Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
It’s been ages since I participated in a Top Ten Tuesday. But I’m back at it! Like many booknerds, I’ve got a massive TBR that never seems to shrink. Every time I do a TBR post, I realize that I’m really bad at actually sticking to a TBR. But, here I am anyway. A lot of the books on this list have been on my list for ages. Some of them were even in my Top Ten Tuesday post from May of of this year.
There are a lot of books on my to-be-read list — some are from my stack of unread books, some are recent 2017 releases, and some are yet to be released.
Here are 10 books I hope to read this fall:
1. Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy
I fell in love with Julie’s writing when I read Dumplin’. I’ve been wanting to read Ramona Blue since I first heard about it. A friend lent me her copy and it is getting closer and closer to the top of my TBR stack.
2. Smoke by Dan Vyleta
I saw this book at the bookstore a few years ago and thought the cover was so intriguing. The cover copy promises a wild ride full of a ton of intrigue.
3. The Art of Secrets by James Klise
This is another book that promises a really layered story, told in different types of documents.
4. The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
Classic fantasy series. All three books currently sitting on my shelf. I need to read it.
5. The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
This is another fantasy novel that’s been on my shelf for ages.
6. What Happened by Hillary Clinton
The 2016 United Stated Presidential election was the first time a woman was on the ballot for president. I want to hear Hillary Clinton’s take on it, on what happened, what she would do differently, and what her plans for the future are.
I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, and this is the second non-fiction book on my fall TBR. Sam is hilarious and smart and I know this book will be just as fun and interesting as her first book.
8. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
Last Friday was #ChristieDay, Agatha Christie’s birthday. A friend told me that And Then There Were None is her favourite Christie novel and I’ve had it on my Kobo for almost two years. It’s time to read it.
9. Room by Emma Donoghue
This is another novel that’s been on my Kobo for a loooong time. I love that it is narrated from the perspective of the young child and have heard from many readers that it is a phenomenal read. Again, it’s time to read it.
10. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
This list started with Julie Murphy’s most recent book and it is ending with her first book. It promises to be an emotional read, but it’s Julie Murphy, so I must read it.
