Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!
This week’s (June 25th, 2019) topic is: Books On My Summer 2019 TBR (That You Might Have Missed).
We added a little bit on the title because we felt like we’ve done this topic to death already and we didn’t feel like listing Wilder Girls and Merciful Crow one more time. We were scared you guys might throw tomatoes at us and rightfully so LOL This list is stuff we are really looking forward to that doesn’t have a ton of hype, so hopefully, you might just find something new to add to your TBR!
Containment (Sanctuary #2) by Caryn Lix
I’m lucky enough to have a physical arc of this one and I’ll be reading it next month. I’m dying to see what happens next. My friend and I are always talking about how the first book Sanctuary was shamelessly underhyped. It’s flipping fantastic and so fast-paced and fun. If you haven’t checked out the first book, seriously go get it. Also, CANADIAN AUTHOR! WOOT WOOT!
The Best Lies by Sarah Lyu
I’m cheating here because I’ve already read the arc to this one but I think it needs to be listed here. I thought this was going to be a basic YA thriller but holy shit was I wrong. This is DARK, like really freaking dark. Ever been in a toxic friendship? Well, this shows the darkest side of that and the scary thing is is this stuff happens, it’s all too real. You guys need to check this one out if you are into dark contemporary with a murder thrown in. My god, this one is dark.
Switchback by Danika Stone
I’m a sucker for survival stories and this one looks super cool. I haven’t really heard anything on this at all, but I’m super excited to sink in and see what it’s all about. I believe there is even some ace representation in this one. Also, they are surviving in the Canadian Wilderness – so as a Canadian that’s a fun plus!
Teeth in the Mist by Dawn Kurtagich
Look, horror is an all year round genre for me, you won’t see me saving all my books up for October. I’ll put a freaking horror book as a beach read LOL I’ve been DYING to read this since I knew about it. I loved Dawn’s first two books and I have very high hopes for this one. I will completely be reading this either sometime this month or in July. This even has cool, creepy pictures in it – if that is your thing!
I Love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn
I’ve seen almost no one haul this or talk about this one and I’m unsure why. It sounds freaking adorable. All I know is a young girl goes to Japan and basically just experiences everything like the marketplaces and the food and so on. It sounds like such a great summer read to me and I’m always about reading about places I’ve never been. This book is also ownvoices for the Asian representation. I bought this book earlier this month and it’s STUNNING in person. I can’t wait!
The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali by Sabina Khan
This book wasn’t really on my radar at all before I had a chance to meet the author and learn more about this book. After hearing the story behind the book I 100% want to read it. I think it’s just beautiful that this mother wanted to write a story for her queer daughter and can’t wait to dig into it.
Dear Haiti, Love Alaine by Maika Moulite & Maritza Moulite
I think this cover is stunning. When I first read the synopsis I was really intrigued. The format looks really interesting plus I love that it was written by sisters.
The Magicians Original Graphic Novel: Alice’s Story by Lilah Sturges & Lev Grossman
I am a huge fan of the Magicians series by Lev Grossman. So when I saw this graphic novel all about Alice I knew I needed it. So excited to get to this one.
This one looks absolutely fab. Plus it has an ace character which I’m always happy to see. I’m so happy that I was able to get an earc of this one and I am eager to sit down with this one
