Top Ten Tuesday: June 17, 2014 – Top Ten Books I’ve Read This Year + on my Summer TBR


It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic: 
Top Ten Books I’ve Read This Year
Top Ten Books on my Summer TBR

I wasn’t able to participate in Top Ten Tuesday last week because I was on a blog tour so I’m combining last week and this week! I was really excited about sharing my favorite books from this year because I’ve already read a lot of exciting books! So this post will be two-in-one 🙂




For my summer TBR list, I’m going with part unreleased books that are going to be released this summer and part books I know I WANT to read this summer. I honestly can’t choose what books I may or may not read this summer because I NEVER follow my reading lists haha. At least this way I can be honest!

My Life Next Door
Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire

Ruin and Rising
On the Fence
The Vanishing Season
Strange and Ever After
Mortal Danger
A Little Something Different

  1. Rebecca @ The Library Canary

    I really need to read MLND! I have it. (I feel like I say that a lot…”I need to read that! I have it.” Fail). But seriously. And it seems like a good summer read. I need to meet Jase Garrett! I’m also planning on binge reading the Grisha Trilogy this summer now that the third one is out! Woot! Oh and I’m starting Game of Thrones. Hopefully. *crosses fingers* *edges towards GOT cliff*

  2. Alexa S.

    You should most definitely read THRONE OF GLASS, CROWN OF MIDNIGHT & HEIR OF FIRE! (And I know I’m totally predictable for saying that since I fangirl over this series ALL THE DAMN TIME.) But seriously, it’s one of my favorites and most beloved and one that is worth investing in!

    That being said, My Life Next Door? It’s pretty darn awesome. I read it back when it first came out and promptly fell in love. It’s a beautiful story, and Jase is the bee’s knees.

    Also, Strange & Ever After? BEST. I just read it a few weeks ago, and fell promptly in love. Susan managed to end the trilogy in the best way possible — and I am excited for you to read it.

    Also, I’m with you on the anticipation for Ruin & Rising! I need that baby in my hands like yesterday. (Seriously though, why do you ship so late B&N? Grrr.)

  3. Kaitlin @ Reading is My Treasure

    I’m not surprised to see Vicious, Open Road Summer, and The Lies of Locke Lamora on your first list. I’ve been told each is amazing! I want to read Crown of Midnight and Heir of Fire this summer as well. And Ruin and Rising (of course). That series is such a good one.

  4. Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook

    I love Walk Two Moons! It’s been ages since I’ve read it, but I remember loving it. I also love Love That Dog and Hate That Cat by Sharon Creech.

    I think My Life Next Door is a great summer read! I think you will really like it.

  5. Melissa @ Bookmark Dragon

    I just finished Crown of Midnight and I’m still hyperventilating over it. So, so good! Ruin and Rising is really high on my list, too! Happy reading this summer, looks like you’ll have some great books to devour!

  6. Gabbie

    My Life Next Door (in my opinion) was fabulous! it was a really cute contemporary. I haven’t read any of your favorites thus far so I will definitely be checking them out. And you haven’t read the Throne of Glass series yet either?! I haven’t and it seems not many are in that situation. I am hoping to cure that sometime this summer though! Happy reading (:

  7. Dahlia Adler

    Yessss…every time I see love for DANGEROUS GIRLS, a devil gets its wings <3 As for the books pubbing this summer, ON THE FENCE is afreakingdorable and ILLUSIVE is hands-down one of my favorite reads of the year, so I hope you love them both!

  8. Becky LeJeune

    Oh, LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA really should have been on my list. I seem to keep misplacing it, so it’s getting to be a this-has-been-in-my-TBR-an-embarrassingly-long-time title.

  9. Ginger @ GReads!

    My Life Next Door was among my top 3 favorites read last year. I hope you get around to it this summer & enjoy it as much as I did! I’m planning to read Throne of Glass this summer, too. Decided it was way past time with all the wonderful recommendations from so many trusted reader friends.

  10. Anne @ Lovely Literature

    I can’t wait for Mortal Heart to come out! And, I didn’t include any of the blogs I just want to read on my list because I need to concentrate on the eARCs! But if I had, Throne of Glass would be on it for sure!

  11. Nicole @ The Quiet Concert

    So excited to see Mortal Heart and Ask Again Later on your favorites list since I will be reading these this summer/fall!

    Ruin and Rising and The Vanishing Season are next up for me! I LOVED On the Fence and My Life Next Door is still one of my favorite contemporaries!!

    And I think you know how I feel about the Throne of Glass series already 🙂

  12. Stormy

    YAY Open Road Summer & Dangerous Girls! And Ask Again Later and Vicious as well.
    Yessss to the Throne of Glass books. ToG was a little slow for me at the beginning but once it really picked up the series has just continued to be excellent. I’m reading Heir of Fire right now and even though it’s a super long book, it doesn’t feel that way at all.

  13. Amanda @ Book Badger

    My Life Next Door I’m reading for my read-a-thon, Throne of Glass made my list too, and I loved Dangerous Girls and Dangerous Boys so far this year too, it’s been a good year and should be a good Summer too! I’m excited! Good luck with all your books Brittany! 😀
