Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Spring 2016 TBR


Happy Tuesday!!!! I’m feeling even more enthusiastic than usual for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday because this week is my SPRING BREAK! *rejoices spectacularly* While I do love college, midterm season has me definitely looking forward to relaxing and catching up on some sleep this week. Plus, I can finally get around to blogging more often!

Anyways, this week’s theme is perfectly suitable for this time of year: The Top Ten Books on My Spring 2016 TBR. Because my college workload doesn’t allow much time for reading books of my choice, the majority of this list will be books that I’m assigned to read over the course of the rest of the semester. Still, I’m hoping to find time during breaks to squeak in a few others!













What books are on your spring TBR list? What do you think of the books on my list? Let me know in the comments section below!

    1. I think that’s part of the reason why I haven’t read The Rest of Us Just Live Here yet, even though a copy of it has been sitting on my shelves for months now. I’ve loved everything else I’ve read by Patrick Ness, and I’m just afraid that this one won’t live up to my expectations. I guess the only way to know is to read it, though!

  1. I was just talking about A Vindication of the Rights of Women with my son yesterday. I was explaining that, at the time, women were believed to be intellectually inferior to men (as well as morally superior!). Wollstonecraft pointed out that this was an illusion based on women’s lack of education and sheltered existence. My son, age 10, was quite angry at the injustice of the situation.

    1. I love that you talk about it with your son! I think conversations like that are so important. It’s assigned reading for my philosophy class, which is basically an intro to social and political philosophy (sooo much social contract theory! haha). I’m really looking forward to reading it!


    1. I didn’t like The Sun Also Rises much either when I read it over the summer, but hopefully I’ll enjoy it more when I read it with my class! Thanks! 🙂


    1. Thanks! 🙂 I was so happy when I first looked at the syllabus and realized all the awesome books we’d be reading– my professor has good taste!


  2. I so enjoyed The Great Gatsby. I definitely want to reread it this summer since that book takes place during the summer. Though spring can most certainly feel like summer sometimes! I also really want to read a Hemingway novel. I think you have chosen a good one. Happy reading!

    1. I absolutely loved The Great Gatsby when I read it my junior year of high school, so I’m super excited that I get to revisit it again with this class. You’re right, spring/summer is the perfect time to read it, too! Thanks! 🙂

  3. Great choices here, and tons of classic! I’ve always thought I should pick up more classics but end up trading them for YA books because they’re easier to read, haha. I’ve read The Rest of Us Just Live Here and am ‘meh’ about it, but I’ve also seen reviews that really loved it — so hopefully you like it!

    1. I’ve been on a sort of classic kick lately, so I’m just going to ride that wave as long as it lasts haha 🙂 I’ve heard mixed things about the new Patrick Ness book too, so hopefully I end up enjoying it! Thanks! 🙂


  4. I just laughed so hard at your choices also being mostly classics! That’s awesome. I always feel like I need to read more classics, I tend to enjoy them. Maybe I’ll sneak The Scarlet Letter and Tortilla Flat or anything you recommend in? 🙂 My TTT

    1. hahaha I didn’t even notice they were almost all classics until you mentioned it, but it’s so true 🙂 I guess I’ve just really been in the mood for classics lately, and I might as well read them while they’re on my mind. Thanks for commenting! 🙂


  5. I’ve had The Great Gatsby on my shelf for ages and still haven’t gotten to it yet! Classics are always slightly daunting to me though T_T. I enjoyed The Rest of Us Just Lived Here but it wasn’t as good as the rest of his YA books that I’ve read. Nothing beats Chaos Walking – that trilogy was just epic!

    1. The Chaos Walking trilogy is definitely something that I need to read ASAP– I’ve heard incredible things about it, but I just haven’t gotten around to reading it. Hopefully this summer will finally be the time that I do! 🙂
