I am excited to once again be list making – about books of course – with the always fun (and dangerously addictive) meme Top Ten Tuesday, created by The Broke and Bookish.
This week’s theme? Top Ten Books on Your Summer TBR list for 2015
Listed alphabetically by author
I have of course many more than ten titles I want to read but these are not to be missed! Some of these titles are on my #MustReadin2015 list. Some are by authors I saw speak over the last calendar year. Some are by authors I love or titles that come highly recommended.
A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah
This has come hugely recommended and I just picked it up at the library.
The Penderwicks in Spring by Jeanne Birdsall
Nostalgia and joy all wrapped up in the family Penderwicks. Love these books!
Mexican Whiteboy by Matt de la Peña
One of my recent favourite titles was We Were Here by de la Peña. Heard him speak in Bellingham in the early spring and want to read more of his work.
Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Saving this for the beginning of summer when I can read it all in one day.
One Thing Stolen by Beth Kephart
Kephart is one of my very favourite writers. Period.
Mark of the Thief by Jennifer A. Nielsen
In my house we loved The False Prince trilogy so checking this out next.
Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith
Everyone who has read this book has such strong reactions. My turn!
The Whisper by Aaron Starmer
The Riverman was extremely troubling and odd and oh so curious. I am completely intrigued by this next title,
Black Dove, White Raven by Elizabeth Wein
Have loved two novels by Wein so far so I have hight hopes for this.
Beneath a Meth Moon by Jacqueline Woodson
I hear Woodson read excerpts of this book this spring when my husband and I went to see her. We bought a copy and I can’t wait to read it.
What will you be reading this summer?
