Hey, lovelies! I know that it might be a little late to post this, but my summer break started in July. I have an excuse (or so I hope) for making this post now. I’ve been in many reading slumps this year and I really hope I’ll have a better luck this summer, this list will hopefully motivate me for this task!
If you’ve known me and my blog for a while, you probably know that I’m a mood reader – that’s why this TBR is only going to be tentative. I don’t know if I’ll read anything from this list, but I really hope so! If you’ve read any of the books on this list and loved them, make sure to hype them in the comments, that way I might actually get to them!
Let’s get right into this TBR list!
I’ve heard only great things about it, these days I’ve found through Silvia’s post (btw check it out, it has amazing f/f romance recommendations) that it has a f/f romance, that there is a Latina MC and I know it deals with feminism and lots of issues. I just want to check it out right now.
Also, I love the cover so much *heart eyes*
I absolutely adored Parker’s first book from this series – Act Like It, it has the fake relationship trope and all those books focuses on London Celebrities a.k.a romances between actors and directors and more. I love Parker’s writing and I can’t wait to read more from her.
#4. The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
I’ve heard only great things about this book ever since it came out, though I’ve also heard it has a lot of triggers, so I’m a bit nervous about it. Hopefully, I’ll manage to read it this summer because it has so many five stars rating from people I trust and everyone is raving about it.
AGAIN WITH THE COVER LUST, WHY SO MANY GORGEOUS COVERS ON THIS LIST????
I’m sure Marie is nodding and grinning right now because she’s recommended me Radio Silence a few times and I NEED TO GET TO IT. You might recall that I’ve read and adored I Was Born For This, therefore I’m really excited about reading these other two. Everybody loves them, I can’t wait to join the club.
#7. If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio
This one has been compared to Donna Tartt’s The Secret History, a book that I’m pretty obsessed with. It has crime, mystery, some Shakespeare, I’m really intrigued.
I don’t want to find out more about this book as I try to get into these kind of books without knowing a lot. It keeps the mystery alive and I usually enjoy reading the books even more.
#8. Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
I won this on a giveaway and I’m super excited to read it, I’ll surely read it on August after I come back from the seaside. It’s Viking-inspired, it’s badass and I’ve heard great stuff about it. Also, the hardcover is gorgeous, I love the “breathe fire” writing on the cover.
Tell me down below if you loved it because I’m a bit nervous since it’s quite hyped and I postpone reading hyped books usually (don’t want it to be its case).
#9. The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
I think I chose the books on this list solely on whether they had gorgeous covers or not. There’s no other explanation here. Anyway, this one has been also recommended to me by my friend, Marie, I trust her a lot and this book seems amazing. I love the premise, I’ve heard great things about it, I’m excited!!!
I’ll read it this summer! I have to!
#10. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
I’ve got an ARC for Dance of Thieves and I’ve heard it’s a spin-off of this series, therefore I feel like I should read this first to get a better understanding of the world. But if it doesn’t happen, I’ll probably read the ARC without finishing the series.
It seems interesting, but I’ve also heard mixed things about it, many people say it’s full of cliches, so I’m not sure what to say about it.
#11. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
Actually I already started this one, I’m buddy-reading it with Anna @Reading Peaches and it’s a little emotional monster (besides making me emotional, it also has a monstrous size), but we’re both hopeful we’ll finish it at some point.
The Secret History made me a Donna Tartt worshipper, so it’s not a surprise to anyone that I’m reading this. Also, Aneurin Barnard, light of my soul, is in the adaptation of the book. I MEAN, be serious, how could I not read it?
I like to think that I’m notorious for not sticking to my TBR lists, I even made a tweet about it, dragging myself, so I can keep to this one. Keep your fingers crossed for me, scream at me to read your favourite book off this list, bully me (you have my permission, I won’t take it to heart).
Have you read any of the books I have on my TBR? Would you recommend it to me?
What are some books you want to read this summer?
