Top Ten Tuesday | Books on my Fall '16 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday Photo Banner

Hello everyone! It’s that time of the week again! Top Ten Tuesday is a book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Basically, you get a different bookish topic every Tuesday, and you comprise a list of ten (or however many you’re able to list) relating to said topic.

This week’s topic is “Ten books on your Fall TBR.” Now this time of the year is both elating and devastating- elating because so. many. good. books, devastating – well, mainly for my bank account. And because there are simply so many books I want to get to this season, here are just a few that are top-priority. Since I tend to read more fantasy and paranormal than anything else in the fall, winter months, this list will be heavy with those genres. So, let’s get into it!

Crooked Kingdom (The Dregs #2) by Leigh Bardugo

Is this a surprise? It really shouldn’t be. Crooked Kingdom is my most anticipated release of the year; Six of Crows was one of my favorite books of last year, and I’m so excited to touch base with these characters, dive back into the world. Fully prepared for it to break me, though.

The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

This is (most probably) the October pick for the new Keep It Diverse Book Club that a few friends and I created. I’ve heard fantastic things about this book, so I’m super excited to get into it. This is one I will definitely be getting to in October.

The Devourers by Indra Das

Mostly a cover-buy, but the fact that it revolves around South Asian/Indian mythology was also a selling-point. I recently listened to a podcast with the author, and he sounded like such an intelligent, lovely guy. After listening to the podcast, I bumped it up near the top of my TBR!

The Young Elites by Marie Lu

I probably (morally speaking) should read Legend before I read The Young Elites, but TYE just sounds so much more appealing? The protagonist is not a hero! Books like that are automatic loves for me. With the last book coming out very soon, this series is just pulling me in!

Fire Boy by Sami Shah

I might already have finished this book by the time this post goes live (I’m scheduling ahead, wow I can’t believe I’m actually being productive), but I’m so excited to be reading this book! It’s set in the urban capital of Pakistan (Karachi) and is a genre fiction horror/fantasy/paranormal about djinn and the creepiest creatures in South Asian mythology. The author is a prominent Pakistani comedian, and I genuinely love his work. Already started reading this, and I’m terrified but loving every second of it!

Iron Cast by Destiny Soria

I have an e-galley of this book, and I’m super excited to get to it (I’ve been saying this about all the books in this post, haven’t I?) I’ve heard really great things about this book, and I know that it’s a diverse read- bonus points!

This Is Our Story by Ashley Elston

Again, not gonna lie- this was a cover-discovery. I came across the cover on Netgalley and I knew I had to request it. So glad my request was granted; I love thrillers, and this book has great ratings on Goodreads so far! Will be reading it around Halloween, hopefully.

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

I was a little late to the Lunar Chronicles party- I started reading after Cress had been released, but I grew to really enjoy that series. I’ve only ever read one Alice in Wonderland retelling (Splintered), and I despised it- hopefully, this one is better. I trust Marissa Meyer to give me a cohesive, entertaining story!

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman

This is another one I’ve heard really great things about. It also fulfills one of the categories in the Fall Book Bingo challenge, so that’s a plus. I also know that the author is a historian, and she mixes a ton of fantasy and history together to make for a compelling read. Hopefully I’ll be able to read the first two books in the series before the third comes out next year.

Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil by Melina Marchetta

I’ve only read Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta, but I remember loving it. It was profound- beautifully written and so, so heartbreaking. I plan on reading Finnikin of the Rock soon too, but I’ve got my eyes set firmly on this one. I’ve heard it has a ton of representation too!

That’s it for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! Have you read any of these books, or plan on reading them in the fall too? Let me know in the comments below; as always, thanks for stopping by and happy reading! 🙂

  1. I am SO excited for Crooked Kingdom – definitely one of my most anticipated books of the year. 🙂 And The Young Elites is one of my favorite books ever, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous choices! <3

  2. I’ve been wanting to read Iron Cast since I found it randomly on goodreads but I was declined for a galley though I can’t wait for it to come out. I’ve also wanted to read Legacy of Kings for awhile but I’ve never managed to get to it, hopefully soon

  3. Crooked Kingdom is on my list this week as well, I feel like it’s on most people just because it has to be one of the most anticipated releases of this year. I can’t wait to get started on my copy, I need to know how everything ends for Kaz and his gang! 🙂
    Heartless is another of my most-anticipated releases too, I love Marissa Meyer and Alice in Wonderland so I have a feeling the two added together is going to be a winning combination.
    I also hope you enjoy The Girl is Everywhere, it’s a favourite of mine so I’ll be looking forwards to seeing your review for it.
    Great picks for this week! 😀

    • Oh yeah, definitely. Watch CK blow every single new release out of the water. I went to a signing, and I can honestly say that I’ve never seen a turnout like that before, esp. for a YA event! I foresee it climbing super quickly to the top of the NYT Bestsellers’ list. 😀

      I definitely trust Meyer with her storytellings, so I’m looking forward to see what she does with Alice!

      • I feel it’s already done that, on Instagram alone so many people are posting pictures and stories of it arriving! Oh wow that signing must have been amazing. I’d love to see Leigh Bardugo in real life.
        Same here, if it’s anything like the Lunar Chronicles as well it’s going to be a favourite of mine! 🙂

  4. Great list, I hope you will enjoy all of these! I want to read The Girl From Everywhere sometime, it sounds like a great story, and I love the cover. I read Legacy of Kings and ended up not loving it as much as I thought I would. Hopefully that won’t be the case for you 🙂

  5. Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil sounds good. We used to use that phrase a lot when we were younger.I guess that is why the title stands out for me. Enjoy your books.

  6. Obviously I have Heartless and Crooked Kingdom on my list as well. I have an interest in Iron Cast because diverse fantasy read, but the synopsis hasn’t really taken me in.
