March 19: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR
My reading has been a bit all over the place recently, I want to take control of things and stick to a plan, but I’ve been struggling with a really short attention span. I can start books no problem, sticking with them is where things start to go wrong. Still, I’m optimistic that things will get better, so these are the books I’m hoping to get to soon.
1. The Near Witch – by V.E. Schwab
The book that started it all, reborn at last. I’m really looking forward to picking this up. I know next to nothing about the plot, I don’t want to. I know enough about Victoria Schwab’s writing, to know that I need to read it. I’m looking forward to discovering what it’s about as I read.
2. The Sawkill Girls – by Claire Legrand
This was on my TBR for autumn, and I never got around to reading it. However, I feel very drawn to this book right now, so I’m hoping to get around to it quite soon. I’ve heard some really good things about this one, and I’m really curious.
3. Bloodwitch – by Susan Dennard
I’ve been waiting so long for this, but I kind of want to take my time and savour it, because I know I’ll have to wait a while for the next one. One way or another, I will definitely be reading this in the next month or so while everything is still fresh from my reread, and I anticipate this being a five-star book for me.
4. The Quite at the End of the World – by Lauren James
Ever since I read The Loneliest Girl in the Universe, I’ve been wanting to read more by Lauren James, and this seems really interesting. I have quite high expectations for this book, it’s been getting some really good buzz.
5. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown – by Holly Black
I’ve been meaning to read this for literally years at this point. It’s been on so many TBRs, and I’ve still not gotten around to reading it. Normally I would treat this book as an autumnal read, but I’ve been in the mood for what I’m calling nostalgic YA recently, and I think this book might satisfy that.
6. King of Fools – by Amanda Foody
I’ve loved both of the books by Amanda Foody that I’ve read, and I’ve been desperately waiting for King of Fools since the moment I finished Ace of Shades last year. I have really high expectations for this book. I just got approved for an ARC on Netgalley and simply cannot wait to get into it.
7. An Enchantment of Ravens – by Margaret Rogerson
I’ve heard some really good things about this book, and the curiosity has gotten the better of me. I’ve not done too much research into the plot, I’m planning on diving in blind. It might have to wait a little while though, because I feel like this is the sort of book I want to read in the sunshine.
8. Two Can Keep A Secret – by Karen M. McManus
I really enjoyed One of Us is Lying, so I’ve been looking forward to this since it was announced. I’m in a thriller/mystery kind of mood recently, so I’ll probably be picking this one up soon.
9. The Devouring Gray – by Christine Lynn Herman
Everything I hear about this book makes me want to pick it up more and more. I’m really intrigued and every person who has been lucky enough to read this already seems to have loved it. I cannot wait for it to come out, so I can dive into it.
10. Once & Future – by Amy Rose Capetta & Cori McCarthy
A sci-fi King Arthur retelling, count me in. To be honest, I was sold on this book by that fact alone. Then I heard that this book has a lot of queer rep, and my excitement for it skyrocketed. I’m desperate to get my hands on this!
