Top Ten Tuesday : Summer reading


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic :

Books On My Summer 2021 TBR

Okay, in my particular neck of the woods Summer runs from June 21st until September 22nd – yes, I looked those dates up and I literally cannot believe they are so specific!  But, having found them out I feel like I should stick to those dates.  So, this week is going to be more than 10 books – because I have quite a few books on my plate this Summer that I’m excited to share that fall in between these dates.  Here goes, all titles linked to Goodreads so you can check out the synopsis:
