Top Ten Tuesday: My Fall TBR List

Welcome back BookTastyians!

Every week I participate in Top Ten Tuesday, which is hosted by The Broke and Bookish.

Today’s list theme is Books on my Fall To Be Read (TBR) List. Now, you’ve probably already seen my September Reading Queue post, which has books I plan on finishing throughout the month of September.  This TTT theme however, has to do with my reading plans for the entire fall, so there will be some that didn’t make it onto my Reading Queue.

Most of these titles are not new releases (although some are), but are instead books that have been sitting on my shelf for a while now and deserve a little love and attention. I would LOVE to get to all of these before December, but we’ll see how that goes!

Top Ten Tuesday: Beachy Reads

Hi there!

It’s officially the first week of summer! And I made it through the last days of school with my students with minimal crying! Yay!

I absolutely love summer reading. I get to lounge around the house, or coffee shops  just doing what I want…reading!

So, for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and Bookish) I  am shopping my own book shelves for summery, Beachy Reads. All the books listed below are those that I own, haven’t read yet and seem like they’d make for nice relaxing summer reading. So here they are!

Book Trailer of the Week: Of Poseidon

Book Trailer of the Week Banner

So, what do you think of my swanky new Book Trailer banner?!

Isn’t it cute?!  My husband is the master craftsman behind my book monster and I am so thankful for him to take the time to book trailer-ify the little guy (THANK YOU!!).

Of Poseidon by Anna BanksI’ve said it before, but I think book trailers are made of so much awesome, so every week I pick a book trailer to spotlight.  This week’s trailer is for Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, which is a fantasy filled with mermaid lore—which sounds totally fun!

Galen, a Syrena prince, searches land for a girl he’s heard can communicate with fish. It’s while Emma is on vacation at the beach that she meets Galen. Although their connection is immediate and powerful, Galen’s not fully convinced that Emma’s the one he’s been looking for. That is, until a deadly encounter with a shark proves  that Emma and her Gift may be the only thing that can save his kingdom. He needs her help–no matter what the risk.

So, now that you’ve read the summary, lets watch the book trailer!

Doesn’t it sound intriguing?  I have yet to read any mermaid fiction, which has recently become pretty popular, so I’m going to have to rectify this sad situation and get my hands on Of Poseidon as soon as I can. I need to add it to my ever-growing Summer To Read List!
