Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR List

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke & The Bookish. Each week they host a different top ten topic.


My Spring TBR List

I've decided to pick only 2014 releases for the list.



Dorothy Must Die makes the list because I love the whole idea of this book. It will show Dorothy as a baddie and I can't wait for that. Ever since reading Wicked, I am more than happy to read anything that portrays Dorothy as evil because I clearly haven't forgiven her for what she did to Elphaba.
The Murder Complex is one that I have as an eARC and will definitely be reading it this spring. I was happy to have auto-approval for this because the cover alone sold this book to me. I've seen some great reviews for it so I am hopeful that I will love it just as much. It's about teenage assassins, how can I not love it?
After the End is another one that I have and know that I will definitely be reading. I have read other books by the author and wasn't the biggest fan but I like the sound of this. It seems a lot like the movie The Village, where they don't realise what is outside of their home.
Open Road Summer is one that I want because I fell in love with the cover and it looks like a sweet read. It's the story of a girl who goes on tour with her best friend, who just happens to be a country superstar. Of course along the way she might just fall in love with the opening act of the tour. This looks like a sweet contemporary and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
Love Letters to the Dead is a book that I can't wait to get my hands on. Ever since reading the blurb I have been eagerly awaiting this book. It's about Laurel, a girl who begins to write letters to people who are already dead. Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, the list goes on and on. She can tell them all the things she can't express to anyone else. I can't wait for this, I feel it's going to make me cry.
 To All The Boys I've Loved Before is one that I want because it is written by Jenny Han and I love her. She gave me the wonderful Summer series and I can't wait to read this next book. It tells the story of Lara Jean who never admitted her crushes out loud and instead wrote each boy a letter - that she never sent. But one day she discovers that her letters have been sent out to each of them and now she has to deal with them. I can't wait for this, it sounds so good and I have high expectations, this better not let me down!
The Truth About Alice looks really intriguing and I haven't seen any reviews yet and I like it that way. I am not sure what to expect from it but I am excited none the less. It's told from the perspective of different characters who all have a reason to spread rumours about Alice. It sounds good and not like anything I have read for a while.
What I Thought Was True is written by Huntley Fitzpatrick who wrote My Life Next Door, which became an instant favourite when I read it last year. I will happily pick up anything she writes from now until the end of time. This is another contemporary romance and I have every confidence that it will be as amazing as My Life Next Door.
We Were Liars was one that I might have screamed a little in delight when I found out I had been accepted for this one. I have seen some really great reviews and can't wait to read this one myself.
The Winner's CurseThat cover! It's absolutely stunning and I have to order this one so it can sit on my bookshelf looking all gorgeous. I also love the sound of the story and the five star reviews I keep seeing are definitely making me want to get my hands on this as soon as possible!

  4. Ohhhh, SO much awesome in this list. I'd love to read ALL of these. Though I'm totally rooting for The Winner's Curse and Dorothy Must Die. I LOVE rewrites, I mean, it's not really a "fairy tale" rewrite, as such...but it still counts as a rewrite, right?

    1. I think it totally counts ;) I can't wait for those two, they are the ones I am the most eager for.

  5. I love Huntley Fitzpatrick books so bad. My Life Next Door was the perfect little romance with a surprising amount of depth. I'm so psyched to read this next one from her!

  11. *gasp* so many great looking books, i also really want to read: Dorothy Must Die, The Murder Complex, After the End, The Truth About Alice and The Winner's Curse.

  12. All your books are on my tbr! I want to read them on. I just got Open Road Summer and that's the one that I want to start first. I've been waiting forever, it seems like. I liked We Were Liars. I won't say anything, because it's best to go into it knowing as little as possible.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  25. Right now, the book I want the most has to be To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han, I can't wait till it comes out!
    The book I would recommend the most is Pivot Point, it was an immediate favorite of mine when I read it back in July last year, and not that many people know about it, so it is my go-to book, when someone asks. :-)
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  28. Choosing what books to pick for the TTT this week was hard! As I look at your list I think, yep, I want to read What I Thought Was True and We Were Liars and The Winner's Curse and that one and that one haha! Thanks for checking out my TTT list! Did you get to listen to the music for free through the ebook or did you pay for the download? I wasn't sure how that worked but I'm excited for these two art forms to cross over each other. :)
