so I’m intrigued to see what I make of it. I might wait a while to read it though as I read A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston in January and I’m slightly worried they’ll be very similar and then I’ll get bored/be biased.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
I got this in the Illumicrate box and I’m interested to see what I think of it. While I like fantasy books I have very rarely read any book centred on witches so it will be new territory for me.
Emancipated by M.G. Reyes
Contemporary isn’t my go to genre but I haven’t read any for so long and this sounds like a mystery with some cool and potentially damaged characters.
A Hero at the End of the World by Erin Claiborne
I got this book on my kindle (along with a lot of other books) via Humble Bundle for $15 which works out to less than £10. A Hero at the End of the World is from an independent publisher that got started via Kickstarter. It’s a fantasy about what happens after the best friend of the destined hero defeats the bad guy instead, so kind of like if Ron had defeated Voldemort instead of Harry. I love that premise and I’ve heard nothing but good things about it.
Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
I read all of the Lunar Chronicles last year and loved the whole world and characters so I can’t wait to revisit it all.
Who Censored Roger Rabbit? By Gary K. Wolf
This is the book that inspired the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit (I never knew it was adapted from a book till recently) I watched and enjoyed the film years ago so I’m looking forward to seeing what the books like and I love things that are about old Hollywood.
Valor: Fairy tale comic anthology about courageous heroines edited by Megan Lavey-Heaton
I got this through backing a Kickstarter project and it is one of the most beautiful things ever! It’s a collection of fairy tale retellings/fairy tale-esque stories either in the form of a comic or as written prose. They all look like such different stories that have been inspired by different cultures fairy tales and I’m so excited to read it.
The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall
I saw GingerReadsLainey describe this book in a video as National Treasure meets Gossip Girl meets The Mummy and as The Mummy is one of my all-time favourite films and I freakin’ love National Treasure I just knew I had to read this book. I know basically nothing else about it and I’m so happy I got sent it for the NinjaBookSwap.
Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin
This is the other book I got sent for the NinjaBookSwap (thanks again Chrissi) and the main character is intersex and I’ve never read a book about someone who is intersex. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book and I’m really looking forward to reading it.
So those are the books on my Spring TBR! Do let me know if you’ve read any of them and if there’s any that I really should read sooner rather than later.
