My Spring (and probably Summer) TBR

As of now, I’ve just wrapped up Ever and The Hate U Give (which BLEW. MY. MIND.) and I’m now starting on my next book. Every single book on my Spring TBR is physically sitting on my bookshelf staring me in the face every single day and I’ve decided I need to remedy that.

I’m going to post these in the order that I (hopefully) read them. I know for sure that I am taking The Woman in Cabin 10 with me on my cruise at the beginning of April because honestly who doesn’t want to read a murder mystery about a woman murdered on a cruise ship while actually being on a cruise ship?!

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern- My sister Rachel recommended this one years ago and I still haven’t gotten around to it. Therefore, it’s very first on my list.

The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson- Funnily enough, this was gifted to me by Rachel for my birthday this year, so the top two books on my list go to her, haha. It looks really good though!

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware- This book has been floating around my peripheral book awareness for a while but the bookstore was having a buy two, get one sale and this was one of the options so I snapped it up. As mentioned before, I plan to read this on my cruise in a couple of weeks.

The Martian by Andy Weir-This may actually be read before the cruise because it’s planned to be the audiobook we listen to on our road trip down to New Orleans (where our cruise leaves from). However, if it doesn’t end up being chosen, I will bring the paperback along with me and read it on the ship as well.

The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood-I love a good Margaret Atwood novel and can’t wait to dive into this one.

Every Day by David Levithan-This is one of my 2018 Book Challenge books and I’m not entirely sure when the movie comes out but I want to really try to watch it before that happens.

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman-Also a book challenge book this year, but a book that has been on my reading list for years. It’s time to jump on that. I love Pratchett, I love Gaiman, and I love Tennant, who is a lead in the newest series based on this book. I really doubt I can go wrong.

In The Woods by Tana French- Yet another Book Challenge book, haha. I grabbed this one when I grabbed The Woman in Cabin 10 and I’m excited to see how it goes.

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty- This was recommended to me by a close friend a couple of years ago and I picked it up somewhere along the way. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this author, so I have high hopes for it!

Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple- Truth time-My mum gave this book to me four years ago insisting I read it and I took it, tossed it on my TBR pile and haven’t looked at it since. That’s not fair to my dear mama who has pretty great taste in books most of the time, so I really need to move this up the list (even if it’s not the top of the list).

I’d love to see your guys’ TBR lists! Let me know what’s at the top!

Happy Reading!

    The Night Circus is also on my list of books to read soon, as is Good Omens which was recommended to me earlier this year, even though I’m not a Pratchett fan and Gaiman is always hit or miss with me, so I’m unlikely to get to it this spring.

      I just started Night Circus last night and haven’t gotten very far, unfortunately. However, by random twist of fate, when I put my headphones in, Pandora was still on my twinkle twinkle little rockstar channel that I use to lull my children into calm (it’s modern music set into lullabies) and it paired perfectly as background music for listening to the book. So if you listen to music while reading, which is what I do at the gym as an extra ward against social interaction, it’s a great channel to try out.

      I did attempt the audiobook of Good Omens while working on the house this weekend, but it was too in depth for me to be able to multi task while listening so it will definitely be one I need to read physically.

    You should read Catherine Ryan Howard – Distress Signals. Another thriller / mystery set on a cruise ship. I found the book compelling and was one of my favourite reads a few years ago.
