The topic was Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List, but since there are just too many if you include all the ones already in my possession, I thought I'd stick with books that are not yet out. I know it's been said already, but there are just far too many books, and far too little time to read them. So we'll start with my Spring 2012 TBR list (in order of release date and linked to their Goodreads summaries):
1. A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont (March 27th)
The MC, Emma, in this story gets sucked into a copy of Jane Eyre, one of my favourite classic reads. Sounds like a dream come true (minus the crazypants wife). Sign me up!2. The List by Siobhan Vivian (April 1st)
From Goodreads: "An intense look at the rules of high school attraction--and the price that's paid for them." The list is basically a hot or not ranking that goes up every year, destructive in many ways. This feels like it could be good, but also difficult to read.3. Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross (April 10th)
Fans of TV shows like Grimm and Once Upon A Time, might find this one appealing.4. Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin (April 24th)
From Goodreads: A "reimagining of Edgar Allan Poe's gothic horror story The Masque of the Red Death". A deadly plague, romance, and saving the human race? Yes, please.5. The Selection by Kiera Cass (April 24th)
From the sounds of it, a girly dystopian with a kickass heroine. Not sure if you know, but it will be airing as a weekly TV drama on the CW this Fall. Could be interesting.
6. Insurgent by Veronica Roth (May 1st)
This one tops my Spring 2012 TBR list, but also my 2012 TBR list in general. I've been waiting for this one since reading Divergent (twice) last year. It's been a very long wait!7. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore (May 1st)
I actually have an ARC of this which I received from Bailey at Over Yonder... I still have yet to read Graceling and Fire, but those are up next after I finish my reread of Mockingjay. It would feel like a waste of an ARC if I didn't read it before its release.8. Enchanted by Alethea Kontis (May 8th)
I'm a total sucker for a fairy tale adaptation/retelling, so this one caught my attention. It takes on The Frog Prince, made popular by the Brothers Grimm. Intriguing....9. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo (June 5th)
Between the recommendation on the cover by Veronica Roth, and the total fangirling on Twitter by folks that I follow (one said she loved it as much as Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor), I'm pretty much sold. Not sure if it is set in Russia or what (the cover and names point in that direction), but that would only make it more appealing.10. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick (June 14th)
After reading (and loving) Stephanie Perkins' books this Fall, I went on a hunt for something similar. In my Goodreads wanderings I stumbled upon this book, and found this description appealing: "A debut novel about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another." Still a ways to go :(
