Happy Top Ten
Tuesday Wednesday, everyone! Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Today I’m telling you about books on my spring TBR. Not books I promise to read (because how often does that actually work out?) but books the I WANT to read and hope that I have the time and opportunity to read 🙂
The Family Next Door has been allllll over Goodreads and it is getting rave reviews! The description sounds like Desperate Housewives meets Big Little Lies, which hellooo?! I’m not NOT going to read that. I love some housewifey drama!
All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin is out on June 26th and guess who got a NetGalley ARC? THIS GIRL. I have read all but one of Giffin’s books and I’ve really liked them all so I was SO happy (and surprised) when I got approved for the ARC.
How To Walk Away by Katherine Center is out May 15 but I got lucky and won an ARC in a Goodreads giveaway! Center’s Happiness For Beginners is one of my all time favorite books, one I would read a second time-and I don’t ever re-read books! I’m looking forward to this one!
Campaign Widows by Aimee Agresti is out May 22. I got an advanced copy through NetGalley, simply because of this cover! Plus, I love books about unlikely women friendships! Goodreads calls this “Sex and the City meets West Wing”..say no more!
Dragonfly In Amber is the second book in the Outlander series. YALL. I have an unhealthy obsession with Outlander and everything it entails. The books are intimidating but once you dive in, the pages FLY by and you can’t devour it fast enough! I ordered book 2 before I was halfway through book 1!
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman is a debut novel that seems to have gained quite a fanbase in a short time. Based around a character with limited social skills and preferring solitude, it seems readers either love the book or hate it. Goodreads reviews have compared Eleanor to A Man Called Ove, which I didn’t love, but also didn’t hate. Here’s to hoping I love it since I own it!
The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory sounds like the perfect quirky and carefree book we all crave from time to time! A couple of strangers stranded in an elevator agree to go to an ex’s wedding together and BAM! Across the country, they can’t stop thinking about each other. Sign me up!
Other People’s Houses by Abbi Waxman is out April 3 (but if you’re a Book of the Month member, you got early access! woop woop!) and the lovely people at Berkley sent me TWO early copies – maybe a giveaway soon?! – so I plan to bump it up on my TBR asap. I’ve heard its also hilarious, but honestly, with the Desperate Housewife-y sounding drama, I would have read this one either way.
The Queen of Hearts by Kimmery Martin is a debut novel, reminding readers of Grey’s Anatomy – which I happen to be obsessed with – but also, that cover..I just need this beauty on my shelf. Funny enough, we had a giveaway for books on our TBR recently and Queen of Hearts was my pick and I STILL haven’t gotten to read it yet!
Still Me by Jojo Moyes is the third book in the Me Before You series. If you’ve been living under a rock or just recently learned to read, you’re one of the few who haven’t read Me Before You and/or After You. Personally, I was wrecked and ugly cried for days after the first book..then devoured every book Moyes has written. You could say I’m a fan!
Are any of these gems on your spring TBR? Or maybe you’ve already gotten to them! Let me know what you think in the comments! 🙂
