I’m into post series right now so I’m joining Top Ten Tuesdays, a weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish. I hope I can do this given my short attention span and tendency to put things off or run away from stuff to do.
So this week’s top ten is Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR List. Admittedly, summer is over here in the Philippines so this shouldn’t apply to me anymore. But I am of the belief that summer, or at least summer vibes and themes, is yearlong. I love summer books and I love summer music and I read and listen to these even if the rain is pouring. So today, I am listing my top ten summer books or books that I wished I read last summer. Enjoy!
1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
What better way to gear up for the movie but read this! Plus it’s all about a freshman in college and the freshman year reminds me of the easygoing life, so summer! Plus, the copy I borrowed has a colorful cover, which I deem perfect for summer.
2. The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
It’s summer and you have nothing to read so what better book to read than what will make you a generally happier person? I admit I’ve been getting sad recently so I borrowed this book to lift up my spirits.
3. Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
Another preparation for the movie. Plus, it’s sitting on my downloads folder for so long. Summer is all about love, they say, so a zombie romance is definitely a must-read.
4. Past Perfect by Leila Sales
I heart stories about second chances and this one is set to summer so perfect!
5. Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach
Though I love my heroines, it’s so nice to read a YA book with a male character. And this book is just it. From joke to jock, what a great subtitle.
6. Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
What is it with bad boys and graffiti artists? Wouldn’t it be awesome if that graffiti artist you’re obsessed with is that guy who’s always around? Swoon.
7. Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald
I also dig books about getting over someone or something so yey!
8. Easy by Tammara Webber
I’ve heard good things about this book so in it goes to the TBR pile.
9. Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne
I’ve also heard nothing but raves about this book so I want to check it out.
10. Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend by Matthew Green
And lastly, I want to end with something not so shallow and this just fits right in.
So what’s yours?
