Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday was created and is hosted by The Broke And The Bookish. This week's topic is books on my summer TBR list! Some are summer releases, some are fall releases and some are just books that have been out FOREVER that I haven't gotten around to reading yet!

In no particular order:

1. Never Fade (The Darkest Minds #2) by Alexandra Bracken - I'm a little devastated that I've yet to read this. HELLO! Biggest Bracken and Darkest Minds fangirl EVAR here. I don't actually have a copy yet (*sobs*) but I'm pretty sure I'll be getting my hands on one soon and I will DEVOUR it when I finally do!
2. Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas - LOVED Throne of Glass and totally did a happy dance in a movie theater when my awesome blogger friend Shanyn sent me a picture that she picked this up at BEA for me! Ready to get my Chaol on!
3. This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith - Just checked this baby out at the library yesterday. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was amazing so I'm looking forward to finally reading this one!


4. The Elite (The Selection #2) by Kiera Cass - I just finished reading The Selection last night and HOLY MEATBALLS IT WAS SO GOOD. I'm so happy that Shanyn (she's sounding a bit like my own personal book fairy, huh?) sent me this one along with the first book because I need more Prince Maxon ASAP.
5. Defiance by C.J. Redwine - My book fairy also sent me this one and it looks SO good! I haven't heard too much about it but what I have heard has been nothing but praise. Excited to start it soon!
6. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell - I don't actually have this in my possession but it's on hold at the library for me. Ever since BEA started I've heard nonstop gushing about Rainbow Rowell so I'm dying to get my hands on one of her books!


7. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead - Also on hold at the library for me. I'm ready to climb out from this boulder I've been living under and see what all of the hype is about!
8. Eon by Alison Goodman - I bought this book months ago and still haven't picked it up yet but I definitely plan on getting around to it this summer. Fantasy = win!
9. Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles - I always love a good contemp on a nice, sunny day so hopefully this one will be just as good as her others! (Perfect Chemistry ... *dreamy sigh*)
10. This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales - This is one is at the very top of my pile! I plan on cracking it open the moment that I finish up with library books because it sounds SO good! Books about music are always a hit (no .. errr.. almost pun intended) with me!

Are any of these books on your summer TBR list? If not, what are some you planning on reading?

  1. This is What Happy is a great summer book. I still need to read both The Darkest Minds and Throne of Glass, although both are on my TBR. I'm also excited for This Song Will Save and Wild Cards. Great list!

  4. Oh Vampire Academy is a must! That's one of my top favorite series EVER! Of course the series gets better with each book so don't give up if you don't just LOVE book 1. I think every other one on your list is on my TBR list!

    1. Thanks for the tip! I plan on getting at least three of the books at one time so I'll be motivated to keep going even if I'm not feeling it. But with as much love as these books get, I don't think that'll be problem. ;)

    1. I'm excited to actually read them! I feel like the only person left in the YA blogosphere (or the world, really) who hasn't read them!

  8. I can't wait for Never Fade. I had to pre-order it from Amazon. The Darkest Minds was so amazing! (I'm about as fangirly as you over Alexandra Bracken!)

  9. Planning to read Crown of Midnight and The Elite, absolutely can't wait! I got Eleanor and Park for my birthday and I loved that as well, well written, formatted and beautiful plot line. Wasn't as impressed by Vampire Academy, but then again I pretty much dislike all paranormal romance so...yeah...Wasn't a fan of Eon, it was okay. Have you read Dragon Rider by Carole Wilkinson? That's really good. So is Eragon if you haven't read it. I want to read Invisibility by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan. I think you'll like it.
    Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth.
