Top Ten Books On My Fall To-Be-Read list


In this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted every week by the wonderful bloggers over at the Broke and the Bookish) we’re sharing our lists of what books we’re looking forward to reading this fall (or autumn, as us Brits call it). Click on the book titles for Goodreads pages or reviews of the books.


Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield, 23rd September

The book that everyone’s talking about, from acclaimed author of the Uglies series. I am already loving all the reactions to this book in the YA community, and this hilarious marketing clip. Check out my review coming later this week!


Winterspell by Claire Legrand, 30th September

I love the sound of this dark retelling of The Nutcracker story set in nineteenth-century New York and a mysterious land called Cane. Perfect reading for a wintery evening.


The Queen of Zombie Hearts by Gena Showalter, 30th September

The final instalment in this thrilling trilogy – it’s been a long wait since Through the Zombie Glass but I’m sure it will be worth it!!


Night of a Thousand Stars by Deanna Raybourn , 1st October

I read City of Jasmine, also by this author, earlier this year and loved the mix of romance and adventure in an historical setting. Her next book promises yet more exotic adventures: Poppy Hammond jilts her aristocrat groom at the altar and heads ‘east across the seas, chasing a hunch and the whisper of clues’.


Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick, 7th October

I’m guessing this will be on a lot of people’s lists – the much anticipated book by the author of the Hush, Hush saga. It’s all about a girl who goes trekking in the Teton mountain range and gets taken hostage. To survive, she must lead her captors off the mountain – and decipher the clues to a chilling series of murders that have taken place out there. I love books set in the wilderness and this one sounds really atmospheric.


Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios, 7th October

This caught my eye because I’ve never read a book from the point of view of a jinni stuck in a bottle before. And I will NOT get that Christina Aguilera song stuck in my- oh dammit…


Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch, 14th October

Set in the ‘Kingdom of Winter’, this story is all about one girl’s quest to restore magic to her people and free them from enslavement. It sounds like ideal fireside reading with a touch of Narnia to it.


Loop by Karen Akins, 21st October

A time travel romance and mystery rolled into one.


Compulsion by Martina Boone, 28th October

A Southern Gothic tale about a girl who must try to break the curse that has tied her family for generations.


A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray, 4th November

In which a girl journeys through parallel universes on the hunt for the man who murdered her father. Sounds like gripping stuff!

Thanks for stopping by. What’s on your Top Ten list this Tuesday?
