As always, TTT is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is the top ten books on your summer reading list!
I’m so stoked for this one now that it’s officially summer for me!
1) The Night Eternal by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan: This is the third and final book in their Strain Trilogy. This is vampire horror/thriller at its finest. Once I finish this book, I’m going to do a series review. I read the first book in the series right when I got home for Christmas and the second one mostly in the hospital over Spring Break.
2) The History of Love by Nicole Krauss: I’ve heard nothing but praise and great things about this one. I recently picked up a copy at the used bookstore.
3) A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin: ‘Nuff said.
4) Matched by Ally Condie: This is was on my Spring Break reading list, but I still haven’t gotten to it.
5) The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: Pretty behind the trend on this one, but I’m excited to read it.
6) 11/22/63 by Stephen King: Summer is the time for chunksters! This will actually be my first Stephen King novel.
7) IQ84 by Haruki Murakami: First Murakami novel though I have a couple on my shelves.
8) The Revisionists by Thomas Mullen: Dystopian literary thriller. Sign me up.
9) The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma: Victorian London + History + Literature + Time Travel + H.G. Wells
10) The Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons: Sequel to Hyperion. Despite what I’ve heard about the rest of the series, I’m still excited to read the rest. I’m a definite completeist. And I just started this one last night!
Definitely going to add 11/22/63 by Stephen King go by Book list of Rebellion – apparently it’s very good! Already got 1Q84 on there 🙂 Rivisionists sounds good – may have to add that too! AHHHH i’m never going to finish the reading challenge I’m supposed to be doing!
It’s June Follower Appreciation Month!! Lol
Hey Shannon, I just wanted to take a Moment to Say Thank You for all that you Contribute to “The Dark Globe”… Bringing you on definitely Upped the Level of Quality Content on the Site… And I’m Glad you Joined us
I’ve read numbers 3, 5, & 9. All really great books! #3: I’ll stick with your comment “nuff said”. #5: My favorite book this year. #9 Very interesting! (I have reviews posted on my blog for both Night Circus and Map of Time…I read the Ice and Fire books before I started blogging, so I don’t have any reviews posted about them). And I have numbers 6 & 7 on my Goodreads To Read list. 🙂
I’m also going to Read a “A Storm of Swords” this Summer… My Brother’s supposed to be sending it to me, as he wants to read it with me… We watch “Game of Thrones”, and he’s read the First Two (I have not), but we’ve decided not to wait for Season 3…
Really looking forward to it, it’s a Brilliant Series
I agree! Sorry I haven’t been doing much on the Dark Globe 😦 How would you feel if I did a post on Live-Reading Etiquette? I had an experience tonight that made me realize that people might need a guide book on how to be nice and not be rude to the other readers haha
Ha, That’d be Great
Truth is Shannon, You can Write about anything you want on “The Dark Globe”, Your Mind is a Wondrous Thing, Lol
And your Passion for all things Writing is Contagious… I would love to see more and different things from you…
But if you start to Spread Your Wings on the Site, I’ll probably have to go ahead and make you a “Senior Writer”… Which of course means, Better Parking, and Bragging Rights, Lol
