Top Ten Tuesday {3} My Summer TBR List

Today I'm sharing the top ten books on my reading list this summer!

One of my favourite things about summer is simply having more free time to read books. I end up with so many readings for school during the school year, that it's harder for me to read for fun. So I use the summer as an opportunity get caught up!


  1. Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J Maas
    So this one doesn't come out until September 2nd BUT that's right before school stars for me so I have approximately one day to read it during my summer vacation and the last day of summer isn't until the end of September so this one TOTALLY COUNTS. I also feel like I don't need to explain this one, because duh, it's ToG.
  2. Tomorrow's Kingdom (The Gypsy King #3) by Maureen Fergus
    I love this series (to the moon and back) and while I'm sad it's almost over, I'm thrilled to read the last book! I highly recommend The Gypsy King to those of you who like fantasy books with great (funny, brave) characters and bonus: Maureen is a Canadian author!
  3. Midnight Thief (Midnight Thief #1) by Livia Blackburne
    I've been excited for this book ever since I read that Livia loves Tamora Pierce (who is, in my opinion, the great queen of YA fantasy). Then I read her prequel novella, Poison Dance, and fell in love with the world she had created. I have an ARC of this one that I'll be reading shortly. I know some people might say there are too many assassin fantasy books, but they're wrong. You can't have too many.
  4. Breathe, Annie, Breathe (Hundred Oaks #5) by Miranda Kenneally
    Miranda has written some really great books in the Hundred Oaks series, and I always enjoy them. But Breathe, Annie, Breathe stands out to me with the focus on running - I started running a little while ago myself and I'm not a naturally-gifted runner AT ALL. So I think this one will be very interesting.
  5. The Girl with All the Gifts by M. R. Carey
    I have an ARC of this one that I've been meaning to get to, and I've heard great things about this book so I'm just hoping it will be as creepy and amazing as I've heard!
  6. Conversion by Katherine Howe
    Conversion has been highly recommended to me, and I've heard that it's a very thought-provoking book - perfect for me!
  7. Of Metal and Wishes (Of Metal and Wishes #1) by Sarah Fine
    This one has been on my wishlist for a long time (how amazing does it sound?! A ghost in a SLAUGHTERHOUSE). I have an ARC of this one so it'll be read VERY soon.
  8. Avalon (Avalon #1) by Mindee Arnett
    I've really been enjoying sci-fi lately, and I picked up Avalon a little while ago but haven't had a chance to read it yet. But I know I'll read it over the summer for sure. I love adventure, and even better if it's set in space!
  9. Lailah (The Styclar Saga #1) by Nikki Kelly
    Lailah is very popular already, and although paranormal can be somewhat hit or miss for me this sounds like one I'm really going to love! I like the vampire/angel concept and I'm curious to see where it goes.
  10. The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3) by Richelle Mead
    I need to get caught up with this series because as much as I love it, I'm a couple books behind and I'd like to get caught up before the fifth book comes out!

Are there any other books I need to add to my summer TBR list? There are so many great books, it was hard to choose only 10!

Going to look up The Gypsy King! Right now I want to get ALL the fantasy books and don't want to read anything else. Also need to look up Of Metal and Wishes! Ghost + slaughterhouse? Gimme!
Midnight Thief made my list too! VERY excited about that one (and you're right. There is no such thing as too many assassin books!)
I'm just telling myself that with waiting until September for Heir of Fire I at least don't have to wait more than a year until the last book :P (and I'm just going to read Assassin's Blade until then^^)

I definitely need to look up a lot of these books, there's a lot of new ones I didn't know about! :)

Have you read "The collector" and "Fire and Flood" by Victoria Scott? They are amazing! <3

It sounds like you certainly have some wonderful books picked out for the summer. I hadn't heard of Maureen Fergus but after looking up The Gypsy King, I decided to add it to the wishlist. I hope you enjoy your summer and your books to read for fun!
