Yessssss, a seasonal TBR, one of my favorite TTT posts to write! This week’s TTT topic is “Books On My Fall 2019 TBR”, in case that wasn’t clear. 😝
Eeek, there’s gonna be a couple repeats on here from my Summer TBR…Lol, I only managed to read 4 of the 10 books on my Summer 2019 TBR. Honestly, this TBR will probably yield similar results; fall semesters are always really busy for me, so I’m only really aiming to read the first 4 or so books on this list. But if the book and homework gods decide to work in tandem, perhaps I’ll be able to accomplish more?!? *fingers crossed*
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
1. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
Technically, I’ve already started this book, but I’m only 15 pages in, so it’s really still on my TBR. Honestly, I really have no motivation to read this book, but my bookclub picked it out and I’m kinda a Co-President, so I really have to read it…Ugh though, I just can’t believe that they picked a 770 page book to read during the semester, that’s really what’s dissuading me from this book.
(If you’ve read this book and liked it, please let me know and motivate me to pick it back up!)
2. The Vine Witch by Luanne G. Smith
I’m part of the FFBC blog tour for this book at the beginning of October, which means I also need to pick it up ASAP. But seriously, vineyards, magic wine, and witches–how great does this book sound?
3. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
Another book club read! I’m so excited, because I’ve been wanting to read this book since I saw the movie!
4. Normal People by Sally Rooney
My book club’s final read! I’ve heard mixed things about it, but I’ve also been intrigued by it since I first learned they were publishing it in the U.S.. Fingers crossed I enjoy it!
5. Gravemaidens by Kelly Coon
Release Date: October 29th
Here comes all the ARCs I failed to get to during ARC August. Thankfully, this one hasn’t released yet, though I don’t know how realistic it is for me to read & review it before it releases on October 29. I have a feeling that October is gonna be a crazy month homework-wise.
6. Two Girls, a Clock, and a Crooked House by Michael Poore
And here be another ARC! I picked it up because I’ve been hoping to get more into MG. Alas, this book released on September 10th and I truly don’t know when I’ll get around to it. But it looks like a great Halloween-y/Fall read, doesn’t it?
7. Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin
I keep hearing more and more about this book and all these amazing things too AND OMG I JUST WANNA GO READ IT SO BAD NOWWWWWW. Like screw homework, life, and responsibilities, I should just go read this book instead.
8. King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
I’m almost caught up on all the LB books (tho once Ninth House releases, I’ll also need to read that). It just warms my heart that LB is continuing to write books in the Grishaverse and ahhh, I can’t wait to see Nikolai and Nina again! I can’t believe I haven’t picked this book up already.
9. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Release Date: October 8th
I mean, you knew this was coming, didn’t ya? Honestly, I just couldn’t not include this book. Eeeek, this book is almost here! I need to remember to go pre-order it, but ahhhh, there are so many different editions to chose from, how do I decide?
10. The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
Release Date: November 19th
And of course, no Fall 2019 TBR would be complete without THE QUEEN OF NOTHING! November is always a hectic month, so I don’t know how likely it will be for me to drop everything and pick up this book, but you better bet I will damn well try my best.
(Also another book I gotta remember to pre-order)
Lol, this is such an ambitious TBR for the fall, especially since I’m taking 3 English classes and reading lots already, but a girl can dream, right?
