Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR 2015

nfn tttYou guessed it: here’s another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the blog the Broke and the Bookish.   The spring season is fast approaching, which means it’s time to start thinking about our reading for the warmer weather. Since I’m a mood reader, my reading taste definitely changes from season to season. In no particular order, here are the Top Ten Books on My Spring 2015 TBR List:

A Darker Shade final for Irene1. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

I loved the ARC preview of this book that I finished recently (review will be up shortly!) and I can’t wait to read the full novel! I’m waiting for the downloadable copy on my state’s library website to be available, so hopefully I’ll be able to read it soon. Schwab builds such a great fantasy world and I can already tell that I’m going to really enjoy the story.

Harry Potter y la camara secreta2. Harry Potter y la cámara secreta by J.K. Rowling

This is the Spanish translation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and I’ve been reading this book for months and months. It takes me a while to read each page because I don’t actually speak Spanish fluently- I’m only learning it in my high school Spanish classes. Hopefully I’ll finally get around to finishing this book this spring!

Xenocide by Orson Scott Card3. Xenocide by Orson Scott Card

I loved the first two books in this series (Ender’s Game and Speaker for the Dead) and I can’t wait to continue on with this third installment! These stories are always so complex and detailed, and I love being able to spend time in this futuristic world. It’s almost like reading an episode of Star Trek, and what can be better than that?

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black4. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

Despite the fact that we have the same first name (Hollys unite!) I’ve never actually read anything by Holly Black. I’ve had the ebook edition of this novel sitting in my Nook app for the longest time, and since I’ve been in a more fantasy mood lately I think it’s finally time that I read it. I’ve heard great things about Holly Black’s writing, so hopefully this one is great as well!

The List by Siobhan Vivian5. The List by Siobhan Vivian

Since my high school days are coming to a close in the next few months, I think I should read  more books set in high school while I am still going through similar experiences. Like the previous ebook I mentioned I’ve had this one for a while. I don’t think I’ve ever read anything by Siobhan Vivian, so it should be another interesting new author experience!

let's get lost cover6. Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

I was originally attracted to this book by the gorgeous cover- I have a weakness for anything map-related, and I just love the colors and style of the font! When I learned that it’s about a road-trip, I knew that I had to read it. I’ve heard some mixed things about it, but I’m going into it with an open mind. Who knows? Maybe I’ll end up loving it!

One + One = Blue by M.J. Auch cover7. One + One = Blue by M.J. Auch

I bought a physical copy of this book a while ago but I just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. It’s a middle grade novel about two kids who both have synesthesia, which is such an interesting topic. The story seems really cute, unique, and down-to-earth, which are three things that I love in books!

Wild by Cheryl Strayed cover8. Wild by Cheryl Strayed

Hiking is one of my favorite things to do in spring and summer months, so this book is definitely something that I would find interesting. The fact that this is a memoir makes it even more fascinating, since someone actually lived through these experiences. This seems like such an inspiring story- plus, the movie is supposed to be fantastic as well!

jane eyre cover9. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

I’ve been meaning to read this classic novel for so long, and I think that this spring is finally the time to do it! So many people love this book, both online and people I know in my English class and at the various libraries I visit. It’s been recommended to me countless times, so it’s definitely a must-read this spring!

pride and prejudice cover 210. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

I first read this classic novel back when I was in ninth grade, and I don’t think I really got everything I could have out of reading it. Now that I’ve read more from this time period and know more about how society was back then, I think I would have a bit of a different opinion about it. I can’t wait to see how my views have changed since four years ago!

This may seem like a really random assortment of books, but that’s because it is a pretty random assortment of books! I probably won’t get to all of them in the coming months and I’ll most likely end up deviating from this list a bit, but these are just some of my options.

What books do you want to read this spring? What do you think about the books on my list? Let me know in the comments section below!

Yours,

HOLLY

  1. The Coldest Girl looks great! So does basically anything Schwab writes 🙂 Weirdly enough, I tried to read Harry Potter last year when I was taking Spanish! I ended up just re reading the English version once my exams were over 😛
    Thanks for visiting Addlepates and Book Nerds! 🙂
