Top Ten Books On My Spring 2013 TBR list!

Kind of forgot about this yesterday, because I am an idiot. Therefore it will be here now instead. As always Top ten tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Let's go. These are books on my Spring TBR list. They are books that I am very excited about reading.

The Horologicon by Mark Forsyth
I like words, I think words that mean weird things are funny. I like words that are hard to say. I like the word serendipity because it’s fun to say. I like decapitated, because in some Tim Burton film Johnny Depp pronounces it DEE-capitated. The Horologicon is basically a book of weird, old, archaic words; like Opsony (any food eaten with bread). I need to know these words. It sounds awesome.

Moranthology by Caitlin Moran
A couple of years ago, I guess, I read a book: How to be a woman. It’s basically an autobiography with a bit of feminism and inspirations and stuff like that in. Moran is a very good writer. Her first book is about women, everything about women, told from her perspective, in the new book she gets to talk about everything else. I’m really looking forward to it, I think she’s an exciting writer.

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
I haven’t seen the film yet, but I have had the book for ages. Haven’t read it yet, so I’m hoping this is the year. I have it on my iPad, but I sort of want it in paperform. I realize that I’m a bit insane and there is no way to justify buying an extra copy of a book, but yes. I’ll get around to it.

Eternally Yours by Cate Tiernan
I really love the Immortal beloved series, and Eternally Yours is the last book, and I need it. I think that if I saw it I would just sort of squeal and bounce. Because I’m a child. I haven’t found it anywhere, so that’s a shame.

The Girl who fell beneath fairyland and led the revels there by Catherynne M. Valente
She really needs to make her titles shorter. Anyways. It’s the sequel to the Girl who circumnavigated fairyland… And I loved that book, therefore I need to read this one. I don’t think it’s come out in the Netherlands yet, so I’m considering getting it online. Oh the plights of me. I’m very excited about it. I wants it. Girl who circumnavigated was one of my favourites from last year, so I’m excited.

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
I have finally found Scarlet, which is nice. Cinder was amazing, and this is the sequel, or second book in the series rather, and I’m very excited. I’m working hard not to just pull it out of the shelves and reading it. I have other books I need to read, and well, I’m a masochist I think.

Divergent by Veronica Roth
I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about this series and I’ve wanted to read it. I just haven’t gotten around to it. So I’m excited about that.

The Diary of a Young girl by Anne Frank
In my attempt to become more Dutch since I live in Amsterdam I thought it would be good to read something important to Amsterdam. Therefore the plight and heartache of Dutch Jews in WWII. I went to see her house, which was amazing. It was sort of horrible, but it was nice to be able to see it. So I guess now I’ll read it. It’ll be exciting.

The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
So, the Hobbit came out this year and I reread the book, which was fun. I’ve read the Lord of the Rings before, but in Norwegian, because I was like 14. I thought I’d read it again and read it in English this time. So that’ll be fun. I’m excited. My sister gave me all three books for Christmas, so I’m well equipped to read it.

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
When Brandon Sanderson came in to finish up the Wheel of Time I bought one of his books to see what he was about. I never read it. Now I will though. I shall try. It’ll be fun. I like fantasy, I like Sanderson’s writing. I like him for finishing my favourite book series when things looked bleak.
