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.
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?
