Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR
As always, hosted at The Broke and the Bookish
So, the topic today is Top Ten Books on my Summer TBR list. I don't know how this is very different from two weeks ago: Top Ten Books in my Beach Bag. So this list will just be added to that one, and trust me, I have a TON of books I plan to read this summer!
1. The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak
2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
3. Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
4. Johnathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke. So I just recently was glancing through my TBR and I saw this title. I don't remember putting it on there, and I don't remember who recommended it (it was probably Samantha, though... a good bunch of my TBR are her recs!). Hm.....
5. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. Because I have just got to get onto the Maggie Steifvater train with everyone! I already am in love with her and I've only read some of her tumblr posts.... :-P
6. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. See #5. :-)
7. O Pioneers! by Willa Cather. Classics Club!
8. The Inimitable Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse. Yes, I know I have Very Good, Jeeves! and that the Jeeves stories can be read in any order, but I read Wodehouse's prologue to VGJ, and he made such a convincing case for reading the first two.... and I'm such a stickler for doing things in proper order. Especially when the author requests. So VGJ will have to wait until I read The Inimitable Jeeves and Carry On, Jeeves!
9. 1984 by George Orwell. Another Classics Club book.
10. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. A reread from the Classics Club.
And those ten are added to my last ten (the beach bag ones). I've got myself a pile of summer reading to do!
What are you looking forward to reading this summer?
