Good morning, fellow bookworms. We have reached Tuesday and that can only mean one thing: it is time for Top Ten Tuesday! A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, who each week assigns a new topic to inspires us to create a top ten list based on it. This week’s topic is:
Spring 2020 TBR (or whichever season it is where you live)
There are many wonderful books awaiting me on my bookshelf and Kindle, however here are ten books I am really hoping to get to over the milder, lighter months of March, April and May:
1. Lady Susan & The Watsons by Jane Austen – After recently reading Sanditon, I hope to finish off this collection of Austen’s shorter/unfinished works soon.
2. Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel – The award-winning, historical-fiction about Henry VIII’s right-hand man, Thomas Cromwell. A book that has been bumped up my TBR list after featuring it in my 10th Dec 2019 TTT list.
3. The Problem of Pain by C S Lewis – Having treated myself to a boxset of Lewis’ Christian work, the first book I fancy reading is this argument pain is not sufficient reason to reject belief in a good and powerful God. Perhaps apt in the current climate.
4. Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett – The next book I have, chronologically, from Pratchett’s fantastical Discworld series. It has been far too long since I read my last Discworld: Reaper Man last year.
5. The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick – A time slip, one of my favourite genres, from a new-to-me author, that I downloaded on a whim. Another book that I have bumped up my TBR list after featuring it in my 10th Dec 2019 TTT list.
6. Madam, Will You Talk? by Mary Stewart – After loving The Moonspinners last summer, I am eager to read another of Stewart’s modern, suspense classics, and in fact this is her very first one published.
7. Jane Seymour, The Haunted Queen by Alison Weir – The third book from Weir’s ambitious six-book series, Six Tudor Queens. I loved the previous books about Katherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn.
8. The Testament of Loki by Joanne M Harris – Looking forward to thus sequel after enjoying Harris’ refreshing, re-imagining of the Norse Gods and legends in The Gospel of Loki and Runemarks.
9. River Rising by John A. Heldt – The first book in Heldt’s latest Carson Chronicles series, which I look forward to starting after finishing Heldt’s previous, time-travelling series, American Journey.
10. Calysta and the Beast by Joanna Alonzo – The first book in new-to-me author, Alonzo’s The Sacred Scarred series, which is a modern-day, Christian retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
Now over to you: Have you read any of these? Are there any you think I should read first? What books do you hope to read this spring?
