Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s topic is my fall TBR list! Sadly, I haven’t yet finished my Summer TBR list, because half of the books haven’t made it through the library system to me yet! So, having learned my lesson, for fall I’m going to go mostly with books I already have in my possession, whether that’s books checked out, books I actually own, or books I have borrowed from elsewhere.
First off is Lord of the Wings – it’s #19 in an avian-themed murder mystery series, which I didn’t know when I picked it up. (I love birds, though, so that sounds right up my alley.) I picked it up because it’s a murder mystery set on Halloween, and I need a Halloween-themed book for PopSugar’s Reading Challenge, AND Litsy’s Booked Challenge! The cover even looks Halloween-themed!
In my current library books I have Educated, Tara Westover’s memoir, which I talked about in my Education-themed Top Ten. Another library book is Swastika Night, which hits Popsugar’s “Woman writing under a male pseudonym” prompt. I’m getting down to the wire on PopSugar’s challenge, I need to buckle down and get the rest of those prompts read! In that vein, I also need to read No is Not Enough, which was gifted to me last Christmas by my awesome mother-in-law.
I have a September Book of the Month to read, The Silence of the Girls. I’m reading Headscarves and Hymens along with Book Riot’s Persist book club, and I need to read Summer Bird Blue before the 27th, so I can join in YA_Pride’s book discussion on Twitter. (That requires getting my hands on the book first, though!)
I should be receiving my Barnes & Noble Book Club copy of An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, Hank Green’s debut novel, sometime after the 25th, and I also preordered Girls of Paper and Fire from Barnes & Noble, because it looks amazing.
For my tenth book on my Fall TBR, I’ll go with Look Me In The Eye, a memoir of a man with Asperger’s. I’ll have to add it to my Autism Reading List.
I’m sure I’ll read more than these 10 this fall – I need to read 46 more books to make my goal by the end of the year! What are you planning to read? Are you going to Barnes & Noble’s book club meeting in October to discuss An Absolutely Remarkable Thing?
Whaaaaaaaat! A novel by Hank Green?! I have to add that to my list. I love Vlog Brothers, and I can’t believe I somehow missed this. Great list! Here’s my TTT.
Yes! I’m so excited! And then Barnes and Noble picked it for their next book club meeting in October! They announced it at the last meeting, and I totally fangirled all over the place and surprised everyone else there, lol!
I attend to my local Barnes And Noble book club every other month.
I’m looking forward to the new book club book by Hank Green!
I really wish either of the B&Ns closest to me had a book club that met more often, but neither one does. Just the nationwide, quarterly club. My library has a couple different book clubs, but I’ve been keeping an eye on what they read, and it’s never anything interesting.
My local Barnes And Noble that is down the street just started the book club. I would speak to the Barnes And Noble manager to put together a book club , depending where you live though because if you live in a small city many people might not show up. Last meeting we only had 6 and that’s including me and we are in Vegas.
Ever since reading Starfish, I just NEED Summer Bird Blue in my life! I’m hoping to get it as soon as it’s released but we’ll see. Pre-ordering really doesn’t make a difference over here because the books arrive two weeks late every single time.. So I’m hoping one of the English sections in a bookstore has it sooner than that, haha.
I still have to read my ARC of Girls of Paper and Fire but I’m hoping to do that later this week. Fingers crossed I can add to all the raving reviews about it! 😀
Ooo, jealous of your ARC! I’m probably going to have to order Summer Bird Blue if I want it in time. My library has it ordered, but their processing time to get it into the system seems to be around 5 weeks. Which won’t get it to me in time!
I got lucky at a convention – is all!
Awh that sucks! I sometimes pre-order books but Amazon always messes it up and then sends them two weeks late or something.. No point in pre-ordering then, is there? :’) Which sucks because then my boyfriend’s on my case about ordering books and the “but I preordered it!”-rule doesn’t count. :’)
The Silence of the Girls is on my list too!
