This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from the Broke and the Bookish highlights Books on my Fall TBR. I was nervous about this post because I was worried it would be a complete repeat of my Top Ten Books on My Summer TBR post, but when I gave that post another look I realized I’ve actually read seven out of ten. What a productive summer! So my fall list is as follows:
1. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: I have been entirely too excited about this book for months (it was on my summer TBR even though it wouldn’t even come out until September) and now I’m even more excited, if that’s possible. It’s finally September, thank goodness, plus I’ve started reading The Grisha Trilogy and been pretty impressed by Leigh Bardugo. Bring on the crows.
2. Ferragost by Melina Marchetta: How haven’t I read this? The digital version is super cheap and it’s my last Marchetta. I should have read this ages ago.
3. A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis: The cover is gorgeous and it involves an asylum. I can’t help myself.
4. Children’s Literature: A Reader’s History from Aesop to Harry Potter by Seth Lerer: Literary criticism is probably a boring choice for this list, but my boyfriend bought me this book for my birthday years ago (at my request) and I really just need to buckle down and read it.
5. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness: I’ve always wondered what it would be like to be outside of the action during tumultuous events, so this book may have some things in common with a story I’m writing. I’m keen to see how the author approaches this concept.
6. The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood: I need more Margaret Atwood in my life. Enough said.
7. Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor: Yet another book people are always talking about.
8. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch: The sequel’s coming out in October and that cover is giving me life.
9. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr: Everyone in the world has read this book by now, except for me.
10. The Young Elites by Marie Lu: I’ve heard good things and the concept is right up my alley. Yes, please.
I’m not at all strict about when I read books. I get to them when the spirit moves me. I’m sure I’ll have read some of these by the winter, but not all. What books are on your TBR list? Let me know in the comments.
