Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is Top Ten books that will be in my beach bag this summer. I am very much looking forward to the summer holidays and all the reading I will be doing, so this list is basically my to read list. Although I had trouble limiting myself to only ten books… Anyway, here is my list!
1. Missing Joseph by Elizabeth George
This is the 6th book in the Inspector Lynley series, which I’m slowly making my way through. My parents own all the books, so every once in a while I take another one home with me.
2. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
I’ve just finished reading Paper Towns, which I really enjoyed, so I’m looking forward to reading more.
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I’ve been reading a lot about this book for ages, and my father’s just read it and keeps saying how wonderful it is and how I should read it. So I shall!
4. My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
This summer it will be three years ago I bought this book, so it’s definitely time to read it..!
5. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Just bought this one (see my previous post) and can’t wait to read it!
6. The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer
Same goes for this one, actually.
7. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
And this one! I’ve never read The Hunger Games and thought I should join in the madness!
8. Sheer Mischief by Jill Mansell
This is another book that’s been on my shelf for 3 years, and Jill Mansell novels are always perfect summe reads!
9. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
I’m slowly rerere(etc.)reading the Harry Potter series and am looking forward to reading the Half-Blood Prince again. It’s been a while!
10. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
Bought this one a while back, but still have to read it.
And that’s my Top Ten Books That Will Be In My Beach Bag! Any specific books you’re going to read this summer?

I haven’t read the Hunger Games series either. My eyes bugged out when I saw HP. But then it was like whew! You are rereading it. Lol.
Here is my list if you want to check it out: http://booksaz.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/ten-books-that-will-be-in-my-beach-bag-this-summer/
Haha, I’m sorry for (initially) shocking you! I love the Harry Potter series, I grew up on them and they’re still among my favourite novels. 🙂
You have two of my favorite books of all time on your list – An Abundance of Katherines and The Book Thief. I have read each of those multiple times, and I don’t get to re-read very often.
Now I’m even more eager to read them! 🙂 They’ve both been on my to read list for a while, hopefully I’ll actually get round to them this summer!
The Hunger Games is the book that really got me into reading and blogging! I Hope you absolutely love it! The series in general is just so mind-bending and intriguing. I haven’t read An Abundance of Katherine’s either, so I hope you enjoy it! My favorite John Green book would have to be Looking for Alaska.

I’m curious to read it! I bought Catching Fire and Mockingjay right away as well, so I better like it, haha! Looking For Alaska is really wonderful as well, but my favourite John Green novel is The Fault in Our Stars 🙂
An Abundance of Katherines is one of my favorite Green books. The Book Thief is one of those books that will make you cry, but it’s somehow hopeful, even when it’s sad.
I can’t wait to read both of those! I really hope I’ll get round to them this summer. 🙂
You will love The Book Thief! The Hunger Games is also a great book for summer. I’m interested in The Rosie Project and The Shock of the Fall. Sounds like a good reading list for summer!
I’m very much looking forward to reading a lot this summer! Hopefully I’ll get around to all of these books 🙂
Your father is right! The book thief is still one of my favorite books. It’s such a beautiful story 🙂 THG is a great book for summer. It reads incredibly fast. HP is always good, haha. Happy reading!
Thank you! I’m looking forward to reading all these books. 🙂 And HP is always good, indeed!
