Top Ten Tuesday #10: Books at the top of my Summer tbr list


Is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where each week they post a new top ten list and ask fellow bloggers to share their lists on that topic.

Today's top ten topic is: Top Ten books at the top of my Summer tbr list.

With so many brilliant books in my tbr pile, I had a hard time whittling my list down to just ten books, so I kind of cheated and listed eleven books instead!

 

Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts | The Vow by Jessica Martinez | The Truth About You & Me by Amanda Grace | Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.

These four books are my review books that I'm most excited about starting over the Summer. I love my contemporary reads, especially the really gritty ones and Tumble & Fall, The Vow and The Truth About You & Me sound like something that I would enjoy. And Crown of Midnight has been one of my most anticipated sequels of the year, so far the early reviews have been highly praising.



I have had both of these gorgeous books since last year, when the lovely Mandee from Vegan YA Nerds sent me copies through a swap. Again I have heard such wonderful things about both books and I think it's about time I finally read both of them. 





Of course my Summer reads won't be complete without some road trip books. I loved Jessi Kirby's Golden, so knew I had to read more of her books asap. And thanks to Donna from Book Passion for Life, I have an ARC copy of Sarah Alderson's new book!

Are any of the books I mentioned on your Summer tbr pile too? I'd love to know which books made it to your list, so feel free to leave a link in the comments!

  2. Crown of Midnight was AMAZING, you will love it. I'm really looking forward to Tumble & Fall, too! I'm all for end of the world stories, especially when they sound like they're more subtle and personal. I hadn't heard of The Vow and The Truth About You & Me until just now but I am adding them to my goodreads ASAP. Great picks!

    P.S. Your blog is gorgeous! :)

  15. I have a Jessi Kirby book on my list, too! I was lucky enough to get Golden signed when she came last month and I've been dying to read it. No time like the present, right?! I also agree, summer is a GREAT time for road trip books. Happy reading!

  20. I used to have Tumble & Fall for review but then stupidly deleting my NG account and creating a new one but not getting accepted second time round. I can be dumb like that. O.o but I am still so eager to read it!

    I also just got Tumble & Fall today and I'm really excited for it! The reviews for that book hasn't been that great though.
    I read So Over You but had a lot of trouble getting into the book. Hope you enjoy it better!

    ReplyDelete
  28. How My Summer Went Up In Flames and The Sound seems like books I would enjoy! And I think I saw The Truth About You & Me on NetGalley but I can't be sure. And I have Sloppy Firsts but I have yet to read it. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Roadtrips FTW!!! Ha. Tumble & Fall and The Truth About You & Me are on my tbr list as well and I really need to read Throne of Glass asap. I like the US covers better though, but it doesn't take away from the hype that's surrounding this series. I hope you'll enjoy all of tehse pretties:)

  33. TUMBLE AND FALL JASPRIT!!!! So excited for that one. And also nervous that everyone is going to be dead and gone at the end, but maybe that won't be the case:) I'm excited for Crown of Midnight too simply because I think I was pretty much the only person that didn't really care for Throne of Glass, so I'm hoping this book will work better for me. Can't wait to see what you think!

    ReplyDelete
  34. The Vow looks really good! Thanks for highlighting it, it's been added to me to-read list :)

  35. Amazing books! I want to read Tumble and Fall so badly - the cover is GORGEOUS. I love Throne of Glass so Crown of Midnight is at the top of my wishlist. You've got a great summer ahead of you :) Happy reading!

  36. Ooh, Sarah Alderson has a new book?! Gotta check that out. I've read In Honor by Jessi Kirby and I quite like it. How My Summer Went Up in Flames sounds fabulous too, after reading Rachel's review I'm excited to get my hand on it. I love the cover of Tumble and Fall and its synopsis sounds very promising. Hope you enjoy all these, Jasprit. Happy reading! :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great list - quite many of these are on my TBR/Wishlist :)
    I hope you enjoy all of these. Happy Reading!

  38. Nice list! I forgot to add Amy and Roger's Epic Detour to my list, but that's another one I need to read this summer...and I actually own it already!!

    I loved Sloppy Firsts when I read it. It's a good summer book. I need to continue with the series though. I have the third novel, but not the second. haha

  40. Some good books there Jaspirit. I'm really looking forward to reading How My Summer Went Up in Flames. I couldn't get into Crown of Midnight so I hope you have better luck with it than I did. Enjoy!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Those are great choices! I still need to read In Honor, and How My Summer Went Up in Flames. I hope you're able to get all of the books read. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I totally cheated today, too. I LOVE Sloppy Firsts. That whole series is awesome. I'm excited for Tumble and Fall and the Vow. I'm dying to get my hands on the Sound, but I don't think it comes out in the US until next summer! Great list!

  43. Wow great list!! Sloppy Firsts is an awesome book! You might get Jessica Darling obsessed and have to read all 5 books this summer :) I thought about reading Over You, but Nanny Returns and Citizen Girl were terrible so I was a little scared. I'll have to see what you think of it before I decide. Tumble and Fall and The Truth About Me and You look really good too!

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT

  44. Summer is a really great time to read contemps. Even I feel the urge to read more contemps and they're definitely not my favorite genre. The Jessica Darling series is a lot of fun (at least the first two that I've read are). Tumble & Fall sounds really interesting and In Honor is the last Kirby book I have yet to read, so hopefully I'll be able to read your thoughts and determine if it's worth reading soon. Good luck with reading these, Jasprit!

    ReplyDelete
  45. great list! Sloppy Firsts is such a fun read and I LOVED it! I also enjoyed Second helpings and charmed thirds. I haven't read any of the other books, but they all look so good. I especially want to read Tumble & Fall! I hope you enjoy all of these!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I can't even express how much I adore your list. I read The Vow and it was...alright. As for the others, I REALLY want to read them as well! Tumble & Fall, The Truth About You and Me, Sloppy Firsts, In Honor, How My Summer Went Up in Flames. YES YES AND YES! You'll have a great summer :)

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  47. Tumble & Fall looks super fantastic, I'm really hoping it lives up to that gorgeous cover! Oh my gosh, you haven't read Sloppy Firsts either?! I thought I was the only one. lol Happy Reading!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Great list :D I hope you'll end up reading and loving them all. <3 I did not love Tumble & Fall, though :\ But maybe you will :D Happy reading :)
