Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List



On my list are some books that are currently on my bookshelf – hopefully this list will propel me to actually read them soon:


Inheritance by Balli Kaur Jaswal
My sister gave this to me for Christmas. It’s set in Singapore between the 1970s and 1990s.

The Making of a Marchioness (Emily Fox-Seton #1) by Frances Hodgson Burnett
My sister-in-law gave me this two Christmases ago! I really ought to get to this one soon.

Franny and Zooey by J. D. Salinger
I bought this at a library book sale a couple of years ago. This is hopefully the year that it will get read!

Then, some new comics:


Edward Scissorhands #1 – Kate Leth, Drew Rausch (Artist)
First saw this on Andi’s blog. I was so excited to hear about a comic sequel to the movie!

March Book Two by John Robert Lewis, Andrew Aydin (Goodreads Author), Nate Powell (Artist)
I loved the first book and can’t wait to read this second one about Congressman John Lewis

The Sculptor – Scott McCloud
I keep hearing good things about this one!


And last, a mix of books old(ish) and new:


The Rice Mother – Rani Manicka
Set in Ceylon and Malaysia. One book I’ve been meaning to read for a few years. I’ve just requested it from the library so I’m definitely going to read it this spring!

The Bone Clocks – David Mitchell
I feel like I’ve been on hold for this book for ages! I’m almost there I can feel it! (Ok so it’s more like the Overdrive app is telling me I’m Hold Number 2 now)

We are All Completely Beside Ourselves – Karen Joy Fowler
Also something I’ve been waiting to read for a while. Finally got my copy!

The Life of a Banana – P.P. Wong
On the Women’s Prize for Fiction long list. Plus she’s from Singapore, or rather, her parents were and she was born in London.

What’s on your TBR list this spring?


  1. I have been away for six months. I saw your twitter on PP Wong and want to say that I think I’d love to read “The Life of a Banana”. It’s wonderful to have her book on the Women’s fiction prize longlist this year! Hope it goes on to be shortlisted.
