I was hoping for a Summer TBR topic for one of these Top Ten Tuesday posts, but I guess there won’t be one for this year, or maybe I missed it. Anyway, I’ve decided to ignore this week’s topic (red, white, and blue books for the U.S. Independence Day) and instead show y’all what I might not read this summer!! 😀 …Since I never read what I place on my TBR. (I only read 2 books from my spring TBR.)
Summer TBR — Comics!
Despite the lack of confidence in myself that I’ll actually read these, I really hope I do!! Some of these are series I’m already invested in and would like to continue.

A contemporary fantasy (<<does that make sense? Can’t recall if I’ve ever seen these two words used together to describe something) comic book series about gods (like Woden and Dionysus) who are incarnated as popular superstars (one looks like Prince and another like Rihanna).
