The List - Spring Reading

I missed the Top Ten Tuesday the other day where bloggers were encouraged to list the books they're hoping to read this spring so I'm  jumping on the bandwagon here.

I'll spend the first couple of weeks wrapping up my chunksters, Outlander  and  The Goldfinch and have a couple of TLC Book Tours on tap. Then I'm going to throw in a few books for review and try to finally get to my mysteries.

1. Casebook by Mona Simpson for a TLC Book Tour

2. The Frangipani Hotel by Violet Kupersmith for a TLC Book Tour

3.  Paganini's Ghost by Paul Adam for Mystery May

4.  The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty

5. The Kings and Queens of Roam by Daniel Wallace

6. There Once Lived A Girl Who Seduced Her Sister's Husband And He Hanged Himself : Love Stories by Ludmilla Petrushevskaya

7. The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson

Silly me, I'd thought to list ten. Then I remembered spring is really only about two months long. This will do. I'll save those other books for will be  here before you know it! What are you looking forward to reading in the next couple of months?


  1. I am on the Casebook tour too. Will be starting it soon.

  2. That is quite a list. I have only read the Larsson book but am intrigued by the long title by Petrushevskaya.

  3. Interesting list - I want to read The Husband's Secret and The Frangipani Hotel. Number 6 has one of the more unusual titles I've come across so I look forward to your review of that! Congrats on reading Outlander. I know everyone loves it but the size and the time travel have never really grabbed me. I look forward to hearing what you think of that one too!

  4. I'd like to read The Husband's Secret. Good luck getting through the chunksters, The outlander series is still in my TBR. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you will link up 3 posts with my #SmallVictoriesSunday that just went live for the week!

  5. The Frangipani Hotel looks good. The only one I have read in your list is The Husband's Secret.

    Haven't stopped by in a while. Nice to see what you have been up to.

  6. The one about the love stories with someone hanging themselves sounds fascinating! I look forward to that review!

  7. I read The Husband's Secret over the summer and really liked it! Enjoy these Spring books!

  8. I posted my list this morning and was overly optimistic with 11 books! I focused on books I already have in my possession, so The Husband's Secret didn't make the cut, but it will certainly be on my summer reading list.

    If you need another title, I strongly recommend Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger. If you read it first, you can come down to Lincoln on April 27th and get it signed. :)

    Good luck!

  9. Excellent list! I've seen good things for The Frangipani Hotel.
