Books I want to read in the spring

I can’t believe Spring “starts” this weekend. I say that in quotes because we all know that while spring arrives on our calendars, whether the weather will feel spring like is totally up to Mother Nature. And honestly I don’t really trust her given her attitude of late.

Anyway regardless if I will be able to officially put away my winter coat next week or not, the new season does affect my reading mood. Luckily this year, there is a nice mix of new and old books that I want to get to. Whether I do, will be another matter. So for this week’s Top 10 Tuesday, by That Artsy Reader Girl, here are the books that are on my Spring TBR. (All book covers are linked to Goodreads).

If there is one book that I am super excited is out, it’s definitely Imbolo Mbue’s latest book. I have been dying for her to write something new since her debut “Behold the Dreamers,” which is in my top 10. I read an excerpt of this and I seriously can’t wait to lay my hands on it.

I have heard nothing but good things about this book and I am so excited that this is one of the selections for book club. We are reading it in May but I may end up reading it before that.

Jenny Lawson’s newest book doesn’t come out until April but if there is one nonfiction book I am excited to read, this is it. I think she is absolutely hysterical even as she touches on real life issues. I loved “Furiously Happy” and my husband, who is not a reader, loved it too. We have officially become Lawson fans.

Ever since reading “The Orphan Train” this past summer, I have been dying to read another Kline books. Lo and behold, she comes out with a book. I haven’t heard too much about it but for that I am glad, so that it doesn’t ruin it for me.

I have heard that this book isn’t as great compared to “Station Eleven” but even so I am dying to read it. I really want to get it off my TBR list sooner rather than later.

“Strange the Dreamer” has been on my shelves since I received it through a care package. I have heard nothing but great things about this book and lately this book has been calling to me from its spot of the shelf.

This book has also been calling out to me from my bookshelf. I am not one to read fantasy but for some reason I have suddenly been wanting some fantasy in my life. I think I will be sitting down with this book soon.

Geraldine Brooks has become one of those authors that I want to read everything she has written. It started when I read “People of the Book” for book club and have since read two others – all of them I have loved. With that said, “Caleb’s Crossing” is the last one on my bookshelf I have yet to read. The fact that I have left it so long untouched remains a mystery to me.

I do want to make sure that I continue to cross off books from my Classics Book Club list so this is one I am going to try to get to sooner rather than later.

I received “Infinite Country” through my Book of the Month subscription and I really can’t wait to read it. I haven’t heard too much about it, but the reviews I have seen have all been 4/5 stars. Funny enough, Jenny Lawson herself has read this book and gave it a review on Goodreads.

What books are on your TBR? Have you read any on this list? Let’s discuss!

    • I bought my husband Lawson’s “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” but he won’t let me read it until he does so I am super excited with “Broken”. Now we can just swap when we are done.
      I am so glad to hear that about Vanishing Half. I have a feeling I am going to love it.
      I know that Mbue’s book is different from her first but Im hoping I will like it.
