It’s Tuesday and you know what that means, linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday.
Today’s topic is about the 10 books on your summer TBR list. I’m not going to lie, 10 books over the summer sounds like a lot to me so don’t hold me to this list but these are books that I will read soon (hopefully). I also bought a whole bunch of books when I was in London last week so you know where this is going.
Code Name Verity – Elizabeth Wein
A whole bunch of people I know have read and raved about this book so when I finally found a copy at the King’s Cross station, I had to buy it and am currently reading this story.
About Face – Carole Howard
I got this as an ARC and am looking forward to starting it after Code Name Verity.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane – Neil Gaiman
This will be my first book by Neil Gaiman and needless to say I am excited to read. Apparently it also recently won Book of the Year in the British National Book awards. London was plastered with posters for this book but I actually got this one before I left, so yay me for being up to date for once.
Every Day – David Levithan
So far my only experience with David Levithan comes from Will Grayson, Will Grayson so this will be interesting since it’s not a collaboration. I like that he writes about queer characters so I’m optimistic.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chobsky
Yep, I’m finally getting to this one as well.
Under This Beautiful Dome – Terry Mutchler
I am stupidly excited about this ARC, it’s a memoir about a senator who was forced to her her lesbian relationship a secret. This brings two of my loves together, lesbians and politics. So cool.
The Casual Vacancy – J.K-. Rowling
Do I really have to explain why this book is on my TBR?! No, I thought so.
The Night Watch – Sarah Waters
I got this book at an Oxfam shop in Greenwich and am excited because it will be my first Waters. Also lesbians, like I said, this already sounds promising.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Truman Capote
I love Audrey Hepburn and the movie adaption so it’s about damn time I finally read the book.
Runaway – Alice Munroe
Nobel Prize Winner Alice Munroe has been on my TBR list forever and ever, long before I had this blog but I never managed to read one of her books. I’m trying to rectify this as soon as possible.
So, these are my ten books that I will hopefully read this summer. What’s on your summer reading list?
