Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring 2022 TBR

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Here are some of the books I’m looking forward to this spring. If no publication date is listed for a book, that means it has already been released earlier this month!


1. Gallant by V.E. Schwab

Why I Want to Read It: Ms. Schwab is a good storyteller.


2. Okoye to the People: A Black Panther Novel by Ibi Zoboi

Why I Want to Read It: I really enjoyed “Black Panther” as a film and want to learn more about these characters.

3. The Way Spring Arrives and Other Stories: A Collection of Chinese Science Fiction and Fantasy in Translation from a Visionary Team of Female and Nonbinary Creators  by Yu Chen

Why I Want to Read It: I haven’t read much Chinese science fiction and would like to change that.


4. Wild and Wicked Things by Fran Dorricott

Publication Date: March 29

Why I Want to Read It: I wasn’t immediately sure which classic novel this retelling was about. When combined with how many different themes were mentioned in the blurb, I was intrigued! Yes, I’m being a little vague with this reply on purpose. It’s better if you figure out certain things for yourselves.


5. Four Aunties and a Wedding (Aunties, #2) by Jesse Q. Sutanto

Publication Date: March 29

Why I Want to Read It: The first book in this series is still on my TBR. Maybe knowing that the sequel will be released soon will convince me to begin this series?

6. Gone Dark by Amanda Panitch

Publication Date: April 12

Why I Want to Read It: The comparison to the classic young adult novel “Hatchet” in the blurb piqued my interest.


7. Mutinous Women: How French Convicts Became Founding Mothers of the Gulf Coast by Joan DeJean

Publication Date: April 19

Why I Want to Read It: This is a piece of American history I know nothing about!

8.History Comics: The Stonewall Riots: Making a Stand for LGBTQ Rights by Archie Bongiovanni

Publication Date: May 3

Why I Want to Read It: I would have loved to read this when I was a teenager. Luckily, adults can still read young adult books.

9. The Foundling by Ann Leary

Publication Date: May 31

Why I Want to Read It: I am well-versed on the history of how orphaned, abandoned, and unwanted children were treated, especially if they were unlucky enough to be sent to an orphanage or workhouse.  It will be interesting to see how knowledgeable the author is on this subject. My hope is that she will do an excellent job exploring this topic from many different angles.

10. Private Label by Kelly Yang

Publication Date: May 31

Why I Want to Read It: Spring is the perfect time to read a romance novel.


  1. This is the second time this week I’ve seen Spring- that one intrigues me for sure. I love good anthologies. The Foundling looks good too. And ooh Black PAnther?

  2. I want to read more non-US science fiction, too. The Way Spring Arrives sounds like a great pick for that!

    My TTT:

  3. I picked up Aunties #1 the other day, so that one’s on my TBR. I’m intrigued about Wild and Wicked Things too.

  4. I love that the books on your spring TBR are so diverse. I’ve added some of these to my own TBR. Thanks for putting them on my radar and for stopping by my blog.

  5. Wild and Wicked Things is really slow burn but atmospheric. Gallant and Four Aunties and a Wedding are on my list too this week.

  6. Happy reading! All of these look great.

  7. I’m currently reading Wild and Wicked Things. I’m not very far in though. I can’t wait to read Gallant! I hope you enjoy all of these.

  8. Hope you’ll enjoy all of these! I’m excited about Gallant too and Ms Schwab is indeed such an amazing storyteller!

  9. Great list! Wild and Wicked Things was one of my recent reads and it was really good!

  10. I didn’t know there was a Black Panther novel – will have to check it out. Hope you enjoy these books when you get to them 🙂

  11. I really enjoyed the stories in The Way Spring Arrives, I hope you do too! I’m really curious about The Foundling and Mutinous Women. I hope you enjoy all of these! 🙂

  12. I had never heard of Wild and Wicked Things, but it’s gone straight on my TBR–thank you!

  13. I still have that first ‘auntie’ book on my shelf unread. While I think the sequel looks fun and cute, suppose I should really give book one a chance before I’d add book two to the shelf. 😉 Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland this week! Appreciate that.

  14. Hope you enjoy all of these!

  15. I hope you enjoy reading these when you get the opportunity!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

  17. Mutinous Women sounds great. I love history and I haven’t heard of these women.

    • I hope you enjoy reading about them. Isn’t it neat to discover historical events you hadn’t heard of before?

  18. I love this list for its variety. I haven’t seen these books anywhere else. I hope you find some really good ones and dig in. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    • You’re welcome. Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words! I sure try to pick a variety of books that I don’t think will be used too much elsewhere. 🙂

  19. I really need to read VE Schwab at some point!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier!

  20. I’m desperate to read Four Aunties and a Wedding! I wanted to get it for mother’s day, but realised that it doesn’t come out in paperback till much later ?

  21. I’ve seen a lot of people talk about Wild and Wicked Things. It sounds really good. I hope you get to is soon.

  22. Four Aunties and a Wedding is a great title! I hope you enjoy each book on your list!

  23. Dial A for Auntie is on my TBR for this year. I have high hopes for it. I hope you enjoy the sequel and all these!

  24. Great list! I’m waiting on my copy of Gallant to arrive and I’m so excited to read it cos I’ve heard great things so far. I hope you enjoy all these reads ?
