Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Fall 2019 TBR

It’s officially autumn!

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is about the books we plan to read this autumn. I don’t always plan ahead of time what I’m going to be reading as I usually just grab a book from my shelves if it strikes my fancy that day. However, I am also a serious library junkie who is forever on waiting lists for books and I receive a lot of ARC’s so that does shape some of what I’ll be reading any given month.

I’m also going on vacation in a little less than two weeks (WOOHOO!) and like the true book nerd I am, I recently spent several giddy minutes perusing my shelves deciding which books would be coming with us. I haven’t even begun packing my clothes, but my books are definitely ready to go!


With Season 4 of the *just as good* tv show coming out in just a few months, I need to get caught up on the books. The books and the show are AMAZING.


I’ve had this book for years and keep meaning to read it, but never get more than a few pages in. I’m going to Tunisia in a couple weeks and will be getting my archaeology on at the ruins of Carthage, so I’m going to be reading this ASAP.


I’ve been looking forward to this book all year. It comes out in October and I can’t wait!


Jonathan Van Ness is life. He is a national treasure who must be venerated for all of time. I’m on a waiting list at my library for the audiobook that he’s narrated himself and it’ll probably be the best thing ever.


I was sent this by Penguin after winning a competition. I’m a little mermaid obsessed (okay, a lot mermaid obsessed), so I’m really looking forward to this despite the mixed reviews I’ve seen. I’m taking it with me to Tunisia for some poolside reading.


This is also coming to Tunisia! I read the other two during vacations in Cyprus and Crete so it seems only fitting to be reading this one on 2019’s trip.


Every year I set mini-challenges for myself within my normal Goodreads Challenge. Last year it was 20th century American classics, this year it’s pillars of sci-fi I haven’t read yet. I’ve made decent progress this year, reading titles like A Canticle for Leibowitz, To Your Scattered Bodies Go, and Red Mars. Hyperion is a book I’ve been meaning to read for ages so it’s my next pick on my mini-challenge TBR and is also coming on vacation with me.


I adored Daisy Jones and the Six when I was sent it as an ARC last year. I can’t wait for the Amazon series! Everyone raves about this book so I finally requested it from my library. I’m next in line so I should be able to start reading it soon. 

An ARC from Angry Robot, one of my favorite publishers at the minute. Watch this space for a review! From the publisher:

“Far from Earth, the AI-guided vessel Alchemon discovers a bizarre creature whose malignant powers are amplified by the presence of Lea Marsa de Host, a gifted but troubled Psionic. Now Captain Ericho Solorzano and the survivors must fight for their lives against a shrewd enemy that not only can attack them physically, emotionally and intellectually, but which seeks control of their sentient ship as a prelude to a murderous assault on the human species”


Another ARC I’ll be reading and reviewing soon on my blog. It sounds a bit like a Margaret Atwood book I absolutely devoured, Alias Grace. From the publisher:

“1855, New Hampshire. Lucy Blunt is set to hang for a double murder. Murderess or victim? Only Lucy knows the truth. Now, with her execution looming closer, Lucy’s allies fight to have her sentence overturned as the tale she’s spinning nears its conclusion. But how much of her story can we trust? After all, Lucy’s been known to bend the truth…”

Have you read any of these? Which books are on your Fall TBR? Let me know in the comments!
