An Exciting New Spring 2020 To-Be-Read Reading List

March 16, 2020 Rissi JC 29 Comments

Here we are. It’s that time again. That’s right, we’re again at the point when its time (again) to make a seasonal TBR. This time, it’s a Spring 2020 TBR reading list.

LIST | 20 of the Novels & Irish Romance Movies for St. Patty’s Day

Spring is just around the corner, and I’m wondering: WHERE HAS MARCH GONE?? With the 15th of the month come and gone, we’re halfway through another month of 2020, which means it’s time to talk about another seasonal TBR. Like any seasonal to-be-read aspirations, the likelihood of actually reading all of these is slim, but I can be hopeful. Still, considering INSPY reading, it’s not promising. That said, I do have good intentions and WANT to read all of these, so there is that.

The list today is a mix of upcoming releases (because I can’t not talk about those), and some from my shelf.

Upcoming releases on my Spring TBR

1: The Betrothed (May) by Kiera Cass

Been waiting for this release for SO DARN LONG! Cannot wait to finally read this one. Amazon | Goodreads

2: The Socialite (April) by J’nell Ciesielski 

J’Nell’s Among the Poppies really impressed me, so I’m curious to learn more about this upcoming historical fiction release, and hopefully to read it sooner rather than later. Amazon | Goodreads

3: What I Like About You (April) by Marisa Kanter

Ok, so I’ve already read this one thanks to the publisher, but golly, it’s so cute that I had to mention it. Amazon | Goodreads

4: Of Literature and Lattes (May) by Katherine Reay

Always adore Katherine’s contemporaries that are more than just a “sweet read,” and instead explore varying aspects of characterization and the journey (figurative and literal) of its characters. Amazon | Goodreads 

5: Stay With Me (May) by Becky Wade

One of my favorite authors has a new book coming this spring season so naturally I’m going to include this lovely on the list. Amazon | Goodreads

BONUS! Jo & Laurie by Margaret Stohl and Melissa de la Cruz

I couldn’t resist adding this one. At first I thought it fell under the “summer TBR” timeline, but nope it’s spring-time, so I had to include it here because it intrigues me so much. Amazon | Goodreads

Books on my Shelf

1: [All of the] INSPY Reads

I’ve got a good number reads to get through for the 2020 INSPYs. One of which is Whose Waves These Are. If you or anyone you know is interested, go check out the details on how to becoming involved!

2: Well Met by Jen DeLuca

Meant to read this when it released last year, but alas, never did. It looks super spring-y though, right? Amazon | Goodreads

3: Meg & Jo by Virginia Kantra

Not sure this will be a “me book” because I have visions of certain changes authors may make to this story (which is, of course, Little Women), and I am not into them. But I don’t know that to be a fact for this story, so for now, I’m optimistic. Amazon | Goodreads

4: The Life and (Medieval) Times of Kit Sweetly (May) by Jamie Pacton

Have this one on my shelf thanks to the publisher and it sounds so fun. Cannot wait to discover why lies inside these pages. Amazon | Goodreads

5: Moment of Truth by Kasie West

I mean, it’s Kasie West. Her books are the definition of sunshine and happy! Amazon | Goodreads

    I want to read Meg & Jo, but I think I should read Little Women first!

    • Rissi March 16, 2020 at 11:21 PM

      I probably should too, but in all likelihood I’ll read “Meg & Jo” first. :) Thanks so much for the visit, Angela.

  • Raya @ Rayasreads March 17, 2020 at 12:47 AM

    I have a couple of them on my list! Of Literature and Lattes looks interesting. I think I’ll check it out.

    • Rissi JC March 25, 2020 at 9:41 PM

      Fun! Hope those you have on your list are good – and I haven’t read this one by Katherine, but her books are always good, so I’m hopeful for ‘Lattes.’ Thanks for the visit, Raya.

  • Greg March 17, 2020 at 2:23 AM

    March is flying by! So true. And I agree- Kasie west’s books always look so summery and fun! I’ve never read her but they always look so appealing. :)

    I hope you get to as many as possible and that they’re all good. :)

    • Rissi JC March 25, 2020 at 9:43 PM

      IT IS! Not sure where this year is going. Kasie’s books are just darling. Nothing too dark or depressing, but that’s what I love most about them. :) Hope you enjoy those you plan to read too, Greg – and thanks for the visit.

  • Lydia March 17, 2020 at 7:21 AM

    Happy reading! This looks like a fun list.

    My TTT .

      Thanks I sure hope it will be. :) Appreciate your visit, Lydia.

  • Dini @ dinipandareads March 17, 2020 at 8:09 AM

    • Rissi JC March 25, 2020 at 9:45 PM

    Great list! Well Met is really cute and The Life and (Medieval) Times of Kit Sweetly is one I’d really like to try. Happy reading!

    • Rissi JC March 25, 2020 at 8:06 PM

      YAY! Glad you liked Well Met. Hope I do read it soon because it seems like a solid spring/summer-ish read. :) Hope you enjoy ‘Kit Sweetley’; it does indeed sound good. Appreciate your visit, Jess.

  • Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse March 17, 2020 at 3:30 PM

    I really enjoyed Well Met. I hope you do, too!

    • Rissi JC March 25, 2020 at 8:04 PM

      So glad to know this, Deanna. Thanks for the share! Hopeful I will indeed enjoy Well Met. :) Appreciate your visit.

  • Michelle @ Pink Polka Dot Books March 18, 2020 at 12:36 AM

    I’m really curious about Jo & Laurie since I’ve always been a Jo & Laurie shipper. Meg & Jo could be good too– you never know when you mess with a classic!! I hope you love all of these :)

    • Rissi JC March 25, 2020 at 8:01 PM

      I don’t really have a feel one way or another about the could-have-been Jo & Laurie, but I am 100% curious!! Thanks, Michelle; I hope to enjoy these as well. Appreciate your visit. :)

  • Aj @ Read All The Things! March 18, 2020 at 9:00 AM

    I like making TBRs, but I usually get distracted by new books and don’t read the ones I planned to read. I hope you enjoy all these!

    • Rissi JC March 25, 2020 at 12:15 PM

      I rarely if ever make it through any planned (like these) TBRs, AJ. But for some reason I still REALLY enjoy making these kinds of lists. :) Thanks so much for the visit.

  • Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense March 18, 2020 at 2:09 PM

    I haven’t heard What I Like About You. I must check it out!

    • Rissi JC March 25, 2020 at 11:37 AM

      It’s SO darn cute, Alicia; it’s like a love letter to book bloggers. :) Appreciate your visit.

  • Hanne T March 20, 2020 at 2:32 PM

    Whose Waves These Are was one of my favorite reads from 2020!! It is SUCH a good book. Aside from that, I’ve been really behind on all the books that have been coming out recently: I have to get up to date really badly ?

    Happy spring!

    • Rissi JC March 25, 2020 at 11:30 AM

      I’m glad to hear this, Hanne. I know the feeling ALL THE TOO WELL. I’m way behind on all of my recent reads too. I think it’s a perpetual state for we bookworms. ;) Thanks for the visit.

  • Lauren @ Always Me March 20, 2020 at 2:48 PM

    Pacton’s book sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun. :)
