Books On My Spring 2019 TBR

Well, the first three of these are going to be Discworld books for sure. I’ve been enjoying reading the Discworld series, and want to keep going with it, so we’ll see how many of these I get through. Beyond that, though, it’s the books I’m interested in reading soon but also the ones I think are likely to get to this spring. I won’t hold myself to this, of course, but it’s a tentative priority TBR.

  1. Soul Music by Terry Prachett
  2. Pyramids by Terry Prachett
  3. Guards! Guards! by Terry Prachett
  4. The Emerald Circus by Jane Yolen
  5. Passage by Connie Willis
  6. Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Andersen
  7. Late Eclipses by Seanan McGuire
  8. One Salt Sea by Seanan McGuire
  9. Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds by Brandon Sanderson
  10. The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

Late Eclipses and One Salt Sea are both October Daye books (#4 and 5, respectively) and I’m planning on joining the #ADayeAMonth team with their Twitter Read-A-Long of the series. (There are 12 books out so far, with the 13th releasing at the end of the year, so the group is reading one book per month. I’m not 100% sure I’ll continue reading on the one book per month pace — I tend to binge read when I like a series — but I want to at least make the attempt so I have people to read with. Since I’ve already read books 1-3, I’m anticipating starting this Read-A-Long in April with book 4.

  1. Guards! Guards! and Pyramids are two of my favourite Discworld books! I hope you enjoy them both. I’m rereading the death books at the moment, so hopefully I’ll get to Soul Music soon. It’s pretty sketchy in my head so I’m interested to see what I do/don’t remember.

    1. Thanks! I haven’t read Soul Music or Pyramids before, but I read Guards! Guards! once. I vaguely remember something about a dragon, so I’m excited to re-read it.

  2. I haven’t read Guards! Guards! for years but I enjoyed it. Pyramids is fun. I’ll be interested to hear what you think of the bizarre Discworld take on Ancient Egypt.

    Happy reading!

    1. Thanks, I’m looking forward to seeing different areas of the Discworld! Most of what I’ve read has been set in the Ramtops or Ankh-Morpork.

    1. I haven’t had great luck with Sanderson yet. I read Steelheart and didn’t like it much. I’m hoping that reading something of his in a more fantasy series will help.

    1. Discworld can be intimidating, but one way to get around that is to focus on a sub-series. I would recommend the Tiffany Aching series if you’re interested. It’s Discworld but it’s YA, so it has a different feel to it.

      Thanks, and happy Spring to you too!

    1. It’s worth trying at least, but they’re not for everyone. Also, which books you start with could drastically impact your opinion of his style. He was a lot more intensely punny in his early writing, while some of his later books did more in the way of character development.

  3. Nice list! Robin, our offspring, recommended Guards! Guards! as a good place to start with Pratchett. (The Colour of Magic was not a good place to start, as it didn’t really appeal to me… even though I did finish it. But I’ve heard a lot of people say it’s not the best place to dive in.) And I love the cleverness of the #ADayeAMonth hashtag.

    1. I started either with The Colour of Magic or Sourcery, and I don’t think that either of those were good starting places. Guards! Guards! would have been better. Mr. Wyrm started with Wyrd Sisters, and said that was a good starting place too.

      (I wish I could claim credit for the #ADayeAMonth hashtag, but sadly I’m just climbing on the bandwagon for that one. 😉 )
