TTT- What Am I Reading This Spring?

Hi Everyone and welcome to Top Ten Tuesday a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish this weeks topic is – What will I be reading this Spring?

So lets find out shall we!?

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Scarlett

I’ve recently been reading Cinder and LOVED it so this Spring I want to continue on with this series, it’s so good and so addictive!

The Light Between Oceans by M.L Steadman 

the light between oceans

I own this book already and have been warned it’s a heartbreaking tale of love and loss (I can’t wait to find out, who doesn’t love a good tear jerker?)

The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry

I keep seeing this everywhere and it seems like such a fun romp, right up my ally.

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

It’s Cassandra Clare, need I say more?

Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon

I am slowly but surly making may way though this- it’s not as good as Outlander seems like more of a bridge to book three (but hey we’ve all been there). Looking forward to series two of Outlander starting this April though.

The Night Manager by John Le Carre

I am OBSESSED with The Night Manager (BBC Drama) that hits UK screens on Sunday nights. Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Coleman and Hugh Laurie are delight. It’s an addictive, sexy, James Bond esk tele! I need to read this NOW!

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

I’m in the mood for some time travel in my life, also I keep hearing great things!

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

all the light we cannot see 

This has been on my TBR for awhile now and I’m in the mood for reading some Historical Fiction this Spring.

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy 

war and peace

I know, ambitious and I have made a (small ) start on this whopper which is probably going to take me more than just Spring . But ever since watching the adaptation of the novel of been dying to give it a go and see if I make it through.

The Lion Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S Lewis

I have been reading this series for my Problem of Susan Challenge, now I am slightly lagging behind but I am picking them back up again and hope to make some series head way with the challenge this Spring.

I hope you enjoyed my Top Ten Tuesday!

Happy Reading Everyone!

September TBR

tbr

I have high hopes for September and really feel it’s going to be a great reading month. There is so much I want to read at the moment so my theory is chuck it all in my September TBR and endeavour to read it ALL! (Maybe there are some flaws in this plan? We will see…)

I am in a bit of a weird reading mood at the moment where I keep flitting from one book then another, I don’t normally read more than one book at a time but at the moment I have quite a few things on the go all of which I am hoping to finish in September.

  1. Draganfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon #2 Outlander Series

Dragonfly

The second book in the Outlander series, if you haven’t read the first one… what have you been doing and of you haven’t seen the show… guys you are missing out on this guy. Enough said.

2. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

3. Ariel by Sylvia Plath

Dragonfly.jpg 3

Ariel is a short poetry collection which I am already nearly done with and I am sure will be reviewing soon.

4. The Lion Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S Lewis

I am currently reading the Chronicles of Narnia as part of my The Problem of Susan Challenge click here to find out more. I am reading the books chronologically hoping that will give me a better insight to the books and to Susan.

5. The Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Dragonfly.jpg 4

I keep hearing great things about this series and this book has just been sitting patiently on my shelf. I have read the first three chapters and I think it’s something I’m really going to enjoy and look forward to reviewing!

6. Stonemouth by Iain Banks

Stonemouth 7

I watched the BBC adaptation of Stonemouth earlier this year and LOVED it. This is a Scottish Romeo and Juliet with gangsters, what more could you want?

Stonemouth 5

I hope I can get through all these month as well as leaving some time open for some random reads. I’m really excited about my September reading.

Happy reading everyone! x
