Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s theme: Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR list.

Have summer plans? Have summer reading plans? Have a whole stack of it just waiting for the horrible, hot season to hit (Lyn HATES summertime)? Well, this week, Lyn and Bekka discuss the books we plan on reading for the summer solstice!

 

Talon by Julie Kagawa: Dragons. Heat. Makes perfect sense to add this to the pile for summer!

Salt and Storm by Kendall Kulper: This book reminds me of the ocean, a place I love to visit this time of the year.

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo:  This one is a HOT pick of mine! Finishing off the series promises to bring a storm of tears.

The Walled City by Ryan Graudin: Culture is vital to survive the summer months.

Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley:  Kat Kennedy. Summer brings back recollections of school reading, and a school-themed book is perfect to relive old memories.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.  I broke my usual streak of reading the book before seeing the movie with this title.  But I thought the story seemed interesting, and since there’s no hope of a second movie really, the only way to find out what happens is to read the book.

Feral by Holly Schindler.  This thriller is pitched as The Lovely Bones meets Black Swan so basically ALL THE YES.

Servants of the Storm by Delilah S Dawson.  I honestly have no idea what this one is about but I am obsessed with the cover.

Where Silence Gathers by Kelsey Sutton. I looooooved Some Quiet Place – absolutely freaking LOVED it – so you know I need to read its companion novel.

The Merciless by Danielle Vega. I love horror, and I think the scariest horror is about religion – even though I’m atheist.  It’s weird, I don’t get it.  But there it is.  I’m hoping this one is everything I wanted The Blessed to be.

  1. Talon: dragons and Kagawa, the perfect combination.
    Salt & storm sounds good, I can’t wait for Ruin and Rising. When I get my copy, I’m going to devour it.
    The walled city; such an interesting promise.

    Vampire Academy; haha. I don’t expect a second movie either, that was so bad.
    Servants of the storm; such a creepy cover, I’m intrigued by it.

    Happy reading!

    Yes to Ruin and Rising, I liked the first book more than the second so I’m hoping the third is like the first. Read the Vampire Academy, much better than any movie they could make.

  3. I also really, really want to read Talon, Ruin and Rising, and Walled City. I unfortunately got declined for WC (not surprising due to geographical reasons, but hey, at least I tried…), so all I’m waiting now are Talon and R&R 😀 I want to read The Merciless, too! I heard it brings horror to a whole new genre, and I wanna experience that 🙂

  4. I would suggest you read VA. It is really a great series and keeps you engaged. Plus Rose is kick ass and I love her even though I’ve only read three of the six books of the series so far.

      That’s been my same problem with that series, too. I just can’t get past the first 50 pages or so. Maybe even less. But I liked the story when watching the movie, so I’m going to try to push myself to get into the books. I feel like the only one who hasn’t read them.
