10 Books On My Summer Reading List

Tuesday, May 23, 2017


I am linking up today at The Broke and the Bookish's link up "Top Ten Tuesday".  They have a different topic every week and it's a lot of fun to meet some new bloggers and find a bunch of new books to add to my list!  This week's topic is: Summer Reads Freebie.  I decided to go with: 10 Books On My Summer Reading List.

I picked 5 books that I have ARCs of that are due out this summer, and 5 books that are on my backlist just to balance things out.  Kicking my Backlist's butt is one of my goals this year so I thought if I made the list then I would HAVE to do it. lol!  Or it would help motivate me, at least! lol.

ARCs
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun

What is on your reading list this summer?

Have you read any of these?

    1. I'm super excited about Anna and the French Kiss. So many people have recommended that one to me. I actually ended up reading Song of the Current yesterday and I really enjoyed it. Adorkable sounds super cute and I've had it waiting on my Kindle for me for too long.

    1. hahaha yeah, my Backlist is way out of control. I made a goal to read 50 books from my Backlist this year but I've only managed 17 so far. I've got to get a move on with that. lol! The cover for Paintbrush is what first made me excited for that one. I'm a sucker for a great cover

  11. I loved Anna and the French Kiss but Lola was actually my favorite out of the three! And I really want to pick out Flat Out Love but, I'm not very sure about whether I'll enjoy it or not! I'm definitely keeping my eye on it and maybe, I'll give it a chance this summer! Thank you for sharing your list! Happy Reading!

    1. I plan on slowly working my way through the series, as long as I enjoy Anna. Well, I'll probably still give at least one of the others a try even if I don't lol! Everyone has always been raving about the series, so I'm really excited. I've heard good things about Flat Out Love so I can't wait to check that one out too. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  12. I am such a fan of Park and the Flat-Out books. Love them! And We Are Still Tornadoes was one of my top reads last year. Anna was cute, and Trusting You and Other Lies is on my TBR this week. I hope you enjoy them all.

  14. I have to admit that I haven't even heard of any of these books but for me as a huge thriller fan "The Lucky Ones" sounds really interesting and the Goodreads ratings seem to be quite high for this one, I'm definitely adding it to my list!

    1. I was really into thrillers for a while but I think I got burnt out on them and now I'm easing myself back into them again...if that makes any sense. lol! The Lucky Ones sounds really good so I can't wait for something a little different. Hope you love it if you get a chance to check it out

  15. The only one of these books I've read is Anna and the French Kiss, but I absolutely adored it. It's such a fast book that you'll easily be able to read it in one sitting!
    I hadn't heard of Trusting You and Other Lies or Adorkable before - they've both been added to my TBR. Great list :)

  16. I had to check out Song of the Current because I didn't know of it AND it looks cool, just from the cover. So now it's on my TBR... Yikes. Coz I needed more!

    I remember seeing We are Still Tornadoes around a bit and then wonderful reviews but for some reason that didn't make my TBR... I may have to have another look.

    Thanks as always for a great list and for helping my TBR reach dire proportions!

    1. Di! I REALLY liked Song of the Current! I hope you get to check it out because I want to hear what you think!

      I actually got an ARC of We are Still Tornadoes and then never read it....oops. So after reading all of the raving reviews for it, I feel like an idiot for putting it off. lol! I hope to change that asap!

      hahaha You are very welcome!!

  22. I'm got an ARC of The Song of the Current that I really want to read after I finish what I'm currently reading (The Assassin's Apprentice). I'm really looking forward to it!
    I also found Adorkable pretty cute. I actually reviewed it last year: http://danireviewsthings.com/2016/03/29/bookreview-adorkable-by-cookie-ogorman/
