Top Ten Tuesday ~ Top Ten Books that Give Off Summer Vibes



"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".

It is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.

June 2: Books that Give Off Summer Vibes

So this week's topic is about books that give off summer vibes. Whilst I have read many books that take place in summer, they are not exactly what most people would think of as a good summer read. I therefore deviated a little from the topic and list ten books that have the word "Summer" in their title.

Aaronovitch, Ben "Foxglove Summer" (Fingerhut-Sommer) (Rivers of London 5)
Bristow, Gwen "Plantation Trilogy" ("Deep Summer", "Handsome Road", "This Side of Glory")
Bryson, Bill "One Summer: America, 1927"
Chabon, Michael "Summerland"
Chekhov, Anton "Summer Holidays"
Hustvedt, Siri "The Summer without Men"
Kingsolver, Barbara "Prodigal Summer"
Tsypkin, Leonid "Summer in Baden-Baden"
Tucker, Helen "The Sound of Summer Voices"
Weidermann, Volker "Summer Before the Dark"

    1. Thanks. I think if the word "Summer" is in the title, it should at least be a little about summer.

      Thanks for your visit. I also liked your choice of summer recipes.

    1. Thanks for your visit, Leslie, I'll come to your page later. I have read all the books where I added the link (in green), the two others are on my TBR pile. Will have to dig them out soon.

      I can recommend any book by Barbara Kingsolver, she writes great stories.

    1. "The Summer Without Men" is still on my TBR list but I will have to dig it out soon, now that I mentioned it here. And if you recommend it, I'm sure it's great.

    1. Thanks, Susan. Even though we don't always have the same taste in books, I am sure you would like a few of these.

      Thanks for your visit. Will get back to you soon.

  5. I'm always looking for a good summer read so these all look like excellent choices. I've been curious about the Aaronovitch series...

    1. If you like science fiction, you will love them. If, like me, you're not too keen on it, you might like the London connection. My husband likes science fiction and he loves them, as well.

      I've read the first four books, you can find my reviews about them on my Reading List.

      Thanks for your visit.

    1. Thanks, Lectrice. That is one of the two books I have not read, yet. But my friend Judy ^^ recommends it, and she has about the same taste in books as I do. So, I'm sure it's a good one.

      Thanks for your visit, I'll come to your place later.
