Books on My Spring TBR

I'm linking up with That Artsy Reader Girl for another Top Ten Tuesday.

It's TBR check-in time! This time I only have three holdovers from my Winter TBR list, which is pretty good for me.

1. America's Public Schools by William J. Reese
I'm hoping to get a job with an organization that works with K-12 education and that background knowledge was one of my weak spots (since I've always been in higher ed). Stuff on education can be really divisive so I thought finding a historian's overview would be a good starting point.

2. Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
This continues to be on my TBR list... but it's at the top now! And I have a hold on the ebook!

3. Disunity in Christ by Christena Cleveland
This is another repeat. I think I would have read it by now if my library had a digital version, but instead I'll have to find time to read my hard copy.

4. Hallowe'en Party by Agatha Christie
I'm getting so close to finishing all the Hercule Poirot books! There are only a few more.

5. Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
It feels like everyone has read this by now but me, so I put a hold on the audiobook.

6. Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
This comes out at the end of April and I'm so excited!

7. A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah
Still on my TBR list, but I have a hold on it now so I should get the audiobook soon.

8. Magician's Gambit by David Eddings
I've started on my goal of rereading the Belgariad and Malloreon via audiobook, although I have to say that the series' narrator is super weird and inconsistent with his fantasy accents and it's a little annoying.

9. The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough
I've finally gotten through most of the "must read" classics on my TBR list and am now onto the lesser-known classics.

10. Watership Down by Richard Adams
I've read this before but my online book club is reading it for our April discussion, and it's been long enough that I need to read it again.

I've gotten away from my goal of reading 50% off my actual TBR list, so I'm going to have to swing the pendulum back soon!

What's on your spring TBR?
