Top Ten Tuesday is THE bookish meme, hosted by the wonderful ladies at The Broke and the Bookish, the book blog that hooked me on all other book blogs! I’m a sucker for bookish memes, so here we go…
Today’s topic is Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR List, but it’s autumn (fall) in Australia so I’ve tweaked it a bit to reflect that! I’ve divided my list into new releases, library books and books I own, so here we go!
Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira (1 April): I’ve never read anything by this author but the synopsis sounds so interesting and different from what I usually read. I’ve seen some really great reveiews for this, so I thought I’d give it try.
The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith (15 April): I’m really looking forward to this one, I love this author and both her other books! Another cool and unique premise, and I adore the cover!
Open Road Summer by Emery Lord (15 April): Another author I haven’t read before, but this contemporary YA sounds right up my alley. A book about friends and romance, what more could I want? The pretty cover is just a bonus 🙂
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson (6 May): I would buy anything Matson writes in a heartbeat, and I’m pretty sure I added this to my TBR list before even reading the synopsis…
The Whole of My World by Nicole Hayes: I randomly stumbled across this one at the library and promptly borrowed it when I saw it featured Aussie Rules football – I can’t recall having read a book with AFL in it, so I’m really looking forward to this one.
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales: This got rave reviews last year and I’ve finally gotten around to borrowing it from my library. I’m also looking forward to crossing Sales off my epic fail list…
Books I Already Own
Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott: I’ve heard good things about this one, so when I saw it in Big W the other day I couldn’t resist! I’ve really gotta stop going to their book section, it’s far too tempting when I already own so many books that I haven’t read…
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: I bought this when I was in the US last year shortly after it was released because I just HAD to have it then and there… Surprise surprise, I haven’t read it yet! I am determined to change this before Winter rolls around 🙂
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein: Another book I bought while I was in the US (I went on a bit of a book buying binge, they’re so much cheaper over there!) – I started this on one of my many plane trips (how apropos!) but couldn’t get into it. I wasn’t in the right frame of mind at the time, very tired, so I’m sure I’ll have more success the second time around.
I could’ve included SO many other books in all three categories but I’m amazed (and a little proud!) that I managed to limit my list to the above ten books. Hopefully when winter rolls around I’ll have crossed them all off my TBR list altogether! Of course, that’s not going to stop it from growing in the meantime…
How about you, what books did you have on your list? Have you got any others that you could recommend to me?
