Ten Books on My Fall TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme: top ten books on your fall TBR.
I'm not usually a big fan of TBRs. I pretty much never stick to them, so I just don't see the point. But since I started college, I've been reading a lot less than before - besides required reading, I think I've read about 100 pages in three weeks. So I think it's probably a good idea for me to prioritize what I want to read.

I also have to give a shout-out to the book club that I'll (hopefully) start participating in this fall - Austentatious! We're reading a different Jane Austen book every month until January. I didn't participate in August, because I'd already reread Pride & Prejudice recently, and I'm thinking I might have to skip September's reread of Persuasion, too. But starting next month, it's all books I haven't read yet, and I'm really going to try and do those!

Books that have been released already:

SHADOW AND BONE by Leigh Bardugo (Grisha Trilogy #1): This is getting ridiculous. I'm already the last person in the world to read this trilogy, and I told myself that I'd catch up before Crooked Kingdom's release - which, incidentally, is today. And I still haven't even started this book. This is probably the one I'm most ashamed of, but I'm going to get to it.

WHAT WE LEFT BEHIND by Robin Talley: I have no clue why I didn't get to this last fall. I read Lies We Tell Ourselves as soon as I could get my hands on it, and I loved it, and I promised myself that I'd read all future Robin Talley books as soon as I could. That didn't happen. But I'll read it soon!

A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC by V.E. Schwab (Shades of Magic #1): I've been hearing good things about this book from so many people for so long, and I've really wanted to read it. I really want to read it! And I finally got myself a copy, so now I have no reason not to.

AS I DESCENDED by Robin Talley: I am so amazingly excited about this book, and I can't believe that I have a copy right now because I've been looking forward to it for so long that it being here doesn't actually feel real. I think I'm going to put this off a tiny bit longer, since it sounds like a perfect Halloween book. 

EMPIRE OF STORMS by Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass #5): This is actually what I'm reading right now, but I'm going to count it on the TBR anyway because there are still so many pages left. I really need to get on this one - I'm not going to be able to avoid spoilers forever! 

Books that are being released today or haven't been released yet:

LIKE A RIVER GLORIOUS by Rae Carson (Gold Seer Trilogy #2): Happy book birthday to this one! I absolutely loved the first book in this series, and I'm so excited to see where this is going. It has so much potential! I really have no idea what's going to happen, but I'm excited for it anyway.

BLOOD FOR BLOOD by Ryan Graudin (Wolf by Wolf #2): I've probably said this about a million times by now, but I can't believe that I almost didn't read Wolf by Wolf. I wasn't sure whether I would like it, and it ended up being one of my favorite books of this year! It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I'm pretty sure this book is going to destroy me, but I need it.

A MILLION WORLDS WITH YOU by Claudia Gray (Firebird #3): The Firebird trilogy is one of my favorite ongoing series, and I can't believe it's coming to an end! I'm not ready to say goodbye to this world (these worlds?) yet, but that's not going to stop me reading it as soon as I possibly can.

GEMINA by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (Illuminae Files #2): Illuminae was another unexpectedly amazing book this year, so I'm really excited for the story to continue! This will also be really good when I don't have a lot of time because of the unique format. I'll be able to fly through a giant book and feel accomplished!

MARIAN by Ella Lyons: This book has my name on it. It's a retelling of Robin Hood, but with queer ladies. I really don't think I need to say anything else.

What are your most anticipated reads this fall? Do you have less time to read in the fall, like I do? How do you balance things? Tell me in the comments!


  1. Empire of Storms was on my list this week too. I hope you enjoy A Darker Shade of Magic, it's so good!

August Wrap-Up

I'm having a bunch of weird feelings about it being the last day of August right now. I mean, I love autumn, and I'm SO EXCITED that summer is coming to an end because it means cooler temperatures and flannel and pumpkin-flavored things and pretty colors, but at the same time...there's just no way that today's the last day of August. That's not a thing that's happening right now in my head. It's just not. I think I'm stuck near the end of July somewhere.

And with the end of August comes the end of summer break. Within a week, I'll be starting my second year of college! Equal parts exciting and intimidating. The week or so is definitely going to be hectic, what with moving and such, so any posts I manage to get up will be scheduled in advance.

August was a pretty great reading month for me - I was actually hoping to get a bit more in, considering it's my last month of 2017 without classes, but I think I still did rather well. And in terms of star …

Top Ten Favorite Books of 2017

So, I haven't posted since the beginning of the month, because finals totally destroyed me. But I'm here now! And for the gazillionth time in four months, I'm saying that I'm gonna get back onto a normal posting schedule. But for now, I have plenty of things to post this week since it's one of my favorite times of year - wrapping things up at the very end!

Yes, it's nearly the end of 2017. And personally, I will not be sorry about kissing this year goodbye. I've had a pretty good reading year, and not a bad personal year! But 2017 as a global phenomenon has not been great, and I don't think I'm alone in that sentiment. It's made me really want to focus on the good this year, especially in the form of books! So without further ado, here are my top ten books I read this year.

10. LADY MIDNIGHT by Cassandra Clare (The Dark Artifices #1): Based on all the other Cassandra Clare books I've read, I was in no way expecting this to make it onto my favo…

Ten Books I Want My Cousins to Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme: Ten Books You Want Your Children/Godchildren/Young Relatives/Etc. To Read.

Hi, everyone! *waves* Long time, no post. School kind of...ate me. But I'm back, at least for today. I don't know what I'm going to do about a consistent schedule, and I don't know whether I'm going to really start back now, but here I am. And what better place to start than a Top Ten Tuesday?

When I saw this week's Top Ten Tuesday prompt, my mind immediately went to my cousins, specifically the ones that are closest to my age. I have a feeling that the books I picked are more YA than a lot of other people's lists, because my cousins aren't all that little anymore! I'm the oldest of that group, and I love them dearly even though I don't get to see them a lot. There are so many books out there that I think they'd enjoy or that I think would be valuable for them to read (or both), so …
