Top Ten Tuesdays: Top ten books on my ‘to be read’ for Summer 2015

Hello readers and welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday post from yours truly. This Tuesday’s Top Ten from, the Broke and the Bookish is a top ten books on my ‘TBR’ for summer 2015. My summer reads are often books I  would not normally read. So these are the books I would love to finally get read, and reviewed for you wonderful readers.

 WILD BY CHERYL STRAYED

I have seen the trailer for the film of this book and it looks utterly wonderful. The book follows Cheryl Strayed who aged twenty-six believes she has lost everything. In the wake of a number of life destroying events she makes the impulsive decision to walk eleven-hundred miles in the hope of piecing her life back together.

THE ART OF ASKING BY AMANDA PALMER

This book teaches that learning that it’s okay to ask for help can be the most difficult but most important lesson to learn. I have seen so many brilliant comments about this book  I need to read a copy. Also, cover = stunning.

NEVER LET ME GO, BY KAZUO ISHIGURO

Buzzfeed names this as ‘The ultimate dystopian love story. If it doesn’t make you cry, your heart may be made of stone.’ I tend to find out if my heart is made of stone.

READY PLAYER ONE, BY ERNEST CLINE

Not only a stunning cover but also a  dystopian action/adventure which I am sure will lead me on a tale of brilliance.

    Mindy Kaling’s book is super cute. And one story in it holds the record for the hardest I have ever laughed while reading a memoir. Definitely worth a read.

    I read “Ready Player One” just last month. It was truly an enjoyable book with a lot of adventure going on and what not. You’re in for a thrill ride.

  3. Katie Cross says:

    I own “Wild” and can’t wait to read it. My uncle read it and loved it, then gave it to me, and I just haven’t gotten around to it yet! *face palm* One of these days I will!
