Top 10 Tuesday – September 22nd, 2015


Happy Tuesday, everyone! It’s time for another Top 10 Tuesday list. This is an original weekly blog meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, there is a new bookish topic for bloggers to create a list about. If you want to know more about Top 10 Tuesday, click here!

This week’s topic is the top ten books on your fall TBR. This was a difficult list to make because my TBR is so massive. It was hard to choose which ones I want to read first since I am so eager to read them all. And I think I have also managed to come to the conclusion that I have a bit of a book-buying problem…but you can never have too many books! Right?

Anyway, though it was tough to choose just ten, here is a list of the books on my TBR that I am most excited to get to this season.

  1. Vicious by V.E. Schwab


Frankly, I can’t believe that I haven’t read this novel yet. Or a Victoria Schwab novel in general, for that matter. I have been hearing so many wonderful things about her books, and I am interested to see what I think of them. Also, a comic-book style novel about super powered archenemies? Why has it taken me so long to get around to this?

  1. Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn


If you couldn’t already tell from my recent posts, I have recently become a massive Gillian Flynn fan. I read Gone Girl earlier this year and I plan on starting Dark Places this month. So of course, this is also on the top of my TBR, and I would really like to get to it before the end of the year. Even though I run the risk of going into Gillian Flynn book withdrawal!

  1. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin


I’ve recently been making my way through the television series and I am completely hooked! This is a book series that I have been meaning to start for a while, and since I am enjoying the show, I’m even more eager to jump into the novels. I have a good feeling that I am going to love these stories.

  1. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline


This is yet another book that I have had on my list for a long time and I can’t believe I haven’t gotten to it yet. I have only ever heard extremely positive things about this novel, and it sounds like the perfect story for a nerd like me! This is definitely a high priority read on my TBR.

  1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas


I have wanted to start the Throne of Glass series for a long time now, so I am determined to begin it this fall. This sounds like an incredible fantasy series and I think these stories will be right up my alley. I’d like to get caught up on it as soon as possible!

  1. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh


I’ve been really enjoying reading retellings lately, and this is one that I am looking forward to. It is based off of One Thousand and One Nights, which is story that I am not too familiar with, and the premise sounds so intriguing. This is another high priority read for me.

  1. Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes


Flowers for Algernon was typically an option on the list of books we chose from for summer reading in school, and I always meant to get to it. But for some reason, I never chose it and I finished school without having read it; on top of that, my dad has been highly recommending this to me for a while now. I recently picked up a copy and I would like to get to it in the next few months.

  1. Cress by Marissa Meyer


I began this series earlier this year and I am hoping to finish Cress up soon so I can read Winter when it is released. So of course this is on my TBR! I am absolutely loving this series, and I can’t wait to see where it goes and how it wraps up.

  1. A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle


I’ve been working my way through the Sherlock Holmes novels, but so far I’ve only read two of the short story collections. I would like to give one of the standalone novels a try, and I figured I might as well start at the beginning. I’m excited to see how I like this and how the full novels compare to the short stories.

  1. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater


This is a book that I took a bit of a risk on and purchased recently. I’ve read one of Maggie Stiefvater’s novels before and I was not a fan of it. However, I did like her writing style and I have been hearing a lot of great things about this series. This does sound like I story that I might end up really enjoying so I figured I would give it a try.

Let me know in the comments what books are at the top of your fall TBR!

    • I have a feeling I’m going to end up really liking The Raven Boys.
      I am only part way into season 2 of the show and I am already completely obsessed with Game of Thrones. I’m definitely starting the book as soon as possible! I can’t wait! 🙂


      • I hope you like the GOT books. I’ve tried watching the shows but they don’t have the same hold on me like the books so I stopped watching after a while. I’ve yet to make it past episode 3 of Season 1.

  1. Flowers for Algernon is one of my favorite books. I read the short story in school and finally got around to reading the novel much later in life. And it was fantastic. I hope you’ll love it.

    I can also say Ready Player One is fun.

    I will be intrigued to see what you think of the longer Holmes stories. I admit I prefer the short stories.

    • I’m really looking forward to finally reading it. I’m sure that I will absolutely love it! I’m also so eager to get to Ready Player One; it sounds like it’s going to be such an enjoyable read.

      I’m very interested to see what they are like. I’ve always heard a lot of people say the same thing, that the short stories are the best, and I do have a feeling I’ll probably agree.
