Top Ten on my Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week there's a category and everyone participating lists their "Top Ten" in that category.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List

1. Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown
What's better for a summery read than mermaids? Killer mermaids!

2. Reunited by Hilary Graham
Road trips make for perfect summer books and this one not only has the promise of a fun road trip, but also an interesting ex-best-friends dynamic :]

3. Endlessly by Kiersten White
Paranormalcy and Supernaturally were both super-freaking-fantastically-awesome and I can't wait to see how Kiersten ends the series!

4. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
I've already heard fantastic things, but even before that I was excited since it sounds like a cute contemp. Quite honestly, I think the cover is what draws me in and makes it feel summery :P

5. 52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody
Daughter of a rich-daddy forced to take on a new "crappy" job every week for a year to learn some humility? Yeah, I'm betting there'll be a fair amount of laughs ;]

6. Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff That Made Me Famous by Kathryn Williams
I've said it once and I'll say it again: it's like this book was written for me. Before I no longer had cable, Food Network was on basically 24/7. I love food and tv shows about food. And then Williams here decided to write a book with two of my favorite things AND teens and romance. I seriously cannot wait for this book!

7. The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life by Tara Altebrando
Am I the only one who feels like scavenger hunts just scream summer? ....Yes? Well, fine then :P

8. Monument 14 to Emmy Laybourne
Okay, so maybe it's not some light, summery read, but I need my dose of dystopian/apocalyptic fiction. It fuels my reading fire :P

9. This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers
Once again, I know this isn't exactly a feel-good summer book, but ever since I learned the publish date was sometime in June I've been thinking of it as a summer book. Yes, I know I'm strange.

10. Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Look, more mermaids! Is there really anything better than mermaids to get into the summer mood?

Bonus! An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Since reading Looking for Alaska last month I've decided to slowly work my way chronologically through JG's book and Katherines is next up :]


  1. I've been wanting to read Of Poseidon for a while. I absolutely love mermaid books!

  2. I'm seeing This Is Not A Test everywhere. It looks great. Enjoy!

  3. All of these books sound so great! I REALLY WANT TO READ REUNITED. It looks so amazingly adorable. <3 Great list, Jasmine!


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
