Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish featuring a different book-related topic each week. This week:

Top 10 Books On My Summer Winter Reading List

Once again I have to reverse this as it’s winter here in Australia and getting pretty chilly! Still, there will be some summery books on my list…I can dream, can’t I?!

  1. Second Chance Summer, by Morgan Matson. This just arrived last week and I can’t wait to read it! I really loved Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, Matson’s first novel and this one is surprisingly thick. I am super excited to pick a perfect day and sit down and hopefully read it in one sitting!
  2. Two Weeks’ Notice, by Rachel Caine. The second in the Revivalist series. I read the first novel, Working Stiff, and absolutely loved it. I’ve been hanging out for the second novel ever since – very interested to find out what is next for Bryn. I have a copy of this one but I’m saving it until I go on holiday in July.
  3. Pushing The Limits, by Katie McGarry. Marg recommended this one to me a little while ago and since then it’s been popping up everywhere on my radar. I know a few people who have read this and loved it and one person who read it and didn’t love it quite so much. I’m pretty interested to give it a go and see what I think.
  4. Something Like Normal, by Trish Doller. I’ve been wanting to read this for ages now! I first heard about it so long ago, on a blog the author contributes to. My Goodreads says it marked it as TBR on the 26th November 2010! So there we go – quite a long time! Hopefully I’ll be receiving it in the next month or so!
  5. I’ve Got Your Number, by Sophie Kinsella. I love Sophie Kinsella but I haven’t read her latest release yet! I have a copy arriving soon though so I’m really looking forward to it. I haven’t read all of her stand alone novels but I have liked most of the ones I have read so I’m thinking this one should be fun.
  6. Onyx, by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I read Obsidian just recently and loved it so I’m looking forward to this one, the next in the series. Interested to see what’s next for Kat and Daemon after the way in which Obsidian ended.
  7. Spark, by Brigid Kemmerer. The second in the Elementals series, and I’m so keen for this! I actually have a copy thanks to the publisher and NetGalley but I’m being good and holding off a bit until much closer to the release date! Mostly because that way the wait between 2 and 3 will not be as long!
  8. Gold, by Chris Cleave. I’ve read Cleave’s previous novels and although I’ve had some issues, predominantly with both their endings, I really love the stories he tells and the way he writes. I’ve been hearing amazing things about this one so I’m really interested to pick this up and get into it.
  9. The Masque Of The Red Death, by Bethany Griffin. I haven’t ordered this yet but I plan to – love the cover, love the idea. I’ve heard some mixed reviews but mostly good rather than bad so I’m pretty interested to see how I find this.
  10. The Inn At Rose Harbour, by Debbie Macomber. I have a bit of a soft spot for her books – I’ve read a lot of them over the years and they totally changed my perception that books revolving around a knitting shop can’t be interesting. I enjoy her characters and yes, they’re a bit soppy and overly sweet at times but sometimes they’re just what I need.

Interesting to see if after the winter season, I’ve actually read any of these! I make lists all the time of books that I want to read soon or think would be perfect for a certain time of the year and half the time I get distracted by other books and end up reading very few or maybe even none! I’ll have to revisit this list in 3 months time to see how I went.

    I love Sophie Kinsella too! I still have to read I’ve Got Your Number as well.. and Second Chance Summer sounds good… I might have to add that to my to-read list 🙂

    Here’s Mine

    ooh so many good ones!


  3. Anne says:

    I loved Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, too, so I can’t believe that I didn’t know that Matsons second book is already out. I am adding it to my list! Thanks.

    Oh, Debbie Macomber! You said it perfectly about her books. I got started reading her with her Christmas stories, which have now come to be the defining factor of the holiday season for me. I haven’t ventured into her Blossom Street series yet, but she’s just the sort of simple, charming read we all need once in a while. And she’s such a magical lady herself – to know her fight with dyslexia didn’t stop her from becoming such a widely-loved author just makes me cheer her on all the more.

  5. Second Chance Summer is on my list too, I hear some great things about it! (Though apparently tissues will be required to mop up the tears!) And I hope you get to read Something Like Normal soon, I just reviewed it and it was one of the best YA books I’ve ever read. Such a brilliant book.

    I agree about Debbie Macomber – I read all her Christmas books every holiday and have read a few of her regular books, and even though sometimes it’s a bit soft, cheesy, sappy…sometimes it’s also perfect.

    Great list, and happy reading 🙂

  14. Awesome list! I’m not familiar with some of the books but they sound interesting so I’ll have to check them out on GoodReads 😉

    Here’s my TTT for this week =)

  15. Elodie says:

    I need to add SOMETHING LIKE NORMAL to my TBR…I´ve been meaning to so thanks for the reminder 😀
    I loved loved loved SECOND CHANCE SUMMER; would love to hear your thoughts on it when you´re done with it!
    Great list!

  16. Vyki says:

    I have Pushing the Limits and Masque of the Red Death on mine as well! Great list, here’s mine:

  17. Booksmartie says:

    Haven’t put Pushing the Limits on my list, but I’m definitely going to try to read it, too – heard amazing things!
    If you want to see my TTT you can find it here:

  18. Debbie Macomber sounds real familiar to me. I’m sure that I have read some of her books a long time ago. May it was some of her Harlequin Romance books way back when I use to read them. The Masque Of The Red Death sounds real interesting more like what I like to read now. I have added it my TBR list.

    My Top Ten
