Another Tuesday, another TTT, yay! Except this one feels like signing a contract with the devil, as we all know how consistent I am with my reading lists. I do have whole three months ahead of me, so I solemnly promise I’ll do my best and try to read these ten books. Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and every Tuesday there is a different themed post of top 10 things. This week’s theme is Books to Read By the Pool/At the Beach (This can also serve as your summer TBR), and since I don’t really read novels appropriate for the beach, I’ll do the summer TBR instead. God help me.
I think it’s high time I continue reading Neil Gaiman’s excellent work, so I’ve bought this at a recent book event and can’t wait to start reading it!
I was amazed by the first book in this series, which I’ve finished a couple of days ago and I’ll post my review soon, so I frantically ordered the second part before I even finished the first. I predict ordering the third one once I finish the prologue of this one, I’m seriously in love with this series so far.
I’ve wanted to read Gillian Flynn ever since I watched the movie Gone Girl, but as Sharp Objects is coming out very soon as TV series (with my love Amy Adams in the main role), I’ll start with this one. I have high hopes!
This is one of the recent fantasy novels I’ve been so eager to read but never got the time, so I’m starting with that list this summer, as there’s never a better time like now. I’ve read Goss’s magical short stories and loved them, so I expect no less from her in this novel.
*Deep breaths.* I am ready. I feel I’m finally ready to continue this series, and tackle the 1591 page monster that is The Fiery Cross. I adore this series, and Jamie and Claire mean the world to me, but 1591 pages Diana? Seriously? This novel should count as at least four novels for my GR reading challenge.
I’ve read some awesome reviews of The Silent Companions, and as a huge fan of Gothic fiction I had to order it right away. After almost two months of waiting, it’s finally on my shelf (FU customs), and I can’t wait to read it.
Another mystery I’ve read awesome reviews for, I’ve had it for a long time now, and I’m ready to see what the hype is about!
Look under #4. Except this is my love Victoria, and I adore her Shades of Magic trilogy, so I really want to read her other adult novel, and I mean before the sequel comes out in September.
Look under #4 again haha. 🙂 I’ve bought it in December, and I should have obviously read it then, in the snowy atmosphere, but alas, the evil ARCs got in the way, and I don’t want to wait the next winter, so I’ll do it now. I’m aware I’m breaking some secret bookish rules.
I’ve read the beautiful and sad story of Beren and Lúthien in The Silmarillion, and I knew I needed more of what is in my opinion the greatest love story in fantasy, especially because of the fact Tolkien based the two characters on him and his wife Edith. I’ve skimmed a bit, and Alan Lee’s illustrations are gorgeous as usual, so I can’t wait to get to it!
There are, of course, more books I want to read in the next three months, including some overdue re-reads, and some ARCs, but these are some of the novels I really want to read and enjoy while I sit in front of my fan, trying not to die of heat. What are you guys planning to read during the summer? I’m guessing most of you will have their summer vacation way before me (probably September), so which books will you bring to the beach?
