PLAYING THAT TBR GAME AGAIN! A HAPPY SUMMER 2021 TBR LIST

by 

Hey, everyone! It’s been a while since I chatted with you, and I missed book conversation. It’s impossible to believe, but this past weekend, it hit me that we’re already halfway through June and next week is Father’s Day. I was in such surprise that I tried to mentally convince myself that I was wrong, there was another weekend before dad’s day. Of course there isn’t, but that didn’t stop me from being all panic-y! Also right around the corner is that first day of summer, which means this week is appropriate to chat about the summer 2021 TBR book list I hope (stressing hope) to possibly read.

LIST | 12 OF THE MEMORABLE & PRETTY MOVIE WEDDING SCENES

As usual, the likelihood of my reading all of these (for a summer reading plan) is slim. Perhaps more so now since I’m simply not reading much; I didn’t think I could read less than I do… but guys, let me tell you, I can. So, with that knowledge staring at me, I don’t see much specific summer TBR reading in my future, but hey, girl can still dream. Let’s meet some of the stories I’d ideally like to read, shall we?

SUMMER 2021 TBR BOOK LIST

1: SHADOW AND BONE, LEIGH BARDUGO

Never did read this ergo I haven’t seen the series. Figured I’d add it in here (from the spring TBR) just because MAYBE I’ll make time to try it. This may not be one I get through because I’m not a fantasy fiction reader. Goodreads

2: THE BETRAYED, KIERA CASS (JUNE 29)

I’ll quite simply have to read the conclusion to Cass’ royalty duo. I was a little disappointed in book one because it read SO much like The Selection, but hey, they’re still my guilty pleasure reads (which I mean much differently that most use it as) and I’m so going to read book two! Goodreads

3: WELL PLAYED, JEN DELUCA

As I’m reading Well Met now, it seems a good time to add book two to my list of books to read during the summer months. Plus, who doesn’t love a good summer contemporary! Goodreads

4: MOMENTS LIKE THIS, ANNA GOMEZ & KRISTOFFER POLAHA

I’ve been excited about this book for a while now. (I like Kristoffer as a frequent Hallmark Channel leading man.) I don’t know much about the book (it has good Amazon reviews), but it sounds interesting and of course, I finally just ordered it with a Bookshop.org order that I try to convince myself is for Father’s Day gifts.

5: WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE SUMMER, JENNY HAN

Read books one and two, so now it’s time to complete the trilogy with the final novel. Plus, I’m curious about the upcoming Prime TV series based on the novels. Goodreads

6: PEOPLE WE MEET ON VACATION, EMILY HENRY

Don’t love Emily’s debut, but this one has such a cute (like book one!) cover with all the bright colors and I love a good summer-y beach read that I did pick up a copy. Now all I have to discover is if I’ll like it more (or less) than her first novel. Goodreads

7: TWICE SHY, SARAH HOGLE

I’d really like to read this one by Sarah sooner than later. I have mixed feelings for her debut novel, so I’d like to read this one and see what it’s like. Goodreads

8: LAST CHANCE BOOKS, KELSEY RODKEY

Gotta’ tell you, any book that has a book store setting makes me curious! Goodreads

9: SUNKISSED, KASIE WEST

I mean, is there currently a better book to have on our summer TBRs than this by Kasie West? It’s a contemporary and with its Sunkissed title I think it qualifies as the quintessential read! Goodreads

10: A TASTE FOR LOVE, JENNIFER YEN

Another one that seems ideal summer-time reading! Plus, if my memory serves me, I think this has some sort of modern Austen vibe, too. Goodreads

Your turn! Fill up the comments (I missed chatting!) with all of your summer TBR plans. What are you hoping to read? Anything you’re super excited for; are they new releases or books on your shelf (like me)? Are you going to read a specific genre or a variety? Comment all of your thoughts.

  1. I got Sunkissed from my library, and I’m also excited to read John Eyre by Mimi Matthews, Brides and Brothers by Anneka Walker, and Provenance by Carla Laureano.

    1. SO many reading love Mimi’s books. I haven’t read them but then as I’m not a historical fiction addict, they might not be books I’d love. Hope you enjoy Sunkissed and everything on your list!! :) Thanks for visiting, Heidi; always fun to chat with you.

    1. Good to know, Leah! Thanks for saying so. Hopefully I’ll enjoy it as it’s one I’ve been saying I should read for a long time now. :D Thanks for the visit.

    1. Hi, Cindy! Hope you enjoy your ARC list. :) I used to have SO many of those, but have since tried to curtail my requesting. Always a struggle to read those books whether from our shelves or publishers. Appreciate your visit.

    1. I’m quite curious too, but I like to read the book first (or else I never do) and I haven’t read book one yet! We’ll see if I get there. :) Thanks for the visit, Greg.

  2. I loved People We Met on Vacation but Beach Read was also my favorite book of 2020, so I’m probably not much help there. Haha! I finally read the Shadow and Bone series last year and while I enjoyed it, I loved Six of Crows more. I think I enjoyed the adaptation better than the Shadow and Bone books. I hope you can get to some of these! <3

    1. Thanks, Dedra; I hope so too! I really want to try and read a Leigh Bardugo book and my “rule” is to read the book before adaptation, so if I skip that step, I likely won’t read it. Appreciate you stopping by!! :)
