Top Ten Tuesday : Fall TBR List



I have so many books on my TBR list. A great deal of them were added perusing Top Ten from last week. However. I will endeavor to narrow the list down and present you with some semi-fresh choices. 

(Except for the very first one because this is probably on every single TBR list of everyone that I might possibly know. And if not - it will be when I'm done talking with them. LOL). 

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell


This is a the fan-fiction of a fictional series (totally inspired by Harry Potter so kind of like a fan fiction unto itself) a character wrote in Rainbow Rowell's previous book Fangirl. I'M SO EXCITED. I can't wait. How awesome is it that she gets to write THE FANFICTION her character wrote in her book? Seriously. I'm so eager to read it. 






A Tyranny of Petticoats (A Collection) 

I ran across this the other day while perusing and it just struck me as a future awesome read. I love historical fiction and I love historical fiction even better from the POV of a girl. Especially one(s) who have some spirit.







Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier

Dinosaurs are a favorite thing of mine. Dinosaurs are awesome. Also surprisingly matched female friendships. Also I had no idea that Mary Anning existed until I stumbled onto this book. I'm eager to learn all about her.







Winter (Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer

I've been reading my way through the Lunar Chronicles and this is the last book to be released this Fall. I'm on Cress right now so I'm trying to draw out the experience. As of yet in Cress I have not gotten a good look at life on the Moon so I'm eager to really dig into it. I can't help but wonder if the Lunar culture is as collectively and wholly evil and dominating as the Earthens believe? I'm pretty sure I have the answer already but either way - I'll find out when Winter is released!



The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling

JK Rowling...well...is a Queen. So of course this is on my list. I'm just dubbing it a top priority to read this before the end of the year..like right now. Decision made! BAM! Although I probably won't review it here because it's JK Rowling and she's just worth the read no matter what she's writing. :)






The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman

I love Practical Magic and the Green Angel echoed after me a little when I read it in High School. I believe my Grammy recommended this book a while ago. (I checked her Goodreads and she gave it five-stars. Grammy approved!). The inevitable destination of the story was what was keeping me away from it but I think I'm ready to dive in. Besides - it's Alice Hoffman.  You never know what will happen. :)




You're Never Weird On The Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day

I love Felicia Day. Since she appeared as a Potential in the last season of Buffy. She's been someone I've whole-heartedly enjoyed in the entertainment business. I fully credit this to her complete and utter commitment to being herself in the best way possible. I like when I see that. It makes me smile. I'm pretty (99.9999%) sure that I'm going to love her book too.





The Star Wars Trilogy by George Lucas and two other authors

This popped into my head while I was writing up the blurb for Felicia Day's book. Amazon keeps telling me to read this. Or is it Goodreads? I'm not sure. I KEEP SEEING THIS COVER. And, of course, I want to read the novelization of the three great films created of all times. Especially since there are more movies coming out in the nearish future. I also really want to see if they explain Luke and Leia basically almost making out in that one scene. Like do they say 'Luke THOUGHT he liked Leia kissing him but really upon further reflection and future discovery that she's his twin sister decided she wasn't his type'.


Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty

This is another one I keep seeing pop up somewhere. I've also read positive reviews on the sequel. Well, I can't read it if I don't read the first book in the first place! I fully and completely support reading children's book well into adulthood. :)






My Very Best Friend by Cathy Lamb

Cathy Lamb's voice is one of my favorites and I endeavor to read all of her new books. But, I hadn't checked back with her releases until quite recently. I'm excited to read this new one of her. If you haven't read her - I recommend starting with Julia's Chocolate. It was my first and personal favorite of her collection. (Best read with some chocolate or an adequate substitute at hand)





And this concludes another Top Ten Tuesday, ladies and gents! This is Jess from Bird, Books, and Coffee signing out and wishing you a happy, beautiful Tuesday - may your TBR List be over-flowing!

  1. I have seen Winter on so many of these TTT posts lol only reason it's not on mine is because I made myself choose books I already owned and series starters. BUT I need Winter badly, have to see how it all ends!

    My TTT is here

  2. A Tyranny of Petticoats sounds wonderful - and I've never read a short story collection! I just haven't been drawn to them in the past, but I would like to give them a go and this sounds like a great one to start with. I just added Practical Magic to my Goodreads TBR yesterday, so it's good to hear you enjoyed it :-D If I enjoy it too, I'd definitely like to read more Alice Hoffman. And yesss to children's books - Serafina and the Black Cloak sounds fab!

    Happy reading!

    1. Normally I stray away from them too (short stories). But this looked too good to pass by.Different points of history, different POVs. :) Alice Hoffman is a classic go-to. I haven't read Practical Magic in years, I'm going to have to fix that soon! Thanks for coming by! :)

  3. It's ridiculous, I know, but I've never read an Alice Hoffman! Maybe I'll pick up this new one, too.

    Here's my Fall TBR!

    1. Ooh! You have to read at least one of her books. Practical Magic, I think, is the obvious choice. But I really loved Green Angel in High School. I'm not entirely sure why, it just struck a chord with me. I think if I picked it up now I would get an entirely different take on it. (Not necessarily a bad thing!). lol. Thanks for stopping by! :)

    1. Yes, please do! :) It'd be fun to see what short story pops out most to other people. I bet I'd get a different answer every time. Thanks for dropping in! :)

  5. I'm so excited for Carry On and Winter as well!! Two of my favorite authors. A Tyranny of Petticoats looks really good, as does Felicia Day's book, which I've been meaning to buy! I hope you get to all of these!
    Here's my TTT!

    1. Yea, I'm surprised I haven't seen it on more lists. (Felicia Day's book!). Carry On - unspeakably excited about it. I borrowed my friend's special edition Fangirl a couple of weeks ago so I'd be all caught up for the big release. Thanks for coming by! :)

  7. Excellent list! It's ridiculous that I haven't read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell yet, as I have owned it for the longest time. Once I do that I will be reading Carry On as well.
    Also The Casual Vacancy is the only book by J.K. Rowling that I haven't read - probably should change that very soon!

    1. You know, I tried reading Fangirl on my kindle and it didn't work for me. I prefer it in print (happens to me sometimes, lol). Hence I had to borrow my friends copy a couple of weeks ago to amp up for Carry On's release. lol. I'm excited to see how Rowling writes for adults. I've heard its as charming as she always is. :) Ty for stopping in! :)

  8. oooh! I will have to check out A Tyranny of Petticoats! It sounds really great. I still haven't read Fangirl (shock horror I know) but I will get to it one of these days!
    Thanks for stopping by the The Local Muse
