March 17: Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List.

These are books published just before or during the early part of Spring, which I will, I hope read during the Spring months.

court of thorns

1. A Court of Thrones and Roses; Sarah J. Maas. The first book by an author I have otherwise enjoyed, about a woman who kills a wolf, and a faerie demands retribution for it.

A Darker Shade final for Irene

2. Darker Shade of Magic; V.E. Schwab. Three parallel versions of London, a smuggler/ambassador, and an accidental crime.

dark side of road

3. Dark Side of the Road; Simon R Green. A supernatural mystery, an a killer investigating a murder he didn’t commit.

end of days2

4. End of Days; Susan Ee. The last book in a series with angels and an apocalypse, and the first was a mix of wonderful and terrifying, I want to read the second two together.

karen memory

5. Karen Memory; Elizabeth Bear. A steampunk jack-the-ripper story, with a strong female lead.

pocket apocalypse

6. Pocket Apocalypse; Seanan McGuire. Alexander, member of the cryptozoologist family, has fled some pointed questions from his girlfriend–all the way to Australia. Unfortunately, there’s werewolves in Australia, and they would prefer to be the only species around.


7. Prudence; Gail Carriger. The daughter of preternatural and a werewolf, Prudence has an unusual upbringing and it won’t be surprising she’ll have an unusual adventure, too.

royal wedding

8. Royal Wedding; Meg Cabot. A continuation of a series I loved in my teens–the princess finally grown up and getting married.

smek for president

9. Smek for President; Adam Rex. A sequel to the The True Meaning of Smekday, a story about a very strange alien invasion.

wicked will rise

10. The Wicked Will Rise; Danielle Paige. Another sequel, about an evil Dorothy, and the girl who must kill her.

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    STOP IT. I had no idea Cabot was coming out with a new Princess book! I loved those growing up…definitely adding it to my TBR shelf.

  2. So many good picks on this list. Court of Thorns and Roses would definitely be on mine too.

    A very good list – I was wondering what you’d have on here. I really can’t wait to get to the Maas.
