Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly discussion hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl (and formerly hosted by The Broke and the Bookish). This week, I’m featuring my Summer 2023 TBR! (I missed the original date, but there’s no time like the present!)
Fourth Wing, by Rebecca Yarros — This is the book of the summer, and the hype machine behind it is HUGE. I love dragons in fantasy, and I’m glad I picked up a copy of this when it first came out because those sprayed edges are to die for!!
The Island of Doctor Moreau, by H.G. Wells — I want to read more classics in general, and I want to read this before I read Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s The Daughter of Doctor Moreau. It’s short, so it shouldn’t take too long, and I enjoy what I’ve already read of Wells!
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, by Hank Green — I’ve had this on my shelf for far too long, and in an effort to read and complete series, I added the duology to my TBR shelf!
You’re Not Supposed to Die Tonight, by Kalynn Bayron — I’ve heard this called a callback to pulpy YA horror and that it has an amazing twist, and it sounds like it’ll be fun to read on a hot summer night!
Dead Eleven, by Jimmy Juliano — I didn’t realize until receiving this book from Dutton Books (thank you!!) that this author wrote a lot of creepypasta stories on reddit!! This sounds so interesting because why are people on this island stuck in 1994??
The Dead Romantics, by Ashley Poston — this has been on too many TBRs at this point, and I need to get it read!! Especially now that her second romance just came out!
The Shining, by Stephen King — another one on several TBRs and one on my 23 in 2023 list, but summer feels like the perfect time to read Stephen King for the first time.
Cemetery Boys, by Aiden Thomas — this is one is another one on my 23 in 2023 list, and I wanted to get to it in June, but I’m prioritizing it for this summer!
Nettle & Bone, by T. Kingfisher — this author has become one of my favorite writers that I’ve read recently, and I want to read everything on her backlist. I meant to grab this in hardcover but I never ended up doing it, but I just bought it the other day in paperback and can’t wait to dive in!
Yellowface, by R.F. Kuang — another one of the hyped books of the spring/summer, but I also love me some literary industry fiction/drama, and after reading Babel, I can’t wait to see how Kuang handles modern day fiction!
What’s on your summer TBR?
