Books I Want to Read – Summer 2017

Like most folks on GoodReads, I have a never ending list of “to read” books. I’m taking a page post out of Alexandra‘s and Kelly‘s blogs and rattling off a few novels I want to tackle this summer.

Hopefully a few of these fall in line with Erin‘s next challenge, too! That starts July 1st so I have a little break between now and then to tackle as many of these books as I can!

Yes Please (Amy Poehler).
I added this to my bookshelf in July 2015, then I received it as a gift this year for Valentine’s Day. I enjoyed Tina’s and Mindy’s books so I’m looking forward to this one, too.

The Heir & The Crown (Kiera Cass).
Two separate books- numbers 4 and 5 in The Selection series. I’ve made it this far… I might as well finish out the series.

Scarlet (A.C. Gaughen).
I believe Alexandra put this on my radar a few month ago (er, maybe a year ago?). Either way… I’m putting it at the top of the list.

The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well (Meik Wiking).
Everyone’s reading it sooo… I want to, too.

The Wrath & The Dawn (Renee Ahdieh).
I’m going to finally attempt to link-up with Carolann‘s monthly GoodReads book club. This is the May book.

The Sisters Brothers (Patrick deWitt).
Erin sent me this book a few weeks ago and I’m dying to start it! That cover is so intriguing!

Three Dark Crowns (Kendare Blake).
I’ve heard good things about this book and it’s got a nice mix of royalty and fantasy. Those two genres are usually right up my alley.

Either Throne of Glass or A Court of Thorns and Roses (Sarah J. Maas).
Any recommendations on which I should start?

Help me out with the Maas books. And tell me what you’re planning on reading this summer!

  1. I have so many books on my to-read list! Current plan is to try and get through some of the ones I already own before Erin’s next challenge starts (and hope the rest can be fit into the categories!). So finish Sophie’s World, read the last two books in the Lying Game series and then I have a book called Silence is Goldfish that I can’t wait to start!


  2. These look like great summer picks! I’ve heard really good things about The Wrath and the Dawn and the A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy. Happy reading. 🙂


  3. Oh gosh. So many of these books are on my TBR as well. I love the cover to The Sisters and Brothers and put it on my TBR after Erin reviewed it sometime last year. The Wrath of the Dawn, Three Dark Crowns and Scarlett are also on my TBR. Too many great books and too little time! I fully expected to love Throne of Glass but found it rather meh so I’ve been hesitant to read any of Maas’ other books.


  4. I haven’t read any of these yet but a few are on my list! I also loved the Mindy book I read, so Amy’s is definitely on my radar! Also, apparently I am on a first name basis with celebs… hahaha.


  5. I was JUST talking to someone about Yes Please and they said they listened to the audiobook and Amy Poehler reads it herself. It’s definitely on my list too bc Leslie Knope is my girl crush 😉


  6. I really enjoyed Yes, Please. I did it on audio and it was awesome hearing her read the book herself. Haven’t heard of most of the rest of these so I will have to check them out!


  7. I really want to read that Hygge book too, which I say anytime I see someone talk about it, but never look into actually getting a copy of it, haha. The Wrath and the Dawn was sooo good- so far outside of my usual reading preferences, but I loved the writing and the story so much!


  8. i have “yes please” on my reading list too! (problem is i have like 38,675 books on my list with it haha) i just got Bossypants from a thrift store & was super excited (i know i’m wayyyy behind the times!)
    have you enjoyed the selection series? i love finding book series b/c i get super invested and never want the story to end!


  9. This looks like a great summer list! I liked Yes Please better than Tina and Mindy’s books, even though they all have a great sense of humor.


  10. The first thing I noticed was how PRETTY all these book covers are. I’ve read Yes Please and it wasn’t my thing, I think I’m just not a person who enjoys reading books written by comedians? I’m sure you’ll like it, since I’m definitely in the minority!


  11. I haven’t read ANY of those yet and they all look really good. I think I started The Selection series ages ago but I’d have to restart, it’s been so long. Scarlet looks interesting. Hygge I definitely want to check out – I think it’s been on my list a while. I’m checking out all the others, too!
