Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR

Hellooooo summer ☀️

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Okay so my TBR is hella overflowing. And I think I’m finally over the slump that set in at the end of May so I plan to read a TON this summer.

But here are 10 of books I’m most excited about!


1. A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow

I’ve been crazy excited about this book since I saw this stunning cover 😍 This is a YA magical realism about a magical sirens set in Portland. There’s a murder trial, family drama, and lots of secrets.

2. Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo

I just got this on audio through Scribd so I will be listening to this very soon! This is a YA contemporary about two sisters who learn of each after they father passes away in a plane crash. I wasn’t aware of this before, but apparently this plane crash actually happened!

3. Mayhem by Estelle Laure

I received a physical ARC of this back in early May and I still haven’t read it 🙈 This releases in mid July so I definitely to finish it asap! This is being pitched as a feminist mashup of The Lost Boys and The Craft and I literally don’t need to know any more.

4. Daring and the Duke (The Bareknuckle Bastards #3) by Sarah MacLean

This is the third and final book in the Bareknuckle Bastards series and I’m not ready. I honestly have no idea how Sarah MacLean is going to pull off this redemption arc but I’m trusting her. This is a historical romance series following the 3 bastard siblings who didn’t inherit the dukedom from their father.

5. A Murderous Relation (Veronica Speedwell #5) by Deanna Raybourn

I’ve been hoarding this book because it’s the latest release in this series and I’m not ready to be caught up. But I miss these characters and I’m desperate for more Stoker in my life. This is a historical mystery series following Veronica and her companion Stoker as they solve mysterious crimes in Victorian London.

6. Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust

This is another e-arc I have that I really need to get to asap. This is one of my most anticipated releases of the year! It’s a YA fantasy about a girl who is cursed to be poisonous to the touch.

7. Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power

Another most anticipated 2020 release! Wilder Girls was a wild ride and while I didn’t end up loving the ending, I adored Rory Power’s writing. This is her latest YA horror that follows a girl who is trying to uncover the secrets of her family’s past.

8. Home Before Dark by Riley Sager

This is Riley Sager’s later thriller and it follows a woman who returns the home made famous by her father’s horror memoir. There she starts to believe that her father wasn’t crazy at all, and the house might really be haunted. Riley Sager’s books always leave me terrified and shocked, so I’m really excited for this new release!

9. The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson

Man this TBR is full of all the spooky books, apparently I’m starting early this year 😅 I won’t lie, I don’t entirely understand this synopsis, but it’s witchy AF and that’s all I really care about. As far as I can tell – this is a YA fantasy about a girl who discovers her mother’s connection the four powerful witches who were killed by the town’s prophet and the secrets society has been keeping.

10. Where Dreams Descend (Kingdom of Cards #1) by Janella Angeles

This book was on a pervious seasonal TBR but the release date was pushed back to August so I decided to wait to read it. This is YA fantasy that follows a group of magicians and daring game. This sounds like a mashup of The Night Circus and Moulin Rouge and I’m here for it.


What books are you planning to read this summer??
