Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is books on my Spring TBR. This is hilarious because I have no idea. My world is in a bit of upheaval right now, so the things I put on my list today, may be completely irrelevant by May. But, hey, I'm game.
First: work-type stuff -
The American Way of Poverty: How the Other Half Still Lives by Sasha Abramsky - Pretty obvious, right?
A Hope In The Unseen: An American Odyssey from the Inner City to the Ivy League by Ron Suskind - Also pretty self-explanatory.
Serving Urban Teens by the American Library Association - Yup.
Reading for Their Life: (re)building the textual lineages of African American adolescent males by Alfred W. Tatum - Those are some big words. I hope I can read this.
Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond - This is getting depressing.
Next: YA stuff -
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman - I don't know what this is about, but I do know that the big deal is that it is printed like emails, or memos, and different stuff.
Bone Gap by Laura Ruby - This is a Sequoyah Award nominee
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli - Sequoyah nominee also.
Next: Fun stuff -
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld - This is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Squee!!
Burn Baby Burn by Meg Medina - A young Latina woman lives in New York in the Summer of Sam. Eeek!
Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye - A Jane Eyre retelling, but Jane is a vigilante killer.
The Waters of Eternal Youth by Donna Leon - The new Commisario Brunetti novel!!
That's 10, right? We'll see what actually happens.
