Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten… Books on my Fall TBR

Top Ten TuesdayWelcome to Top Ten Tuesday – a weekly feature hosted by those lovely bookworms over at The Broke and the Bookish. Expect a new top ten list every week!

| Top Ten… Books on my Fall TBR |

As usual a ridiculous number of books have made their way onto my to-be-read list and this fall is no exception – so many amazing new releases too! However due to the inordinate quantity still waiting to be read I’ve decided this week’s Top Ten will focus on those ‘Oh my god! I need to read this NOW’ books which I most certainly didn’t read now, in fact, they haven’t been read at all. This autumn, fantasy will take centre stage (as it usually does) and I will endeavour to plough my way into the rather ominous looking pile that has developed.

The Traitor Queen

by Trudi Canavan

Ahh The Traitor Queen! Once I’ve devoured you I will have ticked off a monthly goal! I also won’t feel guilty for having bought you in hardback, had you signed and then proceeded to forget about you for… umm… several years now?!

The Queen of the Tearling

by Erika Johansen

A recent addition to my book mountain from August but I keep hearing good things and… damnit! I want to be in the loop!

King of Thorns

by Mark Lawrence

Another neglected series much highlighted in the Top Ten of two weeks ago. Two weeks later and I’ve still not opened you up to have a look at your good stuff. Soon!

Half The World

by Joe Abercrombie

I love Joe Abercrombie. I may have mentioned this once… or twice… or perhaps on every single list I publish! I’m thoroughly ashamed for not having finished his Shattered Sea Trilogy despite having all the books waiting patiently on my shelf.

The Farthest Shore

by Ursula K. Le Guin

The Farthest Shore is next on my list in my attempt to make my way through The Earthsea Cycle.

Alice in Zombieland

by Gena Showalter

And October wouldn’t be October if I didn’t have at least one ‘spooky’ read. This year’s choice is one I picked up at random recently – Alice in Zombieland

The Republic of Thieves

by Scott Lynch

Another hardback bought as soon as it came out, another one left until now! I’ve been looking forward to reading this for so long!


| 8. |

Tower Lord

by Anthony Ryan

Blood Song was an incredible read and left me incredibly excited for Tower Lord which I immediately bought and immediately shelved and forgot about.


| 9. |


Lord of Chaos

by Robert Jordan

I’ve had the sixth book in The Wheel of Time on my shelf for so long it now has two other rows of books in front of it. Time to dust it off.

Royal Exile

by Fiona McIntosh

Acquired rather recently, I know next to nothing about this book… except that it’s a pretty hardback and I want to read it!

  1. a big YES to everything in your list! You just made me realize I need to add more books on my TBR, like Republic of Thieves and everything by Mark Lawrence. I’ve seen Alice in Zombieland but I’m not sure if I want to read it or what’s it about, I haven’t tried any fairy tale retellings. I hope you finish all of this!

    1. Yes I’ve seen a few new ones around too! I definitely bought this on a whim. I like Alice in Wonderland… I like zombies… this should work right?

      I can’t wait to get back into The Wheel of Time. It’ll probably only take me ten years to (remember to) get through them all!


  2. I should really read the Earthsea books. I’ve had a copy for years, and I’ve never touched it! Looks like you’ll be reading a lot of good books this fall. Enjoy!


  3. I hope you enjoy your Autumn/Fall reading. I haven’t read any of these, but I have heard great things about many of them! I don’t have a hard, fast list of Autumn books to read. I do love taking part in the R.I.P event though so all my current and upcoming reads will be suitably mysterious and darker 🙂
