Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Fall TBR

In case you are new to this meme, Tuesday means it’s time for  Top Ten Tuesday created by The Broke and the BookishIf you want to join into the fun, just head over to her website and check out the different weekly themes. Today I am going to talk about “Books On My Fall TBR“. I am actually not sure if that means books that are coming out this fall and that I want to read or simply books that I intend to read during that season. I always have a hard time coming up with actual TBR lists, because I am a person who generally reads what I’m in the mood for or what I can get my hands on. Seen as I am in Austria and not all books are immediately available but rather have to be ordered, that can turn out to be a real issue sometimes. I think the list will mainly contain books I want to read though, but not necessarily books that I’ll actually read (because money, time, etc.).

(as always: this is a list not a ranking!)

1. Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs

Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, #3)I have started the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children Series when I heard it was going to be made into a movie and now I want to finish it. I have to admit that it’s not my favourite, but I just can’t deal with not knowing how something ends.

2. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

23734628Okay, I am seriously excited for this one!!! Fangirl is one of my favourite books and this is like an indirect extension of the story. Couldn’t be happier about the fact that this was written, especially since this is really going into a Fantasy direction, which is unusual for Rainbow Rowell. (Although I have to say that I wish it would have a different cover …)

3. Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling

22716447I loved Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) and I like Mindy’s voice, therefore: new book = I want to read it! This time it is even more background on her Hollywood life as well as her personal relationships and everyone’s fixation on weight.

4. The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick

18392495This book technically came out in August, but hey, that still counts for me. It’s a companion to my beloved My Life Next Door and I can’t wait to return to that universe.

5. Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson

23245337A girl that can dream-walk – count me in!

6. The Lies About Truth by Courtney C. Stevens

24892774Traumatic events, awkward love-story … I don’t know, but this just feels like an interesting story. As morbid as it may sound, I like books that deal with grief.

7. Hello? by Liza M. Wiemer

22663633This just seems cool because it has different kinds of narration, free verse poetry and screenplay-style writing. If these things are balanced right, I usually really like them.

8. Sidekick by Natalie Whipple

26251663I know what being 2nd best feels like and I know how confining it can be if you can’t share your passions with your friends because they aren’t as geeky as you. I think I am going to like this.

9. Queen Song by Victoria Aveyard

25005214Do I really have to explain this? A novella in the Red Queen universe is something I have to check out!!!

10. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

22910900It’s embarrassing, but I haven’t read any of Patrick Ness’ stories before. It’s not that they didn’t sound interesting, but I just didn’t get around to it. However, this one is definitely on the top of my wishlist and I am determined to read it!

  1. At the moment I’m in the middle of a memoir by a Jewish woman who grew up in the Soviet Union called “Education of a Traitor”, and I’m listening to the audio book of “The Book Thief.” After that, I have “A Clash of Kings” and some more Lovecraft on my Kindle, and I’m thinking the next time I have credits for Audible I’ll get the audio version of “Needful Things” by Stephen King.

  2. I can’t sleep, so making my list too – or actually, lists, since I can’t figure out also if it means books I plan to read this fall or books coming out this fall. I am 100% sure I have enough books to fill both, so two lists it is, I don’t care if it’s cheating!

    List 1 – books that I already own but still hadn’t time to read, and/or have been out and on my reading list for a while but I really do plan to getting to them next:

    1. Hidden Huntress by Danielle L. Jensen (Book 2 of the Malediction trilogy) – I am currently about 1/4 in so I don’t know if it counts or if it is supposed to be something I haven’t started yet, but since I still have most of it to go through I decided it does! Loved the first one, this one seems to have a slower pace (and I seem to have less time to read…).

    2, Defiance by C.J Redwine – one of those trilogies that are already complete and have been on my list for a while, but finally picked up book 1. Storyline wise, you’ll keep noticing a repeating theme in my reading choices…

    3. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore – the only book in the Graceling series I am yet to read. Loved the other two and looking forward to being in that world again.

    4. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – I generally try to limit myself to shorter series, and when I don’t (and also when I do) try to join the series late enough so I don’t have years and years to wait until it’s done. I have read the first few chapters a while back and enjoyed it quite a bit, and with 4 books out (plus a book of novellas) I decided it was a good time to join.

    5. Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – wow, seriously, I have no fictional range at all.

    6. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows – she already has a new serious out that I want to read (which absolutely goes with everything else on my list) but I decided I should start with her already completed series first.

    7. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski – another one I have wanted to read for a while but have been patient, and now I will only have to wait for the last book now that two books in the series are already out.

    8. The Martian by Andy Weir – he’s actually an author local to my area so I picked a signed copy from my local bookstore, and the trailer for the movie looks awesome. Haven’t decided if I should make the effort to read before the film is out or at this point it doesn’t matter.

