10 Books On My Summer Reading List

Summer is here! It means evening walks, sweet corn, sun tea and bare feet -- not to mention reading in my amazingly comfy hammock!

Today for Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, we get to talk about our summer reading plans! I did really well with my spring to-read list; I read all 10 books (two of which will definitely be on my best-books-of-the-year list) as well the three books I didn't get to from my winter list, and I'm really proud of myself!

It's been a while since I've read a good mystery or historical fiction novel -- or for that matter any really superb up-all-night page-turner -- so I've got both those genres on my list. I'm also planning to read a graphic novel (my first true one!), a YA title and a non-fiction book this summer.

I've got plenty of new summer releases on my radar too. You can see those in last week's Top Ten Tuesday post about the new books I'm most looking forward to for the rest of the year. Almost all of them come out this summer! (A couple of the must-read-ASAP books from that list are "Wicked Charms" by Janet Evanovich and "Armada" by Ernest Cline.)

Do tell: Have you read any of the books on my to-read list? What books are are on your radar this summer?

I won (I won something!!!) this book from Goodreads last month and I'm hoping to get it read this summer, too. The cover (a beautiful rainbow eucalyptus tree) just evokes a summery feeling, so it should fit right in!


  1. I read The Last Bookaneer, I liked it. I want to read more by Matthew Pearl. Mr. Mercedes is another one in my bookshelf, just waiting for me to pick it up. I have got to quit requesting free books and picking up random books at the library so I can read the ones that I've purchased! LOL.

  2. I LOVE SAGA IT'S SO GOOD! Also, really enjoyed Mr. Mercedes! I am excited to listen to the sequel this summer! :)
    Thanks for stoppin' by! Have a great week!

  3. Looking forward to reading "The little Paris Bookshop".


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
