I haven’t done one of these in a while! I have kind of missed doing the lists to be honest, so I jumped at the chance to share my Autumn to-be-read list. I like to do this every season, even though I don’t get to many of the books that I actually list. But still, it’s a nice thought, right? And in case you somehow were not aware, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
1. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
Obviously, I have already read and reviewed Heir of Fire, but I want to read it again because it is the most flawless freakin’ book and I want to devour everything again. Since I wasn’t a huge fan of Throne of Glass (I thought it was very standard), I want to reread the entire series so far so that I can get another feel for the characters now that I love Celaena and know more about the others. Plus, I have The Assassin’s Blade to read soon and I can’t do that without rereading the other books. Because logic.
2. The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks
I’ve been wanting to read this trilogy for sooooo long, and I am finally in the mood for some assassins and fantasy, so The Way of Shadows is being pushed to the top of my pile. I bought the whole trilogy in the local charity shop for about £3, so I hope I love this one enough to marathon the entire thing in one go.
3. The Well of Ascension and The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson
THE FINAL EMPIRE WAS FLAWLESS AND IT RUINED MY LIFE AND I AM TERRIFIED OF CONTINUING BUT I CANNOT WAIT BECAUSE OH MY GOD VIN AND OH MY GOD KELSIER AND BRANDON SANDERSON CAN YOU LEAVE ME ALONE TO DIE PLS THANK YOU
4. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
I started reading this with a group of ladies who I know from Booktube, but I fell way, way behind when I went to Germany and now they’ve sped ahead and I’m stuck where I am. Not that it’s their fault at all, but I’m kicking myself for not keeping up. I want to continue with this book because I was really enjoying the setting of historical Scotland, and it was surprisingly easy to read. Soon, Jamie, soon.
5. The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson
Or Judith will kill me.
6. Deadline by Mira Grant
Or Meg will kill me.
7. The Martian by Andy Weir
Or Tatum will kill me. And also because Spartacus is on the front cover.
8. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
Tatum and I are reading this one together this week and it’s going to be so much fun. That was sarcasm because I read Sharp Objects a couple of months ago and it was anything but fun. It was one of the most disturbing books that I have ever read, and if I had to label only one book as “macabre” then Sharp Objects would be that book. But Dark Places is going to be awesome anyway, I know it.
9. The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
See reason #7, but ignore the Spartacus bit.
10. Ashes to Ashes by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian
DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG I HAVE WAITED FOR THIS I DONT THINK YOU QUITE UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH AT THE MOMENT
So, what about you? Let me know which books are on your TBR for this season. Have you read any of the ones that I’ve mentioned above? No? THEN WHY HAVEN’T YOU READ HEIR OF FIRE?!?!?! Ehem.
