Books That I Hope to Read This Fall

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?

  1. Read ToD for Yrene! Chaol is better than I expected, and I was NOT a Chaol person going into this book. It’s probably one of my favorites now, though I’m only halfway in. Love the rest of your list, good luck with it!

    1. Oh, I’m so glad to hear that this book changed your opinion on Chaol! I was a little pissed when I found out she was focusing only on him this book, when Empire of Storms left on such an awesome cliffhanger. I hope you continue to enjoy it!

  2. The PoV shifts between him, Nesryn, and Yrene. It’s a good time. Yrene is also so much better than I ever thought she would be. Since we only got a brief visit with her in the novella, I wasn’t sure I’d like her either. She’s awesome!

    Still dying on the inside about Aelin from the end of EoS. 😂 I can’t believe the book is pushed out til next September. I need some closure on this story, ya know?

  3. Gahhh! so many good ones! I’ve actually heard from many others that the audiobook for The Queen of the Tearling is actually really good! long but good lol. I think I’d do both just to tackle the page count that way I’m always reading it LMAO! I’d really like to read The Dark Days Club cuz it’s totally my aesthetic in my head lol. Defy the Stars was so good! you have me wanting to read her Star Wars books smh. Lastly… I have thoughts on Chaol…I actually really liked him until SJM did her usual “give your fave character a 360 personality change” move. My hubby actually just finished reading this book 2 nights ago and he gave it 4 stars & that says a lot to me cuz he is stingy with his stars haha! Happy reading Larkin! ❤

    1. Really?! I already own the whole trilogy, so I’ll probably just end up reading it rather than spend one of my Audible credits on Queen of the Tearling lol. I think I’ve heard that Emma Watson is going to be starring in the adaptation for it too, which should be really cool!.. So glad you enjoyed Defy the Stars! I think that one’s probably going to be one of the first ones that I tackle on this list because I need more Claudia Gray, pronto!… Hey, that’s awesome that your hubby like ToD though! I’m just praying that it’s not boring or that Chaol doesn’t spend the whole book being a total asshole. I mean I liked him in the first two books, but I’ve always been #TeamRowan more. Just can’t help myself, haha!

      1. Emma Watson?!??!?! *GASP* this just skyrocketed to the top of my TBR! lol smh, I’ll be googling info in a bit. I could use some more Claudia Gray pronto too! *sobs* & I asked him about Chaols attitude & he said it takes place back in his home so no he isn’t being an ass, no Aelin in sight lol. I am not a fan of Aelin smh, sorry she just bugged the hell out of me in EOS. I do however, love me some Rowan! ❤ ❤ ❤ all day everyday! LOL!

      2. Yeah, I think she’s even help producing it? Don’t quote me on that though lol.. Well that’s good at least! It’ll be interesting to see Chaol at home, since his family is pretty awful… Yessssss, Rowan! Be still my beating heart!!


  4. I reeeeally want to read Daughter of the Burning City, City of Saints and Thieves, and Defy the Stars soon! I think Daughter will probably be the one I read first – I just had the chance to meet Amanda Foody and hear her speak at the Boston Teen Author Festival this past weekend and it has me so excited to read it!
