Top 5 Wednesday: Spring Reads

Hey all! We're back with another Top 5 Wednesday and I'm super excited about this month's prompt: spring reads. Today is the first day of spring and, while it's cold and rainy where I live, I can only hope that the weather soon looks up! I cannot wait to sit outside and read, take walks to the beach, and just not be cold all the time. This week's prompt could be interpreted in many different ways but I decided to talk about the top 5 books that I want to read this spring! 

I have so many TBR books and books that I want to reread, but for now I'm just going to stick with the books that I haven't read yet! Being at college, my choices are limited but the books I do have with me are books that make up my immediate TBR and all of these choices today are from those! I did cheat a little bit and included books of the same series as one, but we'll just not talk about that! 

1. Strange the Dreamer & Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

I have had Strange the Dreamer on my TBR since it came out. I was lucky enough to find a copy of the UK first edition with sprayed edges and I know that a book this beautiful has to have a beautiful story. A lot of my friends on bookstagram absolutely love this duology and I figured it's high time that I read it!

2. Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare

I finished Lord of Shadows in February and it was a bit of a let down but also a punch to the heart. Besides my packed monthly TBRs lately, I think another reason I haven't read this book yet is because I'm scared of what's going to happen to all of the characters I love. 

3. Hunting Prince Dracula & Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco 

I have had HPD for almost two years now and EFH for almost a year and I haven't read either of them yet. The shame! I absolutely loved the first book in the series and since the final book is coming out in the fall, I know I want to be prepared for it. I just can't wait to revisit these characters and the story that I love so much!

4. Kingsbane by Claire Legrand 

Words cannot express how excited I am for Kingsbane to release in May. I loved Furyborn and I've heard that Kingsbane is even better so I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy! I'm hoping to get an arc of it for my personal collection but whether that happens before or after release date is up in the air. I just know my heart is going to be ripped out by this book but I am so excited for it nonetheless. 

5. Invictus by Ryan Graudin

I have had an arc of this book since May of 2017...almost two years...and I still haven't read it. I've brought it with me to college every semester with plans to read it but somehow it keeps getting pushed back. This book sounds like one that I'm going to enjoy but I think I've built up so much internal hype and expectation for it over the years that I'm subconsciously nervous that it won't live up to what I'm expecting. Still, it's time for me to finally read this since it sounds so amazing!

Thanks for reading!
