Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
It’s the start of a new season and that means it’s time to take a look at the books I want to read most during the Spring months as they roll past. I’m trying really hard not to buy any new books for a little while until I manage to empty my Kindle of the 27 books it currently holds, so this list of ten is going to come from those books available to me that way. The top ten books for my Spring as determined by my Kindle if you will. Will these be the next ten books I read? Probably not, but they are the ones I’m most excited about reading that I have in my possession at the moment.
Dawn of Swords by David Dalglish and Robert J. Duperre
This is the newest book by David Dalglish and I’ve read all of his others and loved them. The world Dalglish has created through his entwined series fascinates me for a variety of reasons and this book takes the reader back to the dawn of that world to see how some of the history mentioned in other books came to be.
Unfettered by Shawn Speakman (Editor)
I’ve made it a goal to read a couple of anthologies this year and if I’m going to do that I definitely need to read this one because it features short fiction by some of not only the best fantasy authors in the world, but a majority of my favorites.
The Black Prism by Brent Weeks
There are a lot of books on my list to read someday and Brent Weeks is one of those authors that it seems like everyone recommends at some point. I figure I’m going to have to read a book or two of his at some point just to see if everyone really knows what they are talking about or not.
The Seafort Saga by David Feintuch
(Fisherman’s Hope, Voices of Hope, Patriarch’s Hope, and Children of Hope)
I’ve read the first three books in this series and I want to see how everything ends. I’ve had the books on my Kindle for a long time now and I think I’ll feel pretty accomplished if I can get the entire series finished in the next few months. I really want to know what happens with Nicholas Seafort as he gets older and gains more experience with interpersonal relationships and with command. His character has real potential.
The Gentleman Bastards series by Scott Lynch
(The Lies of Locke Lamora, Red Seas Under Red Skies, and The Republic of Thieves)
This is another trilogy that I’ve heard absolutely rave reviews about from every corner from friends, co-workers, and the authors and publishers I follow on social media. Apparently Scott Lynch has got something seriously good going for him with these books and so when they were on sale recently I grabbed the entire set.
