Top Ten Tuesday #15

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's topic is the top ten books at the TOP of my Spring TBR list.

The TOP Ten Books of My Spring TBR List
  • The Elite by Kiera Cass -  I loved The Selection, and I cannot wait to see what happens to America next!
  • Scarlet by Marissa Meyer -  A fairy-tale retelling and the sequel to Cinder? I just got this from Amazon, and I'm so psyched to read it.
  • The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter -  I'm actually really surprised at my self-control with this book, because after the crazy cliffhanger of the second book, you'd think I would have put aside everything to read this right away. 
  • Pantomime by Laura Lam -  Also got this from Amazon recently, and it looks interesting.  Plus, the cover intrigues me.
  • Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi -  Another book from Amazon that is still waiting to be read.  I've heard tons of awesome things about this series from other bloggers, so I'm looking forward to reading it for myself.
  • Taken by Erin Bowman -  This book's premise not only sounds awesome, but it's also garnered a lot of attention and interest from other book bloggers, which is how I heard about it.  (I'm so jealous of all you who got ARCs!)
  • Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger -  A mythology retelling about wind spirits?  Sign me up.  I love mythology retellings, especially when the stories focus on the lesser known myths.
  • Awaken by Meg Cabot -  It's the final book in the trilogy, and I'm super excited for it!  I love almost all Hades/Persephone stories, and while the first book wasn't my favorite, the story definitely improved with the second book. So if Cabot follows that pattern, Awaken should be amazing.
  • Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson -  This book really intrigues me because it's a retelling of the Bluebeard story.  I'm hoping that there's some fun new twists to his legend.  Can't wait!
  • Son of Sobek by Rick Riordan -  And now to let out a fangirl squeee!  I love Riordan; I have yet to read anything of his that I didn't love.  And both his Percy Jackson series and Kane Chronicles were amazing.  I kept hoping that somewhere in the books they would do a crossover, especially since they kept hinting at the Olympians' existence during the Kane Chronicles.  And it seems Riordan heard his fans' wishes because now he's written Son of Sobeck, an official crossover that has Carter Kane and Percy Jackson teaming up.  SQUEEEE!


  1. First I've heard of the new series by Riordan. Thanks for letting us all know!

    Here's my list of books I can't wait to read this spring!

  2. Awesome list! I really want to read The Elite as well. The Selection was awesome. I love the covers of the books, those dresses are beautiful.

  5. Fab list! Scarlet sounds great, and Taken also caught my eye. Happy spring reading :)

  6. Oh yeah, Scarlet is amazing! I love the approach to writing a series by focusing each book on a different fairytale, but also including the characters from the other books. Kind of like companion novels, but more closely connected. Marissa Meyer is just awesome!

    Happy Spring Reading :)

  7. I am fangirl screaming with you! I didn't know Riordan was going to do something like that! And I also want to read The Elite, Goddess Inheritance, Taken, and Let the Sky Fall. Great list!

  8. Scarlet is SO good! I'm also super excited about Taken and Strands of Bronze and Gold. And I really need to read Under the Never Sky! I just finished Book 4 in the Percy Jackson series and am looking forward to reading Riordans' other series so yay for a new book! :) Great list.
