Top Ten Tuesday (6-19-12)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week, 
they post a different topic, and you get to create your own top ten list. So, this week's 
topic is:

Books On My Summer TBR List

1) any Adriani Trigiani novel - I have fallen in love with this author over the past month and cannot get enough of her work. So, I'm hoping to get to most of her books this summer.

2) Days of Splendor, Days of Sorrow by Juliet Grey - I read the first book in this Marie Antoinette trilogy last summer and LOVED it. I have been anxiously awaiting this release for the past few months, so my copy is on hold for me at my library!

3) Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead - a novel set in New England around a wedding. Sounds like a good summer read to me!

4) The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner - I love Weiner's books and this is her latest one. Definitely looking forward to spending some time in the sunshine with this one!

5) Where We Belong by Emily Giffin - I love Giffin's work but haven't read any of her books while having a blog. This one comes out at the end of July, and I cannot wait to read and review it!

6) Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand - to me, Hilderbrand is quintessential summertime reading. This is her book that came out last summer. I have felt like it has been staring at me the past few months, daring me to read it, but I have managed to resist so that I could sit outside, next to the pool, and devour her work.

7) Shopaholic Takes Manhattan by Sophie Kinsella - I love Kinsella's work but have avoided continuing with the Shopaholic series for some reason (don't ask me why). So, a few days ago, I decided that it was time to continue with the series. Hopefully, I can get to this one in the next few weeks.

8) That Woman: The Life of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor by Anne Sebba - my summer can't be filled with all fluff, can it?!? So, I've wanted to read this one for a long time now and hope that I can get to it this summer. I'm fascinated by Wallis Simpson and would like to learn a little more about her.

9) Home Front by Kristin Hannah - this one is her latest book and I have been waiting for a few months to read it. 

10) My Year With Eleanor by Noelle Hancock - one woman loses her job and spends the next year living by Eleanor Roosevelt's advice of "Do one thing everyday that scares you." I would love to see how this woman spent that year of her life and what all she did.

So, what's on your summer TBR list? Let me know!

  1. I like #10. Sounds interesting. I don't think I've heard of it before or seen it listed anywhere. Enjoyed reading your list and descriptions. Thanks.
