Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week a different topic comes up and bloggers list their top ten books in that category.
I love a good list...I've always said that. That's practically my catchphrase.
Top Ten Books on my Autumn 'To Be Read' List!
Title: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making
Author: Catherynne M. Valente
I recently received a review copy of the second book in the series, so I really need to get up to date and read The Girl Who... first! Plus I adore the title and the cover. They are pleasing to me.
Title: In the Shadow of the Banyan
Author: Vaddey Ratner
The last 10 books I have read have been YA so I think I am long overdue for some adult fiction, and this looks beautiful and sad which is right up my street.
Title: Throne of Glass
Author: Sarah J. Mass
I got this on my Kindle the other day because I was reading so many rave reviews! It sounds fantastical and awesome so I will definitely be picking it up this month.
Title: The Time Keeper
Author: Mitch Albom
Hmm I am so torn over this book. On one hand, the cover is beautiful and the plot sounds really intriguing. On the other hand, I absolutely hated 'Five People You Meet in Heaven', by the same author. when I read it as a teenager. Sentimental crap...is how I remember describing it. So we'll see how this one goes!
Title: The Shadow Society
Author: Marie Rutkoski
One of the review copies I will be reading in Autumn- this looks mysterious and action packed which is nice to have after a couple of really serious reads!
Author: Ellen Hopkins
Why I Loved It: This is a novel in verse which realllllly intrigues me! I love unusual formats in books and something a bit quirky, so I'm hoping this doesn't disappoint! Priscilla from The Readables is also reading it this month, so it will be interesting to compare opinions!
Title: The Night Circus
Author: Erin Morgenstern
I have no idea how I haven't read this yet but it remains with spine unbroken on my shelf. THIS MONTH WILL BE THE MONTH I GET TO IT. I'm sure of it....
Title: The Marlowe Papers
Author: Ros Barber
I was perusing my local Waterstones the other day and I happened upon this gorgeous book that I just insta-loved. It is cloth-bound, the apple is in gold and it is just so pretty! Again, it is in verse, and it is a re-imagining of the playwright Christopher Marlowe's life. Sounds so good!
Title: Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Author: Laini Taylor
Again, I realllly want to read this, I just never seem to find time! I hope this month I can't keep my hands off it.
Title: The Casual Vacancy
Author: J.K Rowling
Of course I am going to be reading this. From cover to cover without stopping. Personally, I think it sounds brilliant and I love the cover! FINGERS CROSSED. EVERYTHING CROSSED.
I wonder how many of these I'll actually read! I have no discipline.
