Books on my Spring Possibility Pile

Posted 21-03-2022 by Marion in Allgemein / 19 Comments

Hey, guys!

I have been sick the last two weeks, so I did not feel like coming up with anything or writing anything or posting…anything. Which is fine since I’m rather sure that you didn’t even notice I was gone. πŸ˜‰

Anyway, I’ve been a bit lazy with my monthly goals and Possibility Piles but I am curious to what I could accomplish, so I thought hey, why not make a Possibility Pile for the whole of Spring? That could be doable, right? Okay, so let’s take a look.

Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir
I loved The Martian like so many other people too and I haven’t read Artemis which was apparently not as good? Well, anyway, I’m super curious about Hail Mary and I hope I will like it.

The Circus at the End of the Sea by Lori R. Snyder
I mean, it has a circus and the sea and it sounds really magical and I really want to read it. Even though I’m more of a mountain girl, I’m curious. And hey, broaden your horizons, right?

Frontdesk by Kelly Yang
Not only is it a Middlegrade book with a gorgeous cover, I also think it’s gonna be really illuminating. As an own voices book I’m a bit worried about reviewing it but hey, I should probably read it first before worrying about that, right?

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
I have already read other books by Nicola Yoon and I loved the writing style. It’s just so fluent and you usually start to care about the characters so much. Even though there might be some small things that I could nitpick over, I still want to read all the books she has written.

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
I have never read Artemis Fowl! I know that that is a series that is most famous and very popular but I never felt like reading it. Now, I want to and I hope I’ll like it!

Daughter of the Deep by Rick Riordan
You know those books you are really, really hyped for and can’t wait to be released and you might even preorder them? You absolutely love the author or are hyped because of the synopsis? And when that book is released and you have it in your hands….you can’t make yourself read it. That’s what happens to me with a lot of books and most prominently with Daughter of the Deep. But I thought, if I told you guys about it you could hold me to it? πŸ˜€

The Last Shadow Warrior by Sam Subity
I feel like this book should get much more attention. I mean, it’s about Viking warriors, sea-monsters, other monsters, Valkyries and a dangerous quest. That sounds positively wicked and I hope it’s as good as it sounds.

Dark Waters by Katherine Arden
I was so excited about the new book in the Small Spaces series and still have not read it, even though it came out half a year ago and the next one is already underway. I really love the atmosphere of these books and hope that I will like it.

Josh and Gemma make a baby by Sarah Ready
I am just on the Romance book track at the moment and thought this might be a nice book. It can be total hit or miss of course but I still wanna try.

Weather Girl by Rachel Lynn Solomon
I have already mentioned that I want to read this book but I feel like I need to be in the right mindset for this. I probably won’t read it immediately but that’s the nice thing about a spring pp. You have three months and anything could happen.

Explorer Academy #4 The Star Dunes by Trudi Trueit
I really love this series and the story and the characters. However, I feel like I should not read the books back to back but space them out a bit. I hope I still remember everything from the third book.

Aaaand that is it! Do you know any books from my list? Which one should I read first?

  1. These sound like some great choices; I hope you love whatever you decide on! I’ve only read Dark Waters from this list (though Project Hail Mary is still on my TBR) and I enjoyed it a lot. It was a quick read for me, so you could probably get through it quickly if you wanted to… or you could wait and read it before the final book in the series.

    I do notice when my blog friends don’t post for a while, though I usually wait a couple of months before getting worried. I know that sometimes I don’t feel like writing posts, so I figure other bloggers feel that way, too. I’m glad you’re back though!

    • Thank you, Nicole, that’s sweet of you. πŸ™‚

      I’m really curious about Dark Waters, especially because I’ve heard a lot of negative stuff about this one? I still want to form my own opinion on it and I quite enjoyed the first two, so I will definitely read it. πŸ™‚

      • Really? I didn’t hear the negative stuff, maybe I was just reading different reviews. I still liked Dark Waters a lot. (I think Dead Voices was my favorite so far because I liked the creepy house setting, but I have enjoyed all three.)

