Top Ten Spring TBR Books

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted weekly by the lovely ladies at The Broke and The Bookish.

Today is officially the first day of spring, so this week's top ten spring TBR books is highly appropriate! I think there are actually more books that I want to read coming out this summer, but I've definitely seen quite a few interesting titles for spring.

Once again, I don't rank things well, so they're alphabetical by author.

New Releases

Kelley Armstrong
Darkness Rising #2
Expected publication April 10

I loved The Gathering and am anxiously awaiting The Calling. Maya is a great narrator, Kelley Armstrong has created a world with depth, and there will (presumably) be Cabal shenanigans! I am excited.

Kevin Hearne
Iron Druid #4
Expected publication April 24

Iron Druid is freaking hilarious. I love Atticus, and I love Oberon even more. This is just such an amazing series and I can't wait for more.

Gemma Malley
Killables #1
Expected publication March 29

I actually hadn't heard of this one until my friend got her hands on a copy (because apparently it was released earlier in the Netherlands? It was weird. I'm slightly jealous). She's been raving about how spectacular it is ever since, so now I really want to read it!

Richelle Mead
Bloodlines #2
Expected publication June 12

I always enjoy Richelle Mead's writing, and Bloodlines was no exception. I'm quite interested to see how the series continues in The Golden Lily!

Veronica Roth
Divergent #2
Expected publication May 1

I am sure you do not need an explanation for this one!

Rachel Vincent
Unbound #2
Expected publication June 1

I absolutely loved Blood Bound, especially the shadowy world of magical organized crime. I've heard a few whispers that Shadow Bound is even better, and I'm waiting in agony to get my hands on it.

Topping Mount TBR
i.e. Books I own (or borrowed from the library) and just haven't gotten to read yet

Peter V. Brett
Demon Cycle #1

I've been meaning to read this book for a really long time. It's been compared to The Name of the Wind, which was one of the best books I've ever read. I finally got a copy, and it's just been sitting on my Kindle, waiting for my attention. I must get to it soon!

Rachel Caine
Morganville Vampires #11

I love the Morganville Vampires series, and I'm finally almost caught up! I just need to finish Last Breath before Black Dawn comes out (also this spring).

Rae Carson
Fire and Thorns #1

This book finally arrived from the library, and as soon as I finish my other library books that are due Thursday, I'm starting it. I have heard so many wonderful things, and I'm really excited to read it!

Mark Lawrence
The Broken Empire #1

Another book I've been meaning to read for a while. I really haven't been reading enough epic fantasy lately, and I'm hoping to remedy that...as soon as I finish with my review books. And library books. But it will happen!

What are you planning on reading this spring?


  1. Wow! Great list! Insurgent is one that I'm definitely pining for and almost every other book you've listed is on my I need to read list.

    My TT/Top Ten Tuesday post is here

    Happy Reading!

  2. Great list :) I want to read those ones so bad, Especially Prince of Thornes :)

  3. Oooo... Girl of Fire and Thorns is another I should have added. I'm really interested in that one! Great list! I still need to read Divergent, but I have a feeling I'll be dying for Insurgent right after!

    :) Here is my choice...

    Top Ten Tuesday

  5. I really loved The Warded Man - really interesting fantasy, and I liked the twists. Great list - happy reading!

    Tara @ Hey, Tara

  6. mmmm...The Calling and Insurgent!! I want I want! I just love anything by Kelley Armstrong apparently! Nice list! Here's our Top 10 this week! Happy Reading!

  7. Insurgent is one of those books I want to get to soon as well. A few others on your list look tempting too.


  8. I wonder if there will be many lists that DON'T have Insurgent! I know I can't wait! Nice list!

    Check out YA Litwit's Top Ten Spring TBR Books and my GIVEAWAY of a SIGNED HC of Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver!

  9. The Girl Of Fire And Thorns is AMAZING! Seriously, it is worth moving right to the tip top of your list!

    I had the Calling on my list as well!

    Also am SOOOOOOOO excited for Insurgent. :-)

    Happy spring!

    My TTT

  10. Oh! I have over half of you list on my TBR List. Not all of them made it on my Top Ten but we def. share the same taste in books! ;0) Someone just recommended The Killables and I am looking forward to reading that one.

    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday

    Happy Reading!!! We will have to compare notes. +new follower

    Amanda @ Sisters Unedited

  11. Great list! I'm dying to read INSURGENT!! It just looks amazing. I really loved THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS ... I didn't know what to expect, but I ended up really enjoying it.

    Happy reading!

  12. Prince of Thorns is on my list for a while. Looking forward to your review! And you made a nice list.


  13. I can't wait to read Insurgent. Waiting for the third book is going to be a torture.
    My Top Ten Tuesday

  14. Gosh, I want Tricked so badly, I preordered it months ago! It was slightly ridiculous. Who preorders books 6 months before the release date? :D
    Last Breath won't disappoint you, I promise. It might even be my favorite of the series. :)

  15. Ooh, I can't wait for The Calling and The Golden Lily. I completely spaced those books when I created my list. And I just finished Last Breath yesterday, and it was good! Great list!

    My Top Ten

  16. I tried SO hard to get into Bloodlines, but just couldn't. I'm going to give it another go soon, because I LOVED the VA books!

    Mmmm, The Calling. Kelley Armstrong is one of my all time favorite writers, whether it's her YA books or her PNR!

    My Top Ten


I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.

Finally, if you're posting a URL, the code to make it actually link to your site is <.a href="your URL">your text<./a>, without the periods.
