Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Okay, so there are a lot of books on my October-December reading list already, so I'm picking out the ten that I am most convinced I will like. Then, later, I can look back and see if I have a good sense for my own taste or not. Wish me luck!

1. The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two (Fairyland #3) - Catherynne M. Valente
Okay, so I actually still have to read the sequel, but I loved The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland, and I'm pretty damn confident that I will love both of these. The third book comes out on October 8th.

2. Reality Boy - A. S. King
Even though Lili (Lili's Reflections), who sent this to me, didn't like what she read, and I've seen some unfavorable reviews, I'm still really hopeful that I will love Reality Boy. Ask the Passengers, The Dust of 100 Dogs and Everybody Sees the Ants all impressed me, so I'm willing to bet that King will live up to that.

3. Crash Into You (Pushing the Limits #3) - Katie McGarry
Based on early reviews, Katie McGarry will not let me down with this installment either. Loved both Pushing the Limits and Dare You To, and I'm excited to see if McGarry can make me love Isaiah.

4. Parasite (Parasitology #1) - Mira Grant
MIRA GRANT. That is all. Okay, maybe not. From what I've heard, I won't love this as much as Newsflesh (Feed/Deadline/Blackout), but what the heck can I possibly love that much. I fully anticipate that this will still be brilliant.

5. Racing Savannah (Hundred Oaks #4) - Miranda Kenneally
Miranda Kenneally has proven herself with Catching Jordan, Stealing Parker, and my personal favorite Things I Can't Forget. This one has HORSES. How can I not love this?

Already Published:

1. Nantucket Blue (Nantucket #1) - Leila Howland
To be honest, when this cover was revealed, I had no interest in this book, because it looks like it would some poor little rich kids at their family's beach house or something. However, all the good reviews have made me crave this and I will be reading it soon for Sadie Hawkins Sunday

2. Harry Potter - J.K. Rowling
Over the holidays, I'll be rereading the whole series and I am SO EXCITED. Basically, I do not remember much that happens in the last three books and this must be rectified.
3. Belle Epoque - Elizabeth Ross
The reviews for this one have been great, and it's a historical! There's too much contemporary on this list, so I need some more balance. :-p

4. Burning - Elana K. Arnold
Jenni (Alluring Reads) recommended this one highly to me, and we tend to agree on contemporaries. Even Renae (Respiring Thoughts) loved this one. Ashleigh Page (Birth of a New Witch) wasn't as sold, but I'm still pretty convinced this will work for me, even though I wasn't initially attracted to this blurb or cover at all.

5. What Goes Around - Courtney Summers
Oh hey, Courtney Summers books. This omnibus includes Cracked Up to Be and Some Girls Are, the two Summers novels I've yet to read. This Is Not a Test blew me away and I enjoyed Fall for Anything, so I expect these two to be epic as well.

Are any of these on your fall TBR? Have you already read any of them? What did you think?

I seriously can't wait for Crash Into You. I need to just go buy all the books and reread them to pass the time, haha. And pre-order this one of course!

I really hope to reread the Harry Potter series too. I was given $ for the new scholastic PB set, but now I'm like $60 on books I already own, but diff covers, or $60 towards books I haven't read, haha. BOOKWORM DILEMMA!

This is Not a Test is actually on my list. It will be my first Summer's book, although i do own Some Girls Are as well.

Good luck on your fall TBR Christina!

My TTT list.

I LOVED Nantucket Blue and Belle Epoque (as such I hope you do too!!). I'm really excited for Reality Boy and Crash Into You as well. And, well, I haven't read a Miranda Kenneally book yet but I really want to binge read all of them because they sound perfect and cute and totally binge-able.

Oooo rereading HP sounds awesome. I've only read them once and would love to go back and revisit them. Maybe with the fancy new covers? :)

I haven't heard of Burning, but with those recs, it's definitely worth checking out!

MIRA GRAAAAAAANT!! I am not expecting to love Parasite as much as Newsflesh (let’s be serious, how could anything ever be that good again?) but I am still SO FREAKING EXCITED.

You’re rereading HP? That sounds like so much fun! I used to do that every time a new one came out (I’ve read the first book A LOT) but I haven’t read them in a while, perhaps it’s time…

Racing Savannah looks so cute! Can't wait!

Parasite... It has been on my currently-reading shelf since the beginning of July. I'm still in the minority with that, but I'm not really excited to pick it back up. Burning, on the other hand, has me intrigued. I have Some Girls Are and Fall for Anything, both still unread, but I'm hoping to get to them soon. I hope the HP reread doesn't break your feels.

So excited for The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland! Those books are freaking amazing and I love Valente. I should really check out her adult stuff... read any of those? Eeeeee you're doing the HP re-read too? I am so freaking excited for this. It's been a long time coming that's for sure.

I'm so excited for Crash Into You, too. I just love Katie McGarry!

I've been wanting to re-read HP for awhile now, too. It's been about 3.5 years since I last read them.

Happy Autumn Reading :)
