Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s topic is about one word titles, but that didn’t really interest me today. Today I wanted to talk about my spring TBR. With the start of March just behind us, and watching the trees blossom, it just really feels like spring already. So without further ado, here are 10 books I hope to read over the spring season. Hope you enjoy!
1. Pride by Fred W. McDarrah
More and more I find myself diving into queer history, there’s always so much to learn! So I was excited to see this book at my library and requested it right away.
2. Normal People by Sally Roony
I think I’ve had this book on previous posts, but I still haven’t got around to reading it. This season I definitely will! If only because its due back at the library soon. 😀
3. Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown
I was inspired to read a bunch of books because of Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home. She mentioned so many books that I had never heard of, and this is one of them! I’m excited to see what it’s about.
4. Blessed: A History of the American Prosperity Gospel by Kate Bowler
I am beyond excited to read this book! There is so much about the christianity in america that baffles me and I’m hopeful this will answer some of my questions.
5. The Institute by Stephen King
Yeah, I think this book has been on a list before too. Oh well! I will actually be reading it soon and I’m excited. Looks intriguing.
6. The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin
At this point I’ve completely forgot what this book is about, but I really like the title and I have the audiobook sitting around waiting for me to turn it on. I haven’t listened to an audiobook in awhile so it will be nice to give this a try!
7. Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson
I’m making my way through this series slowly but surely! I’m now on the third book and the world keeps me sucked in every time.
8. The Odyssey by Homer
Both this book and Ulysses (which I plan to read after this) are also books that I was inspired to read because of Bechdel’s Fun Home. I tried to read Ulysses at a home age and didn’t really get it, but I also hadn’t read Homer’s book first. This time I’m going to do things right.
9. Once Upon A Time by Marina Warner
After watching an interview done by Warner for a class I’m taking this term I have kinda become obsessed with her. I the work she’s talked about in regards to fair tales and old wives’ tales and I just have to read some of her actual work not just watch her on youtube.
10. Forms of Enchantment by Marina Warner
So yeah, that’s also the reason I’m reading this book. No further info needed.
What are you reading this spring? Are there any new releases you’re looking forward to?
