Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Summer TBR

Hello everybody! Today I’m taking part in my first Top Ten Tuesday in ages, which is all about some of the books I’ll be reading over the summer! I’m loving being off uni and having more time to read right now so much. Anyway, onto the post!

REVIEW COPIES (this is only some of them, because I wanted to include other things too, and I’ve just chosen at random!)

The Week at World’s End- I am an Emma Carroll SUPERFAN. I’m so, so excited to pick up her newest MG book, which I was very kindly sent by Faber. It’s about the Cuban Missile Crisis, which I know very little about, so I’m looking forward to learning more. I don’t actually think I’ve read a book set in the 60s before!

Fireborn– this sounds like such an amazing fantasy, and I love the proof cover a lot. It’s about a girl named Twelve who is a Huntling, and the epic adventure she goes on that changes her whole life.

The Howling Hag Mystery- I loved the Seth Seppi mysteries by this author, and Nightshade the cat was my absolute fave character, so I couldn’t be more excited that she’s getting her very own spinoff series.

Rules for Vampires- my proof of this also hasn’t arrived yet, but I’m very much hoping it’ll be here in time for my holiday. I’ve not properly loved a vampire book since the My Sister the Vampire series ended, so I’m dying to get my hands on this! It’s about a young vampire named Leo who accidentally reignites an ancient war.

The Last Hawk- I’ve really enjoyed all of Elizabeth Wein’s other titles for Barrington Stoke, so I’m sure this will be every bit as gripping, moving and clever. She always covers such interesting periods of history and considers them from perspectives you don’t often read about.


Wave Riders– I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to reading the new Lauren St John on my summer holiday (to Northumberland, so please don’t accuse of flouting COVID rules!), because that’s where I read my first of her books and the nostalgia will make me love this even more. It’s about twins whose guardian goes missing, and the mysterious house they go and stay in.

Not My Problem– I read and really enjoyed Ciara Smith’s debut last summer, so I’m hoping to fit her new release in soon! It’s an f/f romance about a school fixer… which is just such an amazing concept!!

Malibu Rising– Daisy Jones and the Six is one of the most incredible things I’ve ever read, as is Evelyn Hugo, so while I know next to nothing about the actual plot of this other than it focuses on the Riva family, I’m buzzing to get to it soon!

The Road Trip- I really loved the Flatshare, and also enjoyed the Switch, so I’m very much looking forward to picking up Beth O’Leary’s latest. It’s about two exes who end up trapped together in a very cramped car on the way to a wedding, which is such a cool concept.

The Lucky Escape- again, I’ve really liked Laura Jane Williams’ other romances, so I’m hoping this will also be a winner. It’s about a woman who gets jilted on her wedding day, who decides to go on the honeymoon with an old friend (who I’m assuming she’ll fall in love with!)

Thank you so much for reading! What are some of the books on your summer TBR? Have you read any from mine? I’d love to hear in the comments!

    1. It has been WAY TOO LONG since her last full length book, in my defense 😂😂
      I’m looking forward to Fireborn, and I love LSJ so I think I’ll enjoy Wave Riders. Will let you know my verdict x
