Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List

I'm pleasantly surprised that this was easier to put together than I thought it would be. Now, I didn't do too hot on my Spring TBR List--I read four of fourteen books. Buut, I already plan on reading a bunch of them very soon, so ha, list! Also, those books won't be repeated here. (On the Fence, The Vanishing Season, Ruin and Rising.) Also again, I'll be getting some books tomorrow, and those might have made this list. And because I'll be doing ReReadathon and Shelf Sweeper next month, I won't be posting all the books I'll be reading for that either. Last but not least, if I wasn't currently reading Heir of Fire and Sinner, then those would be on this list, too. SO, here are fourteen books I'll be reading this summer! OR ELSE.

(Release dates link to Goodreads!)

for your (my) reviewing pleasure
If this is anything like its novella Poison Dance, then it will probably be good.

TARZAN RETELLING! WATCH OUT FOR THAT--BANG, OOOH, TREE! (Yes, I know that's George of the Jungle, but it's like Tarzan, and you know you started singing along with that song, SO YEAH.)

I have a thing for maps, and there's A MAP ON THE COVER, and I'm excited to finally start this book this month.

a (hopefully) killer sequel
The Naturals was extremely good, and there's no way I'm waiting until November to read this, so a summer read it is! (Please be at least as good as your predecessor. Please.)

it's still far, far away
Once upon a time, there was a book I almost forgot to put on this list. But then I did, and oh my gosheth. Can I read this now pleeease, and mayeth it have lots of cameos?!

new from a favorite author
I still haven't read Falling For You, which is horrible of me, but I still want to get my hands on and read the latest from Lisa Schroeder!

a pretty house i'm staying
 the hell away from
If there's one thing I learned from Monster House and every scary movie ever, it's that you NEVER GO into a creepy house. But you can read about them. RIGHT?!

the hooked middle grade
Hello, it's about Hook's daughter, hook yeah I'm reading this!

why aren't there ARCs of this
Maybe if Rick Yancey wouldn't've said readers will be SHOCKED by what happened to Evan I wouldn't be so needy for this book. But, YOU KNOW. Maybe I'd swim across a sea to read this. (Okay, not really, because I can't swim, so then I'd never get to read it. Also: sharks.)

cheatin' on my TBR
Imagine how much cooler this'll be in SUUUMMMEEERRR!!

they're coming to town
This will be my second time meeting Debra...

And my second time meeting Shannon...

And if you count ALA Midwinter my second time meeting Amy, so I should probably read their books before they come here.

But this will be my first time meeting Kasie, and I AM SO EXCITED! The Distance Between Us was so fluffy and cute I just canNOT. So her books, I'll be reading them ALL.

What's on your TBR this summer?!


  1. Hah Isla IS so far away, I didn't even consider it a summer release because school will start by then! Also, Let's Get Lost looks SO GOOD!

  4. Isla is so far away!!!!! Awesome list! I too really want/need to read Pivot Point I loved Distance Between us and I have heard nothing but good things about her other books. =)

  5. HAHAHA!!! Love your comments for each book, such wit ;D I've actually never realized that the cover of Let's Get Lost is a map. *FACEPALM* I'm a huge fan of maps in books too, and since this one is on the huge freaking COVER... Definitely need it!

    Have a great summer reading!
