Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly linkup of book bloggers hosted by The Broke and The BookishAnd for this first week back after what was a well-timed break for me, we're looking at our Spring TBRs. This is kind of a rough outline for me, because I'll have some book club picks that'll get inserted in here, but here are the next ten books I'm planning on reading!



Green Girl: Kate Zambreno is an author I've heard good things about and this was a Kindle sale special so I picked it up. It's about a young American woman struggling through living in London and I'm intrigued.

Chemistry: This is a 2017 release I've been looking forward to, about a Ph.D. candidate who has a bit of an identity crisis and tries to discover who she is outside of her chemistry studies, and I got an ARC so I'm super pumped.

Stranger In A Strange Land: I do enjoy the occasional science fiction, and this is a classic of the genre.

The Love Song of Jonny Valentine: This was another Kindle sale pickup about a preteen pop star that seems to be kind of loosely based on Justin Bieber and it seems interesting.

The Road to Jonestown: Another ARC! This one is about the People's Temple cult, which is a story I've always been fascinated by, so I'm really excited to read a book about it.

Innocent Traitor: Alison Weir a favorite author of mine, and while she usually writes nonfiction history, this is a fictional account of Lady Jane Grey, who's a really interesting figure.

My Sister's Grave: This one I'm honestly not much looking forward to. It was a Kindle First pick quite some time ago and maybe I'll start skipping some of these because there are so many books I DO want to read out in the world. Maybe I'll skip this one. We'll see.

All The Lives I Want: I've honestly soured a bit on the "humorous essays" genre, but Alana Massey is such a fantastic writer that hers is definitely one I'm happy to be able to read early (got an ARC!)

The Children of Henry VIII: More Alison Weir! I love royalty history and this one touches on both the actual Lady Jane Grey as well as Edward, Mary, and Elizabeth.

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius: I've heard really mixed reviews on this Dave Eggers memoir, so here's hoping I am more of a "loved it" than a "hated it".

    1. It's one of those classics that I feel like I should read...hopefully I like it better than I liked Dune, which I read for the same reason!

  2. Chemistry has sort of caught my interest and almost made my Most Anticipated Books of Spring list.

    1. It looks like the kind of thing I'd really like: I love books about overachievers who get kind of lost, because I really identify with that story!

  3. Great list! Chemistry sounds really interesting, and I'm always up for more Alison Weir recommendations - I really do need to read something by her this year!

    1. I've read so many books about them that you'd think the charm would have worn off by now but it totally hasn't!
