The Broke and the Bookish is celebrating five years of Top Ten Tuesdays. I have only done thirty-six of them so far, but I have enjoyed this meme a lot over the past few months. Here are some of my favorite topics.
I have a stack of books begging me to read them this summer. Some are light and breezy some are a little bit heavier. And, for the first time ever, I will get to read on an airplane. I'm all kinds of excited about that. The last time I rode on a plane I had a two year old, and didn't even think about reading. She is now thirteen. That's how much I get out. Here are some books I am hoping to get to during the summer months.
I'm really excited about these. I have several new to me authors on the list. Check out more top ten posts at The Broke and the Bookish.
My reading has slowed down a little lately. I have been struggling to find books that really hold my attention. I also have a growing stack of books that I have been saving for the summer months that I am itching to read. Maybe I should just go ahead and get my summer reading under way. It's certainly hot enough already. Here are a few books that enjoyed and am currently enjoying.
I loved the WW1 story line. The contemporary story line was good too, but wanting to find out what happened to Sophie was what kept me going. Not the greatest duel timeline book I have read, but still very good.
I am pleasantly surprised by how much I am enjoying this one. There's lots of action and political intrigue. It is YA, but it reads well. I don't feel like I'm being talked down to like some YA novels. It has really complicated love story as well.
I'm only a few chapters into this one. I'll devote my full attention to it when I'm finished with The Winner's Curse. This is a big, creepy house story, and I love big, creepy house stories.
This is my nonfiction for June. I'm reading a chapter a day. It is a little deeper than I thought it would be, which is nice.
I'm reading this one at the gym, so it's going to take a while. I love the writing style and the small town WW2 setting, but the characters are rubbing me the wrong way.
Why am I waiting? I read this series years ago. I'm pretty sure it went out of print. Enclave has brought them back, and they are releasing book four. I'm so excited. There were so many potential story lines at the end of book three. I have already pre-ordered this one.
I did a most anticipated books of 2015 post at the beginning of the year. Most of those books have already been released, and some of them have already been read. here are ten books I'm looking forward to in the second half of the year.
I think I have read all of Carla Stewart's books so far, and this is one of my favorites. I loved the heroine and her dedication to flying. She was very adventurous and headstrong with out being annoying. The romance took a backseat to the adventures that Mittie went on to pursue her dream of becoming an aviatrix. I learned a lot about the early days of aviation and also about horse showing which was Mittie's other passion. I would highly recommend this book to fans of historical fiction and romance. It was lots of fun.
I received a free copy for the purpose of review from Netgalley and Faithwords.
