Top Ten Tuesday #41: 2019 Summer TBR

It’s Top Ten Tuesday on a Friday!! 😀 YEAHIEE!! Shout out to everyone who’s always late to a party!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but is now managed by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic:

Books on My Summer 2019 TBR

For me, a TBR list often becomes a list of books I really want to read and tell myself to read but never actually read. However, I surprised myself with the progress I made on my spring TBR. I managed to read 5/10 books! That’s a cause for celebration! 😀 I hardly ever read that many books from my TBR.

I hope I’ll do the same or better with my summer TBR. Here’s what I might read:

The Lost Years of Merlin by T.A. Barron

I enjoyed Barron’s Merlin books as a kid and would now like to revisit them. I plan to buddy-read this with Millie at Milliebot Reads in August.

Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky

I’ve always been curious about this book and the spiders in it… I think there are spiders in it and I think they’re important…? Anyway, I plan to buddy-read this with Dani at Perspective of a Writer in July.

The Realms of the Gods by Tamora Pierce

I plan to continue my reread of Pierce’s Tortall books with the last book in the Immortals quartet.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

I have the most recent book in this series, so I’d like to finally start it.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

After the hype blasted past, I started to see mixed reviews of this. I’d like to try it and see if I like it.

The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

I’m rereading Riordan’s Greek mythology-inspired novels and I’m just about to wrap up the Percy Jackson ones, so I’ll jump to the Heroes of Olympus ones next.

Autumn by Karl Ove Knausgaard

I started this last year but wasn’t in the mood for it. I’d like to revisit and complete it this year by summer’s end or by beginning of autumn.

The Dead Zone by Stephen King

I’m reading King’s novels in publication order. Since I recently completed The Stand (hated it), this is next. I wanted to just jump to Doctor Sleep, the book that follows The Shining, because someone on here told me it’s worth reading after The Shining, but I think I’ll try Dead Zone first before doing so.

Run for It by Marcelo D’Salete (illus.)

I keep starting this graphic novel but not completing it. I will do so by summer’s end.

Rasputin’s Daughter by Robert Alexander

I read this book when I was a teen and was immediately sucked in and hooked. I wonder if my reading experience with it will be the same now. Rasputin is such a fascinating man because of all the stories surrounding him, especially about his death.

That’s it for my list.
I’ve been checking out other summer TBR lists as I get the chance.
Share yours below. 🙂

  1. I’m so excited for the spiders!! I’m also a little creeped out… but mostly excited. 😉 Also I’m totally interested in hearing about Run For It. That cover caught my eye right away. You find the best graphic novels Zezee! ❤️


  2. Good luck on your summer TBR!

    I read Children of Blood and Bone last year and enjoyed it. I thought it was a unique world and magic system. I am excited for the second book coming out at the end of the year.
