The List - Spring Reading

So, yeah, that whole #readmyowndamnbooks thing is a great idea, in theory, but Netgalley had so many shiny new books that called to me. And TLC Book Tours had a couple of books I couldn't pass up even as I'm trying to pull away from scheduled reviews. Plus, there are book club selections to be read.

What I'm saying is, my spring is pretty filled up with books I need to read once I finish the books I have going right now. I'm looking forward to all of them so it's not going to be a terrible task to do the reading (although I will have to battle The Big Guy to get the iPad as much as I'm going to need it). Here's what's on the agenda:

Miller's Valley by Anna Quindlen

At The Edge Of The Orchard by Tracy Chevalier

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

Everyone Brave Is Forgiven by Chris Cleave

Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman

When The Moon Is Low by Nadia Hashimi

A House For Happy Mothers Amulya Malady

Beyond The Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo

The Secret Daughter by Shilpa Somaya Gowda

I'm pretty excited about all of these but I'm also hoping to add in a couple of more books from my shelves and my Nook. I did, after all, recently download Notorious RBG and I'm so eager to get to that one. Of course, that's what I saw about all of my pretties when I look at them!

What are you hoping to read in the next couple of months?


  1. Thanks for enabling my addiction. These all look great!

    1. All of those new books are sure making it hard to read my own damn books!

  2. Oh man. I need to get my list together. One book I just started today is Tuesday Nights in 1980. The 80s, New York, the art scene. How could I resist?

    1. I have so many from Netgalley that I needed to keep track of - I hate when they archive before I get to them!

  3. I definitely can relate to the distraction of shiny new books, although I must make an effort to read new books and not be forever trying to catch up with last year, or the year before. So many wonderful authors and stories. At the Edge of the Orchard is the one I'm waiting on right now!

    1. Just a few pages into At The Edge of The Orchard and it's already a very different read.
