March 19, Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s TTT topic is Books On My Spring 2019 TBR

What a topic. I guess the whole bookcase is on my TBR. I am a mood reader and not sure about which one I will pick up next. But I will make an effort and put most anticipated books that I want to read this spring.

1. Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend

      Another hyped middle grade book everybody is talking about. The second book is already published and the third out will be out soon, so it is time to join all the fun.

2. The Thirst by Jo Nesbø

     The last published book from Harry Hole series by Jo Nesbø. I am an avid fan of Jo Nesbø, but still did not read this one. I guess I am saving it.

3. Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak

 I am greatly intimidated by this huge classic novel. I must be a difficult read and I keep finding pretexts not to pick it up.

4. The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter
   Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father—Pikeville's notorious defense attorney—devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.

5. Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye

     Jane Steele by A Gothic retelling of Jane Eyre.

Like the heroine of the novel she adores, Jane Steele suffers cruelly at the hands of her aunt and schoolmaster. And like Jane Eyre, they call her wicked - but in her case, she fears the accusation is true. When she flees, she leaves behind the corpses of her tormentors.

6. Career of Evil by by Robert Galbraith

Though I am not a big fan of this series, I still have a book. So I want to finish it as soon as possible and unhaul the whole series. I do not have the final book due to really poor reviews.

7.  The Lollipop Shoes by Joanne Harris

     Another long postponed sequel to a favorite book. Hope it will live up to the first one int he series.

8.  Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

     The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand. .
9.  Midnight Sun by Jo Nesbø

     Jon is on the run. He has betrayed Oslo’s biggest crime lord: The Fisherman.
Fleeing to an isolated corner of Norway, to a mountain town so far north that the sun never sets, Jon hopes to find sanctuary amongst a local religious sect.
Hiding out in a shepherd’s cabin in the wilderness, all that stands between him and his fate are Lea, a bereaved mother and her young son, Knut. But while Lea provides him with a rifle and Knut brings essential supplies, the midnight sun is slowly driving Jon to insanity.
10.  Inés of My Soul by Isabel Allende
    Born into a poor family in Spain, Inés, a seamstress, finds herself condemned to a life of hard work without reward or hope for the future. It is the sixteenth century, the beginning of the Spanish conquest of the Americas, and when her shiftless husband disappears to the New World, Inés uses the opportunity to search for him as an excuse to flee her stifling homeland and seek adventure. After her treacherous journey takes her to Peru, she learns that her husband has died in battle. Soon she begins a fiery love affair with a man who will change the course of her life: Pedro de Valdivia, war hero and field marshal to the famed Francisco Pizarro.


  1. Wow, Ines of My Soul sounds like a good read.

    My Top Ten Tuesday post.

  2. Jane Steele is one I really want to read, too. :)

  3. I bet Dr. Zhivago would be a super interesting read. I have trouble too though taking the plunge with classic chunksters...

  4. Dr. Zhivago sounds interesting. Course there are a few other classics I'd like to read too... Les Miserables, War and Peace... one day.

  5. I hope you love all these! I need to read Nevermoor, too.
