Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week, she posts an idea relating to books and encourages other book bloggers to respond with their own top ten lists.
This week’s topic is “top ten books on my spring 2022 TBR.” I’m a mood reader, and as a result, I have a massive TBR pile that I’m terrible at sticking to — especially now that my library doesn’t have late fees. Here are 5 books that I need to read (library holds that are piled up on my kitchen table) and 5 books that haven’t come out yet, but that I fully intend to read in the next couple months.
The Library Books
Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune
I adored The House in the Cerulean Sea when I read it last year, and I’ve been saving this for when I need some whimsy in my life. The first few days after Daylight Saving Time are always rough for me, so I may need to start this sooner rather than later!
Delilah Green Doesn’t Care by Ashley Herring Blake
A sapphic grumpy/sunshine romance with the only one bed trope is exactly what I need to usher in the springtime.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
When I told myself I would finally tackle TJR’s books, I apparently meant ‘binge both Malibu Rising and Daisy Jones & the Six before placing holds on everything she ever wrote.’ My hold on Evelyn Hugo is currently in transit and I am so curious to see how the Mick Riva extended universe will continue in this story.
Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover
Yes, this is my first Colleen Hoover book. Yes, TikTok made me do it. Yes, CoHo’s books are so popular that this is the first one that came in (I am number 700+ in line for both Verity and It Ends with Us).
Tidesong by Wendy Xu
This looks adorable. It’s a slice-of-life fantasy in the vein of a Studio Ghibli film, which would be perfect for one of those warm, rainy spring days.
The Spring ’22 Releases
Lakelore by Anna-Marie McLemore
One of my auto-buy authors releasing a new story featuring two neurodivergent, non-binary protagonists? I need this ASAP.
An Arrow to the Moon by Emily X.R. Pan
All I know about this book is that it’s a retelling of Romeo and Juliet infused with Chinese mythology, but that’s all I need to know to know that I need it.
A Magic Steeped in Poison by Judy I. Lin
The synopsis had me at “magical tea-brewing competition.” And that cover might be the most gorgeous cover I have ever seen.
