Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Summer 2020 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly linkup of book bloggers hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! It's summer as of next week, and that means it's time for a seasonal update on my reading plans! There will be book club additions to this list, but here are the next ten books I'm planning on reading!



Daughter of Fortune: I can't believe I've never read Allende before!

Queen of the Tearling: My sister actually recommended this one and I think YA fantasy epic might be the kind of thing my brain would respond to really well right now.

The Borgias and their Enemies: I love drama, and the Borgias were a VERY dramatic family.

Tampa: This book about a teacher-student relationship was very buzzy several years ago, so I am very late to it but am quite curious about it.

Hidden Valley Road: I am a big psychology nerd so super excited to read this one!

Cat's Eye: I love Atwood and stories about the ups and downs of female friendship so this is something I really think I'm going to sink my teeth into.

Pope Joan: This book provides a fictional backstory for the rumored woman pope during the Dark Ages, which sounds interesting!

A Luminous Republic: A group of wild children arrive in an Argentinean city from the jungle and refuse to play by their social rules. Chaos ensues. I'm intrigued.

The Thirteenth Tale: I am a sucker for a story about storytelling and loved Setterfield's Once Upon A River.

Ivanhoe: I do like to work some classics into the rotation and I've never read this!

  1. Daughter of Fortune is gorgeous. Lush and rich with detail. It transplanted me right to the past without making me feel like I was in a history lecture. I can't recommend Allende enough! I hope it's a good read for you.

  3. The Thirteenth Tale! Man, I loved that book. You're making me want to re-read it! I hope you enjoy it.

  4. I really liked Cat’s Eye. The depiction of bullying was very close to what I experienced as a kid. I need to read The Thirteenth Tale too. I hope you love these books!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  5. I'm jealous that you'll be reading The Thirteenth Tale for the first time! I also really liked Tampa, but it's definitely not for everyone. I'll be curious to hear what you think of it. Hidden Valley Road is on my list too - it sounds fascinating!

    1. Tampa seems like it inspires strong feelings! A lot of people whose book opinions I respect seem to have appreciated it so I hope I will too!
