Hi! Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday. Each week, Jana @thatartsyreadergirl posts a prompt, and we all make a list based on that prompt, a similar prompt, or pick a topic of our own for the list. This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. This week, we’re doing a spring cleaning freebie, and because I want to read over 10 books this spring, I decided to do this post this week, and talk about books I want to read in May and June before the summer next week. I’ll put them in sections because that’s easier to navigate.
Pre Orders (Physical)
1- Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo (King of Scars # 2)
This is my first of four pre-orders I plan on starting when they get here. I’m so looking forward to this book after enjoying King of Scars last month. I’m also sad because this is the last book in the Grisha Verse.
2- Fearless (Fearless # 1) by Mandy Gonzalez
I pre-ordered this book because it looked like a fun book. I enjoy Middle Grade, and I think I’ll enjoy this mystery. All I needed to hear was theatre ghost, and that the kids wanted their show to go up, and I was sold. Mandy Gonzalez is a Broadway star and I love her work on the In the Heights Cast recording. Early reviews rate this book 3-4 stars and say that it is perfect for any fan of theatre. This makes me thrilled.
3- The Chance to Fly by Ali Stroker and Stacy Davidowitz
This is another Middle-Grade theatre story by another Broadway Actress. I’ve enjoyed her for years and I’m so hyped for her book. Early reviews say this is 3-5 stars, and I am so excited to read this.
4- Kate in Waiting by Becky Albertalli
You all know I love Becky Albertalli. I am so excited to read this story which also happens to be about theatre.
5- Love & War (Alex & Eliza #2) by Melissa de la Cruz
I’m rereading this trilogy and Hamilton and Peggy for a ranking post of all the Hamilton Historical Fiction I’ve read.
6- The Hate you Give by Angie Thomas
Yes, I will finally read THUG next month!!! I’m so hyped to read it.
7- Pride by Ibo Zobi
A P&P retelling?! I’m so hyped. The reviews of this are really positive and I’m very excited to read it. I read the first five chapters when it came out, and I loved it so much.
8- In the Neighborhood of True by Susan Kaplan Carlton
This is Historical Fiction to mix in with the hard-hitting contemporaries I have for next month. I’ve been anticipating this book for years, and I’m so hyped to read it. I’m half Jewish, and I love seeing Jewish rep in books. I think I will love this novel.
9- That Way Madness Lies (out 3/15)
I put this here, but I might put another novel here if I finish this. This is a YA Contemporary Shakespeare anthology, and it has my name all over it. My hype for this is so real.
