Top Ten Tuesday | My Spring 2021 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!

This week’s theme is all about the books on our Spring TBR! There are a bunch of spring releases I’m really looking forward to getting to, and some other books I’d like to review for Wyrd & Wonder this year…

Heartstopper: Volume Four by Alice Oseman: I love this graphic novel series, it’s so sweet, and this next volume is out in May!

Fireheart Tiger by Aliette de Bodard: This novella has been compared to my all-time favourite novel, The Goblin Emperor, and I’ve heard wonderful things about it, so it’s about time I read it.

Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo: Of course this one is on my TBR! I’m hoping to read it before the Netflix series starts and I’ve got my fingers crossed that the characters I love will be okay.

The Unbroken by C.L. Clark: I received an eARC of this political fantasy from NetGalley and I’m so excited to read it!

A Master of Djinn by P. Djèlí Clark: This is Clark’s novel debut, a follow-up to his novelette A Dead Djinn in Cairo, which is out in May. I’m really looking forward to seeing Fatma el-Sha’arawi and this alternate 20th century Egypt again.

Witches Steeped in Gold by Ciannon Smart: This Jamaican-inspired fantasy is being released in April and it’s about witches so, naturally, I want to read it.

Jade City by Fonda Lee: This novel has been on my TBR for too long and I’ve heard nothing but praise for it, so I need to read it!

The Councillor by E.J. Beaton: I received a copy of this debut from NetGalley and I am so excited to read it. I love political fantasy and this one sounds fascinating.

All the Murmuring Bones by A.G. Slatter: This is another novel I received via NetGalley, this time from an author I’ve read before. Slatter is an Australian author and I am very keen to read more fantasy by Australian authors this year! I currently live very close to the coast, so I’m looking forward to reading a mermaid book.

Skyward Inn by Aliya Whiteley: I have a soft spot for stories set in inns and taverns, and I’m very intrigued by the sound of this sci-fi novel. I received a copy via NetGalley, so I’d like to get it read and reviewed!

Which books made your list this week?

    Super excited for Rule of Wolves as well! I want to read it before the show as well but I’m rereading the other books and I’m only at Ruin and Rising so we’ll see. I don’t want to rush through a reread of King of Scars and Rule of Wolves just to read it before the show. I don’t think the show will have anything connected to that duology, just the Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows. But we’ll see!

    Reading a book that might crush a reader’s heart is never fun… hope all of your characters from Leigh’s books end up in the best place. 🙂 I’d like to think I’d enjoy Shadow & Bone, but honestly am not sure because I’m not a fantasy fiction reader. That said, I’m hopeful. Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland, Jess!

    Great list, Jess! I actually had A Dead Djinn in Cairo on my list today and I’m looking forward to checking out this author’s work cos I’ve been seeing their name mentioned everywhere lately! I also didn’t realise that Dead Djinn in Cairo is less than 50 pages long 😂! Hope you enjoy all these books and happy reading ❤️

    I want to read a bunch of these too. I think I have to wait longer for A Master of Djinn in the UK, but I am so looking forward to a full length story with Fatma el-Sha’arawi!

    I love Aliya Whitely, I am a bit behind with her books so haven’t ordered her new one…yet!
