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 Books on My Spring 2023 To-Read List, Candyce did a part 1 tot this topic last week and today I’ll share my list. I’m a mood reader so I mostly just pick up whatever feels right in the moment. But I do have some books I really want to read in the coming months. So let’s take a look!
1. Haikyu! vol 3 (and more probably) – Haruichi Furudate
I found a new obsession in New York! After finishing another volume of Fence I wanted something similar. I asked for help in a bookstore but they couldn’t think of a graphic novel like it, after a while the guy helping me came back and mentioned this manga I might like. And that’s how it started. I got the first volume, read it right away and wanted the next volume haha. The next one I need to read it volume 3 but I have a whole stack to read already, so I might be reading a lot of them this spring!
2. The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi – Samantha Chakraborty
I did actually already start this one haha, but I definitely want to finish this big book the coming weeks. It starts off amazing and I was immediately sucked in. I own S.A. Chakraborty’s series and wanted to read that first. But this book really called my name and I couldn’t not pick it up. I have high hopes that this will be a new favourite.
3. The Ashes and the Star-Cursed King – Carissa Broadbent
After loving The Serpent and the Wings of Night I wanted to dive into the second book right away. Turned out I had to wait a bit longer haha. The second book, The Ashes and the Star-Cursed King, is a bit delayed and will be released this April. As soon as it releases though, Candyce and I will be diving in! I need to know what happens next.
4. Deathnote Black Edition vol. 6 – Tsugumi Ohba
I have had this one for a while now, but still not read it. It’s the final book in the series and I do really want to finish it (and get a little step closer to finally reaching that reading goal this year haha). But it will also be the end of it and that might be holding me back. I will read it this spring though! How will this story wrap up? I need to know!
5. Yellowface – Rebecca F. Kuang
After finishing the Poppy War series I need more R.F. Kuang books. You can probably imagine how excited I was after receiving the eARC of Yellowface! This is a completely different book than the Poppy War books but still one I want to read badly. It will probably also hurt and be thought-provoking. After this one I also hope to pick up Babel.
6. The Cousins – Karen M. McManus
I haven’t read that many YA mysteries in the last couple of months and I would love to read some this spring. Especially the ones I already own haha. And I did start this one already. I’ve read the first couple of chapters and was definitely intrigued. It’s not a big book at all so I should be able to read it pretty fast.
7. The Agathas – Kathleen Glasgow & Liz Lawson
Another YA mystery I already own. I’m pretty excited about this one so after finishing the Cousins this would be a great book to dive in to. It looks like this might not be a 5 star read for me based on the reviews, but do think I will enjoy it.
8. My Sister, the Serial Killer – Oyinkan Braithwaite
This one has been on my wishlist for a LONG time and I’m super happy to say I finally own a copy. When I got it, the bookseller told me she loved the book so I have very high hopes. It’s not a big book at all, only 223 pages so I’m sure it’ll be a very fast read.
9. Saga vol. 10 – Brian K. Vaughn & Fiona Staples
How have I not read this one yet? I bought it in January and have been extremely excited about reading it. But somehow I haven’t haha. Maybe because I had to wait to long and am not looking forward to once again having to wait after this one? Even though the wait for volume 11 won’t be as long as the they already released some of the next single issues. So I will go for it this spring and enjoy the story and characters again!
10. Save the Date – Morgan Matson
Since spring also means sunnier weather (or so I hope) I think I would like to read something fun and sweet with hopefully a nice romance. And finally picking up this Morgan Matson book seems like a perfect one for that craving. I don’t read a lot of fluffy contemporary books but every now and then that’s all I want.
