Carrying on with the summer theme, I thought I’d put together a little TBR for the summer. I’m not typically good at keeping up with TBR’s but I still like to do them to get an idea of what books I want to prioritise, and it’s always a nice reminder of what books I have. I’ll most likely buy more throughout the summer, so as I said it will change, but this is based on what I currently own.
Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index by Julie Israel
I bought this last July at YALC, because there was a lot of hype for it, and it sounds really good, but I still haven’t got round to it. It follows a girl called Juniper who, after her sister dies, finds a love letter written from her sister to someone. The book follows Juniper searching for the identity of the person the letter was addressed to. It sounds like a really fun summery contemporary, so I can’t wait to read it soon!
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
As I said in my previous post I really want to finish re-reading the Harry Potter series, so now I have more time over summer it seems like a good time to do it. I’ve re-watched the film of Half Blood Prince recently with my friends and I really enjoy it, so I’m looking forward to reading the book.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
So carrying on in the reading of the Harry Potter series, obviously next is the Deathly Hallows to finish it off. I know that these two are pretty long and because I’m so busy working it might take me a bit longer than usual, but hopefully I should be able to get through them both other summer.
House on the Strand by Daphne Du Maurier
I recently read Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier and loved it, so when we were in Cornwall we went to a cute independent book that had a whole display of books set in Cornwall, and my mum bought House on the Strand for both of us to read. It sounds pretty different from Rebecca from what I’ve heard, although I don’t know a whole lot about it, but if it’s as good as Rebecca was I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.
Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
I also bought Moxie quite a while ago – although not quite as long ago as Juniper Lemon – and still haven’t got round to reading it. I first heard about it as YALC, and I got a feminist pin from the stand, but I didn’t actually buy it until a few months later. I haven’t read many super feminist books, and it just sounds so awesome I can’t wait to read it soon.
The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
I wasn’t originally going to have this on my TBR, but my mum just finished reading it and really enjoyed it, so she’s recommended that I read it soon, so I think when I’ve finished what I’m reading at the moment (Circe by Madeline Miller) I’ll read this. I don’t know a lot about it because it a psychological thriller type book I believe, so I think the less I know the better going into it.
As I said, I might not actually stick to this, because I’m going shopping at the weekend (so I’m obviously going to buy books), but it’s just a general idea of what I’m looking forward to reading soon. If you’ve read any of the books I mentioned let me know what you thought of them!
