Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we list top bookish things.
Note that Giselle and Jenni often decide to split it and each do a Top 5.


A hot TBR list for a hot summer!

  • Don’t Touch by Rachel M. Wilson: I’m always fascinated by stories that deal with OCD and this one sounds like it won’t disappoint.  I’m very curious to see how the MC deals with her obsession in the face of it harming her chances of being an actress.
  • Rooms by Lauren Oliver:  This sounds haunting and so interesting. I am a huge Lauren Oliver fan and even though Panic didn’t really work for me, I have high hopes for this one!

TT2 TT3 Let's Get Lost TT5 TT1

  • Dissonance by Erica O’Rourke: I have been intrigued by this one ever since I was compelled by its cover. It sounds like such an interesting read and parallel worlds/universes have always fascinated me.
  • Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid: I heard Adi talk about his book at BEA and I was even more excited to read it after. He’s a funny guy and it sounds like this book will be a lot of fun, but not just fluff either. Plus, how can I go a whole summer without a great road-trip book?

What’s on your summer TBR list? Any that matches ours?

    Jenni: I love the cover for I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN — it’s so simple yet eye-catching at the same time and I agree, the blurb sounds fantastic. Fingers crossed it won’t disappoint! And I’m going to be reading Don’t Touch soon, I think, and it’ll be the second book dealing with OCD that I’ve read ever. Definitely looking forward to it. I’m just not really a fan of the cover because it looks like some paranormal book or something, heh. Yes to Rooms, too — I met Lauren recently and she said something about how each chapter stood for a room in the house, so that sounds like a interesting and original way to write a book. I’m just hoping it’s not as confusing as it sounds, lol.

    Giselle: This cover is GORGEOUS. I love all the colors and hues. Same here, parallel universes TOTALLY intrigue me. I’m such a nerd, haha. And ooh, I hadn’t heard of The Girl From the Well before now, so thanks for putting it on my radar! It definitely looks like my kind of read, I’m really getting into horror these days, so I hope it actually lives up to the creepiness factor. I haven’t read many books that are actually scary, you know? :/ Totally looking forward to Welcome to the Dark House as well. Its cover actually reminds me of one of Stephen King’s novels which is… good, I guess?

    Anyway, great picks, ladies! Can’t wait for many of these books as well. :D

    I have a few of those on my summer reading list. I didn’t liste them in my top ten but I also have Lets Get Lost, Girl From the Well, and Welcomone to the Dark house coming up this summer. great list of books.

  3. Andrea @ Bookish

    I’m so pumped for Landline! I just adore Rainbow and haven’t come across a book from her that I haven’t enjoyed. I’m also looking forward to Dissonance. I haven’t heard much about that one, but I saw all the packages some bloggers received from the publisher and the plot definitely caught my eye!

    I’m so excited to read Don’t Touch too, Jenni. It sounds so amazing and it touches a topic that I don’t think I’ve seen many YA books have attempted. Breathe, Annie, Breathe is also on my must reads this summer. Yes to, Kenneally feelings! :)
    I’m very curious about I’ll Give You the Sun, but there’s already so much hype surrounding this book. I want to wait and see what others think of it.

    Giselle, I am so excited for The Girl From the Well! Doesn’t it look like an amazing read?! Did you manage to snag a copy at BEA?
    Also, yes, I’m so curious about Welcome to the Dark House. It looks like it’s going to be a thrilling ride!

    I hope these books live up to your expectations, ladies. :)

      No I missed the drop for that one at BEA, but I have it from either EW or NG anyways so that will do! :D

      Welcome to the Dark House could be either a total flop or seriously creep-tastic! I hope it’s the latter!

    I bet you that 95% of all of your selected books has now made it to my own list! All their covers are just beautiful for a lack of better words. Great selections, and good luck with your summer TBR!

    Oh, you have such a great list!! Don’t Touch, Dissonance, and Welcome to the Dark House (which I’m extremely curious about) are all on my to-read list. Oh, and so is Rooms, but I haven’t read anything by Lauren Oliver yet.

    I hope you’re able to read all of these books this summer! :)

  9. Michelle

    You guys both have such an AMAZING list! Can I steal/have some of the books? :p Giselle, you will love Dissonance. It’s my favourite book of 2014! Oh, and Jenni, you seriously need to hand me Breathe, Annie, Breathe and Landline and ROOMS. AHH, so many amazing books are coming out this summer! <3

  10. Kaitlin @ Reading is My Treasure

    None of these are on my top ten post (I stuck to personaly TBR books), but I’ll be reading Don’t Touch this summer! I may end up reading Let’s Get Lost as well. I’ll Give You the Sun, Landline, and Rooms are all by authors from some of my favorite books, so I’m definitely excited about reading those sometime. The Girl From the Well has intrigued me ever since I discovered it. It just keeps grabbing my attention. I hope you two love those books. :)

    Jenni: Don’t Touch sounds really awesome and it’s on my TBR too! I hope you enjoy Landline. :)

    Giselle: Welcome to the Dark House and The Girl From the Well have lovely covers. The Girl From the Well sort of reminds me of that girl from the Ring…dun dun dun…

    Haha, happy reading to the both of you! :)

    I really want to read Breathe, Annie, Breathe because I loved Catching Jordan so I need more. Yes I know there is a whole series. I own the whole series but I still want to have the newest one.

    Jenni: I’ll Give You the Sun – OH I wish I had added that one to my list! Awesome summer read.

    Giselle: Dissonance – YES! I went ahead and just added it to my preorder list, because I just have to own that cover, at least. It is BEAUTIFUL.

    None looks familiar… except for maybe Dissonance. The cover is GORGEOUS. O_O

    I’m hoping to get rid of my TBR Pile Challenge books – 3 more! And my Kindle library. That needs a really big mop, bucket of water, and well… quite a company of people to finish those…

    Minus the people. I wouldn’t have a clue what was going on if someone read my books for me. O_o
