Yesterday I shared my list of Christmas books and movies I plan to read and watch over the holiday season. And today’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and The Bookish) is sharing our seasonal TBR list, which for me is a Summer TBR.
Okay, so I have a confession… as a mood reader (and having been in a big book slump this year) I’m not so great at sticking to TBR lists. BUT I had a lot of fun putting together the last TTT seasonal tbr for Spring a few months ago, so when I saw this topic, I was super excited to join in again! This time around my seasonal list is deliberately broad (and a bit on the big side — there’s a few more than ten, #sorrynotsorry) so that I’m free to choose whatever takes my fancy. Most of these books have been on my master TBR (which is so ridiculously long) and are books I’ve been wanting to read for a while. To simplify things, I’ve got them in 3 categories: 2017 releases that I really need to get to, backlisted titles by authors whose books I have read I’ve adored, and a few that are specific beach/summer reads.
So without further ado, here’s my Summer TBR list and don’t forget let me know if you’ve read any of these or if they’re on your list too!
+ Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han: I’ve been putting it off for too long because I don’t want this adorable series to end, I really just need to read it already!
+ When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon: A cute rom-com! I’ve heard so many good things about this one and this summer seems the perfect time.
+ They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera: I’ve also heard a lot about this one this year.. slightly hesitant that it’s gonna break me though. Tell me if I’m wrong though, pleeeeease!
+ Alex, Approximately by Jean Bennett: This sounds like another cute summer read.
+ The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: Can’t believe I haven’t read it already, but I need to see what all the hype and praise is all about (it sounds like it’s very deserving hype and praise) .
+ Words In Deep Blue by Cath Crowley: Bookshop love story? UM YES PLEASE!
+ Emery Lord: Start of Me And You // When We Collided // The Names They Gave Us: LOVED Open Road Summer (like top 10 all time fave)
+ Morgan Matson: Since You’ve Been Gone // The Unexpected Everything: I did not expect to love Second Chance Summer as much as I did, but Morgan’s writing grabbed me
+ Kasie West: The Fill-In Boyfriend // P.S. I Like You // By Your Side: Kasie’s books are my go-to for sweet YA romances and they’re perfect summertime reads
+ Nicola Yoon: The Sun Is Also A Star: Everything Everything was a such a unique story, and I really like the sound of this one — the summary doesn’t give much away but what can I say? I’m a sucker for a destiny/fate/universe love story.
+ Jandy Nelson: I’ll Give you the Sun // The Sky is Everywhere: These two have been on my TBR for SO long, and I bought them recently as a box set… SO NOTHING IS STOPPING ME NOW!
+ Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland: a light summer read and fun romance, what more could I want for the beach?
+ Rules of Summer by Joanna Philbin: Somehow I keep coming across this one at the library AND the bookstore, so I think somebody is trying to tell me something…
+ The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen: Love a Sarah Dessen book and the characters and stories she creates.
+ The Season of You and Me by Robin Constantine: Love a light, sweet contemporary and this one sound like it’s right up my alley.
+ What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick (Re-Read): Another of my favourite authors — LOVED My Life Next Door. I’ve been feeling like a re-read of this one for a while and this summer seems the perfect time.
