Hello all and welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday! I have really missed having top ten Tuesday for the past couple of weeks, I am so happy it is back. This weeks top ten topic is books sitting on my spring TBR. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted the The Broke and the Bookish.
So without further ado, here is this weeks Top Ten Tuesday, books on my spring TBR.
1) Countless by Karen Gregory
“When Hedda discovers she is pregnant, she doesn’t believe she could ever look after a baby. The numbers just don’t add up. She is young, and still in the grip of an eating disorder that controls every aspect of how she goes about her daily life. She’s even given her eating disorder a name – Nia. But as the days tick by, Hedda comes to a decision: she and Nia will call a truce, just until the baby is born. 17 weeks, 119 days, 357 meals. She can do it, if she takes it one day at a time …”
I talked about this book in my Goodreads Monday yesterday. After talking about it I have shot it right to the top of my TBR. I really want to read this book as soon as I can.
2) Things I Should have Known by Claire LaZebnik
“The story of Chloe Mitchell, a Los Angeles girl on a quest to find love for her autistic sister, Ivy. Ethan, from Ivy’s class, seems like the perfect match. It’s unfortunate that his older brother, David, is one of Chloe’s least favorite people, but Chloe can deal, especially when she realizes that David is just as devoted to Ethan as she is to Ivy. “
This is another book that I have spoken about in a recent Goodreads Monday. It is released at the end of the month so I really need to get around to reading it soon. The book cover intrigued me, it left me with so many questions about the book. I will definitely be reading this is the spring in the possible sunshine when all my assignments are over.
3) Spontaneous by Aaron Starmer
“Mara Carlyle’s senior year is going as normally as could be expected, until—wa-bam!—fellow senior Katelyn Ogden explodes during third period pre-calc.
Katelyn is the first, but she won’t be the last teenager to blow up without warning or explanation. As the seniors continue to pop like balloons and the national eye turns to Mara’s suburban New Jersey hometown, the FBI rolls in and the search for a reason is on.”
I have been wanting to read this book for so long now! I first heard about it when John Green mentioned it in one of his videos and I instantly wanted to read it. I think this would be the perfect book to read when it is slightly rainy outside.
4) The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
“Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.
Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.”
This is another book that I have talked about in a recent Goodreads Monday. I am so excited to read this book. I finally bought Simon vs. last week so I am extremely excited to read them both.
5) Doing it by Hannah Witton
“Figuring out how to build and maintain healthy relationships – with your family, friends, romantically and with yourself – is a crucial part of being a teen. It’s not easy though, particularly in a digital age where information and advice are so forthcoming it can be hard to know who or what to believe or trust. Porn is everywhere, sexting is the norm and messages about body image are highly mixed. Hannah combats this by tackling subjects ranging from masturbation and puberty to slut shaming and consent in an accessible, relatable and extremely honest way.”
I have watched Hannah on YouTube for quite a while now and as soon as I found out that she was releasing a book I was excited to give it a read. Hannah is always so honest and real with whatever she talks about so I just feel as though this book will be extremely honest.
6) History is All you Left Me by Adam Silvera
“When Griffin’s first love and ex-boyfriend, Theo, dies in a drowning accident, his universe implodes. Even though Theo had moved to California for college and started seeing Jackson, Griffin never doubted Theo would come back to him when the time was right. But now, the future he’s been imagining for himself has gone far off course.”
I was so excited for this book to come out but as I do a lot I put it down after buying it and it got lost in my TBR pile but I do plan on reading this book in Spring. I have heard so many things about the book emotionally destroying people so my plan is to read it after my assignments are over so that I can sit and cry and get rid of all the emotions of stress I have had for months now.
7) All About Mia by Lisa Williamson
“One family, three sisters.
GRACE, the oldest: straight-A student.
AUDREY, the youngest: future Olympic swimming champion.
And MIA, the mess in the middle.
Mia is wild and daring, great with hair and selfies, and the undisputed leader of her friends – not attributes appreciated by her parents or teachers.
When Grace makes a shock announcement, Mia hopes that her now-not-so-perfect sister will get into the trouble she deserves.
But instead, it is Mia whose life spirals out of control – boozing, boys and bad behaviour – and she starts to realise that her attempts to make it All About Mia might put at risk the very things she loves the most.”
This is another book that I talked about in one of my Goodreads Monday’s. As soon as I picked up this book I pictured myself reading it sat on a deckchair on holiday. This actually might come true now. Me and David are in the process of booking ourselves a holiday to somewhere sunny so I cannot wait to read this book.
8) Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt
“Lexi Angelo has grown up helping her dad with his events business. She likes to stay behind the scenes, planning and organizing…until author Aidan Green – messy haired and annoyingly arrogant – arrives unannounced at the first event of the year. Then Lexi’s life is thrown into disarray.”
I picked this book up on release day because I just happened to be in a bookstore as they were putting out the book. I picked it up and put it on my TBR instantly. It is the sort of book I would like to read in Spring when I finally finish university and have a lot of time to read. I am excited to have the ability to use my time reading books instead of being really stressed on a university course that isn’t for me.
9) The X-Files: Origins – Agent of Chaos by Kami Garcia
“The X-Files Origins: Agent of Chaos explores the teen years of Fox Mulder, the beloved character depicted in the cult-favorite TV show The X-Files. His story is set in the spring of 1979, when serial murder, the occult, and government conspiracy were highlighted in the news.
The book will follow Mulder as he experiences life-changing events that set him on the path to becoming an FBI agent.”
I have been wanting to read this book for what seems like forever now. I am a huge fan of The X-Files and especially Fox Mulder. I cannot wait to see what his origin story is and it will probably make me rewatch The X-Files again.
10) Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen
“Sixteen-year-old Petula De Wilde is anything but wild. A family tragedy has made her shut herself off from the world. Once a crafting fiend with a happy life, Petula now sees danger in everything, from airplanes to ground beef.
The worst part of her week is her comically lame mandatory art therapy class. She has nothing in common with this small band of teenage misfits, except that they all carry their own burden of guilt.”
Technically I am reading this book at the minute but because of university work and how stressed I am, I have hardly any time it any at all to read. So it might be spring before I actually finish this book I hope not. I love Susin Nielsen’s other books so I really want to get stuck into this one.
