10 Books on My Summer Reading List

Whelp, I’m jumping back on the Top Ten Tuesday wagon. I’ve been a bit busy recently but I’m finally catching up on my reading. This year got off to a bumpy start so I’m looking forward to making it the best it can be! My main goal this year is to catch up on my review books and to shrink my book shelves. I know, that’s blasphemy but now that we have a tiny apartment I need the space for other things. On of my main goals is to finish my summer reading list.  I’m sure I’ll have other books mixed in but I really want to get these books read!

10 books I want to read this summer!

Arrowood by Mick Finlay – I received an ARC of this book recently and it really caught my eye. On the cover, it says ‘London Society Takes it’s Problems to Sherlock Holmes. Everyone Else Goes to Arrowood’. As a sherlock fan, I’m sold. It comes out July 18th so keep an eye out!

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan – I have had this book on my shelf forever and it’s time I finally read it. I love john green and I’ve heard great things about David Levithan. I really like the idea behind the book as well.

Anthem by Ayn Rand – Classics are a must for any reading list. I’m looking forward to knocking another book off my TBR this summer! Plus, it’s Ayn Rand!

It’s Okay to Laugh by Nora McInerny Purmort – I got this book last year as an arc and I have still not read it. (Cue my shame bells) It looks great and I’ve been on a memoir kick lately.

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover – I needed a break from Hoover after ‘It Ends with Us’. That book destroyed me in many ways. I’m hoping to finally read ‘Hopeless’ and maybe even watch the show about her book confess!

Summer Of Supernovas by Darcy Woods – Yet another arc I never read. I swear I’m going to get through them this year! Probably not, but I hope I am able to put a dent in them.  Plus the book says ‘Summer!’ It had to go on my summer reading list!

The End of All Things Beautiful by Nikki Young – I bought a copy of this from a book event I went to and got it signed but never read it. The cover is freaking beautiful too. I’m sure it’ll be a great read.

Fortunately, The milk by Neil Gaiman – Are you shocked it took you this long to hit a Gaiman book? Well don’t be…I’m running out of his works and I’m now finishing off his children books. The man can write!

Lock In by John Scalzi – You can’t go wrong with Scalzi. My sister bought my husband this book a few Christmases ago and I snatched it off his shelf. I’m pretty excited about this one.

The Girl from the Paradise Ballroom by Alison Love – Yes it’s an Arc, yes I have had it for over a year, and yes I am very very sorry. The book looks great but I haven’t started it yet. The cover is just beautiful too.

Have you read any of these books? What do you have on your summer reading list?

I’m a geek blogger, mom, a wife, and a reader. My family and I are currently living in the beautiful state of Colorado. I started my blog after I landed myself in the hospital for multiple pulmonary embolisms. It took over a year to diagnose me with lupus among other things. It’s been a long journey but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I read all genres and I write about anything I feel like; From my issues with Lupus/RA/pulmonary embolisms to what is going on in the book world. Every day is a new adventure!

  1. I haven’t heard of any of these! I’ve read ONE Neil Gaiman book (The Graveyard Book) and was mind blown at the end. Plus I love the movie Stardust, so someday I hope to manage to read more from him.

    As far as summer reading….. I have a TON of NetGalley books to get through, so that plus my backlist of Goodreads wins are probably taking priority.

    • yes, I need to get on those too. After months of catching up, I only have 1 book left to read for netgalley. I’m just not in love with it yet.
