Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring!
Description Top Ten Tuesday is a weakly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week a different topic comes up and bloggers list their top ten books in that category. I love a good list...I've always said that. That's practically my catchphrase.

Top Ten Books on Your 'To Be Read' List for Spring A couple of mine have yet to be released but most are ones which have been out for AGGGGESSS and I just haven't got round to them! Sorry lonely neglected books.
10. 'Snow White and the Huntsman' by Lily Blake Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring!Release Date: 1st June It is a tad weird to have a book based on a film rather than the other way around and I'm not sure how OK with it I am. However, the film has been getting lots of positive feedback and I can't resist a fairytale...in any form! 






9. 'Some Kind of Fairy Tale' by Graham Joyce Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring!
Release Date: 21st June Again, anything fairy tale related and I am on it. I think this looks really sweet: 'Some Kind of Fairy Tale is a very English story. A story of woods and clearings, a story of folk tales and family histories. It is as if Neil Gaiman and Joanne Harris had written a Fairy Tale together.' Woop.


8. 'I Am An Executioner: Love Stories' by Rajesh Parameswaran
Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring! Release Date: 1st April I love the title and I love short stories so I am really looking forward to this: 'In I Am an Executioner, Rajesh Parameswaran introduces us to a cast of heroes—and antiheroes— from the lovesick tiger who narrates the unforgettable opener to an elephant writing her autobiography'.  Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring!7. 'The Balloonist' by MacDonald Harris
I think the cover and the exploration/adventure aspect of this book look really lovely.






6. 'The City of Dreaming Books' by Walter Moers

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring!'Optimus Yanspinner inherits from his godfather an unpublished manuscript by an unknown writer and sets off to track down the mysterious author, who disappeared into Bookholm--the so-called City of Dreaming Books. Yarnspinner falls under the spell of this book-obsessed metropolis, where an avid-reader and budding author can find any number of charming attractions--priceless signed first editions, salivating literary agents, and for-hire critics. But as Yarnspinner pursues the trail of the missing author, the darker side of Bookholm begins to unveil itself--cold-blooded book hunters, fearsome cyclopean booklings, sharp-toothed animotomes, and of course, the Shadow King, whose howls rise from deep beneath the city at night. Will Yarnspinner survive his quest into this world where reading is a genuine adventure?' What is not to love! 



5. 'Specials' by Scott Westerfeld Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring!
I know, I know this has been out for so long that it's almost a time before lots of you were born but I only recently read 'Uglies' and 'Pretties' because they didn't really appeal to me. I find them quite average but I have to finish the trilogy (or quartet now?) and see how it ends!



4. 'Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kind on Earth Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring!
I have had this on my shelf for quite a while and need to read it soon. I read a lot of graphic novels and, even though this one is a classic, I never seem to be in the mood for it. I will be this Spring though I can feel it!



3. 'Eragon' by Christopher Paolini  Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring! I keep meaning to read the 'Inheritance' cycle but, again, I have all the books I've just never gotten round to reading them. I know the film got slated but I think the books get a better review so I am looking forward to some dragon filled fun this Spring! 2. 'The Long Earth' by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter
Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring!Release Date: 21st June I love Terry Pratchett more than a lot of things and his new book looks so incredibly good. I like that it's a new world as well, as much as I love Discworld. I like a good collab book too so that'll be really interesting. YAYS.





1. 'Insurgent' by Veronica Roth Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to Read this Spring!
Release Date: 1st May Yep I read Divergent. I likes me some of that. So I would likes me some  of Insurgent now to find out what is in store for Tris and the lovellly Four. I know it's gonna be good. I just know it.
