Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List

These books aren't necessarily coming out this summer. These are books I'm planning on reading this summer.

Kind of a cheat as I've already started this one.

I love the Robin Hood legend so this one seems up my alley.

I loved Across the Universe. I can't wait to continue Amy and Elder's Story.

I admit the beautiful cover caught my eye but with blurb: "A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense". How can I go wrong?

Another kind of cheat. I just picked this one up from the library. I'm looking forward to the last of the Newsflesh series.

The newest from Leila Meacham who wrote Roses. It looks like another sweeping Texas saga. With that title could it be anything else?

The title alone grabbed me. It sounds absolutely delightful!
Perhaps a lazy summer afternoon would be the right time to pick this one up?

Each year I fantasize about setting a month aside just to read graphic novels. I would easily meet my 100 book goal. I can read multiple graphic novels a day usually. And there's a ton like the entire Scott Pilgrim series I'd like to read. I just don't think I could stick to a diet of graphic novels for a month. I know a novel or two would creep it's way into my pile.

After reading An Everlasting Meal, I've been wanting to read Ms Fisher's legendary work. I think summer might be a good time. It easy to like cooking when there's so much fresh food available. 

What's on your summer tbr list?


  1. Your summer list looks incredible!! I posted one on my blog to make sure that I got those books read!!! Have fun!

  2. Any time is a good time to read Pride & Prejudice ;-) I've enjoyed a few of MFK Fisher's essays, too.

  3. I am working on my summer reading list, though I have started two series.... I want to be proactive, not reactionary, and include at least one book I would stop reading to go buy at the bookstore.

    Scarlet: that I must discover!

    I'm also proposing a new Summer Reading Program for those the library thinks needs to be on their own (a.k.a., "adults"): read and give back. Do you think it will catch on?

  4. Great list! I hope you enjoy Pride and Prejudice, it's a good one!

  5. Great Aunt Sophie is on my Goodreads list already! I'm excited to get to it. x

  6. I've been looking for good books to read, so the timing of this post is perfect. You'll have to share what you think of the books afterwards. I just finished The Selection and love Pride and Prejudice!

  7. The Selection is a book that I'm looking forward to reading as well.

  8. Now that looks like a great summer list :D


Shiny! I love comments.
