Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!
This week’s theme is all about the books on our summer TBR! I’m a mood reader, so I love reaching for books set in warm climates during the summer, but I must admit my summer TBR this year is a little all over the place.
I have books set in warm climates, summer releases I’m anticipating, and a few romance novels because, to be honest, 2020 has kind of sucked and right now I need some light fluff with some guaranteed happily ever afters alongside some of the more serious books I’d like to read.
Queen of the Conquered by Kacen Callender: This Caribbean-inspired fantasy sounds like the perfect summer read.
Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia: I’m so excited for this book! My love for Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s work knows no bounds.
The Empire of Gold by S.A Chakraborty: After the way The Kingdom of Copper ended, I have a mighty need for this book! I adore Chakraborty’s world-building, and Ali is possibly one of my favourite characters in fantasy, and as this one’s released in June I’ll definitely be reading it.
Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb: I’m taking part in the Elderlingalong this year, and this chonky beast, the third and final book in the Farseer Trilogy, is the group read for June and July before we move on to the next trilogy in this huge series.
Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri: I’ve heard amazing things about this novel – I’ve seen Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense sing its praises enough to know that I want to give it a try – and summer seems like the perfect time to get to it.
Beach Read by Emily Henry: This contemporary romance novel about a pair of rival authors who swap genres for the summer sounds like the ideal summer read, and I’ve been hearing fantastic things about it.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren: I’ve heard so many good things about this contemporary romance novel and I was finally able to pick it up fairly recently when the kindle edition was reduced to 99p. It’s another one that sounds like perfect summer reading.
A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow: This contemporary fantasy novel about sirens sounds so summery, and I’m in love with the cover.
Dragon Unleashed by Grace Draven: I didn’t particularly like Phoenix Unbound, but I can pretty much always rely on Draven as a romantasy author to transport me somewhere completely new for a few hours.
Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert: I read Get a Life, Chloe Brown earlier this month and it was such a fun read, so I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series which I’ve been lucky enough to receive via NetGalley. I tend to reach for more contemporary reads in the summer.
