Books on My Fall TBR

Hi everyone, welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday post, a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is “Books on your fall TBR.” We don’t have fall season where I live, but I always enjoy making this TBR post so I’d do it anyway. 🙂
There are so many books I promised myself to read, but haven’t had time to do it. Here are books I plan to read.

Not Your Sidekick (CB Lee)

I am actually reading this book right now, and it’s so good you guys! I love Jess and her friends, and I could relate to her in so many different things.

Why I want to read it
: it’s own voice, there’s F/F relationship, and the protagonist is a nerd, and it was recommended by CW from Read, Think, Ponder

UnDivided (Neal Shusterman)

One of these days I would actually read this book and stop putting it in all of my TBR post. It’s just so hard to let go since it’s the last book in the dystology.

Why I want to read it
: I love the series, especially the first book, but I’m also hearing good things about this last book. If you haven’t picked up UnWind, the first book in the dystology, you totally should. It’s a dystopian book like no other, and it was one of those rare books with a concept that blew my mind.

Labyrinth Lost (Zoraida Cordova)

This books has gained quite popularity in twitter and book blogs lately and the premise sounds wonderful. Will definitely be checking it out.
Why I want to read it: Latin America #ownvoices infused with fantasy and heavily influenced by mythology.

Timekeeper (Tara Sim)

Ooohh an M/M Victorian romance/mystery. Sign me up!
Why I want to read it: all of the above plus it’s #FBCYA book of the month. And have I mentioned I’ll be joining the blog tour? Super excited!

Faithful Place (Tana French)

I am slowly but surely devouring all of Tana French works. I am not one to usually care for beautiful prose, but I cannot help but notice how gorgeous her proses are. To add to that, French’s books are usually more psychological mystery rather than straight up whodunnit detective story.
Why I want to read it: At this point, I will read anything written by Tana French.

The Color Purple (Alice Walker)

This book tells the story of women of color oppression in southern USA during 1930’s. It was the winner of 1983 Pulitzer prize, and frequently banned for its content, including portrayal of racism, slavery, and violence.
Why I want to read it: Upon reflection that my reading is not that diverse, I realize that I have to diversify my reading and read more own voices books. The reviews of this book mentioned that it’s an accurate portrayal of what happened so I thought I’d start with this before venturing to lesser known books.

The Weeping Books of Blinney Lane (Drea Damara)

I was approached by the lovely author to review her book and that was like 2 or 3 months ago (oops). I really need to catch up on my review copies.
Why I want to read it: fantasy, magic, and time travel! Right up my alley.

A Monster Calls (Patrick Ness)

I believe I promised to read this book last fall and that didn’t happen. I really do want to read it before I watch the movie so this Windie reading Ness thing has to happen soon.
Why I want to read it: because I haven’t appropriately cry from reading a book for quite some time now and I believe this one will turn me into a sobbing mess at public transport (as one should).

How to Keep A Boy from Kissing You (Tara Egglington)

I requested this book a couple of months ago on netgalley, but haven’t found time to read it. Like I mentioned before, I need to catch up on my review so I plan to get to it before this year ends.
Why I want to read it: From the synopsis, it seems to be a light read, which is exactly what I need between working and reading journal articles.

The Young Elites (Marie Lu)

I picked it up when it was on sale, but I’ve been hearing great things about this series. Fingers crossed!
Why I want to read it: I am very curious about the protagonist.

That’s all from me. Let me know if you have read or plan to read these books too!

  1. Have you started Timekeeper yet? I’m liking it so far!

    And A Monster Calls omg PLEASE read it. I dunno if I’m gonna watch the movie because it’s so sad and I don’t wanna… er, be sad, but it’s such a good book. <3

  2. So many books I’ve never heard of. I’m not sure about starting the Young Elites, I tried reading the Legend series by it didn’t really clicked for me. Might pick it up and try Marie Lu again. The Color Purple sounds like an amazing book. I’ve have to look up on that one.

    1. Interesting. I did try to read The Young Elites when I just bought it, but I couldn’t get into it. However, I wasn’t really in the mood to force myself to continue so I stopped. I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt until I try reading it the second time.
      Yes, it does seem amazing, doesn’t it?

  3. Loved UnDivided! I think it might have been my favorite in the series, but I’m not sure since I loved the first book so much. I liked A Monster Calls too, though it wasn’t what I expected. I hadn’t read the reviews before starting so I thought it was supposed to be all about a monster and was confused for a little while, but caught on quickly enough. A lot of the books you mentioned here I haven’t read sound interesting. I will have to look into them.

    1. Oh yess, I am very excited about UnDivided because I heard it was almost as good or even better than Unwind, and I loved Unwind so much.
      You’re not the only one 😛 I also thought A Monster Calls was about a monster. And I thought The Serpent King was a fantasy book about snakes. It’s good to be surprise once in a while though.
      Many of the books in my list are based on other bloggers/reviewers’ recommendation because they are not my usual reads. I hope you could find a couple of books that you enjoy. 🙂
