Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Fall TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is weekly book blog meme hosted by the lovely girls over at The Broke and the Bookish

So this might be book blogging sin, but I've never really had a specified TBR list. I have books in mind that I know I want to read, but not normally a specific list of books I intend to read. This top ten Tuesday topic, however, has forced me to think about my TBR, so I decided to put together a few of the books that I am hoping to read in the near future - whether they are because of the fall season or just because I want to read them. So without further ado, here they are!

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)
1. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
 Does this really need an explanation?  It comes out today and it is currently flying through the air on its way to me! (I hope)

Gemina (The Illuminae Files, #2)
2. Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Anne Kaufman
Again: is an explanation necessary?

Dracula: The Graphic Novel
3. Dracula: The Graphic Novel by Jason Cobley, Staz Johnson, Bram Stoker
I've been waiting until October to read this because I wanted a Halloween-themed read, and this seems perfect! I've read the original Dracula, so I think it's time for the graphic novel version!

The Reader (Sea of Ink and Gold, #1)
4. The Reader by Traci Chee
A world without books? I nust find out more. I just picked this up from my library this past weekend, so as soon as I finish Empire of Storms it may be up next!

Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns, #1)
5. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
This also just got in this past weekend at my library - why do all your books currently on hold seem to suddenly come in at the same time? I don't know. It's stressful.

Pit Bull: The Battle over an American Icon
6. Pit Bull; The Battle over an American Icon by Bronwen Dickey
I love pit bulls. (Let's be honest, though.... I love all the dogs.) They are some of the sweetest, most playful, and most loyal dogs I've come across. I think reading about the history of pit bulls and their role and stereotype throughout American history sounds fascinating. I really hope this comes in at the library and I get to read it this year!

The Hike
7. The Hike by Drew Magary
Okay, you have to read the blurb for this book on Goodreads. It just sounds so crazy and exciting and I would love to read this before the end of the year. 

The Masked City (The Invisible Library, #2)
8. The Masked City by Genevieve Cogman
I just finished The Invisible Library a few weeks ago and it was so much fun! I really hope to read this sequel soon. 

War and Peace
9. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
I'm technically already reading this, as I made up a little reading plan for myself: if I read eleven pages a day, I will have it finished by the day for Christmas. I started at the beginning of September, and so far so good! It's about time I read this book.

Augustus by John Williams
 I fell in love with John Williams' Stoner earlier this year and have been hoping to read another one of his works for a while now. 


  1. Oh wow, War and Peace? I really need to read that one of these days too. I've been eyeing The Reader for a while now too. Happy reading to you!

    1. War and Peace is certainly daunting, haha - I got tired of it staring at me from my bookshelf. Very excited to start The Reader soon also. :) Happy reading to you as well!

  2. I read War and Peace in high school, and towards the end I was pretty much just reading it out of sheer stubbornness and spite...! :)

    1. Sometimes stubbornness and spite are the only ways to get through things - I can definitely see that happening with me, haha! So far, it's been so much better than I expected, though I have to say some of the war parts are a tad dry for me. Though that could just be because I keep getting lost amidst all of the names and such...

  3. I'm really excited for The Reader!
