Top Ten Tuesday: Books You (and I) Should Pick Up This Summer

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Books I’ve Added to my TBR and Forgotten Why.” I actually forgot to do this week’s topic but since I didn’t post last week’s Books that Give Off Summer Vibes post, I will do so now. Reminder that as people begin to go back to their normal routines, there are still people protesting and fighting for justice. I encourage you to visit this site if you aren’t quite sure where to get started. There are so many resources out there and there is no excuse not to stay informed. For this topic, I am listing five contemporaries that are perfect to pick up this summer as well as five that I plan to pick up. Covers are linked to Goodreads.

Five Books You Should Pick Up:


1. Don’t Date Rosa Santos by Nina Moreno 

2. Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann

3. Truly Madly Royally by Debbie Rigaud

4. Love From A to Z by S.K. Ali

5. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Five Books I Should Pick Up:

6. Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender

7. You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson

8. The Perfect Escape by Suzanne Park

9. The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa

10. If It Makes You Happy by Claire Kann

Which contemporary book are you planning to pick up this summer? Let me know in the comments and be sure to leave me a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.

  1. I haven’t read many contemporaries lately but there are so many coming out that look good. I’m hoping to read at least a few this summer. I’m always drawn to contemps more in summer for some reason. The Perfect Escape looks fun!

  2. I keep forgetting to special order Let’s Talk About Love from my local bookstore. I should do that once the quarantine is done. I was looking forward to it then but they never had it locally.
