|Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Do come join the fun...|
Here are some that are likely to be at the top, however:
1. Palace of Stone by Shannon Hale. This sequel to Princess Academy is coming in August! I can't miss this.
2. Briar Rose by Jane Yolen. A Sleeping Beauty retelling, and as I love retold fairy tales, I'm excited to read it.
3. The Young Unicorns by Madeleine L’Engle. I'd never even heard of this one till Arabella brought it over, but I don't often turn down a book with unicorns in the title.
4. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. On request at the library, just in case I happen to see the movie—I'd like to have read the book first.
5. A Company of Swans by Eva Ibbotson. It's long past time I got acquainted with Ibbotson.
6. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. One of the fantasy classics on my to-read list, also on request at the library.
7. Insurgent by Veronica Roth. Much as I'm ready to be done with bleak, hyper-traumatic tales of the future, I can't escape dystopia entirely this summer. This series is one of a few I'm willing to read.
8. Finding Angel by Kat Heckenbach. An independently published (not self-published) young adult fantasy, this looks intriguing, and I'm interested in reading some indie things anyway. Double win.
9. The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley. There's always room on my reading list for McKinley.
10. Fantasy classic choice based on pure whim. The mood of the moment will determine whether I choose Eddings, Brooks, Marillier, Lackey, McCaffrey, or another. I only feel like half a proper fantasy fan without having read something by these people.
What do you plan to read this summer?
