Top Ten Tuesday: Summer 2022 TBR

Hey y’all! Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish question idea that was originally created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, from way back in June 2010! Since January 2018, Top Ten Tuesday has been hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Thanks for taking it over! The idea is to make a list of ten books or bookish things on different topics each week. Check out her site for details on how to join and what the upcoming prompts are. ๐Ÿ˜Š You can also see all the posts from other bloggers linked on each weekly post on their main site.

This week’s prompt is the Summer 2022 TBR. I don’t usually do seasonal TBRs, and yet I actually kind of already have this with the 20 (well, 15) books of summer sign up! challenge. PLUS next week’s prompt is releases in the latter half of the year, so I guess I’ll exclude those from this list as well or else I’ll have 3 identical lists. Anyway. xD

the books

the reasons

  • The Mirror Season: A gift from Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense in the recent wish list TTT โ™ฅ Thanks!! This was a Fast Forward Friday book a while back ๐Ÿ™‚
  • A Vow So Bold and Deadly: the last book in a series I forgot about but enjoyed. Also works for my alphabet challenge V word for 2022!
  • In Light of Recent Events: This sounds funny and silly and I just want to read it. It’s a bit of a risk but I have high hopes!
  • Daughter of the Moon Goddess: who hasn’t been planning to read this one for months? And I know at least a few others also haven’t read it yet. I have it from the library, so now’s my chance xD
  • Not So Pure and Simple: I found this one through BookBub, and it just sounds delightful! I don’t read much by male authors or with male main characters so I’m trying to expand that
  • The Spanish Love Deception: I could go for some fake dating in Spain, sure! I’m on a fake-dating kick right now (thanks a lot, Ali Hazelwood...)
  • The House of the Spirits: a potential buddy read with my friend! This will be a denser read I think, but rewarding
  • The Unhoneymooners: more islandy rom coms please. This might come to the beach or pool with me ๐Ÿ˜Š
  • Man Enough: saw this in someone’s review recently and it sounds like it could be fascinating! I hear a lot about social issues towards women (good lord don’t even get me started on social issues towards women right now because it’s a bit of a nightmare in the US) but not much towards men, so I’ll hear some on that side
  • The North Wind: I bought this super gorgeous copy of this book I had never heard of. Guess I should read it, huh? ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s a later post today, but feel free to drop your Top Ten Tuesday links in the comments! If you’ve read any of these, give me a shout on which I should start next. ๐Ÿ˜Š


Reader, traveler, photographer, and always looking to learn!

  1. Omg I feel like I’ve been planning to read Daughter of the Moon Goddess for months as well and I just never get to it ๐Ÿฅฒ I hope you enjoy it and all the other books on your list, Jennifer!


  2. Ooh the cover of The North Wind IS gorgeous; I’d buy that on sight too! Hopefully the story inside matches up.

    Speaking of things that are gorgeous…wait, Justin Baldoni as in Rafael on Jane the Virgin?? I have never looked at this man twice, but apparently all he had to do was grow out his hair (and a full beard) to become the most gorgeous man on the planet. Sorry to objectify, which is probably something he talks about in this very book, but his looks are responsible for me now slowing down and growing curious about a book I would probably have passed by on premise alone. Interesting.

    1. Yeahhh I admit that his luscious hair is what stopped me and made me look into the book ๐Ÿ˜… it does sound excellent though, and I’m always hunting for more non-fiction
