Okay, technically this week’s subject is “Ten Signs You’re a Book Lover,” but I totally missed posting my Spring TBR 2 weeks ago, and I can’t let a seasonal TBR post go by, even if I’m a bit late in posting it and even tho I only ever sorta follow my TBRs (is that sign #1 I’m a book lover? lol).
Also wow, it’s been so long since I’ve last written a TTT post! Usually I aim to participate at least once a month, but it’s been almost two full months (I think my last one was on Feb. 4, which technically still follows my goal, but it was still so loooong ago).
I was kinda up in the air about what I wanted to read for awhile, so I organized my thoughts by dividing my TBR into a bunch of sub-categories. It was really helpful, tho it resulted in me listing a wide variety of books, from YA to erotica to Sci-Fi, so bear with me!
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.
Books I Own & I’m Excited to Pick Up:
1. Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
Magic, libraries, and monsters? I acquired this book last summer, and I don’t know how I haven’t read it yet. (sign #2??)
2. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
This will be a reread for me! Ever since I read the first book, I’ve been meaning to return to the series (I’m horrible at finishing series–sign #3 I’m a book nerd??). And now with the 4th book coming out in December, this will be the year for me to finally catch up on this series, so I need to start back at book 1!
Some ARCs I Want to Get Around To:
3. Lobizona by Romina Garber
Release Date: May 5th, 2020
I’ve been horrible about reviewing books in a timely manner, but I’m determined to stay on top of this one! (says all book people. Sign #4??)
4. A Queen in Hiding by Sarah Kozloff
Release Date: January 21st, 2020
Whoops, a bit behind on this one. Luckily, I won it in a giveaway, so I don’t feel too bad about not having picked it up yet, but I still wanna sometime this spring!
5. Two Girls, A Clock, and Crooked House by Michael Poore
Release Date: September 10th, 2019
Snagged an ARC of this one like a year ago, and still haven’t read it, eek! But it sounds cute, light, fun, and it’s MG, so now feels like the perfect time to read it! (If you follow me, you’ve seen this on a lot of my TBR posts, whoops)
Books from the Library:
6. The Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee
Was suppose to read this for part of a book club and even though I haven’t started it yet, I still wanna pick it up!
7. Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann
Been eyeing this one for the past couple of years, and now that I have it checked out from the library for awhile, I want to pick it up after my semester ends!
8. The Tea Dragon Festival by Katie O’Neill
Everything Katie O’Neill creates is so pure and adorable and I’m determined to read all of her graphic novels!
Books to Read before my Kindle Unlimited Trial Ends:
9. Smut by Karina Halle
A smutty romance novel about two creative writing students who write smut together and fall in love? I’ve been drooling over this book since I first heard of it, so I’m determined to read it before my Kindle Unlimited trial ends!
10. Aftershocks by Marko Kloos
Now this normally isn’t the type of book I gravitate towards, but 47North was kind enough to send me an ARC of the sequel, so I want to give the first book a try.
