Well it’s been a while but I’m back with another Top 10 Tuesday, hosted by the girls over at The Broke & the Bookish. This week we’re talking….
Top 10 Books On My
Summer Winter Reading List
- Hard Choices, by Hilary Rodham Clinton. I’m not American (obviously, as it’s winter here) but I admire Hilary Rodham Clinton. I think she’s a very intelligent and very classy lady. I’m really interested to see what she has to say about her time as Secretary of State. I’m excited to read this.
- Rusty Nailed, by Alice Clayton. I really loved Wallbanger and I can’t wait to see what is next for Simon & Caroline.
- The Girl In 6E, by Alessandre Torre. I got this off NetGalley from the Australian publisher a little while back and I’ve just been waiting until it’s closer to the release date to read it. It sounds so good and I have to admit, I’m a sucker for those stories where people never leave their houses/apartments. I don’t know why. Maybe because on some level, I could see myself being one of those people, just reading books and communicating solely online….
- Silver Shadows, by Richelle Mead. Number 5 in the Bloodlines series and after the way The Fiery Heart ended, who doesn’t want this next volume?
- Isla And The Happily Ever After, by Stephanie Perkins. I feel as though this book has been absolutely years in coming…but given how much I love the writing of Stephanie Perkins, I’m sure it’ll be well worth it!
- A Dance With Dragons, by George R.R. Martin. I’m kind of cheating here with this one as I’m actually halfway through it already. I ripped through the first four books but I’m taking this one much slower because I don’t know when the next one is going to be out! It’ll probably be so long that I’ll have forgotten most of what happened anyway.
- #scandal, by Sarah Ockler. I’m really interested in books that deal with social media at the moment, and how things can go wrong and how there can be very little in the way of privacy these days. This one caught my eye recently and the writer has a lot of fans.
- Landline, by Rainbow Rowell. It’s Rainbow Rowell, what more else is there to say? I’ve read all of her previous books and loved the heck out of every one of them. I’m sure this one will be no different.
- The Marriage Game, by Elizabeth Weir. I love a bit of historical fiction and this one tackles Elizabeth I. I have read plenty of books about former Kings and Queens but I’ve not read much at all on Elizabeth I.
- What Came Before, by Anna George. I received this from the publisher (Penguin AU) and it’s about a man who just murdered his wife. He’s recording his confession in a car as his wife’s….spirit?… something, hovers over her dead body. The novel then goes back to show their past and how they came to end up at that horrifying point in time.
This list was surprisingly hard to construct….normally I have dozens of books I’m excited for in any given season but I’ve had a little break recently and I was shocked to find out how out of the loop I was! I had to hunt down books that are being released soon and it took me far longer than it normally would. However, I’m pretty confident of reading most of the books on this list – quite often in the past I’ve done a TBR for summer/spring/autumn/winter etc and then I go back months later and notice I didn’t read a single book listed on it! Hopefully when spring rolls around I can come and revisit this one and see that most of them have been crossed off the list. Some are still a bit up in the air (such as Isla, I’m no longer sure who has the rights here anymore).
