Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I’ve talked about why I don’t typically set a TBR list. So I like to think of this as a wish list of books I’d like to read in the Summer. I only ticked off two books on my Spring TBR, so I’ve not mentioned the books on that list as they’ve already been carried over to this list. Here are the books I hope to read this Summer.


1. To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo: Is it cheating if I say I’m already reading this book? It takes forever for me to read books these days, so I like the fact that I’ve found the motivation to read this one and so far I’m loving it.

2. The Queen and the Cure by Amy Harmon: I took this book with me to Canada with the hopes that I’d do some bedtime reading. That did not happen at all. I read a total of 1 book in the month I was there. So, I’d like to read this book sometime in the Summer.

3. Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman: How can I not be excited for this book. The only reason I’ve not read this book yet is because I’ve not been home to read it. I’m still terrified of the possibility that not everyone makes it, but all I can say is bring it on.

4. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: I’ve been in the mood for fantasy lately, and this book took the book community by storm when it came out. I’ve never read a book on fae’s so I’m excited to explore the mythology of those creatures.

5. Speakeasy by Sarina Bowen: I love that we’re getting another book in the True North series. I still need to read Bountiful, but at least I can fit in a binge reading session of both books.

6. Save the Date by Morgan Matson: Summertime is the perfect time to read Morgan Matson’s new book. She is the queen of summer contemporary novels. I feel like I’ve been waiting an age for a new book and I am so excited to get my hands on Save the Date

7. Emergency Contact by Mary H. K. Choi: I’ve heard a lot of great things about this book. It sounds like a fun cute contemporary and I love the fact that the characters are at university. I’ve been itching to read more books that are set at university but don’t solely focus on the romance. 

8. I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios: I’ve been wanting to re-read this book for a while now, but between all the other books I’ve yet to read and not being in the mood to read I just never got round to it. However, I miss Josh and Skylar, and I think re-reading this book will be a good way to snap this funk I seem to be in. 

What’s on your Summer TBR list?
Which books should I add to my tbr list?

  1. I am all here for you reading To Kill a Kingdom and Obsidio. Marie and I want to read Save the Date (although I am waiting for the paperback to come out), so yay for that one as well and I have heard nothing but good things about the beauty that is Emergency Contact. This looks like an amazing TBR!

    1. I’m still on my book buying ban so the only time I’ve given myself a freebie to buy books is on special occasions aka birthdays so I’ll have to wait a bit before getting Save the Date as well, but you never know I might accidentally treat myself to it. 😛

  2. I LOVE your TBR so much – and as you already know, I am so very happy you are reading To Kill a Kingdom and enjoying it, I loved that book so, so much. And YAY for Emergency Contact, it is SUCH a great book, I hope you’ll love it 🙂
    I also can’t WAIT to read Morgan Matson’s new book, it sounds amazing – as all of her books are 😀

    1. I am flying through To Kill a Kingdom. It is so much fun and the characterisation is on point. I love how seeing Lira coming into her own and breaking away from her mother’s clutches.


  3. I always find that my summer reading list is super diverse and I am super excited to add some of these recs to my pile. Fantasy is one of my favorite genres and the Cruel Prince sounds sooo good! I wanted to recommend a fantastic book I finished recently by author Ted Neill called: Jamhuri, Njambi, & Fighting Zombies. This book really does have it all combining magical realism, science fiction, folklore and lots of action! The book follows 5 interweaving character stories that all involve a recent zombie outbreak. However, unlike your typical “zombie outbreak” plot this outbreak is magic in nature and causes the souls of people to depart from their bodies and become trapped in Limbo. It is an extremely unique read that had me hooked from start to finish. You can learn more about the plot on his website:
    If you do read it I would love to know what you think!
