Eight Books I Will (Hopefully) Read This Summer

Run by The Broke and the Bookish
It's summer, and we all know what that means.

(It's going to rain a lot?)

Well, yes, but it's also time to dig out your to-read pile, blow off the dust, and plough through it.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6780522-the-ice-cream-girls1. The Ice Cream Girls by Dorothy Koomson

I've started this one. I'm vaguely uncomfortable with it, and not for the reasons you'd think.
 
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30336923-take-the-key-and-lock-her-up2. Take the Key and Lock Her Up by Ally Carter

It is shameful how long it has taken me to get to this. It is the last book in one of my favourite series so, if I don't enjoy it, I may slump.

(Oh God. I really hope you enjoy it.)

You can be nice!

(I have to live with you.)

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6046707-shaman-king-vol-203. Shaman King Volumes 20-32 by Hariyuki Takei

I know that, with the exception of volume five, they have all of them up to volume 30 at the library. Hopefully they have all the way up to volume 32.

I! Am! So! Excited! For! This! One!
...I'm going to slump at least once this summer, aren't I?

(Definitely.)


(It's about time! You've had it since christmas!)

I know. I'm a failure.

(You've had this one since -)

Since Christmas! I know!

7. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

Did you watch the BBC series? Because that is so not the reason that this book is on here. 
I bet they don't get arrested half as much in the books.


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26236443-a-gathering-of-shadows8. A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

(You've had this so long that the third one's out.)

I know. Is it bad that I want it even though I haven't read this one yet?

(Obviously.)




(You do realise that summer reads are supposed to be light and fluffy, right?)

Hey! The Ice Cream Girls is supposedly chick-lit. It's not my fault that it turned out to be a crime thriller.

What are you reading this summer?

  1. Great post! Oh yes my fluffy summery TBR also has the tendency to become full of bloody high fantasy. Like how does it even do that?? Crooked Kingdom is one of my faves because of the sass and snark and also the snaks so I hope you love it too.
