Top Ten Tuesdays

Posted 24 September, 2019 by Lianne in Meme / 23 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. In Jaunary 2018 the meme was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic: Books On My Fall 2019 TBR

Wow, where has the time gone? Well I hope everyone had a lovely summer (or winter, depending where in the world you are) and that you had plenty of reading done. I managed to get a bit of reading done this summer, which was a pleasant surprise given I was also juggling a myriad of other things like work and social events (wow, I think I’ve gone out more this summer than I had in the past =O The introvert part of me is shocked, ahahaha). School and work is back in full swing, alongside other happenings in my creative and personal life, so in the meantime the following are books I hope to get around to this season–fingers crossed!

  1. The Good People by Hannah Kent — I think I listed this in my summer TBR list but the opted to read it this autumn instead; seems more of an autumn read anyhow πŸ™‚
  2. Melmoth by Sarah Perry — I think I listed this one in my spring TBR list but then decided after reading a page or two that this would be much cooler to read in the autumn. Hah, so we’ll see how it goes πŸ™‚
  3. The Witchfinder’s Sister by Beth Underdown — Picked this book up earlier this year and I’m excited to read it, the premise sounds very interesting and kinda chilling.
  4. The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison — Had this book on my TBR pile for yeeeeeeears…Given that I finally got around to reading some books long on my TBR pile, is this the year I finally read this book too?
  5. A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan — Spot a trend in my readings so far? This was given to me as a birthday gift I think last year…Sort of held off on reading it as I want to just immerse into it. Seems like the season for it, right? πŸ™‚
  6. A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving — I, errr, started reading this over the summer, put it down and opted for other books, so now I’m hoping to pick it up again and just finish it lol.
  7. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng — Read her first book, Everything I Never Told You last month and absolutely enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to reading this book sometime this season.
  8. Transcription by Kate Atkinson — This book screams autumn for me for some reason. Anyway I enjoy reading her books and this one sounds like it’ll be a great read.
  9. The Book of M by Peng Shepherd — I thought about reading this during the summer but decided to hold it off until the autumn. So we’ll see πŸ™‚
  10. Belgravia by Julian Fellowes — Might read this sometime this season. We’ll see, lol.

And that’s my list of books that I hope to tackle in the next few months πŸ™‚ What are you hoping to read this season? Let me know, I’d love to hear from you! πŸ™‚

    I have been searching for a copy of Little Fires Everywhere for months and I just found it in my library, so I might be joining you in reading it this season (then again I might get distracted and read something completely different)

  2. I’ve had The Goblin Emperor on my TBR for years too… maybe this will finally be my time to read it! I’ve been meaning to read The Book of M too. Looks like you have a great list of books coming up! (I also read Owen Meany ages ago, and loved it.)

  3. Ooh, I haven’t read any Kate Atkinson, but Transcription has been on my TBR list for a while. Will look forward to seeing what you think! I actually just read The Goblin Emperor after dragging my feet for several years…I found it a challenging read, but worth it in the end.

  4. The Goblin Emperor has been on my list for ages, too. My list is full of books that sound fantastic, but when it comes time to actually starting a new one, it’s usually late at night and I opt for something easy or familiar so I can go to sleep. I guess I need to begin books in the middle of the day!

  5. I added Book of M to my list after seeing the cover lol but I’m really excited to read it too. The premise is so interesting and I kind of feel like it’s one of the more underrated books. Hope you find some time to read these in between the busy-ness of life πŸ™‚

  6. Love the pretty covers you feature – and that they all match!! Aesthetics, you know. πŸ™‚

    I’ve seen Celeste’s books around the blogosphere, and I think I’ve even seen some booktube reviews/videos about them, but haven’t ever given her books much of a second glance. There’s just too many… !! Hope you can read all of these, and that all the happenings in your life are good. πŸ™‚

    Appreciate you visiting Finding Wonderland.

  7. Love the fantastical theme of your TBR (and also the blue cover trend, lol). I haven’t read any of these books, but The Witchfinder’s Sister sounds really interesting!
    Also same: I shifted quite a few of my summer TBR books onto my fall TBR.
    Hope you have a great fall and enjoy all these books. Happy reading! πŸ™‚
