Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR List


I have a lot of books I want to read this fall, but here is my top ten. 

 

1. Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte
This book is on my classics to read in 2014 list and since the year is coming to end, I need to read it. I have been saving this book for the fall though, because that seems like the perfect time to read this book. I'm excited to finally read this one.

2. Kiss of Deception, Mary E. Pearson
I just bought this one recently, and I have been really enjoying YA fantasy. This one sounds like a great start to a new series, and the cover is so beautiful. 

3. Persuasion, Jane Austen
This one is also on my classics to read in 2014 list, and will be my second Austen novel. I need to catch up on my Austen so I can start watching all of the movie and mini-series adaptations!

 

4. The Sherlockian, Graham Moore
This one comes recommended to me by my mother, and again it seems like fall is the perfect time to read this book. Plus Oscar Wilde makes a cameo in this book! :) 

5. Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein 
Another book I NEED to read. I have heard nothing but good things about this book and I'm eager to read it. I haven't read any historical fiction in a long time and I'm in the mood for some. 

6. Dracula, Bram Stoker
When else would you read this book?



7. The End of the Affair, Graham Green
I haven't read any Graham Green yet, and I own three of his books. This is the one of his that I bought first, and I get a fall vibe from it. This one is about a man and a woman who break off their affair, but the man just can't quite get over it. 

8. The Raven Boys, Maggie Stiefvater
I've heard nothing but good things about this series, and Maggie Stiefvater in general. This book sound mysterious, and creepy and perfect for fall.  

9. Tiger Lily, Jodi Lyn Anderson 
I can't believe I haven't read this book yet! It is happening this fall! 


10. The Darkest Minds, Alexandra Bracken  
The final book in this trilogy is coming out this fall, so I want to marathon it. I haven't read a lot of dystopian lately, so this will be a fun treat.

What's on your fall TBR. Leave me a link, I want to know!

  1. Oh, wow. This is a great list, Mallory, and I LOVE the covers you chose for the classic titles. Persuasion is my FAVORITE Jane Austen novel, and after you read it, you need to read For Darkness Shows the Stars (the Sci-Fi YA re-telling by Diana Peterfreund). Tiger Lily is on my TBR pile, too!!! I've sneaked reading some passages and just died from the beautiful writing.

    1. Ah! Good to hear you liked Persuasion and For Darkness Shows the Stars, since I already own it! I love the books that Vintage Classics publishing puts out, they did Jane Eyre and Persuasion in my post. I NEED to read Tiger Lily, since Peter Pan is my favorite book of all time!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Great picks! Jane Eyre and Persuasion are on my favourites list. Jane Eyre is the perfect fall read, last year I re-read it while sitting in a park and sipping on a Pumpkin Spice Latte :). Code Name Verity is one I've been seeing a lot of reviews for lately, might have to add it to my TBR list! And Tiger Lily, I can't believe I haven't read this yet either!!

  5. Tiger Lily!! One of the rare books that made me cry. It's one of my favorite books, especially when it comes to fairy tale retellings. The raven boys is also good :D Happy reading!
