Top Ten Tuesday #2 - Ten Books At The Top Of My Spring TBR List

This is my second Top Ten Tuesday post, hosted by the amazing Broke And The Bookish, and I can't tell you how much fun I'm having with these.  You may notice a lot of the same books on this list as last week's Top Ten Series I Want To Start, but just roll with it.  They're worth repeating. ;)

Top Ten Books At The Top Of My Spring 2013 TBR List
 
"Stormdancer" by Jay Kristoff - Even though I have this one sitting on my nightstand, just waiting to be picked up and probably finished before the first official day of Spring (March 20th, I looked it up), my excitement for this book is such that it deserves to top two TTT lists.  In a row.  Why?  Two words: Japanese steampunk.
 
"Shadowfever" by Karen Marie Moning- The fifth (and last) book to what is shaping up to be my favorite urban/paranormal fantasy series ever.  I have a very unhealthy obsession with one mysterious-as-feck Jericho Barrons.  The only reason this doesn't top the list is because, well, c'mon.  Japenese steampunk...duh.
My Jericho Barrons.  Now, go.  Flock to the bookstores, my pretties.
 
"The Archived" by Victoria Schwab - Because a world in which our dead are hidden in an underground archive is a world I never want to live in.  But would love to read about.
 
"Boundless" by Cynthia Hand - Christian, Tucker, Christian, Tucker....  And some angels and stuff.  But mostly Christian and Tucker.
 
"Jellicoe Road" by Melina Marchetta - If I had a dollar for every 5-star review I've seen for this book, I'd have enough to money to feed my book addiction for a yearSix monthsAt least a month.
 
"A Memory Of Light" by Robert Jordan - The final chapter to the series that started my love for epic fantasy, and further kindled my love for books.  I don't want to see it end, but damn do I want to see how it goes down.
 
"Shatter Me" by Tehereh Mafi - Both my inner cover whore and my inner Rogue (the chick who can't touch anyone without draining them from X-Men) demands this of me.
 
"Pivot Point" by Kasie West - There are two futures for me; the one in which I read Pivot Point this Spring, and the one in which I don't.  I choose the one in which I do.  Bad things happen in the one in which I don't.... *shudders*
 
"Stolen" by Kelley Armstrong - I need more Clay/Elena.
 
"Delirium" by Lauren Oliver - I can think of no fewer than three people who will hurt me if I don't finally read this one.  Or, you know, text their displeasure to me.  Either way, I'd rather just read it. 
 
So there you have it, my top ten must-reads for the season!  Want to tell me how awesome my list is, what I'm missing, or what's on yours?  Do so in the comments!

    1. There's no way Boundless can jerk more tears than Hallowed. ... Is there?

      I'm really hoping I've got a Spring of amazing reads ahead of me. I'm so glad you loved so many on this list!

  2. Stormdancer = a-freaking-mazing! And girl, you had better hurry up and read Delirium! I mean really, lol. I'm still wanting to read Shatter Me and The Archived. And I totally forgot about Pivot Point!

      We have GOT to do a read-along with at least one of those three books, then!

    1. Yeah, I've heard a few people didn't absolutely love Delirium. I'm kind of wary about it since I'm not huge on dystopian stories. I don't hate them, but I don't usually love them, either, unless they're really well done. I think I'll at least like it a little, though, even if I don't love it.

      The Archived has been one of my most anticipated reads for months now, before it was even officially released! I have got to stop putting it off and just get it.

  5. I'm not the only one who hasn't read Delirium! I can feel a little less like a loser now! Thanks :)
    The rest of these I haven't heard much about though, so I'm going to have to do some research. Dum dum dummmm...

    1. Omg, I swear I said the same thing on someone else's list that had Delirium on it! Ha! We should form a club or something.

      Seriously, you should look into some of them! I haven't read them yet (obviously), but my blogger and goodreads feeds have been blowing up with 5-star ratings for most of those books!

  6. You have a fantastic list! STORMDANCER was one of my top ten faves last year, it is AMAZING. I still have to read THE ARCHIVED and hope to do so soon...

    Here's my Top Ten.

    1. Thanks, Tammy! I'm trying to hurry and finish at least one of the books I'm reading now so I can start Stormdancer, it's just teasing me on my nightstand right now lol. I'm seeing so much Archived love/excitement, it's making me want it even more!

  7. Arrgh, I have read very few of those & a lot of them are now calling my name saying come this way my pretty, we'll have fun!

    Japanese steampunk, I have to know more immediately about this! Next stop good reads for some research :-)

    Delirium, slow start but beautifully written, a worthy candidate.

    1. Lol it also has griffins, ninjas, and a dystopian background. :p

      I'm really hoping I like Delirium as much as most people seem to have. I can be...picky. Which isn't a good thing, I think I'm turning into a book snob. *shudders*

    1. Haha I've got a pile of books vying for that position. :p But Delirium is soon to be one of them, so it won't be long.

  11. Delirium is SO good! I've been waiting to read the second one until the final book was out (mostly because I didn't want to have to wait again!)... guess I don't have to wait anymore! Definitely read it. It's good.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! And no worries about forgetting Cinder. You can always read it anyway. It's AMAZING! :)

  12. Pivot Point and The Archived both look excellent. I've heard Jellicoe Road is amazing from a number of different people, as well.

As you may or may not know, life is eating up way too much of my spare time right now, so pretty please don't hate me if it takes me a few days to get back to your wonderful comments. I read each and every one from my phone, and they always make my day. <3
