Friends, readers, compatriots – both Allison and I are participating in today’s Top Ten Tuesday so rather than a super image heavy LONG post we decided to do separate posts. This week’s topic is one of my favorite Top Ten Tuesdays, where we get to choose what books are on our seasonal TBRs. I always like to go back and see how I did the previous season. Y’all I did great for spring. I have read 6 out of the 10 books I picked. Let’s hope the summer TBR yields a count of 10 out of 10 read. FYI Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke And Bookish and was created by The Perpetual Page Turner.
So what’s on my list?
1. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Why?: This is kind of cheating, but My Life Next Door is going to be my next read without a doubt after For Darkness Shows The Stars because I have heard nothing but great things about this debut and I am all about crazy families and romance.
2. Defiance by CJ Redwine
Why?: Yo, the girl on the cover is all look at me I have a cape and I am a bad ass. Also the back cover says it is for fans of Tamora Pierce and Kristin Cashore. Sign me up, bro.
3. Insignia by SJ Kincaid
Why?: That cover is SO red and eye catching. PLUS the main character is a gamer and while I am awful at gaming I do enjoy reading about gamers.
4. Swim The Fly by Don Calame
Why?: You guys the plot centers around teenage boys trying to see a girl naked in real life. Hello I am a fan of Judd Apatow movies which this kind of sounds like a little bit. I can’t wait to dive into this book.
5. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
Why?: So, I met Jenny Han at the S&S party during BEA and she is fricken awesome. I feel like a horrible YA fan for not having read the Summer books yet and sigh, I’ve heard a lot about Jeremiah, Conrad and Belly, I want to actually meet them for myself via the books.
6. Throne Of Glass by Sarah Maas
Why?: So, Anna was telling me about this one. This tweet:

After that, how could I resist?
7. Endlessly by Kiersten White
Why?: Hellooooo I loved Paranormalcy and Supernaturally and I am DYING to see how it all plays out in the end.
8. The Crown Of Embers by Rae Carson
Why?: Technically I could toss this on my Fall TBR, but omg you guys. I am a super fan girl for The Girl Of Fire And Thorns, and I legitimately have to make myself hold off on reading The Crown Of Embers until I get a few obligations out of the way first. But when I get those obligations done you better believe I will rip through this sequel.
9. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Why?: Yo, here there be dragons. DRAGONS, y’all. I legitimately can’t resist that noise. I am going to read the hell out of this book and I hope love every minute of it.
10. The Treachery Of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long
Why?: I am a shallow magpie with a love for that cover. SINISTER TREES WHO EAT PEOPLE. Hell freakin yes.
