Hello, bookworms! How are you, my dear friends?
What do you think about the title? When I saw the theme for this week, I immediately thought of this song!
I don’t even remember the last time I posted something related to this weekly meme! I kind of gave up doing this meme because it’s a little bit long ( I mean, I have to talk about 10 books). Don’t get me wrong, after all, it’s a really cool weekly challenge, but I didn’t have time to post it before because of college. But since I have already started my summer vacations, I think it’s time to post this weekly meme again!
Here’s a little introduction about the meme, which was created by The Broke and the Bookish:
1. The 100, by Kass Morgan: Have you watched the book-to-TV show adaptation of The 100? IT’S AMAZING AND I LOVE IT! It makes me sad that I haven’t watched season 3 yet… Anyway, I really want to read this book soon. Yes, I know many people say that, in this case, the tv show is way better than the book, but I still want to read it. It’s sci-fi, I mean, of course I’m going to read it!
2. The Bone Season, by Samantha Shannon: Yesssss, I will finally read this. Soon. Ish.
Ok, I really want to see why her publisher said she is the next J.K. Rowling, even though people have already said this is not true, but she is still a talented writer. Anyway, I’m really excited about this book!
3. The Catcher in the Rye, by J. D. Salinger: I know this a book you either love or hate, so I’m really curious about this classic!
4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor: It has been a while since I read a book about angels and forbidden love, so I can’t wait to read it!! And everyone says good things about Laini Taylor’s writing!
5. The Selection, by Kiera Cass: On Instagram, I asked if I should read this and, of course, many people said yes because it’s a good dystopian book that has a mix of royalty and the tv show The Banchelor (I’ve never watched it, but I know its concept). I said that maybe I would ordered an English copy, but I think I want to order books I really want, so I’m going to read it in Portuguese (my mom is a librarian, so I’ll ask her to bring this one home) since the first 3 books are already out here in Portugal and the 4th book is released in June.
6. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by Seth Grahame-Smith: Another book from the library! As I said, I love Pride and Prejudice! Also, I love zombies, so I should read this book this summer!
7. The Longest Ride, by Nicholas Sparks: Whenever someone talks about Nicholas Sparks near me, I always say that I don’t love him, but I don’t hate him either, and yet I have, like, 5 or 6 books written by him. Ops. Anyway, I’m really curious about this one since it has 2 couples instead of what Nicholas Sparks usually writes, which is one couple and someone close to them, or one of them, dies and there are other sad things, etc. Of course this also has sad moments and I’m sure someone dies, but it’s kind of different from his other books, right?
Now, let’s talk about the last 3 books of The Mortal Instruments series, by Cassandra Clare!!!
10. City of Heavenly Fire: So, many people say that this one will give me all the feels. Oh, boy.
Of course, these aren’t the only books I want to read this summer! I just randomly chose 10 books from my Summer TBR. I have more than 30 books to read this Summer, don’t worry!
Now, let me ask you this: what books are you definitely going to read on the beach?
