Ten Books On My Spring TBR

toptentuesday2Goooooood morninnnng, hope you’re well readers. It’s Tuesday and it’s getting towards Spring time! *YAAAAAY.* Now, we all love a TBR list and I love nosing through people’s TBR lists and adding to my own. Now, I must admit  my rate of actually reading my TBR lists is about 25% but whenever I’m like – I need something to read I know where to come to find it.

H Is for Hawk Hardcover by Helen Macdonald

This came to my attention when it won The Costa Book of the Year and I kept saying to myself I would get it read but I’m still yet to check this out. Feeling like this Spring is the time to finally sit down and read.

Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver

I love stories about sisters but I read so few of them – this popped up on my suggested books to read on Amazon and it sounds so intriguing. Two sister go missing and there’s a boy involved (there normally is when there’s trouble around.) but, I’m excited to see how good this really is!

The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B by Teresa Toten

Adam Spencer Ross meets Robyn Plummer in his Young Adult OCD Support Group and is desperately drawn to her. She, however has just been released from a residential psychiatric program—the kind for the worst, most difficult-to-cure cases; the kind that Adam and his fellow support group members will do anything to avoid joining. We see as they Adam tries save Robyn – and she if love will blossom. *SOUNDS AMAZING!*

Mosquitoland by David Arnold

Apparently going for a little bit of a YA binge but recently it’s been my book type of choice. This is the story of Mim Malon to decides, after the breakdown of her family to travel with the Dad and Step-mum to Ohio. Mim decides she’s not to happy with that and decides to travel to her real mother. This book follows the journey she makes, the people she meets etc. It just looks reaaaaaly good.

A Doubter’s Almanac: A Novel by Ethan Canin

I spotted this cover on Goodreads I think and thought that cover looooooooks amazing. It follows the life of a mathematical genius, Milo Andret, and the costs his particular and rare talent exacts from him and those who love him. Sounds mesmerising to be honest.

The Ex by Alafair Burke

Widower Jack Harris has resisted the dating scene ever since the shooting of his wife Molly by a fifteen-year-old boy three years ago. An early morning run along the Hudson River changes that when he spots a woman in last night’s party dress, barefoot, enjoying a champagne picnic alone, reading his favorite novel. Everything about her reminds him of what he used to have with Molly. Eager to help Jack find love again, his best friend posts a message on a popular website after he mentions the encounter. Days later, that same beautiful stranger responds and invites Jack to meet her in person at the waterfront. That’s when Jack’s world falls apart

That sounds incredible doesn’t it?!?!?!!?!?! *scream face.* 

Pax by Sara Pennypacker

Needed to include a children’s book didn’t I really. I always think Spring is the best time for children’s books, just so many exciting stories. This follows the life of Peter and Pax who are separated and their adventures on being reunited. (Pictures look gorgeous toooo)

A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy by Sue Klebold

On April 20, 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold walked into Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. Over the course of minutes, they would kill twelve students and a teacher and wound twenty-four others before taking their own lives.
 
For the last sixteen years, Sue Klebold, Dylan’s mother, has lived with the indescribable grief and shame of that day. How could her child, the promising young man she had loved and raised, be responsible for such horror? And how, as his mother, had she not known something was wrong? Were there subtle signs she had missed? What, if anything, could she have done differently?

^ I don’t know really what to say this is going to be one of the most heartbreaking reads I think I will have ever read. I think this will be such a saddening read but one that will hopefully share this important story.

 

The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth

This sounds like a stunning book very much a romance maybe like Elizabeth’s Missing in terms of style which I adored. I have been looking for a book like Elizabeth’s Missing and I’m hoping this is it!

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee

I STILL HAVEN’T READ THIS – this spring I will. Promise.

So there we go, my SPRING TO BE READ BOOK 2K16! If you’ve read any of these please let me know which to read first, or if they’re brilliant or not so brilliant or tweet me @littlebookblog! 😀

    The problem with reading awesome lists like yours is that I tend to go a little crazy and start adding to my own list. I have to get Vanishing Girls, The Ex and A Mother’s Reckoning. They sound like really interesting reads. I have To Kill a Mocking Bird on my list then I can read the second book by Harper Lee.

    Thanks for sharing. Here is my TTT:https://dwgitau.wordpress.com/2016/03/15/top-ten-tuesday/

      Definitely read To Kill a Mockingbird! I only read it this year and it is fantastic 😀

      I will make sure I check out your list 😀

    A storming selection, Lizzie:). I have also promised myself that I’ll catch up with the Harper Lee book, having heard so much about it… And H is for Hawk has also caught my eye. Good luck with the reading and I hope you enjoy them all!

    Pax is on my TTT list, too! Yay! I just finished The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B. I hope you enjoy it – I definitely did. I just bought Vanishing Girls last week. I love sister books, too. (Did you read We Are the Goldens by Dana Reinhardt?)

      I need to get it read!! 🙂 I am so excited to read it also I haven’t!! IS it worth a read?

      • March 17, 2016 / 8:18 pm

        I really liked it – the struggle in the sister-relationship felt so realistic to me. It has an unconventional ending, so I’ve heard some people take issue with that. But I recommend it anyway! 🙂

        • March 21, 2016 / 5:39 pm

          Ohhhhh I’m so excited! ^pushes it to the top of my TBR list!
