#TopTenTuesdays: Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR List

Hello, everyone! I’m finally taking part in a Top Ten Tuesday, yay! I always wanted to do one of these since the subjects are always interesting! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this is the theme of this week! Before I get right into it, I have to tell you that I’m a mood reader, so I rarely stick to the plans I made about reading books. Therefore, this is more of a ‘wish TBR list’, but maybe I will surprise myself and stick to a TBR list once in my life. #lowchances

The first two books I want to talk about are eARCs, that I’ve received from netgalley, so these two are a must on my fall tbr list.


1. The Tiger’s Daughter by K. Arsenault Rivera

This one seems very interesting and promising, it’s a fantasy and it is tagged as LGBT, which I love because I don’t remember reading many fantasy stories including LGBT characters or having central LGBT relationships. There are probably a lot of them, but I don’t recall reading any. So, that’s why I am beyond excited about this one! I can’t wait to get right into it.

2. The Ghostwriter by Alessandra Torre

The summary of this one sounds very thrilling, a famous romance writer has to write her last book, knowing that it’s her last one, and she’s keeping a secret. That she will most probably reveal in her last book. Count me in! I want to know what that secret is and I’m happy to read about a writer. I have never read anything from this author before, but she’s very popular in the romance genre. And I’m always interested in discovering different authors from different genres.


3. Ripped Pages by M.Hollis

This is a F/F retelling of Rapunzel and it’s also a novelette (I’m mentioning this because I’m a bit in reading slump and reading novelettes always help getting over this serious condition). Also, how cool is it that her father actually locks her in a tower and not her mother? You know because I’m very tired of girl-hate. Also…

“She spends years on her own, talking to the birds on her windowsill, and reading books with adventures she will never experience.”

I love how relatable this part of the summary is. Color me very interested.


4. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

This has been on my radar since it came out, for some reason, I haven’t found the time to read it yet. I feel like it’s a really serious matter, an important subject and that I need to be in the right mood to get the full experience from this book. I don’t know if it makes a lot of sense, but yes.

If you don’t know yet, I really doubt it, The Hate U Give is highly inspired from the Black Lives Matter Movement and deals a lot with racism. That’s all I know from this book because I wanted to get into it without knowing many details.

5. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

This is a summer favourite for many, many people and I’m hyped about it because I’ve heard it includes trips, adventures, a gay relationship, family time, cool female character. You know, just things that make you appreciate books in general.


6. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff

I think I will try to read this along with some other book because the format is very unique and I usually fly through this kind of books. I tried reading it on my kindle a while ago, but I couldn’t, because it was hard to read it there. The writing was so small and unreadable, so yes, I had to give it up! But I’m going to read it now in hardcover.


7. Release by Patrick Ness

I’ve only read A Monster Calls from Patrick Ness and I adored that book, I feel like it’s time to read another book from him. And this one has been calling for me, for some time.

8. Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios

This book is about an abusive, toxic relationship, and the relationship isn’t romanticized. I’m calling everyone! The toxic relationship isn’t portrayed as romantic, actually it’s called out. And this cover speaks to me a lot, it’s very metaphorical and I adore it.

9.  On the Fence by Kasie West

I’ve avoided this book for a while now because I skimmed through it, at some point, and I thought it had a very bad case of ‘I’m-not-like-the-other-girls/ I’m special’ and I disliked the little parts I’ve read. But now I’ve read a review about how the character actually changes and develops and understands her mistakes. And I’m curious, I mean, I usually love Kasie West’s books. So, I’m going to give it a try.


10. In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan

I have never read a book about mermaids, this sounds incredibly interesting and I’ve seen raving reviews on goodreads about it. I want to read it as soon as possible.


    What books are you excited to read this fall? Are any of the books I’ve mentioned on your TBR as well?

    Awesome post! We are totally mood readers too, so making our Top Ten Tuesday list for our Fall TBR was really hard and we probably won’t stick to it too haha! But definitely pick up The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue! It is AMAZING 🙂

      Thank you very much! It’s stressful to put up a tbr pile and know that you’ll end up picking an entirely different book at some point because you’re in the mood for it. I can’t wait to get to that book, it seems like a lot of fun!

    Great TBR, I hope you’ll be able to read all of these books! 🙂 I can’t wait for you to read The Hate U Give, it was such a powerful book, I loved it so much. Illuminae was such a…Weird book ahah, the format is quite unique but I was surprised at how much I ended up loving it all. I hope you’ll end up enjoying it as well! Happy reading 🙂

    Great list. I’ve only read one from here which is the hate u give and it was amazing. Easily one of the best and most important books I’ve ever read. I really want to read the gentlemans guide and illuminae though, I’ve heard nothing but good things about those two!
