TTT: TBR Spring Books 2017


Top Ten Tuesday: What books top my to-be-read pile of books this Spring.

The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas
A YA book I've been seeing on a lot of lists.

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
Set in Africa with the roots of slavery forming the framework of the stories. I've started it but had to put it on the back burner until I am done with my current audiobook.

Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War by Mary Roach
This book is this year's selection for Pierce Reads 2017!

Dear Bob and Sue by Matt and Karen Smith
Matt and Karen visit all the National Parks and write to their friends about their experiences. 
A book club selection.

We Are OK by Nina LaCour
This is one of the first four-starred reviews of 2017. I love LaCour's writing and hope this one is as good and the reviews state.

This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel
Another upcoming book club selection.

History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera
Another 2017 YA title. This author got a lot of love last year. Will this book live up to the hype?

    1. I read STIFF and laughed my way through it. I started GULP but had to return it to the library and haven't gotten back to it. Now I will try GRUNT and hope to return to GULP.

  11. Most of these titles are new to me. My husband went on a Mary Roach binge and listened to all her audiobooks; he said Grunt was pretty good. I hope you enjoy them all!

  14. I'm struggling with Homegoing, although Eileen and Debbie love it so far. I'm depressed by it. It's also one of those books that is in short story format, although the people are related to each other.

    1. I'm struggling, too, though I had to set it aside for LaRose. I'm nearly done with that audiobook and then will refocus on Homegoing.
