Michelle’s Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR


Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is the popular meme created and run by The Broke and Bookish.

This week is a freebie, so I figured because I haven’t already listed out what I am excited for, I’d do it now!

  1. Days Like This by Danielle Ellison: I’m extraordinarily lucky to know Danielle and am very excited for her latest book. It comes out next month and I think the cover is gorgeous. She also had a really cool campaign going on social media to get people to focus on the good things, #dayslikethis1
  2. The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black: My lovely #OTSPSecretSister got me this book a couple of months ago and I’m very excited to dive into it this summer. I love almost all of Holly Black’s books so I have high expectations for this one.
  3. The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: I’m so late to this considering how this book to the reading community by storm, but I would like to see how I feel about it! Hopefully I get to it this summer!top10tues 2
  4. Uprooted by Naomi Novik: Despite having only read His Majesty’s Dragon, Naomi has earned a spot as one of the authors I will grab at. I’m very excited to read this as it sounds just as intriguing but very different from the Temeraire series.
  5. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab: Again, I’m apparently pretty late to the party on this one despite having followed its progress since it was an idea that Victoria was playing around with. I look forward to savoring it.
  6. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: All the coverage on this book lately! I have never read Maas before so I think perhaps this is a good one to start with. Ride the wave while it’s rising!
  7. Trapped by Kevin Hearne: Probably not anyone else’s list, but I’ve been binge reading the Iron Druid Chronicles so this is the next one I have to read. It’s happening.
  8. Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon: Like Trapped, this is the next book I have to read in the Outlander series. I need to get going with it before I forget some of the details of Voyager.
  9. White Queen by Phillipa Gregory: My #OTSPSecretSister ALSO got me this one, which I have wanted to read since watching the Starz series. It’s been a while since I read a good historical fiction.
  10. The Heir by Kiera Cass: This is my guilty pleasure series, and as much I don’t have high hopes for this book, I’m still curious enough to divulge.

What do you think?

  • Jessie says:

    Interesting choices! I’ve never read any of these, but they look really good. I’m especially intrigued by Uprooted.

    Anyways, great post!

    • Michelle Michelle says:

      I’m a little less than halfway through Uprooted now and I’m very happy with it so far. I just want to keep reading it to see how it ends up! It’s got a very different type of magic system which is very refreshing.

  • Nice list of books… I haven’t even thought about my summer TBR list!!

    • Michelle Michelle says:

      Yeah, I tend to have a good idea of the books I want to read…I’m just always a few months behind everyone else!

  • I’ve read Red Queen and The Darkest Part of the Forest and I love them both. I have ACOTAR and Days Like This in my list to read soon. I hope you love them all!

    • Michelle Michelle says:

      Glad to hear you loved them both! Right now, I’m a little less than halfway through with Uprooted…and I wish I could just sit all day and read it! I want to say that I think it’ll be one of my favorites but I’m a little worried that it might switch things up later on. We’ll see!

  • JJ says:

    I’m so excited for ACOTAR! You should check out Throne of Glass after you’re done, if you like it. There are three books so far, Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight and Heir of Fire and the fourth one will be out in September. They’re great, one of my favourite new series.

      Do you know how many books will be in the series total? I’ve been of the mind lately that series that are completed might be easier to binge on…less of a need to constantly reread the early ones to remember where it was left off.
