Top Ten Books on my Summer TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten Books On My
Summer To-Be-Read List
Summer means the beach, sunshine, some swoony romance, and a lot of contemporaries for me! Don't get me wrong, I love my Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Dystopians, and those definitely have their own swoon-worthy moments (Aria + Peregrine, anyone?) - but something about summer equals contemporary. I tossed in 3 non-contemps just to mix it up (goin' crazy, I know!) a bit.

I also chose books that I actually own and have in my current possession and reach. While I'm excited for books that are coming out soon or ones I want to get my hands on, my TBR stack is freakin' out of control.

The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long

7 Clues To Winning You by Kristin Walker

Being Friends With Boys by Tera Elan McVoy

Take A Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg

The List by Siobhan Vivian

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne

Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill
Flirting in Italian by Lauren Henderson
A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger

PS. Were you paying attention? I know it's not 10, but I couldn't help it!

    So many awesome looking books you have here - though I haven't read any of them! Hope you enjoye your reading - and I agree, I have a huge existing pile of books I own too!

    My TTT this week

    1. Ashley @ Ashley Loves BooksJune 19, 2012 at 1:56 AM

      How is it possible unread books we own just stack higher and higher?! Goodness if only there were more hours in a day haha. Thank you for stopping by!

  • The Reading DateJune 19, 2012 at 12:37 AM

    You are in for a great summer of reading! We have Flirting in Italian and Second Chance Summer in common. And Shadow and Bone sounds fantastic too.

    1. Ashley @ Ashley Loves BooksJune 19, 2012 at 1:56 AM

      I'm excited to get started on all of these! I've heard some mixed things about Flirting in Italian which makes me nervous, and Second Chance Summer is probably going to break me if all the reviews are right...but still can't wait to read them and find out myself!

      Thank you for stopping by :)

    2. Tanya PatriceJune 19, 2012 at 3:06 AM

      Ooh so many books on this list that I want to read also - like Shadow and Bone! Hope you get to all these books and enjoy them all :-)

    3. Ashley @ Ashley Loves BooksJune 19, 2012 at 3:15 AM

      Shadow and Bone is definitely creeping up to the top of the list, I just can't stand not knowing after all the great things I'm hearing! Thanks for stopping by, Tanya :)

  • AmandaJune 19, 2012 at 4:31 AM

    Such a great list! Meant to Be should've been on my list too...and I can't wait to read My Life Next Door. So many good books coming out this summer!

  • UnknownJune 19, 2012 at 4:44 AM

    OMG I heard amazing things about Shadow and Bone I really need to buy a copy ! I haven't read any of these books but I hope you'll enjoy reading them :).

  • UnknownJune 19, 2012 at 4:52 AM

    Yay shadow and bone! I live swoony romance! I am going to be checking some of these out on GR!

    Thanks for stopping by my page! I am so glad that you enjoyed Cinder. Good things can only come !

  • Kimberly @ Midnight Book GirlJune 19, 2012 at 6:01 AM

    So many great books on your list! I could easily read your list instead of mine. Monument 14 and My Life Next Door are on my list too. So many books... so little time.

  • DaisyJune 19, 2012 at 6:27 AM

    Shadow and Bone is SO unbelievably good! :D I absolutely loved it! And Unbreak My Heart is such a sweet summer romance, you'll love it! :) I just finished Flirting in Italian and let me warn you: it's not a standalone. Also, I got all ranty about the ending which left me going WTF???
    I basically want to read all of the other books on your list :)

  • The Housework Can WaitJune 19, 2012 at 6:37 AM

    I'm also really excited to read Monument 14 and Shadow and Bone (which seems to be on EVERYONE's list)! Great list!

    Thanks for stopping by my Summer TBR list!

  • Lindsey (A Storm of Words)June 19, 2012 at 7:05 AM

    Summer to me definitely means swoony romances and contemporaries as well and hopefully I'll be able to fit a bunch of them onto my list on top of all the sci/fantasy/paranormal. Speaking of, I totally forgot to add Meant to Be on my list. Definitely can't wait to read that in the summer, too! Great list! :)

  • Anne@HeadFullofBooksJune 19, 2012 at 7:08 AM

    Even though I have a laughably long list, I'd better go back and add Second Chance Summer to My List. I loved Amy and Roger's Epic Detour. I'll be so disappointed if this one isn't equally charming. I also recently read a review of Shadow and Bone and will be looking for it, too.

  • Britta KirkJune 19, 2012 at 7:33 AM

    Great, great list!!! I've heard so much about My Life Next Door, Unbreak My Heart, and Shadow & Bone that I know I'll have to read them this summer as well. Can't wait to hear what you think of them!

