Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR

Hosted by the team over at The Broke and the Bookish, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme for list-loving bloggers. Every Tuesday, participants compile a list of their favorite books, authors, or other literature-related things that fall under a certain category.

This week's topic is a pretty self-explanatory one, but I am excited to participate nonetheless. With its cool breezes and chilly rainfalls, autumn weather provides the perfect atmosphere for snuggling up with a book and I hope I will get the chance to read these ten books during the next three months.

1. United We Spy by Ally Carter
Books are always tied to specific memories for me, and this series carries a flood of nostalgia dating back to seventh grade. Reading this conclusion will therefore be painful, but I am ready to see how Cammie's adventures end and I think she is too.

2. Hereafter by Kate Brian
I will admit it; I cannot help being drawn to scary books around Halloween. The creep factor in Shadowlands was high, so I cannot wait to read its sequel.

3. Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn
This horror novel sounds delightfully terrifying as well, so it is a given on my October reading list.

4. Loud Awake and Lost by Adele Griffin
All You Never Wanted is gritty and gorgeous, so I am anticipating Griffin's next novel that seems to have a similar mood.

5. Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
Maybe reading this right now is a bad idea considering I have not yet fully recovered from Code Name Verity, which I read in May, but I cannot help it. I will be starting this one as soon as I can get my hands on a copy.

6. Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher
This book sounds brilliantly quirky and its author was so nice when I met her at ALA. And she had a beautiful accent. Author accents may or may not influence my desire to read a book.

7. The Elite by Kiera Cass
I did not adore The Selection, but I desperately want to know what happens next in this series.

8. Premeditated by Josin L. McQuein
Read this book's blurb. Tell me it does not send shivers down your spine.

9. Sparks: The Epic, Completely True Blue, (Almost) Holy Quest of Debbie by S. J. Adams
Reading this story's summary made me laugh out loud, so I have high hopes for the actual book. It sounds hilarious and original and I hope my expectations are met.

10. Reboot by Amy Tintera
My other blog, Lit Up Review, runs a monthly book club, and this is our pick for September. I cannot wait to discuss Reboot with our readers!

School may be impairing my reading time, but I have high hopes for fitting these books in this season. What are you planning on reading this fall?

  1. I can almost hear Pincher's accent. And what a great title. I'm off to add it to my wishlist based on those two things!

  3. #5 is on my list, too. I really enjoyed CODE NAME VERITY, so I'm anxious to see how ROSE UNDER FIRE compares.

    Happy TTT!

    1. I've heard Rose Under Fire isn't as good, which scares me. Apparently it doesn't have the intricate plot weaving I loved so much in Code Name Verity, but I am going to try to keep my feelings for the two books separate. It would not be fair to judge one novel just because it is not quite as good as another to which it is remotely related. *crosses fingers*

  4. Hereafters something I would also like to read but it didn't make my list.
    Here's my TTT

  7. I didn't put it on my list, but I need to read ANOTHER LITTLE PIECE this fall, too. And I still need to read CODE NAME VERITY! Also, THE ELITE is really, really good--bump it to the top of your list! Thanks for stopping by!

  9. HOW could I forget about Premeditated?! Ketchup Clouds does sound interesting. And you made me wink, nudge, and smile at the computer when I saw the first one on your list.

    1. Haha. How could I possibly NOT include that first one?

  10. I read Another Little Piece during the Summer and I wasn't able to finish it:( but I hope you like it more than I did! I've also really been wanting to read Reboot, I wish I had known about the book club at Lit Up Reviews, I would have joined in!!

    1. Aw, that's too bad you had to put down Another Little Piece. It's always a shame when that happens, but it frees you up to read other books.

      And you can still join the discussion! We unveil our wrap-up post on the last Saturday of the month, and that's when we mainly encourage discussion. :)

  11. I started Another Little Piece, but its on my computer so I read it really slow.....I have an ARC of hereafter, it is really good! And I finished United We Spy, again no disappointment!

    1. I understand that problem, having read a few e-ARCs on a computer over the course of a month. I'm reading United We Spy right now and agree that it's not at all disappointing. And thanks! The design is mostly courtesy of Shabby Blogs.
