Top Ten Tuesday: My Spring 2022 TBR

“Nine hundred and ninety-nine candles lit the Iron Shrine.”

First line in Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

Apparently, we’ve reached springtime so it’s time for another TBR through Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. As per usual, I like to take a look at my previous seasonal TBR to see how I did, and this time it was a TBR I wasn’t that confident about. It’s therefore not a huge surprise that I failed to read three out of the eight books on my winter TBR. The books in question are Sistersong by Lucy Holland, Kindred by Octavia E. Butler, and Veil of Lies by Jeri Westerson. The only one I have an excuse for is Sistersong as I have been unable to find a physical copy of that book anywhere for months. That kind of prevents me from reading it, although I guess I have to settle for the ebook if the situation continues. I have no excuse for the other two books; I just forgot to prioritize them. However, I’m not putting any of them on my spring TBR due to a slumpy reading mood, so I’ll be prioritizing books I’m really excited about.

Anyway, let’s look at the books I’ll be reading in spring!

All of these have the potential to be five-star reads, but I don’t want to jinx it, so let’s just say I’m very excited about these books! Have you read any of them or plan to? I would love to know what you think!

  1. I think you know which one of these I’m most excited for you to read πŸ˜‚ But I’m very much looking forward to your thoughts on UnWholly and Vespertine, too! I’ve actually had Vespertine in my audiobook queue for months now, but since I’ve mostly been commuting by bike recently, my audiobook consumption has gone drastically πŸ˜… So if you say it’s good, it might be worth buying the e-book or a physical copy… πŸ™ƒ

    And the other books look pretty interesting, too! Even though Northern Warth gives me extreme Viking vibes – Didn’t you say you were tired of Vikings? 😜

    1. Scribd has the ebook for Vespertine if you don’t want to buy it, and I know this because that’s where I’m planning on reading it 😁

      And you’re right. I AM tired of Vikings… but I’ve actually never read a book about them πŸ˜… It’s just that reading and analyzing the Icelandic sagas in school has made me greatly disinterested in anything Viking-related. Still, Northern Wrath is a Danish author writing in English so I figured I had to give it a shot, at least to confirm that I don’t like Viking stories πŸ˜„

      1. Ooooh, thank you for making me aware of this fact!!! 🀩 Last time I checked, they still only had the audiobook, so I’d kind of resigned myself to listening to that…

        And lololol, I’m actually hoping that maybe you’ll instead be convinced that Viking stories can be great after all πŸ˜‰ I really wouldn’t mind some recommendations because apart from my childhood hero Vicky the Viking – I don’t know how it is in Denmark, but the TV adaptation of those books is one of the most popular children’s series here in Germany 😁 – I don’t think I’ve ever read any Viking related books, either… πŸ€”

      2. They only had the audiobook for a long time and I had also figured I would have to rely on my library but then it showed up in my recommended πŸ˜„

        And I’ve never heard about Vicky the Viking πŸ˜… I’m also not sure if you should rely on me to recommend Viking stories in the future. Northern Wrath is literally the only one on my TBR…
