Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great week. My mum was up visiting last weekend, so it was nice to get to spend some time with her. I’m heading home from Uni for the summer next Friday, so this week is just going to be a whole lot of packing, which I’m not going to lie, I’m not exactly looking forward to! Anyway, I’m back this week with another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is a Summer Reads freebie, but as I’m not big on the traditional beach read (fluffy contemporaries aren’t really my thing), I’m going to share the Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR. I’m not always great at sticking to a TBR list (I’ve read 6 1/2 of the books on my Spring TBR out of 10, which I suppose isn’t bad) but these are the books I’m hoping to read this summer:
- Under Rose Tainted Skies-Louise Gornall
Okay so this was on my Spring TBR, but honestly I wasn’t intending on reading it until June anyway! I’m planning a YALC Reading Challenge for June and July where I read books that I either acquired at YALC or books by YALC authors (more info coming on that very soon!), so this works well for that as I got it at YALC last year and it’s also on my #RockMyTBR list, so I’ll be killing two birds with one stone.
2. Frozen Charlotte-Alex Bell
I wasn’t planning on reading this one until October as I thought it would make a good Halloween read, but it’s on my #RockMyTBR list and it’s a book I got from YALC, so reading it in July would again kill two birds with one stone.
3. Resurrection-Derek Landy
I AM SO EXCITED FOR THE NEW SKULDUGGERY PLEASANT BOOK, I CAN’T EVEN! I will definitely be reading this as soon as I get it!
4. Six of Crows-Leigh Bardugo
This is another book on my #RockMyTBR list, I think I’ll be reading it in August. I’ve heard so many great things about this book, so I can’t wait to see what all the fuss is about!
5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone-Laini Taylor
Laini Taylor is going to be at YALC this year, and so I reckon this summer is a perfect time to finally get around to reading this book! I’ve heard great things, and my friend absolutely loves this series, so I have a good feeling about this book.
6. The Bone Season-Samantha Shannon
Samantha Shannon is also going to be at YALC this year, so again, I think it’s a great time to finally get around to reading her book. My friend also loves Samantha Shannon’s books and we have very similar tastes, so I’m hopeful that I will enjoy this book!
7. One of Us Is Lying-Karen McManus
Karen McManus is also going to be at YALC this year, and I got approved for One of Us Is Lying, so I will definitely try to get around to it before then. The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars? Sounds so good!
8. Flame In The Mist-Renee Ahdieh
Okay this is kind of a cheat as I’m reading it at the moment, but I’m not even halfway through yet, so I’ll probably be reading it through the summer!
9. The Love Interest-Cale Dietrich
I just got this after winning it in a giveaway, so I will definitely try to read it over the summer, as I love the idea of turning the love triangle trope on it’s head!
10. A VE Schwab book
Okay so this one is kind of vague, but I’m not really sure which of her books I want to read next, I just know that I will likely want a Schwab fix over the summer!
I’m going to stick to just 10 this week as I have a hard time sticking to TBRs anyway, let alone with more than 10 books on them! What are you planning to read over the summer? Do we share any? Any other UK bloggers/readers planning on going to YALC? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s list is our Top Ten Most Anticipated Books for the rest of 2017, and there are so many great books coming out in the second half of 2017 that I’m excited to share with you guys, so I’m really looking forward to that. In the meantime, I’m planning a discussion post to post tomorrow, so stay tuned for that!
