Top Ten Books I Wanna Read This Summer

This week's Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by Broke and the Bookish) was a freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books I Wanna Read This Summer, because a) it is timely and b) maybe publicly posting it will help me actually get these read.

Freefall by Mindi Scott

I've had this checked out from the library for about a year and a half, and it's about time I actually read it.

Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway

Bought this one a while back and I keep hearing things about that make it sounds like an awesome summer read.

I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga

Only have this one for a little while from the library so. Also SERIAL KILLERS WOOO.

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

Sounds like this one will give me the sadz but also be worth it.

Streams of Babel by Carol Plum-Ucci

I've had the sequel to this to review for forever, and I'm done putting this series off.

Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves

Bought a while back and SERIAL KILLERS WOOO.

The Gathering by Kelly Armstrong

This one showed up randomly in my mailbox around its release date, and if I don't read something by Armstrong soon my family may murder me.

Stay by Deb Caletti

Again, showed up randomly around its release date.

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

Sad I haven't read this one yet, right?

Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender

Ghosts! Yay! Also I have the sequel to review.


  1. Lol, your library lets you keep a book for a year and a half??

    The Bad Girls Don't Die series is very good - I found the second and third book to be better than the first.

    1. They do! The max you can renew a book there is 200 times. I love it, hahaha.

      Good to know! Hopefully I'll be able to get to both soon.

  2. I really enjoyed Bad Girls Don't Die--it's a great grown-up ghost story.

  3. I wish I could keep a book from the library for a year and a half! Great list!

  4. My students love Bad Girls Don't Die! Have fun reading your books!

  5. I loved Stay. So I definitely hope you get to read that one soon. The Sky is Everywhere is on my list too though the sadness factor has me putting it off no matter how many times I add it to my immediate read list.

    1. I'll try! I've heard nothing but great things about it. And I'm with you on The Sky Is Everywhere, but I still see people praise it, so it's time I read it.

  6. Good list!! Audrey Wait was a cute light read... The Sky is Everywhere and Stay were both pretty deep. Bad girls don't die sounds good i may have to pick that one up :)

    My TTT- Books That Scared Me

    1. Yeah Audrey Wait sounds like a good beach read. I love deep, so yay! :)

  7. You have listed a bunch of books that I want to read, too, like Audrey, Wait! and I Hunt Killers and some of my faves The Sky is Everywhere and The Book Thief - both fantastic (and they'll make you cry!)

    1. I'm onto I Hunt Killers now, and so far it's VERY twisted and creepy and oh so good. Ah, I don't know if I can take anymore crying after TFIOS. 0.o But if they're some of your faves they must be worth it.
