Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. Today, it’s all about that fall TBR. I called this TBR the YALC edition, because it consists of a) ARCS I got at YALC and b) books I bought at YALC in July.
The Sacrifice Box by Martin Stewart // Release date January 4, 2018 // This is about 5 friends who discover an ancient stone box in a forest and all make a sacrifice. There are 3 rules: never visit the box alone, never return to it at night, never take back your offering. 4 years later strange things start to happen. One thing is clear: someone broke the rules. Now everyone has to pay.
Moonrise by Sarah Crossan // Release date: September 7, 2017 // I have never read a Sarah Crossan book, but this one sounded too interesting to pass up on. It’s about a guy whose brother is on death row, and his final weeks are here. The cover of this is incredibly beautiful too.
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins // Release date: October 2, 2017 // It’s another Stephanie Perkins book! This is a romance-horror book, “perfect for the fans of Scream Queens”.
This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada // Release Date: November 2, 2017 // The tagline of this is: “3 billion lives at stake, 2 people who can save them, 1 secret hidden in their DNA.” Doesn’t that sound epic?
Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp // Release date: January 2018 // I loved her other book, This Is Where It Ends, so I’m so excited about this one. This is about Corey, who is about to return home to Lost Creek, Alaska, when her best friend dies. The entire community says that Kyra’s death was meant to be, and they’re treating Corey like a stranger. What’s going on?
The Fandom by Anna Day // Release date: October 5, 2017 // This story is about Violet and her friends, who are attending Comic-Con to meet the fandom of The Gallows Dance. Suddenly they get catapulted into their favorite world -for real.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas // I really need to read this. Like, really. I’m probably the only person in this community who hasn’t.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers // I don’t really know anything about this, other than the rave reviews I’ve seen everywhere. People seem to adore this YA science fiction book!
Golden Son (Red Rising #2) by Pierce Brown // I read Red Rising this year, and I don’t want to wait ages to continue the trilogy. I got both the second and third book in a 3 for £10 deal at YALC, which I’m really happy about.
Blood for Blood (Wolf by Wolf #2) by Ryan Graudin // I recently read the first book in this duology, Wolf by Wolf, and I want to finish the duology asap. I really enjoyed the first one, so I have high hopes. I actually managed to get both books signed!
I really hope I’ll get to all 10 books this autumn! Some I have been meaning to read for ages, others are ARCs I managed to pick up at YALC. Have you read any of these? Are any of the ARCs on your to-read list?
