Top Ten Tuesday: 2013 Spring TBR List

So many books. SO MANY BOOKS.  Here's my top ten of books to read this spring:

Top Ten Books To Be Read This Spring:

1. Game, by Barry Lyga

It's the sequel to I Hunt Killers and it's coming out next month. CANNOT WAIT.

2. The Madness Underneath, by Maureen Johnson

Another sequel, this one to The Name of the Star.  Also CANNOT WAIT

3. The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame

It is the next on #TheList according to my randomly generated list.

4. The Diviners, by Libba Bray

I tried reading Going Bovine once, but it's about 1000 pages long (I exaggerate) and I had only one day to read it (it was for class and writing the 3 papers that were also due in that two day span took major precedent) and I couldn't quite make it through (solid effort though).  The Diviners is on the Hub Reading Challenge, so I'll give it a whirl.

5. Legend, by Marie Wu

It's checked out already and sitting on my shelf waiting for me to finally get through the books I checked out prior to it.

 6. Wonder, by R.J. Palacio

A few weeks ago, I put a bunch of ebooks on hold and they've, of course, all come in this week.  Now I'm rushing to get through them all in the 2 week period.  This is one of those books.

7. Wonderstruck, by Brian Selznick

I'm head over heels in love with The Invention of Hugo Cabret, so it's kind of ridiculous that I haven't read this book yet.

8. Janie Face to Face, by Caroline B. Cooney

CBC was one of my all time favorite YA authors growing up and the Janie series was my second favorite of her works (Twenty Pageants Later holds the top spot for anyone who's wondering).  When I saw that a 5th book in the series came out, my mind was blown.

9. Son, by Lois Lowry

Same as above.  As someone who pretty recently found out that The Giver was the first in a series, I finally finished Gathering Blue and The Messenger, allowing me to finally read Son.

10. Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn

I own it, so I may as well read it this Spring.  I just have to work through the mountain of library books with due dates.

More awesome books to be read at The Broke and the Bookish!


  1. Wonderstruck is such a beautiful book! It's one my must-buy-a-copy list (I borrowed it from the library). And I loved The Diviners (and didn't love Going Bovine). These are terrific choices! I want to read Wonder also.

    1. That's good to hear about The Diviners because I also wasn't able to get into Going Bovine, as much as I appreciated the premise.
