So this is the final summer that I have that will be longer than the school summer holidays and I intend to embrace that by picking up some of the books on my TBR that are the ones I want to read the most. I will probably be picking most of these up while I am on holiday with my trusty Kindle. I have chosen books that I have either come out this year of books I really want to get too this summer. Fingers crossed?
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas (X)
The third book in the ACOTAR series so I won’t spoil the plot for you but this is the finale of the first half of this series. I can’t wait to finish it I love this series and I do prefer it over Throne of Glass so I will be finishing this off before I go back to the other series.
Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid (X)
This is a book that I am super excited about; I do like to read contemporary in the summer and this book seems like a winner. It focuses on Hannah and uses a concurrent storyline to see what would happen to Hannah and the effect of the decision she has to make. It looks at the idea of true love and fate and I think it will be an interesting read.
We Are Okay by Nina LaCour (X)
Another summer, another Nina LaCour novel. I read Everything Leads to You last summer and fell in love with the story, characters and LaCour’s writing. So I am super excited to delve back into LaCour’s work. This story focuses on Marin who ran away from a tragedy and her best friend Mabel to attend college in New York and now Marin has to face her past as Mabel comes to visit during winter break. I definitely want to reread Everything Leads to You but I am excited to see what else LaCour has to offer. (This is an LGBTQ+ novel)
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman (X)
So I have been watching the History Channel Show Vikings for a while now and am slightly obsessed with it and Alex Høgh Andersen so when Gaiman released this novelisation of the stories of the Norse Gods, the creation of their world and the end of it with Ragnarok. I love reading about Mythology and have a couple of other non-fiction texts of Norse Mythology which I am excited to read but I definitely want to crack this open; probably while on the plane.
Crooked Kingdoms by Leigh Bardugo (X)
While I have no inclination to read Bardugo’s other series, I love this duology! I got Six of Crows for Christmas and loved it and immediately bought the second book but I have yet to read it as I don’t want it to end. This has an almost 5-star rating on Goodreads and I will need to finish this soon! Following on from where Six of Crows left how with Kaz deal with the aftermath of the ‘impossible’ heist?
American Gods by Neil Gaiman (X)
I have started watching the Amazon Prime series and so far I love it. After a serious talk with one of my friends about the joy that is American Gods, I want to read the novel as well. I think the premise of this novel is really different and I have enjoyed other Gaiman novels. This novel centres around Shadow, who after being in Prison and having his life turned upside down by the death of his wife takes a job with the enigmatic Mr Wednesday and learns not everything is a black and white as it may seem.
