First off, I want to tell you all something totally AWESOME! You know the summer TBR pile Top 10 Tuesday post? Yo, I finished all of the books I listed. FRICK yes. I think I am also going to attempt to make that goal again and read all of the books listed. I debated and struggled over what to put on today’s TBR pile. I mean, I honestly could have made this list all sequels or all debuts or all September books. Instead, I decided to mix it up. Are any of these books on your TBR? Let me know in the comments!
Top 10 Books On My Fall 2012 TBR Pile:
1. Ten by Gretchen McNeil
Why?: I love the original version of this story, And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. I am really looking forward to the spin McNeil takes on it. Also? Is it just me or is fall not the perfect time for a pumpkin spice and a scary book?
2. Hidden by Sophie Jordan
Why? Oh my godddddd you guys! This is the year two of my favorite trilogies end. The Paranormalcy trilogy ended and so now I’ve just got Hidden left and the Firelight trilogy will end. YOU GUYS! I need to know who she chooses and what the deal with the dragons and the dragon hunters is. I AM SO PUMPED.
3. The Twelve by Justin Cronin
Why? Remember that time I spent 2ish days ripping through The Passage? Holy hell you guys I need to know what happens. I AM DESPERATE FOR THE KNOWING. Also? The Passage was nightmare inducing which makes me hope the The Twelve is as well. PLUS PLUS PLUS there is a character in this sequel named APRIL so I am like READ ALL THE PAGES NOW!
4. Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier
Why? Juliet Marillier. The end. No, but in all seriousness, I have been enamoured with Marillier’s writing since 11th grade when I stumbled upon Daughter Of The Forest in the school library. I tore through her trilogy and then her other books in like a week. So, to say I am excited about reading her latest book is kind of a huge understatement.
5. Summer And Bird by Katherine Catmull
Why? Summer And Bird is about sisters in search of their parents. I love that sort of theme. Also? I am in love with the book cover.
6. Jepp, Who Defied The Stars by Katherine Marsh
Why? That cover, sigh. I need to buy the finished copy for my shelves. But I digress. I put Jepp, Who Defied The Stars on my list because it’s all about destiny and fate and taking matters into your own hands and I just love reading about acts of courage against a historical back drop. Plus, the title is one of my favorites. Is that weird to love a book solely based upon the title? Or to deeply desire to read it because you like the title?
7. Skylark by Meagan Spooner
Why? I love book set in domes, and Skylark sounds fricken insane in the best possible way. YO! They harvest children! CHILDREN! For magical energy! FRICK YES. I am going to read the hell out of Skylark.
8. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Why? It’s first, I love the cover. Despite being terrified of birds, I really think I am going to love The Raven Boys. It’s all about death and love and private schools. It sounds a little gothic, but I can see myself reading this in front of the window while it rains or while the leaves fall.
9. Venom by Fiona Paul
Why? Sexytimes in Venice. Actually, I don’t know if there are sexytimes but that is what the cover leads me to believe, so one can only hope.
10. Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill
Why? Both Mitali and Tara at Hobbitsies LOVE this book. Like they talked about it so much during our hanging out at Bryant Park, so of course I plan to read this debut. Apparently, it’s a little bit like Anna And The French Kiss but set in London.
Are any of these books on your TBR? Have you read any of them? Let me know in the comments and be sure to drop me a link to your Top 10 list!
