My Top 10 Summer Reading List 2015 Picks

Summer Reading List 2015 from Seriously, Sarah?

I have been letting reading challenges dictate a lot of my reading choices, and likely, I probably still will. However, if I were to disregard all challenges, these would be the 10 novels on my Summer Reading List 2015! These aren’t the latest, greatest, or even classic beach reads. Just 10 books that I’d like to knock out this summer.

Don’t forget to stop by the bottom and let me know what you’re reading this summer, so I can get a few more ideas!

Linking up with Broke and Bookish for Top 10 Tuesday.

Second Life

I know the reviews on Goodreads aren’t great right now, but I loved the author’s first novel so much that I absolutely want to read this one. I picked this one up on Audible since my credits were piling up.

The Book Thief

I’ve had this novel sitting on my shelf for awhile. And by sitting on my shelf, I mean, I have the audio. It’s kind of long, but I really want to listen. I know that it’s supposed to be a wonderful novel. I will finally get to it!

How to Talk to a Widower

I think this is the last Jonathan Tropper novel that I need to read. I have at least enjoyed, if not loved, every novel that I’ve read by him. I can’t wait to read it this summer. Actually, I listened to all of the other novels, but this was the only one that I picked up in paperback instead, so it will be interesting to read. I had a harder time listening to some of the novels because the narrator was the same guy who did Atlas Shrugged and a bunch of other novels.

How to Be Both

I always like to peruse the Man Booker prize long list and this novel caught my eye last year. While this novel seems a little dense, I do think it seems interesting. It seemed too confusing to listen to, so I’m going to try to read the ebook. We’ll see how that goes.

The Invisible Circus

The Invisible Circus

I thought that A Visit from the Goon Squad was one of the most innovative novels that I had ever read. I picked up a used copy of The Invisible Circus and can’t wait to read more of Egan’s work. I was able to get this one through Paperback Swap (I think…) so I’ll see how reading, rather than listening goes, first.

The Nightingale

This newly released novel definitely caught my attention. I picked up an audio version.

The House at Riverton

This is a Kate Morton novel that I haven’t read, yet! I have decided that I will read this one. My mom listened to the audio and loved it, so I decided to listen to it. After this, I will still need to read The Distant Hours. Oh, and her new release this fall!

Modern Romance

Who doesn’t love Aziz Ansari? I can’t wait to read his take on modern relationships. They confuse me. I still don’t know how I ended up married. Insert over-medicated joke

Call the Midwife

My aunt and lots of other people have gushed about this novel. So, I guess I will read this over the summer!

Last Night in Montreal

last night in montreal

I absolutely loved Station Eleven, so I picked up some used novels by the same author. I hope to read some, including Last Night in Montreal over the summer.
