Tuesday Five: Spring Titles

This week's topic from The Broke and the Bookish is about books on the Spring TBR (to be read) list. I don't actually put books on my TBR list until they're actually in my possession (otherwise it's too sad when I don't get to read them), so instead here's ten books coming out this spring (for me that means March-May) that I think look really good and am hoping I get to read. Also, I'm making this a top five instead of a top 10 list because that seems more manageable and lets me highlight the books I'm really excited for.

1. Nothing Special
Geoff Herbach
Pub: May 1st
This is either a sequel or companion novel (not sure which) to Stupid Fast, which won the Cybil's Award this year and which I absolutely absolutely loved. It was so funny and so full of heart; I'm confident that this one will be similarly wonderful and I can't wait to read it. Also, sidenote, that cover is so great.

2. The Selection
Kiera Cass
Pub: April 24th
A futuristic dystopian that's sort of like The Bachelor? Count me in! Even though I could only stomach one season of the show, I had a total love-hate relationship with it that makes me think this book could be ridiculously awesome for me. Also, that's not sarcasm: I'm legit v v excited for this book.

3. Second Chance Summer
Morgan Matson
Pub: May 8th
This book sounds incredibly sad, but it also features a family at the center of it and I'm hoping it'll be the good sort of sad story -- more like A Walk to Remember and less like Dear John. If that even makes sense (which it probably doesn't). Anyway, I'm definitely on the look out for this one.

4. Being Friends With Boys
Terra Elan McVoy
Pub: May 1st
I'm such a fan of McVoy's writing style and the premise of this book hits all the right marks for me. I can't wait to read it. Also, I love the "food" theme her last three covers have had going for them. (Also also, there might be a giveaway of this book happening on the blog nearer its publication date, so be on the look out for that!)

5. The List
Siobhan Vivian
Pub: April 1st
This is the only book on this list that I've ordered already -- and I can't wait for it to arrive so I can read it! I've only read one of Vivian's earlier books (her debut, A Little Friendly Advice), but I loved it and the premise of this one is so smart and something I'm really interested in. So I can't wait.

What spring titles are you looking forward to?

  4. The selection & the list sounds great :)

    1. Yep. I know I have enough books to read as-is, but I'm a little jealous of everyone whose gotten an ARC of The Selection.

  5. I can't wait for Second Chance Summer either, and I get what you mean with the good sort of sad, A Walk to Remember was definitely that!

    1. Ah, yay! I wasn't sure anyone else had even heard of Second Chance Summer! Woot!

  6. The List looks really good, I've had to add that one to my TBR list today as well!
