TOP TEN TUESDAY (2): TOP 10 BOOKS ON MY SUMMER TBR LIST



Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome people over at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is about the TOP TEN BOOKS ON MY SUMMER TBR LIST! But since it's not summer over here in the Philippines, I'll just list down SOME of the books that I'm anticipating to be released in the coming months and some books that were released already but I still haven't got the time to read it yet! Most of the books even have the summer-y feel to it. :) 




UGLY LOVE by Colleen Hoover
Publication Date: August 5, 2014
Publisher: Atria Books
Synopsis: 
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her. 
Never ask about the past.Don’t expect a future. 
They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all. 
Hearts get infiltrated.Promises get broken.Rules get shattered.Love gets ugly.
I already prepared lots of tissues for the release of this book. I'm scared that it's going to break my heart again and again and again. Here's what Colleen Hoover (the author herself) said about Ugly Love: 
Miles. Miles, Miles, Miles. Seven books I've successfully completed. Will? He didn't make me cry when I wrote him. Holder? Nope. No tears, here. Daniel? I might have pissed myself laughing. Ridge? Heart wrenching, soul-crushing. But dry eyes. Miles?Miles, Miles, Miles. He's making me bawl like a baby.

LANDLINE by Rainbow Rowell 
Publication Date: July 8, 2014
Publisher: St. Martin's Press

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems besides the point now. 
Maybe that was always besides the point. 
Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.
That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .
Is that what she’s supposed to do? 
Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

Publication Date: August 5, 2014

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.
They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.
War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.
BOOMERANG by Noelle August
Publication Date: July 8, 2014
Publisher: HarperAudio
Synopsis:
The first book in a sensational New Adult trilogy from Noelle August 
Welcome to Boomerang.com, the dating site for the millennial gen with its no-fuss, no-commitments matchups, and where work is steamier than any random hook-up 
Mia Galliano is an aspiring filmmaker. Ethan Vance has just played his last game as a collegiate soccer star. They’re sharp, hungry for success, and they share a secret. 
Last night, Ethan and Mia met at a bar, and, well . . . one thing led to another, which led to them waking up the next morning—together. Things turned awkward in a hurry when they found themselves sharing a post hookup taxi . . . to the same place: Boomerang headquarters. 
What began as a powerful connection between them is treated to a cold shower courtesy of two major complications. First, Boomerang has a strict policy against co-worker dating. And second, they’re now competitors for only one job at the end of summer. 
As their internships come to an end, will they manage to keep their eyes on the future and their hands off each other, or will the pull of attraction put them right back where they started?

SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE by Morgan Matson
Simon & Schuster's been promoting this book on Instagram almost everyday after it's release (which was last month) so I decided to add it up on my TBR list. The cover looks cute + interesting synopsis = totes gonna read it!
Synopsis:
The Pre-Sloane Emily didn't go to parties, she barely talked to guys, she didn't do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend—the one who yanks you out of your shell.But right before what should have been an epic summer, Sloane just... disappears. No note. No calls. No texts. No Sloane. There’s just a random to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-selected-definitely-bizarre-tasks that Emily would never try... unless they could lead back to her best friend. Apple Picking at Night? Ok, easy enough.Dance until Dawn? Sure. Why not? Kiss a Stranger? Wait... what?
Getting through Sloane’s list would mean a lot of firsts. But Emily has this whole unexpected summer ahead of her, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected) to check things off. Who knows what she’ll find? 
Go Skinny Dipping? Um...
THE ART OF LAINEY by Paula Stokes

So Lainey channels her inner warlord, recruiting spies to gather intel and persuading her coworker Micah to pose as her new boyfriend to make Jason jealous.

Am I the only one who has not read this book/trilogy yet? I'm so late to party! LOL!

Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer--they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.
