Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we can all share lists.
Well, I am not fond of summer at all because I sweat a lot during the summer and it gets uncomfortable and sticky and…gah. Therefore, I’ll be sequestering myself in a shady part of my room and devouring these books.
1. Magonia-Maria Dahvana Headley
Look at that gorgeous cover. Ugh. So glorious…oh right, the plot. The premise sounds very interesting. It’s described as Neil Gaiman mixed with John Green but unlike the rest of the world, I did not bawl my eyes out at The Fault in Our Stars. I’ll still give this book a go though.
2. Everything, Everything-Nicola Yoon
Again, a beauty pageant-worthy book cover. And what? A girl allergic to the world? This book is absolutely speaking to me.
3. Fangirl-Rainbow Rowell
I’ll admit that for some reason, I wasn’t enraptured with Eleanor and Park. I KNOW. What’s wrong with this girl? But I heard great things about this book and I think I can totally relate.
4. A Darker Shade of Magic-V.E. Schwab
WHERE IS MY BOOK FROM THE LIBRARY? I put it on reserve ages ago and still, the magical phone-call from the library elves has not arrived. I’m probably going to be the last one to read it and by then, I’ll probably be so frustrated that I’ll ruin the book with spoilers. It better come this summer. Or else.
5. The Wrath & the Dawn-Renée Ahdieh
I heard there were fantastic food descriptions. And something about a retelling of The Arabian Nights? And a slowwwww burning romance?
6. The Dream Thieves-Maggie Stiefvater
Ok, I did borrow this months ago but I got through pretty much the entire book, save for the last 50 pages, before exams came in and ruined everything. Being the good citizen that I am, I had to return it. BUT SCHOOL WILL NOT FOIL MY PLANS OF READING IT THIS SUMMER.
7. Tiny Pretty Things-Sona Charaipotra and Dhionielle Clayton
Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars? This, I have to read.
8. P.S. I Still Love You-Jenny Han
MORE PETER KAVINSKY. MORE SWOON-WORTHY CUTENESS. MORE FAMILY. And throw in some mocha sugar doughnuts (donuts? doughnuts? which one is it?)
9. A Court of Thorns and Roses-Sarah J. Maas
I don’t know what to say about this one. I haven’t finished SJM’s A Throne of Glass series and I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews about this book, especially concerning the romance…I’d still like to read it though.
10. Extraordinary Means-Robyn Schneider
Why do I want to read a book that will probably make me cry? Or if it doesn’t, prove to me that I really am a heartless creature?
Sadly, I just realized that most of these books are on reserve which means I may not be able to read it in the summer. ‘Tis the life of a book blogger who relies solely on libraries to read.
But enough about me. What books are on your TTT?
