Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's prompt is:

Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List

I am really excited about some of the books in my summer TBR pile.  Here's my most anticipated reads.  If you've read any of them, let me know!  I need to know who to gush to when I finish these.  :)

10. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saienz
Because that is one awesome book title.

9. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Because of all the raving reviews.

8. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Because it's the only currently released Rowell novel I haven't yet read.

7. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Because I love fairytale adaptations!

6. Tsarina by J. Nelle Patrick
Because that cover is just so pretty.

5. Timebound by Rysa Walker
Because my hold at the library FINALLY came through!

4. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
Because I NEED MORE DARKLING IN MY LIFE.

3. Landline by Rainbow Rowell
Because Rainbow is my homegirl, and I can't wait to read her newest novel!

2. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
Because her last book practically made my hyperventilate, it was that good.

1. The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith, AKA J.K. Rowling
Because DUH.


What are you reading this summer?

  1. I'm reading "All God's Critters Got a Place in the Choir," ironically. Started it about a week and a half ago. Timely... or something.

    1. Hahaha I can't decide if that's ironic or just plain sad. Either way, it's definitely timely.

  2. Is Saienz's book cover also done by Sarah J. Coleman? Because wow... that's quite the resemblance... I just bought Eleanor and Park but I'll need to look into these others!

    1. For real! I don't know who's responsible for that cover art, but it sure looks like Sarah J. Coleman!
      PS, Eleanor & Park is sitting on my nightstand even as we speak...

  3. Yes to Ari & Dante!!! I hope you love it, Melissa. :) Pssst... you know where to find me!

    Eleanor & Park is so great! Perfect balance between sad and sweet. Ah! Rowell is fantastic! I look forward to Landline, as well. We should talk about these, once your done. Enjoy!

    Also, as who the illustrator of Ari & Dante is: http://www.inkymole.com/post/61034714259

    Yeah, it's the person you suspected! I was curious to find out too. :P

    1. Marlene, you're the best!!! Thanks so much for doing the research on who the cover artist is. I'm so looking forward to Ari & Dante, and of course to both Rowell books! I'll for sure let you know when I finish them. I'm always down for a good gush-fest. :)

  5. Heir of Fire and Ruin and Rising also made my top ten! They both look amazing. :) Eleanor & Park was one of my favorites from last year. It's the only Rainbow Rowell book I've read, but it has made me want to read everything else by her. I've been hearing so many great things about We Were Liars, so I'm pretty curious about that one. I hope you have an awesome time reading this summer!

    1. I'm partway through Timebound now, and the inside is as great as the outside! I'd definitely recommend it! If you do read Ari & Dante then let me know! I'd love to have someone to talk to about it afterwards. :)

  7. The Tsarina cover is absolutely awesome! Hope the story inside is just as good :D Also, yay for fairytale retelling love! I've seen some mixed things about Cruel Beauty so I'm wondering what I'll make of it whenever I read it. Hope you enjoy!
