9 books on my Summer TBR

Summer is almost upon us! After we’re done moving, I’m hoping that life will settle down enough for me to read more. I’m going to be transitioning from working to being a stay-at-home-mom for at least a little while and I’m looking forward to it. While I’m not working, I’m hoping to get to these books:

Books That I Own


The Weed that Strings the Hangman’s Bag by Alan Bradley – I really liked the first book in this series and I have like…the next six on my shelf. I need to continue with this series!
eBook | Paperback

Legendary by Stephanie Garber – The first book was great and I’ve been looking forward to the second, just haven’t gotten around to it unfortunately. And now the third book is out? I didn’t realize how behind I was!
eBook | Hardcover | Paperback

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo – Another book that’s just been sitting on my shelf since I got it! I’ve just had so many other things to read, but I really want to make this a priority for this Summer!
eBook | Hardcover

2019 Releases


Descendant of the Crane by Joan He – This one sounds awesome and I’ve only heard good things about it. I love the Asian rep!
eBook | Hardcover

The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen – I can honestly say, this is the only book on my list that I know with a deep surety I’ll be reading this Summer. HATE SPINNERBAIT!
Preorder: eBook | Hardcover

With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo – I haven’t read Poet X, but I’ve heard amazing things about it, so I have high expectations for this book. It has food and babies, two things that I love!
eBook | Hardcover

Backlist Reads


This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills – All of her covers are STUNNING and all of her books sound interesting to me. I’m not really sure why I haven’t read anything by her yet? But I’m hoping to this Summer!
eBook | Hardcover | Paperback

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black – I had a huge Holly Black phase when I was in junior high. I devoured her Tithe series, but haven’t really been back to visit since. I know everyone and their mother has read this book and is OBSESSED. I’m ready to join the bandwagon.
eBook | Hardcover | Paperback

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – Another book that I’ve only heard good things about. I don’t really have a good reason why I haven’t read this yet, I just haven’t gotten to it.
eBook | Hardcover | Paperback (Preorder)

  1. I just finished This Adventure Ends and I loved it! It’s got such wonderful characters, family, friendships and romance 😊 I loved Caraval, but have yet to read Legendary as well. I can’t believe the third book’s already out. Oops!

  2. I just finished listening to Legendary a minute ago. I liked it more than Caraval. You’re in for some fun.
    I adore Emma Mills’ books. I have read every one. I actually started with This Adventure Ends. It’s not my favorite book of hers, but it also kind of is. I know that makes no sense, but I absolutely adored this supporting character named Frank Sanger. I loved him so much I want him to have his own book. So, yeah. I hope you love Frank as much as I did. 🙂

  3. Awesome summer reading list! I plan to stop buying physical books after this month (coz I’ve gone crazy with the spending) but hope to tackle more of the books I own. A lot on here that I also wanna add to my shelves… Soon! Happy reading 🙂

  4. oooh a new Sarah Dessen book?!?! Perhaps nothing screams SUMMER more to me than a good Sarah Dessen book–makes me so nostalgic for when I used to read them in middle school and high school! I’ll definitely have to check it out this summer as well.
