Top Ten Tuesday | Books On My Spring 2021 TBR


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature that highlights ten books that all relate to a certain topic and is  hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. 

This Weeks Topic Is...

Books On Your Spring 2021 TBR and I always like when these seasonal prompts come around as it gives me a good excuse to go through my shelves and pick out the books I should be prioritising for the next couple of months. A lot of these are actually library books or ARC's that I need to get read so it's a nice little reminder.

Among the Beasts and Briars by Ashley Poston

I'm planning on reading this book possibly for Becca and The Books 48 hour Bookoplathon happening this coming weekend. The first two prompts are fantasy and dark cover so I'm combining them to make it easier on me. I know this picture makes it look super vibrant and colorful but I promise the Owlcrate edition is darker in person!

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski

This is the March pick for the Literally Dead Book Club that Booksandlala hosts and I've had this book for a little while but it's so freakin huge that I just keep ignoring it! When I found out that it was the book club pick I decided that it's now or never buuut I still haven't picked it up yet and there's two weeks left in the month and I already have so much to read so it's not looking promising 🙈

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo      

I'm currently reading Siege and Storm as part of a readalong to get all of the Grishaverse books read before the Netflix adaptation is released at the end of April, and whilst the Shadow and Bone trilogy has been ok so far, I'm just really excited to get to Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. The majority of people prefer this duology and it just sounds like it has a more interesting group of characters. 

The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel

I really loved Station Eleven when I read it in January last year and so when I spotted this on my library app I automatically reserved it. I'm interested to see how the two seperate events converge and I just think that the author did such a great job with the cast of characters in Station Eleven that i'm interested to see if she manages to do it again in this novel. 

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart  

I've had this book on my Apple books app for bloody years and I think I started reading it in 2019 but I forgot about it a chapter or two into it and then never went back 😬. It hasn't put me off though as this was such a talked about book at one point and I am really interested in the plot. Also it's one of the only books I own that fits the Popsugar reading challenge prompt to read a book with a family tree!   

Threadneedle (The Language of Magic #1) by Cari Thomas 

Still can't believe that I was approved for an ARC of this on Netgalley, it sounds so magical and right up my street. I really want to get this read by the middle of April so I can have my review done with plenty of time before it's release date in May. If you like witchy books and dark magic definitely check this one out so we can talk about it!

The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani     

I always like to have a good selection of ebooks to read and this was another I found on my library app and I remembered hearing that a film adaptation was in the works. I'm pretty sure this is a middle grade that follows two young girls who find their destinies reversed at a fairytale-esque magic school. This sounds like a really interesting concept and I will happily read anything fairytale related. 

The Flip Side by James Bailey  

I haven't been much interested in contemporary romance since Christmas but this was new at my library and it sounded like a good choice for when i am in the mood for that particular genre. It's giving me Sliding Doors or Serendipity vibes already with the whole letting the coin decide and leaving things up to fate. It's sounds cute and I'm looking forward to picking it up. 

Feminists Don't Wear Pink and Other Lies by Scarlett Curtis    

I've been severely lacking when it comes to reading non-fiction over the lat couple of months and I'd really like to get back into it. I own both of Scarlett Curtis' essay collections but this one is tempting me right now. I'm really interested in feminist works, both fiction and non-fiction, and I'm excited to read from some of the contributors particularly Saoirse Ronan because I adore her!

How To Be Brave by Daisy May Johnson

The most recent addition to my Netgalley ARC's because although I'm trying to be good I couldn't resist requesting this middle grade that sounds so wonderful. I love books set in boarding schools and especially ones with a main character that seems to attract trouble and fights back against those that attempt to keep them down. This one's not out until July so i've got a bit of time.
