Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR 2018


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and the meme moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to list their top ten books on their spring TBR. The following books are in no particular order and it was hard to even narrow down my selection to only ten books.

1. Legendary by Stephanie Garber is one of my most anticipated books for the spring, let alone the year. After reading Garber's entrancing debut, Caraval, I cannot wait to read the sequel in Tella's point of view. On a happy note, Ms. Garber will be visiting the Brookline Booksmith on Monday, June 4th and I cannot wait to meet her!

2. Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli is Albertalli's third book and boy is everyone excited about this one. With the popularity of Simon Vs. the Homo Sapien's Agenda, this companion novel is in Leah's point of view. Don't worry, Simon still makes an appearance.

3. Little Do We Know by Tamara Ireland Stone is about complex relationships between two next-door neighbors who are ex-best friends with a guy caught somewhere in the middle. I loved Stone's Every Last Word and Stone's writing. I am hoping to enjoy this novel.

4. From Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon is Menon's second book. I fell in love with When Dimple Met Rishi so when I heard about this book, I added it to my TBR right away. Twinkle is an aspiring filmmaker who ends who getting closer to her longtime crush but then falls for her crush's twin brother. Rom coms for the win!

5. Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch has been on my TBR for a long time. I loved Welch's novel Love & Gelato which takes place in Italy so naturally I want to read Love & Luck which takes place in Ireland. I can travel through the eyes of another :).

6. Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi is Chokhi's first middle grade novel. Here we follow Aru Shah in a journey involving Hindu mythology. This is also the first book being released by Rick Riordan Presents imprint and is the first book in the Pandava Quartet. I am a big fan of Chokshi's other books and I cannot wait to read this one.

7. The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo is Goo's third novel. After reading I Believe in a Thing Called Love, Goo's books have been on my radar. I am excited to read about Clara's summer working on a food truck! Although Clara is forced to work on the family food truck because a joke at school went terribly wrong, the whole premise about food trucks definitely caught my attention. I love food trucks!

8. The Unfortunates by Kim Liggett is a horror novel which will not disappoint. I have fallen in love with all of Liggett's novels from her paranormal hormances to her horror novels. I'll read anything that Liggett writes and publishes!

9. The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan is Pan's debut novel and its release date is today! I cannot wait to read this book and I am hoping to meet Ms. Pan in April when she visits Wellesley Books for an event with Julie C. Dao. The novel is about Leigh who is half Asian and half White. When her mother died by suicide, she believes her mother took a form of a bird. Leigh travels to Taiwan determined to find her mother. As she grieves, she also learns a lot about her maternal family.

10. Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian is the perfect summer read! This novel is about Amelia who works for The Meade Creamery stand every year for the past few years. When the founder passes away and the grandnephew takes over, Amelia is adamant for certain things to stay the same. I used to work at an ice cream shop for seven years so of course I gravitated toward this book in a heartbeat.
