Top Ten Tuesday: Summer Reading List


Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, join in the fun by answering the posted prompt.

This week our prompt is the Top Ten Books on Our Summer TBR List. I have to say, I have not thought terribly hard about what I am going to be reading this summer honestly. I used to whenever I was wrapping up a semester of grad school, college, high school and younger but now as an adult, I guess summer is for the most part like any other time of the year for me. The exception being that I get to spend more time with my daughter as we do let her stay up a little later during the summer than during the school year. :)

To me, summer reading is the optimum time for lighthearted reads usually. I think this summer though, I will be looking towards catching up on books I have purchased that I have not read. With that in mind, here is the list I believe I will be reading this summer:


  

1) Dark Triumph by R. L. LaFevers 
2) Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins
3) The Elite by Kiera Cass




4) Courtship and Curses by Marissa Doyle


  

5) Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
I read the first one years ago but never finished the series. So I am looking forward to reading all three of them this summer. 


  

6) Of Poseidon and Of Triton by Anna Banks



7) Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber


  


8) Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan

  

9) Requiem by Lauren Oliver (will probably re-read the first two to remember the finer details)


  

10) Dark Mirror series by M. J. Putney

Speaking of summer reading lists--have you thought about joining the Summer Lovin' Read-a-Thon I am co-hosting coming up the week of July 1st? We have some FABULOUS prizes to give out!! 

I will have to do a follow up post come September to see if I managed to read all of these titles or if I was enticed by something else entirely. What is on your summer TBR list? Do you view summer reading differently than other times of the year?

    1. I have been itching to read it--it may make the journey with me to ALA honestly. I am getting impatient with trying to find the time to snuggle in with it so the train ride to Chicago, may just be the right time. Happy Reading!

  9. You still haven't read The Hunger Games? Whoa. I thought everyone has read at least one of them. :P
    Great list Stephanie, I wonder what you'll think about Requiem. o:

    1. I have actually read the first one--but I need to re-read it as my Teen Lock In this fall is Hunger Games themed. :) Then, I will catch up on the last two as well.

      Hmm...that is very ominous about Requiem. Should I be nervous?

      Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading!

  12. I haven't seen any of the ones you've listed except for The Hunger Games (which I really hope you've read before). I was debating whether or not to read the trilogy again this summer, but decided to wait until November before the movie comes out.

    1. I have read Hunger Games before but not since I bought the books. I am doing a Hunger Games themed lock in this fall at my library so I need to read them again to plan the event--or at least that is the excuse I am using. :-D Happy Reading!

  13. I am just about to finish The Hunger Games Trilogy - I read book one years ago and never got around to reading the rest. I now read book one again and then went on with the series - these books are so GOOD! :)
    Happy reading!

    1. I'm the same--it has been awhile so it will be good to go back through and read the first one again and finish the series in time for the lock in this fall. Happy Reading!

  14. I want to read so many on your list!! I'd love to do a reread of the entire Hunger Games series! :) And I really need to get started on the Heroes of Olympus series, I loved Percy Jackson!
