Top Ten Tuesdays is a meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish that features a new topic each week where we have to put down our top ten of it.
This week we are talking about books that are priority on our spring 2014 reading list
-- old and new!
~ books 1 & 2 in the Throne of Glass series
I know, I know! I haven't read these books yet. I have both sitting in my bookcase just waiting to be read and I promise they will both be read before this summer comes. Also because the third installment, Heir of Fire is coming out this Sept. 2014!!
2.) Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress by Marissa Meyer
~ from The Lunar Chronicles
I've been told by so many fellow book lovers that I must read this series. I've been interested in reading these books for quite some time now. I mean Cinder has been on my TBR list ever since I signed up with Goodreads back in April 2012. Book 1, Cinder, I just recently bought and is sitting on my nightstand waiting to be read. Soon very very soon!!
3.) Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes
~ book 2 in the Falling Kingdoms series
This is book 2 in the Falling Kingdoms series. I've read book 1, Falling Kingdoms, and fell in complete love with it that I rush out immediately and bough this book. I haven't read it yet b/c I'm trying to wait til book 3, Gathering Darkness, comes out in December 2014. Yea, Well I can not take it anymore! I have got to read this, like, NOW! lol
4.) The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski
~ book 1 in the Winner's Trilogy
I just checked this one out from the library so it's definitely getting crossed off the TBR list this week!
I'm excited to see what all the buzz is about :)
5.) Death Sworn by Leah Cypress
~ book 1 in the Death Sworn Series
This one just came out March 4th. When waiting for the book, I thought the release date would never get here!!! Now it's out and waiting for me to read it. I've read some awesome reviews on this one! A book with a kick ass heroine, assassins, magic and more! OH YEA!! Your going down book. I can't wait to mark you off THE LIST!!!!
6.) The Ring & the Crown by Melissa de la Cruz
Release Date: April 1st 2014
An irresistible story that I can not wait to read! The cover is amazing and reading the reviews just makes me anticipate this book even more.
7.) The Goblin Emperor by Kathrine Addison
Release Date: April 1st 2014
April Fool's Day!!! No really, it comes out on April fool's day! LOL!! Every review I've read so far on this book has given a 4 & 5 stars which makes me excited. A book with Goblins/half goblin rulers! Intriguing for sure. Fantasy and Science Fiction with a bit of Steampunk......Let's read it y'all!!
8.) Days of Blood & Starlight and Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor
~ books 2 & 3 in the Daughter of Smoke & Bone series
I read Daughter of Smoke & Bone last month and absolutely adored it! Immediately bought book 2 in hardback, then a week later won the paperback in a giveaway WOOHOO!! I haven't read it because I'm trying to wait til book 3 Dreams of G&M comes out April 8th, which is right around the corner :) So I will be reading both books very soon.
9.) Siege and Storm & Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
~ books 1 & 2 of the Grisha Trilogy
I've already read Shadow and Bone earlier this year and wanted to wait til it gets closer to Ruin and Rising's release date (June 17th) to read book two, Siege and Storm. Shadow and Bone was an okay book for me, I mean, I enjoyed it, but I'm hoping Siege and Storm is more exciting for me. Fellow readers have told me that I will not be let down. FINGERS CROSSED!!!
10.) Half A King by Joe Abercrombie
Release Date: July 8th 2014
I've just recently added this one to my TBR list. A book highly recommended by the awesome writer, Patrick Rothfuss, so you know if he give this a great review and recommends readers to read it. That's exactly what I'm going to do, just as soon as it comes out!!
Can't wait to see what's on y'alls Spring Cleaning TBR lists. Hopefully while I'm stopping by other Top Ten Tuesday's, I don't get carried away by adding more books to my list. I know I will! Ha ha.......
♥ BIG hugs and Lots of Love ♥
