Happy Tuesday! We’re really getting into Summer here, so this is the perfect TTT Topic! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl) is Summer TBR. I’m going to a beach town for the month next week, so this is a good time to really think about which books I want to pack with me. I also just went book shopping, so this list is definitely influenced by that haul.
THE DAUGHTER OF DOCTOR MOREAU BY SILVIA MORENO-GARCIA
This is the next book I need to start out of my NetGalley arcs. I loved Mexican Gothic by Moreno-Garcia, so I’m so excited to dig into this one, too.
FRESH WATER FOR FLOWERS BY VALÉRIE PERRIN
This is one I found at a local bookseller and had never heard of before. It just sounds like the perfect summer read, though!
LAST NIGHT AT THE TELEGRAPH CLUB BY MALINDA LO
I don’t need to talk about this one more than I already have, but yes, this one is going to be read by me soon!!!
DETRANSITION BABY BY TORREY PETERS
I haven’t seen much about this book, but I picked it up at the bookstore today. I’m hoping it will be just some good old queer greatness my summer needs.
TRANSCENDENT KINGDOM BY YAA GYASI
This is another I picked up at the local bookseller while I was on vacation a few weeks ago. I have Gyasi’s Homegoing but never got to it–this story is a bit more interesting to me, though.
THE WOMEN OF CHATEAU LAFAYETTE BY STEPHANIE DRAY
I’m usually wary to pick up historical war fiction, but this story caught my attention since it centers around female MCs. I saw it at the bookstore a bit ago and decided to pick it up, so here it is on the list!
SCORPICA BY G.R. MACALLISTER
Again, let’s pretend like this one isn’t still on the list and move on, ok?
THE BONE SHARD DAUGHTER BY ANDREA STEWART
Ok, I had never heard of this one before today. I saw it at Barnes and Noble and had to have it. It sounds so effing good. Has anyone read this?? Please tell me what you thought.
THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY SERIES BY JENNY HAN
I just finished the Prime series last night and would love to go back and reread this series while on vacation this summer. I don’t think it will be as good as the TV series (seeing as they updated quite a bit for a 2022 outlook), but I want to absorb all the nostalgic beachy vibes from this one.
LOVE ON THE BRAIN BY ALI HAZELWOOD
This list could only end with this one which I have been very patiently waiting for. I am going to devour this book the second it comes out at midnight on August 23rd. The perfect way to end a summer.
What’s your most anticipated book on your Summer TBR? Do we have any in common?
