Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!
This week’s theme is all about the books on our autumn TBR! There are some autumn releases I’m excited to pick up, but mostly my TBR is made up of fantasy and/or historical reads that feel like the perfect books to reach for as the nights draw in and spooky season approaches…
Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune: Klune’s new novel sounds so lovely and melancholic. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to read it around its release, but Pan Macmillan are publishing Klune’s work in the UK and good old Waterstones are selling a very pretty exclusive edition that I’ve pre-ordered!
A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow: Harrow is one of my favourite authors, so of course her new novella is on my TBR!
Legendborn by Tracy Deonn: I keep hearing such good things about this novel and then I keep not reading it, so if I officially add it to my seasonal TBR and hold myself accountable I’m hopeful I’ll actually pick it up. It sounds so fun!
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan: The Wheel of Time is one of those classic fantasy series I’ve never been all that interested in picking up – generally, I’m way more into what modern fantasy writers are putting out there – but I finally watched the trailer for the new Amazon series and I’m intrigued! I’ve borrowed this chonk from the library.
Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron: This YA fantasy novel about witchdoctors sounds like the perfect read as Halloween approaches, so it’s about time I crossed it off my TBR.
Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson: Margaret Rogerson’s new novel sounds so up my street – I love stories about convents, nuns and holy relics – and it sounds like the perfect read for the spooky season.
Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers: Speaking of convents and nuns, Dark Triumph was my favourite book in the His Fair Assassin trilogy, so I was so excited to find out that Sybella would be making an appearance in a companion duology.
The Woman They Could Not Silence: One Woman, Her Incredible Fight for Freedom, and the Men Who Tried to Make Her Disappear by Kate Moore: I came across this book when I was on holiday in North Wales – I found my copy in the lovely Browsers Bookshop in Porthmadog – and it sounds fascinating. I keep meaning to read more non-fiction and this woman, who was sent to an insane asylum by her husband for daring to have opinions, is a woman I want to learn more about.
The King of Crows by Libba Bray: I love The Diviners series and I’ve been putting off reading this finale, so it’s time I got to it.
The Factory Witches of Lowell by C. S. Malerich: I’ve had this novella since its release and still haven’t read it even though it sounds like something I’ll really enjoy.
