Top Ten Tuesday - Books At The Top Of My Summer TBR List

It's been a while since I've done a Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, as I've been on holiday (which was amazing) and since getting back have been getting back into the swing of real life.

This week's topic, appropriately enough, is:

Top Ten Books At The Top Of My Summer TBR List

I'm going to go with the books I've got lined up to read next on my Kindle, so this could be a bit of a random mixture.

  • Suddenly Royal by Nicole Chase. This looks like the perfect summer read. Like The Princess Diaries but for grown-ups!
  • Flat Out Love by Jessica Park. A straight-forward love story to wile away these long summer (possibly not summery) days.
  • Pharmacology by Christopher Herz. While this may sound like a text book, the book description assures me it's not. I kind of had to get this seeing as I studied Pharmacology at university. It looks like an interesting story set against the backdrop of the drugs industry.
  • The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare. The sequel to City of Bones, which I have just reviewed. This also includes all the other sequels in this series. I like to complete series, although I did enjoy the first one anyway.
  • The Horologicon by Mark Forsyth. A companion to The Etymologicon, which I have high hopes for. This feeds my lust for language.
  • Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick. After all the Oscar excitement for the film, I'm intrigued to see what all the fuss is about.
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Technically I'm reading it now, but I consider it right at the top of the TBR list... I've heard a lot of good things about the book, so I want to see if it'll live up to its own hype.
  • A Storm of Swords by George RR Martin. I'm making my way through the A Song of Ice and Fire, and I've just finished A Clash of Kings, so onwards and upwards!
  • Struck by Lightning by Chris Colfer. Well, this is waiting to be read as soon as I've finally get to see the film... So hopefully before the end of the summer.
  • Les Mis√©rables by Victor Hugo. Still reading this, and I imagine I'll still be reading it by the end of the summer!
