LIST: Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List

I've got a mixture of new releases, older books, and mysteries that I'm hoping to read this spring. (It's the first day of spring, temperature is going to be above 10 C, and it is the March Break - what a great day!)

1. Age of Doubt by Andrea Camilleri (released May 1, 2012)
The newest book (#14) in the Inspector Montalbano series, I am looking forward to my annual 'visit' to Sicily.

2. The Uninvited Guests by Sadie Jones
New book by the author of Small Wars and The Outcast.

As much as I love the Shopaholic Books, I've enjoyed her standalone books even more

4. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Steig Larson
The first two were fabulous; I need to see how it all ends up

5. 1222 by Anne Holt

I've been saving this book to read during the Once Upon a Time Challenge, which usually starts about now.

9. The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje
Loved the movie, want to read the book.

10. Something from the Orange Prize Longlist for 2012 - could be Gillespie and I, The Sealed Letter, The Forgotten Waltz, or There But for the..
