Top Ten Tuesday (#1)


Format: select

Okay, so having started my book blog and posted a couple reviews, things feel good. But I’m realizing that I should probably organize my reading list a little bit. I’m also looking to start participating in some memes every now and then. So when I saw that today’s Top Ten Tuesday was for “Top Ten Books At The TOP Of My Spring 2013 TBR list” I thought, PERFECT. Now I have a legitimate excuse to make a list of the upcoming releases (some of which I’ve got ARCs for) that I want to read and review!

So here goes. My first meme~

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It features weekly top-ten lists, and this week it’s: Top Ten Books At The TOP Of My Spring 2013 TBR list! Here are mine:

8113512 10222362 12425146 13049981 10507293 12157365 16101128

And here’s why they’re on my list:

  1. Poison (released today!), by Bridget Zinn: This just sounds light and quirky and fun – I mean, there is an adorable enchanted pig. Come on!
  2. Mila 2.0 (released today!), by Debra Driza: Girl android dealing with memory-loss issues, has been described as the first in a “Bourne-style” trilogy, and great for fans of Divergent. You couldn’t pay me to stay away from this book.
  3. The Art of Wishing (March 21), by Lindsay Ribar: I am really looking forward to this. The guy is a GENIE. Like, an I’ll-grant-you-three-wishes genie. I’m not sure why that fascinates me, but it does, and I want this book. Also I think the cover is really whimsical and pretty.
  4. Rise (April 2), by Anna Carey: I wasn’t totally enthralled by the first two books, but I am super curious to see how things play out after the end of Book 2, so I’m excited for this one.
  5. Light (April 2), by Michael Grant: This series is just… I don’t know why I like it. It’s totally disturbing on so many levels and I don’t normally read books that genuinely gross me out or disturb me but….. I just can’t look away. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. *ahem*
  6. Taken (April 16), by Erin Bowman: REALLY excited for this one — fast-paced, action-packed, with lots of twists and awesome world-building. I mean, give me this book now please.
  7. The Selection & The Elite (April 23), by Kiera Cass: These are on my list because I have an ARC of The Elite, and I’ve wanted to read The Selection for a while anyway. I’m a little worried that I won’t like it based on reviews I’ve read, but I do still want to read it, so…
  8. Unraveling & Unbreakable (April 23), by Elizabeth Norris: I’m super excited to read these. I actually just started Unraveling today, on a whim, and it begins with the heroine getting hit by a truck and killed in the first chapter, and I guess (though I’m not that far yet) she ends up having to stop the end of the world. I love it already. And I have an ARC of Unbreakable, so I’ve really got to read/review these before that one comes out.
  9. Invisibility (May 7), by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan: Hello gorgeous cover. I usually don’t like it when words are split like that but LOOK at those colors. I love it. And the concept of a guy who’s been invisible his whole life, meeting the one girl who can see him, just sounds really good to me (if done right). Fingers crossed.
  10. The 5th Wave (May 7), by Rick Yancey: Snagged an ARC of this one, too, and I could not be more excited. ALIENS. I’ve also heard it compared to The Hunger Games / I Am Number Four / Across the Universe… and based on the reviews I’ve seen so far, I’m going to love it. Ugh. I am so excited.

BONUS! Books already out that I’ve got on my to-read list this spring:

13401993 9248345 12476820

  1. Dualed, by Elise Chapman: I’ve seen a lot of so-so reviews for Dualed, but I think the premise sounds AWESOME, so I’m really excited to read this one.
  2. Starling, by Lesley Livingston: Norse mythology <– that’s all it took for me to be interested in this one. I am a little wary, just because I’ve heard the cliffhanger is awful, but… I’m a glutton for punishment, so.
  3. Partials & Fragments, by Dan Wells: This is a series that I’ve been meaning to pick up forever. And Fragments just came out last month, so I feel like I should get on that while it’s still sort of “new”.
  4. Hysteria, by Megan Miranda: I loved Miranda’s Fracture, so I’m ignoring all the negative reviews about Hysteria and going into it with a totally open mind.
  5. The Darkest Minds, by Alexandra Bracken: I have heard SO many good things about this book, and from what I’ve read it sounds a little bit like Heroes (maybe? superpowers? yes?), so I do not know why I haven’t read it yet.
What’s at the top of YOUR Spring 2013 reading list??
