Top Ten Tuesday: Spring Reads

Each week, The Broke and the Bookish holds Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly book blogging meme. This week, we’re talking about spring reads. I had a difficult time choosing which 10 to put on the list (and I suppose that by putting a series as one, I cheated a bit). I ended up with a pretty big variety,  but here goes:



This Thursday, we’ll interrupt your regularly scheduled program for the first of a new monthly series that contributor Lyn of Lazy Lady is bringing to the Monster.

    1. I’m still not sure how I felt about those books. They bear the mark of the quick writing that Frey apparently demands from Full Fathom Five writers, but they’ve got some interesting bits in them, too.


      1. I’m not an Oz fan, so I haven’t decided if I want to read them or not. I do however love revelings. I’m really into The Lunar Chronicles right now.
        I’m not familiar with Full Fathom Five writers though. Never heard of them. What exactly, is it?

        1. I thought I recognized that person’s name, The I am Number Four books. *sigh* I figured they were bad. He also has one called Endgame or something that parallels some sort of app or game.

        2. Yeah, it’s nasty business. I don’t think it’s changed much since that 2010 article, and the terms of the contract that he lays out in there are awful—Frey seems like a skeezy sort of fellow, just based on the Million Little Pieces debacle and now this.


        3. In the words of Teal’c, indeed. Frankly, I’m surprised at the popularity of the I am Number Four books, but the reluctant readers seem to love them. I had a teen who liked SciFi and Fantasy and I suggested several better series before that seemed to hit the mark. But if they are good to get that segment of the population, who are usually struggling readers, than at least they are good for something.

        4. Yeah I know what you mean. I just wish that the poor writers got a better deal from all of this. The pay is abysmal, and the contracts are pretty awful in scope—unless it’s changed, the writers aren’t allowed to identify themselves as FFF writers unless the organization gives them to go ahead to, and they can be held liable for the content of the books in a lawsuit but don’t own the copyright or anything.
