Top Ten Tuesday: On the Summer TBR List

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

By my count, this is the first time that I've participated in Top Ten Tuesday but this seemed like the perfect topic for me. So a little while ago, I made an announcement that for all of August, I'm going to work on getting some of those books off of my ever growing TBR list. These books on this list have been taunting me for awhile now. In no particular order, here are my top books on my summer TBR:

1. Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray (I've met Ms. Dray and have yet to read her books. That's sad!)

2. Song of the Nile by Stephanie Dray

3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (Yeah, I haven't read this one, for serious)

4. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

5. The Pink Carnation Series by Lauren Willig (I got many of the books in this series when Borders was closing)

6. The Rome Series by Kate Quinn (Again, I've had the opportunity to meet the lovely Ms. Quinn and I have not read any of her books. Bad, reader, bad!)

7. The Paris Wife by Paula McClain (I read A Moveable Feast and Paris Without End this year already. I need to read this one).

8. The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry

9. Arranged by Catherine McKenzie

10. Anglo-mania: With Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first wedding anniversary this past April, the Diamond Jubilee a couple weeks ago and the London Olympics coming up this summer, my Anglophilia has been at manic levels. I have tons of Anglo affiliated books on my shelves that I would love to get to.

What do you want to read this summer?


  1. All the book covers look really pretty!! Hope you enjoy them when you get to them.

  2. Oh, you're in for a real treat with Anna and the French Kiss! That's an awesome book to read in summer, too: so light, fun and airy. I adored it and desperately want to see Paris now! (As if I need another reason.) Lots of other great reads here, too. Hope you love 'em!

  3. I like all the covers. They call to me. Nice summer picks.

  4. You have so many good books on your list! I love the Pink Carnation books, they are perfect summer reads!

  5. Such a great list! I have had Mistress of Rome sitting on my shelf for a year and I still haven't got to it yet. I need to get on it!

    1. I've heard really good things about the book so I'm excited to finally get to it!

  6. I loved Anna (and Etienne!) so much and I actually own Lola but haven't started it yet. Same with the Pink Carnation! Enjoy all your summer reads :)

  7. Looooove your list! So glad that you're gonna get to some Stephanie Perkins and the Pink Carnation series - both are perfect for fluffy summertime reading! Also, I am totally planning on reading The Kitchen Daughter for Foodie Feb next year...I'd love to see what you think and make sure it's worth my time!

    1. I'll definitely let you know about The Kitchen Daughter!

  8. Hi Meg,

    I haven't heard of most of those, but I do have Lola, and I hear it is very good. So I must find time to read it:D


  9. That's funny, what struck me about your list was the covers. :) Great list. They all look pretty interesting.
