Top Ten Tuesday (12): At the Top of My Summer TBR List

June 18, 2013 Summer Reads, Top Ten Tuesday 51

**Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and Bookish.**

The months in the summer have fewer releases on my TBR, thank goodness, so the plan is to use this time and read a few books off my shelf. I also tend to crave contemporary fiction in the summer so you’ll see a lot of that in my list as well!

Must-Read Summer/Fall ARCs

-Belladonna (Secrets of the Eternal Rose #2) by Fiona Paul Ahh! Finally! This will be read this week! Can’t wait for more Falco!
-Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick & Suzanne Young LOVE these authors! Can’t wait to see what they do together.
-How to Love by Katie Cotugno This isn’t out until October but I won’t be able to wait that long!

-Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell I was so in love with her last book, Eleanor & Park and this one sounds perfect for me!
-Covet by Tracey Garvis-Graves Another case of loving her last book, which was On the Island. Plus, it sounds amazing too!
-All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill For my time-travel fix! Been crazy excited to read this!

Must-Reads that Have Been (Sadly) Gathering Dust

-Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo Do I really have to explain why? lol I need to jump on board the bandwagon and FINALLY check this series out!
-Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson Two words: Road trip!
-A Midsummer’s Nightmare by Kody Keplinger I adore this author’s writing and can’t believe I’ve put this one off so long.

-Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson Another by this author!
-Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone One of my most anticipated reads last year! *sigh* It’s a travesty how long it’s been sitting on my shelf, unread.
-Storm by Brigid Kemmerer I need to meet these boys!

Yeah, yeah, yeah… I know I went over. Don’t I always? I really hope I can stick to this. I was doing so good keeping to my list and cranking out a couple reads really fast, for me, but then I got sick and unable to read for a few days and it all went to shit. lol *fingers crossed* What are you planning to read this summer? Links if you got ’em!

    This is a great list Sara, I had so many great books to choose from too that I couldn’t but help but list more either. I adored Shadow and Bone and Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, so I’m so glad they made it to your list! I can’t wait to read All Our Yesterdays eirher!

  2. Tanja - Tanychy

    All Our Yesterdays and Shadow and Bone are on my list too! 🙂 I’m dying to read both. Also I have to read Time After Time, the sequel to Time Between Us. Great picks! 🙂

  3. Samantha Stewart

    Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour is such an amazing summer read! I have Second Chance Summer on my list too!
    I really NEED to get my hands on a copy of Shadow & Bone ASAP! Because it just sounds amazing!
    Great list 🙂

    Wow we have the same haven’t-read-but-really-need-to list lol. I’ve heard that Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour is a really amazing book, and I’m hopefully going to read it this summer because it looks like a good summery read. And I also REALLY need to get my hands on A Midsummer’s Nightmare – it looks amazing. Shadow and Bone, for me, wasn’t really as awesome as the hype played it up to be (in my opinion) but I hope you like it. I read Second Chance Summer last year and I remember liking it ok, not loving it. I’m planning on re-reading it soon. Oooh and All Our Yesterdays looks awesome as well.

    Sorry for my book I mean comment 🙂

    My Top Ten

    It happens! Books you really want to read get set to the side. I finally read Raven Boys just last month.
    On my list this summer:
    Black Heart
    Froi of the Exiles and Quintana of Charyn
    Deadly Cool and Social Suicide
    Then I’m starting in on those August and September review books

    PS I think you’ll love Shadow and Bone…but we can still be friends if you don’t.

  6. Jessica Leigh

    So many books that are on my TBR, but I didn’t have enough room to put on my list! LOL! I want to read both Amy and Roger and Second Chance Summer- both look SO cute! I also need to jump on the Shadow and Bone bandwagon, so you’re definitely not alone there! I could keep going, but I won’t. I need to read alot of these also!

  7. Susan

    I haven’t read any of these, but ALL OUR YESTERDAYS sounds amazing! I hope you get a chance to read it and all the others on your list 🙂

  8. Lauren @ Love is not a triangle

    I just finished HOW TO LOVE and it was EXCELLENT!!! Fangirl, Covet and All Our Yesterdays are also up there on my list, but I’m trying not to read everything so early. Shadow and Bone AHHHHH. You MUST read that series SOOONNNN. The Time Between Us and the Merrick Brothers series are also books I hope to get to. This weeks TTT is dangerous, b/c it’s adding to my book WANTS. :).

    I’m SO excited for All Our Yesterdays!! It sounds so cool! Fangirl sounds so awesome as well… I cannot wait to read it! Shadow & Bone is one that I’m planning on reading as well! You have some great picks on here! Second Chance Summer and A Midsummer’s Nightmare are both good summer reads! I hope you enjoy all of the books!!

  10. Sunny Duvall

    I’ve been really wanting to read How to Love and Just Like Fate! Shadow and Bone was FANTASTIC! My sister just got All Our Yesterdays and when she told me about it, it sounds GREAT. Happy reading, I know it will be awesome 😉

  11. starryeyedjen

    Haha…seems like no one can ever stick to ten…part of the reason I don’t succumb and do my own top ten each week. Too hard. 🙂 I’ll be reading Belladonna soon, too. And those dust collectors need to be read STAT. Especially S&B and Storm. So good. 🙂

  12. Lauren Elizabeth

    Ooh yes, definitely put Shadow & Bone off the dust shelf immediately! Can’t wait to hear what you think of it. 🙂 I’m super excited for Just Like Fate and Fangirl too. Awesome list!

  13. kit

    I loved Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, definitely a must-read! And I really want to read Fangirl, too. Great list!
