Today’s Topic for Top 10 Tuesday featured by The Broke and The Bookish is Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List but I have altered it to Spring as I am on the other side of the world:

Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List

  1. The Secrets of Yashire by Diamante Lavendar
    Emerging From the Shadows is a young adult fantasy adventure that occurs within the framework of a young girl’s subconscious mind. The main character, Brianna, finds herself thrown into a world called Yashire where she is forced to deal with circumstances that are threatening Yashire’s existence. Against her will, she is sent on a journey to restore unconditional love back to the land while also contending with the evil force in the land, Zolan.
    The Secrets of Yashire
  2. The Unraveling by Laurel Wanrow (The Luminated Threads: Book 1)
    In 1868 England, the competition to control agriculture is fierce…and nobody says no to Derby’s industrial magnate. Except Annmar Masterson. The nineteen-year-old rejects his improper advances and instead takes an advertising position on a farm. She discovers the isolated valley is home to gifted species—including animal and plant shifters—who hide their lives from the rest of England. The blue threads only she sees on their clockwork machinery prove her heritage is rooted with theirs, but their world is so different that Annmar doesn’t know if she’ll ever belong.
    The Unraveling
  3. The Covenant by J.E. Plemons (Last Light Falling: Book #1) Continue reading

Top Ten Series I Loved But Never Wrote A Review For

  1. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (8 very large books)
    The Outlander Series is a sequence of multi-genre novels and shorter works written by Diana Gabaldon that feature elements of historical fiction, romance, mystery, adventure and science fiction/fantasy. The stories focus on two main characters, Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser, and their adventures in the 18th and 20th centuries. It has now also been made into a television drama series Outlander on Starz.
  1. Graceling Realm by Kristin Cashore (3 books)
    Graceling is a young adult fantasy novel by Kristin Cashore, and her literary debut. The book earned a place on the Publishers Weekly Best Books of the Year for 2008 and received generally favorable reviews. It was followed by a companion book entitled Fire, and a sequel, Bitterblue. Fire takes place about 35 years before Graceling in a nearby land. Bitterblue takes places six years after Graceling, in the seven kingdoms.
  1. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead (6 books) Continue reading
