Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we’re tackling the very difficult task of picking out our top ten spring TBRs–and let me tell you, with a TBR pile currently sitting at around 900 books (!), that’s no easy task. However, here are ten of the books that I’m most eager to read in the coming months, now that I can look forward to sitting on the porch in the sun to do so:

1. Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel–I’ve heard so many rave reviews from friends! I’m starting this now.

2. Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell–I really enjoyed The Bone Clocks and am eager to read this so I can see the movie.

3. The Mistborn series, by Brandon Sanderson–a Christmas gift from the hubby!

4. Dawn’s Early Light, by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris–I got tired of waiting for the library to get this, so I finally bought it–it was only $6 after all.

5. A Dance With Dragons, by George R.R. Martin–I’ve held off on it forever, but I’m dying to know what happens next.

6. The Lunar Chronicles, by Marissa Meyer–I’ve heard nothing but good things about this series.

7. Shutter Island, by Dennis Lehane–I really enjoyed the movie, hopefully the book is just as good.

8. Seeker, by Arwen Elys Dayton–I’ve heard that this is a really good YA pick, and great for fans of The Hunger Games.

9. The Magicians trilogy, by Lev Grossman–because I love anything to do with magic.

10. Dust, by Hugh Howey–I need to finally finish the Silo saga and see how it all ends!

 

9 Comments on Top Ten Tuesday: books on my spring TBR list

  1. STATION ELEVEN IS FABULOUS. I can’t even express how epic it was. Such a wonderful reflection of human nature. And enjoy A Dance of Dragons — I guarantee book hangover and much moping about waiting for GRRM to write the next one XD

  2. I need to check out Station Eleven as well. My tbr pile is huge as well. Got the new Adler-Olsen book today so of course I have to start it tonight. :)

  3. I am starting Station Eleven this week, if we are reading at the same time we should tweet each other about it (and convince Katrin to join!)

    I had to reread Cloud Atlas after Bone Clocks and Ghostwritten, I found out that as well and the overlaps in the books there are overlaps between books. Eg. Dwight Silverwand is introduced in Mitchell’s first book Ghostwritten. One of the characters in Ghostwritten also has a comet birthmark which features heavily in Cloud Atlas!

  4. There’s so much love for Station Eleven – sounds like we both need to read it!
    I read & love The Bone Clocks last year & would really like to get to his back list, although I have heard that Cloud Atlas is difficult to get into.

    Good luck

  5. Thank you for picking of Dawn’s Early Light! Great timing, too, as The Diamond Conspiracy is coming out at the end of this month, so you won’t have to wait long for the follow-up. ;^) Pip and I hope you enjoy the ride and pay us a visit at The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences where we have free audio short stories available. Tallyho!
