Ten Books on my Summer TBR List
hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Here are the next ten books I plan to read this summer. Not because they’re particularly summer-y, but because I need to read ALL THE BOOKS while I still can.
1. Wonder by R. J. Palacio
I decided to read this book after reading April’s review of it. As a future teacher, I feel it’s important for me to read about characters like Auggie so that I can better understand future students. Also, I wanted to read it because it’s an MG, and I want to have good books to recommend to future students. I’m anxious to read it.
2. A Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix
I discovered that Nix had this book coming out while I was searching around his author website for some reason… Garth Nix is one of those solid authors who I don’t necessarily keep tabs on, but whenever I come across one of his books I always pick it up.
3. Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
I’ve been hearing about Grave Mercy on so many of my favourite book blogs that I knew that I had to check it out. When I saw that my library had just gotten it in, I immediately put it on hold. Bring on the assassin nuns!
4. A Million Suns by Beth Revis
5. Fever by Lauren DeStefano
Even though I mostly enjoyed Wither, I’m nervous to read its sequel. The mixed reviews haven’t been helping, but again, I try not to leave series unfinished.
6. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Libba Bray is an author I’ve heard amazing things about but never really gotten around to reading. I recently read Going Bovine on one of my rare “let’s browse the shelves of the library and pick some non-pre-planned books!” and I was really impressed. My library just got a copy of the audiobook of this in, which is like hitting two birds with one stone for me.
7. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
This is another blog buzz book that I’ve decided to check out. I honestly don’t know THAT MUCH about it (which I love), so it should be an interesting read. I love it when my library gets new books in. So. Much.
8. The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
After finishing The Lightning Thief (review coming in about three weeks), I immediately put this book on hold. Again, another audiobook. Audiobooks are totally changing my point of view on driving and cleaning.
9. Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
I’ve only read one Sarah Dessen novel, so I thought it might be time to read a few more. Picked this one because there was a wait list for it…so that must mean it’s good, right?
10. Bumped by Megan McCafferty
This series has been on my reading radar for awhile now. (Yes, I have a reading radar. Don’t you?) I don’t know how it got bumped up so high on my tbr list, but there it is, and soon I shall read it…
What’s scary is I have another nine books on hold at the library (including Fracture, The Iron King, and Insurgent) plus two dozen purchased books I need to get through (Feed series, Artemis Fowl series, a ton of Atwood’s books), not to mention the eleven books I’m “currently reading” or all the books I’m longing to reread. SO MANY BOOKS, SO LITTLE TIME!
