Top 10 Tuesday: Books on My Summer 2022 TBR

Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about books on my Summer 2022 TBR!

I love making these lists, but I rarely stick to them… Oh well! These are my top priority books for this summer, so hopefully I’ll be able to get through several of them! Without further ado, here are the top ten books on my summer 2022 TBR (in no particular order)!

To learn more about a book, click on the photo to find the Goodreads synopsis.

1. Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

I’ve been wanting to read this one for a long time! Hopefully I’ll finally get to it this summer.

2. Turn Right at Machu Picchu: Rediscovering the Lost City One Step at a Time by Mark Adams

My husband and I will be going to Machu Picchu this summer, so I really want to read this before we go!

3. Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate

One of my goals for this year is to read more historical fiction, and this one just sounds so interesting. Hopefully I’ll get to read it soon!

4. The Orange Grove by Rosanna Ley

This cover just has such summery vibes, and I love that it’s set in Sevilla, Spain. I studied abroad there and am so desperate to go back, so I’m hoping reading this will make me feel like I’m there again!

5. Scythe (Series) by Neal Shusterman

I’ve heard such good things about this series, and I love a good YA dystopian story, so I’m really excited to read this one!

6. Hunter x Hunter by Yoshihiro Togashi

I’ve never read any manga, but my students love it. This is one I’ve heard them talk about before, so my plan is to try reading some manga over the summer so that I can use it to help me to connect with my students this year. And who knows, maybe I’ll discover I have a love for manga!

7. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

I’m actually already reading this one (well, listening to it)! However, it’s by far the longest book I’ve ever attempted to read. I’m hoping to finish it this summer before I go back to work, but we’ll see! I’m already about 1/4 of the way through and I’m listening to it slightly sped up, but I still have nearly 40 hours left! I’m confident I’ll finish eventually though, it’s really good so far.

8. The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende

Of all the books on this list, I’m least confident I’ll get to this one this summer. However, it was assigned reading for me over the summer before junior year of high school… 11 years ago. And I never actually read it (one of the few times I didn’t follow through on a school assignment)! I would love to finally read this one, even if it is 11 years later than I was supposed to.

9. La casa en Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros

Another one of my reading goals for this year is to read more in Spanish, so this summer I’d like to read at least one book in Spanish. I read excerpts from this for a high school Spanish class and I remember liking it, so hopefully I’ll be able to get through the whole thing this summer!

10. The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley

This is a classroom library book I’d like to read this summer. I’ve heard great things about it, and I would love to have a good historical fiction book to use as a read-aloud!

Have you read any of these books? What would your top ten be?

Let me know in the comments!

      1. I find the same thing, I’ve found that audiobooks really help me with non-fiction, I get more engaged when I’m listening, so maybe that’s worth trying if you like audiobooks (I know not everyone does!).

  1. There’s so many good ones on here! I kept going “ooh! ooh! me too!” haha. I also have The Count of Monte Cristo on my shelf, though not on my list (officially). The Isabel Allende title is one I want to get to though! Does the fact that it was assigned make you less want to read it? Like a lingering feeling of obligation? xD I think it’ll be a challenging and more dense one for me so I’m doing a buddy read with a friend to try getting through it more consistently. I liked one of her other books though, The Japanese Lover. Good Luck!! 🙂

    1. Haha maybe a little? 😂 I’ve also read one of her other books (In the Midst of Winter) and I really liked it, so I’m optimistic! I also have The Japanese Lover but I haven’t read it yet, I’ll have to add that one to the list too! 😊
