Top Ten Tuesday - Fall TBR List

I'm linking up with The Broke and the Bookish again for Top Ten Tuesday this week!

The theme this week is the ten books topping your TBR list this season (which, for me, is spring rather than autumn). I'm not great at keeping up with TBR lists, partly because I'm reliant on the library for most of my books and they rudely refuse to buy the books I want, or I go to get them on my Kindle, and they're like $15, which seems completely ridiculous for an e-book, so I wait around in the hopes that they'll go on sale and then forget all about their existence.

ANYWAY. That's a really long winded way of saying that I'm 10,000% sure that I will not read all ten of these books between now and the end of November (summer starts on 1 December here, so I'm using that as the cut off!). But I *do* have several of them on preorder, so I'll at least cross off a few!

Allegiant - Veronica Roth
OMG SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOOK. Especially now that the Divergent movie trailer has been released.

Curtsies and Conspiracies - Gail Carriger
I'd prefer if it were a new Parasol Protectorate book - the first book in the Finishing School series was good but not great - but I love Carriger's writing so much that I'll take whatever I can get!

Mad About the Boy - Helen Fielding
I adore the Bridget Jones books, perhaps because I relate a little too much to Bridget's special brand of crazy. So I was crazy excited to see that there was a new one coming out. Although given that it's been the better part of fifteen years since The Edge of Reason, it will be very interesting to see if Fielding can still deliver the same hilarity without making Bridget seem a wee bit pathetic...

Raising Steam - Terry Pratchett
Every Discworld book automatically gets added to my TBR list, and they've always delivered in spectacular fashion. I have high hopes that this will be no exception.

More Than This - Patrick Ness
I've adored every single Patrick Ness book that I've read, even when they've made me ugly cry like a lunatic. This one sounds completely intriguing.

Hyperbole and a Half - Allie Brosh
The minute Allie announced that she had a book coming out, I went and preordered it. I've missed her blog so much over the past year or so, so I'm insanely excited about her book.

Never Fade - Alexandra Bracken 
I had a few niggling problems with The Darkest Minds, but I'm still dying to know what happens next!

Wild Justice - Kelley Armstrong
I've been a little dubious in the past about the Nadia Stafford books. I've enjoyed them, but they've always lacked a little bit of the readability that I loved in Armstrong's other books. That said, it's been a long time since Armstrong's added to the series and I'm interested to see where she takes it.

A Study in Silks - Emma Jane Holloway 
Steampunk and magic and a dose of Sherlock Holmes-y stuff? Um, YES PLEASE.

Two - LeighAnn Kopans
I really enjoyed One, despite having some initial hesitations about the insta-love-ness of the relationship between Mer and Elias, so I'm really looking forward to this coming out next month.

What new releases are you excited about over the next few months??

  1. A Study in Silks sounds interesting, may have to add that one to my TBR list as well. This list has gotten so much longer today, and I am not even currently trying to shorten it again because I'm still reading all the other books that aren't on the list (which is probably why I suck at making TBR lists in the first place).

  2. I just reviewed A Study in Silks and I really liked it. The world-building is really rich. Here's my TTT
    Vilia @ Backchatting Books

  3. You've reminded me I need to add Patrick Ness' Chaos Walking trilogy to my TBR list. I loved A Monster Calls. I just started Divergent, can't wait to get farther in. Enjoy your fall reads!

  4. AHHHH ALLIGENT! I have it pre-ordered and I'm so excited. Although I need to read Insurgent first... And I think I'm giving up on TBR piles. I already quit one book I was supposed to read for this month and my mind is wandering over to other books. It feels too much like a homework assignment.

  5. I'm excited about Allegiant already and I haven't read Insurgent yet! Great list!

  6. Allegiant! I'm so excited for this one. I can't wait to see how the series ends.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the first book in the Finishing School series, but I do plan on reading Curtsies and Conspiracies to see if things get better.

    I haven't read any Patrick Ness books yet and I've been meaning too.

    Never Fade is going to kill me. I loved The Darkest Minds and I've heard the sequel is even more brutal so I am both excited and terrified.

    I haven't read any of Armstrongs books outside of The Women of the Otherworld but I've been meaning to. Hopefully Wild Justice will be good.

    A Study in Silks sounds pretty good. I'm going to have to add that to my tbr.

    I need to read One and Two. I've heard some good things.


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
