Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. There is a new subject each week and this week's topic is Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR List.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I love fairy tale retellings so I am looking forward to this version of Beauty and the Beast. I've heard that this is classified as "New Adult" as opposed to YA fiction so I hope that I'll be able to decide if I should put it in the library's teen fiction collection or with our fiction for adults.

Inside the O'Briens by Lisa Genova

I recently read and loved Still Alice and this story sounds like it deals with some similar questions involving a hereditary disease (Huntington's Disease in this case).

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

This is a YA debut that I am particularly excited about since it is a retelling of A Thousand and One Nights.

Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed

This debut is the story of a young Pakistani American teen who falls in love and is then taken to Pakistan where her parents plan to force her into an arranged marriage.

The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

I want to read this romantic comedy because it is loosely based on the romance of Prince William and Kate Middleton (if you couldn't guess by the cover).

P.S., I Still Love You by Jenny Han

I really liked To All the Boys I've Loved Before so I am eager to read this sequel and hope it won't disappoint!

Things We Know By Heart by Jessi Kirby

I am a fan of Jessi Kirby's books and this one sounds like it will be an emotional story. A young teen is grieving the death of her boyfriend and trying to get in touch with the boy who received his heart.

The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler

This is a contemporary romance with a "Little Mermaid" vibe to it. I like that the protagonist is from Trinidad too.

Letters to the Lost by Iona Grey

I love historical fiction set in WWII. In this novel, a young woman in modern times escapes a dangerous relationship and ends up in an abandoned house where she receives a letter written between an American bomber pilot and a British woman in 1942. She becomes determined to find out what happened to them.

Beach Town by Mary Kay Andrews

I love Mary Kay Andrews! Her books always remind me of summer. While I probably won't be near a beach this summer, I think this will be a fun book to welcome my favorite season :)


  1. I love the sound of Beach Town...must check that one out. I could go for a summer read right about now. :) I am currently reading Things We Know by Heart and so far it's off to a great start. I also got an ARC of The Royal We (sounds like so much fun!) and The Summer of Chasing Mermaids. I can't wait to read P.S. I Still Love You and Sarah Maas newest, although I still need to get caught up on her other series. Awesome list! Now bring on the spring weather, right? :)

  2. I am SO looking forward to PS I Still Love You and Things We Know By Heart! A Court of Thorns and Roses is SO good. I can't wait for it to come out so I can see people's reactions!

  3. I can't wait for PS I Still Love You! I never wanted the first book to end. I haven't read Maas before but I've heard great things about her books and hope to read Court of Thorn and Roses, my first book by her, this year too. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
