Top 10 Tuesday: Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List


Yes! It's that very special time of year when I tell you about the ten books I really want to read this season and then ... don't read any of them, because I am weird like that. Also, there are a lot of books in the world and I am easily distracted.

  • ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times by Andrew MacLean (June)
  • At the end of the world, a girl and her cat, Jelly Beans, search for a powerful artifact.
  • A Crown for Cold Silver by Alex Marshall (April)
  • In this epic fantasy, a retired general rallies her troops to battle against an unknown enemy. On my list because I've been told the novel doesn't take itself seriously. Also, obviously, a female general is not a character I see a lot of in fantasy.
  • Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bingham by Emily Bingham (June)
  • Recounts the true adventures of a Jazz Age seductress who loved a great many ladies. The Kirkus review talks a lot about daddy issues, so I'm not really 100% on this selection.
  • Lumberjanes, Volume 1 by Noelle Stevenson w/ Grace Ellis, Brooke Allen, & Shannon Watters (April)
  • Strange happenings at Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady Types. Jinkies!
  • Ms. Marvel, Volume 2: Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson w/ Adrian Alphona & Jacob Wyatt (April)
  • I love Kamala Khan, awkward nerdy girl that she is, and can't wait to see what she gets up to next.


  • Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (May)
  • Yes, I know it's a web comic. I've read the web comic. And now I want the book. Is that rational? No, it's love.
  • Rat Queens, Volume 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N'rygoth by Kurtis J. Wiebe w/ Roc Upchurch & Stjepan Sejic (May)
  • Volume 1 was just ridiculously good fun.
  • Uprooted by Naomi Novik (May)
  • A new spin on the dragon-devourer-of-maidens story.
  • The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi (May)
  • Sounds like a blood-splattered noir about water rights.
  • The Well by Catherine Chanter (May)
  • In a drought-ridden England, a prisoner is sent home to finish her sentence ... and it rains for the first time in yonks. But only over her home/prison. Spooky.
