Top Ten Tuesday: Fall TBR


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

This week’s prompt is Books on My Fall TBR.

Hopefully making this list doesn’t automatically doom me to not reading these books as making lists so often does. It’s a really weird quirk of mine.

  1. The Sepulcher by Kate Mosse. This is the print book that I’m currently reading. It had been sitting on my shelf for quite some time and I decided to give it a go.
  2. The Heretic’s Creed by Fiona Buckley. This is my current eBook that I’m reading from Netgalley.
  3. To Capture What We Cannot Keep by Beatrice Colin. This is next up from Netgalley.
  4. ODY-C, Vol 1 – Off to Far Ithicaa by Matt Fraction and Christian Ward. This is a graphic novel that I plan on reading for Dewey’s Read-a-thon next month.
  5. Saga, Vol. 6 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples. Another graphic novel I plan on reading for Dewey’s.
  6. Rogues edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner R. Dozois. This is a collection of short stories by authors like Neil Gaiman and Gillian Flynn.
  7. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. This is an ALA challenged book that I’ve been wanting to read for a while. No time like the present.
  8. The Mathematician’s Shiva by Stuart Rojstaczer. This is another book that’s been sitting on my shelf for at least a year. Recently, it’s been catching my eye as I walk by. I think it’s calling out to me, lol. 

There are plenty more books that I’ll read between now and the winter solstice, but I’m not sure what they are at present. I have a list of “need to buy” books that I’d love to read asap, but with Christmas right around the corner, I’m not sure how many of them I’ll pick up. Actually, I have 74 unread books currently sitting on my shelves so I have plenty to choose from. Why is it that we continue to buy books to read when our physical TBR pile is so tall??? 😉

So tell me, what’s on your Fall TBR? Anything you’d recommend?

November TBR

November TBR (1)

I’ve said previously, that I hesitate to make a monthly TBR because it seems as if when I do, I read anything but those books. However, the books I’m adding for November are pretty much a sure thing. In fact, I’m somewhat cheating here, hehehe.

This weekend, I picked up the new illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I read it almost in one sitting. It’s one of my favorite books of all time. It’s beloved! The illustrated edition is gorgeous. It’s beautiful! If you don’t have it, GO BUY IT NOW!I It’s been a really long time since I’ve reread the Harry Potter series because I’ve read it so much, my first book fell apart. ::sigh:: Luckily, it wasn’t a first edition. As a result, I was barely in the front door before I sat down with my new edition and read it. Now, I’m rereading the entire series. Hence, the first six books on my October TBR are the Harry Potter books (having already read the first one).

I’m also still reading The Lies of Lock Lamora and will finish this book if it’s the last thing that I do. GRRR! I’m also rereading Nirvana by J.R. Stewart. This is an ARC and one I’ve read and reviewed already. However, the publishing company got in touch and asked me to read a revised copy of the book, which I’ve agreed to do and have already started reading. Sneak preview:  It’s much better than the first version of the ARC. In fact, I’m amazed at what the reviewing and editing stage of writing can do for a story.

Should I finish these eight books, I also bought Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff this weekend. I am dying to dive into this book. The cover is one of the most unique in my library or, in fact, that I’ve ever seen. The novel itself is somewhat unique in that it is an illuminated novel. Book Riot recently did a write up of some illuminated novels you should check out.

I think this list should be enough to keep me occupied this month. If not, I have dozens of other books in my TBR pile to choose from. What’s on your reading list for November?
