Top Ten Tuesday: Summer Reads


I’ve been meaning to participate in The Broke and the Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday forever (read: like three months), but I kept forgetting for one reason or another. But today I finally remembered! Woo!

The topic for today is Top Ten Books At The Top Of My Summer TBR List. I currently have a TBR list about 75 books long, but there are a number I’m excited to tackle right away. (This list is fiction only, as I tend to plan less with nonfiction and just pick it up as it catches my eye)



The Yonahlossee Riding Camp For Girls by Anton DiSclafani

The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes

Without a Summer by Mary Robinette Kowal

Tampa by Alissa Nutting

Children of Jacaranda Tree by Sahar Delijani

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope by Rhonda Riley

Oleander Girl  by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

In The Garden of Stone by Susan Tekulve

A Lady Cyclist’s Guide to Kashgar by Suzanne Joinson


What are you excited to tackle this summer? Not everyone gets a summer vacation (I sure don’t), but doesn’t it seem like there’s more reading time anyway?
