TTT: Spring TBR List

Just so everyone knows, I usually (as in never) read all the books on my seasonal TBR lists. (I only read one on my winter list) I only read about 35-40 books a year, and lots of times pick them on a whim.  So, if you see book from Winter’s TBR that’s why.  Also, I’d like to admit I’m a genre-binger.  I got through phase. For example, I’ll read five dystopian novels in a row, get tired of them, and read eight fantasies. I’ll get tired of those and read four contemporaries.  It’s just how I work.  I just got done with a fantasy binge, and honestly don’t know what is next.  So, this list is just an idea not a schedule.  I hope ya’ll enjoy.

My Spring TBR List
1.      The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer—I read this one back in 2004, but there’s a sequel now.  So, I’d love to reread it and then read the sequel, The Lord of Opium.
2.    The Fault in our Stars by John Green—We are going to have a book discussion about FioS in June (right before the movie comes out) at the library, so I really, really need to reread it.

Continuing a Series
3.    Savage Drift (Monument 14, #3) by Emmy Laybourne—CANNOT WAIT! Comes out on May 6th!
4.    The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2) by Maggie Stiefvater—I’ve been meaning to get around to this; maybe it’ll be this spring.
5.     Requiem (Delirium, #3) by Lauren Oliver—I enjoyed the first two on audiobook, so I’d like to listen this one on audiobook as well.
6.    Alliance (The Paladin Prophecy, #2) by Mark Frost—Yus! Adventure! I’m not in a fantasy/adventure reading mood right now, but I’ve been waiting on this book, so that may change.

Novel Reads 
 (Ha! See what I did there.  Novel has 2 definitions)
7.     Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell—It’s been a while since I’ve read a YA Contemporary novel, and I’ve heard such good things about this book and Rainbow Rowell
8.    Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson—Three words to explan why I want to read this… LAURIE. HALSE. ANDERSON.  She a literary genius!
9.    The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau—Supposed to be well liked by Hunger Games fans, so I’ll give it a try.
10. Orleans by Sherri L. Smith—Being a Louisiana girl, I can’t pass this up.  I’m not from South Louisiana; I’m in the northern part of the state, but this book sounds awesome!


  1. I loved The House of the Scorpion when I read it years ago. I vaguely remember hearing about a sequel... Nancy Farmer can usually be relied upon for a good story. A Girl Named Disaster and The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm are also highly enjoyable.

    1. I readher trilogy (The Sea of Trolls) and really, REALLY enjoyed each other those books, but haven't read A Girl Named Disaster or The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm. I know I've checked out A Girl Named Disaster out from the library, but ended up reading something else.

  2. I've been wanting to read Orleans for a while, so hopefully I'll get to it soon. I LOVED The Impossible Knife Of Memory, and it's amazing! Of course, it is written by Laurie Halse Anderson, who's completely awesome. Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier, and happy reading!
