The Spring TBR! The Most Ambitious Reading Plans Around! (someone stop me)

I wouldn’t say I was dragged by my hair, kicking and screaming into a reading slump by The Cruel Prince trilogy, per say… but I haven’t felt the same since.

I mean… I have heart pain and I currently can’t trust any of the other books on my shelf (why did I unconsciously buy anything and everything that people called stabby… I set myself up)

BUT thOSe books quite litERalLy STABBED ME IN THE HeART!!!!!!!!

And I bet they laugh at me from their perch upon my book shelves…

*ominous cackling pauses suddenly, a “shwing” sounds as they unsheathe their daggers*

As the Winter-ness of the world begins to fade and Spring pops into our lives, I can’t be the only one whose motivation comes back full force, kicking me into action quite literally, and suddenly I have the energy to do a million things in one day.

I remember those days…

Ah, so young.

I can’t believe I used to have blog posts scheduled and 2 books being read per week.

The Magic of Spring.

Now, I don’t usually follow TBR’s. I tend to be firmly glued to my mood reading roots.

I am super determined to get a lot of reading done, getting some of these books off my shelves, into my brain and then back on my shelves again. They would rub it in the faces of all my unread books, gloating about their freshly turned pages like the heathens they are.

And also… the last few years I have scraped at the end in an effort to reach my Goodreads goal. I don’t really know why? It’s not the end of the world if I don’t reach it?

But I want to try a little bit…

There are a lot of books I’ve said I’d read “as soon as I finish my current read!”

Reader, do I need to tell you that those exact books have remained unread? Untouched and not thought of since that day of mentioning?

Do I?

Do I need to speak such shame here?



Is me setting a TBR also a way of introducing new books to you in an attempt to drag you down into the “my tbr is far bigger than the size of my house and is threatening to crush me” void of fear, you ask?

No! I would never not do that to you guys!

To make this whole “mood reader is diving into TBR making” transition easier, I’ve made a list of book I want to read this spring and lowered it to 12 books over the next 3 months.

Starting now (Mid March) to the end of June, I aim to read 4 books per month. And since I’m starting now, I get a head start!

All 12 of these books are books that I already own. And if I complete the 4 books allocated to whichever month then I could do the smart thing and read ahead, completing the total 12 books faster than I planned.


Or, I could take the forbidden path and read any new releases that come out as well as the four books. That way, I’ve read more than 4 books in one month. Genius.

*future me cries because it was probably not genius*


This is a long intro…


Clicking on the book covers will take you to Goodreads, so FILL UP THOSE TBRs FOLKS!!!

One of the books on this list is a companion novel (different story, same world) so I will link it to the first book, which was amAZING BY THE WAY! Oooo, it’s like a game. Guess which one it is….

Those are my grand reading plans as Spring unfolds across most (*confused stares at Austrailia*) of the globe!

Here’s hoping that I can achieve all this reading and so much more! I have a lot of ideas for blog posts too, but apparently you actually need to sit down and write them for them to actually appear on the screen??

Why didn’t anyone tell me this before?

Let's Chat

What books are you currently reading?? Do you have a Grand Plan for your Spring Reading?? What Spring book releases are you excited for?? Do you feel literally 3x more inspired and motivated during the warmer seasons too?

  1. All of these books look wonderful and exciting. I really hope you end up reading them and enjoying them! I don’t really have a set TBR because every time I plan one I end up ditching it, lol.

    1. I’m hoping I love them too! They all sound like books I’ll enjoy but I hope they deliver! I’m always sad if I end up not enjoying books I was excited for XD
      To be honest sticking to TBRs is quite hard?? How do professional TBR followers do this all the time?? How do they not stray to other books? What magic do they posses that we don’t?? T 0 T


  2. There are some awesome books on your list! I loved Aurora Rising and can’t wait for Aurora Burning and that sexy space elf on the cover 😍 I’m currently reading Warcross and absolutely LOVING it! It has sucked me in but it’s gonna crush me, I feel it 😅 Hope you enjoy all of these reads!

    1. I died when I saw the cover for Aurora Burning! You’re talking to a ghost. I have a feeling that after I read Aurora Rising I’m going to have an even stronger reaction to that book cover… SPACE ELVES FOR THE WIN!
      Oh my gosh! Let me know how you feel about it when you’re done (or I’ll stalk your blog until there’s a review) (< that sounds like a threat… but it's not… I think?)!
      I'm down for some heart crushing, let me boost it up the TBR real quick! XD
      Thank you! I hope I will too! ❤


  3. Oh no not a slump. Ugh. But maybe spring will help?? there’s something about the nicer weather, for sure… anyways Through the White Wood looks great. I thought Warcross was awesome- hope you do too!

    House of Dragons- wow. what a cover.

    1. I know *sobs*
      I definitely am feeling better already! We have sunshine today which is nice! XD but it’s still kinda cold. But not like a “set everything on fire to warm myself up” kinda cold, it’s more of a “snuggle up in a blanket with a hot drink” kinda cold!
      The first book, Beyond a Darkened Shore, was awesome! Vikings! MAGIC! Norse and Pagan gods/goddesses! GIANTS! Through the White Wood is a companion novel, but separate to the main events of book 1 (although apparently the characters from book 1 appear briefly). But it definitely sounds just as (if not more) awesome!

      Thank you! I think I will like it! I’ve read one book by Marie Lu before and found it easy to get into, so something as epic sounding as Warcross is bound to draw me in easily!

      House of Dragons followed the checklist of things that would make us buy it… it knows Greg. It has come for our money! XD


  4. Okay, you have some awesome books on your TBR! I am so excited to see the Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender! I loved that book so much. I’m hoping to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone & A Curse so Dark and Lovely soon!

    My TTT!

    1. Ahh! It sounds so good, but I’m so glad to hear from someone who has read it! I haven’t seen it flying around the blog ‘o’ sphere at all!
      I actually have 2 of Leslye Walton’s books?? But didn’t realise it?? XD
      I just read the synopsis and was like “I DIG THAT! GIMME!” XD
      EEEeeeeeeee! Our reading plans are similar then! Let me know if you liked them when you’ve read/are reading them!! ❤

      1. Yeah, I never saw that one too much and I don’t know why! It’s such an underrated and amazing book. I haven’t read anything else by the author but I should. haha

        Yes, I will and let me know how you like your read too!! :):):)

    1. Thank you! ❤ I like setting them… but I'm hesitant in setting them because I don't know if I'll be able to read as much as I hope to. XD
      I'm going to try to read as much as I've planned, but if I don't I won't be upset by it. 😀
