Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List

1. Insurgent by: Veronica Roth comes out May 1, 2012.  I have one of those count down widgets for this book that is how excited I am.  And yes I do frequently check the widget to see how many days are left.  I've never pre-ordered a book before, but I kinda want to for this one.

2. Pretty Amy by: Lisa Burstein hits the shelves May 15, 2012.  The author and I follow each other on twitter and I always see her tweets about this book.  I'll admit it's not something I would have picked off the shelf on my own, but after reading her posts about it I'm intrigued.

3. Blood Red Road by: Moira Young has been out for almost a year.  A few months ago when I joined Goodreads and started blogging I saw so many people recommending this book.  The library hasn't had it in, so I've had to wait.  It's not something I'd usually read so I'm hesitant to just buy it, but if so many
people are saying it's 5 stars it's gotta be good right?!

4. Brightest Kind of Darkness by: P.T. Michelle came out awhile ago, but the next book in the series Lucid is coming out this spring 2012 so I have to start reading this one soon!  The synopsis sounds kind of like final destination with one person changing fate.  Definitely caught my attention.

5. I've Got Your Number by: Sophie Kinsella came out in February 2012.  I love this author.  I read anything and everything she writes (except the shopaholic series).  This is the perfect spring chicklit book to read while sitting outside sipping some ice tea (as I pretend to have a wrap around porch with a view of a beach in SC rather than a gravel patio in NJ looking out at some deer in a backyard)...I need to move.

6. Stay Tuned by: Lauren Clark is another great girly read and by girly I mean it's not a Dystopian with savages and wars which I've been reading a lot of lately.  This one looked like a refreshing glass of water if you know what I mean.  And...I'm part of Lauren's blog tour!  I need to read this soon so I can participate in the tour.


7. Iron Daughter by: Julie Kagawa came out in 2010, but I just discovered this series.  I started reading Iron King yesterday and I'm pretty sure I'm going to
breeze through this series.  

8. Deadlocked by: Charlaine Harris comes out MAY 1st!!! Same day as Insurgent.  I forgot about this one because I discovered this series awhile ago and read all of them in a row.  This one is #12 of the series so I can't wait to read continue Sookie's journey.

9. Unearthly by: Cynthia Hand is another one I see everyone talking about.  It's yet another series.  I can't believe I'm saying this, but I want to read this one and add it to my growing list of trilogies.  

10. Secrets (Holly Nather Trilogy #2) by: Sara Daniell comes out in April (date TBA).  I loved her debut novel (picture to the right) Visions.  I'm glad I don't have to wait long to find out how Holly's Journey continues!
