Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and you can find a full list of past and future topics here. I love making TBRs (I'm not so good at sticking to them but that's a whole other issue) and there are a whole load of books I am determined to read this summer. That said, not sure how much reading time I'm going to have with my module exam and YALC but I'm being hopeful!!
1) Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody
I need this because 1) GORGEOUS COVER and 2) a Carnival. Carnivals and circuses are my reading kryptonite so I am 100% on board for this!
2) Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo
I mean. Leigh Bardugo is one of my all time favourite writers. Wonder Woman is my all time favourite superhero (although there isn't that much competition - I tend to love the villains) so this is a combination that should work super well!
3) The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
This was described as Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda meets the 1700s which is just everything I never knew I needed? Honestly my anticipation for this book is waaaay off the scale at this point.
4) Roar by Cora Carmack
Kind of a more tentative one? I love the idea of storm magic but I dunno. Going into this kind of skeptical and I'm not sure why. BUT again gorgeous cover.
5) Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee
I'll be honest I wasn't initially that excited for this because me and Tolstoy? We don't get on so well. I've been trying to finish Anna Karenina for years and don't even get me started on War and Peace. But I love the idea of the plot and I adore that the MC is asexual so fingers crossed I can get past my Tolstoy aversion and love this!!
6) Want by Cindy Pon
This is one of those books I want purely because of hype. I'm not even sure what this is about honestly. Not a clue. But everyones raving about it and/or can't wait to get their hands on it so I'm getting vicariously excited? Is that a thing?
7) Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moira Fowley-Doyle
I loved Fowley-Doyle's debut The Accident Season and this sounds just as great. Plus this cover just appeals to me more and more the longer I look at it.
8) The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson
ALL I know about this (literally all) is that there is some kind of survival element? I love survival stories for some reason. I would never actually "survive" any of them cause I am useless but they're so much fun to read!
9) Dreamfall by Amy Plum
As someone who has insomnia this sounds like it could be potentially terrifying to me. And I'm not sure why that appeals to me but it does. Bring on the terror? Also I really enjoyed Amy Plum's past trilogy Die For Me.
10) A Beautiful Poison by Lydia Kang
Anything recommended for fans of Libba Bray or Cat Winters is just automatically going on my to-read list no questions asked. I've heard no advance anything about this book but I am still super excited for it!
So many good ones on your list! I'm really excited for The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue. :)ReplyDelete
Same!! It looks like it will be incredible!! :)Delete
Daughter of the Burning City I totally want for that cover! And the synopsis doesn't sound half bad either! Roar looks kinda good too, and so does Dream Fall.ReplyDelete
Haha yeah its a good job the blurb is also good cause I'd definitely have bought it just for the cover and now I don't look QUITE so superficial!!Delete
Wow, you've got some good books on here. I'm interested in Daughter of the Burning City, A Beautiful Poison and Spellbook of the Lost and Found. Hope you make time for at least some of these.ReplyDelete
So do I! Going to be horribly busy the next couple of months but I really, really want to read these books!Delete
Great list! A Beautiful Poison looks amazing! I hope you'll enjoy it! Have a great week and happy reading!ReplyDelete
I know!! I'm hoping for great things from that one!! Have a great week!Delete
Simon Vs the Homosapiens meets the 1700s? That sounds like a winning combination. I've been on the lookout for some interesting historical reads since Versailles came back on TV, so The Gentleman's Guide sounds ideal!ReplyDelete
Nicole @ Whatadifferenceawordmakes (Wordpress)
OMG yes Versailles!! I was so enjoying that and I've completely forgotten to keep watching - thanks for the reminder!!Delete
I saw Tash Hearts Tolstoy on a couple of lists today - it sounds quite interesting.ReplyDelete
Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda in the 1700s? The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue is on my TBR immediately.
I'm hoping to start Shadow and Bone because I've heard only amazing things about Leigh Bardugo's books. Hope you enjoy Wonder Woman!
Same - it just sounds like such a wonderful combination how could anyone say no? I hope you enjoy Shadow and Bone! I liked the trilogy but definitely read Six of Crows as well because that duology is incredible!!Delete
I'm so so excited for so many of these, especially Tash Hearts Tolstoy and Dreamfall. They sound so good!ReplyDelete
Megan @ http://wanderingsofabookbird.blogspot.co.uk/
I know!! This summer is full of exciting releases!!Delete
Great list! I'm dying to read The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue too!ReplyDelete
It just needs to come out already cause the anticipation is slowly killing me!Delete
Ooh I hope you get around to these books this summer! :-) You've got some fab ones on your list.ReplyDelete
Same! They all look so amazing I HAVE to get to at least some of them!!Delete
I had a few of these on my list as well! I am also a TBR list-making connoisseur, but my follow through needs some work. :)ReplyDelete
My list if you're interested : http://chandareads.com/2017/05/23/top-ten-tuesday-9/
Haha! It's so much fun making the lists but that follow through - so hard right? :)Delete
Daughter of The Burning City sounds so good! You're going to YALC this year? So am I!ReplyDelete
My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2017/05/23/top-ten-tuesday-108/
Yes!! We're going for the whole three days so maybe we'll bump into you there? That'd be so cool!Delete
I've heard so many wonderful things about Gentleman's Guide. I really want to read it! I hope you get the chance to read all of these this summer!ReplyDelete
~ Lefty @ The Left-Handed Book Lover
I know! I'm so jealous of everyone who got an ARC cause I am just desperate to read it! Thanks for stopping by!Delete
Wonderful list! I want to read almost all of these too, especially Wonder Woman and The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue.ReplyDelete
They're my two most anticipated as well! Thanks for stopping by!Delete
I loved The Accident Season, so I'm super stoked about Spellbook. I'm really curious about Want. Hope you get a chance to pick up all of these this summer!ReplyDelete
Same! The Accident Season was so, so good! And I am super excited for Want considering I'm not 100% sure what it's even about!! :)Delete
Great list! Roar sounds really interesting. I'll have to add it to my list. Here is my Top Ten TuesdayReplyDelete
I'm a big fan of any elemental/storm magic books so its definitely promising!Delete
Spellbook of the Lost and Found and Dreamfall are TOTALLY on my TBR too. Both sound like they have that extra something interesting in them.ReplyDelete
Moira Fowley-Doyle's writing is so unique and wonderful so I'm confident Spellbook will be incredible - and Dreamfall does sound so interesting as well!Delete
Hold the phone. Leigh Bardugo is writing a Wonder Woman novel!? How did I now know this???? Definitely going to have to read that.ReplyDelete
Yes! Leigh Bardugo combined with Wonder Woman can ONLY be a winner right???Delete
This is the first I've heard of Want and I'm intrigued to see what that books all about. I can't believe I actually forgot about Bardugo's Wonder Woman. That is definitely one of my most anticipated.ReplyDelete
I keep forgetting about it somehow and then every time I remember is so joyful! Can't wait for it to be released!!Delete
