TTT: Fall TBR List

Time to settle in, grab a good book, and wrap a blanket around you, because Fall is just around the corner. We had a few days of cold temps, and I can’t wait for the 60s to come and stay!

1 All the Crooked Saints -Maggie Stiefvater

I got my signed copy from Book Con and I’m ready to dive in to Stiefvater’s new stand-alone book.

2 Bonfire – Krysten Ritter

I was so happy to pick this ARC up at Book Con. Ever since Jessica Jones, I’ve been a huge fan of Ritter and I’m excited to see what she brings to the table with this thriller. Also sounds great for Fall!

3 Dreamland Burning – Jennifer Latham

This was a book that I ran across at the library and the cover caught my attention. After I read the summary I knew that I needed to add it to my TBR.

4 The End We Start From – Megan Hunter

I have three ARCs from NetGalley on this list. This one had me intrigued, as it centers around a woman who enters motherhood as the world starts to crumble apart from rising waters.

5 The Floating World – C. Morgan Babst

My second NetGalley ARC, centered around a family preparing for Hurricane Katrina. Crossing my fingers this is done properly, since there are many who are still living with the consequences of Katrina.

6 The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – Mackenzi Lee

I’ve been talking about this one for months. I just want to read it now!

7 The Girl in the Tower – Katherine Arden

I just read The Bear and the Nightingale and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I went right away to NetGalley to request the second book (out December 5th) and I jumped for joy when it was accepted. To be honest I was very surprised by that one.

8 Murder on the Orient Express – Agatha Christie

I remember watching the 1974 movie with my mom ages ago and I remember loving the story. I’m on the fence right now on the new movie (mainly Depp), but I do want to finally read the book before the next movie comes out.

9 One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest – Ken Kesey

Decided for Banned Books week I wanted to read a book that popped up on a few banned lists, and this book must have pissed some people off. Can’t wait!

10 The Phantom of the Opera – Gaston Leroux

I read Phantom when I was in middle school. I was pretty obsessed with the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical so I devoured this book. Now that it’s been almost… two decades… oh lord :O… since I’ve read Phantom, I wanted to see if I still thought it was good.

11 The Portrait of a Lady – Henry James

I love the Turn of the Screw, a short story by Henry James, and wanted to give one of his full-length novels a try. With 560 pages, I hope I like it, or I might be going back to his short stories!

12 Purple Hibiscus – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

This is my book club’s pick for October and the first Adichie book. I’ve read quotes from her book ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ and I’m hoping I’ll like her full-length novel.

  1. Though I’ve seen her books around the blogosphere on numerous occasions, I’ve not read a novel by Maggie. Still, I like the idea this one is a standalone, and coupled with all the buzz this one’s getting, perhaps I should take a closer look. 🙂 Happy fall TBR-ing!

  2. Great selection! I always love to see a varied list with a bit of everything on it. The only ones I’ve read are Murder on the Orient Express which is great (I loved the old movie of that with Peter Ustinov – not so sure about the new one. Kenneth Branagh, who I usually really like, doesn’t strike me as right for Poirot…). And One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest many years ago, which I remember mainly as weird. It’s on my Classics Club list for a re-read. The movie of that with Jack Nicholson is brilliant, but very different from the book, if I remember rightly.

  3. I just requested Krysten Ritter’s book from NetGalley. I loved her in Jessica Jones, so I hope her book is good! I had a similar reaction as you to The Bear and the Nightingale, it was so much better than I expected and I’m looking forward to the sequel. I loved Adichie’s Americanah but haven’t read the one on your list.
