For spring, these are the ten books prioritized on my TBR Mountain. They are a mix of genres, include three ARCs (advance reader copies), and most have been reviewed highly by others. I’m hoping for some winners here. Have you read any of these or is one on your TBR?

I never plan more than ten titles for my quarterly TBR lists because I need to leave time for mood reading and review commitments. These ten books (in no particular order) are a priority on a much longer general TBR.

What is your most anticipated read this spring?

I’m linking up today with That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday: Spring 2020 To Be Read List.

Happy Reading Book Buddies!

“Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading.”
~Rainer Maria Rilke

“I love the world of words, where life and literature connect.”
~Denise J Hughes

“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.”
~Madeleine Riley, Top Shelf Text

  1. So excited to see your list Carol!! I’ve just read 2 of them — Book Girl (which I loved fo her insightful look at specific books and their value in her life–plus lots of reading suggestions!) and also Liturgy of the Ordinary (which is in my top 5 books ever– have done a couple different reading groups with this books and it really changed the way I find God in my day to day. Favorite chapter– Waking Up) And– I’ve gotten several of your picks on my library TBR list. Sadly, our library closed today!! Even their book slots are closed! So the library books I have on hand and have read will stay here until they reopen– Who knows when??!) But back to the point– thank you for the great recommendations. I’m going to order The Salt Path on Amazon because I can’t wait until the library reopens to request it!! thanks thanks once again!
