Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Spring TBR list

..although it's officially Autumn here in Australia ;-) Here is my TBR list for March until the end of May:

1. Theft of Swords. Riyria Revelations 1 by Michael J. Sullivan --> Because it sounds like solid High Fantasy and the series is fully written & published. So if I like it I won't have to wait for new books. Also, the main characters are 2 dudes and I expect bromance.

2. The Mirror Empire. Worldbreaker Saga 1 by Kameron Hurley --> I started reading it last year but stopped because I wanted to finish some other books first. I enjoyed it though, as it was pretty dark and innovative, with cool characters and lots of surprises already.

3. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov --> I wanted to read more classics and have been interested in reading this for a while.

4. The Stand by Stephen King --> It's kinda my long-term project and I finally wanna spend some more time with it.

5. The Orphan Queen by Jodie Meadows --> It sounds cool and I hope it can live up to my expectations. The moment there's a love triangle in sight I will put it down though..

6. Uprooted by Naomi Novik --> This sounds soooo good and I can't wait to get my hands on it when it gets published in May. I never read her Temeraire books but my best friend likes them and I heard a lot of positive opinions about those books.

7. The Emperor's Blades. Chronicles of the Unhewn Throne 1 by Brian Staveley --> On my list for a while and now that the second part is published and liked by many I will finally give the first one a try and hopefully love it to bits.

8. It by Stephen King --> Because Stephen King.

9. Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman --> I like Gaiman's novels, but his short-stories so far have been brilliant and highly enjoyable. I am happy to know that there are a lot of his collections out there I haven't read yet.

10. The Martian by Andy Weir --> The sample didn't blow me away but I will read it anyways. There's so much hype surrounding this one and I wanna know if it's really that awesome.


  1. Jup, Der Marsianer geht auch gerade im Büro um. Zwei Kollegen haben es bereits gelesen und geliebt. Und The Emperor's Blade erscheint im April auch auf Deutsch. - Überlege ob ich mir auch mal wieder einen King zulegen will. Ich tendiere zur Zeit zu "Der Talisman" - auch wenn ich das vor Jahren mal gelesen habe (ich erinnere mich an nichts) ... Bin gespannt was du zu all den Büchern sagst :)

  2. Fab list! We'll have to compare notes on Uprooted and The Emperor's Blades ;) I've heard great things about The Orphan Queen - I think I might have to give it a go too. Happy reading! x
