It’s now officially my favorite time of the year! I love when the leaves begin to change, the air begins to feel crisp and clean, and football season is in full swing! I’m going to brag for a moment and point out that my alma mater, TCU, is now currently ranked 9th in the nation! Sorry, just really proud of my Frogs after last season!
Anywho…. Now that I’m officially out of my reading slump, I’ve been thinking about what I want to read over the next couple of months before 2018 arrives. I think I’ve pretty much got a set TBR for October, but there are so many books that have sparked my interest lately when I’ve been looking at my TBR bookshelf at home. So I decided to come up with some books that I really hope to get to at some point this fall!
City of Saints & Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson
This YA murder mystery set in Kenya sounds like the perfect novel to curl up with on a cold fall night. I’ve heard great things about this book too, so I can’t wait to dive into it!
Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody
I don’t know why, but I always associate circuses and carnivals with the fall season. Maybe it’s because the Texas State Fair is in the fall? Who knows. But either way, I think this is the perfect time to pick this book up.
Defy the Stars (Constellation, #1) by Claudia Gray
Okay, basically I’m just really on a Claudia Gray kick right now and am dying to start on her newest book. It doesn’t hurt that I’m kind of obsessed with the cover too. You can’t tell me that it doesn’t look extremely badass, because it totally is!
The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #1) by Erika Johansen
I own this entire trilogy but have unfortunately kept pushing it aside in favor of other books. However, I’m really feeling the urge to finally pick it up. I’m almost positive I’ll end up loving it once I do, too.
The Dark Days Club (Lady Helen, #1) by Alison Goodman
A novel about a monster hunter set in Regency England? Ummmm, yes please. And shame on me for owning this book ever since it first came out and not reading it sooner. Oops!
Ross Poldark (The Poldark Saga, #1) by Winston Graham
I absolutely love the television show, so why have I been putting off starting the book series? That’s a really good question and one that I don’t have an answer for. However, I always enjoy reading historical fiction during the fall and winter, so now seems like the right time to start!
Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass, #6) by Sarah J. Maas
I cannot stand Chaol anymore as a character. I think he was being incredibly ridiculous towards Aelin, but I’m going to try and let him redeem himself in this book. It’s his time to shine, I guess. DON’T FUCK IT UP, CHAOL.
The Last Wish (The Witcher Saga, #1) by Andrzej Sapkowski
Oh yes, I do plan on finally starting on this glorious series that the award-winning video games are based on. Fall calls for epic fantasy, and it doesn’t get much more epic than this. Also, Netflix is currently developing a tv series on the books! Yayyyyy!!!
Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer
I first read this book right after it was released and then never made it through the rest of the series. I really want to reread this one soon and then continue through the series. I’ve heard it gets better with each book and that always excites me!
If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio
Creepy murder mystery along the same lines as The Secret History? Oh yes, definitely perfect for reading curled up with a nice hot cup of tea during the fall. I can definitely see myself picking this one up over the long Thanksgiving weekend.
What books are you wanting to read this fall? Is there a certain genre or type that you prefer to read at this time of year? Have you read any of the books on my TBR? If so, what did you think of them?
