TTT #279 | Books on My Spring 2023 To-Read List Part 1

We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is bookish people I’d like to meet. With these posts I personally like talking about books, so I’m going to do the part 1 for next week’s topic: Books on My Spring 2023 To-Read List. Let’s talk about ten books I want to read this Spring!

In the Lives of Puppets – TJ Klune

I’ve only read 3 books by TJ Klune, but he’s become an auto-buy/read author. In the Lives of Puppets is a book I’m lucky to have an eARC of and actually think I’ll be reading this one either in March or the beginning of April. My review of this Pinocchio retelling will definitely be up before release day. I wonder if this book will make me cry like his other books have, haha.

The Neighbor Favor – Kristina Forest

As a fan of book that have characters who love or write books I needed this on my TBR. Our main character wants to be an editor of children’s books and she doesn’t know her neighbor is actually her favorite fantasy author. The Neighbor Favor sounds like a book I’m going to love.

Fourth Wing – Rebecca Yarros

One of my favorite authors is giving fantasy a chance! Fourth Wing is set in the brutal world of a war college for dragon riders. I honestly don’t think I’ve read a book like this, so I can’t wait. Unfortunately, we have to wait until the beginning of May, but I will be reading it really soon after it releases.

Never Ever Getting Back Together – Sophie Gonzales

After reading Only Mostly Devastated and knowing I’ll love anything Sophie writes I still haven’t gotten around to reading her other two books. Never Ever Getting Back Together is the most recent one, but it sounds right up my alley. Our main character participates in a second chance reality show with her ex something unexpected happens. She ends up falling for one of the other contestants. I need to read this soon!

Alone With You in the Ether – Olivie Blake

I recently read The Atlas Six and ended up loving it! Since Alone With You in the Ether has released I’ve read a lot of positive reviews and I’m intrigued. This line in the synopsis is what really caught my attention: “Alone with You in the Ether explores what it means to be unwell, and how to face the fractures of yourself and still love as if you’re not broken.” Sounds like my kind of story.

Solitaire – Alice Oseman

Heartstopper is a series I love and when I found out Solitaire was about Tori (Charlie’s sister) I knew I needed to read it, because I really like her as a character. What I didn’t know was that this was actually Alice Oseman’s first book. This author deals with serious subjects in a great way and I’m excited to read more about Tori and see characters I love in Heartstopper.

Charm – Tracy Wolff

So far I’ve read all of the books in the Crave series and I’m so invested now that I need to continue. Charm released last November and I’m surprised I haven’t picked it up already. I may just have to go and order it after I finish this post. I’ve been wanting the story of Grace and Hudson when she was stone for four months.

Beartown – Fredrik Backman

Beartown is a book I keep hearing about and people seem to love this trilogy. I also believe it has a TV show or movie adaptation. This story takes place in a small town, has a hockey team, and I believe something horrible happens to a girl. I know this sounds really vague, but that’s all I have heard about this one so far.

Five Survive – Holly Jackson

Even though I should be putting the final book in the A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder series on here I really want to read Five Survive. “Eight hours, six friends, one sniper” is definitely what caught my attention. Six friends are on a RV road trip when a sniper seems to be after one of them.

Take a Hint, Dani Brown – Talia Hibbert

I read Get a Life, Chloe Brown at the end op December 2019. Take a Hint, Dani Brown released six months later and I was determined to read it when it released, but that still hasn’t happened. People have loved the final two books in the trilogy and I finally need to get them read.

  1. Yarros’s book is on my TBR as well because I love her writing. Normally, I wouldn’t read a fantasy with dragons but with her writing I will. And you’re going to LOVE Beartown. It starts off a little slow but packs a big punch.
