Top Ten Tuesday: Books To Be Read This Summer

Happy Tuesday! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday from The Broke and the Bookish is all about the books on my ‘to be read’ list for this summer. I almost decided not to do this week considering I’m in the middle of my Classic Novel List, but I figured I could include some of those books plus the ones that are actually on my TBR list.

1. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

This is on my Classic list, but I do hope to read it by summer’s end. From the few people that I’ve talked to that have read it, enjoyed it, so I’m hoping that I enjoyed it just as much or more as Brothers Karamazov.

2. Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

I read the first of this trilogy about a year ago and I’ve been meaning to read the last two books. I thought the story and ideas were interesting and new.

3. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

This is one of the books that I found while browsing the bookshelves at Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago. I can’t wait until I can dive back into this genre that I love.

4. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

I read the first two books about a year and half ago and loved it. Such a kicks character. I really hope to dive back into this world again.

5. Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

I usually don’t go for non-fiction books, but the concept of this book is an interesting one and I think highly relevant in today’s world. Plus I’m a part of the generation he mostly looks at.

6. The Great Glass Sea by Josh Weil

I was just in Portland, OR this last weekend and I of course had to stop by Powell’s. This is one of the books that I saw and intrigued me, so hopefully I get to buy and read it. :)

7. No Place to Fall by Jaye Robin Brown

This sounds like a story that I would really connect with and because of that I’m intrigued and really want to read it.

8. Armada by Ernest Cline

I read his Ready Player One a couple years ago and loved it! I just found out that this book is coming out in July, read the summary, and now really want to read it! I tend to lean more towards fantasy than sci-fi, but if a book keeps me interest, I’ll read it!

9. Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee

Who wouldn’t want to read this? :)

10. The Full Volume of the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I received the full volume last Christmas and have been itching to read the stories, so maybe I’ll get to at least start this summer.

I know this list is a little random and I didn’t include the rest of my classics, but there are so many books to read!!

What’s on your TBR this Summer list?

Happy Reading!

    • If you do read Cline’s RPO I would love to know your thoughts considering you do play video games, I wonder if it would be any different from mine (someone who used to play, but doesn’t anymore)?


  1. Great list! Anna Karenina is on my TBR for the year, but not for the summer. I have already committed to Moby Dick, and I can only take on one huge classic per season. It’s my personal rule lol. I’ve also Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas on my summer TBR. I really hope I like it, because I’ve heard such good things about this author. Good luck on your list!
