The title is self-explanatory, so I’m going to jump straight into the list, but not before I mention that the Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/event run by the The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is ‘Books to be read in Spring’ and even though in India, we don’t really have the concept of ‘spring’ and ‘autumn’ seasons, I’m still going to go ahead and jot down a list.
1. The Raven King by Maggie Steifvater
Finale to The Raven Cycle by Maggie Steifvater, The Raven King has peaked up our expectations of how the series will end and has us fans dying to make it to the release date. Thankfully, it’s just around half a month more, and the wait is over!
2. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
Sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, this book (I hope) will be an epic continuation of the amazing story of ACOTAR. ACOTAR is a fairytale retelling of Beauty and the Beast (I hope I’m not wrong) and though I have no idea what ACOMAF is going to be, I can’t help but be super excited for it!
3. and 4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (and) Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
I’ve been re-reading the Harry Potter series this year, and have completed the first three books. I can’t wait to get on with the series, though I also want to be slow and extend the reading time as much as possible. Of course, no matter how many times I read it, the series NEVER loses its magic; it’s evenrgreen and glorious and oh so wonderful!
5. A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James
This book won the Man Booker 2015, and has been sitting on my shelves for a while but it is just so intimidating. I sometimes pick up the book and go through the pages and the language seems interesting and difficult and scary all at once. But I’ve made up my mind, and I feel like I’ll definitely pick this up this spring. At least, I severely hope so.
Those are the five books I will most surely read this spring. These reads have been planned from ages, and I definitely will go through them all (at the most, I may leave out A Brief History…). The rest of my reads I will decide either by my TBR jar, or according to what my mood suggests. But, here is a tentative list of books I’m thinking of maybe picking up this season :
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell (Re-read)
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab
You by Caroline Kepnes
