TTT: Spring TBR

Hey Readers,

Time to talk about our TBR list for the next few months. I usually talk about books individually with the Top Ten lists, but today I’m breaking it down into months.

Also I know, I cheated a bit, there’s twelve. Sometimes you just can’t bring a list down to ten.





I have a mix of new and old for March, as I’m trying to keep up with new releases. I recently did a Classic’s Spin and got My Antonia, which I was happy to get because I’ve had this book on my TBR for a long time.

1 The Best We Could Do – This Bui

2 My Antonia – Willa Cather

3 The Refugees – Viet Thanh Nguyen

4 The Zookeeper’s Wife – Diane Ackerman





There are so many book-to-movie adaptations going on in April, there’s no way I can cover all of them (sorry American Gods). I think I’m most excited for The Handmaid’s Tale, which I read in high school, but only remember a little bit of it.

5 The Circle – Dave Eggers

6 The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood

7 The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks – Rebecca Skloot

8 The Lost City of Z – David Grann





In May I plan on participating in a Read-a-thon and will finally tackle some books on my TBR reading challenge. All four of these books are apart of that challenge.

9 The Reader – Bernhard Schlink

10 Sharp Objects – Gillian Flynn

11 Unwind – Neal Shusterman

12 Yes, Please – Amy Poehler

  1. Some great reads ahead of you! My Antonia was wonderful, The Hand Maids Tale was thought provoking as was The Reader. the Refugee looks very interesting too.
    Yes Please was fun, but we didn’t get SNL in Australia until very recently, so most of the in-jokes and SNL references were lost on me in the end….

    1. I’m really excited to reread The Handmaid’s Tale. I probably read it too young, didn’t understand the weight of the subject matter.
      Interesting, did you get any of the Amy Poehler seasons, or after her time on the show?


      1. No nothing like that (although was she in Parks & Rec)? I did see a few episodes of that at one point.
        Im not really in a TV phase of my life though. Basically stopped watching anything but the news & the occasional doco once I hit my 40’s.

  2. Ooh, you have some good books there.

    The Handmaid’s Tale is one of my favorite books of all time. I hope you love it! Will you be watching the miniseries based on it that comes out next month? I am looking forward to it so much.

    My Antonia had some sad scenes, but I absolutely adored the descriptions of prairie life in it. They were so vivid.

    The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was excellent as well. I have been recommending that to everyone I know who likes to read about history, racism, and/or medical advances.
