Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List

There are SO many books that I really want to read this summer so narrowing it down to 10 will be a little tricky… Many of these books are ones that I’ve had sitting on my shelf or eReader for a sad amount of time that I want to read. Also this list is completely random and unordered.

***Prepare for some sass below. I was in a sassy and sarcastic mood when I was writing this post last night.***

1. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

I’ve been meaning to read this one for such a long time! I’ve heard awesome things about it, plus it’s by Ransom Riggs who is also awesome. So obviously the book must be awesome, too.

2. Paper Towns by John Green

I got this one last summer and still haven’t read it. I live in shame.

 

3. Pandemonium & Requiem by Lauren Oliver

I seriously cannot believe I haven’t finished this series. I’m hoping I’ll be re-motivated to binge read these last two after watch the un-released pilot of the TV show when it’s released on Hulu this Friday! I’m SO excited for it, by the way!

4. Fear by Michael Grant

I can always count on these books for some action and entertainment. Michael Grant, you are too good.

5. A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin

I’ve heard this is kind of a filler book…I’m nervous I won’t be able to get into it. But I shall push through.

6. The One by Kiera Cass (and the novellas)

I really just want to read all the swoon-y kiss-y scenes. I don’t have a preference for guy, I just want to swoon and see who she picks! (Is that shallow of me?)

7. Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

WARNER.

 

8. Through the Ever Night & Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi

Another series I can’t believe I haven’t finished. What is my problem with not finishing series that I LOVED the first book?!

9. City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

While everyone else was freaking out that CoHF came out, I was freaking out that I finally bought my paperback copy of CoLS. Side note: does anyone know the release date for the paperback of Clockwork Princess?

10. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Bring on the Peter Pan feels. I’m not ready, but bring ’em.

What books do you have on your summer TBR list? Let me know in the comments!

Week in Review: June 15th (with a mini TFiOS Movie review!)

Inspired by Anna @ Anna Reads.

WHAT I DID:

IMG_4209While I was on blog hiatus I didn’t really do much exciting…except for seeing The Fault in Our Stars and crying my eyes out. As you can see from the picture I wore my “Okay? Okay.” shirt to the movie, accompanied by my Starbucks. My friend told me we should take pictures and caption them “The Fault in Our Starbucks,” hence the picture. I’m not planning on reviewing the movie as I don’t have much to say about it other than that skeptical fans of the book will have nothing to worry about. It was beautiful and just as emotionally exhausting as the book was, bringing enough tears to fill a river. Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff, and Laura Dern stole the show. The movie had me crying sooner than the book did. We left the theater puffy-eyed and stuffy-nosed, people in line for the next show staring at us on the way out.
