#TopTenTuesday!

TTT-Big2I realized that somewhere along the line I’d stopped participating in the Top Ten Tuesdays, hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Stumbling across a post for them today I discovered that this blog-hop is now hosted over at The Artsy Reader Girl, and figured it might be fun to dip my toes back in. I may not update every week, but it’ll be fun to have another semi-regular thing happening here — and it will help keep me engaged in my reading!

March 20: Books On My Spring TBR

This list… it is LONG.

  1. Les Miserables – by Victor Hugo  
    I’ve fallen behind in my read-along. Like, a few months behind (already), so I plan to do a bit of catch-up reading and then get into the habit of a chapter a night.
  2. Wish You Were Here: A Mrs. Murphy Mystery – by Rita Mae Brown
    As April will be largely overshadowed with surgeries and surgery recovery, I figured I need some lighter reads to get myself through the month. This one I’ll be reading to fulfill the BookRiot Read Harder Challenge (A Mystery by a Person of Color or LGBTQ+ Author)
  3. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn – by Betty Smith.
    Fulfilling both the April Beaverton Library Challenge (Story that invoked the immigrant experience) and knocking a Classics Club book from my list, I figure this will be a good one to tackle this summer.
  4. Anne of Avonlea – by Lucy Maud Montgomery
    I enjoyed Anne of Green Gables when I read it before, and want to pay a visit back to that world. Again, with the surgeries and recoveries of April, it seems like a good book to slate for the spring.
  5. Heidi – by Johanna Spyri
    Another reading challenge book, and another “because, surgery,” read. This one is on both my Classics Club list, and it’s a Children’s Classic published before 1980 for the Book Riot Challenge!  Yay! I also have a pretty cool hardcover copy that I’ve been wanting to read, which will be perfect for bed-ridden me.
  6. A Banned or Challenged Book from 2017.
    The list of these won’t be released until April, but I plan to snag at least one from the list to read to start preparing for my participation in Banned Book week in September.
  7. Summer of My German Soldier – by Bette Green
    Speaking of preparing for Banned Book week… I also figured I might as well raid my pre-existing collection of books to keep reading through the top-100 list from a few years back.  This is one of them, and one i haven’t read in quite a long time. Also fits in the “relatively simple reads for surgery-time”
  8. The Face On The Milk Carton – by Caroline B. Cooney
    Yup, another for the Banned Book Week list, and another from my shelves.
  9. Keep Smiling Through – by Ann Rinaldi
    I think this is a book I actually have at home, it came out after my Rinaldi-phase, but I thought it would be fun to revisit a bit. Another good-for-surgery-time kind of read.  See a pattern?
  10. A Princess in Theory: Reluctant Royals – by Alyssa Cole
    Having really enjoyed her “An Extraordinary Union,” I was getting some rave reviews of this book from a friend of mine, so thought I’d add it to my list for this spring. It’s always nice to add a little romance to the pile.

    1. It only made the list because I’m trying to catch up with the Les Miserable Chapter-a-day read-along so I’ll be doing some good chunks of reading in it this spring!
