Top Ten Tuesday 1

 
Hosted by Broke and Bookish.
This weeks top 10 is to share the books we most want to read this summer.  

Losing It (Losing It, #1)   The Summer I Became a Nerd
 
Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X, #1)    Brisingr  (The Inheritance Cycle, #3) 
The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2)   City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2)   
 Kiss of Death (The Morganville Vampires, #8)   Storm Born (Dark Swan, #1) 
The Catcher in the Rye   The Reluctant Assassin (W.A.R.P., #1)  

There are so many on my to-read list.  Please note, I kept to reading list to books I own or have access to.  There are book coming out that I really want to read but I am not planning on reading them this summer due to time restraints and financial limits.  So, these were 10 that I, for sure, plan to read this summer.  Also, please note, these may not stay the top ten.  I may think of another later but as of this moment, here they are. 

It seems to be a Richelle Mead summer.  After looking back, I realized 3/10 books are hers.  Lucky lady!  

This is my first time joining Top Ten Tuesdays!  Thanks for stopping by.  I would love to know what you think of these books.  Also, feel free to let me know what tops your list right now.   :)

  1. That's great list, some of those books I also plan on reading. I've read all of Richelle's young adult series but I haven't tried any of her adult would you recommend them?

    1. The only one I read so far was Storm Born-Graphic Novel version. While it was adult content still a G.N. but I really liked it which is why I must read the actual novel it was based on. :)

  2. Oh, Catcher in the Rye. It's one of those books that people either love or hate. I want to reread it one more time just to see, but I might be in the dislike category.

    I'm hopeful though, because I hated The Great Gatsby in high school, but loved it as an adult.

    1. Yea one reason I don't want to keep pushing through. I hate waiting for the next book. I love Richelle Mead but she has her hands full with a few too many series' IMO. Thanks for the return stop! :)

  24. You've got a great list, I hope you manage to read all ten of them. I really enjoyed The Golden Lily, and Brisingr is a good read too - as it The Catcher in the Rye, though it does seem to split oppinion.

    1. Yea the cover for Losing It did nothing for me which is why it took me so long to get to it. But when I finally stopped and read about it, I was hooked. :)

  27. I'm looking forward to reading The Summer I Became A Nerd too. I'm also in two minds whether or not I should start the Mortal Instruments series. Hope you enjoy your summer of reading also!

    1. So far I like the Mortal Instruments series but I probably should have waited, mainly because I am already in the middle of too many series'. Oh well, too late now. :)

  28. I loved reading Losing It, The Summer I Became a Nerd and City of Ashes (I just finished Losing It a little over a week ago). Brisingr is very good as well. I have Warp also, but haven't gotten to it yet. It looks like you have a very ambitious reading list on your hands!

    Have fun with all of these, and thanks for stopping by my TTT last night. :)

  33. City of Ashes is on my to-read list too! I just finished CIty of Bones (as in only an hour ago) and can't wait to get into the next addition to the series.

    I read Gameboard of the Gods - it's very different from the other Richelle Mead books I've read (VA, Bloodlines and Georgina Kincaid). But It's an interesting read and one that I thought was worthwhile. Hope you have a great summer!
