Top Ten Books On Our Summer TBR List

For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate, click here!
Today we are talking about all those books we plan on reading this summer!!!

Jamie's Picks




I love contemporary YA allllll the time but I really gravitate towards it during the summer months -- especially the romances.

1. The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West: Love Kasie West's books and this looks perfect for my poolside reading this summer!!

2. Fans of the Impossible Life by Kate Scelsa: “This is the story of a girl, her gay best friend, and the boy in love with both of them.” It had me at the first sentence of the summary.

3. The Revenge Playbook by Rachael Allen:  I loved her book 17 First Kisses and I love me a fun revenge plot! 

4. Last Will & Testament by Dahlia Adler: I really enjoyed Dahlia's YA debut, Behind the Scenes, and I'm excited to check out her new adult novel!! Also, I want to read her next installment to the YA series -- Under the Lights. I couldn't choose between the two so I'm mentioning both!!

Lauren's Picks

 

5. 5 to 1 by Holly Bodger: This sounds like an amazing read and I love books set in an entirely different culture than mine.

6. Ruthless by Carolyn Lee Adams: The main character is the sixth girl to get taken and to be punished. The first five didn't make it out alive. This one wants to.

Tahleen's Picks




7. Ana of California by Andi Teran: I have been waiting for this to come out since I heard about it. I love Anne of Green Gables, which this book is based on, and I like California. So it's pretty much a win-win.

8. The Nature of the Beast by Louise Penny: This is the 11th and latest installment in the Three Pines series, and I'm curious to see where it's going since most major plot lines wrapped up in the last book. I'm also not sure how I feel about the ending of the last book, and I'm hoping this one will be better.

9. Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee: I don't think this really needs an explanation.

10. The Martian by Andy Weir: On audio. I've heard a lot of great things about this one, and I'd like to read (listen) to it before the movie comes out.


What books are on your list for this summer??

  2. I very nearly put both your choices of Harper Lee and Andy Weir on my list! Good diverse list you have here. My Top Ten Tuesday list was not, but I plan on checking some of these other titles that I'm not familiar with out. ~Beth @ Perpetual New Girl

  3. Great picks! I heard The Fill-In Boyfriend was very sweet and fluffy :D I really enjoyed 5 to 1. Powerful and deep. I loved the alternating use of prose and verse. I hope you like it, Lauren! Yessss, Go Set A Watchman. I feel like I've been ready for this book since forever. I'd love to read The Martian some time. I think it was one of the Goodreads award winners but the movie trailer looks super :)

  5. I really wish I could read The Fill-In Boyfriend and The Revenge Playbook. They both should be really fun, light reads perfect for the Summer. Have fun reading ladies :D

  6. Nice picks. I read a review copy of 5 to 1 a while back. Beautiful story, if not a little painful.

  10. Nice list. The Martian has been on my list for a while. And, yes, the Louise Penny book - well, any Louise Penny book is anticipated by me. From the moment I finish one book, I'm longing for the next. LOL

  11. I totally forgot to add Go Set A Watchman to my own list, and I've been excited about it ever since I heard about it! I've also heard really good things about The Martian, so maybe I'll get to it this summer. Great list!

  13. THE FILL-IN BOYFRIEND does look perfect for poolside reading. GO SET A WATCHMAN is on my list as well. Can't wait!

  14. I’m also going to read 5 to 1, The Martian, and Go Set A Watchman. I don’t think I’ll be able to get to them this summer, though. Too much other stuff to read.

  18. Glad to see Louise Penny has a new book out. Curious about it. I think Harper Lee is on everyone's TBR list this summer. Can't wait to read it. I'm hosting a giveaway to celebrate the release of my new novel, Her Sister's Shoes, next Wednesday, June 24. $50 and $25 Gift Cards included. Ashley at Chronicles

  20. The Revenge Playbook was such a good read. Definitely one of my favourites this year! And can’t wait to read so many of the other books listed. Happy Reading! :D

  21. Honestly, all of these are new to me. I have been trying not to look to hard at new releases since I have been working at slimming down my TBr but this TTT always increases it again :)
    Happy Reading!
