Updated Summer TBR

Updated Summer TBR 2020

Updated Summer TBR

A few months ago I created a Self-Isolation TBR but since lockdown seems to be extending into Summer 2020, I thought it was try for an update. So this is my updated Summer TBR.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

The prequel to the Hunger Games series. I was a massive fan of the original series and read all three books in two sittings. This books however is chunkier than the rest, and I’m a little intimidated by it. I’ve read the opening chapter but I’ve already put it down…not a promising beginning. But I’m determined to read it regardless.

The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai

I’m still getting around to reading this book. I know that it is going to be so hard-hitting but I’m desperate to read it, I just think I need to be in the right-frame of mind and able to read a large chunk in one go.

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

Another book I will get to this summer. It looks and sounds incredible so I just need to pick it up and stop being distracted.

The High Moments by Sara-Jane Ozbek

I love a contemporary women’s fiction novel about a heroine making a ton of mistakes. This character is exactly that, but she’s also a tad unlikable. Set in London, within the modelling community I’m looking forward to seeing how I get on with this book and if I’ll add it to my next list of books to read in your twenties.

The Shelf by Helly Acton

I’m really looking forward to getting to this book. I’ve been lucky enough to receive an advanced copy and it’s high on my TBR as I think we all need a light-hearted women’s fiction novel right now.

Exciting Times by Naoise Dolan

Everyone has been talking about this book, almost as much as the Normal People TV series. As such I’ve added it to my reading wish list and I’m looking forward to getting to it soon.

My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell

This is a HarperCollins book I’ve been desperate to read since the beginning of the year but whenever I spoke to one of my colleagues about getting a copy they never had any in the office! It’s a dark women’s fiction novel looking at the consequences of childhood grooming from a teacher but years down the line.

Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo

The next Books before Boys book club read is Girl, Woman Other by Bernardine Evaristo and I’m very much looking forward to it. I’ve never read anything by her before, and I think this will also be my first ever Man Booker Prize winner book?! I have until the end of June to read this so I’ll feed back soon.

What have you got on your Summer TBR list? Are you after light-hearted women’s fiction like me or going more of the classical or action-adventure route? Let me know in the comments below.
