Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR list

It's time again for Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish!

This week's theme:  Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR list

Here's my list: 

1. Portrait of a Serial Killer by Patricia Cornwell:  This is a story of what could have happened with Jack the Ripper. 


2. A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson:  I hear this book is quite funny. It seems like the perfect book to read while camping this summer!


 3. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman:  I hear this is also quite funny.


4. For the Love of the Game by  Michael Shaara: I love me some baseball!


5. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson: I think summer is a good time for some swashbuckling!


6.  The Hound of Baskerville by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: I have yet to read any Sherlock.  I think I'll start with this one.


7. This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper:  I want to read this before seeing the movie.


 8. The Mouments Men by Robert Edsel: This is another I want to read before I see the movie.


9.  The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan:  I promised someone I would get caught p on this series before the newest book comes out.


10. Pretenders by Lisi Harrison:  I PROMISED my niece I would read this (but I really have no interest.

  3. I don't know most of these books but Son Of Neptune! It's not the best in the series but is there really a bad Percy Jackson book? I think not! =)

  4. Nice list, I’m interested in reading Bill Bryson’s “A Walk in the Woods”, too, but so far, “A Short History of Nearly Everything” is the only book of his that I own.
    And I think that “The Hound of the Baskervilles” is a great starting point for Arthur Conan Doyle, I started with this one as well. :)

    1. I've never read any Bill Bryson, but I hear he's funny! And I am glad I am not the only one who wants to start Sherlock with The Hound of Baskerville.

  5. I loooovvvveee Sherlock Holmes! My favorite story is A Scandal in Bohemia. That's the story with Irene Adler, who is a great female character who outwits Sherlock. The Son of Neptune is a great sequel and it will get you hooked on the series.
