 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! 

This week the topic is top 10 books on our summer TBR list! I decided to split this. First, the top 5 I want to read this summer because they’re summer books to me and I’ve been meaning to read for awhile. Then, then top 5 that are releasing this summer!

Top 5 Books I Want to Be Reading Out in the Sun!

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

3. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: I just finished Morgan’s newest release, Since You’ve Been Gone and I can’t wait to devour her other books. I have heard I need to bring tissues to this one so…maybe I’ll find a secluded corner in the park for this one!

4. Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland: I started this (got maybe 1 chapter in) and somehow forgot to go back to it. Seems like a perfect summer read!

Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

5. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo: Okay, so technically this is pubbed already because I’m up late finishing this post BUT! Whatever. I can’t wait to see how the trilogy ends! I’ve been dying for this one and that cover looks just gorgeous! (June 17th!)

  1. You’ll love The Distance Between Us! So cute! I love your other picks too-I almost put Open Road Summer on mine, there’s just too many great books out/coming out!

  2. Oooo, I want to read Open Road Summer, I hear it’s really good. Also, the country music bits appeal to me.

    OMG OMG OMG RUIN & RISING, CANNOT WAIT FOR MY COPY TO GET HERE, in fact I am speaking all in caps, that’s how excited I am!

  3. I just finished reading Second Chance Summer on FATHER’S DAY. Bad idea. I bawled like a baby. I really enjoyed that book. I’m also looking forward to Open Road Summer, and I’ve heard really good things about Ruin and Rising. Great list!

    Here’s my TTT!

  4. OOoohhh!! Nice picks!! 🙂 I like that you’ve included some older books. I still need to read Golden!! I also am excited about The Beautiful Ashes after snagging that at BEA! As for some of your others– you are going to loooove Nantucket Blue, The Distance Between Us, and Open Road Summer!!! <3 Oh, and Let's Get Lost is our book club pick this month!

  5. Oh I totally forgot to put Nantucket Blue on my list! I even brought it to the beach and everything! (Didn’t get to it of course.) Yay for us and our overlaps! I loved Open Road Summer and Golden! I think you will too. 🙂 Super excited for HoF, Beautiful Ashes, Midnight Thief, and I also want to read Second Chance Summer! Great list Wendy!

  6. I’m reading Golden this week too! There are so many positive reviews about it and it just LOOKS like a nice summer contemporary read, doesn’t it? I also want to read Open Road Summer because it’s another summertime vibe. I read soooo much more contemporary in the summer. It just feels like the season for books set in the real world.

  7. I keep eyeballing Heir of Fire. On the one hand, I can’t wait to dive in and fall in love and freak out and swoon and feel all the feels. On the other hand, once I read it, then I have to wait a whole freaking year (actually longer if I can’t get my hands on an ARC of the 4th one) to read the next one. So yeah… I just keep having a staring contest with it every time I walk into the house and see it sitting there all innocently on the shelf.

    Also, I just started Since You’ve Been Gone! I’m not very far in, but liking it so far. We should read Second Chance Summer together! I have it on my Kindle.

  8. HEIR OF FIRE!!!! Clearly a winning choice right there 😀 The Beautiful Ashes, Midnight Thief and Let’s Get Lost are on my wishlist/TBR shelf as well. I actually read the first 4 chapters of The Beautiful Ashes in line at BEA it it was VERY promising 😀 I still need to read Shadow and Bone (I know, it’s shameful right?!) but I own it and am planning to get into it asap! Awesome picks here ^^ I hope you get to all of these this Summer. And that you love them all 🙂
