Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR
I’ve already talked about my favorite beach reads and what is going to be on my beach bag this summer but here are the 10 books that are HIGH on my list (in addition to those books linked above which would definitely make this list).
Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley: I’ve had this since right around the time it came out. It sounds like such a ME book and very beautiful and literary and I really want to get to this one finally!!
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater: It’s embarrassing how long this has been on my shelf. Everyone seems to love this series and I do love Maggie’s writing so IT’S TIME.
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri: This is another one I’ve had on my shelves for the longest time. It’s an adult book (I used to read solely adult books). I love reading books set in different countries and within different cultures so I’m excited!
The Jewel by Amy Ewing: Look at that pretty cover!! This one sounds fascinating and I’m excited to see what this world is all about!
Dissonance by Erica O’Rourke: This sounds like the most awesome ever. All these parallel lives!! VERY COOL.
Wildlife by Fiona Wood: This was another one I was SO excited to bring home from BEA. AUSSIE YA!
Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios: I was already excited for this but I got to see Heather on a worldbuilding panel and all the things she had to say made me EVEN MORE excited for this. JINNIS. INSPIRED BY ARABIAN NIGHTS. I should have started this the day it came in the mail really.
Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future by A.S. King: God, A.S. King is one of the brilliant writers out there! If people say YA is not literary, I will happily fork over money to give them an A.S. King novel. This one sounds fascinating — a girl who can see the past and the future and tries to save the world when the future she sees is awful.
Rooms by Lauren Oliver: Very very excited for Lauren Oliver’s first published adult novel!! And there’s ghosts.
AND OMG OBVIOUSLY ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER IS ON THE TIPPY TOP OF MY LIST!!
So tell me…what books are on your priority list for this summer?? Have you read any of these books I have on my list? Which one should I read first??
