Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/original feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Click the link to go to their site to see the original list for today plus links to a whole slew of other blogs. After you read mine, of course.

Today's topic: Fall TBR
Season TBRs are my favorite TTT. It's about one of the only times I post one. The best I could narrow this down to was 12 (and that was a struggle). This fall is FULL of books I can't wait to sink my teeth into.
17564519 Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1) 23734628 23395680 
A Madness So Discreet 18490533 23358109 Da Vinci's Tiger 
24807186 23310742 The Trouble with Destiny 21947304
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I pre-ordered this from Amazon when it was, like, 55% off (or something like that) and cannot wait for it to come in. Not much longer. September is flying by!
Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
I have this, but haven't read it yet...even though it comes out today. I'm so behind on my pile. I'm so excited for this one, too. Just look at that gorgeous cover! And it's about the Gold Rush which is an era of American history that I find fascinating.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
I just finished a reread of Fangirl a couple of weeks ago, so I'm primed to read this one.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Even though I can read this on the computer, I stopped after the first couple of chapters when it became obvious that I should wait until I had hard copy in my hands. So I've preordered it and am now waiting patiently.
Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
This is probably my favorite cover of the year. I love it so much. It, um, sounds really interesting, too, a historical novel about a girl trapped in an insane asylum.
Radiance by Catherynne Valente
I've read the synopsis for this book a few times. I don't have a clue what it is about, but it sure sounds intriguing...
Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl
I cannot wait for this book about the superhero Black Widow when she was a teen.
Velvet Undercover by Teri Brown
A girl acts as a messenger for the MI5 during WWI. Sounds fun!
Da Vinci's Tiger L.M. Elliott
Can I say that I absolutely love Da Vinci without sounding like a tool? No? Well, I do, and this sounds amazing. (What happened to the amazing cover with the girl looking through the tiger, though? This cover is snoozeville!!)
Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
This may be my most anticipated book of the year. I'm so intrigued by WWII history, and this book about an alternative history where the Axis Powers won just looks so amazing. I may actually read this one next...
Young Widows Club by Alexandra Coutts
A 17 year-old runs off to marry her boyfriend only to have him pass away, leaving her a widow. This sounds fairly original.
The Trouble with Destiny by Lauren Morrill
How charming is this cover? About a girl who finds a contest on a boat to keep her school band going.
I'm sure it will not come as a shock that I am a Star Wars nerd. I'm so excited for the three book coming out that fleshes out and retell the original trilogy.

Well that's all for me. What books are topping your fall TBR lists? Link me up!

Hey lovely readers: I love meeting new bloggers. If you decide to follow, my preference is through Bloglovin'. If you are a new follower, please let me know and leave a link so that I can follow back. Thanks! 


  1. I'm so excited for a lot of these books too! Six of Crows is a given, although I've decided to wait until I've finished the Grisha trilogy before I pick it up. Velvet Underground sounds brilliant, I love war books so I hope I love that one.

  2. I'm looking forward to the Stohl book, a YA superhero tale. Yes! And the Star Wars book could be fun too.

  3. Six of Crows made my list too. I'm also looking forward to Black Widow Forever Red and A New Hope!

  4. Great list! I am also looking forward to reading Trouble with Destiny and Da Vinci's Tiger. I just read Walk on Earth a Stranger a few days ago and enjoyed it.

  5. I love your list!! So many that I want to read too! Definitely Carry On and Madness So Discreet. Also I'm halfway through Illuminae and it's really interesting. I love the unusual format!

  6. Great list!! Carry on and Young Widows Club are both on my TBR list, but I probably will not get to them this fall. I hope you enjoy all of these and I will definitely look for your reviews.

    My TTT:

  7. I love your list! There are so many good books coming out. I hadn't heard of a few of things, so thanks for sharing! My TTT

  8. I can't wait for Six of Crows!!!

    Illuminae…I suffered through reading it on my computer because I just couldn't wait and it was AMAZING. My review posts tomorrow, actually, even though I read it forever ago. But I'm definitely buying it in hardback because I just want it and there were parts of it that were really hard to read on the computer.

    Wolf by Wolf…SO GOOD!!!!! Absolutely loved it, hope you do too! ~Pam

  9. So many on here that I want to read (especially the Star Wars retellings)! Great list!

    My TTT:

  10. sooo many great books on your list! I am curious about Wolf by Wolf and the Star Wars retelling. I totally forgot to put A Madness So Discreet on my list! I hope you enjoy all these books.

  11. So many awesome books on your list, I am super excited for A Madness So Discrete, Illuminae, Black Widow and Carry On!

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
