Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today is all about our summer TBR. Now, normally, this is the time where I make a list of all cute contemporaries I want to read because for some reason summer means contemporaries for me. But not this year. This year, because of moving and adulting and stuff, I have an unfortunate backlog of a lot of books that already came out earlier in the year that I REALLY want to get to. SO the summertime, when life usually gets a little less busy, seems like the PERFECT time to catch up.
Here are twelve books on my Summer TBR:
This has been my most anticipated book since before it was even ever announced. I’ve been wanting more Nikolai since I first read about him all those years ago. So naturally I got this book the day it came out. And naturally I have not even started it since….
It’s a heist story set in 1889 Paris featuring a band of lovable characters. NEED I SAY MORE? Except then there was all the hype and I got a bit intimidated and haven’t even started it.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of my very first tv obsessions. To this day I still love the tv show with all my heart. To revisit the world of vampires and slayers and get to know new characters is just a lovely bonus.
This cat-and-mouse game inspired by ancient Indian history and Hindu mythology has been on my TBR for too long!
All I needed were the words ‘inspired by ‘Ten Things I Hate About You”. And of course ‘Taming of the Shrew’, but really all I hear is Ten Things I Hate About You. Reminder that I still need to read this duo’s previous novel as well!
I already love Christine’s booktube channel, so I’m super intrigued by her first novel! Plus, the theme is just so universal: haven’t we all wanted to do certain parts of our lives over again – again, but better?
Ancient Arabia + woman masquerading as a man + magic + Prince of Death = I WANT IT! And I’ve wanted it for too long already.
“They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic.”
Misfits in space. Misfits in space! Misfits in space!! Read it now! Read it now! Read it now!
The cover drew me in and the fact that it’s a historical, feminist fantasy set along the Silk Road is what sold it to me.
Another whimsical fantasy by Margaret Rogerson AND an enemies-to-lovers AND the power of libraries? The only question is why I haven’t even started this yet.
The plan is to read this gorgeous f/f fantasy in time for the sequel releasing in November. I can do that right?
After falling in love with Brigid Kemmerer’s writing earlier this year, this Beauty and the Beast retelling only got an even higher spot on my TBR!
Have you already read and loved some of these?
If so, which one should I definitely start with?
