TTT: Books On My Spring TBR

TTT Top Ten Tuesday The Book Wars

This is a meme by The Broke And The Bookish and the topic is pretty self-explanatory, yes? This is the one where we make lists and shake our heads at the lies we tell ourselves. Go.

(Can never go wrong with a Dean gif, can we? All credits to the TV show. I just enjoy looking at him.)

The List (which I probably will disregard one day into spring. When does spring start anyway and has anyone told the cherry blossoms they’re not supposed to bloom right now?)

  1. The Crow by Alison Croggon (which I am currently reading. It is almost spring right?)
  2. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner (this I am also currently reading. There is a readalong going on in case you didn’t know.)
  3. The Girl with Ghost Eyes – M. H. Boroson (I have this out from the library and it’s looking more and more wonderful as I look at it.)
  4. Man Tiger – Eka Kurniawan (Indonesian writer that I haven’t read yet. And the synopsis of this one is so awesome.)
  5. The Rook – Daniel O’Malley (I have the sequel to review but I have forgotten all about the first so reread this one I will.)
  6. Short Stories for Kids and Teens by Contemporary Shanghai Writers (This needs to be reviewed and I’m looking forward to reading it like whoa.)
  7. Flamecaster – Cinda Williams Chima (Yep, yep.)
  8. Booked – Kwame Alexander
  9. A Drop of Night – Stefan Bachmann
  10. It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel – Firoozeh Dumas


  1. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
  2. Gotham Academy Vol. 2 by Becky Cloonan, Brenden Fletcher, and Karl Kerschl
  3. The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy by Jill MacLean
  4. Boxers and Saints by Gene Luen Yang
  5. At least five titles from this list by Debbie Reese
  6. More of Almost Human by Walking North



  1. A Spy in the House by Y. S. Lee: Biracial lady detective in Victorian England. Sign. Me. Up.
  2. Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan: Nafiza and I are meant to co-review this by April. *nervous dancing* I don’t even know when I can get to this. *continues dancing to the washroom*
  3. Tippoo Sultan’s Incredible White-Man-Eating Tiger Toy-Machine!!! by Daljit Nagra: That title won me over. Plus, Indian poet!
  4. Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner: I heard the audio play is very lovely!
  5. Tiffin: Memories and Recipes of Indian Vegetarian Food by Rukmini Srinivas: I think Twitter (Nafiza?) brought this to my attention and it’ll be nice to have a book I don’t have to read cover to cover. I will, however, seek out every non-recipe bit to read in one go.
