Spring Fever: Top Ten Books At The Top Of My TBR

March 11, 2013 Top Ten Tuesday, Young Adult 34

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are counting down the books on our Spring TBR! These are (some of) the books I have my eye on, listed in order of publication date:

1. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare – March 19 Margaret K. McElderry Books. Is this really the end of the Infernal Devices? That was fast!

2. OCD, The Dude, and Me by Lauren Vaughn Roedy – March 21 Dial. I guess I just like quirky books about people that don’t fit in but eventually find their place in the world.

3. If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch – March 26 St. Martin’s Griffin. This contemporary survival story / mystery sounds intense.

4. That Time I Joined the Circus by J.J. Howard – April 1 Scholastic Point. Described as The Night Circus meets Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Circus settings in books are interesting to me, and I like the music tie-in.

5. Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire – April 2 Atria. Can’t help but be curious about Beautiful Disaster from Travis’ perspective.

6. How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer – April 23 Balzer & Bray. Looks cute- it’s described as The Devil Wears Prada set in Disney World.

7. Game. Set. Match. by Jennifer Iacopelli – May 1 Coliloquy. Looking forward to reading this New Adult tennis romance.

8. The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr – May 7 Little, Brown. About a musical prodigy whose career ends prematurely. I’m always drawn to music themed books, and eagerly await this one.

9. If I Should Die by Amy Plum – May 7 Harper Teen. Time to wrap up The Revenants trilogy. 

10. The Language Inside by Holly Thompson – May 14 Delacorte. A multicultural verse novel about identity and post-tsunami Japan.

    I think curious is the best word to describe why I want to check out Walking Disaster too. And I can’t wait to read If I should Die. I just finished the first two Reverants books in the past week and loved them. It shoujld be good to see how everything wraps up for Kate and Vincent.

    i like circus settings, too, so i am definitely going to check out the time i joined the circus. your list also reminds me that i need to start the revenants series and infernal devices. great list, lucy!

  5. Jessica

    I added Walking Disaster for the same reason. I want to see if we get an explanation for the nickname Pidge. LOL! Great TBR list and happy reading!

    I kind of just want to steal your list now, they all look so good! I’m really looking forward to That Time I Joined the Circus for the music tie in too and OCD, the Dude and Me just looks super quirky. I’m definitely going to add The Language Inside to my TBR list now!

  7. Angelica

    I’m very much looking forward to Clockwork Princess and That Time I Joined The Circus and last but not least If I Should Die…fantastic list :D

    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday.

    Have a great week!

    The Night I Joined the Circus is going to make me miss my Aerial Acrobat days SO MUCH. I can’t stand it, and I need to find someplace to take classes again! :) And yes: CLOCKWORK PRINCESS!!!!! :)

  9. Quinn

    I thought that reading Beautiful Disaster was like watching a train wreck – but at the same time I definitely want to read Walking Disaster. No matter what you have to say about Travis, he was a very interesting character, and I do want to know what was going on inside his mind.

    I am so excited for Clockwork Princess, but also totally nervous!!! I don’t know if I will be able to handle it. Yike!

    Happy Spring Reading :)

    I love learning about books that are new to me. In this case, it’s The Language Inside and That Time I Joined the Circus. Both of those look really cool! Thanks for putting them on your list.

  11. Tammy Sparks

    Your books are all different than mine:) I also really want to read If You Find Me, and of course Clockwork Princess. I’ve been seeing Game. Set. Match. all over the place, and I really love the cover. Have fun reading!

  12. Brittany

    Ooooh i hadn’t heard of The Language Inside!! Sounds very interesting :)

    OCD, the Dude and Me and That Time I Joined the Circus are two books I want to read on there.

    Not so sure about Walking Disaster, although I am morbidly curious.. *sigh* haha.

    Great list! :)

    I’m like a robot. All I can focus on is Clockwork Princess…Clockwork Princess…Clockwork Princess… I want it now !!! :)

  18. Rebecca

    If You Find Me looks soo good! I only sort of liked Beautiful Disaster, so I’m debating reading the new one coming up, but I probably will. :D

  19. Sunny

    I hope you know how STINKING HAPPY I am to have looked at your list. I now have more books in my GR TBR pile! Yay! OCD, The Dude, and Me sounds hilarious. How Zoe Made Her Dreams Come (Mostly) True sounds cute as well! I have some similar ones as you :) Unfortunately, I couldn’t even finish If You Find Me.

    Eeek Eeek! That’s my excited girlie sound. I have preordered Walking Disaster and I can hardly stand the wait. I have been reluctant to talk about Beautiful Disaster to my bookophile friends because I don’t know if they’d feel as strongly about it as I did. Sometimes I don’t care about other people’s reactions to books, but this one illicited such strong feelings from me. I think if my friends thought the book was stupid then I would feel like they thought I was stupid. How stupid is that? Ha! Anyway, Travis was such an intriguing character and so well drawn. I was so attracted to him despite the fact that he is the embodiment of everything I wouldn’t want in a relationship (particularly the extreme co-dependency). I relate to how Pidgeon was so against him in the beginning but fell for him anyway. The only thing that bothered me was the neatly tied up ending. It was too fairy tale and gushy sweet for a story that had been so emotionally raw up until that point. I hope being inside Travis’s head is as interesting as it sounds.

    Only one more week until clockwork princess! I can’t wait I’m so excited. I need to read book 2 of the revenants I really liked the first one. THanks for visiting my bloggity blog Rae Gun Ramblings

  22. Candice

    Oh I totally want to read so many of these! Can’t wait to get to Clockwork Princess; I’ve been holding off on reading Clockwork Prince so I can go straight into it! And How Zoe… this sounds so so so so cute! I also need to read Amy Plum’s series so I can be ready for the last one! I have both on my kindle!

  23. Wendy Darling

    CLOCKWORK PRINCESS. I am dying for that!!! Although I know it will kill us. :( Wahh. I am about to start WITH ALL MY SOUL, which I’ve also been looking forward to forever–so many big series are ending this year!

    I really want to hear what you think of IF YOU FIND ME, Lucy–it is intense, and so well-written.Great list–loo forward to your thoughts on them all. :)
