Top Ten Books On My Spring 2014 TBR List (to be read list)

It's odd. Even though most people think TBR means 'to be read' I usually think of it as 'to be reading'. I'm not even sure my idea is proper English, but that's usually what I call it. Okay, so today I get to list ten books that I cannot wait to read this spring. Also, you can now follow me on Pinterest too, so I plan on having more images (isn't that awesome!) on my posts.

I loved the first book in this series so much. Because of that, I am - at the same time - totally excited about this book and rather dreading it. I'm so worried that it cannot be as amazing as the first, but I'm sure I'll read it before the start of summer.

Yeah, yeah, I know what everyone is going to say. 'Why haven't you read this yet?' Well, I have finally heard enough good things about this series that I have ordered the first book. I hope all these wonderful bloggers that have encouraged me to read it is right. If not, I know who I can blame. (Just kidding!)

This book sounds totally awesome. I've been staring at it for almost a year at Goodreads and now I have finally taken the plunge. Synopsis quote that made me have to buy it: '[...]will take readers on a journey where not all heroes are good, not all monsters are evil'.

This is probably the newest book on this list, but I just adore the Beauty and the Beast story. (It was my favorite Disney fairy tale.) I knew almost as soon as I heard about this book, I knew that I would likely end up buying it. After all, there's never enough re-tellings of this fairy tale.

The first book in this series was such a fun, light fantasy romp that I am really looking forward to this one. If it's anything like the first was, it will be the perfect springtime read to take with my outside. Or to keep my attention while the warmer weather calls.

Another book that I can just hear people saying 'why has it taken you so long'. Eh, I've been interested in it for awhile but now, finally, I have been convinced. Thanks once again to people assuring me that, even though it is a middle-grade book, it's not childish.

I will admit, for as awesome as this book sounds, I'm a little curious as to how it will work for me. You see, I've never actually read a christian fantasy novel before. In fact, my full limit of christian fiction has been liited to romances. So, this will be very interesting at the least.

If you were around last Wednesday, you'd know how badly I want this book. Welp, I finally ordered it and it should be coming in anytime now. (Yeah, I know, I should have read this book long ago too, right?) Anyways, I cannot wait for this one.

Last book in the series. Oh, I am so excited. I love this series and I am sure I will love this book too. But, you know, I've been putting it off because that means that the series will be over. Oh well, at least I'll be able to reread it and read the prequels!

I'm just getting major 'read me and read me now!' vibes from where this book is sitting up there on my shelf. Of course, I am slightly worried about the whole 'sophomore slump' (I think that's the term) because the first book was so awesome and I loved it.

Any recommendations as to what I should start with? What are you going to be reading this spring?
