Top Ten Tuesday: Spring To Read Books

Top Ten Tuesdays img by Miss Print

This one is pretty easy because I have had to be very regimented about my reading lately. I even have a checklist in my phone. (Which of course guarantees I don’t want to read any of the relevant books. Alas.) Some of them are being read for super secret reasons so you’ll just have to guess about when/if I’ll talk about them here :)

UPDATE: I realized I wrote this so far in advance that I had read a lot of the books! Yay for new books to add to the list!

  1. The Secret Side of Empty by Maria E. Andreu
  2. Blind by Rachel DeWoskin
  3. The Agency: A Spy in the House by Y. S. Yee
  4. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
  5. Blank Confession by Pete Hautman
  6. Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume
  7. Scat by Carl Hiassen
  8. Struck by Lightning by Chris Colfer
  9. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
  10. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan C. Bradley
  11. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (I’ll be done with this by the time it points but I list it so as to document the fact that it felt like this book would never, ever end.)

So here are the five replacements. (Sadly some of the above are on hold from the library so they are taking FOREVER to get to me.)

  1. Criminal by Terra Elan McVoy (You can’t necessarily tell from the blog but I love Terra and she is partly why I blog every day in April. So excited to finally read this!)
  2. The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp (I am reading this right now and I maintain that the only way it makes sense is if Sutter is a sociopath and murders everyone by the end. There is just no other way this can go.)
  3. The Edge of Falling by Rebecca Serle (I’m due for a fun NY book and Gabrielle Zevin blurbed it.)
  4. The Unbound by Victoria Schwab (Because I loved the first book and need more. Duh.)
  5. Open spot for the sequels I am desperately waiting for but are not out yet. (The One by Kiera Cass–I had preordered but I might wait and read it first in case it makes me want to throw something. Isla and the Happy Ever After by Stephanie Perkins, Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers, The Strange Maid by Tessa Gratton, Bad Luck Girl by Sarah Zettel.)

  1. I LOVE the Flavia de Luce series. If you listen to audiobooks, I highly recommend listening to them. I just finished Grave Mercy (why, oh, why did I wait so long to read this one?) and I have to stop myself from jumping into the next one because I so many other things to read. Soon, though! I also need to read The Elite before The One comes out! Enjoy your spring reading! ~Megan

  2. I saw the trailer for the movie for The Spectacular Now, and had wanted to read it before I watched the dvd, but… it sounds weird now. Is it creepy or are the characters just really unlikable?

    1. Excellent timing Kayla. I just finished this book last night. Spoiler: Sutter doesn’t kill anyone. BUT I do still stand by my reading of him as a sociopath (not intended but he’s just really not likable). The book is okay and the writing is decent but Sutter doesn’t sound like a teen and he’s pretty self-absorbed and terrible. What I did like about the book and find very amusing is that through a certain lens there is a very strong argument to be made that Sutter is, in fact, a Manic Pixie Dream BOY.
