Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we list our top tens! It’s been two months since my last Top Ten Tuesday. It’s been a very long time. I missed doing it! So here I am! This week’s topic is “top ten books at the top of my summer TBR list.” My list is actually “books on my TBR that I will read for the summer.” I have tons of books that I’ve gain through bookstores and giveaways. These are the books I will read and review for my blog.  (The layout to this top ten is kind of wonky/sloppy.)

Tahereh Mafi - 1 Shatter Me Tahereh Mafi - 2 Unravel Me





Shatter Me + Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

I’ve checked these two books out from the library, but I have yet to read it. It is next after I type up my review for Perfect Escape. The covers of this series screams at me. I have heard a lot of conflicting things about this series, which makes me hesitant to start reading it. I don’t want it to make me frustrated. (It may tbh.)

Robin Palmer - The Corner of Bitter and Sweet







The Corner of Bitter and Sweet (ARC) by Robin Palmer

Mother-daughter relationship! One’s a famous TV star, the other is famous for being the daughter of said TV star. Two words: Train wreck. Not my words. (It’s in the synopsis.) I hope when I read this book, it’s a good type of train wreck about relationship.

Sarah Strohmeyer - How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True







How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer

You always need to read a book that contains some sort of summer job. Doesn’t the cover scream that it’ll be the perfect light summer read? It does to me.

Leila Howland - Nantucket Blue







Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland

Since it’s the summer, why not a YA novel about summer in Nantucket? ‘Cause I have yet to read a book that’s set in the summer.







The Elemental series by Brigid Kemmerer

I have to! They’re an arm away on my desk, screaming at me to read about these brothers.

Claire LaZebnik - The Trouble with Flirting








The Trouble With Flirting by Claire LaZebnik

I should read a classic over the summer. And why not a retelling of Mansfield Park? (I’ve never been a big fan of this Austen story, but I’m crossing my fingers that this book will change that.)

Keira Cass - The Selection







The Selection by Kiera Cass

Like the Shatter Me series, The Selection is another book/series that I have to read. If only because of the pretty dresses on the covers. (Lie!) I have the second book in my stack and I would like to get to it soon.

Alexandra Coutts - Tumble & Fall








Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts

It’s all about the cover, baby! I love it so much! That ampersand. LOVE IT. (Hopefully, it gets to me soon.)


What books are on your list?

    OMG, The Selection is pretty good!!! You’re in for some fun! <3
    And Shatter Me, I'm in the process of reading that right now, but from what I've read, it seems to be pretty good too!
    Great list, thanks for giving me more books on my TBR List!

  2. I just added Storm and Tumble & Fall to my TBR list. I’ve heard about The Selection, I think it looks really good! :)

  3. How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer does sound like a great summer read! Love that cover, too. Enjoy.

    The Corner of Bitter and Sweet looks great. I’ve just added it to my TBR list. I hope you enjoy The Selection, it’s had very mixed reviews. I enjoyed it, but enjoyed it for what it was, a light bit of fluff!

    I’m currently reading Nantucket Blue. Great summer read for sure. And I would definitely recommend getting to The Selection series soon. Those books are 100% book crack!

    My TTT List

  7. Nantucket Blue is EVERYWHERE today. I’ve seen it on so many people’s lists that I’ve had to add it to my Goodreads to-read list. Same with Tumble & Fall. I’m a sucker for gorgeous typography, so the ampersand on that last book makes me so happy.

  8. terribruce says:

    Yeah, my list was “books on my TBR list I will read…in the near future.” :-) I have so much catching up to do!!! The Selection has been on my TBR list for a while – I really need to get to that! Good list!

  9. Rebecca says:

    Shatter Me and Unravel Me me are both amazing! The writing style is so unique and the characters are so passionate. I hope you love them just as much as me! Tumble & Fall looks really good, too. Happy reading. <3

  10. I liked the Selection. Hopefully you will too. Have a great Summer of reading!
    Here is my Tuesday Post.
