Good morning ya’ll!
It’s Tuesday, it’s Tuesday *does a little dance* so it’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the lovely folks over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books at the Top of My Spring TBR List. This should be easy 🙂
1. Ex-Heroes by Peter Clines – I saw this at Barnes and Noble the other day, and it sounded really interesting. After seeing that it got really good reviews online, I’m so psyched to read it. It’s about superheroes trying to protect Los Angeles from the zombie plague. SUPERHEROES AND ZOMBIES. Goodness.
2. The Mad Scientist’s Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke – This is a new sci-fi book that’s gotten really fantastic reviews. I think it’s about a girl and her robot. I really want to read it.
3. The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy – I think this is a YA or children’s book, but it looks so fun! The various Prince Charmings from various fairy tales are often sitting on the sidelines, but soon they band together to protect their kingdoms from various threats. It sounds like a really fun twist on fairy tales!
4. Something Rotten by Jasper Fforde -I really, really like the Thursday Next books and I have no good reason for not having read this one yet.
5. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen – The only one of Austen’s six novels that I haven’t read yet. It’s on my Classics Club list and I think it’s time I crossed it off!
6. The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver – I have had this book sitting on my shelf pretty much since the day it came out like 2 or 3 years ago. I really like Kingsolver (The Poisonwood Bible is one of my favorite books) so I don’t know what the hold up is, but I want to finally read it.
7. Divergent by Veronica Roth – This is a super-hyped up YA book, but I found it used for about $2 so I figured I’d try it. I mean, the movie is going to have Kate Winslet in it so maybe it’s better than the slew of other dystopian YA flowing from the publishers these days.
8. Paradox by Jim Al-Khalili – I picked this out when the honeyman took me book shopping for my birthday. It’s about 9 of the major paradoxes in science and explains how they’re not really paradoxes if seen from the right angle and using the right science. It sounds really fun.
9. The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly – Oh look, yet another book I’ve owned forever and still haven’t read! Something about a kid mourning his dead mom finding refuge in books and it reality and fantasy become magically blended… I don’t know. It sounds like something I would like, you know?
10. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas – Another book from my Classics Club list that I want to get to soon. I literally know nothing about this story. The closest I can get is saying that I really like the candy bar (haha), so this should be interesting.
So that’s my list! And this is the tip of the iceberg, I promise.
What are you excited to read this spring? Tell me!
