Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, which features (you guessed it!) top ten lists on a given topic each week. This week’s topic is a freebie topic, so I’m doing Ten books on my summer TBR,
because I miss the seasonal TBRs.
1. The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore
This one wasn’t originally on my radar, but I heard such good things about it and the Morris nod was enough to convince me to pick it up. I have it out from the library right now.
2. Six Impossible Things by Fiona Wood
I really liked Wildlife by Fiona Woods, so I’m looking forward to reading the companion novel.
3. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
I HAVE read 20% of this one! But I was loving it so much, I didn’t want to finish. . . and then ended up putting it aside for two months. Oops. So far the Firefly comparison has been very apt!
4. How to Repair a Mechanical Heart by J.C. Lewis
I don’t know a whole lot about this one, but I’ve heard excellent reviews and the main characters are both in fandom, so. . . that’s enough for me.
5. The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins
This book seems a bit weird, strange, and fantastical. . . which means it’s right up my alley.
6. This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki and Jill Tamaki
I’ve been meaning to read this graphic novel for awhile, and summer seems the perfect time to do it.
7. P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
The only new release on my list — but it’s Kasie West! I CAN’T WAIT.
8. The Book of You by Claire Kendal
Every six months or so I go through a thriller phrase. That’s where I am right now, and I have an ebook copy of this book. Whenever I need a thrill, I’m going to pick it up.
9. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I give in, I give in! I wasn’t a huge fan of Shadow and Bone(like, did not even finish the series not-a-fan), but I’ve heard AMAZING things about Six of Crows. I also know that some people who felt similarly about Shadow and Bone ended up loving this one.
10. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
Thought I’d round off my list with some non-fiction. I’ve read Eat, Pray, Love, and didn’t love it. . . but I also know that it was written quite awhile ago and Gilbert has released a lot of other work since then. I’ve also been told this is a pretty decent creative advice book.
