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. This week, it’s all about your fall TBR.
As some of you may know, I have a big problem with TBRs. I never, ever stick to them! So I created a different system. For each season, I have 10 books on my TBR. When the next season arrives, I only get to replace the books on the list that I’ve actually read. I only read 2 books from my Summer TBR: Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb and The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. So I only get to replace 2 out of the 10 books…
All of these were on my summer TBR, but I still haven’t read them. I know, I’m the worst!
The Emperor’s Blades (Chronicles of the Unhewn Throne #1) by Brian Staveley // I think this has now officially been on my shelf for a year. I’ve heard amazing things about it! I’m just scared to start another series at the moment… There are so many I still have to finish.
The Demon King (Seven Realms #1) by Cinda Williams Chima // This has been on my shelf for over 2 years. Maybe even 3. How scary?? I’ve heard so many people rave about this which is actually the reason I haven’t picked it up. I’ve read quite a bit of fantasy, and I’m afraid this won’t live up to the hype for me.
The Way of Kings (Stormlight Archive #1) by Brandon Sanderson // This book is intimidating, let’s be real. It’s ginormous.
Wolf by Wolf (Wolf by Wolf #1) by Ryan Graudin // Another hype book! I still have to buy a copy… And read it…
Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson // I need to read more non-fiction, and this is at the top of my list. It’s a hilarious biography about mental illness. Does that not sound like something you need right now?
Age of Myth (Legends of the First Empire #1) by Michael J. Sullivan // I was so excited for the release of this book! I’m a huge Michael J. Sullivan fan! The only reason I haven’t read this is because it’s quite expensive. I usually read paperbacks as well, and I’ve only really seen the hardcover.
The Well of Ascension (Mistborn #2) by Brandon Sanderson // I should have read this book years ago. I think I read the first book in 2013 or 2014? How shameful.
The Black Company (Companies of the Black Company #1) by Glen Cook // I’m hesitant on this one. I tried to read it a while ago, but couldn’t get into the first chapter so I put it back down. But so many people rave about this fantasy series, so I need to give it another try.
Night Film by Marisha Pessl // This is the first new addition to the TBR! I’ve had this on my shelf for a bit, and I thought it might be nice to add another genre to my TBR list. In case I don’t want to read fantasy…
The Desert Spear (The Demon Cycle #2) by Peter V. Brett // I loved the first book in this series, The Warded Man. I read it in the beginning of 2016, and I’m determined to continue the series soon. I don’t want to leave years between the books! I’d really recommend the first book, I don’t see that many people talking about it.
So that’s my Fall TBR! Have you read any of these? If so, what did you think of them? Do you have any problems sticking to your TBR?
