My (Tentative) Summer TBR!

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni and today I'll be sharing with you the books I am planning on reading this summer! I finish school this next Monday and I cannot be happier. I'll finally have some time to read! So let's take a look at  10 books that  I am going to be reading this summer!

1.) Let the Wind Rise by Shannon Messenger
Let the Wind Rise is the final book in one of my favorite trilogies. I absolutely adored the first two books and I hope that I won't be let down by this conclusion. Vane and Audra, the two main characters, have an amazing romance.  
2.) The Crown by Kiera Cass
The Crown is the final book in Cass' Selection series, for real this time. It was already released and it has been hard to not see any spoilers. Thankfully, I've been successful not seeing any, and I am eagerly looking forward to seeing who Eadlyn ends up with!  
3.) A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
How can this not be on the list? I adored A Court of Thorns and Roses last summer! I had a few minor issues, but I haven't heard anything but glowing reviews from my friends. I can't wait to get my hands on it! 
4.) Flawed by Cecilia Ahren 
I have no idea why, but I really want to read Flawed. It has been so long since I have read a dystopian novel, and I'm excited to see what I think of them now that I am a more experienced reader. It has a pretty good rating on goodreads, so if all goes well, I'll like it! 

5.) Firstlife by Gena Showalter
I am currently reading Firstlife right now! I just randomly picked this up right before I went to bed, and it had me hooked immediately. I keep on wanting to read this, but I haven't enough time. I loved Showalter's White Rabbit Chronicles series, and I hope this one lives up to my expectations. 
6.) And I Darken by Kiersten White
This is another book that I am currently reading. I read this whenever I have free time in school, which isn't a lot. I'll have more time to read this after school ends! I'm roughly 50 pages in, so I don't have that good of a feel on what is happening, but I am darkly intrigued. 
7.) Feuds by Avery Hastings
I started reading Feuds about two months ago, and I'm only on page 48. I've only sat down with this book once and I put it down right as it was starting to pick up. Even though this book doesn't have the best reviews, I want to know what happens! 

8.) November 9 by Colleen Hoover
I got an e-copy of this through my blogger friend Poulami after winning her giveaway. I'm in some desperate need for some CoHo, and I can't wait any longer. She is one of my favorite authors and it has been too long since the last time I read one of her books. 
9.) Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
I am determined to read this book. I've had it since the day before its release date (I went to a signing) and it is about time that I picked this book up. Initially I didn't read the book because I wanted to wait for the hype to die down, but the second book is out now, and I need to jump on the bandwagon.  
10.) In the Hope of Memories by Olivia Rivers
I just got this via Netgalley and I'm excited to get into it after I finish my current read. The novel is about a girl Hope and how her four closest friends embark on a scavenger hunt made by her after her death. You can learn more about the book here on the goodreads page!

You might not know, but I also started a TBR Jar in the very beginning of the year. If you are wondering about how it is going, the answer is not well! :D My goal was to read one book from the jar every month, but I've only done that for one month. However, I am not planning on buying any books anytime soon, so I hope I can cut down the amount of un-read books in my room from fifty to around thirty.  

What books are you planning on reading this summer? Do we have any in common? 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!


  1. I'm looking forward to reading And I Darken and I hope you like it! I tried Firstlife, but I just couldn't get into it but I hope you enjoy it - I need to try Showalter's other series. :)

    1. Thanks Lauren! I hope that I like Firstlife. I just started getting into it. I really like her White Rabbit Chronicles, but the first book it isn't pretty angsty from what I remember.

  2. Let the Wind Rise sounds amazing, will def check it out. You need to jump on ACOMAF bandwagon read read read!! And I Darken is def on my tbr :) -Tina

    1. It's the third in a series but I really recommend it! It's such an original series. And yes!! I'm in line for it at my library, but there are so many people ahead of me! Thankfully I haven't been spoiled yet! I hope you like it. :D

  3. Hooray for your awesome picks, Gen! *high fives* :D I haven't heard some of the books on your lists but I would totally check them. Their blurbs are quite amazing :)

    I would want to read The Crown soon but given how irritated I was with The Heir, I became somehow hesitant to continue read the last installment. Did you like The Heir though? :)

    I can't wait for you to read Red Queen! I really hope you would love that. (*whispers* "Be prepared.") ;)

    Happy reading! :D

    1. Aw thanks Fiona! *high fives back*

      Yeah I can see why you got irritated with the Heir. I did get really annoyed with Eadlyn, but I liked it because it was entertaining! I really just want to know how it all ends and get some finality.

      I know I'm so excited! I just hope that it exceeds my expectations. Yeah, I've heard a lot about how the ending is mind blowing!

      Thanks Fiona. :D You too!

  4. I just started ACOMAF and a lot of books from this list are in my tbr as well! Great post!

  5. I really want to read The Crown too (even though I've already been spoiled as to who Eadlyn ends up with). I'm actually also read ACOMAF right at this very moment! I'm about halfway through and loving every minute - hopefully you'll love it too :) Happy reading!

    1. Ahhh don't tell me who!! I've become so close to being spoiled but I've thankfully stayed in the clear. That's great news. I can't wait to get my hands on it. :)
