Top Ten Books on Daisy's TBR List for Summer 2013!


Hi guys! It's time for another Top Ten Tuesday and this week we're talking about the books on your summer TBR list! Are you as excited for long sunny days and barbecues and lazing by the pool as I am?
As usual, I'll be featuring books that are actually released this summer, between June 21st and September 22nd.

More information about TTT and future topics can be found here

The Sequels


The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson: Ok, this is slightly cheating, because I've already read and LOVED it, but I do plan on rereading it when I get my shiny finished copy. Seriously, if you're not reading this series yet, WHAT ARE YOU DOING??? GO READ IT! NOW!

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas: So, all of you guys who got it at BEA or somewhere else need to stop tormenting me with your gushing, because I am PINING for this book!! I've been pining for it since I finished Throne of Glass, or maybe since I first read this story on Fictionpress, but I NEED IT RIGHT NOW! Everything shall be dropped when this lands in my mailbox!

False Sight by Dan Krokos: I LOVED False Memory and I cannot wait to see what happens next with Miranda and Peter and EVERYONE!

Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier: Shadowfell was so, SO good! I don't know why I hadn't picked up a book by this author before, but I'm definitely excited for the next book in this series!

The Books By Authors Who've Stolen My Heart Before


The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black: LOVE Holly Black's writing and this sounds all kinds of exciting!

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales: I adored Past Perfect, I'm pretty sure this will be awesome as well!

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein: I cannot gush enough about Code Name Verity! That book just ripped my heart out and stomped on it and it was GLORIOUS! So obviously I'll be ALL OVER Rose Under Fire. I even have a finished copy of the UK edition already staring me down :)

How To Lose A Bride in One Night by Sophie Jordan: Sophie Jordan's historical romances are among the absolute best in my humble opinion and this one sounds like a winner to me!

The Debuts


The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas: YA debut, I found out she writes historical romance! Must check out! But seriously, this book just sounds all kinds of awesome and I think it'll make my fantasy/paranormal loving heart happy :)

All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrell: It sounds majorly creepy! I'm hoping to just finish this in one go, because I can't imagine being able to put it down!

The 100 by Kass Morgan: another book I have BEA envy over ;) CANNOT WAIT!

The Mythology Fix


The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White: EEEE! EGYPTIAN MYTHOLOGY! All of the flailing excitement!!

Antigoddess by Kendare Blake: Greek mythology geeks unite! Seriously, a GODDESS WAR! I cannot imagine anything more epic!



So that's it for me, what's on you Summer TBR list? Recommendations for mine? I'll be unemployed this summer and have lots of reading time available :)

  13. If I were you, I would immediately dive into The Coldest Girl in Coldtown once I got ahold of it... sounds so good! Great list!

    I still need to read the girl of fire and thorns series! I am so ashamed :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I will definitely make it a priority! I'm just waiting for my pre-order :)
      Haha, don't be ashamed! Be happy you have this whole amazing series to discover and characters to fall in love with! :)

  14. I LOVE Sherry Thomas. My favorite of hers is Not Quite a Husband, His At Night, and Ravishing the Heiress. Her debut historical was Private Arrangements and I was living abroad at the time and remember calling my parents to buy it because I was DYING to read it.

    I'm glad she's getting a lot of buzz for The Burning Sky, but at the same time, I'm a little jealous because I have to share her. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ooh, I'm definitely checking her historical romance out as well! it sounds REALLY good! :D
      And lol, I totally get the jealousy ;)

  21. I am dying to get my hands on Rose Under Fire! Code Name Verity was one of the very best books I read last year. The Holly Black book sounds terrific -- just finished Doll Bones and loved it!

  22. Hi Daisy,

    So glad to see Holly Black on your list. I have Rags and Bones on mine -- I just got the ARC -- it features Black's re-vision of Carmilla, one of my favourite vampire stories (a story that happens to predate Bram Stoker).
    Oh, and Neil Gaiman is also a contributor. How can I not be excited?
