Today's topic is: The books topping my Spring TBR list

I haven't done a TTT for weeks, but I just cannot resist the semi-annual TBR lists. Looking at all the pretty covers of books that are almost out is one of my favorite things in the world. I tried to keep this to 10--ok, I didn't try too hard, but I did try to keep it reasonable.

For months I've been dying to get my hands on this book about a girl whose private letters to ex-boyfriends get mailed to them. I was so that girl who wrote letters to boys in high school. Letters that they were never, ever supposed to see, of course.
What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick
From the author who wrote My Life Next Door. A swoon-y summertime romance. I could try to think of a third reason, but I think those two are enough.
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
A dark reimagining of Oz with Dorothy as the villain. Sold! I kept hoping this would show up on EW, but alas, it never did. Not too much longer now.
#scandal by Sarah Ockler
A girl agrees to go to the prom with her BFF's boyfriend when her friend gets too sick to go. Scandal erupts when the two kiss and pictures get splashed all over social media. Growing up in the 90s, I'm so, so glad that I never had to deal with social media as a teen. The issue fascinates me.
The Geography of Me and You by Jennifer E. Smith
A meet cute between two teens in NYC during a city-wide blackout leads to a long distance relationship. It sounds adorable.
Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
This book about Hitler's niece sounds so intriguing.
House of Ivy and Sorrow by Natalie Whipple
Witches, that cover, and so and and so forth.
Don't You Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn
In a town where there is no sickness, every fourth year teens get infected with deadly urges. A girl's sister, named Piper, is in jail for leading several classmates into their watery graves. A retelling of the Pied Piper is genius. And who can read that title without immediately breaking into song (as you walk on by, will you call my name)?
Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
A young set designer befriends a silver screen legend. I can't wait for this one.
Two NJ teens hit the road. I wish there were more friend books. Also, that cover is so gorgeous.
We Were Liars by E.Lockhart
I'll read whatever E.Lockhart writes. It's really just that simple.
Killer Instinct by S.E. Green
I haven't read any reviews for this novel that follows a teen girl who may be a serial killer, but I've seen a few dismal star-ratings. I won't be swayed from this one, though, and am hoping to be the black sheep.
Chapel Wars by Lindsay Levitt
A girl who has inherited her grandfather's Vegas wedding chapel finds herself falling for the son of the rival chapel across the street. Looks pretty cute.
The Falconer by Elizabeth May
I'm going to go ahead and admit that I only want to read this for that cover. I want that red hair.
Pointe by Brandy Colbert
A ballerina's friend returns after being abducted for four years. I love anything revolving around ballet, and this one sounds intriguing to boot.
The One & Only by Emily Giffin
I haven't enjoyed Ms. Giffin's last 3 books nearly as much as I enjoyed her first 3, but I'm hoping this one is awesome. We'll see. I do wonder why she never gets interesting covers.

That's it for me. There are several books coming out in April alone that I'm excited for that couldn't make the list. Spring is going to be a great season for books. What books are topping your Spring TBR list? Link me up!


  1. Many of these are top Spring picks for me too!! To All The Boys, Don't You Forget About Me, Geography of You & Me, Falconer, and Everything Leads to You---can't wait to dig into ALL of these. Dorothy Must Die is pretty amazing, I thought. Hope you do, too! :)

  2. YOUR ENTIRE LIST. I really want to read all of these, and I'm so glad that they're on your list! Mainly because I forgot how excited I was for a few of them. Great list!! So many contemporaries which makes me insanely happy.

  3. Yes!!! So many good books on your list. I want to read a lot of them. I'm particularly excited about To All The Boys and Don't You Forget About Me!

  4. We totally have some of the same books on our lists! Of course we do! I hope we love the books too!

  5. I have Jenny Han and Lindsey Leavitt on my list too :) The other books in your selection look like great ones! I have to agree with you about The Falconer. I definitely want that hair too. LOL :) I've only read Something Borrowed from Emily Giffin and I wanted to grab my hair and shout to the world not because I hate it but because even though I want to hate what was happening in the book, I totally get it and accept that sometimes things are just as messed up as they seem. :)

    Thanks for sharing. Here are My Top Ten Tuesday picks :)

  6. I LOVE THIS LIST SO MUCH. Yes yes to The Geography of You and Me, oh, and Dorothy Must Die! I love warped twisted fairy tales (not that it's "technically" a fairy tale...a rewrite? something?) and Dorothy as the villain....I'm soooo sold.

  7. We share quite a few this week, and several others you mentioned fell just shy of hitting my list. :) I can't wait to finally dive into We Were Liars. I've heard so many fantastic things about it.

    My TTT.

  8. Such a good list! I'm looking forward to reading most of these as well, although I doubt I'll be reading them any time soon as I'm on the strictest book-buying ban I've ever been on! o.o Although I may just end up breaking it for Since You've Been Gone, as it's Morgan Matson, and I just cannot resist her work.

    My Top Ten

  9. I agree with everything on your list! I am especially excited to check out We Were Liars, The Falconer, To All the Boys, and What I Thought Was True. I can't wait for spring, even though it seems more like winter will never leave PA.

  10. Great list!! You have several books that are on my TBR list, they just didn't make my top ten this week. I do plan on reading The Geography of You and Me and We Were Liars by the end of the summer. I will have to keep an eye out for your reviews.

    Here is my TTT: http://jacquesbooknook.blogspot.com/2014/03/top-ten-tuesday-books-on-my-spring-tbr.html

  11. A lot of these are on my list as well; To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Chapel Wars, and We Were Liars. I'm also excited for The Taking by Kimberly Derting & Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern =)

  12. Wow!!! That's a fantastic list!! Apparently we have very similar reading taste because I want to read almost every single one of those!! :)

  13. This is an amazing list. I've been having trouble figuring out just how I want to keep my TBR list in order, especially now with all the books I want to add to it! :) House of Ivy and Sorrow looks really good.

    Bella @ Ciao Bella

  14. We Were Liars is amazing! And I want so, so many of the books on your list. I feel like this year is an excellent year YA-wise ;)

  15. It should be no surprise that I want to read every contemporary that you listed haha. I've read The Geography of You and Me and I think you'll really like it! It's super cute. It kind of reminds me of Statistical, in a really good way.

  16. What a fabulous list! I WANT THEM ALL. I'm very excited for Jenny Han's new book, and Huntley Fitzpatrick's! #scandal is promising, and The Museum of Intangible Things sounds greeaaaatttt.

  17. Such a great list - I pretty much have all of these on my TBR as well!
    I the blog name and the outlook btw, super cute! :)

  18. I plan on reading a lot of these. To All the Boys, What I Thought Was True, Geography of You and Me…can't wait! So many good books! ~Pam

  19. A few of these made my list, too. The Falconer would have been on there for sure, but I actually just finished reading it. And I kind of loved it. It wasn't perfect, but it was fast-paced, the writing was good, and I liked the characters. I think from your list, though, I'm most excited about What I Thought Was True. I need that book in my hands already!

  20. I am actually reading the Falconer right now, I am enjoying it quite a bit. I love the Scottish references and the blend of fairies and old England. I cannot wait to read Dorthy Must Die though, the cover is fantastic!

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
