Hello bookworms and happy Tuesday! It’s the most exciting day of the week because it’s list writing and posting day (I know, my days are super exciting). This Top Ten Tuesday topic is where I get to pledge to read ten more books this season, and then undoubtedly forget about this list, read what I want and look again in the fall and realise I’ve failed. But hey, let’s not dwell, on with the list!
1. A Curse so Dark and Lonely
It’s got a curse, and it’s pretty dark and the people in it do seem really lonely. Just what it says on the tin!
2. Red Queen
Funny story. You know how most Bookworms have a hoarding problem? Well I have one too! Only I hoard other people’s books! Hahaha, yeah my friends must love me. Anyway, I borrowed this book a while ago and said I’d return it to my friend at YALC so I guess it’s now or never with reading it.
This has a similar story. I know I know I’m bad at reading borrowed books.
4. One of Us is Lying
This just sounds so good. And the author is at YALC so I’m hoping to get it signed.
5. Moby Dick
Oh my gosh this book is soooooo boring. I’ve read all of five pages so I should know. Anyway, perseverance in the face of adversity and all, hopefully I’ll finish it soon 🤞🤞
Am I ready to see all power fates that escaped a deck of cards fight two sisters and their unconscious mother? Yeah I am.
7. Shadow and Bone
Everyone loved these books and I just don’t like feeling left out, ok?
8. Stalking Jack the Ripper
Again, I just want to feel included 😭
I got a really pretty copy of this (the one with the stripes!) to get signed at YALC and I’m just so excited to read more VE Schwab.
10. King of Fools
After how Ace of Shades finished? Yeah I’m going to need this. Also I’ve heard such good things.
Let’s Compare Notes
There you have it! My summer tbr. What’s on yours? Have you read any of these books? Feel free to leave a link, fangirl squeal or even a heartfelt appreciation of one of these great works of literature in the comments section.
