Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books on My Summer 2022 TBR
I’m linking up today with That Artsy Reader Girl: Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books on My Summer 2022 TBR.
With all the books on my radar on a given day, it’s nice to pick out a few for an official TBR. Ten still leaves room for library holds that come in, occasional ARCs, or some mood reading.
One question you may ask is “Are these beach reads?” Many readers have differing opinions of what comprises a beach read: some want light and fluffy, some look for thrillers/suspense/mysteries, some seek out escapist reads, while others like to tackle large tomes or serious content during the summer when they have more time. It’s my opinion that any book you read at the beach is a beach read (just like a body at the beach is a beach body). For my summer reads, I look for the types of books I look for all year: memorable, thought-provoking, and unputdownable. This summer I actually have more light women’s fiction on my TBR than in the past. (I’m also an incorrigible mood reader)
Keep in mind that I’m not yet recommending the books on this list…..check back often though because I will provide updates and links to reviews as I read them. For now, these are the reads that are on my summer 2022 reading radar.
And….Happy Winter reading to my friends and followers in the Southern Hemisphere!

This is receiving good reviews, so I’m hopeful!
***UPDATE: It was OK. 3.5 Stars.
Literary Historical Fiction
Tyler’s books are heavily character-driven and I like a little more plot, so we’ll see.
***UPDATE: DNF 50%. Character-Driven is hit or miss for me.
I loved Veronica Henry’s How to Find Love in a Bookshop, so I have high hopes for her recent release.
Women’s Fiction, Romance
***UPDATE: 4 Stars. Ok light read.
Women’s Fiction, Romance
***UPDATE: 2.5 Stars. Too much open-door romance and crude talk for my taste.
Historical Fiction, Titanic
***UPDATE: 4.5 Stars. Fascinating rescue effort from the Carpathia’s perspective.
Women’s Fiction, Romance, Nigerian
The adorable title and “own voices” attracts my attention!
***UPDATE: 4.5 Stars. Fun, diverse read.
Historical Fiction, WW11, Books About Books
A holdover from my Spring TBR. I’m seeing wonderful reviews for this….I’m impatiently holding out for the kindle or paperback format. ***update: e version will not be available until early 2023.
Historical Fiction, New York City
Fiona Davis is known for featuring famous New York City buildings in her books, so I’m curious to read about the one central to this story.
***UPDATE: 3.5 Stars. OK read but not memorable.
Prayers of Blessing.
***UPDATE: I’m reading a blessing once in a while but it’s not compelling. Poets may enjoy this more.
