Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish, and I try to do them whenever I a) remember and b) get around to it. This week’s is top ten books on my summer TBR list – for those who don’t know, TBR means ‘to be read’. I’ve already bought 4 to read this summer, so I’ll put a couple of those on here, but others… well, let’s find out, eh? (It’ll be finding out for me, too, because I never know what I’m going to put on these until I make the actual lists.)
- Long Journey to Deep Canon by TT Flynn.
I bought this book along with 2 other Westerns for 50p each at a shop a while back, intending to read them this summer… so of course they had to be read!
- Heartside Bay: The New Girl by Cathy Cole.
Like the book above, I also bought this for 50p and though it’d be a fun, chick-lit read on a beach somewhere. I don’t know where, yet, but THERE WILL BE A BEACH. (Even if it’s just a pot of sand in my back garden, I think that counts.)
- Harry Potter by JK Rowling.
I don’t really know if this counts, as I have of course read it before, but I’m planning on re-reading it, so yay! More Hogwarts for me! (And more sorrow come September. Although I’m planning to go on my college’s Harry Potter trip so, y’know. HARRY POTTER *WHOO*. (*Ahem*))
- Narnia by CS Lewis.
These books were missed out from my childhood, so I’m planning on catching up this summer. Yes, I have them and yes I cannot wait to read them. (Also, I’m planning on using them in a project I’m doing for college, so, y’know, I kinda have to read them…)
- Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkein.
I’ve read The Hobbit, but not LoTR. So, I probably should, eh? Perhaps I’ll take them on my plane journey to America? I guess we’ll find out. But, like Narnia, I’m planning on using LoTR in a project, so I kinda need to read them too.
- Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods by Rick Riordan.
I can’t believe this is on my shelf and I haven’t read it yet.
- The first 3 in the Dark Touch novels series by Amy Meredith.
Why only the first 3 (there’s 4)? Well, they’re the only 3 I have… These have been on my shelf for ages and they’re quite small, so I think I can read them fairly quickly. (Actually, y’know, maybe I’ll start one tonight… Hmm, yes. That sounds good.)
- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.
When I did Top Ten Classics I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read Yet, Little Women was number 8 on the list. I’ve downloaded it onto my Kindle and I think it’s time I read it. And although there was originally a sentence here about Emma Watson in a film adaptation of it, I am saddened to discover that this is not true. 😦 Still. Books.
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
At my old school, some people studied this book. I didn’t, but I still would like to read it, and over the summer I would have enough time and energy to actually get onto it. (Also on Top Ten Classics I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read Yet: number 1)
- Paper Towns by John Green.
I thought I should probably put some sort of YA realistic fiction in and as the film is coming out and I have this book but have yet to read it, this was the perfect candidate. Roll on.
So there you have it: my Top Ten Books on my Summer TBR list. (I should probably keep this handy.) What’s yours?
