This is probably the first time that I’m posting a TBR on the blog because I usually don’t set TBRs for a specific time. I know I won’t really follow through, since I’m a HUGE mood reader.
That said, I actually do have quite a few books that I HAVE to read this fall. And I’m pretty sure I’ll get to them, hence the confidence to make a TBR.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jana @ The Artsy Reader Girl and this week’s topic is Books on my fall 2019 TBR.
Rebel by Marie Lu
The #1 book on my list is Rebel, because I feel like I’ve been waiting MY WHOLE LIFE for it. Even when this book wasn’t in the works, I was hoping for something more from the series. Champion’s ending left me wanting for more, and I was so sad to see it end there.
I’m super glad that Marie Lu decided to continue the series. I even reread the first three books in preparation for Rebel‘s release. I. AM. READY.
The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo
I will be completely honest with you. I do not know what this book is about. Literally have no. clue. Why is it on my “need to read” list then, you ask?
I’m taking part in the Autumn is for Asia read-along on Instagram, and it’s buddy read book for October is The Ghost Bride. I’ve read the buddy read book of September which was The Poppy War. I also finished Girls of Paper and Fire last week, which was one of the other suggested reads. I have faith in the hosts’ picks and I want to read books I’ve not heard of. The fact that it’s written by an Asian author just makes it all the better.
Our Wayward Fate by Gloria Chao
This book is also on the list for Autumn is for Asia as the buddy read book for November. I am quite excited for this book because I really liked American Panda by the author. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.
Even if I didn’t know the author, I’d be sold on this book from the synopsis. It sounds cute, and like it has a few tricks up it’s sleeve. I’m looking forward to finding out!
Educated by Tara Westover
I actually started this book a couple weeks back, but I just don’t have the motivation to continue reading it. The book is good enough that I should be okay with it, but somehow I don’t feel like continuing to read it. Maybe it’s just my mood. I am determined to finish it, though. It’s going to be my start at non-fiction.
Kafka On The Shore by Haruki Murakami
I read Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami recently, and I WAS MOVED. It was damn good. But I’ve heard that it’s an anomaly amongst his works. Kafka On The Shore is the kind of book that he usually writes.
I bought Kafka a couple months back after finally caving to the Murakami hype. I want to know why everyone loves him so much. I really need to read it this fall because it’s high time.
With The Fire On High by Elizabeth Acevedo
I LOVED The Poet X. It was brilliant. I jumped onto the hype train, and I now add to the hype. If you haven’t read The Poet X, you really should.
With The Fire On High is the author’s second book. The Poet X was written in poetry form, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This book is written in prose. The synopsis sounds really promising and I’m sure the author has written the book just as well in prose.
I’ve been waiting to be in the right mood for this book, and I’m pretty sure I will be in the next couple months.
Awk-weird by Avery Flynn
My list is never complete without at least one romance book in it. Gotta have some on hand all the time in case I’m in need for a happy dose.
I first saw this book on Nose Stuck In A Book Blog’s Instagram, and of course I had to find out what it’s about. And it sounds PERFECT. This romance is right up my street. I love awkward heroines, unlikely romances and hilarious writing.
I have read Avery Flynn’s books before so I am going in with some confidence.
Faker by Sarah Smith
Nose Stuck In A Book Blog is really a bad influence on me, and also my newest GO-TO PLACE for romance recommendations. Yvette has SUCH. GOOD. TASTE. It also helps that I like a lot of the books that she loves, including my favourites. I usually end up checking out any book that she raves about or recommends.
I noticed Faker on her Instagram, and it caught my eye. My gut said that it could be good so I read the synopsis on Goodreads and it sounds really good. Another new release, added to my TBR.
Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell
I am SO EXCITED for this. I read Simon Snow right after it released, and it’s been ages. I’m very excited for Wayward Son to bring back Simon and Baz to me. I SHIP THEM SO MUCH.
That Girl From Nowhere by Dorothy Koomson
This book has been sitting on my shelf since FEBRUARY. I picked it up, along with a bunch of other books, in a book fair. Most of them have been gathering dust in my shelf. I really need to read them, and this is my next pick.
It’s a mystery novel and it actually sounds really good! The second I’m in a mood for mystery, I’m reading this one.
And that was my fall 2019 TBR!
