My Spring TBR List

Spring is almost here and I thought I would share 4 books I really want to read soon. I’ve not been reading very much recently so if this is all I get through before summer I’ll be okay with that.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I shouldn’t go into bookshops because I always end up buying something. To be more specific I always end up buying a book because I think it’s pretty. Which is what happened with this book. But I had heard that this is similar to The Night Circus which I enjoyed, so I wanted to give it a go. Actually now that I’m thinking about it I liked and didn’t like The Night Circus. Maybe I should read that again.

The Pigeon Tunnel by John le Carré

I have actually started reading a little bit of this. It’s John Le Carre’s memoirs. It’s actually really interesting to see how he got into MI5. He also writes about some of the problems that come from being a spy and also writing books about spies. If you like his books this is one to check out.

Invisible Planets by Ken Liu

This is a collection of short speculative stories written by Chinese authors. Some are award winning stories and others are Ken Liu’s personal favourites. The interesting thing about reading sci-fi written by Chinese authors is it’s very different compared to what you would get from Western authors. If you haven’t read The Three Body Problem yet you really should because it’s great.

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

Funny story, every year a friend and I send each other a book for Christmas. This past Christmas we both sent each other the same book, this book. No idea how that happened because we hadn’t even talked about it. Maybe it was the Force or something. It arrived the day before Carrie Fisher died so it didn’t feel right for me to read it at the time, but I think enough time has passed that I really should read this.

Thanks for reading.

    I have The Princess Diarist on my TBR too. I’ve a long weekend coming up so I’m hoping I’ll get to it then.

    I really didn’t like the night circus, think I gave it a 2.75 stars, my lowest rating since I stared giving my reads a rating 🙈😂 however I couldn’t resist picking up caraval because it’s just too pretty 😍

    I’m about to go to Singapore, where I’m gonna just snatch everything from bookstores (lol), and Caraval is on my list as well, although I don’t know when I’m gonna read it since I already have a long TBR for 2017, and TBR for March is also already settled…
    And you got me interested in Invisible planets as well, looks like I’ll go buy that one as well…

    Caraval has been on my TBR for ages, been waiting for it to come out, but can’t splurge on a hardback at the moment. At the mercy of the library! The Princess Diarist is also on my sooner rather than later TBR. Can’t wait to hear what you think of them.
