Spring Into Action

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new topic/top ten list and invite everyone to share their own answers. I'm so obsessed with lists - so it makes perfect sense that I'd love this feature!

I always look forward to the season changing because it means I get to pick the books for this list. I finished all of the books on my Winter TBR so quickly, and I'm hoping to do the same thing this time. Since I'm participating in so many challenges this year, six of my choices will help me make progress on those! 

Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR


1. The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen / FANTASY / I loved The Queen of the Tearling, so I've been dying for this release. I can't wait to return to this world, but I'm most excited about more time with Kelsea!

2. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas / FANTASY / NEW SARAH J. MAAS GOODNESS? Of course I'm ecstatic! I'm dying for more Throne of Glass, but this will definitely hold me over until then.

3. The Scarlet Trilogy by A.C. Gaughen / SERIES / I've heard such amazing things about this series, but I've been holding off until the last book releases so that I can binge it. It's finally time, and I can't wait!

4. The Little House Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder / SERIES + RE-READ / I re-read the first book in this series a while ago, but it's time for me to finally continue and binge them all again. Talk about memories.

5. Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell  / RE-READ + DIVERSITY / This was one of my childhood favorites, and I can't wait to re-read it with Estelle for our You Make Me Feel So Young feature.

6. Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee / DIVERSITY / HELLO. This is one of my most anticipated 2015 debuts! From the cover to the summary, everything about this book sounds like it's going to be a winner for me.


7. The Things We Know By Heart by Jessi Kirby / The summary for this book reminds me of the movie Return to Me, which I've always loved. I'm not sure what to expect, but I always love contemporaries in the spring.

8. The Mapmaker's Children by Sarah McCoy / I love Civil War fiction, so it was a given that I'd want to read this book. But add in a gorgeous cover and a summary that promises an Underground Railroad mapmaker - YES.

9. It's Not Me, It's You by Mhairi McFarlane / I fell for McFarlane's You Had Me at Hello last year, and I've heard even better things about her most recent release. Plus, it helps that the cover is absolutely adorable.

10. Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein / Yes, I still haven't read this book. With Wein's newest book coming out soon, I won't let myself buy it until I take this one off my TBR. I don't know why I've been dragging my feet!

  1. I so want to reread the Little House series and Island of the Blue Dolphins. They were both such great books from my childhood.

  2. It seems like everyone has Court of Thorns and Roses on their TBR list. I can't wait to read it either! I've also read The Things We Know by Heart, and I loved it.

  3. I read ACOTAR earlier this month and it was freaking amazing. I can't wait for you to read it, Hannah! I'll also be reading The Invasion of the Tearling and Things We Know By Heart soon and I'm so excited! I adored Kelsea in The Queen of the Tearling and I've been a huge fan of Jessi Kirby since reading Golden so I'm in for a treat. :D

  4. I love this list. I now have more books to add to my Spring TBR. I am really intrigued by The Things We Know By Heart, I will have to find this book and read it soon. I'm not normally one for YA contemporary novels, but this sounds so good. And based on the description you are correct, it does remind me of the movie Return To Me, which I adored.

    Thank you so much for sharing! Feel free to check out my Spring TBR List: Logophilist

  5. Rose Under Fire destroyed me, but it was so good! I think you'll really like it. I'm also excited for another Sarah J. Maas book and Under the Painted Sky. Great choices!

  6. Great list! A Court of Thorns and Roses is on my list too. I just finished Heir of Fire (about two days ago) and I'm already dyyyyyying for more Maas in my life! I'm intrigued by Queen of the Tearling too, but worried that it might be TOO high fantasy for me. I might have to sample a few chapters at the bookstore before I decide =) I just started Things We Know by Heart, and I'm liking it a lot so far. I've never read a Jessi Kirby novel before, but I really like her writing style!

  7. I hope you know that I will be eagerly anticipating your thoughts on A Court of Thorns and Roses. I mean, it's Sarah J. Maas, so my watchfulness when it comes to friends reading her titles is really not all that surprising ;) Also, I need to know what you think of Under the Painted Sky! It sounds like a fantastic story, and I hope you love it -- so that I'll be encouraged to read it too ;)
