Top Ten Tuesday: On My Summer TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is weekly meme created by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. They created this feature because they're "particularly fond of lists" and since I also enjoy lists, I've decided to participate in this fun feature. This week we're to list the top ten books on our summer to be read list. This will kind of be an extension of a recent list, Neglected Books. And by the way, I admit that I kind of did that week wrong. I had it written down as a freebie week but it was really a week to redo a previous week. Ah well. :) Some of these books are ones that I've been waiting for, others have been waiting for me, and still others I don't even own yet (and I shouldn't buy those as my shelves are overflowing). Let's hope I get through all of these this summer! :) Don't forget to check out their blog for a full list of everyone participating.

1. Shadow of Night - Deb Harkness
Without a doubt this is the book I am must excited about this summer. It's the next instalment in the All Souls Trilogy that started with A Discovery of Witches which I LOVED and you can read my review here if you missed it :) And extra awesomeness - I *just* got a NetGalley copy of this book and I am SO EXCITED!

2. Where We Belong - Emily Giffin
Coming in at a close second is Emily Giffin's latest novel. I love love love her books and I can't wait to see what the next one will be like.

3. The Lucky Dog Matchmaking Service - Beth Kendrick
I've mentioned numerous times that I adore Beth Kendrick so I'm looking forward to being able to read her new one...once I buy it...

4. The Last Boyfriend - Nora Roberts
Nora Roberts is my romance guilty pleasure author. Her books are light and sweet and I'm really looking forward to the second book in the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy!

5.  A Life That Fits - Heather Wardell
I've been working my way through Heather's works and I'm almost caught up. I'm hoping to get this one finished so I can get my way to her latest which I'm really excited for!

6. The Singles - Meredith Goldstein
Is there a better time than summer to read a book that features weddings? I didn't think so. Plus I've heard amazing things about this one so I'm really excited about it.

7. Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen
One of the two Austen books I have yet to read. It's definitely not "light" reading but I really need to finish reading Austen's novels!

8. The Wedding Beat - Devan Sipher
See #6.

9. I Couldn't Love You More - Jillian Medoff
I've got this to review for the 21st and I'm really excited about it because it's supposed to be amazing. (Jennifer Weiner has been tweeting and talking about it for weeks). And bonus - for some reason the publisher sent me two copies so you will see Books Etc.'s first giveaway in the future...

10. The Meryl Streep Movie Club - Mia March
This one's been getting a lot of good buzz and since I'm a Meryl Streep fan I think this book will be pretty interesting! I loved Friday Night Knitting Club and the movie of The Jane Austen Book Club and since this book is compared to those I think it'll be a winner! (PS those are two very awkward sentences but my brain is tired so please excuse me :) hehe)

Hm. It appears I have a long list...better get reading! What books are on your summer to be read list?

Happy reading :)


  1. Great list! I read 3 and 8 - enjoyed them both. Definitely reading #2! Also wanted to read Construct a Couple by Talli Roland and Dog Days but Elsa Watson (I think that's her name). Also need to finish editing my next book so we'll see...Good luck with your list and happy reading!

    1. Thanks Meredith! I've heard great things about CONSTRUCT A COUPLE. Good luck with the editing! :)

  2. The Meryl Streep Movie Club sounds like a great read. And Jane Austen and summer go together like peanut butter and jelly. Great list.


Thanks for stopping by Books Etc.!
