Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Spring TBR

TTT-NEW

Yayy, lists! We all love lists, don’t we? I had a look at my Winter TBR and it turned out that I read 3 of the books I named, dnf one and am currently reading 2. 2 others I’m not interested in anymore and another 2 I’ve put on my next TBR list:

Wrath of Empire / Brian McClellan

wrath

I almost feel bad because I haven’t read it yet. This book is high priority once I’m done with my challenge and finished most of the books I started. I am convinced I’ll love this book.

Guards! Guards! / Terry Pratchett

And the second book that was on my Winter TBR already. I am still keen on this Reread, just didn’t get to it. I haven’t finished a lot of books during the last months.

The Traitor Baru Cormorant / Seth Dickinson

baru

I’ve started it and try to finish by the end of this week. If it stays as intriguing, that won’t be a problem.

Black Wolves / Kate Elliott

I’m a bit surprised that I like it so much. It’s a lot of rambling and a big cast of characters and not a lot is happening, but there’s some really cool world-building, the characters are all interesting and there’s some nice scheming & backstabbing going on. I like reading about court politics^^ It’s kind of a Downton Abbey/Soap Opera/Fantasy Epic? πŸ˜€ That’s how I would describe it.

Indexing / Seanan McGuire

I planned to read ‘Down Among the Sticks and Bones’ next, but Nicole from Book-Wyrm-Knits mentioned this series and now I know it’s a kind of fairy tale retelling, I need to give it a try. Sample is already sitting on my Kindle.

The Summer Dragon / Todd Lockwood

Has been on my radar for a long time now. But for some reason it’s not available as an ebook and the book was too expensive, until now. Gotta put an order through on bookdepository soon.

Saga Vol. 6 / Brain K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples

saga vol 6

The only reason for not continuing just yet is that the novels are so damn expensive here… I am not ready to pay almost 30 bucks, thank you. I am going to order it in. Maybe with 7 & 8 as well.

Swamplandia! / Karen Russell

I’ve read the sample a long time ago and remember that I really liked it. No idea why I never picked it up after.. I just thought about it. Maybe now is the time!

The Thousand Names / Django Wexler

the thousand names

After ‘Wrath of Empire’ I want to try some Wexler! People like him.

Skyward / Brandon Sanderson

skyward 1

I am more interested in it than I was when it was announced. Very curious to read a space opera by Sanderson!

  1. I keep forgetting you’re in the other hemisphere. I was all about to go rampage on you for talking about spring when we’re not even into Fall yet and then it dawned on me, “Oh yeah, she’s going into Spring dummy!”.
    It’s a small world after all *sing it with me!*

  2. I see so many good books on this list! Wrath of Empire, The Thousand Names, Traitor Baru, Summer Dragon – all excellent books! I enjoyed Black Wolves too, but it was loooong. And I don’t know when the sequel might be coming out, it feels like I’ve been waiting forever and release date keeps getting pushed back. And I’m definitely going to make time for Skyward!

  3. Indexing is so much fun (and there’s a sequel too). The concept is great, and I loved the way the modern world and the fairy tales intersect. Then again, Seanan McGuire is one of my favorite authors, so it’s no surprise that I loved these books. I keep wanting to dive into Discworld, and I never quite know where to start. One of these days… Anyway, great list! Enjoy your spring reading!

  4. I hope you enjoy Indexing! I really loved the way that whole world worked. Skyward does sound like an interesting book. Maybe I’ll read that one… I’ve been trying to find a Sanderson book that would be a good starting place (though I already read Steelheart and did NOT like it, others have told me that one was not a good example of his work so I’m starting over).

      1. Yeah, I don’t plan on finishing the series because I didn’t enjoy Steelheart. For a long time I planned to not read any more Sanderson because of Steelheart. I’ve changed my mind on that, though, but I’m not sure where to start now.

    1. Exactly. I’ve known about her for ages but never tried any of her books. Lately, I’ve been picking up some of the more popular/famous authors in the Fantasy genre I haven’t tried yet. Like Elizabeth Moon. Or Anne McCaffrey. It’s hit and miss though
