Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List

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

This week's topic is:  Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR List

Oh my goodness!  There are so many books on my summer TBR list.  It's a little out of control!  Here are a few that I hope to get through this summer.

1.) The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead-I am so ready to find out what's going on with the Vampire Academy gang!
2.) Insurgent by Veronica Roth-I didn't love Divergent but I am still very curious as to what will happen in this book.
3.) City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare-I can't quit this series even though the last book was pretty meh.
4.) Frankenstein by Mary Shelley-I definitely want to read some classics this summer and for some reason I have never read this.
5.) The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy-Another classic to read this summer.
6.) Ada or Ardor by Vladimir Nabokov-I have put off reading this for far too long.  It is like a nagging thorn in my side so I am going to finish it this summer.
7.) The Death of Ivan Ilyich and other stories by Lev Tolstoy-I love Tolstoy and this has been on my shelf for a while. 
8.) A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin-Why have I still not read this????
9.) Twilight in Russian-I really need to practice my Russian language skills.  I am hoping to take a class in the Fall and this should help me prepare a bit.
10.) The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett-I am not sure if I will get to this one.  I have a lot of other books to read this summer and it may be ambitious of me to think I will get to this one.

That's a portion of my summer reading list.  What do you really want to read this summer?  Are there any new releases you are excited about?


  1. The Pillars Of The Earth is actually a quick read, like once you start it you won't want to set it down.

    ALSO Game Of Thrones, that book is legit and fantastic.

    AND OOOO The Golden Lily! I loved that book!

  2. I liked Insurgent but I loved Divergent. Great list! Hope you read them all.

  3. Love your list. Several on my main reading list. Should be a great summer.

  4. I forgot to put "Pillars of the Earth" on my list and I just picked it up from the library so I'll have to get to that one. You have a few I need to add to my list :)

  5. I love that you included a classic on your list! When you're done Frankenstein you should read Kenneth Oppel's This Dark Endeavor if you haven't already--it's Dr. Frankenstein as a teenager and it is fabulous!

  6. Frankenstein! I'm actually reading that one right now, it's required for my AP class next year. I can't wait to see what you think of it. (:

  7. Insurgent is one I want to read as well - and I loved The Millennium trilogy. Hope you get to all these books plus enjoy them all :-)

  8. I think it's so cool you are going to read Twilight in Russian!
