Top Ten Summer Reads
Hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
Reading in the summer is wonderful as it can finally be done outside for those of living in places where winter is a force to reckoned with. With that being said these are the Top Ten books I’m looking forward to reading this summer:
The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
I love the title and the cover. Not quite sure what it’s about, but I’m excited to read it based on those two facts alone.
The Apprentices (Book 2) by Maile Meloy
Loved the first book in this series, so I can’t wait to dig into this one!
Awaken (Book 3) by Meg Cabot
The final book in this trilogy with a unique and modern twist on the Hades and Persephone story. I’m excited to see how everything will end…can..not..wait!
The Passion of the Purple Plumeria (Book 10) by Lauren Willig
Another Pink Carnation book….super excited!!
The Fairest of Them All by Carolyn Turgeon
A redone fairy tale. Can’t wait to give it a try.
Pure by Julianna Baggot
I’ll be reading this in July as part of Your Pick for Nik’s Book Club. I have wanted to read this for a long time so now I have a reason 🙂
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
I am still on the waiting list for this one at the library and haven’t decided if I’m going to the signing 4 hours away next month or not so I haven’t purchased it yet, but it sounds like it will be a great book. Of course Gaiman is amazing so I’m sure it will be
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
Another WWII by Code Name Verity’s author (which I still haven’t read so I will be reading that too…) Code Name Verity comes highly recommended so I’m sure this will be amazing too.
Fearless (Book 2) by Cornelia Funke
Still haven’t gotten around to reading this even though it’s been out for a while, but I will this summer…I promise. Love Cornelia Funke!!
And a classic…not sure which one though…I finished Jane Austen’s works and there are about a million others to choose from. It’s so hard to pick one!
What will you be reading? Got any more suggestions for me?
