Top Ten Tuesday | Books On My Summer 2024 TBR

Top Ten
 Tuesday is a weekly feature that highlights ten books that all relate to a certain topic and is  hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. 

This Weeks Topic Is...

Books on My Summer 2024 To-Read List! Love making these lists and getting excited about all of the summer reading that's to come. I've got a mixture of immediate library reads and physical books that I'm desperate to get to. I'm excited to get to all of these and have high hopes for them.

With the TV series airing next month, I want to get a move on with starting this series. Already considered essential reading in the YA mystery genre, I think I'm going to really enjoy this once I actually pick it up. 

Funny You Should Ask by Elissa Sussman 

I took this romance book on holiday to Paris with me but didn't end picking it up at all, I was far to busy traipsing round the city being a tourist and I was ready to drop once I got back to my hotel every night. Love that this book was inspired by the GQ Chris Evans interview from 2011!

Adelaide by Genevieve Wheeler

I get about 60% of my book recommendations at the moment from What Maddy Read on Instagram. Our reading matches up so well and her recommendations are incredible, she truly has a book for every mood and genre. So when she called this her favourite book of last year I knew I had to read it. I snagged a copy from the library last week, I just need to get to it before my hold runs out!

I spent a good hour and a half adding all of my physical books to one of those virtual wheel spinners a few weeks back, and decided to let it choose my upcoming reads. This was chosen as my next book and I'm not complaining. I love a good murder mystery, especially when it's set in an isolated retreat for writers.   

The Spectacular by Fiona Davis

My current kindle read which I started this morning. An historical mystery set in 50s New York, following a Rockette and her involvement in a series of bombings that have hit various parts of the city. I didn't want to know too much going in to this but I'm about 10% in and really liking it so far. The writing is very readable and I can't wait for the plot to fully kick in. 

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins 

I'm speeding through this series. I was worried I wouldn't enjoy it that much because I'm so familiar with the films and it's now such a classic in the genre, I thought maybe it wouldn't live up to the hype. But I'm glad I was wrong. These are modern classics for a reason. The action is really ramping up and I'm excited to finish off this trilogy and dive into the prequel. Plus Haymitch is finally having his story told in both book and film format which I'm so excited for!

The Hotel Nantucket by Elin Hildebrand 

Everyone raves about Elin Hildebrand books and how they're the perfect summer reads so when I spotted this one on Libby, I had to download it. This definitely sounds up my alley, a hotel under renovation being haunted by a past employee but with a summery romance at it's centre. 

I've been slacking when it comes to reading classics this year. I tried to read one a month but only managed January and February before reading slumps nipped that in the bud. I own all Austen's books and Emma is the one that always gets recommended as perfect for spring/summer.   

The Getaway List by Emma Lord 

My summer reading wouldn't be complete without a light, fun YA romance. This is usually filled by Morgan Matson but I still haven't got my hands on her latest YAs so I'm pivoting to this 2024 release that was on my radar and the start of the year. I love a bucket list in a book and this one sounds super sweet. 

Oscar Wars: A History of Hollywood in Gold, Sweat and Tears by Michael Schulman  

I've been on a roll with my non-fiction lately and this has been on my radar for a while but it's slightly too expensive to purchase on Amazon. But I found a copy through my library so had to get it. I love interesting topics for my non-fiction and this should be full of drama and behind the scenes gossip about the biggest night in films. 

Have you read any of these? What's on your summer TBR? Leave a comment or link your own Top Ten Tuesday's for me to check out! Happy Reading!



  1. I don't read a lot of romances (or "love stories", as I label them on my blog), but any book cover with bicycles would prompt me to take a look at it!

  2. May you enjoy all of these books!

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

  3. A GOOD GIRL'S GUIDE TO MURDER is a fun read. I didn't realize it was being made into a series, but I guess that's not surprising considering its popularity. I hope you love it and all your other picks.

    Happy TTT!

  4. I didn't even realised AGGGTM was being adapted! I will have to check that out.

  5. I loved The Hunger Games trilogy and I'm excited for Haymitch's story too!
