Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Summer TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR List

1. Magic Breaks (Kate Daniels #7) by Ilona Andrews
July 29, 2014

My favorite writing duo is bringing us a new Kate novel! I just can't get enough of Kate and Curran. Also, Renée Raudman brings this story to life through her narration. I can't read "Why me?" in any book without hearing it in Raudman's voice and inflection. If you like urban fantasy and haven't started this series, you need to immediately stop whatever you're reading and start this series.

2. The Kraken King Part II: The Kraken King and the Abominable Worm (Iron Seas #4.2) by Meljean Brook

I quickly devoured the first three in this series, along with a few novellas not too long ago. I'm attempting to be patient and read through the serials of book 4. My library has all of them but I am on the hold list for the second part. I really don't see myself holding out without just giving up and buying the rest of them. Which just confirms that I am too impatient for serials.

3. Shattered (The Iron Druid Chronicles #7) by Kevin Hearne
June 17, 2014

This releases today! We get more Atticus and Oberon!

4. Boneseeker by Brynn Chapman
June 17, 2014

This also releases today! I pre-ordered it and I'm really looking forward to getting into the story. A little mystery mixed with historical fiction and paranormal romance sounds perfect.

5. The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #1) by Erika Johansen
July 8, 2014

Kayla has already read this and really liked it, so I jumped on the chance when she kindly offered her ARC for me to read. You can read her review HERE. There's a whole lot of hype surrounding this, and it's apparently already been optioned for a movie with Emma Watson starring. Hopefully it's as good as promised.

6. The Suffragette Scandal (Brothers Sinister #4) by Courtney Milan
July 15, 2014

Courtney Milan always delivers great, well-written historical romances. I can't wait to read her ending to this series, even though I'm going to be sad to see it end.

7. The Book of Life (All Souls Trilogy #3) by Deborah Harkness
July 15, 2014

The conclusion to this series has been two years in the making. This is an ambitious mix of historical fiction and paranormal romance, but it has so far delivered. I can't wait to see how it ends!

8. The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton

This is a complete case of cover lust. I had already checked this out from the library by the time of writing this post, but still didn't really know what it was about. I've seen some very polarized reviews which always make me want to read something even more.

9. Silver Shadows (Bloodlines #5) by Richelle Mead
July 29, 2014

The Fiery Heart ended on SUCH a cliffhanger! Mead is so cruel. I feel like this is just going to be a very dramatic, emotional read.

10. Sisters' Fate (The Cahill Witch Chronicles) by Jessica Spotswood
August 14, 2014

I can't wait to see how this trilogy ends, especially considering that awful cliffhanger ending for book 2.

What Books Are on Your Summer TBR List?


  1. Magic Breaks is my most anticipated book of the summer! I also have The Suffragette Scandal on my list. Courtney Milan is one of my favorite authors. You have other books on your list I would also list except I'm not caught up yet (Deborah Harkness' second book--should have been on my list)! Great list, Amber!

    1. Me too! I'm so excited that Magic Breaks is almost here! Plus, we get another Andrews series beginning in the fall. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great list! I'm looking forward to reading The Book of Life as well, though I'll likely be waiting for it in paperback to match my other books xD

    Happy reading! My TTT

    1. If you just can't wait for the paperback, you should check out the audiobook. The audio versions of the first two have been really good. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. The Silver Shadows is also on my list! That was a dramatic cliffhanger in Fiery Heart but I kinda predicted it earlier. I've actually predicted a lot in this series but it doesn't lessen my enjoyment or the emotions, one bit. Can't wait to see what happens next!
    Here's my TT

    1. It was predictable, but I still get annoyed even if I know going into a book that there is going to be a cliffhanger. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I'm looking forward to Magic Breaks, and Silver Shadows as well. I just couldn't fit them in my top ten list :) But I do have them on my TBR.

    Have a good week,

    My Top Ten Tuesday
