Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List

The Broke and the Bookish are taking a break until August 15th for TTT until August 15th so I thought I would take this time to do some of their old prompts that I missed out on.

Summer is my favorite time of year because no school and little or no work so naturally  I get a lot of reading done. My literature class this summer is taking up all my reading time which is not a bad thing but I am definitely not working on my TBR pile like I normally would. I also haven’t been traveling so no car or airplane time to binge read during.

So here are the top ten books on my summer TBR list that will more than likely remain on my TBR into the fall.

  1. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
    20170611_120521
    I absolutely adored Between Shades of Grey by Sepetys so I will no doubt love this book. And that cover is just so pretty.
  2. This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

    Cait at PaperFury just raves about all Victoria Schwab books and this one really intrigues me because I played the violin for 9 years. Also how gorgeous is this cover??
  3. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
    DSC_0060.JPG
    Okay, I admit. This was a total and complete cover buy. (I HAVE NO SELF CONTROL)
  4. Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
    20170409_160551This is a book about two worlds colliding, friendship, magic, and the word ‘blades’ is mentioned more than once in the blurb. What book isn’t good where ‘blades’ is a word in the blurb? (YAS WOMEN WIELDING BLADES)
  5. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
    20170507_141606I almost always tackle a classic or two during the summer. This is one of those books I am deeply ashamed I have not read yet.
  6. Cinder by Melissa Meyer
    20170528_135532
    I have had so many recommendations for this book and have not picked it up yet. I want to read it so bad. CURSE YOU MASTER’S CLASSES

  7. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
    20170528_133137
    This duo has also come highly recommended to me and seems right up my alley with the crime and outcasts. Also, my reps are begging me for Six of Crows bookmarks so I need to get on that.
  8. The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan
    20170528_134057
    I absolutely loved the first book in the series. It was a laugh out loud kind of funny. I did get this around the time it came out but have yet to read it…
  9. My Lady Jane by Multiple Authors
    20170528_141052
    My Lady Jane was recommended by one of my other favorite bloggers, Miss Leslie Ann. I originally followed her because of her classroom blog and discovered how much I adored her as a human being and I follow her lifestyle blog and instagram as well.
  10. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
    20170528_133137Actually this whole picture is pretty much in my TBR pile. However, I love these tortured love stories and “not all is as it seems” plots.
