Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. There is a new subject each week and this week's theme is "Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR List".

Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

I loved the first book, Walk on Earth a Stranger and I'm a big fan of her Girl of Fire and Thorns series so I have high expectations for Like a River Glorious.

A Most Novel Revenge by Ashley Weaver

This is the third book in the Amory Ames mystery series and I thought the first two books were a lot of fun. I am looking forward to reading this sometime soon.

The Queen's Accomplice by Susan Elia MacNeal

I love this historical mystery series set during WWII and this one has a plot involving a serial killer who is copying Jack the Ripper (but targeting female British spies).

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

This is a standalone novel about the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland when she was a teen. I am curious to see if the author will make her a likable protagonist or give her the Queen Levana treatment. Hopefully I will like this more than Fairest.

Belgravia by Julian Fellowes

I can't believe I haven't read Belgravia yet. I meant to read it on my recent vacation but I ended up not packing it. 

The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan

I just found out about this book yesterday and I think it sounds wonderful. I like that the main character is a librarian and it is all about books.

One Half From the East by Nadia Hashimi

This is the author's first Middle Grade novel and like her other books, it is set in Afghanistan. I am a huge fan of The Pearl That Broke Its Shell and one of the characters from that book appears in this one too.

United by Melissa Landers

I will hopefully start this in the next couple of weeks. I just finished rereading Invaded and I can't wait to find out how the story ends.

Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine

I loved Ink and Bone and I've had this checked out from the library for a couple of months now so I really need to read it soon.

The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

I want to finish this before the end of the year. I started rereading The Lord of the Rings earlier this year but after finishing The Two Towers, I decided to take a break from it. I think fall is the perfect time to read fantasy fiction so hopefully I'll get this finished before December!


  1. I am so excited for Heartless! I hope it doesn't disappoint. I also hope you enjoy Belgravia! Great list, Christina!

  2. Of course I want to read Heartless, and it's on my list today too. But The Bookshop on the Corner is another book I heard about recently that I'd like to read, so I'm happy to see it on your list. I haven't had much luck lately with bookstore books, but I keep trying. My favorite is Bookends by Jane Green.

  3. Oh gosh I forgot to put Like A River Glorious on my list this week! I am so excited to get to that one :) And Heartless. And United! Ahh so many good books coming out this fall! Happy reading :)
    here's my TTT!

  4. There's a few fantasies on the list that I've been wanting to read and haven't gotten to them. I love the cover of the Rae Carson novel. It reminds me of the old fantasy novels I read when I was a teenager.

  5. The Bookshop on the Corner keeps popping up on various lists of upcoming books I have seen. It sounds like just my cup of tea.

  6. I need to catch up on the Amory Ames I've only read book one. And The Bookshop on the Corner has a fabulous cover!

  7. Heartless!! I absolutely love Marissa Meyer and I am so excited for that one. I read Paper and Fire and while I didn't love it as much as the first one, I still enjoyed it. Happy reading!

  8. Paper and Fire was on my list this week too!
