Top Ten Tuesday #19: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR


Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl.  We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!

This week’s (March 19th, 2019) topic is: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR

Since there are two of us running this blog (Melanie and Mireille), we’re going to break these memes up between us and each pick five!




The Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
I’m so excited for this one, I plan on reading the arc very soon.  I adored Enchantment of Ravens and Margaret is coming to the TBR and Beyond group is July!

Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman
I mean what is there to say? Illuminae series is one of my faves of all time – so glad this dynamic duo is at it again!

The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala
Another author that will be visiting the TBR and Beyond group (in May) and the book looks freaking badass!

Descendant of the Crane by Joan He
Is there a more beautiful cover than this one? I think not! I can’t even go into how excited I am for this and I am living with all the various new fantasy books we are getting with various cultures.  Thank you to the book gods! Joan will also be visiting the TBR and Beyond group in May!

Finale (Caraval #3) by Stephanie Garber
This is my most anticipated book of the year.  I know the series is fairly polarizing but I’m in the love group and I am dying for this book to get into my little grabby hands.  I ordered the special edition box that Owlcrate Book Box is doing and I’m so happy!

Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
Really excited about this one since a lot of people I know have read it and compare it to Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse.

The Waking Forest by Alyssa Wees
The cover is so gorgeous and everything about this story is appealing to me, plus I think it’s a standalone which I’m really happy about.

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Umm Beauty and the Beast retelling, need I say more?

The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala
I am so here for this one. It’s been from the start on my most anticipated list, I’m just so excited for it.

Descendant of the Crane by Joan He
Yet another one that sounds amazing and they my friends are raving about. Can’t wait for it.


What is on your Spring TBR?

  1. Love that a B&TB re-telling makes your list! I haven’t read this one, but did recently add it to my shelf, so hopefully it’ll be an entertaining read. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  2. I’m so excited for The Sorcery of Thorns and The Tiger At Midnight to come out, they both sounds so good! I just finished reading The Waking Forest and it was so different from every other YA fantasy I’ve read. I love that it’s a standalone too! I hope you’ll enjoy it! 😊

      1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it, I did too! It was so refreshing and engaging to read. I get why it’s so polarizing, but I think we need more strange, unusual, polarizing books. It keeps things interesting 😊

  3. Awesome list! The Sorcery of Thorns and Descendant of the Crane are both really high on my most anticipated list over the next few months and I’m currently reading Wicked Saints. I really enjoyed A Curse so Dark and Lonely, it was one of my first books of the year. I hope you enjoy it too!

  6. So many great books! I’m so looking forward to Aurora Rising, Sorcery of Thorns, The Tiger at Midnight, Wicked Saints and Descendant of the Crane as well. And A Curse So Dark and Lonely is on my TBR as well. So much to look forward to 🙂


  7. I’m excited for Wicked Saints and Aurora Rising also. Sorcery of Thorns looks so good too, but I doubt I’ll have a chance to read it this spring. That will be on my summer TBR for sure. 🙂

  9. Oh yes, DOTC has the most beautiful cover! I love books that don’t feature “real-life things” ahaha if that makes sense. Just books covers that seem animated/painted/drawn?

  10. This is such a good TBR for both of you! I’m very excited to read The Waking Forest as well, it sounds like such an atmospheric read, I can’t wait 🙂 and I’ve only heard great things about Descendant of the Crane, I hope you’ll enjoy it. Happy reading! 🙂

  11. *flail* So many great books on this list!

    Melanie, I’m looking forward to Aurora Rising and The Tiger at Midnight, too! They sound fantastic! I really need to start the Caraval series, too. I’m so behind lol.

    Mireille, A Curse So Dark and Lonely looks great, and I’ve seen a lot of positive reviews for it! I’m definitely looking forward to Wicked Saints, too. I mean, who isn’t at this point? xD

    Hope you both enjoy the books when you get to them!
