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.
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?
