10 Books on my Autumn TBR | #TopTenTuesday

I can’t possibly be the only one here slightly obsessed with autumn. The leaves changing, the days growing colder and the nights longer, the ability to wear thick sweaters and scarves and gloves and eat soup every night- just, yes.

I mean, assuming Illinois cooperates and we actually get fall. If patterns are followed, we’ll end up with it 90 degrees one day, and a blizzard the next. Oh wait- that’s assuming that we actually get snow. Replace blizzard with -20 degree days and -40 wind chills.

I wish I was kidding.

Anyway, for this week’s #TopTenTuesday prompt (which I’m actually following properly! *gasp*), I’ve thrown together a list of (10!) books I plan on reading this fall- should I have time, a well-pre-developed NaNoWriMo story, and be able to avoid checking out too many other books at the library. Let’s hope.

Wonder Woman, by Leigh Bardugo

wonder woman

I’ve had this on my shelf for a few weeks and I neeeeeeed to read desperately. Ahem.

Moxie, by Jennifer Mathieu


Need! To! Preorder! Pronto!

Just sayin’. I’m all about that feminist revolution.

The Disappearances, by Emily Bain

the disappearances

I’ve had this on my shelf for a few months and yes. Mysterious, lowkey magical, disappearing items… *dies of happiness*

An Enchantment of Ravens, by Margaret Rogerson

An Enchantment of Ravens

The concept of this is so gorgeous and brilliant and I need.

Scythe, by Neal Shusterman


It’s been years, but we’re not going to go in that direction. Unwilling apprentices competing to become a grim reaper figure? *grabby hands*

The Language of Thorns, by Leigh Bardugo

MORE LEIGH BARDUGO. I just adore that woman, okay? And the world of Ravka, Fjerda, Kerch, Novyi Zem, Shu Han, (what am I missing? Help me out) has sucked me in and I will read anything that has to do with it. Especially fairy tales. Aside from more of the existent characters, folklore from that world is probably the top thing on my Grishaverse wishlist.

One Dark Throne (Three Dark Crowns), by Kendare Blake

three dark crowns

So this one I don’t actually own yet. I’ve preordered it, yeah, but as of writing this post it has not yet arrived. I do own Three Dark Crowns, though, which I will, by all means, be rereading in the coming days.

Bone Gap, by Laura Ruby

bone gapAlso in the ‘years’ category. Ahem.

More disappearance/magic/mystery! Yes! I like!

Warcross, by Marie Lu


*stares at book on shelf longingly*

Yeah, I need to read this on soon.

BONUS! The Accident Season, by Moïra Fowley-Doyle

adored The Spellbook of the Lost and Found, and seeing as I own the other Fowley-Doyle book but haven’t read it… yeah, I probably should, soon. Also, it’s got the mystery/magic trope that I love so much, so it’s pretty high on the list.

Right now, I’m reading two nonfiction books at once- one whose title I don’t remember but it’s a memoir about a British journalist and her husband trying to find happiness in Denmark, and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, by Susan Cain. I’m definitely not used to the… information, but I am enjoying them both.

Oh, yeah. Also Dante’s Inferno, for one of my classes. That one’s… interesting, to say the least.

What are you reading this week? Tell me about it! Do you have an autumn (spring?) TBR?

  1. I just started Warcross this morning, before I had to head on over to work. Already can’t wait to get home and actually dive into it, haha!
    After reading and liking The Spellbook of the Lost and Found, I definitely should pick up her other novel as well – even though I don’t own it. Yet.

    Wonder Woman is also a book of your list that I definitely need to read soon!

    Good luck and have fun! ^-^


  2. I love fall too and I never leave the house without my scarf which is more a carpet if anything else 😛

    I’m already working my ass off (sorry!) to gather enough money to buy half of the books on your list. WW, Moxie, Scythe, The Language of Thorns and Bone Gap! Can’t somebody just leave them all on my doorstep? At least I’ve already got Warcross at home waiting for me to pick it up 😀 But I first need to finish my current read: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.

    Great list and I hope you’ll love them all! Here’s my TTT @ Swissbookworm.
