Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Autumn’s great for cosying up with familiar characters and the odd spooky book as we approach Halloween. It’s also that time of year where I start to look over my TBR and lists of books I should read this year… Yeah, not so much progress made there! Let me know if you’ve read any of these.
After You by Jojo Moyes
I’m a little wary of a sequel, but early murmurings are sounding positive and how could I not? Me Before You ripped my heart out, I want to know she’s doing OK. Plus I have loved all of Jojo’s books I’ve read so far.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
I bought a lovely special edition so I should really read it rather than just look at it right?
The Shepherd’s Crown by Terry Pratchett
So many people rushed to read this but that just means it’s all over sooner. *sniff* I do still have Raising Steam left to read from Discworld but I’m looking forward to visiting Tiffany again first. I got a fancy, sparkly edition, which means I have to have an opportunity to read it without ruining it.
The Potion Diaries by Amy Alward
Just seems like a fun read. As the nights draw in we need some fun.
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
I nominated this for book group so that I would definitely read it and then it ended up being chosen the month I was in America. It’s another book I bought a special edition of, think this is becoming a theme…
The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro
My lovely boyfriend bought me this when I needed cheering up months ago. I imagine reading it will make the gift more worthwhile. Oh yeah, I think it’s a special edition too…
A Red-Rose Chain by Seanan McGuire
Not that I have guilty pleasures as there’s no guilt here, but October Daye is one of the few urban fantasy series I have kept up with. Every now and then I feel like trying to get back into some others. Maybe 2016 will be the year of series.
Chimera by Mira Grant
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
I think this will be my Halloween read for this year.
Monster by by C.J. Skuse
It sounds like a good book for Halloween but is set over Christmas. It’s out this month though, so I’ll allow the C-word to sneak in early.
