My Spring 2022 TBR

My Spring 2022 TBR

Hi friends! 👋🏻 We’re now getting back to the warmer months up here in the Northern Hemisphere and while that’s a good thing for a lot of people, I would rather it still be cold because I hate warm weather and I get seasonal depression in summer rather than winter. I’m truly a vampire at heart so too much sunlight isn’t good for me.

I missed last week’s Top 10 Tuesday prompt because I am very forgetful, so I am presenting my spring TBR today instead. I haven’t been setting TBRs since I started my job since I now have a habit of seeing something that interests me on the self and then just taking it home, but since I have so many unread books at home, I want to try to read those before getting books from work.

Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan – When this book came into the library, I knew I had to have it immediately. I may be reading a lot of library books with simple or minimal covers these days, but I am still a sucker for a gorgeous cover. I am a little confused on where this stands in terms of reading age because we have it in the adult SFF section, but the internet is telling me it lands somewhere in between YA and adult 🤷🏻‍♀️

The Lost Village by Camilla Sten – A little while back, I decided that I wanted to read more translated books that aren’t just manga, and finding out that this book was originally published in Swedish was a treat. Our library has a lot of Scandinavian novels in the crime/thriller section, but I’m not a big fan of crime so finding out that this is a horror novel was an even better treat.

Chasing the Boogeyman by Richard Chizmar – Another book I got from the library, this one has a pretty interesting premise. This is a murder mystery horror featuring a fictional version of the author returning to his hometown. I’m not very well versed in metafiction because it doesn’t always agree with my brain, but maybe this one can change my mind.

Thirteen Storeys by Jonathan Sims – Last library book! This book has a somewhat famous author but I’ve never listened to The Magnus Archives so I don’t know what the writing is going to be like. But hey, I found a horror book at work so I’m going to read it.

Aurora’s End by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – This book has been on my physical TBR for so long that I’m annoyed with myself for not picking it up sooner. Especially since I absolutely adore this series and bought this book as soon as it came out, so I’m making it a priority.

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab – This one is a reread! I still want to continue on with the Shades of Magic series but it’s been such a long time since I read the first book so I feel like it’s earned a reread.

Gilded by Marissa Meyer – Even though I read Supernova at the end of last year, it feels like it’s been such a long time since I read a Marissa Meyer book. Fairytale retellings aren’t my favourite but I do love The Lunar Chronicles and I’m excited to see how she tackled Rumplestiltskin. For some reason, I could not find this book in hardback anywhere so I finally bit the bullet and bought a paperback copy.

Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo – Once again, I am late to a Grishaverse book and am reading it when the hype has completely died down. But that’s fine with me because the hype machine is always intimidating and I don’t like having my opinions affected by outside influences. I was tempted to reread King of Scars but decided against it because that boy is a good chunk of a book and I can still remember what happens for the most point. Plus, I need to yearn over Nikolai and Zoya 🥺

Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim – I am not afraid to admit that I bought this book in hardback simply because I liked the cover. That being said, I really want to read more fantasy books that take place in worlds that aren’t inspired by medieval Western Europe because I am sick to death of those and want to see other cultures be the main worlds in fantasy.

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab – I reread the first book, and then it will be time to read the rest of the series!

    Hope you have an amazing spring! Great books on your list! Also YAS for Rule of Wolves! It was such a wonderful, amazing book, though it also made me cry many times.

    I totally get you on the summer depression. I don’t get actual SAD, but I definitely feel less energetic and happy during the hot months. Unfortunately, I live in sunny Arizona so it’s scorching nearly year round. Ugh. Thank goodness for a/c and swimming pools. That’s what gets me through 🙂

    Happy TTT!

      I wish I had AC and swimming pools, the best I can do is open a window and turn on a fan 😅

    I started Chasing the Boogeyman but had a hard time getting into it. I’ll get it from the library again eventually and give it a second shot. Good luck getting all yours read!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

    The Lost Village looks so spooky!

    I tend to make my TTT quarterly reading lists off of books I know I will read for book club, books I’ve placed on hold at the library, and my challenge books so that I know I will actually read some or most of the books. I used to place books I wanted to read willy-nilly and then was shocked to find three months later that I had very few of them.

    My discussion questions centers around books that arrived on the scene in your life at just the right moment. A review of Ordinary Grace with a discussion question

    Thirteen Storeys is on my TBR – I loved The Magnus Archives, I loved The Mechanisms so I’m very excited to read fiction coming from Jonny Sim’s mind!

    I still haven’t read Rule of Wolves. For some reason my excitement completely fizzled out.
    I just got Six Crimson Cranes to read and I hope to read it in the next few months too 😀

      That’s a shame about Rule of Wolves. I hope you enjoy Six Crimson Cranes though 😀
