#TopTenTuesday: Spring 2023 Possibility Pile

We’re back with another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is Books on My Spring 2023 To-Read List

As a mood reader, it’s rare for me to actually stick to TBRs or even the possibility piles that I come up with but as a list lover, I do enjoy making these lists. I haven’t been reading as much lately so there are actually *tons* of books that I need to read and that I really want to read ASAP. I think for this spring possibility pile, I’ll look at five ARCs and five books from my backlist and in no particular order…

If Only You by Chloe Liese
Hungry Ghost by Victoria Ying
Untethered Sky by Fonda Lee
Last Sunrise in Eterna by Amparo Ortiz
A Botanist’s Guide to Parties and Poisons by Kate Khavari

The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang
The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty
Daughter of the Deep by Rick Riordan
XOXO by Axie Oh
Anatomy by Dana Schwartz

Have you read any of these books or are they also on your TBR or possibility pile? What books are you hoping to read this spring?

    • YES! She does! It’s a novella actually but I’ve been seeing lots of great things about it so I’m super excited to check it out 😍 I’m excited but also scared to continue the series with Dragon Republic. Gotta gear myself up to feel all the feels! πŸ˜‚ I hope you enjoy the conclusion to the trilogy!

  1. You have several here that I’m anxious to get to. The Kingdom of Copper and XOXO are the only ones I’ve read so far. I struggled with the first half of The Kingdom of Copper but ended up enjoying it overall. XOXO was a winner for me, too.

    • Honestly, I feel you with the beginning of KoC. I enjoyed the ending of the first book a lot more than a majority of the beginning as well and I thought I might feel differently about the second book but I’m getting those same vibes. I think I just need to stick with it and not be distracted by anything else! πŸ˜‚ I can’t wait to read XOXO cos I’ve heard great things, too.

      • Well, if you feel the same way I did about the first two then maybe you’ll feel the same way I did about the third book. I thought it was perfection from start to finish!


    • There are just too many books to choose from, Greg! And who knows what the mood will dictate. πŸ˜‚ I’m looking forward to Daughter of the Deepβ€”I hope the story is just as fun as the cover looks!


    • The Dragon Republic is the second book in her Poppy War series and I really enjoyed the first book but it’s quite a lot more brutal than Babel (which I also loved)! I would definitely recommend it but I’d also caution reading the content/trigger warnings too (just in case). πŸ™‚


    • I don’t know why I keep putting off Kingdom of Copper cos I really enjoyed the ending of the first book. I just need to stop being distracted! πŸ˜‚ I can’t wait to read her new book thoughβ€”I’ve heard so many great things. I hope you enjoy it!


  2. I loved so many of the backlist books! Anatomy is one that’s on our list, I believe. I think Julie has it too!! I hope that you get to all of these and love them. I know how our mood reading is though. πŸ™‚

    • YES! We need to get sorted on our buddy reads cos we have so many and sadly have done so few this year so far πŸ˜‚ I’ll message you! And if Julie is up for a buddy read of Anatomy I’m so down to start it maybe next month or at the end of this month?

    • That’s how I felt about the first book and when I finally read it last year I thought I’d immediately pick up the second book but I keep pushing it off now, I don’t know why πŸ˜‚ I hope you enjoy the third book whenever you get around to reading it!


  3. I need to catch up on the Bergman Brothers series. I’m woefully behind, but I’m looking forward to this one, too! Happy reading, Dini!
