The Top 5 Books on my Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The Second Half Of The Year. Well I say where’s the Summer TBR week?! This happened last winter too. What gives? I need my seasonal TBRs! There’s a freebie week coming up but I didn’t want to wait until then as the official start of summer is next Monday. On to my rebel ways yet again…

1. The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

gr-thelonggame

I really, really enjoyed The Fixer and need this sequel in my life ASAP.

2. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

The mixed reviews have kept me from buying this book, but the pretty cover keeps tempting me. Now that it’s my next book club read, I’ll be giving into the temptation!

3. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

gr-sense&sensibility

Carry-over from my spring TBR that I want to get to soon.

4. The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

gr-shadowqueen

I’ve got this one on hold with the library and I’m curious about it. I saw C.J. Redwine at SE YA Fest and look forward to reading her work.

5. Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter

gr-dontjudge

I’m slowly making my way through the Gallagher Girls books and this my next one to read.

I stopped at five because that’s all I can think of at the moment! Weird, right? What happened to my mountain-high TBR? I don’t know, I’m just kind of winging it these days, seeing what calls to me (or is available from the library).

What’s on your summer TBR?

The Top Ten(ish) Books On My TBR For Summer 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books on my TBR for Summer 2015. So I am pretty proud of myself because I read 7 out of the 10 books on my spring TBR! I also started one of the books but put it down with the intention to eventually pick it back up (the writing book, Save the Cat by Blake Snyder) and then there’s The Hero of Ages, which I intend to start very soon. On the note, let’s start the summer TBR list, in no particular order…

1. The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson

The-Hero-of-Ages

Yes, I really will read this soon.

2. The Start of You and Me by Emery Lord

gr-thestartofyouandme

All you people who talk about the cute, nerdy interactions have made me put this on my TBR.

3. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

gr-distancebetween

I got the ebook recently and I’m ready to see what the fuss is about!

4. Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee

gr-underapaintedsky

I’ve heard good things about this one so I put it on hold at the library.

5. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

gr-hitckhiker'sguide

My dad asked me recently if I had read this yet, since he knew I had gotten it for Christmas. I had to admit I had not, and I told him I just so had much to read! But I think I’ll read it soon so I can tell him I did!

6. The Last Time We Said Goodbye by Cynthia Hand

gr-thelasttime

Another carry-over from my spring TBR, but hopefully I will actually get to it this summer.

7. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

gr-mansfieldpark

Since the year is halfway over, I really need to think about when I am going to fit in my annual Jane Austen read, which I’m pretty sure will be Mansfield Park this time.

8., 9., and 10…?

So after this I’m not really sure. There are a lot of things I’ve thought about reading and haven’t gotten around to, so depending on library availability and mood, maybe I will get around to some of these…

summertbr1Or something from my collection that I have yet to read…
