This week’s topic is Books on My Summer 2024 To-Read List and this is a mixture of books I’m currently reading that I’m hoping to finish over the coming weeks, and books at the very top of my TBR

Firstly, books I’m determined to finish this summer:

Heather Fawcett – Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries
Emily Henry – Book Lovers
Ronald Hutton – The Stations of the Sun: A History of the Ritual Year in Britain
Sarah J. Maas – A Court of Wings and Ruin
Matthew Reilly – Scarecrow

And for the books I’m looking to start reading this summer:

Ben Aaronovitch – False Value
K.C. Davis – How to Keep House While Drowning: A Gentle Approach to Cleaning and Organising
Evie Meg – My Nonidentical Twin
Rick Riordan – Percy Jackson & The Last Olympian
Erin Sterling – The Kiss Curse

Will I actually get to any of these? who knows!

What’s on your summer TBR?

Books With Weather-Related Titles

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.

This week’s topic doesn’t appeal to me, so I’m picking one from a couple of weeks ago that I missed: Books with Weather Events/Words in the Title/on the Cover
(I’m picturing a list of titles with weather-related words in them like storm, rain, blizzard, flood, lightning, hail, snow, wind, etc. OR covers with lightning/storms in the picture.)


Matthew Reilly – Ice Station
Carlos Ruiz Zafón – The Shadow Of The Wind
Cecilia Ahern – Where Rainbows End
Stephen King – The Mist
Richard Castle – Heat Wave


Barbara Sophia Tammes – A Blueprint for Your Castle in the Clouds
Guy de la Bédoyère – Gods with Thunderbolts
Sally Malcolm – Permafrost
Rick Riordan – Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief
Jaimie Admans – Snowflakes At The Little Christmas Tree Farm

That was legit a lot harder than I thought it would be. I figured I’d have read loads of books with storm, thunder, or lightning in the title but no! I did have fun scrolling through 13 years of GoodReads books read though!
