Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR Books

It's Tuesday again which of course means another one of The Broke and Bookish Blog's "Top Ten Tuesday"s. And today's topic is what ten books are on the top of you TBR (To Be Read) List for this summer. I have some series to finish, some new releases, and some books I have been meaning to read for awhile.


1. The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima
           I am currently reading the third book in the Seven Realms Series by Cinda Williams Chima, and really enjoying it. I can't wait to move on to the fourth and final book.

2. The One by Kiera Cass
        This is another series I plan on finishing, since I really enjoyed the first two books and practically flew through them. I am hoping that this last book really delivers.

3. Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
         I have literally heard nothing but great things about this novel, and I can't wait to get my hands on it and see for myself! It also sounds like the ideal summer read.

4. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord
          Another book that sounds like the perfect summer read. I want to get my hands on this book so badly! It seems amazing and I've heard a lot of good reviews.

5. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Okay, so how I haven't read this before is beyond me. It seems like just the type of book I would love, and I'm hoping it goes above and beyond my expectations!
6. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
I have heard a lot about this book, and although I am not 100% sure that it is my cup of tea, I am going to try it anyway because quite frankly, anything that Rainbow writes, I will read!
7. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
This is the big series right now with the last book just being released and I cannot believe I haven't read it yet. I can't be alone in not getting to this one yet, right? Right?!

 8. Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon
First off, I know the not-judging-a-book-by-it's-cover rule, but just look at that! It's so beautiful! And it's by a debut teen author, so I'd like to read the book to give it a shot. The summary really appeals to me as well.

9. Entwined by Heather Dixon
Mostly because it's a fairytale retelling and I love those, plus I've heard good things about this book and I want to read it. Short and sweet explanation here, I guess.
   10. Elusion by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam
Okay, so maybe I haven't heard the best things about this book. But does that make me want to read it any less? No. I still really want to read this book and I have for a long time. Yes, partly because of the cover, but mostly because I like the sound of the summary and think it would be an entertaining read.
So that is it for now! Have you read any of these books, or want to read them? What is your list?


  1. I really want to read the Throne of Glass books -- I keep hearing so much about them now that the 3rd book is coming out! And Since You've Been Gone seems to be getting rave review everywhere I turn. Enjoy your reading this summer :)

    1. Yes, me too! And it seems like Throne of Glass is just my type of book as well. Thanks, I hope you enjoy your reading as well!