    <3 Britta

  • FarahJune 19, 2012 at 7:49 AM

    Eeepppp!!! I wanna read ALLL OF THE BOOKS THAT'S ON YOUR LIST! I can't believe I haven't read all of those either. Awesome list!:D

    My Top 10

  • AnonymousJune 19, 2012 at 8:10 AM

    I am currently reading My Life Next Door. So far so good:) I however have been really wanting to read Flirting in Italian and A MidSummer's Nightmare:) Good Luck!

  • Angela @ Reading AngelsJune 19, 2012 at 8:30 AM

    I MUST get a copy of My Life Next Door soon!! MUST! LOL

    Midsummers Nightmare was really good :D

    Great list!

  • Hannah LorraineJune 19, 2012 at 9:37 AM

    I love your list <3 Being Friends With Boys, Take a Bow & Shadow and Bone are amazing! I should have added Second Chance Summer to my list because it's high up there on books I need to read!

  • ElodieJune 19, 2012 at 10:43 AM

    We do have some books in common :D and I have a lot of the other ones which didn´t make it to my Summer list on my Goodreads TBR list!
    Oh and I loved SECOND CHANCE SUMMER :D Would love to hear your thoughts on it!

  • EricaJune 19, 2012 at 11:05 AM

    Shadow annd Bone and Take A Bow are both brilliant. :)

  • Pocketful of BooksJune 19, 2012 at 11:17 AM

    Ooooof that is one good-looking pile. I like! Shadow and Bone especially looks epic- hope you like it! x

  • SusanneJune 19, 2012 at 12:07 PM

    Great list! I really enjoyed Monument 14. My Life Next Door sounds so good. Thanks for stopping by!

  • yarereviewsJune 19, 2012 at 1:10 PM

    great list! I have most of these books in my TBR too! The List is pretty good :)

  • elenaJune 19, 2012 at 3:09 PM

    Love your list! It's filled with such good contemps like Unbreak My Heart and My Life Next Door. Meant to Be is on mine, I'm probably going to give in and read it soon.

  • Steph (Poetry to Prose)June 19, 2012 at 4:06 PM

    All of the recent reviews for Monument 14 had made me SUPER eager for it. It sounds fantastic and, even though I told myself that I would hold off on buying too many books, I'll probably get it soon. I had some issues with The List, personally, but I still loved it and Siobhan Vivian's voice. She's definitely one of my favorite contemporary authors.

  • AnonymousJune 19, 2012 at 4:40 PM

    Wow, your pile looks awesome! I just finished The List not that long ago and really enjoyed it. I have Shadow and Bone on my 'look for' list - been hearing lots about that one! Unbreak My Heart looks awesome. I didn't know that Second Chance Summer was going to be a tear jerker, thanks for warning me!

  • JenniferJune 19, 2012 at 5:21 PM

    Yeah for My Life Next Door and Shadow & Bone! They sound amazing and I can't wait to read them either.

  • Lee @ Rally the ReadersJune 19, 2012 at 6:39 PM

    The premise of Monument 14 sounds so interesting. I cannot wait to read Shadow and Bone. Great list!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  • MichelleJune 19, 2012 at 8:18 PM

    Woah I love your list... and I'm extremely jealous of all those books you have!!! I want to read like 90% of the books on your list... and the other 10% I already did :)

  • UnknownJune 19, 2012 at 9:24 PM

    I hope you love Shadow and Bone like I did! It's so awesome! I recently read Unbreak My Heart as well and I loved it! Thanks for visiting Elegantly Bound Books :)

  • MelissaJune 19, 2012 at 9:25 PM

    Great list! I have a few of the same on my summer TBR list -- including Second Chance Summer. I have a feeling that it is going to be the BEST summer book of all time, but I'm waiting until our weather is a little more summer-esque, since reading that book in the rain just won't be the same!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog -- I'm a new follower of yours!

  • KimJune 20, 2012 at 3:25 AM

    So many amazing, pretty books *o* I really really want to read Take a Bow, Shadow and Bone and Monument 14 and I'm incredibly jealous that you have copies of them! They just sound so so good! But I really hope you enjoy Second Chance Summer, because well, it's one of my favorite summer reads :D Fantastic list and thanks for stopping by!

  • Jennifer @ A Librarians LibraryJune 20, 2012 at 1:45 PM

    Seems like our lists look pretty similar! You'll have a great summer with those books! Have fun!

  • Just a Lil LostJune 23, 2012 at 6:13 AM

    Great pile!! I've just started both Monument 14 & Shadow and Bone the other day.. and then got sidetracked. LOL ..

    Thanks for stopping by my Top 10 Tuesday!

  • fakestephJune 27, 2012 at 5:28 AM

    Can't wait for these reviews. My Life Next Door is amazing and The List is a really entertaining and fast read.
