Top Ten Books on my Spring 2015 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we're listing the books that have made it to the top of our Spring 2015 TBR lists.

New & Upcoming Spring Releases:
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh — Because fairy-tale/fable retellings will always capture my interest. And is that a gorgeous cover or what?
None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio — It was delightful to hear Gregorio speak at a panel on diversity in YA lit, and I'm super curious to learn more about what intersex really is. 
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas — Again, me and fairy-tale retellings just go together so well. The hype is exciting, as is the fact that this uses aspects of two of my favorite tales: "Beauty and the Beast" and "Tam Lin."
All the Rage by Courtney Summers — To be quite honest, I'm a bit intimidated by what I've heard about how gritty and dark this novel is. But I've come to expect that from the Summers works I've read, and rape is something we do need to keep discussing.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir — My ARC is currently on loan, but as soon as it is returned, I plan on devouring it. I finding new YA high fantasy series to love is as important to me as needing to breathe. Or something like that.

Owned Older Reads:
The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison — This book has definitely made my reading lists of shame many times now. If I don't get to it within the next few weeks, it will definitely be a priority for this summer.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas — I did not like Throne of Glass, but I recently read The Assassin's Blade (neither reviewed yet) and actually enjoyed it. I figure I better continue with the series while I still have momentum.
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery — I got that adorable Puffin version over the Christmas holidays and really, really need to start this soon. I cannot wait to be finally introduced to Anne and Gilbert and Prince Edward Island!
The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss — I kind of still need to write my review for The Name of the Wind (which was fantastic and easily one of my top reads so far this year), so waiting for that before I dive into part two!
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente — I don't even want to think about how many times this book has been on here now. Hopefully making my shame public on this will persuade me to read this one at some point.

Please be sure to let me know what books you plan on reading this spring!

Amanda loves few things better than sitting down with a cup of tea and a book. She frequently stays up far too late, telling herself she just needs to finish one more page. When she's not wrapped up in the stories of others, Amanda works as a children's librarian in a public library.
