Top Ten Books On Daisy's Summer TBR List

To learn more about Top Ten Tuesday or see the list of future topics click here.

So I'll be focusing on books that will be released during the summer :)

The Sequels That I Needed Yesterday

The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas: ALL. THE. EXCITEMENT> I mean, SERIOUSLY, I just LOVED The Burning Sky and I need this sequel in my life because Iolanthe and Titus and yes to all the magic and intrigue and just YES OK?

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas: I cannot begin to tell you how jealous I am of the people who actually got an ARC of this at BEA. Because holy crap, I will drop everything to read this when it finally arrives in my mailbox. Already pre-ordered and everything. GIVE ME MORE CELAENA AND CHAOL AND DORIAN AND just all the excitement that I know is coming.

The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness: I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and will scoop this up when it comes out!

The Series Starters

Get Even by Gretchen McNeil: this sort of sounds a bit like Pretty Little Liars and I'm always down for something like that.

Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini: after loving her Unearthly series, I will reading basically anything that Josephine Angelini writes and this sounds really exciting!

The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson: I've heard amazing things about this and can't wait to see for myself!

Half a King by Joe Abercrombie: Joe Abercrombie's first YA series, I'm SO in!

The Standalones (I think)

(The Witch of) Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper: WITCHES! I will always be down for anything that promises witchy goodness!

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins: so this will probably be on a lot of lists, but I'm so excited that it's finally almost coming out! I think it'll be worth the wait :)

Just Like the Movies by Kelly Fiore: this sounds super cute and I just love the cover!

Bonus addition that technically is released in spring:
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo:
I need more Alina and STURMHOND and just more of this world and Leigh Bardugo's writing, even though I'll be SO sad to see this series end...


  1. I have a feeling Isla is going to be on a LOT of lists this week! I'm also eager for Heir of Fire! It should be AMAZING!

  2. I'm with you on Heir of Fire. SO jealous of everyone who got their hands on an ARC.

  3. THE PERILOUS SEA is on my list! Ahhhh, HEIR OF FIRE is so good!!!! I hope you get it soon1 It's on Netgalley! Or was, at least!!! I can't wait for TRIAL BY FIRE, yep! THE KISS OF DECEPTION is soo good. Definitely a worthy read! ISLA is my #1, oh yes!!! I was GOING to add RUIN AND RISING, but I'll be done before Spring ends, SO...!
    Great choices, Daisy!

  4. I am going to look for the new Stephanie Perkins book, too. I also want to read Attachments by Rainbow Rowell.

  5. Wait. Joe Abercrombie's doing a YA series?

    I think I might have died and gone to paradise.

  6. Yes, yes a thousand times yes to the Isla and the happily ever after!

  7. I'm so excited about Heir of Fire and I can't believe I forgot to add it to my list! Huge yes to Isla as well, because the other books in the series were great.

  8. Totally with you on the Abercrombie book :D

  9. I am really excited for The Witch Of Salt & Storm too, I saw it on Netgalley and knew I HAD to have it! Great picks :)

    Check out my TTT!

  10. The Kiss Of Deception is soooooo good.

    I read Half A King and it was, alright, but not my favorite. I have Salt & Storm on my stack too!

  11. I haven't read any of the Throne Of Glass series..... yet! It is on my my Top 10 list with a thought to getting Heir Of Fire when it comes out, very excited to finally getting a chance to read them.

  12. I'm glad I'm not the only one still holding off reading The Kiss of Deception - it's on my shelf, waiting!

  13. I was just looking at The Perilous Sea yesterday thinking should I start this...I LOVED the first book

  14. Loved Kiss of Deception! Liked Half a King. Want Heir of Fire and Salt and Storm!

  15. I haven't heard of any of those books! I need to check some of them out, and a few had really cute covers.

    Have a great week.

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  16. I feel bad I haven't any books by the authors you on the list I need to get on that. I have the throne of glass and shadow and bone series just haven't read them.

  17. Great list!! Trial By Fire made my TTT as well. Isla and Get Even are both on my TBR list as well. My blog partner had to wait over 2 hours in line at BEA to get a copy of Heir of Fire. I haven't started the series yet, but clearly I should.

    I hope you enjoy all of your books this summer!!

    Here is my TTT: http://jacquesbooknook.blogspot.com/2014/06/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-books-on-my.html

  18. You have some great books on your summer TBR. I'm reading Ruin and Rising right now and I want to read The Perilous Sea soon. Good luck with your TBR and happy reading!

  19. Nice list, i hope you get to read them all

  20. Definitely agree with you on a few of these. I'm psyched to read Heir of Fire and am eagerly anticipating Isla and the Happily Ever After. I'm going to start Ruin & Rising tonight, I think. :)

  21. Get Even was AWESOME. I'm about to start Ruin and Rising but I'm a little bit scared to do so. I'm VERY excited to read Isla, but I forgot to put it on my list. Doh.

  22. Great list. I have Just Like the Movies on my kindle and I'm looking forward to it. Thanks so much for hosting this weekly. I hope your able to read them all this summer. Have a great week.

  24. Late again. Sorry, not my week. I have come to put togeter I diverse list, though, that I hope will give me a lot of fun this summer. Thanks for the prompt.

  25. Happy Reading! I'm going to have to add several you mentioned to my TBR list... especially those series starters!

  26. I have half these books on my TBR as well. Haven't decided what my summer read's are going to be yet. I guess I should figure that out.
    I have been eagerly awaiting Isla & the Happily Ever After since last September, which was the original street date. Can't wait until it comes in. I also ordered Just Like in the Movies.
    Trial by Fire is near the top of my list. Picked it up at BEA as well as Salt & Storm. Perilous Sea and Leigh Bardugo round out the books I have on my reading pile.
    It's a really good list you compiled.

  27. Looks like you have a great list all picked out. I can't wait to dive back into series on my shelves that I should have finished or been caught up on a long time ago. There is a series on my shelf that I'm about 7 books behind on! I think my summer reads will mostly be catching up on the series I have started.
