Top Ten Tuesday #9

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR list.


This is a hard one for mew, as I just pick up whatever, whenever. Also, a lot of my summer reading is re-reads of old favourites that I know are prefect for reading in that good old English summer rain. So here goes, in no particular order as usual...
  1. Goose by Dawn O'Porter
  2. This Northern Sky by Julia Green
  3. Pirates! by Celia Rees
  4. Peace Weavers by Julia Jarman
  5. Acid by Emma Pass
  6. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
  7. Secrets of the Henna Girl by Sufiya Ahmed 
  8. The Dead House by Anne Cassidy
  9. The Castle by Sophia Bennett
  10. Entangled by Cat Clarke
Oh look, it's all UKYA again. Whoopsie! (But not really, cause UKYA rocks!)

    1. I'm listening to it now, it's fantastic. The narrator has the most gorgeous Scottish burr and I could listen to her forever. Thank you Sync!

  12. I really need to get my hands on Code Name Verity, it sounds amazing! There's a very special place in my heart for Celia Rees; she was the author who first got me into historical fiction during my early teens, in fact Pirates! was the first novel of hers that I read. :) I hope you enjoy it!

    1. Pirates! is a re-read :) I read it about 10 years ago for the North East Teenage Book Awards and if you saw my copy you'd probably be disgusted at the state of it! It's been passed around and read so many times the cover is peeling off and pages are about to fall out.
