Daisy's Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List!


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

For future Top Ten Tuesday topics, check them out here!


You guys! It's the first day of spring today!! And what better way to kick off this season which means bye-bye to the nasty cold (a girl can hope right?) than to break out a list with the exciting books coming out between March 20th and June 21st 2012??

I'm doing new releases, but of course it can also be books that are already out, cause a TBR list is just the books you're wanting/hoping to read.

To give you fair warning: you guys know I can never seem to play by the rules right?

1. Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin: the cover for this one is absolutely gorgeous and I've heard people who've been lucky enough to get an ARC gush about it so much I can't wait to read it!

2. Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers: it's about NUNS who are ASSASSINS! Enough said really.

3. A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont: I LOVE Jane Eyre, so this girl falling right into the story is my dream!

4. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore: I know, I still need to read Fire, but I couldn't resist pre-ordering the shiny new book that will be Bitterblue! I adored Cashore's writing in Graceling and I'm sure I'll love this one as well, I've been hearing nothing but wonderful things about Bitterblue!

5. Until I Die by Amy Plum: the second book in the Revenant series, I absolutely LOVED Die For Me when I read it last year and I can't wait to see what happens next for Kate and Vincent. And the cover is just gorgeous!

6. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: YAY NEW FANTASY AUTHOR! I'm really excited about this one, it's supposed to be really good, I can't wait to read it! :) The main character sounds like she'll kick some major behind and I love it when my heroines do that!

7. Of Poseidon by Anna Banks: MERMAIDS! I have a thing for mermaids. And this book sounds amazing!

8. Revived by Cat Patrick: cause really, how could I resist a book that has a main character called Daisy? And one that doesn't sound like she's simpering in a corner for a change?!

9. Struck by Jennifer Bosworth: a girl who is struck by lightning all the time and survives and has strange powers and such. Call me fascinated!

10. The sequels I couldn't all fit into this Top Ten (see, told you I cheat): AKA Black Heart by Holly White (this series is THE awesome!), Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter (I really enjoyed the Goddess Test, yay Greek Mythology!), Dreamless by Josephine Angelini (I was DEVASTATED at the end of Starcrossed! And again: YAY MYTHOLOGY!)

So that's my list, I actually went a little crazy and pre-ordered almost all of these... :) What are you all planning to read this spring? Any exciting books I should know about? I'm always looking to add books to my TBR list, so let me know what I forgot/should definitely order as well!

  3. I love that Grave Mercy is #2 on my list as well, ahaha! And doesn't Revived look amazing? And Struck is SO UNBELIEVABLY INTENSE. And I am dying to read my copy of Shadow and Bone! I had to leave it at my parents' house because it kept tempting me! Fabulous list, Daisy!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hehe we totally have #1,5,7 the same! Good call on Shadow & Bone too!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Grave Mercy was amaaaaazing! And I just started Struck yesterday. I'm intrigued!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Forgot to add Until I Die to mys list! Oops! There are a few titles on your list I haven't heard of which I will promptly take a look at. And "nuns as assassins"...must investigate!

    Great topic as always :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I still need to read Fire too - but I'm looking forward to reading both that and Bitterblue one right after the other - no waiting!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I got an ARC of Goddess Interrupted and I really really enjoyed it. I think you will be swept away throughout the book and completely surprised at the the end. My Review for that is at http://sistersunedited.blogspot.com/

    Grave Mercy is on my TBR List however I did not list this one on mine. I had other that I wanted more. I know I think I have like 20 some books for spring!

    Few YA I am dying to read this spring and on my list are: Insurgent by Veronica Roth, Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep and The Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross. These series are awesome! Happy Spring Reading!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Great list. I'm wanting to buy all of these.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I am loving your list this week! I am very excited for Masque of the Red Death and Bitterblue as well (though you must read Fire first! First because I adored it, second because I heard Bitterblue has Fire spoilers in it).

