Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is: Top 10 books on your Fall TBR!
Fall is definitely my favorite season, though living in Southern California I don’t get much of one. There are so many good books that I’ve been meaning to read for ages, including some spooky Halloween reads that I have been saving.
As I Descended by Robin Talley: I don’t know very much about this one, other than that it’s supposed to be dark and creepy. A perfect book for Halloween. I’ve only read one Robin Talley book, Lies We Tell Ourselves, which I read earlier this year, and I definitely want to read more.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas: I don’t really have an excuse for why I haven’t read this one… I think I got put off by some of the negative reviews that I’ve seen, particularly ones calling out the problematic aspects of the story. But, I am still going to read it, as I feel that I can offer my own opinion on some of the issues (namely some ace/aromisic passages).
Vicious by VE Schwab: This one is a bit arbitrary, as I actually want to read this book as well as the final two books in the ADSOM trilogy. I read A Darker Shade of Magic a couple of months ago and absolutely loved it, so I definitely want to continue on with that series and read more of Schwab’s books.
Into the Bright Uknown by Rae Carson: I’ve been anticipating this book for a year, and I am so ready. It comes out October 10, and I’m going to read it as soon as I can get my hands on it. This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites of all time, so I’m both dreading and excited for the finale.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: I have wanted to read this book for years, but for some reason I wasn’t ever able to find a copy. I finally got it a few months ago, and I still haven’t read it. I think this is actually the perfect book to read in the winter, but it will be good for fall to, because I think there are some darker aspects that fit with Halloween.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber: This is another one that I’ve been meaning to read for months, but somehow never got around to. I want to read this right after I read The Night Circus, because so many people have compared the two, that’s the best way for me to really see how similar they are.
I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maureen Goo: I’ve heard so many amazing things about this book, and now that I have a copy, I can’t wait to read it. Thus, it’s going to be read in fall. I don’t know much about this one, but I love reading contemporaries during fall, especially ones that are light and sweet and can distract me from the fact that I’m back in school.
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera: Not only does this seem like the perfect Halloween book, but it’s also one of my most anticipated releases of this year. I bought a copy as soon as it came out, and it’s already sitting on my shelf, just waiting for me to pick it up. As more amazing reviews come out about this book, I just get more and more unwilling to put if off until I finish my actual TBR for this month.
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins: A horror novel by the author of some of my favorite contemporaries??? YES, PLEASE. I managed to get an ARC copy of this a few weeks ago, and I put it on my TBR for this month, though now I’m debating waiting to read it until October, since it is the only horror book I have any interest in reading.
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman: This book sounds so beautifully depressing, the kind of book I want to read on a rainy day with a mug of tea and my cat. Since there are lots of those days in fall (at least more than usual), it’s the perfect time to read this book.
