πŸ“š Top Ten Tuesday | Books On My Summer TBR 2021 β˜€

Top Ten TuesdayHello my fellow bookworms! Today, I am taking part in this week’s TTT topic, which is: Books On My Summer 2021 TBR. While there are many wonderful books awaiting me on my bookshelf and Kindle, here are the top ten books (mostly off my list for theΒ 10 Books of Summer Reading Challenge) that I hope to get to over the summer months of June, July and August:

β˜€ S5 Uncovered by James Durose-Rayner – A crime-thriller based around a series of true events exposed in the BBC’s PanoramaΒ programme.

β˜€ The Gilded Lily by Ernest Dudley – A biography into the life and loves of the fabulous Lily Langtry: society belle, muse and mistress to the Prince of Wales.

β˜€ A Tapestry of Treason by Anne O’Brien – An historical-fiction from one of my go-to-authors for my historical fix, it has sadly been far too long since I read my last: Queen of the North.

β˜€ The Queen of the Caribbean by Emilio Salgari – The 2nd swashbuckling adventure from the classic The Corsairs of the Antilles series.

β˜€ Thunder on the Right byΒ Mary Stewart – Another (hopefully) brilliant romantic mystery, set in the French Pyrenees, from this modern legend of suspense.

β˜€ The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley [re-read] – A beautiful time-travelling romance, where my love for this author all began.

β˜€ Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery – The children’s classic about the feisty, red-haired orphan, Anne and I know, I know, why have I not read this already?!

β˜€ Men at Arms by Terry Pratchett – The 15th book in the fantastical Discworld series and the 2nd adventure with Captain Grimes and the Night Watch, who I met and loved in Guards! Guards!

β˜€ The Curse Keepers by Denise Grover Swank – Book one in the YA urban-fantasy series Curse Keepers, with an interesting link to the Lost Colony of Roanoke.

β˜€ The Kingmaker’s Daughter by Philippa Gregory – After loving the previous books, I look forward to completing Gregory’s popular Cousins’ War series, with this: the fourth and final book.

(I have linked this post into the weekly meme, Top Ten Tuesday)

Now in the comments let me know: Have you read any of these? What books are you looking forward to reading this summer? Also please leave a link for your own TTT post.

  1. Men at Arms was the first Discworld novel I ever read, and is still among my favourites, even after getting 20 books deep into the series. I hope you enjoy it too πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Ryan – I very much looked forward to reading Men At Arms. One of my first Discworld novels was Wyrd Sisters and that is still one of my all-time favourites, too. πŸ§™β€β™€οΈ

  2. I’m currently reading my third Discworld book and enjoying it much more than 1 and 2. The introduction of Granny Weatherwax definitely helps.

  3. I went through childhood never even hearing the title Anne of Green Gables. I’m assuming it was because she was Canadian and we only ever got exposed to British authors

    1. I’d never thought of that before, Karen but now you mention it, I went my childhood only really hearing about British classics, too. Makes me feel better that I haven’t got to Anne of Green Gables sooner! 😊

    1. Glad to hear you enjoyed The Kingmaker’s Daughter – I have enjoyed the previous books, so I am looking forward to finishing the series with this. πŸ™‚

  4. I hope you’ll get to read all of the books on your list and that they’ll end up being favorites!

  5. I’ve recently saw video from Ariel Bissett and she was mentioning Lucy Maud Montgomery – Anne made her famous, but she wrote many other fiction books. After watching Ariel’s video I got interested in the Canadian author, I’m hoping to read at least one of her books this summer πŸ˜€
    This is the link of the video I mentioned, if you’re interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9wcUdoe-qw

    1. Thank you, Georgiana – This will actually be my first read of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s work and it is good to know there is plenty to explore if I enjoy it, which I am pretty sure I will! I hope you have chance to enjoy something of hers this summer, too. 😊
