Summer TBR 2014

This summer, I plan on doing a lot of reading. The list I have complied will most likely (I would say a 95% chance) be more than I will actually get done with, like I think I'll read with ten of them and that's it, but I am hoping to get through them all.
BTW: These books are in no particular order, I'm just going on what comes to my head in the books it gives me.
Will Read For Sure:
1. Onyx/Opal/Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Note: I will not be putting the covers up for these three books since I think it's too much so this will be an exception for the list.
I am currently reading the first book in her Lux series (Obsidian), and I just LOVING this book and I will finish it by next week or by the end of this week if I'm lucky. This series is so far so addicting and this summer seems like the perfect time to marathon a series like this since the last book will be coming out on August 5th, and I should read those books. (The only problem is that I need to get a copy of Origin prior to Opposition and I'm hoping to get lucky and be able to get it). I plan on to marathon this series in July, so I won't be running against the clock to finish this in August (if I at least get the last book when it comes out I will be happy and probably take the book more slowly)
 2. What I Thought was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick
I got this book a few days ago, and this just seems like the perfect book to read during the summer. The cover just screams it in fact. The Water, the colors, the setting sun-just every part of it is summer-y to me. The plot also seems like a summer read, cause this takes place in summer so, it's like this book was made for a summer read! I will probably be reading this in June cause it's like the start of summer (and I think I'll be in some kinda of mourning period after City of Heavenly Fire).
3. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Ok, I actually plan to read this right after I finish City of Heavenly Fire so it will probably technically still be Spring, but I'm counting it as a summer read because I can. I already own this book, so basically it's already queued up for me to read after I finish City of Heavenly Fire. I have a feeling I will need a remedy after that book because I will probably feel the same way I did at the end of Allegiant, but a million times worse. This book just sounds really sweet and just like the book I'll need after COHF. It is possible I might read Anna and the French Kiss, but Lola and the Boy Next Door it more likely.
4. Harry Potter books 1, 2, or 3 (maybe the whole series but I do not think that will happen) by-come on you should know who this is by
I am ashamed to say that I haven't read a single Harry Potter book in my entire life. I seriously need to read one of the first three books. I want to read book one because it's the shortest and it's the beginning of the series, or I might read Chamber of Secrets because it is my favorite out of the first two Harry Potter movies (and those are the only two movies I have seen), or maybe Prisoner of Azkaban because I have no idea what happens in that one. I don't know when I'll read, I just know I have to read it this summer.
5. Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken
I plan on to read this sometime closer to the end of August/beginning of September before I read Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan in preparation for Blood of Olympus. I'll read this around August/September so that I will still at least be somewhat in the world before the release of In The Afterlight on the 16th of September, the last book in the series. This one will be a guarantee since I LOVE The Darkest Minds so much that it's one of my favorite books of all time. Like the Top 5, maybe Top 3 maybe even my favorite of all time but I haven't really thought about that list too much.
Books that I have a good chance of reading:
1. The Magician by Michael Scott
I read The Alchemyst, the first book in the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, and I LOVED it a lot! So now that I have the first three books (cause I got the box set for Christmas), I want to read at least the second book this summer. It will probably be during June (but again I don't know). I will mostly likely not get to The Sorceress, but if I read this I'll be happy.
2. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (and possibly Crown of Midnight by the same author)
I have heard so many good things about this book, and the fact that (in my mind) it's like a Game Of Thrones version of the Hunger Games makes me really want to read this! I have read one of the novellas that comes before this (The Assassin and the Empire), and I loved it. It didn't blow me away, but I really enjoyed it and loved it. Like the Lux series I mentioned earlier, this seems like the perfect series to marathon during the summer since I heard it's fast paced and since Heir of Fire will be coming out on September 2nd, so I will probably be reading this (and maybe Crown of Midnight) before then.
3. The Selection (and maybe the whole trilogy) by Kiera Cass
This just seems like the perfect trilogy to marathon in the summer, or at least read the first book. It's like the Bachelor meets the Hunger Games, and while it is a chick-flick dystopian, it sounds really interesting to me and the first book (and the whole series in general) isn't too long, each book is only about 300 pages so I should get it done relatively soon if I decide to read it. The series seems like the perfect to marathon this summer since the series will be completed in May, and the box set comes out in July so it's the perfect time to read sometime like this.
4. The Diviners by Libba Bray
Ever since I got this book, I just felt like it was a summer read and the perfect time to read it (and also so I don't carry that big chunk of book around with me at school). But since it is so massive, I don't think I'll get to it. But one can hope.
Books that there is a pretty good chance I will not get to but I can only hope I'll get to:
1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Ok, if I want to read Isla and the Happily Ever After, I should read this book and Lola and the Boy Next Door, but there is a pretty good chance I will not get to both this summer. I know it comes out in August, but I want all of the books in the series to match, so I think I'm going to wait until August of next year (or whenever the paperback of Isla will come out) to read that book and this.
2. Fallen by Lauren Kate
I do own this book, and I want to give angel books a try. I don't think I will give this a try since I have a hundred books to read and I don't think this will be the best book to introduce me to angel books, so I will most likely start with something like Unearthly prior to this.
3. Slated by Teri Terry
This books sounds really interesting to me, and I really want to read it (especially since I love dystopian). But this is a 500 page book and I don't feel like I'm in the mood to read something like this in the summer (but it might change when the time comes).
4. The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour
This honestly sounds like the type of book you read in the summer. Road trip, music, coming-of-age, contemporary-sounds like all of the good things about summer. Out of all the books in this section of the TBR, this is one I am most likely to read when I think of it.

  1. Good luck with trying to read all these! I need to read Slated and Crown of Midnight as well (I'd definitely recommend Throne of Glass though, and The Assassin's Blade if you can get your hands on it/have time!).
