Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Someday, when I bust out of this reading slump, or conquer all these ARCS, I’m going to read whatever strikes my fancy for a month. So there’s likely no sticking to this list. Here’s what I’m excited about, ARCs or No.
The Gone-Away World by Nick Harkaway – Gnomon was a mind bender that made me work for it. While I think I’ll put this off until my reading slump is definitely over- I’m eager to get back to his work.
Full Throttle by Joe Hill – Now that I’m thinking about it, a Joe Hill anthology is probably exactly what I need to dump the slump. Short attention spans aren’t really an issue in a book of short stories.
Raven Stratagem by Yoon Ha Lee – I want to get this read before I forget what happened in Nine Fox Gambit! (For a review that explains the Machineries of the Empire better than I ever could, please check out Ola’s review at Re-enchantment of the World.)
Killing Gravity by Corey J. White – This was a Tor Freebie not too long ago. It’s a novella so perfect for the amount of attention I seem willing to give books lately, and one that’s been on my radar for awhile.
The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel – This is one of the few ARCs I have that I am still super excited for! It also is neither fantasy or sci-fi, so it will give me a much needed break from the genre.
Code Name Helene by Ariel Lawhon – This is another that falls outside my usual genre, but I’m eager to get to it. I’ve heard great things about Lawhon and historical fiction usually makes me all happy inside.
The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwell – Keeping with the theme of Historical Fiction (and in my desperation to seek out comforting reads in turbulent times) I’m eager to reread this. Especially since the final book in the Saxon Stories was recently announced.
The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones – Because Horror. That’s it.
We all know I’m not likely to stick to this TBR… and there are probably 30 other books I could put here. What have you got planned for the spring?