    9. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson – yes, yet another trilogy with probably not dissimilar plot to half of the books above, but who cares.

    10. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – yes, yes, the originality of what I am reading is astonishing. Another local author and a signed book from my local store across from my house…

    List 2 – fall releases plus summer releases which I decided is late enough to be pushed into fall reading:

    1. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – LOVED her other series, and I actually like the idea of going into a familiar world but new story and characters.

    2. Happily Ever After by Kiera Cass – The Selection series is such a guilty pleasure of mine. Hugely flawed in many ways, but so addictive also. I’ve read most of the novellas in this but there’s one novella I haven’t read yet plus a whole bunch of other bonus material I’m super excited to read, so on the list it goes.

    3. A knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R. R. Martin – well, there’s the thing – I am actually only in early book 3 of the series. Since I try to have the rule of waiting until a series is almost finished, and God knows when it will be with this series, I am reading the series very very slowly. So I am actually all for putting in some other realm related reading to prolong what I have to read until the next book finally comes out, assuming it will really be the book before last…

    4. The White Rose by Amy Ewing – one of those series where I totally broke my own principle and read book one before waiting for book 2 to come out, but book 2 is almost around the corner, so yay. There’s also a novella that came out recently for the series that I’ve been holding off reading for a bit.

    5. A Thousand Nights by E.K Johnston – haven’t read anything from that author before, but this sounds really really interesting.

    6. Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson – I am ambivalent over the storyline of this, but liked her other series so willing to give this a shot.

    7. Reawakened by Colleen Houck – was just released last month, so I think it’s completely fair to have it on the fall reading list. I have a backlog!

    8. Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman – same as 7.

    9. A Curious Beginning: A Veronica Speedwell Mystery by Deanna Raybourn – did someone say a mystery? In Victorian London? With great reviews so far? Yes, please!

    10. The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands – not many reviews for this yet, but it seems to be an adventure with lots of codes and puzzles and stuff to solve and my God I love that kind of thing.

    I actually realized I totally can create even a third list, in which I have “books I need to read in the fall before the next book in the series comes out in November/December” but that’s really pushing it… I think that current releases plus stuff already on my shelf is probably more than enough for the time being – although in practice it’s completely possible I’ll get to reading some of the things on that third list before I get through list 2 (but I’m definitely not buying anything until I’m mostly through list 1)…

    • Okay wow! You should just start your own blog! You’d definitely have enough content to fill it 😉

      As for the books, I have heard of most of them, but read very few to none. I can only wholeheartedly recommend the Martian because that turned into one of my all-time favourites after reading it last month!
      You shocked me there with George R.R. Martin because I thought “how could I have missed the release of book 6 in the series?” but it’s not. It takes place before Game of Thrones, so I am going to sit it out.
      Also, I have read the Selection so far, but somehow I am not interested in the companion novellas at all.

      I really do want to read the Throne of Glass series as well as Amber in the Ashes at some point!

      • I read 3/4 Selection novellas – she’s really good at writing different voices, so that was fun. And I think the G.R.R Martin is working on the same principle, really, I like having those worlds being expanded.

        I remember you read A Court of Thorns and Roses, but I’ll get to that one when it has more books…

        I totally do want to start a blog, by the way, have been thinking about it for a while now and I have so much to write about, but I have no time as it is…

        I am really excited about the Martian, actually. Just need to get through the next few weeks… and the movie looks great too.

      • Yeah, I think we had that discussion before, but I am not huge on novellas in general.
        A Court of Thorns and Roses was great 🙂
        Then you should! At least when you have a bit more time. Blogging is fun 🙂
        The Martian is SO good! And funny! The movie looks absolutely gorgeous and I think they did a great job. I am so excited for its release.

  3. Amazing picks!! I can’t wait to read this Patrick Ness’ novel either!! I did read More than this, from him, and it was really good (to the point I couldn’t stop thinking about it, actually!) so I have high hopes for this one, too! 🙂 The boy most likely too needs to be on my list, too, I loved My Life Next Door, and I didn’t get the chance to read this one yet! 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂
      I heard great things about More Than This, but I just never got around to it, but this time I am determined to actually get myself a copy 😀
      My Life Next Door was so brilliant! I loved it and to think that there is a story set in the same world makes me happy.

  4. I forgot about Dreamland! I’m super excited for that, as well as Library of Souls and Carry On. I also agree that the Carry On cover leaves a little to be desired, And Queen Song! I forgot about that, too. I’m super excited for Glass Sword, though I think that the title should have been Golden Sword…y’know, ’cause RED Queen, GOLDEN Sword…

    Thanks for stopping by Writing on a Vintage Typewriter!
