Top Ten Tuesday Eleven

Top ten books I plan to have in my beach bag this summer

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/feature hosted by The Broke and Bookish.  After not participating in this for a while now, I decided that this topic was a perfect one to get me back into it, as it was one I knew I could create a pretty healthy list for, and one which I would enjoy making.  So, here are my top ten books which I plan to have in my beach bag this summer:

1) Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins - Having read Anna last year whilst on holiday, I can't seem to bring myself to finish the series before summer this year, simply to end it the way I started it.  But, you can be assured, that as soon as I can, I will reading this in a heartbeat.

2) The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith - Contemporaries and romances are always a must to read over the summer, so this is which I will definitely be picking up when the sun is out.

3) The Midnight Palace by Carlos Ruiz Zafon - This is another book which, despite wanting to read so badly, I can't seem to do so until the holidays again, as this was when I first read The Prince of Mist by Zafon two years ago.

4) The Disrespectable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart - After reading We Were Liars last year, I can say that I love E. Lockhart's writing style and books in general, so I can't wait to pick this one up this summer.

5) Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan - Despite not usually being the type of book I would read this summer, I am almost certain that this one will be in my beach bag this summer as I am really excited to continue the series with this fourth installment.  

6) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell - This is another contemporary which I am definitely planning to finally get round to reading this summer, after having sat on my bookshelf for too long now.  

7) The Mortal Instruments:City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare - Due to the length of this one, it is extremely likely that I will hold off reading this till summer, when I will almost certainly have to time to continue this series and give this book my full attention. 

8) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling - I can't believe that I am still yet to read this series, having so far only read the first book, so I determined to continue it and read this one in the summer.


  1. Ooh have fun with the fourth Percy Jackson and the second Harry Potter. The fourth one is possibly my favourite Percy Jackson, so I hope you enjoy it. The second Harry Potter is probably my least favourite, but that's not because of the book really, it's because of a certain phobia of mine!

  2. Oh thanks good to know that the fourth percy Jackson is a good one, especially as I've really been enjoying the series so far! Also thanks for checking out my list!
