summer 2019 tbr list
posted by soe 1:13 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic at That Artsy Reader Girl is one of my favorites: our quarterly reading plan.

So what are ten of the books I’m most looking forward to reading this summer? For the sake of tidiness, I’m only including books I haven’t yet started:

  1. Elizabeth Acevedo’s With the Fire on High (It’s overdue, but I will get to it this week…)
  2. Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid (I have it out on cd, because that’s considered old-school media and had no waitlist)
  3. Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston (First Son and Crown Prince in a romance!)
  4. Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking back the English Language by Amanda Montell (I mean, duh…)
  5. Jasmine Guillory’s The Proposal (baseball and romance!)
  6. Nnedi Okorafor’s Shuri (A graphic novel about my favorite on-screen scientist? And done by a skillful SFF writer? Yes, please!)
  7. Hope Rides Again by Andrew Shaffer (This is really the only way I want to experience Joe Biden in contemporary pop culture.)
  8. The Bermudez Triangle by Marueen Johnson (Summertime teen romances, picked up yesterday from my local Little Free Library)
  9. Amy Stewart’s Girl Waits with Gun (I picked up and then put down the first of the Kopp Sisters novels back the same year it was published, but always meant to circle back to it. It was also in the Little Free Library yesterday, so now the circle requires fewer steps.)
  10. Jake and Lily by Jerry Spinelli (About the summer twins turn 11 from the author of Stargirl and Maniac Magee)

How about you? What’s on your summer TBR list?

Category: books. There is/are 7 Comments.

I love reading these even when I’m not participating (I just published another author interview on my blog instead). You might want to take a look – Jane Davis is an amazing author!

“Wordslut” sounds interesting. I will have to add it to my list of books to read. I don’t have a summer plan, just a big stack of books, which includes…

1. “Calypso” by David Sedaris
2. “The Trouble With Goats and Sheep” by Joanna Cannon
3. “Murder on the Orient Express” (to reread) by Agatha Christie
4. “Hazards of Time Travel” by Joyce Carol Oates
5. “Shadow and Bone” by Leigh Bardugo
6. “Characters & Viewpoint” by Orson Scott Card
7. “Lucifer at the Starlite” by Kim Addonizio
8. “Nightmares! The Lost Lullaby” by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller
9. “No Time to Spare” by Ursula K. Le Guin
10. A bunch of cookbooks. I don’t cook much, but I like to think about what I might cook if I did cook.

Wordslut sounds like such a good read.

I haven’t heard of most of these, but I hope you get time to read them and that you love them when you do!

Happy TTT!

I’ve not read any of these. I hope you enjoy them! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

With the Fire on High and Red, White and Royal Blue are on my TBR as well! And oh gosh, I adored (!!!!) Daisy Jones & the Six, so SO much, and I hope you do as well. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the audiobook and am stoked to hear it myself because its format is perfect for audio, especially with a full cast!
