Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Samantha on Goodreads. This week’s topic is Spring Reads. For me that means books I am going to read this spring. I am a very moody reader, so creating any sort of TBR list is a very challenging thing for me to do, since I rarely stick to it. But I noticed that for me spring is a time for rereading books I liked and for trying out new books written by my favourite authors. So I created this list of 5 books I want to read and let’s all hope that I will manage to finish all of them this season!
Clockwork Princess – Cassandra Clare
I was doing a Shadowhunter Chronicles readalong hosted by emmmabooks last year. And I was doing GREAT. Until I got to this book. Because I remember well what it did to me last time I read it, so I just kept putting it off. And now it’s the end of March and I still haven’t read it. So I am going to finally do it this spring. I am ready for the pain now. Or at least I hope I am.
Lifel1k3 – Jay Kristoff
I bought this book as soon as it came out. I mean it’s Jay Kristoff. Of course I bought it. But it came out last year. So I guess I should finally read it. But I keep putting it off for the same reason I didn’t want to reread Clockwork Princess. I know Kristoff. And that man is RUTHLESS. So yeah. I am going to read this book. But I am sure I am going to cry like a baby by the end of it.
The Painted Man – Peter V. Brett
This is one of my favourite fantasy series of all time. It’s at the top of the list right next to The Witcher. But I haven’t read it in forever. I just bought the last book in this series, so in preparation for it I am going to reread all of the previous ones, starting with The Painted Man. Oh, how I missed this world.
And I Darken – Kiersten White
The funny thing with And I Darken is – I read it. I read it and I loved it. And almost immediately after finishing it I forgot basically everything about this book. So I can’t really start Now I Rise, can I? I need to reread And I Darken first. I am hoping I am going to enjoy it as much as I did the first time. And I hope I am going to remember it for a little bit longer.
You Die When You Die – Angus Watson
I’ve read Watson’s previous trilogy – The Iron Age. It was a perfect grimdark novel – dark, bloody, gritty and… hilarious. I had tons of fun reading it. And that’s what I hope for this time as well. I deserve some fun after all this crying, right?
So that’s it! What are you planning on reading this spring? Let me know!
