top ten books on my summer tbr list
posted by soe 1:47 am

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic at The Broke and the Bookish is ten books I’d like to read this summer:

  1. Barbara Kingsolver’s Flight Behavior: I know, I know. I haven’t read either of the last two Kingsolver novels I’ve bought. I will get past the first chapter this summer.
  2. A.S. King’s Ask the Passengers: Also on last summer’s TBR list. It is in my possession from the library and just waiting my finishing up my current read-along on Saturday.
  3. Eliot Schrefer’s Threatened: Also in my possession. I started it the night I got it … and despite enjoying what I read, I haven’t gone back to it. Soon…
  4. Alaya Dawn Johnson’s The Summer Prince: It has summer in the title and takes place in (an alternate version of?) Brazil. Seems like good World Cup reading to me.
  5. Mariko and Jillian Tamaki’s This One Summer: A summer-themed graphic novel.
  6. Robert Galbraith’s The Silkworm: Sequel! Comes out Thursday!
  7. Rainbow Rowell’s Landline: Rainbow is one of those authors I will read anything by.
  8. Nina LaCour’s The Disenchantments: Post-high school road trip. This screams summer reading.
  9. Helene Wecker’s The Golem and the Jinni: I put this down earlier in the year and am eager to get back to it.
  10. Jennifer E. Smith’s This Is What Happy Looks Like: A summer romance.

And more, I’m sure!

Happy Reading, Sprite! The only one on the list I’ve read is the Kingsolver one, and it wasn’t a fave, actually. I hope you like it!

I just posted my list and I was hoping we’d have a book in common, but really, what were the odds?
I did recently read an AS King novel, Reality Boy, and really liked it. I should look for more of her books. I did enjoy Flight Behaviour last summer, and I would like to read something by Rainbow Rowell so I can stay sitting at the cool kid’s table. The only other book I partly recognize is The Golem and the Jinni.
Enjoy your summer!

Oooh, the Summer Prince – that is a good call for this summer!
