This week’s topic is a look at some of the books that are finding their way to the top of my list for the season. Some of them fulfill my reading challenges and some are just books I want to read this spring. Since my current TBR clocks in at over 500 books (and that definitely isn’t all of them), this is just a small snippet. But since most of what I’m reading is stuff for my A-Z challenge and my series challenge, I didn’t want to overwhelm or give too much away. These are all books I’m reasonably sure I’ll be finishing in the next month or so.
Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child by Bob Spitz—this is my choice for the letter ‘D’ of my A-Z reading challenge. My mom bought it for me last year when I was in the midst of reading women authors only. I almost decided to read it anyway, but I held back.
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng—Since I don’t have any books that start with ‘E,’ I went through my TBR and found this book, which is one I’ve been looking forward to reading.
The Magicians by Lev Grossman—I’ve heard great things about this series, and my hold on this book finally came up, so I finally have a chance to read it.
My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante—Another contender for my series challenge. I’m still on the waiting list for this one at the library, but I’m hoping I get to read it this spring.
The Tsar of Love and Techno by Anthony Marra—I’ve had this book on my TBR since last year, and I picked it up at the library last week.
Yes Please by Amy Poehler—She is just the best. I can’t wait to read her book.
My Life in Middlemarch by Rebecca Mead—I enjoyed reading this venerable classic (Middlemarch by George Eliot) last year, so I’m hoping this work will allow me to see it in a new way.
