Top Ten Tuesday: Spring Reads

Will Grayson, Will GraysonToday's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, is all about books we are looking forward to reading this spring. Some of these are new, some just new to me, but I can't wait! (I intend on having a much longer reading list after seeing everyone else's lists.)

1. Bright's Passage by Josh Ritter. Crazy Camper might be his number one fan (he is a musician) and Sweet Tea and I have been with her to a concert. Check out his music! And this book got lots of buzz (Stephan King really liked it, no big deal for a first book or anything).
2. Wilfair by Alysia Gray Painter. Forever Young Adult's review sold me. Plus, it has the best blurb ever
"A late-blooming nineteen-year-old runs a posh hotel next door to a shy guy and the little motel he oversees. Strange things happen, adventures are had, feelings are felt, and cheese dip is eaten." Feelings! Cheese! Yes!
3.Graceling by 
4. The Hangman's Daughter by escendent of the Kuisls, a famous Bavarian executioner clan? heck ya.
5. Will Grayson, Will Grayson, by John Green and David Levithan. I am approaching fangirl territory with Green, and I don't mind a bit.
6. Shadows on the Moon by Zoë Marriott.  Anna's review at Anna Reads sold me. Multiple identities and revenge and magic and epicness. Sounds right up my alley. 
7. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by 

Graceling (The Seven Kingdoms, #1)WilfairBright's PassageThe Hangman's DaughterShadows on the MoonThe Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (Fairyland, #1)

(What is that random space? blog formatting, why do you torment me?)


  1. I hadn't heard of many of the books on your list, so thanks for sharing! I will definitely be adding Bright's Passage to my TBR list. :) Check out my list at Bookwanderer!

    1. If Josh Ritter's book is anywhere near as moving as his lyrics, this should be a great read!

  2. You know, everyone loves Graceling but me. I didn't like it at all. I'm always the odd one out, haha. I hope you enjoy it more than I did. I haven't heard of the rest of these, but they sound interesting!

    Here's my top ten!

  3. I am a Green fangirl and Will Grayson, Will Grayson is great. I really enjoyed it.

  4. I think Graceling is spectacular! And I am total John Green fan and somehow have yet to read Will Grayson..

  5. I'm a total John Green fangirl. I really enjoyed Will Grayson, Will Grayson. I still haven't read Graceling either, I must change that!

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  6. Great list! I love Graceling (though I think Fire is better), and am enjoying Girl who Circumnavigated Fairyland currently! I had no idea Josh Ritter wrote a book, I'll definitely have to add that to my TBR list!

  7. Say what? This is dang exciting. And I think I just might have a review copy of "Wilfair" tucked up my sleeve (which would be weird, really, since it is an ebook).

    Feel free to find me over at graypainter.com. I'll be the lady devouring all the cheese dip while she peeks up her sleeve for wayward ebooks.

    Thanks for the blurb shout-out, too!

  8. Amazing list and I'm totally right there with you.. I'm almost at fangirl level when it comes to John Green books.
