T10T: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books On My Spring 2019 TBR. This spring I’m also doing monthly TBRs, so you might see some of these again soon.

Furyborn by Claire Legrand


I can’t believe this fantasy book about morally gray women exists and I still haven’t read it? I also can’t believe that two Claire Legrand books came out in 2019 and I… haven’t read either, even though they’re both queer and both of them sound exactly like something I’d love. I need to fix this.

A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole


I plan to read this and A Prince on Paper (I have an ARC!) in May. After loving Once Ghosted, Twice Shy, I can’t put this off any longer.

All of Us With Wings by Michelle Ruiz Keil


Another ARC I have! This is about a bisexual latinx girl in post-punk San Francisco. I liked the short story this author wrote in the Color Outside the Lines anthology and I can’t wait to get to this.

Wicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popović


I really want to complete this duology with Fierce Like a Firestorm, but to do so I have to reread this one because I remember nothing. On one hand, I can’t wait to be back into this world, on the other, I couldn’t stand the main character, so I’m not sure about how it will turn out.

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco


Another reread! I really want to know more about this antiheroine and her journey to her almost-villainess status. And yes, this means I’m willing to go through this slow-paced book again even though I’m not completely sure I liked it the first time around.

Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa


I’m not sure how I’m going to feel about this because I disliked some of Kagawa’s previous books (The Iron King and its sequel) but this involves magical foxes (I think it’s about a kitsune and it’s ownvoices for the Japanese representation) and as you might already have heard, I love everything fox-related.

A Taste of Honey by Kai Ashante Wilson


This is really short and I’ve had it on my e-reader for almost an year. I don’t know why I haven’t read this m/m fantasy romance yet, maybe because I don’t hear many talk about it and forget it exists, but it sounds perfect.

The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman


I’m not sure what this is about and I’m fine with going into it not knowing anything but the fact that it’s going to be a somewhat Raven Cycle-like atmospheric story involving many bisexual characters. I don’t own it – my request for the ARC was denied – but it’s one of my most anticipated releases, so I don’t want to put it off for long.

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo


I know. I often say that the Shadow and Bone series is my favorite YA fantasy series, but this has been out for months and I still haven’t read it (and of course I got spoiled for everything, because people can’t tag anything, can they). I’m slowly making my way through the first trilogy and maybe this will happen in less than three months?

The Candle and the Flame by Nafiza Azad


This one comes out this May and I have an ARC I want to read before release date, which means that I will end up reading The Candle and the Flame in Spring if everything goes according to plan. I’ve heard it’s an atmospheric, slow-paced desert fantasy, and I always love those. (Also, look at that cover!)

Have you read or want to read any of these?

  1. I really liked Shadow and Bone, so I’ll definitely have to get to King of Scars at some point. I started reading The Devouring Gray today and so far it’s pretty good. I liked Furyborn, although I think it would have been easier for me to follow if I hadn’t listened to it on audiobook.

    I hope you like these!

    1. I’m glad to hear you liked Furyborn! I think the main reason I always put Claire Legrand’s books off is how many mixed reviews they get.
      And I hope The Devouring Gray continues being good!


  2. All of Us With Wings and The Devouring Gray are two of my most anticipated releases! I feel like they both have the potential to be kind of weird and atmospheric and I hope they are, cause that’s my thing.

    I also want to reread The Bone Witch at some point. It’s one of those books I loved the moment I was done reading it, but I didn’t always enjoy reading it. It was so slow! But Tea’s so wonderful!

    1. I want to get to The Bone Witch because I know that if I don’t, the sequel won’t make any sense, and I really want to read it.

      And I hope both All of Us With Wings and The Devouring Gray won’t disappoint us! I hope I’m able to get to them soon and see if they’re really as atmospheric as I want them to be.


    1. I was annoyed by the pacing and some of the choices the author made near the ending, but the characters and world were really interesting (and the writing was so beautiful!) so I want to try again and see if I’m able to get through it and continue, since I’ve heard the sequel is really good.
      And thank you!

  3. I have ARCs of All of Us With Wings and The Candle and the Flame (STILL NEVER GETTING OVER THAT COVER IT’S SO PRETTY) and I hope you like them! I’m excited to see what you think of the Reluctant Royals series because I’ve heard nothing but good things yet there’s still one part of me that’s not sure whether to read it or not. Also, I recently read The Devouring Gray and I was just Shocked that basically everyone was bisexual. Happy reading ❤

    1. Thank you!
      I think the cover of The Candle and the Flame is my favorite YA fantasy cover of 2019? So pretty, I hope the inside is just as good.

      …basically everyone in The Devouring Gray is bisexual? That’s great, I really need to read it.
