New Books

Suddenly Last Summer by Sarah Morgan (June 24)

  • I read the first book (Sleigh Bells in the Snow) in this series around Christmas last year. Sarah Morgan is a favorite author of mine.magicbreaks

Bloodshifted by Cassie Alexander (July 1)

  • I finished the last book (Deadshifted) in this series about a month ago and am looking forward to this book since the last book ended in a cliffhanger.

The Escape by Mary Balogh (July 1)

  • Mary Balogh is an auto-buy author and I’m enjoying this historical romance series.

The Suffragette Scandal by Courtney Milan (July 14)

  • Courtney Milan is another historical romance author I like a lot. Her books are very well written.

Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews (Aug 5)

  • The Kate Daniels series is one of my very favorite series and this is my most anticipated book of the summer!

My TBR Books

Earth Star by Janet Edwards

  • I loved the first book (Earth Girl) in this series.medair

Sweet Disorder by Rose Lerner

  • I bought this book when it came out in March, but still haven’t read it. 🙁  Rose Lerner is also a favorite historical romance author.

Medair by Andrea K. Höst

  • I’m loving Andrea K. Höst’s writing and I’ve had this book (actually two books–The Silence of Medair and Voice of the Lost) for a while so I hope to read it this summer.

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

  • I really like the first book in this series so I need to get busy and read this one!

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge (audiobook)

  • I’ve had this audiobook for a long time and have heard lots of great things about it.


the-apple-orchardThe Apple Orchard by Susan Wiggs (Library e-book)–if the library book comes in this summer

  • I love the cover of this book–it sure looks like summer! I have it on hold and hope I’ll get it sometime this summer.

River Road by Jayne Ann Krentz (Library e-book)–if the library book comes in this summer

  • This book came out in January and I’ve wanted to read it. I finally found it at my library so again I’ve got it on hold.

Harlequin books–light reads for summer

  • I enjoy reading Harlequin books sometimes. They’re great books for summer reading and I’ve found some good authors.

    Great list! I loved The Apple Orchard and am looking forward to reading the Sarah Morgan, Balogh, and Krentz. I hadn’t heard of some of the others but several look interesting. Milan is on my list of authors to try. I’ve heard some great things about her work.

      I’ve heard good things about The Apple Orchard and it’s been quite awhile since I’ve read anything by Susan Wiggs. I really like Courtney Milan’s writing. I hope you get a chance to try it!

    I still need to start the Edie Spence series! I’ve seen it popping up on a lot of people’s lists lately. I also need to start on the Mary Balogh series. I loved her Bedwyn series, but I haven’t picked up any of her other series yet. Thanks for stopping by our Top Ten!

      I’ve been kind of surprised how much I’m enjoying the Edie Spence series! And Mary Balogh is a favorite author of mine. I’ve read most of her books except for some of the out-of-print ones I haven’t found yet.

    I freaking LOVED Earth Star (it was so not your typical YA and it had awesome archeology in it ..loved yes yes read that one hehe)

    I seriously enjoyed Cruel Beauty as well it just tickled my forbidden love bone and was a more mature YA which I totally prefer.

    Enjoy your reading !
