Top 10 Books on My Fall TBR

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

I rarely stick to set TBRs but I'm truly going to try to read all of these books before the year is out. I plan on filling my October TBR full of creepy and horror reads so I may get side-tracked with those. There are just so many good books out there; how can one choose what to read anymore?

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's topic is: Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR.

The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle: I'm definitely intrigued with the synopsis. There's a family that seems to be cursed as accidents mysteriously occur around the same time each year. Yet, they all survive them. It sounds strange which is the perfect type of book I'm looking for to get me into the Halloween feels this year.

The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker: This one has been sitting on my shelf for so long. (Actually, most of these books have been sitting on my shelf for too long. Oops.) I haven't been reading supernatural/paranormal lately. However, this fall I plan to dive right in to several. This one is half supernatural, half fantasy with a magical world backdrop. It sounds like my cup of tea!

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera: What book I really want to read of his is his latest, They Both Die at the End. However, I told myself I can't buy anymore of his books until I decide if I like his writing or not. More Happy Than Not follows the journey of a boy who considers altering his memory to forget his feelings for his best friend.

Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh: I'm seeing a pattern here; I will purchase the book when it first releases and then I won't read it until months later. There are just so many books! I adored Renee Ahdieh's The Wrath and the Dawn duology so I needed to read her Mulan retelling. And I will read it this fall, hopefully. Girl power, here we come!

Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen (1/30/18): This book doesn't release until next year! However, Bloomsbury sent me an ARC to get started early. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Shalia is Queen of the Bonelands. Her husband vows to exterminate all the Elementae, those who can control fire, wind, earth, and air. Shalia, herself, discovers her own powers which, if found by others, could be dangerous. It sounds like a mix between The Last Airbender and X-men, doesn't it? I can't wait for it to release!

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon: This book was definitely bought because of the hype. However, it also sounds like a book that I will absolutely love. Arranged marriages, summer camp, and a super cute romance: count me in!

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater: I just finished the first in The Raven Cycle series, The Raven Boys. It was such a fantastic book and I can't wait to read the next one, The Dream Thieves.

Shutter by Laurie Faria Stolarz: Stolarz is one of my favorite authors. I will read anything by her. Shutter follows a young photographer who falls for a boy who is accused of killing his parents. The photographer, Day, plans to prove his innocence by showing everyone the side of him she sees. This book sounds a bit different than what she has published before so I'm excited to see where she goes with this story.

These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly: If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I love taking pictures of this book. It is so gorgeous, complete with a vintage map of New York City. Yet, even though I'm so picture-happy with this book, I've never once read it. When Jo's father is mysteriously killed, it is up to Jo to crack the case wide open.

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab: I confess, I have crumbled in the face of this hype. There is so much hype surrounding this series and I'm so curious as to why. The story sounds incredibly original and I'm always on the look out to read more about alternate universes. The cover is beautiful. Hopefully, by winter, I will have read this whole series and can join in the discussion.

What are you reading this fall? Which book should I read first?

  1. I've had More Happy Than Not on audio for a long time now and just never get around to actually listening to it.

    The Shades of Magic series is good, but not the best thing I've ever read. I liked the second book the most.

  2. OOh nice! I still want to read Shutter and The Accident Season! Nice picks!!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Fantastic list of books! I especially enjoyed A Darker Shade of Magic and When Dimple Met Rishi.

  4. Oh man I've had A Darker Shade of Magic and her other book Vicious on my TBR pile but I haven't gotten around to reading it. Fall seems like a good time to read her books though from what I've read of the premises but I don't think I'll be getting around to either this year. Maybe next year?

  6. These Shallow Graves looks like a very interesting read!!

  7. I loved A Darker Shade of Magic, and The Dream Thieves was my favourite TRC book, so I hope you enjoy both of those!

  8. Your thoughts on When Dimple Met Rishi mirror my own! It may be a summer setting, but I'm still curious about this one, and HOPE to have the time to read it long before next summer. :) Happy fall TBR-ing - and thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  9. I really enjoyed When Dimple Met Rishi and The Accident Season so I hope you do too. :) Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous choices! <3

  10. I can honestly say that The Dream Thieves, These Shallow Graves, and A Darker Shade of Magic are amazing! TDT and ADSOM are two of my favourite books, and TSG got me out of a really awful reading slump when I read it!

    More Happy Than Not is the only Silvera book I haven't read yet, and I am really ken to. I bought an ebook copy AGES ago, so I have no idea why I haven't picked it up yet. Probably because I never turn on my Kobo, I always use my Kindle, haha.

    I hope you like all these books when you get around to them!

  11. I read and really enjoyed The Dream Thieves, When Dimple Met Rishi and ACOL! I really hope you end up enjoying them whenever you get around to them! I've got Adam Silvera on my overall list too - I read They Both Die At The End just a few days ago and while I don't quite understand the hype, I enjoyed the writing and want to read more of Adam's work!
