Top Ten Tuesday: My Summer 2020 TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Click on the link for more info and to find out about future topics.

This week’s theme is:  Books on my Summer 2020 TBR List

Last week I featured books I’ve recently added to my TBR list, and some of those may end up on my Summer TBR pile too, but for now, here are ten more books I hope I’ll manage to read over the coming months…

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow – I’ve wanted to read this for a while now, I think it might be the one I start next once I’ve finished…

Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry – My ongoing reading project. It’s still in progress so not technically a TBR book but one that’s taking up a fair bit of my reading time at the moment so it has to have a mention.

Sanctuary by V. V. James – A death deemed a tragic accident, but rumours of witchcraft mean there could be more to it. A supernatural thriller that I hope to get around to reading soon.

Guards! Guards! By Terry Pratchett – I’m still a little undecided about whether to read the Discworld books in order or go at random but this one keeps drawing my attention so I might end up taking the at random approach.

The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty – The final book in this trilogy has just been released and I have the first two books already, so what better time to make a start?

The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman – I’ve mentioned this series before. I love the sound of the adventures of a librarian spy.

Opium and Absinthe by Lydia Kang – In 1899 New York Tillie Pembroke’s sister has been found dead. Dracula has just been published, and Tillie can’t help but wonder whether a vampire may have been involved in her sister’s death.

Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Gracia – The Jazz Age, Mexican folklore, an ancient Mayan God. Sounds like a good pick for summer reading I think.

Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver – Billed as a darkly gothic thriller, I like the sound of this, and might save it for the latter part of summer.

? – What else should I add to my TBR list?

So, have you read any of the books that made my list this week?  If so, what did you think of them? See you again next time for another Top Ten Tuesday.

    There’s no right way to read Discworld which is part of the fun! I started reading the series through all of the character Death’s novels (my favourite character). But Guards! Guards! is a fantastic read, I enjoyed all their books too. I hope you enjoy it too. Happy reading!

      Thanks 🙂 I read The Colour of Magic a while ago and definitely want to read more Discworld so I’ll probably end up reading The Light Fantastic as well, and hopefully Guards! Guards!

    Great list! I just got a copy of Opium & Absinthe too (yay for free books via Amazon) — it sounds so good! I loved Ten Thousand Doors — I hope you do too.I’ve been wanting to start Discworld for years now, and keep hesitating because of the question of where to start. I guess I should just jump in and give it a try! Hope you enjoy your summer reads. 🙂

      Thanks 🙂
      I’ve started Opium and Absinthe and what I’ve read so far has been good.
      That’s the same issue I’ve had with Discworld. I read the first one but then all these other titles keep catching my eye and I never quite decide which one to go for next 🙂

    Random can be a great way to go with Discworld. And I have a discworld reading guide on the blog if you would like something to help you figure out where you want to start. Guards! Guards! is really great though.
