Ten Books I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer

Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly feature created at The Broke and The Bookish.

Here are my fiction picks for summer reads. We don't really have many beaches near where I live, but none the less, here we go:

1. End of Days by Susan Ee: These books are quick reads, and I'm looking forward to having a chance to finish up the series.

2. Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee: This sort of just sounds like a good summer read. Some books just do.

3. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh: Mostly because, by the time I get my hands on it, it will definitely be summer. Libraries are like that sometimes.

4. Sea Change by S. M. Wheeler: This sounds like a strange little book about a sea monster that isn't quite a monster.

5. The Martian by Andy Wien: I get the sense it will be the sort of book that I wander around with my nose in, attempting to do everything one-handed.

6. Compulsion by Martina Boone: This is another book that seems like a warm-weather read. Especially if the weather is humid.

7. This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel: Especially with the movie news, I would like to try it again, I'm not sure why I didn't finish it, I think school got busy.

8. Monstrous Affections edited by Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant: I started this a while ago, but I would like to finish it. Short stories might be good for something to read between doing other things.

9. Blue Birds by Caroline Starr Rose: Stories about language barriers interest me, and this has a language barrier. Its also a part of an interesting time in North America's history.

10. Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George: Sounds like a fun read.


  1. The Wrath and the Dawn and The Martian both made my list this week too. I am so excited to read them! I've heard so many great things about them both; hopefully, my expectations aren't too high! Happy reading! :)

    1. I'm the same. I actually haven't heard that much about The Martian, besides the synopsis, but it sounds like its right up my alley.

  2. Compulsion is a MUST READ! It's so good! I'm reading Persuasion right now (the second one in the series). Martina Boone is seriously amazing! I hope you get to it soon!

    1. I'm hoping to get to it soon, I just have to get my hands on a copy first!
