10 Books On My Summer TBR List

Last week, the Top Ten topic hosted by The Broke and the Bookish was Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List. Well, I missed it (it was a busy week and I'm just starting up here). I figured I'd do my own Summer TBR list and today is a perfect day for it since it's the first day of summer. I'm going to list my 10  books; five newer releases and five not-so-newer releases I hope to read this summer. Click on the book titles for their Goodreads links.

Newer Releases:

Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore. 

I've been salivating over this one for a while. Goodreads says: Cabaret meets Cassandra Clare-a haunting magical thriller set in a riveting 1930s-esque world. SO, a historical fantasy with zombies, magic and romance? I'm in!

Don't You Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn.

The overview on the Books-A-Million (BAM) website says: Stephen King meets Tuck Everlasting in this eerie, compulsively page-turning tale of a girl haunted by the loss of her sister--and trapped by the mysterious power that fuels her small town. Ohhhh...Sounds creepy good!

The Dark World by Cara Lynn Shultz.

There are ghosts, demons, warlocks, and even an alternate version of our world? HEY, those are some of my favorite things! Sign me up!

The Girl Who Never Was by Skylar Dorset.

"Romantic, suspenseful, and witty all at once—Alice in Wonderland meets Neverwhere."—Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling author of the Evernight series.  Um, ok...I'm sold! I trust Claudia Gray. Plus, that pretty!

Blonde Ops by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman

Representing TEAM HUMAN this summer is a book about an international fashionista turned spy. Perfect for summer! 

Not So Newer Releases:

1) The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
2) Black City by Elizabeth Richards
3) Icons by Margaret Stohl
4) Unbreakable by Kami Garcia
5) Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike

All I have been meaning to read for a while. Now is the time!

Of course, there are at least 50 other books I want to read this summer (high hopes, I know). There are so many wonderful, beautiful books out there just waiting for someone to love them! Happy reading and happy summer!
