Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I'm Dying to Read This Fall (but probably won't because school has taken over my life)

There are sooooo many books I want to read right this minute, but school is in full force now, so most of my reading time is dedicated to required reading, and the rest of my free time is dedicated to junk TV because it combats school nicely. So here's a list of books  I really want to read this fall, but probably won't. 

 

1. The Raven Boys, Maggie Steiefvater
This book has been on every TTT TBR list for the past year, I swear! I am definitely committing to reading this book before the end of this year. 
  
2. The Hourglass Factory, Lucy Ribchester
I love reading historical fiction novels in the fall! I'm really eager to get to this one, so hopefully I can pick it up this season. 

3. The Kiss of Deception, Mary E. Pearson
Another book that makes many appearances on my TBRs. I really need to start this series this season. 

 

4. The Wrath and the Dawn, Renee Ahdieh 
I've heard lots of great things about this book, and I think it will be a quick and fun read. 

5. The Uninvited, Cat Winters 
Fall is the perfect time to read Cat Winters, as her books always have a creepy/ paranormal element to them. This is Winters' newest release and I'm hoping to pick this one up soon. 

6. The Eyre Affair, Jasper Ffored 
This literary mystery series looks like a lot of fun and something that would be the perfect fun read during school. 

 

7. Station Eleven, Emily St. John Mandel 
This one has gotten a lot of praise lately, and the concept sounds really interesting. 

8. The Book Thief, Marcus Zusak (reread)
This is one of the books on my rereads goals lists I made at the beginning of the year, and I think Fall is the perfect time to reread this one. 

9. Jackaby, William Ritter
I've had this one on my ereader forever! The sequel just came out not that long ago, and I really want to start this series. 


10. The Book of Dead Days, Marcus Sedgwick 
Sedgwick is one of my favorite authors, and this is the only unread book of his that I own.  

Let me know what's on your fall TBR!

  2. First off, I laughed SO HARD at your blog post title. I am in grad school and I sooo feel you....school has taken over my life too. I made this TBR list and was pouting cause I was not sure I'd get to any of these books. You have a great list, Mallory. My FAVORITE book of 2015 was Bone Gap and also STATION ELEVEN. You must read it. It is stories of people and how they connect and also a non linear back and forth timeline. It's amazing how it all comes together! Hope you get around to it.

  3. The Raven Boys is SO good!!! I hope you fall in love with the magic of that series as much as I did. I tried starting Station Eleven, but I got distracted. I'm going to need to go back and have a do-over with it to decide if I want to continue on with it or not :\

  5. Oooooh this is a really good list. The Kiss of Deception is pretty good (but the second book, The Heart of Betrayal is even better). The Wrath and the Dawn is by far one of my favorite books of the year! Sooooo good. I'm sure you'll love it! Check out my TTT!

  6. Let's see: I am a fan of The Raven Cycle series and look forward to the 4th book in it. The Book Thief is amazing. The Wrath and Dawn is actually pretty steamy. I am having book club this week over Station Eleven. What a list!

  10. Great list, Mallory! The Raven Boys made my list this week, too, and I'd really like to read The Hourglass Factory soon. I have unread copies of The Eyre Affair and Station Eleven, too, and with Sci-Fi November approaching I may try to get Station Eleven under my belt. :) I hope you manage to read plenty of these even though you have a lot of school work!

  12. Hi! I know what you mean about having your life taken over! I should have put that with my title as well :) But...if you get to one book on your list, I can't recommend The Eyre Affair enough. There aren't enough superlatives and emojis to express how much I love that book and that series. It's soooooo entertaining. (There isn't enough space for all the 'o's either!) Good luck!

  13. Great list. I'm tempted to read The Kiss of Deception and Jackaby. I just read The Raven Boys and it's great. I love it but some readers don't like the slow start.

  14. The Raven Boys is on my TBR too. You should definitely read Kiss of Deception. One of my new favorites. I forgot about The Wrath and the Dawn. I should've added that to my TBR. Great list!

  15. Raven Boys has been on my TBR for ages, too. Autumn seems like it could be a good time to read it, though. The Wrath & the Dawn also looks amazing. And I definitely know what you mean about school taking over. I hope you do find the time for reading these!

  19. The wrath and the dawn is one that I have had on my wishlist. I need to get a hold of a copy.;)
    The Eyre Affair is a fun story! Quirky, but fun.
