Ten Books On My Summer TBR
Hey everybody! I’m once again linking up with Top Ten Tuesday, hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s theme is either Top Ten Beach Reads or your Summer TBR. And since most of what I read… really couldn’t be considered a beach read… I’m going with my summer TBR! Not that I’ll stick to it… or even try to stick to it really… but I like having some books I aim to read.
So this is my very rough summer TBR! (it’s mostly just going to be books I currently have access to, with a couple of new releases thrown in that I really want to read, but probably won’t.)
I’ve also just looked back at my spring TBR, and… I couldn’t done a LOT better… I read five out of ten. And also finally gave up and DNF’d a sixth… but yeah, I definitely could’ve done better…
1 – The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic
I actually would have probably read this already, except it didn’t download onto my Kindle! But I technically should own it, soooo… I think it maybe just didn’t download properly…? (by which I mean my dad thinks it maybe just didn’t download properly… I have no tech knowledge whatsoever.)
But yeah, I really want to read this one. Even thoughI don’t like sports at all. But ummm… everyone says it’s good! And diverse! And honestly I’m only reading it because it’s hyped, but whatever!*
2 – The Sound of Us by Ashley Poston
I loved Ashley Poston’s Geekerella, and I found the ebook of this for cheap on amazon a few months ago, sooo… it’s been sitting on my kindle for ages (this one actually downloaded!), and I should really get around to reading it.
*And why am I talking in all exclamation marks!?!
3 – The Falconer by Elizabeth May
Again, I found this one for super cheap, and have had it sitting on my Kindle ever since… It looks interesting, I just haven’t motivated myself to pick it up yet…
4 – Learn About Loss, A Deeper Love, & The Wicked Ones by Cassandra Clare
These short stories have been awesome so far, and I am SO excited for the rest of them! Naturally I will be reading these as soon as I possibly can, sooo… release day if I remember what days they come out, and otherwise a day or two later when they pop up on my goodreads feed.
5 – The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen
This is middle grade, but I read the first book a while ago and really enjoyed it, so I would like to finish the series… I just can’t motivate myself to pick it up, because I don’t think it’s going to be as good…
6 – The Silver Spear by Clare C. Marshall
I read the first book in this series at the beginning of the year, and it was really enjoyable. I own the second one, and have been meaning to read it even since. I haven’t. Maybe that’ll change this summer?
Or maybe it won’t.
7 – I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman
Don’t own this one, but I am SO CLOSE to caving and buying it…! So I’m putting it on my list as a hopeful maybe if I make some money… But yeah, it’s Alice Oseman, so what more needs to be said? I’m obsessed.
8 – Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann
Same as I Was Born For This… I do not own it, my library does not own it, and I am SO CLOSE to cabin and buying it. It sounds super good, and I’ve never read a book with an ace protagonist before. Or, in fact, an ace character, period. And I’ve heard the rep is really good. So. And also it just sounds like a genuinely good book in it’s own right. So I need it.
(and I need money, so that I can buy it.)
9 – This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee
Um, I think my hold for this worked…? And if so I’m going to read this as soon as it comes in! And if not… then I will be very sad.
But if it does come in… I have high hopes. Because Mackenzi Lee. So it should hopefully be good.
10 – The Penderwicks at Last by Jeanne Birdsall
This series was an absolute favourite growing up, and apparently there’s another book? So um, sign me up? My friends have it, and will hopefully loan it to me when they’re done with it. And I can just pretend I remember what happened in the first four books…
