Top Ten Tuesday: Summer 2022 Reading List

I know what you’re thinking – Cassie is actually posting a Top Ten Tuesday on an actual Tuesday?! I know, I’m as shocked as you are. 

But, I have to admit that this week’s topic of Books Set In a Place I’d Love to Visit (real places or fictional) didn’t inspire me so I went back through the list of the ones I’ve missed over the last couple of months and decided on Books On My Summer 2022 To-Read List

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.

Mira Grant – Symbiont & Chimera
Peter Ackroyd – History Of England: Foundation
Natalie J Case – Thanátou
Alexandria Bellefleur – Written In The Stars
Kerry O Ferris & Scott R Harris – Stargazing: Celebrity, Fame, and Social Interaction

Matt Haig – The Dead Father’s Club

    1. I found Parasite to be completely unputdownable, read it in one sitting. Symbiont isn’t quite to the same level but I suspect I’ll have read it in a couple days (and, tbh, if I’d started it on a weekend day, it would likely have been a single sitting too!).

      I wish I’d read her books sooner, I’m in LOVE!

    1. It’s a bit heavy reading at times, but absolutely fascinating. I went there a few years ago and wish I’d read the book before I’d gone!

  1. Pompeii also fits the topic for today, LOL! I have not read these authors, but I have one on my TBR list from Matt Haig that I want to read.

    1. That it does, and I really want to go back to Pompeii and explore it properly. I was there in 2018, but my mobility was super poor and I was using my wheelchair… it’s not wheelchair friendly LOL and I managed to completely wreck the treads on my tires. Still bloody loved it though!

    1. Thank you – I’m loving Symbiont and Foundation already, and Anne Rice is a forever love so I’m looking forward to some good reading days ahead

    1. I adore the cover – I’ve never heard of the author before but the cover caught my eye when I was scrolling through the latest books my library has in on Libby. I didnt’ even stop to read the blurb, checked it out based on cover alone!

    1. I’ve read both Lestat and Lucy Sullivan before, but the rest are new to me – although mostly familiar authors so I kind of know what I’m getting into

    1. I seem to be working my way through Bryson’s back catalogue this year – I’ve already read two, and there are actually two of his on my TBR (Troublesome Words and Shakespeare). I am definitely recommending him, he’s got a great voice and a wonderful snarky sense of humour
