Top Ten Tuesdays

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. In Jaunary 2018 the meme was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic: Books on My Summer 2020 TBR

Wow, you guys, it’s been forever since I’ve done a Top Ten Tuesdays xD I hope this post finds you all well. Not sure how my summer’s going to turn out other than work as usual but here’s some books I hope to tackle in the coming weeks 🙂

In no particular order:

  1. Secondhand Time: The Last of the Soviets by Svetlana Alexievich — Been going through quite the nonfiction wave lately and I believe this is one of the last two nonfiction titles left on my TBR list. About time I get to it, it’s only been sitting there for the last few years, lol.
  2. The House at the Edge of Night by Catherine Banner — Another book that has long been sitting unread on my eReader, I always held it off since it felt like a summer read (with an island involved)
  3. The Inheritance Trilogy by N.K. Jemisin — This trilogy in one volume has long sat on my TBR pile. I actually started reading it but it is quite a tome (and quite uncomfortable to read in my usual reading posture lol) but I’m glad that this is the year I finally am reading it lol. Bit of a cheat to include it here but I am slowly chipping my way through it.
  4. The Dark Between the Stars by Kevin J. Anderson — Another book that’s long sat on my eReader. Dash a bit of science fiction into my TBR list this summer 🙂
  5. Fire Dance by Ilana C. Myer — I really enjoyed her first book and with the third book in the trilogy coming out sometime this year I guess it’s time to read this second volume 🙂 Been meaning to for some time now but yeah, still haven’t.
  6. Resistance Women by Jennifer Chiaverini — My mum actually picked up this book and thought maybe I’d like to read it (certainly piqued her interest) so yeah, just might get around to reading it this summer.
  7. Loving a Lost Lord by Mary Jo Putney — It’s also been a while since I’ve read some historical romance. So here we go, picked this book up sme time ago. Never read anything from this author so I’m looking forward to it 🙂
  8. The Tenth Muse by Catherine Cheung — Picked this book up on a whim. It’s not terribly long, which is incentive for adding it to this season’s wishlist, but the premise sounds interesting too.
  9. Circe by Madeline Miller — This book has been circulating quite a bit for the past year or so. So why not, might make it a summer read.
  10. The Rhythm Section by Mark Burnell — For something light…I found out about this book by the movie adaptation starring Blake Lively that was released earlier this year. As I still have to massively catch up with Daniel Silva’s books, I could read this in the meantime for a dash of thriller on my to-read.

And that’s my list of books that I hope to tackle this summer 🙂 What are you hoping to read this season? Let me know, I’d love to hear from you! 🙂

  1. Hi, Liane!! Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland a couple weeks ago (apologies it took me a while to visit here). Hope you’re doing well, and enjoying some great reads – maybe some of these summer TBR hopefuls. 🙂 I’ve heard of Jennifer Chiaverini, but haven’t read anything by her, and like you, I’ve seen “Circe” around the blogging community a LOT!
