This week’s TTT topic is “Books On My Fall 2020 TBR.” I’m ecstatic it’s time for a seasonal TBR because I love compiling book lists! (Even though I haven’t been reading much lately and I completely failed at my summer TBR list aka only read 1 of 10. BUT we’re not gonna talk about that.) Ahhhh, it feels like it’s been so long since I’ve participated in a TTT (according to WordPress it’s been nearly 2 months?!?! crazy). I’ve definitely been in a weird funk and reading slump lately so fingers crossed this post helps me claw my way back into reading (and blogging tbh).
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 Deep by Rivers Solomon
Here for all the stories about mer-people and sapphic romances. I finally got my copy in early August and I can’t believe I haven’t read it yet! (Yes, this is a repeat from my Summer TBR.)
2. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
Still repeatedly mentioning this book (yes, this was also on my Summer TBR). Really need to get on this reread though, because the end of the year and the release of the 4th book is coming upon us quickly!
3. Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
This year especially, I have been continually obsessed with and craving romance books. I’ve heard great things about this book and author, so I actually purchased a physical copy of this novel for myself recently and I’m excited to get to it!
4. The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi
Meant to have this read before its release date today, but alas, the reading slump is real. I’m currently in the middle of rereading the first book in a buddy read with Sammie @ The Bookwyrm’s Den and we’ll definitely be moving onto this one soon! (well, hopefully)
5. The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson
My writing buddy recently started reading this book, reminding me that I actually own this book and haven’t read it yet?!?! Definitely wanna hop on this book soon so we can discuss. I also don’t read enough MG and really need to change that.
6. The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Been meaning to read this book for YEARS since I picked it up at a local bookstore as a underclassman in college.
7. The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson
Political intrigue fantasy, a sapphic romance, rave reviews…why haven’t I read this up yet??
8. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Whoa, how did this come out a year ago? And how am I still slacking on Leigh Bardugo books??
9. Lock Every Door by Riley Sager
Thriller, another genre I need to read more of. Also, still really need to read this so I can return it to my grandfather’s wife since she kindly loaned me her copy, oh, almost over a year ago.
10. The Girl in Red by Christina Henry
With the spooky season approaching, it would be fun to pick up a horror fairytale retelling, right? Even though I’m not sure I’ve ever read a true horror book before?!?
Wow, I’m really proud of myself for incidentally creating a TBR list with a wide range of genres and age categories.
