posted by soe 3:18 am

Today’s Broke and Bookish Top Ten Tuesday topic arrives a few days before the solstice:

Top Ten Books at the Top of My Summer TBR List:

A handful from my 2013 reading list:

  1. Barbara Kingsolver’s Flight Behavior
  2. Jacqueline Winspear’s Messenger of Truth (the 4th Maisie Dobbs novel)
  3. Laurie King’s A Monstrous Regiment of Women (the 2nd Mary Russell book)

A few from the home TBR pile:

  1. Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
  2. Dr. Radway’s Sarsaparilla Resolvent by Beth Kephart

A couple library loans:

  1. Rosencrans Baldwin’s Paris I Love You, But You’re Bringing Me Down
  2. Kathy Reichs’ Virals (because my dad has told me repeatedly that I’d like this series)

An old favorite:

  1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

And a pair yet to be published:

  1. The Rathbones by Janice Clark (I have an ARC; publication date is early August)
  2. Elizabeth Wein’s new book, Rose under Fire (already out in the U.K, but due in early September here in the U.S.)

How about you? Is summer your time for light reads or when you catch up on those big books you don’t have time for the rest of the year?

Category: books. There is/are 2 Comments.

I’ve only one book that is a definite, and I begin tomorrow. Edwin Way Teale’s Journey into Summer. I so loved his Springtime in Britain, and this one is in the US. It begins in my area which is a thrill.
