Top Ten Books On My Spring To-Be-Read List

“Top Ten Tuesday” is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!



This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is the Top Ten Books On My Spring To-Be-Read List.

No, you’re not imagining things. All but one of the books I’ve chosen for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday list are, in fact, advanced reader copies that I have yet to read and that are set to be published in the next few months. You see, despite my best intentions to the contrary, there is a slight possibility I may have gone slightly overboard while downloading ARCs on Edelweiss after I found out I was auto-approved for all Harper Teen titles. But you know what? I’m choosing to look at this as a positive. I’ve never once failed to read and review a title provided to me by a publisher or author, and I don’t intend to start now. Hey, who knows? Maybe this will be the first time I complete one of these Top Ten Tuesday ‘to-be-read list’ challenges! There’s a first time for everything, right? I couldn’t possibly be more excited to read each and every one of these titles – My only problem now will be deciding where to start!

As always, these choices are listed in no particular order.

1) Don’t Call Me Baby by Gwendolyn Heasley

2) All Four Stars by Tara Dairman

3) The Museum of Intangible Things by Wendy Wunder

4) To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

5) Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman

6) Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

7) There Will Come A Time by Carrie Arcos

8) Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

9) Summer On The Short Bus by Bethany Crandell

10) Guy In Real Life by Steve Brezenoff

  1. Guy in Real Life sounds great. And I also want to read To all The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

    Good luck reading them all!

  2. This is a great list, Jen! I have several of these books on my radar too. And how adorable is the cover of All Four Stars! I liked Say What You Will pretty well and I’m eager to hear what you think. Too All the Boys sounds so cute. Can’t wait! Happy spring reading πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Lucy! And I couldn’t agree more re: All Four Stars. Tara recently posted the related swag (bookmarks, etc) last night on Twitter and it couldn’t be more adorable. I know the book isn’t set to be published until July 10th but I doubt I’ll be able to wait that long to read it πŸ™‚ The premise reminds me a little of Ratatouille, which has me even more excited to read it.

  3. I can’t believe I forgot Since You’ve Been Gone! I knew that I was missing a major contemporary release, but I couldn’t for the life of me remember. But now I do!! And I’M SO EXCITED.

    Great list!

    Well you’ve just added a bunch of new books to my TBR list. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of some of these books. And they’re all so pretty! Like, genuinely stunning covers, I think that’s half the reason I want to read them.

    • Hooray! I’m so happy I was able to help spread a little love for a few of these lesser-known novels. I know a couple of them (All Four Stars, Summer On The Short Bus, Guy In Real Life, etc) have flown relatively under the radar thus far, but if their synopsis are any indication, they all sound positively delightful πŸ˜€ I hope you’ll have the opportunity to read a few of them, too!

      P.S. You’re definitely not alone in having a weakness for a beautiful book cover! Goodness knows that has led me astray a time or two myself πŸ˜‰

  8. Since You’ve Been Gone is on my list too, I love Morgan Matson!

    ALSO! To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is fantastic, trust you’ll want to hug the book when you are done.

    All Four Stars looks cute, I will have to investigate more of that one.

    Hope you read all of these this spring!

    I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before! Can’t wait to read it! I’ve also got Don’t Call Me Baby on my TBR. I actually haven’t heard of several of these, so I must investigate!

  10. Most of my books this week are ARCs, too…and some of them coming out next month! *hangs head* I have never heard of THE MUSEUM OF INTANGIBLE THINGS before today…and you are the third person to feature it! I love the cover. Instant must! Oh, I almost added SAY WHAT YOU WILL to my list, but I went for LOVE LETTERS TO THE DEAD and SHE IS NOT INVISIBLE instead. Seriously. I dragged out a stack of, like, five or six contemporary novels in my I COVET YOU pile and struggled to pick two for slots 9 and 10! (Not that my list is in any MUST order, lol)

    All Four stars! That book looks darling and I’m looking forward to reading it! Don’t call Me Baby, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Prisoner of Night and Fog, say What You Will, and Guy in Real Life all look good, too! Hope you love all of them! πŸ™‚

  12. Haha, we BOTH have a problem downloading ARCs on Edewleiss. I kind of want to cry looking at the amount I have for next month, eek! Don’t Call Me Baby didn’t make my list but it’s on my e-reader. I reviewed Prisoner of Night & Fog this week — I think you’ll like it Jen! Haha, my #10 pick was Guy In Real Life too!!

  13. Katie says:

    I really can’t wait for All Four Stars! I love any children’s or ya titles that have any relation to baking or cooking, and this one just looks delightful! I also am really excited about Prisoner of Night and Fog. This is one I will have to get as soon as it’s released!

    Ahh! Prisoner of Night and Fog and Say What You Will! These both look so good! πŸ˜€ I haven’t heard of a lot of books that you’ve added to this list, but I’m definitely adding them to my TBR list now! Thanks for sharing Jen! xD

    Yay! I am so happy someone else wants to read Say What You Will – it looks quite good :] All Four Stars looks adorable, and Prisoner of Night and Fog has me intrigued as well.

    Your list has some of my favorite books of the year! I adored All Four Stars, The Museum of Intangible Things ,To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Prisoner of Night and Fog (seriously amazing), Say What you Will and Summer on the Short Bus (both incredible books about characters with disabilities, but that isn’t the whole focus of the book). You are going to have a great reading season!
