Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and features weekly top-ten lists! This week it’s…
Top Ten Books On My Fall 2013 TBR List
Gah, there are SO MANY books coming out soon that I can’t wait to read… but there are also a lot of already-released books that I’m dying to finally read, as well (my library has been good to me recently, lol). So I’m going to split my list into two lists of five: My Top Five Most Anticipated Fall New Releases, and a general “TBR” top five for this fall. ;)
—— Top Five Most Anticipated Fall New Releases ——
Summer Lovin’ runs from July 1-7. This is a no-pressure Read-a-Thon – the point is to have fun and to tackle your summer TBR list. Set your own goals and enjoy participating in posts, challenges, and giveaways! It will all culminate in a 24-hr marathon read-a-thon, from Saturday July 6th at 10am EST, to Sunday July 7th at 10am EST. Sign ups are open through July 6th!
Today is Day Two of the Read-a-Thon, and today’s discussion topic is…
You’re the One That I Want
List your must-have summer reading (the ones you read over and over again) or give us some of your favorite recommended summer reads.
I’m dividing this topic into two sections…
1) Recommended Summer Reading
These are some lighter, what-I-consider summery reads, which I would totally consider re-reading if I had the time (darn you, Goodreads and my mile-long TBR list!!). Definitely check these out if you haven’t read them! (Especially The Art of Wishing – that book needs more love, it is ADORABLE.)
2) My Highly-Anticipated Summer Releases
I’d also like to take this opportunity to list the not-yet-released summer reads that I’m most looking forward to! Since summer officially ends on September 21st, these all come out between now and then, and I am SUPER EXCITED for all of them!

You stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…
Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town… until River West comes along. River rents the guest house behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard.
Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more?
Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery... who makes you want to kiss back.
Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.
Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch.
I can’t really put into words why this sounds so good to me… What with the gorgeous cover, the awesome title, and that blurb, it just sounds atmospheric and creepy – like it could be beautiful and haunting, a combo I love. I seriously can’t wait until August for this. =S
