Top Ten Tuesday is currently being hosted by That Artsy Girl Reader and this week’s topic is Books On My Summer 2020 TBR
Because I’m such a mood reader and have a hard time sticking to a planned list of reads, I’m just gonna shoot off some new releases I’ve been looking forward to reading but aren’t out yet!!
Survivor Song by Paul Tremblay
Pub Date: July 7, 2020

I can’t wait to buddy read this one next month with Does The Dog Die In This? Book Club
In a matter of weeks, Massachusetts has been overrun by an insidious rabies-like virus that is spread by saliva. But unlike rabies, the disease has a terrifyingly short incubation period of an hour or less. Those infected quickly lose their minds and are driven to bite and infect as many others as they can before they inevitably succumb. Hospitals are inundated with the sick and dying, and hysteria has taken hold. To try to limit its spread, the commonwealth is under quarantine and curfew. But society is breaking down and the government’s emergency protocols are faltering.
Dr. Ramola “Rams” Sherman, a soft-spoken pediatrician in her mid-thirties, receives a frantic phone call from Natalie, a friend who is eight months pregnant. Natalie’s husband has been killed—viciously attacked by an infected neighbor—and in a failed attempt to save him, Natalie, too, was bitten. Natalie’s only chance of survival is to get to a hospital as quickly as possible to receive a rabies vaccine. The clock is ticking for her and for her unborn child.
Natalie’s fight for life becomes a desperate odyssey as she and Rams make their way through a hostile landscape filled with dangers beyond their worst nightmares—terrifying, strange, and sometimes deadly challenges that push them to the brink.
Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer

Where are my Twilight fans at??
I was a huuuge fan of Twilight back when it first came out! Vampires? Werewolves? Yes please! Hate all you want, but I loved it and have no shame in admitting it either. I admit. It’s been years since I last read it, so Midnight Sun will be fresh for me, and interesting to see if I still feel the same as I did then.
When Edward Cullen and Bella Swan met in Twilight, an iconic love story was born. But until now, fans have heard only Bella’s side of the story. At last, readers can experience Edward’s version in the long-awaited companion novel, Midnight Sun.

I loved Serpent & Dove! More than I actually thought I would. So I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens in this one 🙂
After narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Dames Blanches, Lou, Reid, Coco, and Ansel are on the run from coven, kingdom, and church—fugitives with nowhere to hide.
To elude the scores of witches and throngs of chasseurs at their heels, Lou and Reid need allies. Strong ones. But protection comes at a price, and the group is forced to embark on separate quests to build their forces. As Lou and Reid try to close the widening rift between them, the dastardly Morgane baits them in a lethal game of cat and mouse that threatens to destroy something worth more than any coven.
What’s on your summer tbr??
