I’ve seen Top Ten Tuesday posts on a few blogs, and thought it looked nifty. So I checked out The Broke and the Bookish, and decided to give it a try.


This week’s post is books on your Spring To-Read list, either older/new releases. These are books I’ll be reading soon, so they’ll be Spring reading.

1.  21st Century Dead; Christopher Golden, et. all. I saw this in a bookstore, narrowly avoided buying it–I chose three bargain books instead–and took note of it instead. I love a good anthology. And Zombies.

2. Eldritch Conspiracy; Cat Adams. Book 5 of a series I’m enjoying, though I saw some less than shining reviews of this one. It’s a fun work of urban fantasy so far as I’ve read, though. Vampires and Sirens, oh my!

3. Etiquette & Espionage; Gail Carriger. I loved Soulless and Alexia, so I have high hopes for this new series. And I’ll try nearly anything Steampunk.

4. True Meaning of Smekday; Adam Rex. This book takes place after the aliens have taken over Earth, now called Smekland. It looks hilarious.

5. Mad Scientists’ Guide to World Domination; John Joseph Adams, ed. Another anthology. How can you pass up a title like that?

6. The Master of Heathcrest Hall; Galen Beckett. The third and final book of a series. I’m not ready for it to be over! The first book had notes of Pride & Prejudice/Jane Eyre with the addition of two different kinds of magic.

7. Paper Valentine; Brenna Yovanoff. Ghosts and secrets… sounds intriguing, right?

8. Pemberley Ranch; Jack Caldwell. Pride & Prejudice in Civil war. Why not?

9. Scarlet; Marissa Meyer. Sequel to Cinder. The first book was amazing, I’m hoping this one will be, too. And I’ve been very patient waiting for it. 🙂

10. Written in Red; Anne Bishop. Saw this one as a ‘you might like’ recommendation, and thought, ‘yes, yes I might.’ Being a blood prophet sounds less than fun, though.

      Following other books lover’s blogs is how I ended up with a TR list in the hundreds. I’ll never run out of something interesting to read, which makes me happy.
      Hope you find something you like!

      I’m so looking forward to getting my hands on that book. 😀
      I just finished reading the Soulless manga, and now have an urge to re-read that series as well.
      Thanks for following!
