Top Ten Tuesday - Top Books I Will Read This Summer

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. They feature a different top ten list every week. This week's topic is the top ten books on my TBR list for this Summer! Of course we all know that a TBR is a fickle thing. I may or may not actually get to these books this Summer.

1. Fairest by Marissa Meyer

2. Little Peach by Peggy Kern
3. Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz
4. An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
5. Skyscraping by Cordelia Jensen

6. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera


7. Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee
8. Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke


9. A Whole New World by Liz Braswell
10. Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman


What books are on your Summer TBR? Are there any books on this list that you have read? Where should I start?

  1. Little Peach is great! It's a tough read, but one well worth reading. I'm really excited for Skyscraping and More Happy Than Not. I don't know if I'll get to them soon, but I definitely want to read them sometime. :)

    1. Kaitlin, I have heard great things about Little Peach so I am super excited. And I am pretty sure some of these may not be read this summer. I am sure you know how fickle TBR choices can be. ;)

  2. More Happy than Not and Damsel Distressed are two that I keep seeing popping up places and they both sounds great. Hope you get to and enjoy them all!

  5. I didn't write it down; I guess I just assumed, like tech editor, that we are all going to read Go Set a Watchman!

    Here's what I hope to read this summer!

  6. Do you think that the Harper Lee book will be on everyone's list this summer? I suspect so.

  9. I forgot to include Harper Lee on my list! I hope to read it this summer... or whenever I make it to the top of my library's hold list. I loved Fairest! Can't wait for Winter to be released.

    1. Trish, I just finished Skyscraping today. I read it within twenty four hours and it was AMAZING!!! I am not usually a fan of books written in verse, but this one was so good. I think I was in tears for half the book!

  12. I just finished An Ember in the Ashes last week, and I really, really liked it a lot! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I'm really intrigued by A Whole New World. I like the idea of re-imagining the Disney films, but the summary for that one sounds a little generic. I'll be curious to read your review. Happy reading!

    1. Thanks so much! I have already seen some mixed reviews for A Whole New World, but I am trying not to let that sway me. I am hoping it's really good. I love Disney movies and I love retellings so we will see if this one lives up to the hype.

  13. GO SET A WATCHMAN, for sure. I think it's on just about everyone's TBR list this summer. A WHOLE NEW WORLD and DAMSEL DISTRESSED also look really good.

    Happy TTT!

    1. Oh yes Susan, I have seen it on many lists. I am really hoping it lives up to the hype!

  14. I'm looking forward to Go Set a Watchman too! Brave New World is an interesting read. I read it last year and found it probably my favorite of the dystopian "classics" I've read.

  16. I'm seeing An Ember in the Ashes a lot today!! The book was SO good. I hope you enjoy it!

  17. Ooooh Damsel Distressed! I should have put that on my list too! Also, Ember was good! And Little Peach was... well, I won't say "GOOD", but it was remarkable and memorable and important and worth the read. That's the only way I can describe it! And I need Skyscraping! Jealous of your pre order :D Hope you enjoy all of these!!

  20. I'm torn on reading 'Go Set A Watchman'. Part of me is dying to read it, but the rest of me can't seem to shake Harper Lee's previous stance on releasing new work and the strange timing around the finding of (and sale of) this one. Hmm.

    1. I kind of know what you mean, but Harper Lee did release a statement saying she was excited about releasing this book. And of course there was the investigation that determined she was of sound mind and she wasn't being taken advantage of. I just figure she can change her mind about publishing her work. :) I am choosing to be optimistic.

  21. Looks like quite the list for this summer :D I'm trying to get a few of my in progress series caught up :)
