Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR

I'm linking up with That Artsy Reader Girl for another Top Ten Tuesday.

It's time to plan my reading for the next quarter! I'm happy to say that I got through everything on my Spring TBR list. That might be a first for me. Here's what I'm hoping to read this summer!

1. Enchanter's End Game by David Eddings
I'm almost done with my reread of the Belgariad! This is the fifth and final book in the series. I'm going to take a break before I start on the Malloreon series and tackle one of the other series on my 2018 goals instead.

2. The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson
I tried this on Kindle and was too bored to stay engaged with the story. I'm going to give it another go on audio and see if I like it better.

3. Raising Your Spirited Child by Mary Sheedy Kurchinka
This book has been on my radar for a while, but now I think it's time I actually read it as a parent.

4. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I've seen people recommending this series for forever, and I told a friend who was looking to use up Audible credits that people seemed to like it, so he just started listening to it. I figure it's as good a time as any to read it myself.

5. Redefining Realness by Janet Mock
Mock now has a second well-rated book out, so it's high time I got around to reading her first one!

6. Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
This is on my TBR list and will be the July read for one of my book clubs.

7. The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman
This is one that's been on my TBR list for a while and I see it recommended on a regular basis. I had the opportunity to hear Anne Fadiman speak a few years ago and am looking forward to finally reading this book.

8. Talking Across the Divide by Justin Lee
I frequently recommend Lee's first book, Torn, and he's finally releasing a second one later this summer!

9. We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler
Another of my book clubs just chose this as our next read on my nomination. It's one of my favorites, but it's been long enough that I need to reread it. I'm going to try it on audio this time.

10. The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon
This is another book that I hear recommended frequently and it's been on my TBR list for quite a while. It's time!

What will you be reading this summer?
