top ten tuesday

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

The Weight of Feathers

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

Six Impossible Things

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

Long Way to a Small Angry Planet

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

How to Repair a Mechanical Heart

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

Library at Mount Char

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

This One Summer

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

ps I like you

The only new release on my list — but it’s Kasie West! I CAN’T WAIT.

8. The Book of You by Claire Kendal

book of you

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

Six of Crows

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

Big Magic

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.





The Checkout Check-In(1)

Now that I work in a library AND live in a different town with a good library, I’ve been using the library more & more. Hence, my idea for the Checkout Check-In was born. See, I tend to totally overestimate the amount of books I can actually read during the library’s loan period, which means […]

Get Your Ebooks!(10)

Hello! I love making these ebook deal wrap-ups every week(or almost every week at least), but this week it’s even better because EBOOK SETTLEMENT MONEY, RIGHT??? I got some settlement money back, and I’m astounded at the people that got $50 and up(that’s definitely not me.) So if you have some shiny new Amazon credit […]
