Spring is here in just a few days (YAY! Goodbye, winter!), and that means it’s time for another seasonal TBR jar! If you didn’t see my first post in this series back in September, I’ll give a quick rundown:
The seasonal TBR jar is a series idea I came up with in which, every season, I make a list of books from my owned TBR that fit the “mood” of that season! Then, throughout the next three months, I will randomly pull titles from that jar to motivate me to work on my backlist.
My winter theme was graphic novels, anthologies, novellas, and contemporary titles, and these are the titles I marked off the list during winter:
- Fence, Vol. 1 — C. S. Pacat ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- At the Cemetery Gates: Vol. 2 — John Brhel & Joe Sullivan ⭐⭐⭐⭐
- The Sea Was a Fair Master — Calvin Demmer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- We Should All Be Feminists — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie ⭐⭐
- The Lost Sisters — Holly Black ⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Dead Lake — Darcy Coates ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Damaged Goods — Talia Hibbert ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Witching Hour Theatre — Jonathan Janz ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- It Ends With Us — Colleen Hoover ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
My winter jar had 40 titles in total, so I’d say 9/40 (or 22.5%) is pretty good!
Now, for my spring jar:
In spring, I really like fun reads, whether they’re fluffy, cute, or just quick-paced. Because of that, I decided to have 4 categories of 10 titles each again:
1. graphic novels & manga
2. YA contemporary
4. horror shorts (150pg or less)

How fun!!! I hope you pull out With the Fire on High and Starry Eyes (okay I feel like ContemporApril is going to be a fun month of this is my mood!) ?
Thank you! 😀 Oooooh yes haha!
So fun! The Green Mile is a personal favorite of mine–so much better than the movie version, I think. I hope you enjoy these!
Ooooh, that’s saying a lot because I really like the film! 😀 I’m looking forward to seeing how different it is. Thank you!
Fortune Box was awesome. Enjoy!
Excellent! I haven’t talked to anyone who’s read it before you, I don’t think. I’m glad you dug it 🙂
I really enjoyed Starry Eyes! And I’m so excited for With The Fire on High and If I’m Being Honest! I hope you love them all!
Excellent 😀 thank you!
I hope you get to read Starry Eyes, Once and For All, and The Unhoneymooners. I loved those three!
They all sound SO GOOD!
It’s so awesome that SO MANY of your winter picks were 5 stars! Fingers crossed that carries over into spring, haha. I hope you pick Heroine!! I’m definitely planning to pick that one up as soon as it comes out.
I read the first chapter of Heroine a couple of nights ago and it was immediately so intriguing!!
[…] Destiny at Howling Libraries […]
So many that I want to read here! I wish I could get 5 more hours in a day just to read 😀
I haven’t read most of these, but I enjoyed Starry Eyes (and I’m not usually a romance reader)!
Awww yay! 😀
[…] I started that it would be impossible to mention you all but I want to do a special shout out to Destiny, Mel, Wendy, Lauren, Ashley, Marie, and Kathy (booksandmunches) for supporting me and being amazing […]
Looking forward to you reading Moonstruck. It’s such a nice squishy book with great Spring aesthetics!
I’m finally picking it up tonight and I can’t wait!
this is such a great idea!! i hope you pull the unhoneymooners, if i’m being honest, and untouchable!!
Thank you! I haven’t gotten to the first 2 yet but I read Untouchable and LOVED IT!
This is such a fun idea! I hope you enjoy all that you read!
Thank you so much 🙂
Heroine, The Green Mile, and Things You Save in a Fire!!
All 3 sound so interesting!!
I really enjoyed my last Christina Lauten book hope you enjoy the Unhoneymooners!
Thank you! I’ve had good luck with their writing so far! ?
This is such a great idea! I hope you manage to get through a fair portion of your TBR, and I’m looking forward to hearing all about your upcoming reads!!
