10 Books On My Spring TBR (2021)

Tuesday, March 23, 2021

It’s been a minute since I posted, hasn’t it? I didn’t mean to take an entire month off but, I suppose, that’s what happened. Grad school started up again and I’m taking on a full schedule this semester. Plus, I am currently suffering the worst reading slump ever. In fact, I only read four whole books in February and started countless more books that I never finish (though I will pick them up again someday). Hopefully, things will turn around for me and I’ll be reading more this spring. I certainly have so many books I would like to pick up!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is: Top 10 Books On My Spring TBR:

Happily Ever Afters by Elise Bryant: I haven’t heard a lot of people talk about this one. However, it’s a contemporary romance that is marketed as Jane the Virgin meets To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. That certainly sounds like my perfect book!

Bookish and the Beast by Ashley Poston: The first book was a retelling of Cinderella, the sequel was Prince and the Pauper and the third one, it seems, will be a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I am so here for it!

The House in the Cerulean Sea by T. J. Klune: I feel like everyone has been reading and talking about this book. It sounds like such a cute read!

We Free the Stars by Hafsah Faizal: I really enjoyed We Hunt the Flame, Faizal’s 2019 debut. So, you can bet I’ll be reading this one soon. Her writing is so fantastic. I can’t wait to revisit the world!

Fable by Adrienne Young: To be honest, I picked this up because of the hype. I know very little about this book except that there’s pirates and thieves. I’m always on the look out for a fantastic pirate book!

The Project by Courtney Summers: I don’t think I’ve ever read a book about a cult before. After loving Sadie, I knew for sure I definitely wanted to pick up whatever Summers releases next! Lo works for a magazine and has just received the biggest scoop that will expose the cult she’s been researching. Lo hopes by exposing the cult, she can also reunite with her estranged sister, Bea, who is in the cult herself. Can't wait to read this one!

We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This by Rachel Lynn Solomon (6/1/21): Today Tonight Tomorrow was one of my favorite books of last year; I have to read her new book! It follows a harpist and a waiter who work weddings, and if this isn’t ingredients for a charming YA romance, I don’t know what is.

Love and Olives by Jenna Evans Welch: You know how much I love amazing romances abroad. I’ve adored every other book in the companion series as well. Love and Olives is set in Greece and I can’t wait for some swoonworthy scenes in front of some gorgeous backdrops.

If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka: I can’t believe I hadn’t read anything by this author duo until last year. Since then, I’ve been slowly working through their backlist and this one is next on my list. It’s a retelling of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.

House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas: The size is a bit daunting but I think I want to try and tackle it this spring. I haven’t acquired her newest book in the ACOTAR series yet but I’d thought I would finish this one first. 

What are you planning on reading this spring?

  3. The Project sounds awesome! My Spring TBR pile is getting quite daunting too (lol) but that won't stop me from adding to it. I thought I would recommend one of my recent reads "Girl with the Rose Tattoo" by Larry Weiss. This is a book that had me hooked from start to finish. The story follows Tina, a young headstrong rebellious teen who has partnered up with a terrible guy who views her as HIS property. For anyone who has been in a bad relationship this book is for you. Tina ends up pregnant, homeless and still at the mercy of Rob, vengeful/violent jerk(!!!) who keeps coming back. It isn't until she meets a new friend and protector (her true alter-ego) Jenny that she begins to realize her own inner strength and power.

  4. I could just sing praises about this FABLE- it’s AMAZING! It really strikes a good balance of romance, adventure, mystery, and action I think!!
