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 2022 to-read list. I’m normally really bad at creating TBRs and highly doubt I’ve completed any of the other seasonal ones I’ve made the past few years, haha. It’s still fun though, because there are a lot of books I hope to read this summer. There are definitely more than 10, but my list has to start somewhere, so let’s take a look!
Gild – Raven Kennedy
The Plated Prisoner series is all over the place right now. From what I’ve heard Gild isn’t the book to base this series off of. Not much happens and it can be hard to read. I’ll definitely keep that in mind when I start this series that’s a King Midas retelling.
The Do-Over – Lynn Painter
The Do-Over is a book I’ve been excited about since I saw the cover and Lynn Painter has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I love the Groundhog Day effects in books and this is one of them. Our main character relives her worst Valentine’s Day over and over again. I was really lucky to get an e-arc and even though this book doesn’t release until November I can’t wait that long to read it.
Killer Content – Olivia Blacke
I keep saying I want to read more mysteries and thrillers and figured starting with Killer Content would be a good idea. A waitresses’ death goes viral when it’s caught on a flash mob proposal video. I’m curious to see what our main character is going to do when she tries and solves this.
Carrie Soto is Back – Taylor Jenkins Reid
Taylor Jenkins Reid is an author who writes amazing books that always have an emotional punch. Carrie Soto is Back is her next book and I’m so excited that I received an e-arc. Apparently Carrie makes an appearance in Malibu Rising. While I don’t remember that vividly I can’t wait to dive in. This sounds like a perfect summer read.
Hotel Magnifique – Emily J. Taylor
I’ve been meaning to read Hotel Magnifique since it released in April. A friend of mine flew through this book and it’s only made me more excited to pick it up. A magical hotel that can travel? That sounds like something I need to read about.
Things We Never Got Over – Lucy Score
Things We Never Get Over is another book I’ve been so excited about. Lucy Score is an author talked about a lot and this seems to be one of her most popular books. I have a feeling once I start this one I won’t be able to put it down. Even though it’s almost 600 pages.
Perfect On Paper – Sophie Gonazles
Perfect On Paper has been added to a few TBRs of mine and this time I really need to sit down and read it. Especially seeing how I got the e-arc for this author’s next book. So I would like to be caught up. Isabelle loved this book, so I have high hopes.
Babel – R.F. Kuang
So I haven’t read anything by R.F. Kuang yet, but my boyfriend is a big fan of The Poppy War. When I clicked on wish for it on Netgalley I never expected my wish to be granted, so I definitely need to make time for Babel releasing in August. I believe it’s dark academia which I love.
Thank You, Next – Andie J. Christopher
Our main character seems to be the last stop before he exes find the loves of their lives. This frustrates her and makes her want to know why. So she decides to interview all of her exes to find out. I don’t think this is going to end well. We all know this story is going to go different than planned.
Thank You for Listening – Julia Whelan
I’ve mentioned Thank You for Listening a few times on the blog recently and it’s one I’m really excited about. A book that has a main character that’s an audiobook narrator is something I’ve never read. And look at this stunning cover!
