Another season is rapidly approaching and of course, this means one thing: time to talk of the summer 2020 TBR books to read.
On my summer 2020 TBR is a collection of books yet to release and some on my shelf because I like the idea of reading “current” releases while adding in some books I already own. Helps me feel a little more accomplished even if my shelf doesn’t reflect this (because the rate at which I read vs. the new book purchase ratio is TERRIBLY lopsided).
Do I think I will read all 15 (or any??) of these? Nope.
Like always, I rarely, if ever, read the books on a TBR, but it’s still one of the most fun lists I create each new season, so… I refuse to skip out on this. Let’s get to list-ing.
SUMMER 2020 TBR LIST
(Disclosure: this post does contain affiliate links; if you buy anything through these links, I may receive a small percentage of the sale at no extra cost to you. Thank you to anyone who makes a purchase through these links. Read the disclosure page for details.)
1: The Betrothed by Kiera Cass
To be honest, I have read this book already, but I placed it on this list in my smidgeon of pre-planning, and decided to leave it because it makes me feel a tiny bit better to know I read ONE book on a planned TBR. Maybe this will inspire me to change this patter? Amazon | Goodreads
2: The Game Can’t Love You Back by Karole Cozzo
Recently watched the Freddie Prinze Jr. film Summer Catch, and while I am 100% not a sports fan, the movie is so cute. Then, seeing this book on my shelf reinforced how long its been sitting there, which made me want to read it. Amazon | Goodreads
3: Jo & Laurie by Melissa de la Cruz and Margaret Stohl (June)
Cannot wait to read this one. I’m not one for this ship per se, but I am curious to read a reality where Laurie does win over his beloved Jo, and I 100% do believe he genuinely loves her; I also find it fascinating and sad that the BBC version depicts him as still loving her post-marriage. How does the book portray him? *asks the girl who hasn’t read the novel* Amazon | Goodreads
4: Love and a Little White Lie by Tammy L. Gray (August 4)
5: It’s Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han
Not only has this one been on my shelf for a long time, but as I did read book one late year, it only seems right that I’d pick up the sequel (it’s likely too presumptuous to hope to read book three) as well. Amazon | Goodreads
6: Beach Read by Emily Henry
7: You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle
8: Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
9: In Between by Jenny B. Jones
I’ve had this ‘Katie Parker Production’ series on my shelf for quite some time now, but it’s only been recently that I realized (again) I’ve yet to read these books – and I do love a good Jenny B. Jones novel. The catalyst for this is the recent cover re-models. They’re awfully cuuute. Amazon | Goodreads
10: The London Restoration by Rachel McMillan (August)
Sounds as if this historical novel will be a lovely read; it’s about a woman who works in secrets in WWII and the impact it has on her relationships. Plus it features a favorite trope – a love story post marriage! Amazon | Goodreads
11: The Crushing Depths by Dani Pettrey (June)
12: Minutes to Die by Susan Sleeman (August 4)
13: Some Bright Someday by Melissa Tagg (August)
Perhaps in actuality I should place Melissa’s prior release (Now and Then and Always) on this list given I haven’t yet read it. *shrugs* Either way, hopefully I’ll read one of her novels this summer. Amazon | Goodreads
14: Listen to your Heart by Kasie West
This one has been on my shelf for a while now, but I’m in that weird place, torn between reading this book (which looks quintessential summer-y) and not reading it because that means I’m one (of two) book closer to not having any new novels by Kasie to discover. Amazon | Goodreads
15: Would Like To Meet by Rachel Winters
Like Sarah’s rom-com, this is another I’ve seen some good reviews on. Luckily I have it on my shelf. Plus, who doesn’t love the idea of a romance that “acts out” various iconic romantic-comedy scenes just to inspire creativity? Amazon | Goodreads
