Top Ten Tuesday
This weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and Bookish—check out their wonderful blog if you haven’t yet.
What are the top ten books I’ll have in my beach bag this summer? Many are new releases, some are titles I’ve had for awhile, but all are ones I hope to read while enjoying the warm summer months! In a few weeks I’ll be traveling with one of my best friends to the coast for two weeks so plan to pack some of these books and take them with me. The rest will be read throughout the summer months.
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield
I’m intrigued by the idea of a book within a book, and can’t wait for this one to be released!
The Glass Sentence (The Mapmakers Trilogy #1) by S.E. Grove
Maps? Boston, 1891? Explorations?!? I’m very excited about the release of this one!
The Half Life of Molly Pierce by Katrina Leno
This looks to be another intriguing summer read–a “psychological mystery” that’s out on July 8th.
Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell
I’ve been wanting to read this for awhile, and it’s won several awards–very excited about this one!
Astonish Me by Maggie Shipstead
Any book with ballet in it is sure to interest me.
Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxes
I’ve had this book for awhile, and I think it’s a wonderful choice to work on throughout the summer because it’s pretty hefty.
The Castle Behind Thorns by Merrie Haskell
Because I loved The Princess Curse (recommended by Emily at Oh Magic Hour) and I must read her newest!
The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Here’s how I felt when I discovered a new Jodi Lynn Anderson book was coming out:
Need I say more?!?
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Love the premise of this one!
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
I’ve read so many raving reviews of this one by Morgan Matson, so I’m going to add it to the beach bag!
I’m planning to read all ten of these this summer, and perhaps more! Even with a busy online teaching load, I can do it. To my own fears that I can’t get through the books I want to read:
Are any of these titles in your beach bag? What other books should I take along with me this summer?
