TTT is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl (it was originally created over at The Broke and the Bookish) and she provides great prompts week in and week out to get us talking about books! Today’s theme is pretty straightforward – it’s books on my Spring 2021 TBR. I’ll be including a mix of new ARCs in my collection, and older books I’m determined to get around to soon. And yes I snuck in a few more than ten – there are a lot more than ten books on my spring TBR…
I was very excited to get approved for this ARC. I’d read this solely based on how much I loved Daisy Jones and the Six, but luckily the synopsis of scandal at a glamorous party in 1980s Malibu sounds brilliant too.
Another ARC I’m super excited for – Erin Kelly never disappoints, and this has been described as ‘Black Swan’ meets ‘Killing Eve’. I’m all in.
Mulan meets The Song of Achilles in this debut, apparently. Set in 1300s China, this literary fantasy novel is out this summer, and it looks like it could be something special.
Jojo Moyes’ latest novel has been on my TBR a little while (since before its release in 2019) so I’m really hoping to get to it soon. It’s a change of pace from the Me Before You series, an epic historical fiction about a group of women and a travelling library in Depression-era America.
I don’t read many rom-coms, but this author has received a lot of hype, and I’m trying to make a conscious effort to read more feel-good stories, as a lot of the fiction I read is quite dark.
I have been meaning to try this author for years – she’s so so well-respected and loved. I picked this family drama up on a Kindle deal and I’m hoping to get to it soon.
This is another one I’ve had for years but the Netflix series just dropped, so maybe I actually need to read it now! I enjoy this author’s thrillers, and this one about a match-making service using people’s DNA sounds intriguing.
I’ve had this book for a while, and after recently reading and loving Kazuo Ishiguro’s Klara and the Sun, I’m keen to read another literary take on AI.
Maybe reading about a mysterious virus breakout during a global pandemic is a little morbid, but this debut about a virus that only affects the male population has got me intrigued.
I previously read The Bone Clocks by this author and wasn’t quite sure I understood the hype around him, but I’m giving him another try with this latest release. It’s about a fictional band in the swinging sixties, so it sounds pretty fun.
Another novel with a musical theme. I’ve never come across this author before but it seems like she has a lot of fans! This book has 1960s Motown, romance and mafia, and I’m here for it.
One of those books that was everywhere last year and I somehow didn’t get to, despite the fact that I love a bit of gothic horror. I really hope to get to it this spring.
