Top Ten Tuesdays

Posted 27 September, 2016 by Lianne in Meme / 14 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: Books on my Autumn TBR

Yaaassss, it’s that time of season again: cooler weather and books I plan on reading this season 😉

In no particular order:

  1. The Frozen Heart by Almuneda Grandes — This was the only book from my summer TBR list that carried over, lol. I actually did start reading it, but then other books cropped up and drew my attention away. But I think there’s a very good chance I will finally read this title this autumn season 😉
  2. Everything Beautiful Began After by Simon van Booy — I’ve been wanting to read this book for a very long time. There’s something about the title alone that makes it perfect as an autumn read…
  3. Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death by James Runcie — I still haven’t watched series 1 of Granchester but in the meantime I look forward to reading the first book in the series that the show was based off on 🙂
  4. The Trails by Robert Moor — I received this book from Simon & Schuster CA. I had seen it in passing but yeah, now I’m curious about it…
  5. Time and Again by Jack Finney — This book has been on my TBR for a few years now…With Sci-Fi Month coming up, maybe this is the time (and the year) to read it?
  6. Brian McClellan’s Promise of Blood — I think I started it once months back but then decided to pick it up again at a later date. Not that my TBR has gotten any smaller since, but there’s something about the book that makes me think of the autumn time…
  7. Vicious by V.E. Schwab — Is this the season that I finally read something by V.E. Schwab? I have this and A Darker Shade of Magic sitting on my TBR pile waiting to be read…
  8. Worst. Person. Ever by Douglas Coupland — It’s been so long since I’ve read anything by Douglas Coupland…
  9. Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman — There’s something about the autumn time that’s perfect for cozying up to a Neil Gaiman book (or two; I also have Anansi Boys on my TBR pile)…
  10. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte — Throwing in a classic to my TBR list as I haven’t read very many classics this year (I think it’s because the classics that are sitting on my eReader waiting to be read are such chunksters…have to be in a particular mood to read them). This is the only major Bronte book I haven’t read yet so it would be nice to finally get around to reading it 🙂

And those are the books that I plan on reading this autumn season! What books are you planning on reading? Lrt me know, I’d love to hear from you!

  1. I can’t wait to read ANYTHING by Neil Gaiman! I have The Graveyard Book and need to get on it! LOL! Vicious is an awesome read! I hope you love it too! Happy Tuesday and happy reading! 😀

  2. I’ve not heard of Time and Again before but it looks really interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing your review when you get around to it.

    Is it bad that I read about fifty pages of Anansi Boys when it first came out, put it down and never, ever went back to it? I don’t even have a reason for not finishing – I was enjoying it!

  3. Oooh, I forgot about Time And Again. I just received that book from a friend in a book swap last month. I am interested in how you enjoy it!

  4. I adore Grantchester. . .but I didn’t love Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death so much. It wasn’t that it was bad, but I think I was spoiled from seeing the characters (and Sidney’s cute puppy Dickens) on the screen. I definitely recommend reading the book first. I suspect it would be more enjoyable that way!
