Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR List.  So hard to know for sure what I'm going to read but this is my tentative list:

1.  Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness - I've been impatiently waiting for this book ever since I read the first book in this series!!

2.  The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey - sometimes it's nice to read about the cold when it's sweltering!

3.  Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi - I've heard lots of good things so I'm excited to read this!

4.  The Rebel Wife by Taylor M. Polites - I need some historical fiction in my life!

5.  Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry (Btown Booksters next read!)

6.  Scarlet by A. C. Gaughen - the cover alone sold me :)

7.  The Probable Future by Alice Hoffman - recommended by Anne over at The Book Garden and I can't wait to read it!

8.  Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly - this one's been on my TBR for too long!

9.  Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop - recommended by the always reliable Jen at Introverted Reader.

10.  Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty - perfect for reading by the pool!


  1. I am excited for Shadow of Night too! I hope you love The Probable Future as much as I did!

  2. Oh my gosh, A Northern Light is one of my favorite books EVER. I hope you read and fall madly in love with it as I have.

    I'm pretty curious about Lonesome Dove. I've heard the audio for that is fantastic.

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  3. Oh! I want to read Scarlet! I also want to read the book before Shadow of Night. There is a ton of stuff I want to read! lol.