    Also, we must commiserate about Starcrossed (what the HECK, eding?!) and seriously fingers crossed that Dreamless doesn't end by giving me heart palpitations like the last one.

    I haven't read any of Amy Carter's books yet, but it's a good sign that you're so excited for the sequel... definitely need to get around to those goddess books soon!

    Feel free to stop by and check out my Top Ten List if you are interested.... Happy Spring Reading!! xx

  11. Great list :) I decided to do my list based on the U.S spring and not Australia's just because I have so many great books I want to read coming up!

    Book Enslaved

    ReplyDelete
  12. Grave Mercy is awesome! It's definitely one of my fave books of all time. I'm looking forward to Shadow and Bone too. Masque and Revived look good as well. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow so many books and so little time! Great list

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm really excited for a lot of these books as well. Though they didn't make my list this week. There are way too many good books coming out to pick only 10 :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I used books that are already in my physical TBR pile, but your list looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  16. We have some of the same on our lists. It's gonna be a good couple of months!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Masque of the Red Death is my number one, too! We have a few of the same. And I have quite a few of the sequels on my list, too. But Dreamless is sooo good! You have GOT to read it! :)

    I can't believe I forgot to add Of Poseidon!

    Amazing choices, Daisy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Some great choices there! :)

  20. I'm so, so excited for Bitterblue! I've also been hearing really great things about Grave Mercy.

    ReplyDelete
  21. SO excited about Bitterblue too! Grave Mercy is up next for me and I completely agree..NUNS that are assassins=I'm in! Here's our Top 10 this week! Happy Reading!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I can't explain how much I can't wait to read Bitterblue. I've put both it and Fire on hold at my library. Best. Books. Ever.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yea! I'm not the only one who still hasn't read Fire!! I am going to bc I want to read Bitterblue so much! :) Great list, I hope you get to read them all :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I can't wait to read Shadow and Bone!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm looking forward to Bitterblue too! I really enjoyed Graceling, and liked Fire well enough, so I hope Cashore continues to build her momentum.

  26. I'm really looking forward to Struck as well! Great choices! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm going to have to check some of these out! I haven't read any from your list but a lot of them sound good :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. BITTERBLUE!!! AHHHH, that's #1 on my Spring TBR list. :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's a great sounding list! I can't wait to read Of Poseidon as well since I love mermaids also, but I haven't gotten my hands on it yet, so it isn't on my list for the spring, maybe summer tho!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Grave Mercy is so so SO good. Definitely one of my top books of the year so far!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great picks! The Spring TBR was so hard for me to narrow down! I just looked at the Harper, Random House, Penguin, and Macmillan catalogs for Fall and I don't want to even think about narrowing down THAT list! So many great books this year! I read Black Heart a couple of weeks ago and if you think the first two books were THE awesome, just wait! I'm so sad that the series is over, but the end was great! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Happy Reading!

    Enjoy and happy Spring!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  39. Very nice list! All the books on your list, are also on my paper list. I've tried to find 10 books:

  59. This is my first Top Ten Tuesday experience. I loved this weeks list. Spring is finally here and I can't wait to be able to sit outside in the nice weather and read. Here's my list https://sites.google.com/site/bookblogeannucci/top-ten-tuesday

    ReplyDelete
  60. Brilliant selection of books. I too am looking forward to Black Heart coming out :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Most of the books you listed I either hadn't yet looked into or had not really known of except for Breath of Eyre. Fortunately (or unfortunately), these are almost all added onto my TBR list. There are just so many potentially great books to be read! Great list!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  70. I really shouldn't be thinking about getting any more new books as i already have so many to be read, but there are at least a couple on your list that really pique my interest, especially the one about nuns who are assassins!

    ReplyDelete
  71. So many good books coming out this Spring! I need more time to read them! I am so excited to read Grave Mercy, it sounds right up my alley. Also with you on Bitterblue, I LOVED Graceling and Fire is sitting on my shelf waiting to be picked up right now (hopefully before May 1st!) Thanks for the great list and some new books to look forward to!
