Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was books on my fall tbr list.
Let’s just get this out of the way—I am probably not going to read all of these books. According to GoodReads, I only read an average of 1.2 books per month… but, hey! four of those 11 books were books two through five of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, which boosts my average pages per month to 606. So maybe I’ll read more than, like, three books from now until the end of December.
- Captain America: Winter Soldier vol. 1 & 2 by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting → I have been so totally infatuated with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and MCU and Sebastian Stan’s portrayal of the Winter Soldier since I saw the film in theaters that I just need to have some feels with the source material and then watch the movie in the dark with some tissues. Okay? Okay.
- The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling → Because I haven’t yet? And it’s not Rowling’s most recent book anymore?? And I want to know what all the fuss was about???
- Is Everyone Hanging Out WIthout Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling → A huge release in 2011 (can you tell that I am way behind the times on reading new releases???) but it’s been on my tbr list since it was published and it’s just, like, time, okay?
- Just One Day by Gayle Forman → This series was honestly not on my radar until I became a (kind of) official book blogger, but I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews AND three novels in the series are published, so I can binge read. (Yes!)
- Night Film by Marisha Pessl → The plot sounds AMAZING and I absolutely adored Pessl’s previous novel, Special Topics in Calamity Physics, so it’s sort of a given that I at least check out Night Film (if not fangirl over it as well).
- The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure → “An architect is hired to build hideaways for Jews during World War II.” I mean, COME ON. This novel sounds awesome and intense.
- Shadow of Night and The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness → AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! CAN. NOT. WAIT. TO. FINISH. THIS. SERIES.
- Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi → Mafi’s Shatter Me series is another trio that I’ve only heard about from other book bloggers, but everyone who’s read it has had über fangirl reactions—and, again, five novels are already published so binge reading, here I come!
- A Spy Among Friends: Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal by Ben Macintyre → My one new release that also happens to be non-fiction—huzzah! I’m not a huge lover of non-fiction, but this book’s premise sounded too good to pass up.
