Top Ten Tuesday #15

Hosted by the Broke and the Bookish as usual :D
Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List :D

Really? You want me to condense my huge list for the summer? Is that even possible? Well I guess I can try. I'm not as fast as a reader as others, but here are the books I'm most looking forward to reading in the next couple of months!

must read sequels

Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson - Because I just finished the Way of Kings, and was completely blown away by all the reveals. Now I just want to see what happens next to Kaladin, Dalinar, and Shallan! (I actually desperately want a video game or an anime based on The Stormlight Archives!)

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo - I really need to know what happens with Alina and Mal. AND THE DARKLING! I am desperately praying that nothing bad happens to the pair. But of course everything always goes wrong because authors.

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer - I know. I haven't finished the Lunar Chronicles yet. I'M SORRY. I'm trying to savor this series like I savor my cinnamon buns! I plan on rereading the whole series anyways once Winter comes out.

everything else I have to read

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas - I have heard so many good things about this series and yet I still haven't picked it up yet. But I assure you, my next Amazon checkout cart will have this in there!

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi - So yes it is on my bookshelf. Have I gotten to it? NOPE. Why not? Because I'm a sad poop. I've heard it's not as good as its sequels, but I still want to try it out.

Eon by Alison Goodman - Heard about this one through the many blogs I stalk, and look at that gorgeous cover. And also, fun fact, here's the chinese symbol up close: 
traditional or simplified 
pinyin: lóng 
meaning: dragon (no surprise there hahahaa) 

Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson - Along with hearing good things about this series, I plan to read everything by him. Also, a bookseller at B&N pointed out the new covers to me, but I'm not a fan.

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein - The companion story to Code Name Verity, which made me burst into tears. I just love stories about WWII and friendship and shedding tears of agony and sorrow and pain.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - This has been on my radar for quite some time now. I'm pretty sure it's $6 on Amazon, so that will definitely be bought soon.

That's all on my TBR list for the summer, if I get to it. How about you? Link up below!


  1. Anna And The French Kiss is such a sweet read. I think it's a perfect summer read. I've recently read Siege and Storm and absolutely loved it. I can't wait for Ruin and Rising.

  2. I quite like the new Mistborn covers, mostly because I love anything purple. Awesome books though - I hope you enjoy them! I can't wait to read Rose Under Fire too.

  3. FEELS for so many books on your list!!!! Siege and Storm, Scarlet, Throne of Glass, Shatter Me, Eon, Rose Under Fire, Anna and the French Kiss... I've read some of them (AND LOVED THEM), and the rest have been in my radar for a long time!! Hope you'll enjoy reading this summer. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Throne of Glass. Like. HIGHLY ;)

    Alicia @ Summer Next Top Story

    1. Thanks Alicia! I'll definitely read/obtain Throne of Glass soon! It's definitely one of my top priorities this summer (along with a ton of other books)

  4. I'll be reading Siege and Storm as well, although I forgot to add it to my list. Shadow and Bone was okay, so I read her novella The Witch of Duva and it absolutely blew me away and I decided to keep going with the series. I will also be reading Cress. Scarlet was okay, I just like the overall Lunar story... and Wolf was great... I just wish I had waited until the whole series was out so I could binge-read them! I have forgotten pretty much everything already.

    Also, Brandon Sanderson! I read the first few chapters of Mistborn from the library, but I didn't get a chance to read the rest before it was due. It was definitely intriguing. It's definitely going to be one of those that you are completely engrossed with!

    1. I absolutely can't wait to get my hands on Mistborn woooo. I also heard a lot of his other books are really good, so I'm not going to stop there. I haven't read The Witch of Duva yet, but I'll be sure to find it somewhere! And I also heard that Cress was better than Scarlet, but I can't just skip a book in a series can I?

  5. i actually really enjoyed Shatter Me though I have also heard that the others are better I just haven't gotten to the others yet! Anna and the French Kiss is awesome and so is Throne Of Glass. I didn't really like Eon but I read it a long time ago, like before I knew something like goodreads existed and I honestly don't remember why I didn't like it so I might have to give it a second chance. =)

  6. Scarlet is on my list, too, and I definitely need to check out Throne of Glass sometimes soon!
    My TTT:

  7. OMG, why have I not heard of Eon before? WHY IS THERE AN EON-SHAPED HOLE IN MY GOODREADS?!! *dashes off to fix that immediately*

    I'm too scared to attempt Rose Under Fire to be honest. *sniffs* I will never ever ever recover from Code Name Verity and I'm supposed to submit myself to the torture AGAIN? Can't. (But who are we kidding? I'm such a sucker. I'll read it eventually.)

    1. I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU HAVEN'T READ IT. I'm only picking it up because it's related to Chinese culture and I wanted to see what the author does with it.

      And Rose Under Fire? I just put a hold on it at the library. There's no turning back now.

  8. Please read Throne of Glass ASAP - I LOVE this series and the 3rd book comes out in September!

    Happy Reading!

  9. I didn’t like Shatter Me that much, but at least it was a quick read, and the sequels are great!
    I also want to read at least one book by Brandon Sanderson this summer. You’re probably the first person I’ve come across who does not like the new covers of his books!

    1. Haha sorry about that! It's just I really like how there's so much going on in the original covers. Plus I'm a sucker for hand drawn covers like this one.

  10. Anna and the French Kiss is AMAZING!

    Great list! Here's my TTT

  11. Mistborn is something I definitely want to read sometime, but probably won't this summer. You need to read Scarlet so you can read CRESS!!!! Sorry, I just adore Cress so much. :)

  12. I definitely need to read a lot of these! I've only read Shatter Me, and it was decent, but the next two books were AMAZING, so Shatter Me is worth it! And I haven't heard of Eon, but the cover is amazing, off to check it out! Hope you get to read these and you enjoy them :)

  13. I really need to read Eon, I've had that on my wishlist ever since it's release and I have recently finally bought it, it nearly went into my backup summer TBR list but just missed out, on thinking about it it should really be on the main list as I've waited a long time to read it!

  14. Val! These are awesome picks! As you know I need to get through cinder first but Siege & Storm so should have made my list too! And I still need to read Throne Of Glass too!!!! Thanks for dropping by on my blog, I always look forward to your comments! :D
