Top Ten Tuesday # 21 (My Spring TBR)

TOP TEN TUESDAY is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

Picking my top ten books on my spring TBR pile has proved to be a hard task. I wanna read ALL the books; if only time-turners were a thing. Where is McGonagall when needed? Anyways, Spring is my most hated season. People will find this outrageous but I suffer from hay fever and Spring can be a pain in the ass – I’m looking at you pollen, flowers and whatnot.

Also, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve decided to read ALL the fairy tales basically. I have no deep explanation for this. I feel like it. Since I’m gonna be surrounded by Kleenex once Spring comes, it might as well be good to fantasize about princes, princesses and fairy godmothers. Only, with a darker twist. We all know how gruesome the Brothers Grimm were. This year, I believe, is the 150th anniversary of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland so I guess, a re-read is in order. Oh, and A Little Princess is one of my favourite childhood movies; I was so in love with it and I didn’t know it was a children classic (silly me!) until now.

Other than that, my plan is to finally read Murakami and Atwood. Long overdue, let me tell you that. And of course, I’m continuing the whole Year of Cosmere read-a-long. Sanderson everywhere! My favourite genre is fantasy but I read some sci-fi from time to time and Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie has won every single sci-fi award. Must be good, don’t you think?

I’m cheating. I’m also including the penguin Little Black Classics. They are short and it would take me no time to fly through them. My idea: reviewing  them all but I was planning on doing a whole post with the eight I own. Would you like that?

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
