My Top 10 Summer Reading Suggestions / My Top 10 Books TBR This Summer

I considered making a Tardy Top Ten Tuesday last Wednesday but I never got to it. Though that doesn’t mean I still can’t share my Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List as well as my Top 10 Suggestions for Your Summer Reading List. Now I don’t consider any of my suggestions to be the light and fluffy beach reads that many may think of when they hear the term, “summer read.” I simply don’t read many of those, so I could never form a top ten of that kind. My version of “summer reads” consists of the books you may have never gotten around to during the rest of the year, in some cases, years ago when they first came out. So, my suggestions are geared more toward the people who don’t read as much while my TBR list is more for those who are up to date with what’s happening in the book community. An asterisk indicates that the book is a stand alone. Here it is.

My Top 10 Summer Reading Suggestions

1. Pendragon by D.J. MacHale

It’s considered a kids series but I fell in love with these books. I went in blind and encourage you to do the same.

2. Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Lena lives in a world where love is a disease and she has to get the cure before she gets infected. The only problem? She gets infected. Read my review here.

3. I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

The movie doesn’t come close to all the greatness that is in the first book. And the second book in the series is even better.

4. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Unearthly is about a teenage girl who has a purpose to fulfill, like us all…except she’s part angel.

5. Legend by Marie Lu

June must turn her back on the Republic in order to uncover what the government is really up to in this dystopia. And she gets to do it with public enemy number one, Day.

6. Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire

If you love fantasy and series about faes or want to try something new, this is the series for you. Read my review here.

7. I Am Legend by Richard Matheson*

If you liked the movie, you’ll like the book even more. If you didn’t like the movie, you’ll like the book more.

8. Beautiful by Katie Piper (Memoir)

When Katie broke up with her boyfriend of three weeks, he hired a friend to throw acid in her face. This is the story of how a former model found her calling as a spokesperson for the burned, scarred, and disfigured.

9. Escape by Carolyn Jessop (Memoir)

This is the story of one woman’s escape from the FLDS community and her husband, who ran the entire show.

10. Somewhere Inside: One Sister’s Captivity in North Korea and the Other’s Fight to Bring Her Home by Laura Ling* (Memoir)

You saw the headlines. Now get the full story.
