Top Ten Tuesday | Slytherin (a.k.a. green) books on my TBR


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!

I love taking part in Top Ten Tuesday and I’m going to try to leave comments this week, but apologies if I’m a little quiet this week – we’ve had a family emergency so blogging isn’t quite at the forefront of my mind. Thanks in advance for your understanding!

This week’s theme is ‘Authors Who Have a Fun Social Media Presence’ but, to be honest, while I do follow quite a few authors on social media, I don’t often pay that much attention to what they’re doing? Unless Leigh Bardugo has some Netflix news for me.

So instead, as March is officially spring in my mind, I thought I’d talk about books on my TBR that have green covers, because green is the colour I most associate with spring. I’ve previously talked about the Ravenclaw (a.k.a. blue) covers on my TBR!

P.S. If there are any covers here that you think are more blue or yellow than green, you can blame it on my slight colour blindness!


Isabella of Castile: Europe’s First Great Queen by Giles Tremlett: I know very little about Isabella of Castile, but I’ve always found her interesting. I should give this biography a try!

Lady Mary by Lucy Worsley: Lucy Worsley is a British historian who’s pretty well known here for her history documentaries, and this is a children’s novel she wrote about Mary I’s childhood. I received a copy via NetGalley, so I need to get to it.

Brightfall by Jaime Lee Moyer: I love the sound of this take on the Robin Hood legend in which Maid Marian takes centre stage. Also, that cover is stunning!

Common Bonds: An Aromantic Speculative Anthology ed. by Claudie Arseneault, C T Callahan, B. R. Sanders and RoAnna Sylver: An entire anthology of speculative fiction feature aromantic characters? Yes please!

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng: I loved Everything I Never Told You, so it’s about time I read Ng’s second novel.


To Have and to Hoax by Martha Waters: This historical rom-com sounds so fun – it’s being released in April, so I’m looking forward to reading it!

Monster, She Wrote: The Women Who Pioneered Horror and Speculative Fiction by Lisa Kröger and Melanie R. Anderson: Considering horror, and particularly written by women, is a genre I want to read more of, this sounds like a book I need to get my hands on.

Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado: I need to read this short story collection – I’ve heard amazing things!

Djinn City by Saad Hossain: This novel sounds bonkers, but I want to read it. It gives me Haroun and the Sea of Stories vibes, which I really enjoyed.

The Lady from the Black Lagoon: Hollywood Monsters and the Lost Legacy of Milicent Patrick by Mallory O’Meara: I’d never heard about Milicent Patrick before I came across this book, and she definitely sounds like a woman I want to know more about.

What did you talk about this week?

    This week's topic was definitely a toughie but I like what you chose to do instead! I love these covers 😍 So many titles I haven't heard of though!
