Summer TBR Pile Read-a-Long

While doing this past week’s Top 10 Tuesday, Jenn @ Lost in a Great Book and I realized we had a few similar books that we wanted to finally get around to reading. So we decided that we’d keep each other motivated by reading them together, and then we can chat about it! Understanding that the summer can get busy and we have other books to also read as well, we figure allowing for a whole month to get to it would be sufficient.

So, I thought I’d do up a little graphic, and invite anyone else who hasn’t read one or both of these books to join us!

July: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

August: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Let me know in the comments if you’d like to join us, and if there’s enough of us, maybe I’ll add up a linky at the end of the month to link up our reviews!


  1. Both of those are sitting on my desk and I haven’t read them yet. I’d definitely like to join in!!

  2. What a fun idea! I have actually read both, but I think it’s really cool to motivate each other to read the same books. :)

  3. I’d join for Mara Dyer! I’ve already read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, though I may join your conversation. :)

  4. Both of these are on my to-read list, so I’d love to join in! This is a great idea, and maybe this way I’ll actually get them read!

  5. I’m just amazed that I’ve actually read not one, but two books that you haven’t! Haha! I love the idea though:)

  6. I’d love to join in for Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but my library doesn’t have it… I’ve already read Mara and loved it!

  7. AHHH YES! I still need to read Smoke & Bone so this could be a great way to push myself to do it :)

  8. Yes! I need to read both of these! Will join you for both! 😀

  9. I’ll join you on the Smoke and Bone thingy ;D I’ve already read The Unbecomming, but will surely stop by to join the discussions! Great initiative!

  10. I still have to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, which I got when it was a new release, and I put it on my summer TBR list so I’m with you on that one!

    I haven’t decided yet whether to get Mara Dyer though, too many friends with “meh” reactions.

  11. Awesome idea! I just read and reviewed Daughter of Smoke and Bone recently myself, but I am totally up for Mara in August!

  1. […] July has come and gone already! How did everyone do with their reading pile this month? As previously posted, Jenn @ Lost in a Great Book & I wanted to get to a few books over the summer that have been on […]
