Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books on My Summer TBR List

toptentuesdayThis summer, YOU picked my summer reads! Well, sort of. Recently, I listed a bunch of choices and here’s what readers recommended most. A few books (Caleb’s Crossing, We Are Not Ourselves) received both a positive and a negative reaction so those canceled each other out.

And thanks to those who recommended The Interestings, I really enjoyed it (although the main character drove me a little crazy).

On my summer TBR:

  1. House of Mirth by Edith Whartonsummer reads
  2. How to Be Both by Ali Smith
  3. Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
  4. Time and Again by Jack Finney
  5. Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver
  6. Us by David Nicholls
  7. Redeployment by Phil Klay
  8. The Wind-Up Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
  9. The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer
  10. You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day

By the way, I read 6 of the books on my spring TBR list, which isn’t too bad – I decided not to finish Yes Please, it just didn’t grab me.

What books have you read on this list? And what’s on your summer TBR list?

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

    Oh my goodness, what a great list. If you don’t enjoy 2, 3, and 7, I shall eat my proverbial hat.

    I’ve read 2,3 and 5. All great but Flight Behaviour is not up to the standard of Poisonwood Bible or the Lacuna if you’ve read those by Kingsolver

    I don’t have a summer reading list mainly because i am trying to stop myself planning my reading. I found I was getting strung up on how far behind I was rather than enjoying just picking randomly. I’ve read 2 and 3 from your list and thought them both wonderful. Hope you feel the same

    I loved House of Mirth! I haven’t read any of the others but definitely have several on my longer TBR.

    YAY THE GRAND SOPHY! It’s my favorite Georgette Heyer! 🙂 I also vaguely remember liking Time and Again, although I read it several years ago.
