Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly linkup of book bloggers hosted by The Broke and The Bookish! And 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".
