Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List

Top Ten TuesdayHi, Readers!

       Now that the temperature is rising and school is drawing to an end, one of the things that I am looking forward to most this summer is kicking back and enjoying some good books.  It seems like my schedule has been so hectic lately that I haven't gotten to read as much as usual, so for this Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the Broke and the Bookish blog, I chose to make a list of the Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR (to be read) List.  Please note that I haven't read any of these books yet, so look for reviews of them coming soon!

1. Cinder, by Marissa Meyer

Still haven't read it, but I reaaaaaally want to.  It will happen eventually.  I'm considering buying the book myself (sorry, library!) because it has received excellent reviews from almost every blog that I follow.

2. Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell

I've seen this title come up on so many different book review blogs that I should definitely give it a shot.  This book will be perfect for a day at the pool because it's a well-known novel that would make a great conversation starter.

3. The Glass Castle, by Jeannette Walls

This book was recommended to me by a trusted blogger, so it must be awesome.  It sounds a little dark, judging by the short description on Goodreads, so I'll save it for a day when I'm bored at home.

4. Vitro, by Jessica Khoury

Although dystopian novels are starting to get a little old, this one has an intriguing plot line that made me instantly add it to my TBR list.  Plus, there's an island on the cover, and that makes me think of tropical vacations.

5. Fat Boy vs the Cheerleaders, by Geoff Herbach

After reading Herbach's Stupid Fast and Nothing Special, I know that I have to read all of his books.  Herbach's novels are filled with so much personality and spunk that they literally make me laugh out loud.  What's better for a boring summer day than a hilarious YA novel?

6. The Dollhouse Asylum, by Mary Gray

The cover of this book is positively frightening, but it reminds me a bit of Uglies, by Scott Westerfeld, so of course I have to add it to my summer TBR list.  It looks spooky to me, so it would be perfect for a camping trip.

7. Gorgeous, by Paul Rudnick

Dresses that make an ordinary girl transform into the most beautiful woman alive?  At first, it sounds like a pretty sexist novel, but what else am I supposed to waste my time reading this summer?

8. Red, by Alison Cherry

This book seems like proof that authors are running out of things to write about.  I mean, who would write an entire novel about people who have red hair?  But, its description made me laugh, so therefore I must read it.

9. Geek Girl, by Holly Smale

I guess I'm a sucker for transformation stories, and geek to supermodel piqued my interest.  Plus, this book's cover is absolutely adorable.

10. To All the Boys I've Loved, by Jenny Han

I actually saw an advertisement for this book in a magazine, which means that it could possibly, maybe, sort of become popular.  It seems like the perfect realistic fiction book for the summer.

While I'm at the beach or relaxing this summer, these are the books that I will be reaching for.  What books are you looking forward to reading this summer?  I'd love to hear any suggestions - feel free to leave a comment below.

Happy reading!


  1. While I didn't love Cinder (of course I had to be one of the few people that didn't) I did like it enough to give Scarlet (the second in the series) a shot. In fact, that's the book that I'm currently reading and I'm liking it much more than Cinder. Hope you enjoy your summer reading.

  2. OOh nice! I wasn't really one for Cinder either, but I do hope you enjoy it! Wasn't brave enough to venture to Scarlet since my TBR mountain is out of control! Hope you enjoy all your summer TBR reads!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Cinder is great, and the following books get even better! Hope you have the chance to read it this summer!

  4. Yep, I need to read Cinder too. :)

  5. Thanks for stopping by! I followed back! Great list of books. I have a few of these already on my tbr, I might have to check out the rest of them.


I love comments! Feel free to ask questions or say whatever is on your mind.
