Books on My Summer 2020 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Top Ten Tuesday was an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week we will post our Top Ten of the selected theme.

This week’s theme is: Books on My Summer 2020 TBR

The books on my summer 2020 TBR are really just the books that I hope to read this August. This summer, I’m going to be super busy with school work, at least until August. After school is finished I will have about a month to find a place to live and shove as much reading into my days as possible. These are the 5 books on my summer 2020 TBR.

Frankenstein
by Mary Shelley

So technically, this is supposed to be read for a class I’m taking, but it’s a classic and has been on my TBR for a long time—two birds, one stone.

Get a Life, Chloe Brown
by Talia Hibbert

The premise of this romance and the cover seem adorable. I actually bought this book at Christmas, and it has been sitting on my shelf, dying to be read.

Hemingway At War
by Terry Mort

I recently watched the movie Hemingway and Gellhorn with Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen and became very interested in both of their lives. This book just happened to be on sale. Plus, there is something about the summer that screams biography for me. Maybe it’s the ability to read poolside; even the driest books become entertaining.

A Canticle for Leibowitz
by Walter M Miller Jr.

I read this book for a class (Apocalyptic Science Fiction) but never got around to it. So I’m going to read it this summer. It’s a story about what we leave behind and how it is interpreted.

The Beekeeper’s Apprentice
by Laurie R. King

This book was an assigned reading that was taken off the list. It’s about a retired Sherlock Holmes, who wouldn’t want to see what the great detective is up to in retirement.

    Required reading can be the pits. Oh well, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! Hopefully, you’ll be able to sneak in a book or two that you want to read this summer.

    Happy TTT!

      That’s the plan, though right now I just want to curl into a ball and cry. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some fun reading in

    I’ve only read Frankenstein from your list. I did just order Chloe Brown though, so I’m excited about that one!

      I hope so I’m really nervous to read it, I have the impression that it’s scary.
