Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Spring 2023 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish post hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week we are given a different bookish, and sometimes non-bookish topic to explore. This week we are sharing the books on my spring 2023 TBR. I don’t normally tend to set specific TBRs for each season. However, I recently went through my large TBR and picked out several books that have been unread for many years. I want to get through these books in the next couple of months, which makes them perfect for a spring reading list.

Books on my Spring 2023 TBR

Watership Down by Richard Adams. I have been meaning to read this book for YEARS and spring seems like the perfect time to do it. After all, this is the time of year that we see wild rabbits running around. I did watch the original movie and the Netflix series, so I’m familiar with the story, however, I have wanted to see the original story for some time now. If I don’t read this one during spring I may very well get rid of it.

The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang. This is the only book on the list that I don’t already own. However, I hope to pick up a copy soon and dive into this one. It sounds so good and I’ve seen plenty of positive reviews for it.

Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines. My friend sent me this book a while back and I really want to read it soon. I think the concept of being able to pull objects out of books is quite intriguing and I’m interested to see how that will be used in the book.

Celtic Folk & Fairy Tales by Joseph Jacobs. A book I picked up not long ago on a whim. I’m not the type to read about fairy tales, but this one caught my eye in the store and I couldn’t say no.

Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree. I am way behind on reading this one compared to most people. However, I am excited to dive in and see exactly what a story about an orc opening a coffee shop is all about.

The Lost World by Michael Crichton. I read Jurassic World a few months ago, so it’s time to dive into the sequel. I am mostly interested to see how different it is from the movie? since the first book was vastly different but in a good way.

Clara’s Kitchen by Clara Cannucciari & Christopher Cannucciari. Another of my more recently acquired books. I love her YouTube channel and look forward to delving more into her recipes and the stories she shares about the Great Depression. Of course, I will also need to try some of her recipes.

Wool by Hugh Howey. Admittedly, I know next to nothing about this bool. However, it came highly recommended by a friend and so I picked it up.

The Great Passage by Shion Miura. Another book I know nothing about but sometimes diving into a book blind is a good thing.

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. I have had this book on my Kindle for about as long as I have owned it – so a good 10 years. It’s relatively short so I shouldn’t have any trouble reading it this spring.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what books are on my Books on my Spring 2023 TBR. What books do you plan to read this spring?


  1. I’m reading Legends & Lattes now and really loving it.

      Glad to hear you are loving it. I have heard so many good things so I really need to make it a priority read.

  2. The Poppy War sounds good.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

      It really does.

  3. Legends and Lattes is supposed to be fabulous. I hope you love it.

    1. Author

      Yes, I’ve heard so many positive reviews about it. Thanks, I’m hoping it will be good.

  4. I really enjoyed WOOL when I read it. For some reason, though, I never continued on with the series. I need to go back and re-read WOOL, then keep going. I hope you enjoy it and all your other picks!

    Happy TTT!

      Glad to hear you enjoyed Wool. I hadn’t heard about it until recently but my friend highly recommended it, so I’m sure I will like it. I have a habit of reading first books in series, loving them and then forgetting to keep going with the series.

  5. Watership Down is one of my all time favourite books, I’ve lost count how many times I’ve read it! Kehaar and Bigwig are my faves 🙂 Like the look of Wool and Libriomancer too – good luck with Heart of Darkness, definitely a wise move to approach Conrad’s writing with a shorter novel!

      That’s great to hear you love Watership Down that much. I loved the movie so I don’t know why I haven’t read the book yet. I do think Bigwig is a fantastic character. Libriomancer certainly sounds interesting. I’m not very familiar with Conrad’s works so now you have me curious about his other works and why its best to start with a shorter book.

  6. I’ve always wanted to read Watership Down too. I really should sometimes soon.

    1. Author

      It’s definitely a book you should read. Hope you are able to pick it up soon.

  7. The only one of these I’ve read is The Poppy War and sadly I wasn’t a fan, bit too gruesome and violent for me, but I hope you enjoy it more. I too am curious about Legends and Lattes because I’ve been seeing it around so much recently.

      It’s a shame you didn’t enjoy The Poppy War but not every book is for everyone.
