Top Ten Tuesday | My Summer 2021 TBR

This week's theme is all about the books on our summer TBR! This is a bit of a weird time for me as right now it's actually really, really chilly where I am living right now.

Like literally, it's a curl up in the blankets, watch the rain, drink hot tea, and read a book sort of mood!

With this in mind, it's a little hard to think of any summer reading as such. This is just going to be a list of books on my TBR.

Top Ten Tuesday | My Summer 2021 TBR
Books I plan to read this summer
  1. Long Bright River by Liz Moore - I recently watched Mare of Easttown and loved it. I have been told that this book is kind of similar to the show, and so I just have to read it.
  2. Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi - I have always been meaning to read something by this author. I missed Persepolis when it was first published. Now, I wanna read both these books and understand why these books are so much loved.
  3. The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel - This was on my Winter TBR, but I never got around to it. I am in the mood for a long literary read, and I think this will be it.
  4. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo - I ignored all the hype over this book series when it came out. I was a bit over Fantasy then. But now that the Netflix series is here, I thought I'd read/binge-watch this series.
  5. Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir - I have liked both his books. His science fiction is light and accessible. And also very enjoyable!
  6. The Duke and I by Julia Quinn - Again, this is because of Bridgerton on Netflix. I haven't seen the series. My first impression of Julia Quinn's writing is not very good. So, I am not sure if I will actually get to this book. Let's see.
  7. My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell - I am adding a little something dark to my TBR to offset some of the lighter reads above.
  8. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara - More dark, dreary, and depressing. Maybe it's too much considering I am already a little depressed by all this Covid that has pretty much ruined our summer here.
  9. The Twentieth Wife by Indu Sundaresan - This book about the Moghul Emperor Jahangir's twentieth and last wife Noor Jahan has been on my shelf for ages. I can never read enough about the Moghuls. And so, this is on my summer TBR.
  10. Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House by M.C.Beaton - Ticking off the cozy mystery checkbox with this one from the Agatha Raisin series 😊.

What books are you looking to read? Which books on my TBR would you recommend I read first, any you would suggest I drop?
