To Read List: Spring 2016

What with one illness and another knocking me about in March, I’ve not got through as much reading or writing as I’d hoped. But I’m annoyingly optimistic as usual that things will start to improve so I’ve prepared myself a list of books gathered from my massive TBR pile that I will aim to work my way through.

My first plan is to finish reading the Stefan Mohamed at the top of the pile.  Before reading Ace of Spiders I wanted to re-read the amazing Bitter Sixteen, so I will review both of those once I’ve finished.

 

But next on the list:

Some books that I bought earlier in the year and haven’t been able to read yet, but desperately want to, include The Sleeping Prince by Melinda Salisbury, which I am expecting to emotionally destroy me as much as The Sin Eater’s Daughter did.  I also want to read Asking For It by Louise O’Neill, which I know will be another very emotional book so I’m going to wait until I’m well and truly depressed already – no point ruining a good mood!

I have quite a few books waiting for me on NetGalley that I’m eager to get on with, including Patrice Lawrence‘s Orangeboy which I am very excited to read.

As well as all these new books I’m also hoping to get through some more classics as part of my challenge to myself to read more books by female authors this year, I’m still reading The Memoirs of Emma Courtney by Mary Hays and after that I want to read Villette by Charlotte Bronte, a book I started to read about 20 years ago and never managed to finish.

It should be a busy few book months, but I’m always on the look out for more recommendations – what are you reading at the moment?  What’s at the top of your TBR?
