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.


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.


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.
