Top Ten Tuesday | Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke And The Bookish. Lists galore, I can think of nothing better!

This week's theme is Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR and there were a lot more than 10 books to choose from for this. I have so many books that I want to read during the summer and I know I'm not going to get to all of them, I probably won't even get around to all ten of these, but I can try my best. I am always in the mood to read a lot of Contemporary during the summer months so I have split this list into contemporary books and other genres.

1. Paper Towns by John Green
This is on my TBR for June so I can hopefully get this one read quite soon. I really want to read this one before the movie comes out in August here in the UK. I know very little about it but the trailer for the movie looks really good, so hopefully I will enjoy this one.

2. The Geography Of You And Me by Jennifer E Smith
I read The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E Smith last summer and really enjoyed it so I am in the mood to read some more from her. I have a couple of her books but decided to go with this one as it is, I believe, about the struggles of a long distance relationship, and part of the book takes place in Edinburgh so as a Scot, that interests me.

3. Isla And The Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
This one is a reread for me. I am desperate for some Stephanie Perkins in my life but since we don't seem to be getting anything new from her until next year at the earliest, I shall just have to reread my favourite of her books. I absolutely loved Isla when I read it last year and instantly wanted to read it again so I will definitely be doing that at some point this summer.

4. Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
As soon as this was released last year, everyone was raving about it. I am, as usual, pretty late joining this bandwagon but I am definitely planning to see what the fuss is about this summer. This is about a girls whose best friend, whom she tends to hide behind, leaves without warning but gives her a lists of things she must do during the summer. This sounds like it could be a lot of fun and something very relatable to me.

5. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
I have heard it said that this is the perfect series to read during summer and since I have also heard such great things about Jenny Han's writing, I am looking forward to giving this series a go. I know there's a love triangle in this series, so I'm not sure how I'm going to feel about that but I will give it a go and hopefully I enjoy it.

6. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
I own three Rainbow Rowell books and have yet to read any of them so it is definitely about time I made a start. I wasn't sure which of the three to start with so I decided to read them in publication order which means, according to Goodreads, that Attachments is first. This sounds really interesting to me, about a man whose job is to regulate the company emails and in doing so discovers a conversation between two female colleagues, one of which he starts to develop feelings for. I'm definitely looking forward to this one.

7. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling
It seems to be taking me forever to get through the Harry Potter books considering I read the second book back in February. It's about time I continue with the series so I am planning to get the the third book during the summer. I had actually intended to read all three books last summer but that obviously never happened so we'll see if I can get to this one during this summer.

8. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
I have had this book on my shelf since back in my Twilight days so it really is about time I finally get around to reading it. I don't know why I haven't got to it yet considering it has been on my monthly TBR quite a few times over the past year. I will get round to reading it at some point this year...hopefully.

9. City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare
I must be one of very few people who have not even started this series yet and plenty of my friends are constantly telling me to get reading it. I am slightly intimidated by it, not only because it's a pretty lengthy book, but also because several people have said the first book is not that great compared to the rest in the series. I will give it a try and hopefully I'll get to it this summer.

10. Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout
I have heard such great things about this series so I don't know why I still haven't read it yet. I have never read anything featuring aliens before, which is why this series sounds so interesting to me. It is a little out of my comfort zone but I definitely want to stretch myself a little and try it out. So many people are huge fans of Jennifer L Armentrout and her writing, so there is a bit of pressure to like it, but I am hoping it will be worth the hype.

Have you read any of the books on my Summer TBR list? What are you planning to read this summer?
