Summer 2018 TBR

I cannot believe that summer is just over a month away, which means I have about a month or so less of school…and that means more time for reading! The past few months I haven’t been great with my monthly reading count, but I am hoping to take advantage of two whole months off school and get a lot done. I am mostly looking forward to all the readathons happening this summer, like the Biannual Bibliothon and the BookTubeAThon because I always getย so much read. Anyways, here are a few of the main books I want to get to this summer, and I hope you enjoy.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemiย

This book had so much hype surrounding it when it first came out, and from what I gather, it is well deserved. However, I wanted to let some of the hype settle before picking it up…also it is a massive, fantasy book that takes time to read and that is something I do not have right now. All I know is that it is influenced by West African mythology and that is all I need to know. I am already so excited to get my hands on this book and devour it whole.

Save the Date by Morgan Matson

This is a new summery, contemporary book by Morgan Matson, one of the queens of contemporary, and I am so, so excited for it to come out on June 5th! Save the Date follows a girl named Charlie whose older sister is getting married, and for the first time in years, all four of her siblings will be together. Charlie is hoping for the perfect weekend, but of course it will be anything but that. I love re reading Morgan Matson books each summer, so I am looking forward to having a new one to adore!

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Scythe is another book that has a lot of amazing hype surrounding it, and I kept hearing about it so much that I just went out and bought it. I am really looking forward to diving into it because from what I know about it, it sounds fantastic. Scythe takes place in a world with no hunger, disease, death or anything bad. To keep balance in the world, there are scythes, those sent to kill people to keep the population under control. This book follows two apprentices to a scythe, Citra and Rowan, but it is a role neither of them wants. This book is intriguing and sounds captivating, and I am really hoping to get to it this summer…maybe even the second one too!

The Dark Artifices trilogy by Cassandra Clare

Even though the third and final book in this trilogy doesn’t come out until December, I am dying to give Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows a re read. I wanted to do this earlier but I don’t know if you have noticed that they are humongous books, and lately I just haven’t had the time to devote to them. Especially since they are so amazing that all I want to do is spend my time reading them! If you didn’t know, these books follow a race of half humans and half angels called Shadowhunters whose mission on earth is to keep humans safe from demons.

A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J Mass

Don’t worry, I have read the first book, A Court of Thorns and Roses, however I never finished the second book…now there is a third book out as well as a novella, and I realize how far behind I am! These are high fantasy books with faeries, and since I need to re read the first book before finally finishing the second book, I need the summer to do so. Everyone has read these books and everyone is discussing the events of the “finale” and I don’t want to be left out anymore!

Those are some of the books I want to get to this summer, and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out the blog posts linked below, and also follow my social media accounts for more bookish/writing related content ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Great list! Enjoy! Children of Blood and Bone lives up to the hype, I think. Although I had to get through about 1/3 of it before I felt it really became less typical YA and more something special. If you’re a Cassandra Clare fan, I’ll be interested to know what you think of the TDA, it gets mixed reviews!

  2. I absolutely love all of Maas’ and Clare’s books – hope you’ll enjoy them!
    I haven’t read Scythe yet, but I bought it last week – and the sequel. My boyfriend started reading it because.. well.. he didn’t have much else to do when we were on holiday and the evenings were just us relaxing. Now I’ve seen him sneaking to bed [and the bathroom, haha] with this book to continue reading it while he usually NEVER reads. Save to say I’m completely convinced the book is worth reading! ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. I am excited to get back into Maas’s books and as always, I love re reading Cassandra Clare’s books so thank you! I have only heard good things about Scythe but this just makes me want to read it sooner. Hopefully I can hold out until I have time ๐Ÿ™‚
