Hey everyone! I hope you’ve all had a nice week since I last did one of these, I had a great couple of days with my friends over the weekend which was really nice. The Great British Bake-Off is also starting tonight which is really just perfect timing, as with everything that has been going on in 2020, I could definitely use the comfort that Bake-Off provides!
Anyway, as it’s Tuesday, I have another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week is another of our annual TBR topics, so I’ll be sharing my Autumn TBR. I did pretty well on my Summer TBR, I read 8 out of the 12 books on my list, and have almost finished the ninth. I have another pretty ambitious TBR for the Autumn, but since I’ve been reading a lot this year, especially since the lockdown, I feel good about having a slightly bigger TBR:
- Sherwood-Meagan Spooner
My September #RockMyTBR book, which I’m reading currently. I’m not as far through as I’d like given that I only have eight days of September left, but I’m hoping I’ll have finished it by the end of next week. It’s been okay so far, but I can’t say I’m loving it.
2. Tunnel of Bones (Cassidy Blake #2)-VE Schwab
My October #RockMyTBR book, I really enjoyed City of Ghosts when I read it back in May and so I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of adventures Cassidy gets up to in this next book, particularly as it takes place in Paris!
3. Assassin’s Apprentice-Robin Hobb
My November #RockMyTBR book, I’ve never read any of Robin Hobb’s books and I know that female authors are still woefully underrepresented in adult SFF, so I definitely like reading those books where I can find them.
4. Seasons of War (Skulduggery Pleasant #13)-Derek Landy
I’ve been meaning to read this one since it was released back in April, but it’s quite a chunky book and I’ve been reading a lot of those recently, so I just haven’t got around to it! I’m definitely making this one a priority for October though, since Tunnel of Bones is only very short.
5. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue-VE Schwab
AHHHH! MY MOST ANTICIPATED READ OF THE YEAR. This is going to be my next Netgalley read and I’ll be starting it either tonight or tomorrow as I’m almost done with Queen of Volts.
6. The Book of Two Ways-Jodi Picoult
Another one of my Netgalley reads (I have quite a few October releases on my TBR, I got a little bit request happy) and I’m super excited for this one as well, as I love Jodi Picoult’s books and it sounds super interesting, kind of like Sliding Doors.
7. Kingdom of The Wicked-Keri Maniscalco
I’ve been reading a lot of Keri Maniscalco recently, having read the Stalking Jack The Ripper series from September of last year to February of this year. I’m super excited for her latest book, it’s a historical witch hunt set in Italy and it sounds so good!
8. These Violent Delights-Chloe Gong
The final one of my current crop of Netgalley releases (thankfully this one comes out in November, three October releases is more than enough!). I’m not usually one for Romeo and Juliet, but this retelling sounds AMAZING: set in 1926 Shanghai with rival gangs and dangerous monsters? YES PLEASE.
9. Where Dreams Descend-Janella Angeles
My copy of this book is finally arriving tomorrow, and I’m super excited! Phantom of The Opera meets Moulin Rouge sounds right up my street and I can’t wait to meet Kallia and all the other performers.
10. Sorcery of Thorns-Margaret Rogerson
My December #RockMyTBR book, I wasn’t a massive fan of Rogerson’s debut but I’ve heard much better things about her second book. I love anything library related, so I’m hoping this one will work much better for me than An Enchantment of Ravens.
11. The Nobleman’s Guide To Scandal and Shipwrecks-Mackenzi Lee
This was on my Spring TBR, but the release date was moved from May to December, so it’s moved over to this TBR.
12. Bloodwitch-Susan Dennard
My current audiobook read, I’m a little over a quarter of the way through. I am enjoying it, although I’m still struggling with all of the different POVs!
So that’s it, my Autumn TBR. I usually only go for 10 books but as I’ve been reading a lot more, I figured it was okay to stretch a little, I’m actually expecting to read far more than 12 books, as I’ve been averaging around 5 books a month since April. What books are on your Autumn TBR? Have you read any of these? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!
I’ll be back next week with another TTT, this time we’ll be talking Favourite Book Quotes, and to narrow it down a little, I’ll be going with my Favourite Book Quotes From Books I Read In 2020.
