Top Ten Tuesdays

Posted 22 September, 2015 by Lianne in Meme / 20 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This week’s topic: Top Ten Books On My Autumn TBR

Seems straightforward enough πŸ˜› In no particular order:

  1. David Mitchell’s The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet — I must’ve put this book on my seasonal TBR lists how many times in the last few years? Perhaps I should make it a priority to read it this time around!
  2. Darragh McKeon’s All That Is Solid Melts Into Air — Another book I believe was on a previous seasonal TBR list and that I didn’t get around to reading. This feels like the perfect autumn read though, so perhaps I will get around to reading it this time around πŸ˜‰
  3. Kelley Armstrong’s Cainsville series — I have Omens and Visions on my TBR queue on my eReader so I think I’ll be getting around to it sometime this autumn. Seems like the perfect read around Hallowe’en, actually…
  4. Cecilia Ekback’s Wolf Winter — It’s more like a winter read, actually, but with the paperback coming out in the autumn (2 November, to be exact) I was actually approved an eARC on NetGalley so yeah, will be getting around to this book sometime in the next few weeks now (Edit: started reading this book over the weekend, lol :3) πŸ™‚
  5. Viola di Grado’s The Hollow Heart — After reading Elena Ferrante’s L’amico geniale books (see author tag), I’m in need of more Italian literature. I’ve heard wonderful things about this author so yeah, hopefully I’ll get around to this book soon πŸ™‚
  6. Marisha Pessl’s Night Film — I believe this book was on my TBR list last autumn and yeah, never got around to reading it. This year, perhaps? Seems like another great title to read around Hallowe’en, actually…
  7. Ann Leckie’s Ancillary Sword — I read Ancillary Justice (review) last year and absolutely loved it, so yeah, I’ll be reading the second book in the trilogy for Sci-Fi Month this year πŸ™‚
  8. Duala O’Connor’s Miss Emily — I won a copy of this book a short time ago and heard so many good things about it so I hope to read it real soon πŸ™‚
  9. Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone — I kept seeing this book in other people’s blogs and lists every so often that I became rather curious about it and finally checked it out for Kobo. For a change of pace I’ll probably read this book.
  10. Hannu Rajaniemi’s The Fractal Prince — I read the first book in the trilogy, The Quantum Thief (review) two years ago and thought it was really fascinating. I recently picked up the second book and yeah, it’s going to be read for Sci-Fi Month πŸ™‚

And that’s my list of books for this week! What books are on your TBR list this autumn/spring?

  1. I really should have looked back at previous TBR posts — I bet I’d have a lot of repeats! I haven’t started the “Ancillary” series yet, but I have books 1 & 2! I kept swearing that I’d read them once #3 was released, and since that’s happening in October (I think), I have to start. πŸ™‚

  2. All of these sound like wonderful autumn reads. Night Film is the only one from your list I have read, and I really enjoyed it. It does make for a good read this time of year. I hope you enjoy it if you read it! I can think of a number of books that probably could be on my list every season. LOL I have every intention to read them and just don’t for some reason. Someday, right? Their time will come.

  3. Fascinating list! I haven’t read any of the books or authors on it, but I’ve heard only good things about Laini Taylor. Also, I’m intrigued by The Quantum Thief and The Fractal Prince…I’ll have to look into that series!

  4. Interesting list! I keep thinking that I should read Daughter of Smoke and Bone one of these days. It’s on my (very) long list. πŸ™‚

  5. Daughter of Smoke & Bone was a big win for me, especially the first two books in the series. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the third book a lot too but it just didn’t quite measure up to the previous two. Most people that I know loved the series too but I do know that it didn’t quite work out for other people too so I hope you have the best of luck with it πŸ™‚ Happy reading^^ xx

  6. Like you, I’ve seen “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” everywhere! It seems to be one of the most hyped YA books. I should look at it more closely, because it might be an interesting trilogy to read. Happy fall reading, Lianne. Hope you find some new treasures among these. πŸ™‚

  7. I’ve really been wanting to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone too! I’ve had a copy since April and I STILL haven’t gotten around to it! One day soon…

    Here are my Top Ten!

  8. I have actually only heard of Daughter of Smoke from your list. I have been meaning to read it for a while but haven’t gotten round to it yet. Maybe I’ll put that one on my winter tbr! I really like the cover to The Hollow Heart, so pretty, I want a copy just so I can put it on my shelf!
