Last week we told you that we were nominated for Best Meme and thanks to you guys -- we made the final run-off vote! You can now vote for Top Ten Tuesday in the finals with one click.
YAY! You can't really tell because of all the snow and nasty weather yet, but SPRING IS ALMOST HERE! I love Spring, it means sunshine, cute baby animals, cute new spring/summer clothes, new shoes and just generally a better time for someone who's ALWAYS cold.
Oh, and it always means new and exciting book releases ;)
This week's Top Ten Tuesday is all about the books on your Spring TBR list, either books you're meaning to read or new releases. I'm gonna go with the books I'm excited for releasing between March 20th and June 20th 2013!
Tarnish by Katherine Longshore: because OMG, I LOVED Gilt and cannot wait to get my hands on this one! And this one revolves around Anne Boleyn! I am slightly obsessed with Anne Boleyn.
Dance of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin: because let's be honest, Dance of the Red Death was insanely awesome and I still can't listen to We Are Young by Fun. without thinking of this book.
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo: Shadow and Bone was one of my favourite reads of 2012 and I am DYING to read Siege and Storm and find out what happens next for Aline, Mal and the Darkling (can you say perfect villain?)!
Rise by Anna Carey: the ending of Once nearly killed me! This book needs to be in my hands so I can find out how it'll all end and I'm desperately hoping for some form of happy in the ending!
The OMG FINALLY A NEW BOOK BY THIS AUTHOR
And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini: because I absolutely LOVED A Thousand Splendid Suns and I don't care what this amazing author writes about next, I will READ IT!
The Paranormal/Dystopian Fix
Linked by Imogen Howson: a lost twin sister and an intense connection AND running from the government? OF COURSE I'M IN!
Taken by Erin Bowman: I keep mentioning this book in TTT's, but I'm just fascinated by a world in which boys vanish on their 18th birthday!
The Perfect Spring Cute Contemporaries
The Summer I Became A Nerd by Leah Rae Miller: I love that it's about the main character giving in to her inner nerd :)
Thinking of You by Jill Mansell: because seriously, it's Jill Mansell and I LOVE her and her books always make me smile!
How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer: I love the title and it's about an internship at a theme park and it just sounds SO CUTE!
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt: I ADORE Lindsey Leavitt's Princess For Hire series and this I've heard great things about this one, not in the least from our very own Jamie :)
So that's my list, any you're excited for as well? Anything I should add to my TBR list? Let me know!
I have The Summer I Became a Nerd on my list too! :) My TTT list: http://aliceinreaderland.com/2013/03/11/spring-2013-tbr-list/ReplyDelete
Alice @ Alice in Readerland
The Summer I Became A Nerd sounds kind of adorable, and I think you'll LOVE Going Vintage! It's light and cute. Thanks for sharing your list!ReplyDelete
Your list is perfect! Going Vintage would have totally been on my list, but I read it yesterday, hah! And MAN I can't wait for Tarnish! And Linked and Taken! I plan to read all of these, honestly.ReplyDelete
Siege and Storm is on my tbr list too though I decide to opt it out of my list because I mentioned it too much. Taken is also on mine. Hooray for spring! :)ReplyDelete
I know it isn't actually that far off but March 20th seems so far away, especially for sequels!ReplyDelete
Great list! Several of these titles are on my own list! :)ReplyDelete
I didn't like Shadow and Bone, but maybe... I can read Siege and Storm and see if it gets better :)ReplyDelete
Yay for sunshine!
I enjoyed Taken. From the blurb, I knew the disappearances had to be either something supernatural or...not. Once that was determined, I was continually surprised, and I'm looking forward to the sequel.ReplyDelete
Stephanie (Go Flash Go) @ Read, Rinse, Repeat
Here's my Top Ten
Taken sounds fascinating - kind of like Gone by Michael Grant, maybe? (Although I confess I've read neither of those...yet at least!)ReplyDelete
Spring(/Autumn in Australia) seems like a fantastic season for new books!
Fab list! We have Zoe in common, and I agree Going Vintage sounds very cute. Lots of great spring titles to look forward to :)ReplyDelete
Love your list!! So many books that I want to read!ReplyDelete
I'm also excited for Tarnish, though who knows when I'll get to read it!ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh! I TOTALLY want to read Taken! For some reason I had it in my head that it was releasing in September. No clue why!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to read Taken, sounds like such a great story! Great list!ReplyDelete
OMG I had no idea Khaled Housseini had a new book out! Thanks for letting me know! I, too, loved both of his prior books so much.ReplyDelete
Here's my TTT post for this week.
So many good books on that list!! I decided to go for books that I already own because let's face it, much more likely to read them that way. This is only my second Top Ten week but I love this meme :) Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Megan @ Megz Madd Readz (My Top Ten)
Man, I still need to read Gilt. I guess I can wait and read Gilt & Tarnish back to back now. :-)ReplyDelete
I can't wait for Rise either. I'm so excited to see what will happen!ReplyDelete
Love your list and I hope every book is great :)ReplyDelete
This is my third time participating in this meme and I love it! Such a great way of sharing book titles and getting inspiration for new books to add to your TBR pile :DReplyDelete

I read Taken this past weekend, and I must say that it was a pretty good read, but not what I was expecting. Great list!ReplyDelete
Great list! I love how you split everything up :)ReplyDelete
Oh man, love your list! And the Mountains Echoed - I'm squeeing all over the place for that book. I already preordered mine and cannot wait. I need to read everything else on your list. Oh, and I forgot to put Siege and Storm on my list!ReplyDelete
Cheers to reading all these spring goodies!
So excited for As The Mountains Echoed. It's been years since I read A Thousand Splendid Suns and I've just been waiting and waiting for his next novel.ReplyDelete
Oh, wow, every time I read a TTT list, I add to the TBR pile!ReplyDelete
Ahhh so many good books on here! I hope you get to read them all soon.ReplyDelete
I haven't heard of a few of these, but I do have Taken on my list as well. I cannot wait to read it. I'm sure I'll be looking forward to Rise too, once I take Eve off my bookshelf and actually read it.ReplyDelete
Ashling @ Reading, Writing, & Anything but Arithmetic
I really need to start reading Shadow and Bone!ReplyDelete
I can't wait for Siege and Storm- although I didn't include it on my list (everyone knows I can't wait for it lol). I checked out The Summer I Became a Nerd from your list and it looks interesting. I'm curious to see how this author portrays nerds and whether or not it makes me mad lol.ReplyDelete
Paige @ For the Love of Literature
I really want to read Shadow and Bone, I bought it for my friend for her birthday and she loved it.ReplyDelete
