Gonna be one of those days- tried working on this post before driving my daughter to school-got half way done and went to save-boom!- I hit publish instead. So if you saw the first post before I deleted it-sorry!!!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & the Bookish. It’s awesome. Every Tuesday, the lovely ladies over there give us book bloggers wonderful and fun topics to create our lists! Check out what others have posted by going over there! http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com
Today’s topic is:
Top Ten @ the Top of My Summer TBR list
Now, this list was going to start with And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Houseini, but as you might know if you read Monday’s post- I walked into the library yesterday and there it was on the No Hold shelf-YEAH!!!
So excited, anyway, here is the modified list-(might sound a lot like last week’s beach read list though)
1. The Last Original Wife by Dorthea Benton Frank
2. Beautiful Day by Elin Hilberbrand
3. Beach Music by Pat Conroy
4. The First Rule of Swimming by Courtney angel Brkic
5. The Other Typist by Susan Rindell
6. Seating Arrangements by MAggie Shipstead
7. The Wishing Tree by Marybeth Whalen
8. The Savage Garden by Mark Mills
AND my annual reread of –
9. The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
( I can count- used up one already!)
What is on your TBR this summer?
Great list 🙂 The Other Typist looks great.
Its summer all year round for me. But if I had to pick books, I would try finished A Dance With Dragons and then do a re-read of HP.
I love that there are so many people deciding to re-read HP this summer! I am too, and sorta-kinda “hosting” a read-along. Maybe I’ll see you there! 🙂
Would love to take part! Looking forward to hearing more about it
And The Mountains Echoed is great. Hope you enjoy it! I wish I had time to re-read the Harry Potter series this summer. It’s been something I’ve been thinking of doing…
My Top Ten
I love your list-great books- I hope you enjoy the Kinsella!
Nice list! I’m really hoping to get to The Other Typist and The First Rule of Swimming myself 🙂
Happy summer reading!
I’m excited to read Beautiful Day, too. Elin Hilderbrand is great for summer. I have the Other Typist on my Kindle, but haven’t gotten to it yet. Great list!
Thanks! Your list looks great- have been hearing so many people want to read the new Gaiman book.
Great list! The First Rule of Swimming is on my TBR pile. Have you read Harry Potter yet? If not, you are in for a treat… if so… a re-read is always awesome.
I have read HP more than once- my kids make fun of me every time they see me reach for it- but it is so enjoyable on each reread that I can’t help myself
The Other Typist and Seating Arrangements are both so, so good. I can highly recommend them. One of the most searched terms to get to my blog is ‘The Other Typist ending’, though I don’t provide any spoilers. I’m excited to see what you think and then we can discuss.
Great- look forward to it!
The Other Typist, The First Rule of Swimming and Seating Arrangements sound interesting!
I’ve had Seating Arrangements since last year and haven’t read it. I actually totally forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder, hopefully I’ll get to read it this summer!
Thanks for visiting my blog!
The Other Typist looks really interesting. Seating Arrangements is a great choice for summer! And you just can’t go wrong re-reading HP… in fact, I should probably do that too. It’s been at least a year!
I also want to read The Other Typist. And Harry Potter is a must this summer. A MUST.
Harry Potter! I’ve been thinking of rereading all of the books this summer.
I love sitting by the pool reading HP- so relaxing!
Harry Potter is on my long TBR list as well, but I think I’ve decided I’ll probably start the series next year and read most all of it in a row because, yes, I haven’t read any of the HP books yet!
I hope you enjoy them! Just started following your blog- it is great-
Great list!! Thanks for stopping by Love.Life.Read earlier! Happy Reading 🙂
All these have some beautiful covers! I really need to Harry Potter at some point. When the craze hit, I wasn’t interested, but now I feel it’s okay to get lost at Hogwarts. Beautiful Day and The Last Original Wife are on my TBR list.
Thanks for stopping by Literary, etc!
Haven’t heard of any of these before, but hope you enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
Enjoy First Rule of Swimming, I enjoyed it. As for The Savage Garden… I absolutely loved it.
The Other Typist… how’s that ending?!
I have the First Rule of Swimming and The Savage Garden to read also. Beautiful covers.
