Hello everyone, long time no see! Since it’s Tuesday, it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday!
The last Top Ten Tuesday I did was for the books on my Winter TBR for 2020-2021 (oops, it’s been while 😅), and I did read one of the books on my list! As someone who is more of a mood reader and just kind of switches to reading something just because I feel like it, that’s a major accomplishment for me 👌
Anyways, this weeks Top Ten Tuesday will be focused on books I want to read this Spring 🌼 Whether or not I get to it this season is a whole other story… 🤔
I also noticed a theme where basically all of the books (except for two of them) were recommended to me by people I used to work with at Barnes and Noble 😂 So I guess that’s the theme for Spring 2022: Read all the books recommended by old coworkers.
Now, let’s talk about some books I want to read this season 🌼🌷🌻
As a Bookshop affiliate, I get a small commission if you purchase anything through the book links in this post.
The first two books on this list were books I was already interested in, so I’m going to go ahead and start off with those!
Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr
I enjoyed All the Light We Cannot See, so when I saw he had a new book out last year, I picked it up immediately. Although I love his work, he tends to write more slow paced books, that are worth the read, but are definitely not going to be finished in one sitting. I figure I would wait until either I’m done with my spring semester, or I might pick it up sooner if I’m in the mood.
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
I just thought the premise sounded interesting; our protagonist Yadriel wants to prove himself a real brujo to his family, who can’t accept his true gender. So, Yadriel attempts to contact the spirit of his murdered cousin and set him free (and in the process, Yadriel can prove himself to his family). However, he ends up summoning the spirit of Julian Diaz, who was the “bad boy” at their school. Julian wants to find out what happened to him, and enlists Yadriel to help him. What was meant to be an investigation into Julian’s death, however, may end up turning into something more.
This sounded like a fun and interesting YA fantasy (plus I got it on sale, so even better!), and I can’t wait to read it.
Now, let’s move on to all the books that were recommended to me by old coworkers!
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan
Shady Hollow by Juneau Black
So, there’s about 5+ volumes here for me to read here, which makes this a good place to round off my list.
I’ve been making my way through Berserk since last fall/winter, and I’m close to finishing up with what’s been published so far!
Thanks for checking out my list!
