Hey guys! So who knows if I’ll actually get around to reading any of these this fall (I’m still absolutely reading, don’t get me wrong), since my writing has kicked up big time. I’m working on another draft while I let the first one sit for a while…and then make final edits on that to (hopefully!) publish.
Anyway, these are the books I’m definitely hoping to get around to soon.
Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR
1. Maybe This Time by Katie West
It’s been a while since I’ve read a West book and I think it’s about time again. I got off the contemporary romance train for a while and I’m ready to board again.
2. Lovestruck by Kate Watson
I saw this at the library and thought it looked cute. I love Greek mythology, so this story of Cupid and Psyche’s daughter (who, like her father, manages to flub up shooting someone with a love arrow) promises a cute rom-com.
3. His Hideous Heart by Dahlia Adler (anthology)
On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, we have this anthology of YA authors doing their take on Edgar Allan Poe short stories. I don’t even care what it looks like–if it’s Poe and it’s creepy, I’m in.
4. Truly Madly Royally by Debbie Rigaud
Yes, I’m 28 and yes, I’m going to read this story of a teenage girl who falls in love with a prince. I am from the Disney generation and any haters can keep on hating.
5. Ever the Brave by Erin Summerill
This is the 2nd book in this series and I really need to get with the program to keep this series moving along before I forget too much. So…soon.
6. Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly
I love Donnelly’s writing style and, while Cinderella is actually one of my least favorite fairy tales (I hate the emotional abuse Cinderella is put through and physically cannot sit through it), I certainly hope this is going to be worth it.
7. The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen
It’s been a really long time since I’ve read a Dessen novel. I don’t even think I read her previous book, actually. But I need to get back on board and this seems like as good a one as any.
8. The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones
I’m obsessed with Lloyd-Jones’s The Hearts We Sold and I am hoping this is a wonderful blend of the supernatural and the normal. I couldn’t put the previous book down at all and I’m hoping this is the same way.
9. Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills
The title of this alone gets my attention, as it’s the title of a Miranda Lambert song I grew up listening to. But the idea behind it too, of someone escaping their hometown and making it big then to refuse to come back home for some reason, appeals to me.
10. White Rose by Kip Wilson
This one is going to be hard to read, I just know it. Set during World War II, it’s about a group of Nazi resisters. It’s real, it’s gonna hurt, and I still want to read it.
