Top Ten Tuesday | Spring 2017 TBR (or the Books That I Want to Read this Spring But Probably Won’t)


Hello, readers and friends. Despite my best-laid plans, the blog is a little sparse on content this week. But despite this, I do have intentions for new content and fun (aka a giveaway!), today we’re returning to our standing Tuesday date.

Broke and Bookish March 14 | Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR

So as is always the case with my seasonal TBRs, they never end up being what I’d like them to be. For example, making a spring TBR at this point is kind of an oxymoron for me. Allow me to elaborate.

Much as I’d like to read some of the books on my bookshelf, the chances of me actually reading them is slim to zip. The reason being I have two stacks of books (books that are, seriously, mocking me) of INSPYs reads. Still it’s nice to think perhaps there’s a chance I’ll read some of these. Because of this, and simply for the fact that I enjoy talking all things books and nerdy fangirl with you all, I’m still putting a list together. Who knows. Perhaps I’ll surprise myself and actually read some of these.

Let’s jump into spring TBR-ing.

1. Intermission by Serena Chase | Many of my blogging friends and reviewers who I trust say this is a must read. My response? To buy a copy for the bookshelf. Amazon | Goodreads

2. Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering | Part of the #WeHeartDrew fan club. ‘Nuff said. Amazon | Goodreads

3. Life After by Katie Ganshert | Now, I’ll admit I did fib above. This is actually a review book kindly sent to me by Waterbrook (after requesting it), so naturally, I will read this one – and in fact, it's my current read. Guys, you must excuse me while I talk about this book for a minute. Life After is poetry. Life After is brilliance. Life After is heartbreaking. This novel is, without question Katie’s best yet – and her prior novels are all wonderful (or I recommend those I have read), so go forth and pick this one up. Amazon | Goodreads

4. Wait for Me by Caroline Leech | Given that my reading is lacking in YA historical reads, this one is a story I’m really excited for. Let me know if you’re read it. Amazon | Goodreads

5. Geek Girl: Picture Perfect by Holly Smale | Read Geek Girl earlier this year, and aww, it was my cup of tea. Such a sweet/cute story, not to mention one I’d like to think we can all relate to. Amazon | Goodreads

6. Hunted by Meagan Spooner | This beauty releases today, and the fact that it’s a Beauty and the Beast re-telling makes me one happy reader. Cannot wait to have its brand of pretty on my shelves. Amazon | Goodreads

7. When Tides Turn by Sarah Sundin | Looking for a smashing historical (WWII) novel? Look no further than Sarah Sundin’s books. She’s got an incredible line up and there’s no doubt this newest will follow in its predecessors footsteps. Amazon | Goodreads

8. Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse | I started to read this one high on the promise of its Anna and the French Kiss comparison. Sadly (via my rankings), it’s no ‘Anna,’ but I do like the unique setting. Amazon | Goodreads

9. Then Came You and True to You by Becky Wade | Becky’s new series will be a must read because a. her novels are contemporary romance magic (*frantically calls attention to Meant to Be Mine*) and b. I’ve a weakness for contemporary romance. In addition to this prequel novella, I cannot wait to have the first full-length novel, True To You. Amazon | Goodreads

10. The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West | Inserting any of Kasie’s novels in this slot save for The Distance Between Us and On the Fence would fit nicely since I want to continue reading this author’s books. Amazon | Goodreads

Of course there are loads of other books I'm anticipating like Just the Way You Are (reliable source - and #BookBestie! - Courtney says this one is SO good); Jane of Austin (technically a spring release??); Pursued, and many others.

  1. I'm excited to try Seven Days of You because of the cool setting too. I definitely think you're right and it won't compare to ANNA, but maybe it'll be something light and fun??

    1. I think that's exactly what Seven Days of You is going to be, Michelle! I did star to read it, and the setting is the main draw for me - I love armchair adventures and would love to see them happen more often in fiction. :)

      Thanks for making Finding Wonderland one of your Top Ten Tuesday visits.

    1. Me too, Chrissi - Geek Girl is such a fun and easy read. Looking forward to more from Holly. :)

  3. Seven Days of You and the Drew farthering book both look promising. When Tides Turn looks like a good WWII read too...

    1. Sarah's WWII books are always a wonderful read, Greg. Hope if/when you have a chance to meet Drew and read 'Seven,' you enjoy. The former is a great historical series circa the Roaring 20s and the latter is (so far) a lighthearted contemporary.

      Thanks for visiting!

  6. It's good to hear your opinion on Life After. It sounds intriguing, but not the type of novel I generally read. I loved Kasie West's The Fill-In Boyfriend and Intermission deserves all the praise it is getting. It's sweet yet bitter and deeply emotional and charming. Oh and I'm a Becky Wade lover too. The novella is good and something you can knock out in an hour or two.

    1. Five years ago I probably wouldn't have chosen Life After. Not because I didn't think it wasn't good, just because I was all about reading "happy" books. But, Katie's writing is always stunning and this book has been beautiful thus far. I'm hoping to get a review up by this time next week. :)

      Three cheers for the Kasie West plug. Glad to add your name to the list of Intermission recommendations. It sounds wonderful, so I'm eager to read it!

      Becky Wade is, without question, one of the best contemporary romance writer's I've read. Her books radiant with joy even though they do, at times, wrestle with serious and emotional issues. :)

      Glad you shared your thoughts of these, Brittaney and appreciate, as always, you stopping by. :)

  12. If you ever get a chance to read Murder on the Moor, I'd love to know what you think.

    And don't feel bad about having TBR books. I have a whole houseful of them. And I really, REALLY want to read them. I just don't have a clue when. ;)

    1. Oh, I most certainly will make the time, Deanna! I'm so looking forward to returning to Drew and Madeline's world. They're smashing. :)

      We bookish sorts all have this issue, don't we? That's the good thing - we all "get" it, and understand the struggle. It's real. :D

      Thanks for visiting! Always nice to chat with you.

  15. I am SO EXCITED about Seven Days of You - I don't know why I didn't think of this one for my list!
    I'm also planning on reading the whole Geek Girl series soon. It feels like a shame not to catch up now that this last installment is out in the wild.

  18. These are great! I read Wait for Me, and I really liked it. It reads a little young, but the story itself is really quite lovely! Hunted wasn't my fave, but I think I am definitely in the minority there! And I feel you- I tell myself all the books I want to read but then... hahah NOPE! Great list, I hope you get to read lots of these, and that you enjoy them!

    1. Good to know, Shannon! Thanks. I've read YA books that read a little young too (it's so painfully obvious in some of the dialogue), but sometimes, as you say, those lovely reads are precisely what I crave. :)

      Thanks for the Hunted thoughts too! I've read books that fall in that camp too (feeling like I'm in the minority). We'll see - hope I do enjoy. Have you liked/read other of Meagan's books?

      Thanks! You too. Here's hoping we both find we read more of these than we anticipated. Happy spring TBR-ing, Shannon - and thanks for visiting!

    1. Thanks, Jacque. :) I really liked the two novels I read by Kasie a couple of months ago so reading more from her is a top priority; hope you are able to accomplish this bookish goal soon too! :)

      My pleasure. Thank you for the return visit.
