Top Ten Tuesday (15): Books at the Top of My Summer TBR List


Hallo again, bookish lovelies! As I was trying to figure out what to share this week, I thought I'd get inspiration from my bookshelves. It has come to my attention that I might have gone a smidge overboard with buying books recently... ahem. As a result of my book frenzy, I've decided this summer that I'm going to read as many books from my own shelves as I can.

So which books are calling to me most? It looks like a lot of contemporary. But, I have been wanting to read more in that genre. Next up are a couple middle-grade books I've been wanting to read. The last two are books I've been told to read by friends. One is an angel book that my friend Amy swears I'll love regardless of my opinion on angel books. The other one is about mermaids, which my friend Jen loves and hopes that I'll fall in love with too. I don't know that I'm really a fan of either, but we shall see!

So without further ado, here are ten of the books I hope to read this summer:

The Contemporaries


1. Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
2. Take Me There by Susane Colasanti
3. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
4. The DUFF by Kody Keplinger
5. The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen
6. Golden by Jessi Kirby

The Middle-Grade Lovelies


7. Loki's Wolves by K. L. Armstrong and M. A. Marr
8. Wonder by R. J. Palacio

The I'm-Not-Sure-It's-My-Thing-But-I'll-Try-It Friend Recs 


9. Fallen by Lauren Kate
10. Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

What do you guys think of these picks? Are there any contemporary novels that I should try first? How about some awesome middle-grade picks I can enjoy? What's your opinion on mermaids and angels? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

  3. Great picks!! I want to read Golden too this summer. The reviews are great and I love the cover, so I'm pretty sure it'll be awesome.
    I liked Fallen, but it isn't the best book ever. I hope you'll enjoy it :)

    1. Thanks! Golden IS a gorgeous book and I hope I can read it before too long. I also hope I enjoy Fallen, if for nothing else than to make my friend happy. :)

      Thanks!!

  4. I've been hearing a lot of good things about Golden. I hope you like it! I really enjoyed Of Poseidon. Fallen... not so much. But, I read it because of a friend reco too (and ended up reading the whole series anyway).

    1. Haha! Sometimes that happens! There was one series (I won't name names) where I couldn't stand the first book, but I still read the second and part of the third. I have no idea why, but whatever. Thanks!

  6. Of Poseidon is on my summer TBR list, too! Can't wait to read it. Same with Amy & Roger, though it's not on my TTT (that one made my list last week, lol). Happy summer reading!

    1. Mermaids seem very summer-appropriate, don't you think? I hope we both love it!

  9. I loved Golden. I definitely suggest picking that one up first. I have both Twenty Boy Summer and Amy and Roger checked out from the library, but haven't gotten to them yet. Great list!

    1. Yay! I have a book to start with! Thanks! :) Sometimes I wish I read faster so I get through these books sooner, but I do so love getting wrapped up in them. Thanks for the comment!

  10. I really enjoyed The DUFF; it's been a long time since I last read it. Of Poseidon is really good, and actually quite funny. Happy reading!
