#TopTenTuesdays: Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is the Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR List. Wow. There are seriously so many books I want to read this fall, both new and old. These might bounce around a little in time, so apologies in advance!

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

As I mentioned yesterday in my new release post, I’ve started this book and am really enjoying it. However, I’ve been so short on time since the whole work / grad school / life thing, that I have NOT devoured this at even close to how fast I normally read an SJM book. And I am NOT a big Chaol fan, but this book is just so good. Well researched. Heartbreaking. And Yrene is the best character to come back from the novellas EVER. I didn’t even like the novella she was in that much… clearly, I need to go back and re-read the Assassin and the Healer.

So this is the top of the TBR as it is hanging out on my nightstand!

Invictus by Ryan Graudin

This comes out next week! EEEEK! I’m actually reading the ARC, and am loving every minute. Since its an ebook, I can read it on lunch breaks and such, or later at night when my book light starts to annoy my eyes. You guys, this book is so fun! It’s nothing like Wolf by Wolf; it’s more of a fun time-traveling, coming-of-age romp with heists.

I hope the rest of it is as good. I’ll have a review up likely this weekend just in time for its release.

Warcross by Marie Lu

I’ve been stalking this book all year, and now I’m heartbroken to have it sitting on my TBR pile with no read date in sight. GAH. But I will eventually get to read it. And the cover… I hate to be that person, but I have to say that the cover is so gorgeous. It looks superb on the shelf.

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

If there is one thing that is cringeworthy on my list, it’s the fact that Strange the Dreamer is also still sitting on my shelf. I feel like I can be forgiven for not reading Warcross yet… it’s only been out for 7 days. But Strange the Dreamer? Months. MONTHS. And it has received wonderful reviews! What is wrong with me? I think I must need some cooler temps to get snuggled in for the longer reads, clearly the heat has warped my mind.

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

I honestly wanted to read this as soon as it released at the end of August, however, I had just seen the movie. And I heard that they are very different, which I am in favor of (though I LOVED the movie.) That being said, I didn’t want them to be compared too closely in my mind, so I decided to hold off. It’s on my shelf, waiting for the right moment.

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

Because if it wasn’t obvious enough, the Grishaverse + Me = Happiness. I know there are only short stories, but I. Must. Read. All. of. Them.

Is anyone else secretly hoping for a Kaz and Inej narrative? I need so much more of all of the Dregs. And the Darkling. More in general of all of the Grishaverse.

Artemis by Andy Weir

This is another ARC on my shelf, but I can’t talk about it yet because of the terms the publisher sent… so… if you liked The Martian, and are looking forward to another space adventure from Andy Weir, just know that Artemis is on the way. It’s not like The Martian (no Mars, no Mark Watney), but I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

Definitely on my fall TBR.

A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

Someone gave this to me last year, raving about how much they loved it. The second book in this series came out today. Kinda gotta get on this one soon.


A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

This series started in 2015, and I missed the whole thing. A special edition of the first book is coming out at the end of October, so I’ve decided I have to find out the whole Red London / Black London / whatever London thing and understand what everyone has been talking about. I MUST TRY IT!

A Court of Thorns & Roses (The Whole Series – All Over Again) by Sarah J. Maas

Once November rolls around, I am 100% committed to doing a re-read of this series from start to finish. I’ve only read ACOWAR the one time this spring. And I appreciate ACOTAR more now that I know how ACOWAR ends. And ACOMAF… well, obviously it’s the best book in the series and I mostly just need an excuse to be drawn into its world again. So that’s three more books on the list, but I will count it as one because I’ll finish it in a week.

What would you add? I could probably like 100 more, but these are my must read TBR currently!

  1. I am also currently reading Tower of Dawn and I love Yrene’s character. Not gonna lie I was skeptical going in, because Chaol ain’t my favourite character in the world right now.
    Overall solid TBR picks, I hope you enjoy them!

  2. I giggled through some of these because I’ve shared some of the same thoughts lol. I feel like I’m holding Strange the Dreamer hostage, Laini is one of my top 5 fave authors in YA but the wait in between her books can be a bit much for me & since I have terrible memory I am holding off on it (so harrrrd *sobs*). I’m also in need of Language of Thorns thankfully we don’t have too much of a wait left *whoop whoop* I haven’t chosen my next read but it may very well be Invictus cuz you just reminded me that it’s out next week lol. Awesome list, happy cozy reading 🙂

    1. Haha, I totally get that about Laini’s books! The wait til the next one will be rough, but I so need to read it 😂

      Hope you enjoy Language of Thorns ❤️. I think it’s going to be amazing, Leigh is the best!

  3. Really really looking forward to Artemis- got that on my ARC shelf too- couldn’t be more excited to read it (haven’t had the chance yet). hehehe I’m the same about Strange the Dreamer- I also love Laini Taylor so am really ashamed I’ve not got to it yet!! Also FINALLY someone who is not a Chaol fan- I was on the fence about reading that, but thanks to all the awesome reviews, I feel like I have to read it now 😉 I really need to read a shadow bright and burning!! And ahhh really hope you like Darker shade of magic- it’s the best!!

    1. I’m still not done with Tower of Dawn, had to finish up Invictus! But I’m back on ToD again. I definitely think it’s worth the read, even for those of us who are not Chaol fans 😂.

      I can’t wait to read ADSOM! And Strange the Dreamer. And all of them. It looks like it will finally be fall like next week with cooler days. Fingers crossed!