        • I mean, I liked the whole scarecrow, creepy farm, dead woods thing of Small Spaces too but there is something about being cut off from everything because of heckloads of snow. I mean, that can easily happen where I live. πŸ˜€ (The last two years there was barely any snow in winter though.)

  2. I was super into Artemis Fowl when I was younger! I remember it being a very enjoyable read, though I would classify them as children’s (or maybe more precisely, MG). I’m hoping that you are well and recovered from your illness.

    • I do quite enjoy Middlegrade books, and I’m happy to hear that they are good! I have read other books by Coifer, so I hope this series does not disappoint! πŸ™‚

      Also, thank you. I feel much better. I’m even trying to get back into bicycling but that might still take a while until I’m completely up to scratch again. πŸ˜€

  3. Hi! First off, I’m so thrilled to see The Circus at the End of the Sea on this list (thank you!), and I totally get being a mountain girl more. Mountains? Also amazing! (Obviously I’m an ocean/beach girl, but I do love me a good mountain!) And next, I didn’t know some of these books and can’t wait to check them out, so thank you for that, too!

    Also, I hope it’s not weird that I comment on your post. CIRCUS is still fairly new in the world and it’s my debut, and seeing it mentioned anywhere makes me positively giddy (even when people don’t love it. That’s the beauty of books; something for everyone!)

    • Hi, Lori! No, not creepy at all. I think a lot of readers would be extatic to have an actual author comment on their blogs. πŸ˜€ I’m just surprised you found me?

      I have lived my whole life in the mountains, I guess it comes with the territory. There is just something special for me to hike up and stand on a peak and be amazed at how far you can see. Not that the sea is not interesting. All those deep sea critters? I’m utterly fascinated. πŸ™‚

      I’m looking forward to reading your book and get to know all the characters and the circus, I’m ready to be amazed. πŸ˜‰

      • Aw, thanks! In terms of finding you, I’m lucky enough to be married to a librarian, and he runs searches on my book all the time and tells me where it shows up. πŸ™‚ And every now and then I think the place it shows up is super fun (like here) and feel compelled to comment! One of the many perks of having a librarian for a husband!

  4. Great list! I really want to read so many of these as well. Project Hail Mary, Weather Girl and Daughter of the Deep are high up on my TBR this year though πŸ˜ƒ I hope you enjoy whichever ones you pick up!

    • Thank you so much! I’m really looking forward to all these books but at the moment I have a bit of a problem sticking to my reads. I hope it won’t turn into a reading slump. πŸ˜›

      Hey, maybe we can do a buddy read if you want. Maybe for Daughter of the Deep?Doesn’t have to be right away, just whenever you feel like reading that one?

  5. You have a great list here!!! ❀️ I loved Everything, Everything so I hope you do too, even though it’s polarizing in opinions I think it has a beautiful ending ☺️ & I hope you’re feeling better honey, I’m sending you lots of energy from here!✨✨✨

    • Hello, Sofi, and thank you! I’m much better now. And I loved TSIAAS but I’m a bit wary about Everything, Everything tbh. I started it a bit but somehow I felt it was not as immersive? Maybe it was because the chapters were so short. I will definitely try again but I want to start one of the other books first.

  6. So many of these sound interesting! I didn’t love The Ex Talk but I’m still curious about Weather Girl by the same author, so if you do get to read it, I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Also, Dark Waters seems so fun, but I still haven’t read the first book in the seriesπŸ˜…

    • That reminds me that I haven’t reviewed The Ex Talk yet. I didn’t like it either. I liked the writing style but was it just me or were the characters just too thirsting? I don’t know. But Weather Girl has great reviews, so I hope that one will be better.
      Also, you need to read Small Spaces. It’s great! πŸ˜€

  7. I still really need to read the second book in the Small Spaces series by Addison. Which sucks because I love her writing. I hope you will enjoy it.

    • I quite liked Dead Voices! The whole being cut off from the outside world, the creepiness of it all, the cold, the danger…I loved it.
