Top Ten Tuesday: My Fall TBR

September 22, 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they select a topic every week, and the rest of us get to make Top Ten lists based on that topic. This week’s topic: Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR. If you follow my blog regularly, you know I’m pretty bad about predicting what books I’ll be reading in a given season. I did well with my spring TBR, but I only read 4 out of 13 of my summer TBR…..ugh! I am going to make yet another attempt to predict my fall readings….I’ll let you know how I do come winter TBR time!

In Preparation for the Anderson’s YA Conference:

The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy – I’ve already started this one, so I’m pretty confident that I won’t score a goose egg on reading this list by winter :). If you like suspense, this book is for you!

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – This book has been getting RAVE reviews, and I am next on the hold list at the library. The story of a young woman who is confined to her home due to her extreme allergies, and how she manages to find love in spite of it.

Spooky Choices for Halloween:

Blood and Salt by Kim Liggett – This is being described as a romantic horror that is a cross between Romeo and Juliet and Children of the Corn. Tell me that you don’t want to grab this one as well!

Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics – Another story that promises to leave me on the edge of my seat!

Slasher Girls and Monster Boys by Assorted Authors: Really? Is there any book title that screams Halloween more than this one? And…..many of our favorite authors!

Nonfiction November Selections:

Solutions and Other Problems by Allie Brosch – Brosch’s book Hyperbole and a Half had me laughing out loud, and I so can’t wait to laugh along with her newest.

Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari – This modern look at dating and love is supposed to be highly entertaining.

Holiday Love:

My True Love Gave to Me by Assorted Authors – This book received rave reviews last holiday season, and I’m planning to make it my number one holiday read this season. There are so many authors that I love that contributed to this short story collection.

Those Books That I’ve Won That I Can’t Seem To Get To (you may notice that this list is eerily similar to my summer TBR):

Independently Wealthy by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal – I won this several months ago, and I feel some guilt when I look over at it and realize I have yet to read and review this one.

Everly After by Rebecca Paula – I’m not sure this is my kind of book, but I want to give it a chance. As time has gone on, I’ve become far more selective about the giveaways I sign up for!

True Colors by Krysten Lindsay Hager – Ummmmm…I have a hard time believing this one is up my alley. It is set in Grand Rapids, and I’d love to read a book set in this city. I will give this one a try as well, but I have serious doubts about it!

The Cruel Country by Judith Ortiz Cofer – I won this one recently, and this one seems like it is more up my alley. It is getting good reviews, and I love the idea of reading a book set in Puerto Rico.

And Last But Not Least…..the Release That I Just Can’t Wait For:

White Collar Girl by Renee Rosen – You all know how much I adore Renee and her writing, and I’ve already written her release event in my calendar in MARKER! I can’t wait to read her newest, which is being promoted as her best yet!

What books are you planning to read as the weather cools off?

    Nice list! BLOOD AND SALT is on my list today, too. It sounds amazing. I’ve read EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING and … it was okay. I’m in the minority on this one, though — almost every review I’ve seen has been super positive.

    Happy TTT!

      Hi Susan! Thanks for visiting! I’m kind of glad to hear a minority opinion of Everything, Everything. Sometimes when a book or movie gets way over hyped, the bar is set high and my expectations are crushed. It’s good to get balance. Let me know if you read Blood and Salt!

    I got My True Love Gave to Me for Christmas last year and was pleased to own it. I felt like it was a collection of stories that I’d enjoy revisiting over and over again.

    Ghost On The Lake by Alex Alexander is an absolutely perfect fall read for those who enjoy a good paranormal fiction.
    It’s the first in a series that looks set to be a huge hit if the next ones are even half as good as this first installment.
    A mans soul is separated from his body as he embarks on a fascinating and enlightening spiritual journey that offers up some very clever and unexpected plot twists. I was totally hooked into this book until the end and will probably give it a second read too. Good characters, solid writing and an original plot that leaves you with plenty to ponder.
    Highly recommended fall reading.
