Top Ten Tuesday: Epic Fall TBR

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

It's fall and I love fall.  It always puts me in a particular mood to read. I love picking up fantasy, dystopian and mysteries during this time. Anything that screams leaves and pumpkins, sweaters and wood-burning fireplaces. So here's my list of books that scream candles and cinnamon sticks.

1. The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas - I read Throne of Glass early this year and then found out I probably should have started with this book. I don't think it really matters if I read this before the rest of the series, but I have heard that it gives more characterization to Celaena. So I'm going to read it before I continue on with the series.

2. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater - This book has the potential to take over my fall reads. I'm definitely going to read it, but I might also binge read the rest of the series if I'm really into it.  I have a feeling that it's going to happen.

3. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness - I know very little about this book and I've owned it for years now. I know that people can hear each other's thoughts and that alone is enough to pique my interest.

4. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo - I'm almost done with Six of Crows and I can already tell I'm going to pick this up immediately after.

5. Warcross by Marie Lu - This book just came out and I'm really excited to read this. I wasn't the biggest fan of The Young Elites trilogy, but I loved the Legend trilogy. I'm interested to see where this book falls. I have a feeling I'm going to love it though.

6. Renegades by Marissa Meyer - I'm going to be honest here, I don't know what this one is about at all. I think there are two opposing groups of people in the story, maybe. I don't know, but if Marissa Meyer wrote it, you bet your bottom dollar I'm going to read it.

7. S by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst- This book is a library book by a fictional author that two students write in and pass back and forth. You get to read the book and the students comments and the story that unfolds from both of them. I don't know, it's meta.

8. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake - This sounds like the perfect fall fantasy read. Magical sisters fighting over one thrown. I hope I enjoy it as much as I think I'm going to.

9. Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle - There is never a bad time to read some Sherlock Holmes! I'm going to aim to read five short stories and maybe one of the novels this fall.

10. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - I started this book back in March, I think, and it's still not finished. It has definitely taken a back seat to every other book I've read this year. I did promise myself I would read it this year and so I will continue my read, no excuses!

Fall also makes me think of graphic novels and coffee so here is my fall TBR of graphic novels/trade paperbacks.

1. Hawkeye Vol. 5: All-New Hawkeye by Jeff Lemire
2. Hawkeye Vol. 6: Hawkeyes by Jeff Lemire
3. Hawkeye: Kate Bishop Vol. 1: Anchor Points by Kelly Thompson
There's something about Hawkeye that just makes me want to keep reading it. I reread Matt Fraction's run of Hawkeye at the end of July and want to continue with all the crazy characters. I'm ready to see what other shenanigans Clint and Kate get themselves into in these three volumes.

4. The Fade Out Act 1 by Ed Brubaker
5. The Fade Out Act 2 by Ed Brubaker
6. The Fade Out Act 3 by Ed Brubaker
This series has been on my radar for some time now and I've always felt like I should read it in the fall, so now is the time! I really like film noir and this series looks like it's going to be really good noir.

7. Paper Girls Vol. 3 by Brian K. Vaughan - I read the first two volumes at the beginning of this year and I'm ready to find out what happens to the girls next!

8. Runaways (2017) by Rainbow Rowell - I love Runaways. I was so excited to hear it that it was returning, I don't even want to wait until a trade comes out.

9. Young Avengers by Kieron Gillen - I own this series in single issues and read them as I got them. Now that Kate Bishop has her own Hawkeye run, I want to reread it to refresh my memory a bit and also because it's awesome!

10. Fables Vol. 3: Storybook Love by Bill Willingham
11. Fables Vol. 4: March of the Wooden Soldier by Bill Willingham
It is my quest to finish this series so long as I continue to like the story. It's been a while since I've read any Fables so I may need to backtrack a little bit. Either way, I hope to read the next to volumes in this series and learn some more about these fairytale characters.



  1. Great list! Three Dark Crowns is on my TBR and I'd love to read Six of Crows this year, I've heard so many good things so far. =)

  2. I hope you enjoy all these! I really enjoyed The Raven Boys and The Assassin's Blade :)
