Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List

It's Tuesday and that means it's Top Ten day over at The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic? Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR List! I actually made two Top Ten lists, one here and one over at Great Books for Kids and Teens. I probably won't manage to read all 20 this spring, but it gives me something to shoot for! These were easy lists to make because I have soooo many books waiting to be read on TBR shelves, in piles, and in baskets!

Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR List:
  • The Dream by Harry Bernstein, sequel to his first memoir, The Invisible Wall, which I loved.
  • Blog Inc. by Joy Deangdeelert Cho, a Christmas gift (if I ever find time to work on my blogs!)
  • The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker, a novel I am dying to read!
  • Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, a leftover from my 2012 TBR list.
  • The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, a book I have wanted to read for ages and perfect for my Books I Should Have Read Challenge.
  • The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Agawa, another good one for the Books I Should Have Read Challenge.
  • In the Woods by Tana French, because my husband loved it.
  • The Yokota Officer's Club by Sara Bird, for my neighborhood book group in April.
  • American Pastoral by Philip Roth, for my neighborhood book group in May - and will also count toward my Books I Should Have Read Challenge.
  • The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom, for my other book group.
What are you looking forward to reading this spring?


  1. Blog Inc is on my TBR list too, but I haven't purchased it yet!

  2. I want to read Gone Gil, too. A Handmaids Tale is a perfect discussion book, so I hope you haven someone to talk with after you read it.

  3. American Pastoral is excellent, but not at all light reading. But of course nobody has ever suggested that Philip Roth writes light books. I need to read the Handmaid's Tale as well.

  4. Interesting list. I've read Gone Girl, which I loved, and The Kitchen House, which I did not love. I may have to check out a few of the others here.
