10 Books On My TBR For Summer 2015 | Top Ten Tuesday


This summer I'm going for popular books. Let's see if I actually get any of these read. Probably not.

Viking Cover 2009
10. Wintergirls - Laurie Halse Anderson
I've only heard great things about this. I know it's not a very light read so I keep putting off actually trying it out.

9. Uglies - Scott Westerfeld
Everyone read this back when Sarah Dessen books were super popular. I didn't get the memo and I've been thinking about giving this a chance now. I really like the idea, superficiality is never addressed in YA novels.

8. These Broken Stars - Amy Kaufman & Megan Spooner
Sci-Fi novels and I - the eternal struggle. I'm still trying to really get into them, usually I don't go further than time travel books. I'm not so much for outer space adventures, but the beautiful cover and great reviews intrigue me.

7. The Leveller - Julia Durango
I only recently found out about this one and I can't wait to get my hands on this. It's about a virutal reality and reminds me a little of Under the Never Sky.

6. Last Sacrifice - Richelle Mead
I've read all five books plus the extra short story Homecoming. I think it's time to finally take plunge. I love the world of Vampire Academy but I wasn't really satisfied with how the story progressed and Spirit Bound ended. I can't just not read the last novel, can I?

5. Cinder - Marissa Meyer
I love fairy tales and fairy tale retellings. Reading this novel is part of the process of trying to force myself to read more space-related books. Also everyone loves this and it's a series, so why not?
Disney Hyperion Cover 2014

4. Legend - Marie Lu
I have no clue what it's about and I really don't want to find out. I just want to go in blind and see why everyone is so utterly obsessed with this.

3. Dorothy Must Die - Danielle Paige
I had no idea that this isn't just your average asylum / haunted house creepy novel, but it's Wizard of Oz fan fiction! I had no idea it was about THAT Dorothy. I need to read this.

2. Carmilla - Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
If you haven't checked out the web series by VerveGirlTV on Youtube you're definitely missing out. I'm absolutely in love with the series and obviously I have to read the original novel as well.

1. Alienated - Melissa Landers
Alien exchange student. I'm hooked. I've been saying for MONTHS that I'm going to read it but I never do.



What are you planning to read this summer? Have you read any of these?
