Top Ten Autumn TBR


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

These are ten books that I hope will while away the miserable autumn evenings (it hasn't stopped raining today). They're either already on my actual TBR or I will be pouncing on them come release day.


Raising Steam

A new Discworld book always goes to the top of the TBR (shush, I know I haven't read Dodger yet). This one has trains in it and, um, axes?

Wild Justice

It has been so long since the last Nadia Stafford book I will be jumping straight on this. OK it's pretty much winter when it's released but I will be thinking about it all autumn.


Amelia Grey's Fireside Dream

I have pre-ordered this one as it sounds like a cosy and fun seasonal read. This also stands as proof that people sharing their new review books can result in sales.

Tainted

Gothic fiction reimagined for a younger generation (well I hope so based on the first book, Broken). I haven't really read much about this book but I loved her writing.


The Vampyre Family

I am so excited about this non-fiction book. What better way to while away the bad weather than sitting around with your chums making up shost stories... of course, in this case, that group of friends inspired generations to come.

The Elites

Everyone has been raving about this one. I haven't the faintest idea what it is about but I bought it on a whim and now I must read it.


Control

I'm behind on my must read every Strange Chemistry book ever so need to catch up. This is the sequel to Shift.

Chimes at Midnight

A must-read series, I'm thinking about holding back on this for Dewey's readathon as I know I will get sucked in and won't put it down for hours.


Dead Jealous

You have to read something a bit creepy during the autumn months... Plus I don't need to walk home in the dark any more so don't need to be worried if I end up being too creeped out. Still, how scary can YA be?

The Oathbreaker's Shadow

When the cold and dark gets too much, head towards the desert. The cover alone looks nice and warming.

  1. Kelley Armstrong is definitely on my TBR too. I've missed her books and can't wait to read Omens.

    Nice list, hun :).

  2. I've heard The Oathbreaker's Shadow is really good, so I hope you enjoy it, I really want to read it myself! I have Abby Clement's second book on my tbr pile, but I think this one sounds like a really seasonal read as well. Great list!

  3. I really need to read more Discworld books! I recently bought Broken by A E Rought as I loved Frankenstein and love gothic fiction so hopefully I'll like it enough to get the sequel! The book on Byron, Shelley etc sounds really interesting, will need to check it out asap :) Great list!

  4. The new Discworld book grabbed my attention instantly! Alas, while Goodreads thinks it's coming in November (and it has a cover), Amazon doesn't think it's coming until March (and they don't have a cover.) Darn!

    1. It's definitely out in November in the UK. You can always order a copy from The Book Depository if there's a long wait :)

  5. I've heard great things about the works of Terry Pratchett and Kelley Armstrong, but I have to admit that I've never read their books! I am thinking I will have to remedy that somewhat soon!

  6. I've preordered the new Abby Clements too (yay autumn reading!) and THANKS TO YOU I already have the Byron one on my wishlist. I wondered whether to do this week's TTT as well, but I have a feeling it'll just be a rehashing off my R.I.P. post so I might leave it this time... *sobs at the thought of voluntarily not making a book list* :P

    1. I do sometimes think I'm just mentioning the same books over and over again. So I limit my lists BUT they are handy when I don't have anything better to post ;)
