An Attempt at a Spring TBR // 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 Theme: Ten Books on my Spring TBR

Unfortunately, unlike most of the world Australia has just started spring not autumn and soon will be the dreaded summer 😩 I already miss winter!

As a mood reader TBRs are not something I usually set for myself unless they’re for a readathon because I can never stick to them. However, I normally try and have a rough idea what I want to read soon-ish so it’s a bit easier to do “I wanna read these in the next few months TBRs”. There’s still a high chance I won’t stick to it though 😂




I talked about most of these books in my Anticipated Releases post, so I’ll try to keep this as short as possible! Check out that post for more details and other books I’m excited for that are yet to be released.

Michigan vs. the Boys by Carrie S. Allen || This features sports culture and deals with toxic masculinity and it sounds like it was made for me.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo || Do I even need to say anything? I’m so excited for this. It sounds so dark and genre bending. I hope it’s super twisted. I want Leigh Bardugo to fuck me up, tbh.

The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek by Rhett McLaughlin & Link Neal || I love Good Mythical Morning so much and I’m really intrigued to see what this book will be like. I’m hoping Rhett & Link’s humour and personalities transfer over. The plot sounds interesting too with a reform school having heaps of kids go missing over the years.


Now Entering Addamsville by Francesca Zappia || I loved Eliza and her Monsters and I’m really excited that Francesca Zappia is writing something that’s thriller-ish. I can’t wait to read this.



Immoral Code by Lillian Clark || I only found out about this book recently, but it sounds like it was made for me! It’s about a bunch of friends who plan a heist to steal money to help one of their friends get into college. One of the characters identifies as ace/aro and even though I’m not ace seeing a character who’s aro in any capacity means SO MUCH TO ME. It also features tech related stuff which appeals to me.

The Disasters by M. K. England || Misfit characters in space teaming up could potentially be my favourite thing ever? This book has been on my TBR for a while now (what’s new), but recently I’ve really wanted to read it! It looks like it’s going to be really fun and action packed.

Lock Every Door by Riley Sager || Even though I wasn’t a huge fan of Final Girls I’ve been seeing a lot of people talking about this book recently and saying how much they enjoyed it. I love reading thrillers in October so I’m definitely going to try and pick it up then. The concept of this makes it seem like the apartment building the main character is house sitting in is going to be a really vivid setting so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling || I’M OBSESSED WITH THIS COVER! I’m all for modern day-esque teen queer witches trying to figure things out. This is set in Salem which I LOVE. Plus there’s an underlying mystery involving a dark blood ritual. I really don’t know why I haven’t read this yet.

The Haunted by Danielle Vega || I love The Merciless and Survive the Night. Danielle Vega’s YA horror might not be literary award worthy, but it’s fun and trashy and addicting and caters to all my needs. I can’t wait to read this one next month! I love a good haunted house story. I think it’s going to be a super fun, quick and creepy read.


If you’ve read any of these books I’d love to hear your thoughts! What’s on your Spring/Autumn TBR?

Feel free to link your own Top Ten Tuesday post down below. I’d love to check it out!

I hope you’re all having a fantastic day.

  1. I can’t wait for Ninth House either! Gotta live for books that fuck you up 😂. Also, I hope Immoral Code is good! I like the sound of teenage hackers giving big money the finger 😁.

  2. I always forget that you guys are entering Springtime. It’s so confusing haha. I’m a fool for admitting this, but I completely forgot about Call Down the Hawk and can’t wait to see where Ronan’s journey takes him next. Michigan vs. the Boys sounds like my cup of tea. I am fascinated by sports culture, so any book that explores this topic has my interest.

    1. Haha, right! I wish we were with the rest of the world 😂 There’s so many books it’s understandable to forget, but same! I hope it doesn’t cause us too much pain 😂. Yes, I love sports culture so much! It’s also about ice hockey which I think I remember you mentioning you like? I’m definitely excited for it and am keeping my fingers crossed that it’s a good one.


  3. I LOVE that your spring TBR is basically the equivalent of everyone else’s fall TBR’s – YOU DO YOU, GIRL!!! 😂 I’m actually really excited for Ninth House even though I’ve heard such mixed things about it – Leigh Bardugo has never let me down so far!


    1. i feel like especially in October i embrace everyone else’s fall vibes because it’s when I read the most and it’s mostly all horrors and thrillers bc Halloween is my entire world even though Australia doesn’t celebrate it as much as i wish we would 😂 yeah im suuuuper intrigued for dark house!! i rly hope i love it!!!

      1. That’s so true!!! I always feel like I should pick up more creepy books in October but that’s usually when my exams are & I don’t think sleepless nights are really conducive to good exam prep 😂
