Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke & the Bookish and you can check it out here if you would like to take part! I looked through my pre-orders and it turns out Spring is genuinely the best time for releases that I am excited for so the only problem here was narrowing it down!

1) Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
The Glittering Court (The Glittering Court, #1)
I was a huge fan of the Vampire Academy books but I was a bit disappointed by Soundless, so I am both nervous and excited for this. The plot sounds amazing and it looks beautiful.

2) Lost Among the Living by Simone St. James
Lost Among the Living
I absolutely adored all of Simone St. James' other books which I read last year so I have been eagerly anticipating this one! I almost can't believe I am so close to actually having it in my hands!

3) Love Lies and Spies by Cindy Anstey
Love, Lies and Spies
I recently read (and loved) These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas, and there was a first chapter sampler at the end for this book. And it was very funny and very well written so I am excited.

4) The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan
The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo, #1)
Rick Riordan. Returning to Camp Half-Blood. I am so far beyond excited.

5) A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)
I will admit I didn't love A Court of Thorns and Roses as much as I love the Throne of Glass series but I am still very excited to see where the series goes.

6) The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
The Rose & the Dagger (The Wrath and the Dawn, #2)
I can't remember the last time a cliff-hanger ending left me quite that frustrated - the first book killed me and I am desperately waiting on this one to bring me back to life!

7) The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye
The Crown's Game (The Crown's Game, #1)
The blurb hooked me and all the advance reviews I've read have been very positive so I am hopeful that I will enjoy this.

8) And I Darken by Kiersten White
And I Darken (The Conquerors Saga, #1)
A brutal princess Dracula character? With lots of murder and revenge? Yes please.

9) The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
The Star-Touched Queen
This books just appeals to me on so many levels and the cover is so, so gorgeous!

10) Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan
Tell the Wind and Fire
I'm getting repetitive but good god that cover! I love Sarah Rees Brennan's writing and humour so I am definitely looking forward to this.

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading

I really like Sarah Rees Brennan too! :-) I hope that you enjoy these books.

Greg said...

The Glittering Court and Love, Lies and Spies have such nice covers, and so does The Wind and Fire. These all look good, plus a new Riordan? I haven't read The Sword of Summer yet but need to.

Stacy Renee said...

Oh, that's the first time I've seen that cover of 'And I Darken'! I like it! I'll admit that the other cover really didn't grab my interest at all. Now I'm a bit more intrigued!

Thannya said...

Hi. :) Four of the books you've chosen are also part of my list. The one I want to read the most is a Court of Mist and Fury. And the cover of The Star-Touched Queen is very beautiful indeed.

Happy readings! ;)

Barb said...

That is an awesome cover for "And I Darken." I have that on my list as well, but my ARC has the other pretty cover. Your list looks great and I hope you get them all read.

Alicia AKernelofNonsense said...

I almost added Tell the Wind and Fire to my list, another Sarah Rees Brennan book is going to be awesome!

I didn't put The Rose and The Dagger on my list today but I am definitely ready for the next part of the story! I also haven't read any reviews of These Vicious Masks yet so I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it! The premise of Jane Austen meets X-Men sounds just sounds awesome!

None of these were on my list this week, but a few of them are on my general TBR.
My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2016/03/15/top-ten-tuesday-48/

Carrie said...

Love, Lies, and Spies should have been on my list this week too! I very much want to read that one :) My TTT

Clare Stone said...

She is such a fun writer! Thank you for visiting!

Clare Stone said...

I am a sucker for a gorgeous cover (although I think I'd be excited for those two if they had the ugliest covers ever!) I enjoyed Sword of Summer but not as much as the Percy books so I am excited to be going back to Percy's world.

Clare Stone said...

I didn't even know there was a different cover! I do like this one a lot!

Clare Stone said...

I recently read the blurb for Court of Mist and Fury and I am now more excited for it!

Clare Stone said...

I am so jealous you have an ARC! I hope I get to read them all too!

Clare Stone said...

I feel like Sarah Rees Brennan is almost an auto-buy author for me!

Clare Stone said...

I really loved it, I thought it was such a great concept and it definitely was very Austen meets X-Men which was amazing!

Clare Stone said...

My general TBR is getting way too long! I hope you get to read these - even if they aren't in your top ten!

Clare Stone said...

It feels like a very long time until it comes out! I am very excited for it, it's probably one of those books I'll read the second it arrives!

Jay Riv said...

A Glittering Court ALMOST made my TTT. Very excited for it. A couple others are on my normal TBR stacks/lists. One day... :)
I hope your spring is filled with amazing reads!

Clare Stone said...

I hope you enjoy all of your Spring TBR as well!
