Top Ten Tuesday: Books At The Top Of My Summer TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish and this week's list is books top of your summer to-read list. There's so many books I want/need to read this summer (if summer ever arrives...) but here are the essentials! Links go to Goodreads so you can add them to your summer TBR if you wish ;)


1 & 2. Paper Aeroplanes by Dawn O' Porter & Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Okay so these two are at the top because Wein and O'Porter are the only two confirmed authors for Leakycon London which takes place in August. I'm going to be there so I need to read these books! And I'm actually really excited about them both because I've heard amazing things about Code Name Verity and Paper Aeroplanes looks really intriguing.

3. All the Truth That's In Me by Julie Berry

This comes out in August in the UK and I had the chance to request a proof copy to review. It sounds like one to watch and I was completely hooked by the plot summary: Four years ago, Judith and her best friend disappeared from their small town of Roswell Station. Two years ago, only Judith returned, permanently mutilated, reviled and ignored by those who were once her friends and family. Unable to speak, Judith lives like a ghost in her own home, silently pouring out her thoughts to the boy who’s owned her heart as long as she can remember—even if he doesn’t know it—her childhood friend, Lucas.

4. House of Secrets by Chris Columbus and Ned Vizzini
 I won this in a giveaway and I was already buzzing about it before the release, but it's still sitting unread on my bedside table - oopsie! Must get round to it this summer because it looks like good fun.

5. The Wolfstone Curse by Justin Richards
Saw this in a publisher's catalogue and my library already had it available to request, even though it's not out until July, so I'll be getting my hands on it in time for summer reading. Sounds like a great action adventure with a bit of archaeology and werewolves thrown in for good measure.

6. Summer Unplugged by Amy Sparling
 It has summer in the title so I must read it! I got this for free on my Kindle ages ago and I've been saving it for the summer. The main character ends up having to live without technology which sounds like a great story and something I could never do.

7. Camp Kiss by J. K. Rock
 This is a prequel novella to Camp Boyfriend which was available for free. It sounds really sweet and summer camp - woo!

Again, another summer themed novel I've been saving. Heard good things about this trilogy.

9. Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
 I bought this ages ago and it's still on my Kindle, but I'm aiming to read it as part of the NA readathon in July. I've heard so many good things about this book and this author so I can't wait to get stuck in.
10. Freshman Forty by Christine Duval
Another book I'm saving for the NA readathon. It's about a girl who discovers she's pregnant a few weeks into her college course which sounds like a great premise. It definitely sounds like something that is perfect to address in an NA novel.

Which books are top of your summer TBR? Let me know in the comments and if you have your own top ten post then link me up and I'll check it out!



  1. Hopeless almost made it in my summer TBR but I could only fit 10 and it needed to get left out but I still really want to read it. Lovely picks this week Sarah.

    Here's my TTT if you want check it out :-)

    1. I know, it was so hard to pick 10 because I have SO many books to read right now >< I hope you enjoy Hopeless whenever you get round to it! :) Thanks so much for your comment :D

  2. I have Code Name Verity waiting to be read so I'll have to get around to that soon. I enjoyed Paper Aeroplanes so I hope you do too.
    Hope you get around to lots of them soon! :)

    1. Yay, I can't wait to see what you think of Code Name Verity :) I hope I get round to it soon! Thanks so much for commenting as always Lucy :)

  3. A bunch of these sound really good and I'll have to look into the ones I haven't heard of yet. I have heard good things about The Summer I Turned Pretty and I really want to read All the Truth That's in Me. Great list! My TTT.

    1. I hope you get round to reading them too! Thanks so much for your comment :D

  4. Ok, just drop EVERYTHING and read Code Name Verity!! I can't say everything will be all right after, but it is just so heartbreakingly good!
    Oh, and the Summer I Turned Pretty is a very cute read :)

    1. I might have to take this advice! :D I still haven't decided whether to buy a copy or get it from the library. I might cave and buy it because everyone has such good things to say :D I'll go in prepared! Thanks so much for your comment :D

  5. Great Top 10! I loved House Of Secrets when I read it and I can't wait to get started on my All The Truth That's In Me proof! I've heard lots of good things about Paper Aeroplanes so might have to get a copy.

    My Top 10 Tuesday!

    1. Ahh I'm glad you liked House of Secrets! I've heard mixed things but I think it looks like my kind of book :) thanks so much for your comment :D
