Which books are you looking forward to reading this Spring? Here’s a look at what we’re eyeing.
Kim – I’m reading from a bunch of new to me authors plus a couple of new author favorites this Spring.
The Golden Son, Shilpi Somaya Gowda
I have really wanted to start diversifying my reading a bit more. I think this book will help me get started with a trip to India.
City of Stairs, Robert Jackson Bennett
This is a city that was once a place for Gods and Goddesses. Now conquered, a revolution is on the rise. This book is supposed to examine some pretty tough subjects and I’m eager to dive in to it.
Vicious, V.E. Schwab
I just finished A Darker Shade of Magic and really enjoyed it. I wanted more of Schwab’s writing but wasn’t ready to move on in the series. Vicious is a story about what can happen when you play with death and the supernatural.
Uprooted, Naomi Novik
“Agnieszka people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood.” Fierce females and powerful dragons? Sign me up.
The Screaming Staircase, Jonathan Stroud
A country plagued by ghosts. A physic investigations agent. A haunted house. Let’s do this.
Tanya – my list has the unread beauties from my Winter Reading List plus books I own but have yet to read.
Illuminae, Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I first saw this book on many “Best Of 2015” lists and then read a blurb that says, “This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded.” How could I resist?!
The Time Machine, H.G. Wells
(March Motif – Take a Trip). Each year I try to read a few genre classics, and this month’s theme provides me the perfect excuse to read my first book by H.G. Wells.
Fledgling, Octavia Butler
Butler has rocked my World with her books, but it’s been about a year since I read anything by her, and that’s way too long! I’m dipping back in with this vampire novel.
The Woman in Black, Susan Hill
I raved about reading Hill’s work for the first time this year – 2 of the books in her Simon Serailler series (Fave Audiobooks of 2015) – and I want to check out one of her more well known novels.
The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood
This has been languishing on my bookshelves for far too long. That’s just not fair to a brilliant writer such as Atwood. The Handmaid’s Tale has wona bunch of bookish awards (like the 1st ever Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best (Science Fiction) Novel in 1987), so it qualifies as my April read the 2016 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge.
What’s the #1 book on your Spring reading list? Have you read any of these titles, or books by any of these authors?
