Summer TBR

Summer is officially here. I say officially because in Spain we've been dealing with a horrible heat-wave since the beginning of last week and I cannot fathom how people love summer. I hate it, with a passion. And I cannot wait for autumn and winter if I'm honest.

Anyways, I'm not here to hate on summer although I love doing just that. I'm here to share with you all my summer TBR. I did the exact same thing in spring. So it's gonna be the same now: I've picked 5 titles which I wanna read during the summer months. I hope to read more than 5 books during the next three months but these 5 are a priority of some sort.

  • The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I've been meaning to read this book for ages now but I'm terrified of the hype. However, I do want to watch the TV show adaptation and for that to happen, I need to read the book first.
  • The Clocks in this House All Tell Different Times by Xan Brooks. I pre-ordered this book the moment I heard about it because it sounded so so good. It came out in April and despite wanting to read it, I couldn't because of damn finals. Now I'm free. Yay! I hope it lives up to my expectations though.
  • Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham. This book is part mystery part historical fiction. In present day Tulsa Rowan finds a body in her family's property and she tries to find the truth behind it. But it also deals with past Tulsa and the horrible events that happened in 1921. I know this is gonna pack a punch. I've heard nothing but amazing things.
  • The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry. If you don't know about this book, where have you been living? Under a rock? It was everywhere last year and it has been released in the US the past week I believe. It is a very hyped book in the book community and that's why I've been putting it off for the longest time but I need to know what all the fuzz is about. It sounds just straight up my alley.
Any books you're planning on reading this summer?

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
