Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR 2019


This week, That Artsy Reader Girl is asking us for the top ten books on our TBR list for the summer.  I must be honest here:  I'm a mood reader.  I can make TBR lists all day long and into the night and then discard them the minute I finish a current read and look around for my next book.  



So I make no promises about whether or not I'll actually read any of these.  Except one, because my church's book club is discussing that next month, so I simply must read it.

That being said, here are ten books I HOPE to read this summer:

+ The Baronet's Song by George MacDonald (book club book)

+ Captain Newman, MD by Leo Rosten (because I love the movie so much)

+ Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell (I like semi-fluffy period drama in the summer)

+ Grace Alone by Ruth E. Meyer (because there's a sequel coming out and I haven't read this yet)

+ The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (and then someone else can be the last person on earth who hasn't read it)

+ The Lone Star Ranger by Zane Grey (I actually started this a couple days ago, but am only 3 chapters in)

+ Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit by Amy Stewart (hoping I like it more than book 3)

+ Murder on the Moor by Julianna Deering (the last one of this series that I haven't read yet)

+ The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White (so excited to read this one!)

+ Over the Moon by Natalie Lloyd (her books are so cute!)

How many of these will I actually read this summer?  Only time will tell.  Maybe one.  Maybe all ten.  We shall see!

  1. Hunger Games was soo good, especially the first two in the series. I personally didn't think the third one was necessary but it is still a good read.

  3. Yep...I'm guilty. I change my TBRs as quickly as that, too. CANNOT WAIT to see what you think about Hunger Games. And if you want to continue the series. That is....if you end up reading it after all.

    1. Ruth, glad you're a plan-changer too -- makes me feel like I'm in good company!

      And yeah, we'll see. A friend gave me a copy years ago, so I really have no excuse for not reading it.

  4. Cranford is a fun read...and it's short! Which is part of the reason I liked it so much. ;D

    1. Lark, yes! Shortness is an allurement. And I love the BBC series.

  6. I'm the same way, but I LOVE making these lists. It's fun to think about what I MIGHT read, even if I never actually do it :)

    Happy TTT!

    1. Susan, it does sometimes help me focus my reading. But I always laugh when I look back at reading plans because I'll have read like 2 things out of 10, lol.

    1. Thanks, Lauren! Yes, I know, isn't it awesome? I got it from Good Tickle Brain -- she made a whole bunch of Shakespeare GIFs and I love them :-)
