We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is Books On My Summer 2019 TBR. As you all might know, I don’t really set TBR’s for myself. However, I do have a bunch of books I plan on reading asap, or at least this summer. So today I’ll show 10 of the books I plan on reading this summer. Let’s get into it!
Bloodwitch – Susan Dennard
I’m ashamed to say I still haven’t read this one! The Witchlands series is a wonderful fantasy series and I was so excited to continue. I’m sure I will love Bloodwitch once I finally pick it up haha. The reviews have been quite positive so I’m very confident!
Legendary & Finale – Stephanie Garber
After being a bit disappointed by Caraval I couldn’t get myself to pick up Legendary. But since these UK editions are so gorgeous I did buy the sequels as soon as they were released. And I have been hearing good things about both books. Almost everyone seems to like Legendary better than Caraval so hopefully I will feel the same! And then I can continue with Finale right away.
Heartstopper vol 2 – Alice Oseman
I hardly ever preorder books. But I made an exception for Heartstopper vol. 2. I adored the first volume of this Graphic Novel and was super excited for the sequel right away. There is a webcomic going on for these books but I much rather get the physical books. I also like supporting this author, since I love her work so much. Can’t wait to read more about these two cute boys!
Voyager – Diana Gabaldon
I have spend about two months reading Outlander, and the same goes for the sequel. However, when I was reading Dragonfly in Amber I realized they had the whole series on Storytel. And I think this summer will be a great moment to pick the series back up. Hopefully with the audiobook I can get through this one relatively quickly. And I might pick up more volumes after this one.
Vengeful – V.E. Schwab
I got a subbox for this wonderful book. And I did read a part of it right away. But then I got my hands on one of my most anticipated releases so I decided to put Vengeful down for a little bit. And while I loved those first couple of chapters, I just didn’t pick up the book again. We get a new character in Vengeful and from what I saw of her, I already LOVE her! Can’t wait to read more.
Nevernight – Jay Kristoff
I have heard so many great things about this series! But I’ve also heard some negative things. So I decided to just try it out for myself. Candyce and I are doing a buddyread for Nevernight. And if we love it we’ll also read Godsgrave (and possibly Darkdawn). But since I’m not completely sure about the series yet, I figured I would hold off on getting the rest of the series.
The Poppy War – R.F. Kuang
This book has been on the top of my wishlist for awhile and I was so happy to get it! But its been a while since and I have still to read. I did start the audiobook but quickly realized that wasn’t the way to go for this book. So I do plan on reading the physical copy this summer. I also just want to say I adore this cover. This is exactly what I want in a book!
Quests for Glory – Soman Chainani
The original trilogy in this wonderful MG series is one of my favorites ever. So when they started a new trilogy in this series I was super happy! And I got this one pretty soon after it was released. Unfortunately I haven’t gotten the time to pick it up yet. I’m sure I will love this one so much but it is a pretty big one!
Escaping From Houdini – Kerri Maniscalco
Once again, I was pretty disappointed in the first book in this series. But after a while the title for book 3, Escaping From Houdini, was shared. And you have to admit, it’s an amazing title! So I had to read the second book so I could get to this one. Hunting Prince Dracula (book 2) was better than I was expecting so I hope Escaping from Houdini will be great.
Death Note: Black Edition vol. 1 – Tsugumi Ohba
I think this is the manga I have owned for the longest. But somehow I never picked it up to actually read it. I have heard so many people talk about Death Note, either the manga or the anime and they all seem to love it. The story sounds super interesting so I hope I will enjoy it as much as most people do!
These are 10 (or actually 11) of the books I plan on reading this summer. Have you read any of these? And what do you plan on reading this summer? Let me know in the comments!
