Top Ten TBR this Spring

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten Books On My Spring To-Be-Read list 

Maire by Linda Windsor
Except I read this last night and finished it this morning. But today is the first day of spring so I'm leaving it here. By the way, I loved the story. 

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
So many people are reading this. And a friend wanted my opinion on it. Still waiting for it from the library though.

Beauty for Ashes by Dorothy Love
I read another book with a very similar title and loved it, which I guess is a silly reason to be first attracted to this book. But it sounds interesting. Thus it's on this list.

Tea with Hezbollah by Ted Dekker & Carl Medearis
This has been sitting in my room for months now waiting patiently to be picked up. Good thing the church library doesn't charge overdue fines. I even started reading it yesterday. Promises to be a very interesting book.

Maid of Fairbourne Hall by Julie Klassen
I'm really looking forward to reading this. The premise is quite interesting and the first few chapters I was able to read on Google books were quite good. I'm so glad I won a copy during the fb author chat! Can't wait for it to arrive!

The Convenient Marriage by Georgette Heyer
So many people recommended this book or this author in the Goodreads clean romance group that I feel compelled to find out for myself just how good it is.

Something about Davy Crockett. Any recommendations?
I got the Disney miniseries DVD for my birthday and it made me want to learn more about this American hero. Got any suggestions?

Sixty Acres and a Bride by Regina Jennings 
Ok, I'm really cheating this time, it was on my list but I read it over the weekend so before spring officially arrived even though the weather has been spring-like for weeks. Here's the review

A Texan's Honor by Shelley Gray
It just sounds interesting. And the cover is rather cool. Plus trains remind me of Europe and of Grampa a bit. Plus I have a Netgalley copy waiting for me.

Mercy Come Morning by Lisa Tawn Bergren
This is a Blogging for Books ebook so I'd better read it :-) And I think it will give a good look at what caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease is like.


    1. You will definitely love The Hunger Games (or else - well I'm not sure what I can threaten someone over the internet with)... I'm not as familiar with the other books in this list. Thanks for sharing!

    2. I loved The Hunger Games - and can imagine the long wait now at the library since the movie is coming out in a few days. I hope you requested all 3 books in the series, because you won't want to wait :-)

    3. Thanks ladies! I'm currently #230 on the waiting list but the library has almost 200 copies in the system and a bunch more ordered so hopefully it won't be too long.
      Good idea about requesting the other books. Guess I was waiting to see how I liked the first one (sorry manda-rae) but I'll go request them now so I won't have to wait so long. :-)

    4. Hey! I've been reading your reviews off and on when you post them on Facebook, and think your blog is really cool.

      Better than Hunger Games: Frank Peretti's new novel 'Illusion' just came out last week. IMHO, this is the best full-length novel he's ever published. If it isn't objectively his best, then it's certainly my favorite. It doesn't have an overtly Christian message like 'The Oath,' 'The Visitation,' or 'Monster', but it's a story about Christians.

      1. Thanks DK! I appreciate the encouragement. I've never read any of Frank Peretti's books. Always thought they looked too spooky. But maybe one of these days I'll pick up one of his books. :-)

    5. Ooh, I've been meaning to read Georgette Heyer for a very long time. Guess I ought to do that soon!

      I had to Google a couple of these, just because their titles and covers were so beautiful. :)

      Great list!

      1. Thanks Jenna! I was a bit rushed today else I would have included some links. I agree some of the covers are quite beautiful.
