Happy summer, everyone. Hope the start of this new season if off to a grand start. Top Then Tuesday June 25 celebrates this new season, and wonders what we plan to read.
That Artsy Reader Girl | June 25: Books On My Summer 2019 TBR
As has been well established, I don’t stand by a seasonal TBR. (Pretty sure I’ve only read one book from my spring TBR, and even at that, I’m not quite done with said book.) I don’t think it’s intentional so much as in the past I fell into this rut of I-have-to-read-x-because-it’s-a-review-book. Slowly I’m breaking free from that by limiting the novels I receive for review, and either requesting or accepting those I’m as sure as I can be that I’ll enjoy. This is a practice that helps my reading life so (so) much, and is a kind of project I continue to work on each year.
But as we also establish with each new seasonal list, they’re still fun to make, and with awareness of my recovering must-read-all-the-books problem, I hope I actually will read at least a few of these during this season. (Also, I’ll share more Summer TBR books this week on the booktube channel.)
Below I’ve compiled books that are new (aka preorders that need to be on my shelf yesterday and oldie books on my shelf, because that’s a good idea methinks). Let’s get to listing those TBR books.

2: Happy Girl Lucky by Holly Smale (out now!) | Like my aforementioned booktube video, I decided to include a book on my list that’s already out in the world. This one sounds like so much fun about a trio of sister’s and the glamorous life they must navigate. Amazon | Goodreads
4: The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman (July) | Already started this one, and it’s cute, but I’m not sure what my thoughts will be. The writing style is tough to explain (almost as if a narrator is telling the story?) though I don’t know the technical writerly term for it! Amazon | Goodreads
5: Maybe This Time by Kasie West (July) | Yes I also mention this one in my booktube video (coming Thursday), but is this even a Top Ten Tuesday post if I don’t mention a Kasie West novel?? Amazon | Goodreads
