Top Ten Books on My TBR for Summer 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

I've always been a bit obsessive about making Summer To-Read lists, so this one's a no-brainer. ^_^
The Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn 
The Courtship of Princess Leia by Dave Wolverton
 My goal of reading 'all the Star Wars books' hasn't really gotten off the ground yet. That's changing now. I'm starting with Zahn's trilogy because I started it years ago and want to finish it. Courtship sounds intriguing, and also sounds like a stand-alone, so win. Plus, Han and Leia. And 'courtship'.
After this, I'm seriously considering The New Jedi Order, though apparently that series is huge. HUGE.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
Because I've never read it. And everyone tells me I should. And I know half the plot anyway thanks to the Internet.
The Dream Keepers by Mikey Brooks
A middle-grade fantasy adventure that's been on my TBR list too long.

Now we get into the superhero fiction. The official them for this year's ALA Summer Reading Program centers on superheroes, and there are quite a few superhero fictions that have gathered on my TBR over the years.
A Once Crowded Sky by Tom King
Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman
Centering on an evil genius whose plans never seem to work, I see a lot of Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog accompanying this.
The Golden Age by Cindy Vaughn
Sidekicked by John David Anderson
Personally, I think this is an insta-win. In a world teeming with superheroes, this middle-grade story is about the sidekick.
Infinity Gauntlet (Marvel Comics)
I paid good money for this. It's about time I read it. Plus, that scene at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron...
Superman: The High Flying History of the Man of Steel by Larry Tye
I love reading up on the history of the mythos, from fairy tales and folklore to superheroes.

Your turn to fess up. What's top on your Summer TBR?


  1. I have the second Harry Potter book on my list, but truefuly I probably will be reading all over the place this summer. I really want to read Sidekick sometime too.

    1. I kept forgetting to ever grab Sidekicked, but the children's book club where I work is reading it right now. The signs plastered up every where should help me remember. ;)
