Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer
It's already Tuesday - it doesn't seem like it! This Memorial Day weekend really through me off. Thanks to all those who served. Anyways, the theme this week for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Books I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer or Books I Think Make Great Beach Reads. I don't really have a "beach bag" or even go to the beach for that matter, I'm taking the first option. The books on this list are all books I plan to read this summer. Here we go, in alphabetical order:
All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka - I watched the movie adaptation Edge of Tomorow: Live Die Repeat with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt not too long and it was awesome. If the book has a fraction of that awesomeness it would still be great!
Cold Days by Jim Butcher - This is the fourteenth installment of The Dresden Files, one of my favorite urban fantasy series. I've just picked up this one and the next one, Skin Game, in paperback and I can't wait to continue Harry's adventure, especially since that ending in Ghost Story!
Downfall by Rob Thurman - This is the ninth installment of the Cal Leandros series, another one of my favorites of the urban fantasy genre. This series just keeps getting better and I can't wait to see where Thurman goes here!
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir - I just picked this new YA fantasy a short time ago and I'm interested in seeing what all the fuss is about.
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke - I've head so many amazing things about this novel and I must admit the trailer for the tv show looks absolutely brilliant! I have to read this before I watch the show.
The Quantum Thief by Hannu Rajaniemi - This sounds like the best kind of weird. And, just look at that cover!
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard - I fully expect to love this!
A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin - I need to continue this series!
Tricked by Kevin Hearne - This urban fantasy series is quickly becoming one of my favorites as well and I can't wait to see what's next for Atticus O'Sullivan here in the fourth installment of The Iron Druid .
Unbound by Jim C. Hines - I have enjoyed the Magic Ex Libris series so much - as I librarian myself I get quite a kick out of it!
What do you think of my list? Have you read, or want to read any of these books? Until next Tuesday!
