Dare I make a Fall to-read list? Even though, with my book mood swings, you never really know where I’m headed off to next book-wise?
Why yes. Yes I will. Let’s hope I stick reaaaal close to what I plan to read this month, but you never know. I guarantee you, though, that I’ll at least get through one of the books on this list? XD
(To be fair, the first three of these are current reads, so I’ll most likely get them all done before mid-October!)
Ten Books on My Fall 2018 TBR
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – This book has definitely been on my radar since it came out this year, and once I started seeing some Avatar the Last Airbender-esque homages up in this book I was all “YESPLS”. I definitely am tackling this book this fall, for sure.
The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco – Weeeeeell…I really only read the prologue a while back, and I haven’t picked it up since, but the beginning kind of reminds me of Kvothe in Rothfuss’ Name of the Wind. That said, I’ve been putting this off for so long (to the point where a Netgalley ARC still remains unreviewed) that it’s about time to finish this.
The Shape of Water by Guillermo del Toro and Daniel Kraus – I’m actually in the middle of this audiobook, and liking it so far! But then again, I was one of those people who adored the movie, so sue me?
Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu – I pretty much loved Warcross, so this has been on my high priority list after falling hard for her billionaire tall dark handsome character *coughHideocough*. That said, Batman has always been an interesting character to read, though honestly, the entire DC YA series is something on my high TBR priority list.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – I’m…actually afraid to read this duology because I absolutely loved Ruin and Rising, and if I fall in love with Six of Crows, I might be bumping R&R out of my top ten favorites for the year. THIS IS AN IRRATIONAL FEAR BUT YOU UNDERSTAND, RIGHT?! Ugh. Let’s face it, though. Bardugo is my author-love at the moment and I’ll most likely read this book and its sequel if only so I can get my hands on King of Scars because because NIKOLAAAAAI.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas – There’s a lot of YA authors on this list right now, but for good reason! I’ve kind of been avoiding the big YA names because of how much they’ve made me squee in the past. Maas is a different story, though. I’m mostly avoiding CoM because ship reasons, buuuut enough is enough. I need to rip off that band-aid and GET TO IT. Also, I’m being hounded to read more Maas, albeit I’m pretty sure my friend Meg is wanting me to pick up the next ACOTAR book…
Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson – This one’s a stretch. But I am determined to at least get through ONE Sanderson book this year, because I’ve done at least one every year since I started this blog, and I’m not about to stop now. All the same…you’d think I’d go for finishing the Steelheart series… *sobs inwardly*
Vengeful by V.E. Schwab – Because it’s SCHWAB YOU GUYS. Of course I’m going to read this book as soon as I get my grubby hands on it. And that will be soooon, my lovelies.
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski – Another one on my high priority list which kept slipping out of my mind until I looked at one of my unread piles. I have a lot of those unread piles, so many books slip my priority list…but I really do want to read this soon.
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente – I have been loving the Valente books I’ve picked up so far, and this one is even more up my alley than the other two. I’ve been holding the copy for years now, but I just haven’t actually gotten around to reading it. This one’s another “I MUST READ REAL SOON” so why not this fall?
Phew. This looks like a daunting task. But you know what, this kind of does look like the set of books I plan to read in the near future.
