T10T: Summer TBR

June 25, 2019


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Every season, I dedicate one T10T post to that season’s TBR.
Since summer started last week, it’s time to look back on my spring TBR and let you know which 10 books I specifically want to read over the next few months!

While you’re here, you can also check out the summer TBR jar I posted yesterday!

Spring TBR: 60% success!

  1. Girls on the Verge ✅
  2. In the Neighborhood of True ✅
    • (DNF)
  3. The Raven’s Tale ✅
    • (set aside for now)
  4. The Bride Test ✅
  5. Hope and Other Punchlines ✅
    • (in progress)
  6. That Kind of Guy ✅
  7. On the Come Up ❌
  8. The Priory of the Orange Tree ❌
  9. A Thousand Perfect Notes ❌
  10. A Heart in a Body in the World ❌


? Growing Things & Other Stories — Paul Tremblay
adult horror anthology; releases july 2nd

Knowing Paul’s writing, this should be a really exciting and twist-y collection of shorts!

? Changeling — William Ritter
MG dark fantasy; releases july 16th

The author of Jackaby is kicking off this exciting MG dark fantasy series, and I’ve always loved anything involving changelings!

? The Gossamer Mage — Julie E. Czerneda
adult fantasy; releases august 6th

In a world where mages trade years off their lives for power from the goddess of Death, the most powerful mage sets out on a mission to kill Her.

Darkdawn — Jay Kristoff
adult fantasy; releases september 3rd

The undoubtedly epic finale to the Nevernight Chronicle series. My heart. ?

? The Girl the Sea Gave Back — Adrienne Young
YA historical fantasy; releases september 3rd

Set in the same world as Sky in the Deep, this one follows Tova, a ‘Truthtongue’ who can see the future.

? Fence, Vol. 3 — C.S. Pacat
YA/NA contemporary graphic novel; releases august 20th

I’ve so thoroughly enjoyed this graphic novel series and I’m dying to get the next volume! I know I could read the single issues but I prefer having full volumes.


? Wolfsong — T.J. Klune
NA paranormal romance

I love a good werewolf story, but it’s been a really long time since I read one that featured m/m rep, and I had so much fun with the last T.J. Klune read of mine!

?‍♀️ Rolling in the Deep — Mira Grant
adult horror novella

I’m downright mad at myself that I still haven’t read this, and summer time seems perfect for it, plus it’d give me the perfect opportunity to put Into the Drowning Deep on my fall TBR!

? Summer Days and Summer Nights — Stephanie Perkins
YA contemporary anthology

I bought this months ago and have been saving it for summer!


Dreamland — Sarah Dessen
YA contemporary

Summertime is always the best time (though there’s no bad time) for Dessen rereads, and I think this is the only old title of hers that I’ve never reread before.

Do you enjoy creating seasonal TBRs?

    1. Love your symbols and how you updated us on the previous list. That’s why I love reading these even when I’m not participating (I just published another author interview on my blog instead). You might want to take a look – Jane Davis is an amazing author!

    1. I still have fond thoughts of some of the stories in Summer Days and summer nights. I hope you like it!
      Priory of the Orange Tree was on my spring TBR, and I wasn’t sure I was going to finish it in the spring, since it’s so long. I hope you like these!

    1. I hope you get to all of them. Enjoy your reading!

    1. ooh you will love Dreamland! it’s so much more than just a summer romance! i hope you really enjoy it – it’s one of my favourites

    1. You have some great books on here. Well done on completing 60% of your spring tbr. They don’t usually work out that well for me. Most of the time I only read one or two. They’re still fun to make though! I really want to read fence too but haven’t started it yet. Good luck on your summer tbr 🙂

    1. I ended up really liking C.G. Drew’s A Thousand Perfect Notes! It was a good contemporary read amongst all of my fantasy novels, and she has such a cool, unique writing style!

    1. Do you think you’ll go back to The Raven’s Tale sometime?
      My TTT.

    1. Woaah you got through a heck of a lot! This post is a great way to keep a track of your progress! I bet they’re great to look over at the end of the year? xo

    1. Great list! I need to read The Kiss Quotient before I can move on to The Bride Test. Hope you enjoy all of these!

    1. What a list! I just finished my Godsgrave reread to start DD on July 1st and I am not sure my heart can handle this…

    1. OH MY GOSH, I NEED TO GET TO The Nevernight Chronicle series. SOMEDAY. Soon, hopefully. Ahhh, I’m bummed to hear that In the Neighborhood of True was a DNF title.

    1. I agree you did do well with Spring TBR, 60% nice. But I missed why you didn’t finish On the Come Up & Priory of the Orange Tree! I’ve not read either but have added to my list.
      Best to your goals!
