Hey guys! So we’re knee-deep in the spring semester now and a delayed show choir season, so I’ve been pretty busy lately. But I’m hoping to get some reviews out! Because let’s not kid ourselves, I’ve been reading quite a bit lately. Sometimes even two books at once.
Since I’m reading so much, let’s take a look at some things I’m hoping to get to soon!
Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR
1.Chasing Lucky by Jenn Bennett
I got this one from the library a little while ago. We’ve just been reading Holocaust books at school lately and I’ve spent more time trying to catch up on those than my library books. But it’s coming!
2. Once and For All by Sarah Dessen
Ditto what was said above. I think this is the only recent Dessen book I haven’t read yet.
3. Rose Blood by A.G. Howard
Ok, I know this book didn’t get a lot of love, so I’m not sure if I’m going to love it or hate it, but it’s a twist on Phantom of the Opera, a story I know pretty well. And even if it sucks, I really want to see what it does. Besides, this is the writer of Splintered, so we know it’s gonna be weird. Just how weird is the question.
4. A Vow So Bold and Deadly by Brigid Kemmerer
This is the final book in this series, and I’m a little hesitant about it. I truly loved the first book, but the second was just ok. I’m not sure how this one’s going to shake up.
5. Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco
I’m trying to keep this series moving. I read the first two pretty quickly and found them to be…predictable. I’m sure this will be the same, but there’s just something about a female forensic scientist in the 1880s-90s that draws me in.
6. Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergren
This is a time travel story of an American teenager on vacation in Italy when she accidentally travels back to the 14th century and finds herself in the middle of some kind of feud involving some pretty hunky knights, is my understanding. Even if that’s not quite right, it sounds like a lot of fun and something fun to read out on the back patio in the lovely spring weather.
7. The Upside of Falling by Alex Light
This YA romance follows one of my favorite tropes: strangers pretending to be dating for mutual benefit. Becca’s friends keep bothering her about getting a boyfriend, so she makes up a mystery man. Brett, overhearing this, decides to step in as a way to keep his friends off his case. But these two barely know each other, so things should be interesting.
8. Romancing Mr. Bridgerton by Julia Quinn
This is the 4th book in the Bridgerton series. (I read the first three super quickly–reviews coming.) I’m desperate to read this one, which I’m half convinced will either be my favorite or second favorite by the time I finish. I love Colin.
9. Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf
This fantasy has to do with witches and warrior and nobles and revenge, everything that sounds absolutely awesome. It’s got great reviews and I think when I’m in the mood for a good fantasy, this one will be at the top of my list.
10. The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey
*pinches the bridge of my nose* Ok, look. It’s been a while since I’ve read The 5th Wave. But I liked it. And I bought the 2nd book, so I feel like now I have to read it. I keep putting it where I have to look at it and I just never get any closer to reading it. Maybe this time??
