Top Ten Tuesday (28) - Summer TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week it's all about the top books on your summer TBR list.  I have SOOOO many books to read, both from before BEA and thanks to BEA.  And I always find more to add to my list just from browsing other people's TTTs.  But this topic was actually easy for me, because I know exactly which books I want to read first this summer.

The Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR List
  • Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson  -  Technically I already started this book, but summer's only a couple days a way, so I'm counting it anyway.  It reminds me a lot of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, so that's a win for me.
  • Awaken by Meg Cabot  -  I cannot wait to finish this trilogy.  I'm hoping that this final book will be a satisfying ending.  *crosses fingers*
  • Ink by Amanda Sun  -  Japanese mythology + beautiful cover = book I can't wait to read!  My sister is actually reading it right now, so I have to wait for her to finish it first.
  • Taken by Erin Bowman  -  I've been waiting to read this for so long.  Ever since I first heard about it on someone's TTT last year.  Now I finally have it and am looking forward to it.
  • Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi  -  LOVED Under the Never Sky so I'm psyched for this book.  More Perry please! 
  • The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater  -  I got the sequel, The Dream Thieves, at BEA so I figure I should probably read this book first.  Borrowed it from the library so it's definitely a top priority.
  • Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta  -  Another book I got the sequel for at BEA.  Technically I got the third book, and my library only had this one, so getting the second book should be interesting.
  • The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey  -  I seriously hope this book lives up to all the hype around it.  I have yet to hear one negative thing about it.  Plus there's so much dystopian out there right now that an alien invasion book is a refreshing change.
  • Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier  -  I read the first book, Shadowfell, last year without knowing anything about it really.  And I loved it!  I love the story and the characters, and Marillier's writing is amazing.
  • Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi  -  I got Unravel Me at BEA, and now need to find a copy of this book. Especially so I can get involved in this Warner vs. Adam showdown.  I wonder which team I will be.
So what do you think?  Agree or disagree?  Any books here that you've already read and loved?  Read and hated?  And what are your top books to be read this summer?
