Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a Meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish  This week's Top Ten is all about the books on my Spring TBR.   This will be a mix of books that I've had holds on, books up for review and books that I've been waiting on for sometime.  I only have six books on my list, but I think it will keep me busy for the next several weeks.   

Dragonwatch (Fablehaven Adventure #1) by Brandon Mull
Publisher: Shadow Mountain
Number of Pages:  384
Publishing:  March 14th, 2017

Why I want to read this:  I pre-ordered Dragonwatch as soon as I heard there was going to be a new book.  Fablehaven is my kiddo's favorite series and has been read multiple times, I'm so excited for us to read the same book together again.  

30653902Miss Ellicott's School for the the Magically Minded by Sage Blackwood
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Number of Pages:  368
Publishing:  March 21st, 2017

Why I want to read this: There's a dragon, magical school and it seems that the children are going to save the day.  


Dream Magic (Shadow Magic #2) by Joshua Khan
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publishing:  April 11th, 2017

Why I want to read this:  This is cheating a bit cause I've already read an eARC of Dream Magic, but I plan to read this again for the review and just cause it's so good.  

Extraordinary by Miriam Spitzer Franklin
Publisher: Sky Pony Press
29435168Number of Pages: 268
Publishing:  April 11th, 2017 (paperback)

Why I want to read this:  Contemporary middle grade, friendship story.  I received a request for a review and this seems like a heartfelt story.  

30653853The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Number of Pages: 352
Publishing:  April 11th, 2017 

Why I want to read this:  This one is YA and is from the author of Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, which I loved.  As soon as it hit Netgalley, I requested it.  Lucky for me they said yes.    

31371695Posted by John David Anderson
Publisher: Walden Pond Press
Number of Pages:  384
Publishing:  May 2nd, 2017

Why I want to read this:   I really enjoy the voice of Anderson's characters, how he tackles tough topics but always interjects just the right amount of humor too.  I'm thinking Posted will be along the lines of Mrs. Bixby's Last Day and I can't wait to read this.  

Looks like the first day of Spring isn't until March 20th, but what's on your Spring TBR?  Feel free to leave a link in the comments.

I'm really looking forward to Miss Ellicott's School for the the Magically Minded and I need to look at Posted more. I adore the cover.

Brenda said...

I've been seeing reviews that say it's even better :)

Brenda said...

I love all of John David Anderson's books, and I do like the intriguing cover. Miss Ellicott's had me with the School in the title.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Loved seeing your list. Brandon Mull's books sounds good and the same things that appeal to you make me want to read it.

My co-author rode the bus with Brandon Mull back in middle school. :) He came up with the idea of the woods for Fablehaven in the town we grew up in. I moved to town in high school- so I didn't know him. I know the Fablehaven series is very popular, though I haven't read it yet. Glad you and you kiddo will have a common book to read together. :)

Thanks for sharing the books you want to read. I almost always like the same books as you!

Miss Elliots School looks good. I love the covers of your books. Enjoy!

Amanda K Thompson said...

You've got some fun titles on here, Brenda! I've got a copy of Dragonwatch right now; I might have to skim read the rest of Fablehaven instead of rereading them. I'm too impatient! I'd love to read Extraordinary, too.

I can't wait to read The Upside of Unrequited. I hope we both love it, and that you'll enjoy all of your spring reads. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my TTT earlier. :)

Angie Elle said...

I've seen The Up Side of Unrequited around a lot today. I hope it's as good as everyone is hoping.

So great that you get to discuss a book with your kiddo! :)

Miss Ellicott's School for the Magically Minded is SO GOOD. So. Good.

I'm looking forward to Posted too!
