This week’s TTT theme is the top ten books that are on your spring TBR. I have so many books that I need to read within the next few months (particularly before I attend YALLWEST at the end of April), so this list is comprised of just a small selection from the huge pile of books that I’m hoping to read in the next couple of months.

This week’s TTT theme is the top ten books set in x setting, meaning we get to pick whatever kind of setting we want! I chose my top ten books with fictional places that I want to visit because there are so many fantasy-and-dystopian-esque landmarks and cities that I would love to see. I used the same books a few times for this list because there are some series that have such a variety of fictional settings that I couldn’t choose just one!
