Hey everyone, it’s Allison!
I should probably start this out but admitting that I completely failed on completing my summer TBR reading list. Out of the ten books I planned on reading, I only actually read two of them. That being said, I did do some reading this summer, only it wasn’t the books I had originally planned! Ah well. I guess this time around I’ll just have to prioritize better. Here’s what I have planned for my Fall TBR list:
1. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
Why?: A strong female main character that gets into plenty of trouble and mischief? Sounds absolutely delectable! I’ve wanted to read all about Frankie since I went to the E. Lockhart signing with April back in February 2011.
2. The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison
Why?: Look at the cover! Plus, it’s a YA book that has a main character with OCD. The psychological background in me is tingling with excitement.
3. Never Sit Down in a Hoopskirt and Other Things I Learned in Southern Belle Hell by Crickett Rumley
Why?: This book sounds absolutely hilarious! It was recommended to me by April a while back and it would probably be a good idea to actually read it before she disowns me as a co-blogger … or a friend.
4. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
Why?: Because if April doesn’t disown me for not having read Never Sit Down in a Hoopskirt and Other Things I Learned in Southern Belle Hell, she surely will disown me for not having read The Princess Bride yet. Especially since I’m pretty sure that the copy that I have was the one that she let me borrow YEARS ago. Opps! Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to read it this fall (and then we will watch the movie together … again).
5. Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen
Why?: I’ve wanted to read Water For Elephants for such a long time, especially since I know that it gives a nod to my hometown. I’m super excited to read all about the star-crossed lovers and the circus atmosphere.
6. Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber
Why?: I’m in love with this cover — it’s so pretty! Also, I’m really intrigued by the prospect of a YA novel that has drawn from classic Gothic novels and that is told from a Victorian lens.
7. The Aviary by Kathleen O’Dell
Why:? Because according to April, The Aviary is ‘TOTALLY BITCHIN’, and when has she ever led me in the wrong direction?
8. Emma by Jane Austen
Why?: I really do need to read more classics thus I figured that if I put one on my Fall TBR, I would be more likely to read it. Especially if I prioritize and focus on my TBR list this time around!
9. Beautiful Lies by Jessica Warman
Why?: This book sounds like mystery roller coaster. I can’t wait to get strapped into my seat and go on the ride! Also, the cover is just gasp worthy as well. I love it!
10. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Why?: If anyone has talked me about a book that I’ve been looking forward to, they know that this one is it. I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get a copy of it at BEA but, I survived. Of course once I found a copy of it in a bookstore right after it was released, I snatched it right up. Yes, it’s true…I’m super pumped to read Throne of Glass.
So…there’s my list! Are any of these books on your TBR? Have you read any of them? Do you plan on reading any of them? Let me know in the comments and be sure to drop me a link to your Top 10 list!
