Top Ten Tuesday: Spring 2012 Releases I’m Anxious to Read

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is ten books we’re anxious to read this spring. You might see a trend in my books below (just by glancing at the covers).

I’m anxious for warmer weather, though not Texas heat-wave hot, and some sweet love stories. I have a few unexpected titles thrown in, Divergent, Timepiece and Crazy, but those are because a) I love me some Veronica Roth and Myra McEntire and b) I’ll need something to break up the love stories so that they don’t all blur together and I can fall in love with the dreamy boys in each book.

Summer doesn’t technically begin until June 20th, so I listed books that range from March through mid-June. (And YES, I cheated by including Where it Began because spring doesn’t begin until March 20th. Ha! Oh, well!)

      Me, too, Ginger! It’s been on my TBR list for what feels like forever. And I’m glad we’ll be picking up some of the same books (ahem, INSURGENT!) so we can talk about them!

  1. April Books & Wine says:

    I’m about to finish Where It Began. It’s a decent book although the protagonist, Gabby, is really hard to like/connect with at first, but the whole storyline is interesting.

    OH MY GOODNESS INSURGENT! I am sooooooooooooo pumped for that book.

    Also? Really looking forward to Second Chance Summer.

    And yeah, pretty much all of the books on here!

    • Magan says:

      April, I can’t wait to read your review for Where It Began to see if you like Gabby more once you’re done. It’s always so hard for me to be so excited about a book and then to be let down. Thanks so much for your comment! 🙂

    • Magan says:

      Yes, you should definitely check it out, Nicole! I just finished reading it and it was a good read. Not up there with Divergent for me, but still a good read. 🙂

  2. Daisy says:

    I love all the summer romances on your list!! 🙂 It’s just something about early spring that makes me crave those as well, though they didn’t make my list.
    EVERYONE has Insurgent on their list! I still need to read Divergent, but I already pre-ordered Insurgent because I’m trusting the blogosphere to be right about how awesome Divergent is 🙂
    Happy spring reading!

    • Magan says:

      Daisy, I’ve noticed Insurgent being on everyone’s list, too! So much excitement about that book. I was oooohing over a post Veronica Roth put up today about whether Four will be called Four or Tobiah in Insurgent. I got goose bumps from the post. Oh, the anticipation is killing me!

  3. Hollie says:

    I swear, I’m going to lose the plot if I don’t read Second Chance Summer as soon as it’s released. I need my Morgan Matson fix! The same goes for Insurgent too, I’m (im)patiently waiting for May 1st so I can read this!

    • Magan says:

      Hollie, I’ve never read anything by Morgan Matson before. This will be my first, but good gosh does it look like the perfect one to start with! 🙂 AND YES! COME ON INSURGENT RELEASE DATE! I need to plan to have the whole day to sit and read!

  4. Hannah says:

    This is such a fabulous list! None of them made my top ten but that’s just because I’m trying to limit myself to catching up on old reads. However, I’m dying to read The Selection, Second Chance Summer and My Life Next Door. I’d include Insurgent, but I still haven’t read Divergent! Fail. Although the descriptions for all sound good, I’m mostly in love with their covers haha! I’m usually really guilty of judging a book by its cover 🙂

    • Magan says:

      Hannah: That’s such a wise idea. I wanted to go “browse” Barnes and Noble SOOO badly today, but didn’t. I should not buy any more books for a while. I need to get caught up on all the awesome ones I have here! AND YES! READ DIVERGENT ASAP! 🙂

    • Magan says:

      Thanks, Mands! I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump, so this list really made me excited for all that’s coming! It’s going to be a great spring for reading!

    • Magan says:

      Julie! Thanks for your comment. Timepiece is the sequel to Hourglass by Myra McEntire! You should definitely check out Hourglass – I LOVED IT! 🙂

  5. Tabitha says:

    There are so many great books coming out this spring… It’s so exciting! I can’t wait to read Second Chance Summer and The Selection. Great list! (:

    • Magan says:

      Christina! I so agree! I love the cover of MLND. I can’t wait to read it! 🙂 I hope I get to all of these too. If I do, it’ll be a fantastic spring!

    • Magan says:

      Amanda, YES! Definitely a NetGalley member. We love it; it’s been really awesome to get books that way…and, um, it’s nice to have the downloads because then I don’t realize how many books I have to read. Haha. So many books on our bookshelves and sitting everywhere in my house! 🙂

  6. Ashley @ Ashley Loves Books says:

    YES, YES and YES to this entire list. Ours overlap quite a bit, there are just so many awesome books coming out soon! I’ve got Unbreak My Heart from NetGalley in my queue, and I desperately want to just skip it ahead of all the others haha.

  7. Jasmine Rose says:

    My Life Next Door is high up on my list too :]
    Where it Began looks really good too. And of course, I’m really, REALLY looking forward to Insurgent and The Selection.
