Hi beautiful people,
I am back today with yet another Top Ten Tuesday about covers. TTT is a fun meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish, which is now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s theme about 10 books that are on my Fall TBR. I really enjoy seasonal TBRs because I can to add books themed especially for that time of the year, with Halloween around the corner, it’s just perfect. And I also loved how my TTT Summer TBR helped me focus on my reading in general, I found myself quite efficient during July & August bookwise. To be honest, I actually intended to post this exact same article on this blog two weeks ago, but I saw that it was this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme, so I decided it was worth the wait.
Dread Nation by Justina Ireland
🏷️ Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Young Adult, Horror
This book was initially on my Summer TBR, but the Horror Genre made me want to keep it until October. It just looks like a rollercoaster of emotions. Just seeing the top shelves was overwhelming because there were many and it leads me to imagine how all those themes can come together. I’m particularly happy that this book is written by a black author and this black girl on the cover reminds me of Lexa in the 100, who is one of my all-time favourite characters.
Because I intend to love the hell out of Dread Nation, I definitely will want to jump right next to the sequel. As simple as that! I usually don’t add sequels to my TBR because we never know, but that’s how sure I am that this book is perfect for Halloween. I just can’t wait to read about the zombies and I hope it’ll bring many goosebumps and cold sweat.
What would be Halloween without a good old Agatha Christie thriller? I started reading her books only a couple of years ago, but I’m determined to at least read the most famous ones. Since this one was on my “books to read before dying” list as well as one of the oldest books on my TBR, I told myself that it was the perfect opportunity.
Funny thing, but the first instalment of the series, Caraval, was on my October 2017 project for Halloween and I remember liking it very much. In 2018, I decided to wait one more year before reading Legendary, so that I could binge-read the last book as well, and then, in 2019, I forgot about it. So now not only I want to read Legendary in 2020, but I also want to try Finale if I like this one enough.
I still can’t believe I haven’t read this book yet! It was on all my most anticipated lists of 2019, I even tried to get an ARC of it multiple times, at BookExpo and on all the known dedicated websites. And yet, here I am, still not through that book. Well, my friends, mark my word, I’ll right that wrong during this Fall. I’m a fan in Leigh Bardugo -I met her twice already- and I can’t wait to read her first steps into Adult/Mystery literature.
This book is THE book I’ve been dying to get in 2020. I know it happens in France in the 18th Century and I know Schwab came to France to make researches, and just the fact that she bothered to do so is worth my profound respect. Victoria told me when I met her at BookCon that she put a lot of work into this book and that it was one of those she was the proudest of. The story itself looks amazing, I’m hooked just with the blurb. I NEED THIS BOOK!
I don’t know much about this book. I know it’s about Elfhame, I know that it is somehow illustrated, and I don’t need to know anything more. I want this or I swear I’ll die. The Folk of the Air series made it to my all-time favourite less than one year ago, and this novella is godsent.
I cannot promise I’ll definitely read it, but I can say that I’ll for sure try. This book has been on my TBR since March 2016, and at the beginning of 2020 I promised myself to read or delete all the books added before January 2017, so it’s Outlander’s last chance. I’ve always been intimidated by the length and the beginning of the school year has been busy, but I bought the audiobook with my Audible trial credits so I’ll do my best to give this book the time and energy it needs.
Another book that has just been released and that I know for a fact that I want to read as soon as possible. So far, ARC readers have given it stellar reviews and since it’s a mystery, it’s perfect for my fall list! Also, the cover is gloriously beautiful and I know I’m biased by it.
I have decided to add the Midnight Lie because it was already on my Summer TBR, and I haven’t had the time to read it yet. I’m sure I’ll pick it up soon, probably even before the actual end of Summer, but in case I don’t, I am putting this book on my list once again. Marie Rutkoski and sapphic romance are destined for great things.
Tell me about the books on your Fall TBR.
