Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Feel/Look Like Summer

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week's prompt is...

Top Ten Books or Covers that Feel/Look Like Summer

The first four are books with the word "summer" in their titles. I have only read two, while the other two are in my TBR.

Summer by Edith Wharton (Read but not yet reviewed)
The Summer Book by Tove Jansson
A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
The Greengage Summer by Rumer Godden

The next five are with covers that looks like summer:

My Good Life in France by Janine Marsh
The Earth by Émile Zola

And the last one is simply the essence of summer trapped in a book:

Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury

Have you read any of them? Any favorite?



  1. Oh yes, Dandelion Wine. Now that's a sensory experience in a book.

    And I've been meaning to read Edith Wharton's Summer.

    1. A good way to describe the book; it is a sensory experience of indeed.
      I hope you'll love Summer when you read it, it's very different from the usual upper class circle.

  2. I love dandelions! They’re so summer-y.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post.


    1. I would love to taste dandelion wine.. I bet it tastes like summer! ;)

  3. I love the James Herriot books, my dad used to read them to me as a kid!
    My TTT:

  4. The Summer Book cover is perfect for this prompt!

  5. A Midsummer Night's Dream is a great favourite with me; cover wise from your picks this week, Five Go Off in a Caravan and My Good Life in France are ones I like best.

    1. You pick the best! Though Famous Five's are always about summer holiday, this one's cover reflect the summer-y aspect very well.

  6. I haven't read any of these, but their covers are definitely feel/look like summer!

    Happy TTT!

  7. Love all of these summery covers! And Dandelion Wine is one of my favorite books. It's a novel that truly epitomizes summer! :D

    1. True! It's a pity Dandelion Wine is one of the least popular from Bradbury.
