Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme:
September 24: Books On My Fall 2019 TBR
Oh man. I could fill an entire notebook with all the books I want to read this season. But I guess I’ll settle for sharing the ten I’m most excited for and most likely to pick up.
I know that I’m definitely going to read this book because… I’ve started it already.
Y’girl was lucky enough to trade for an ARC of this and I picked it up a few days ago. And guys. It’s good. I’m 100 pages in and it pretty much has me by the throat.
It’s a YA sci-fi set in a world where automae rule over humans, and has an f/f romance. I’m here for it.
Gideon the Ninth
This book sound so weird and wonderful. It’s about necromancy, and guess what? Also f/f.
The hardback is literally sitting in my room, calling for me.
Into the Crooked Place
I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this at YALC and I’m mildly contemplating punching myself in the face for not having started it yet.
I also pre-ordered the Illumicrate special edition because, what can I say, I’m a slut for those sprayed edges.
The Black Hawks
A few weeks ago, I was crying to Hollie about how great this book sounds and how much I want to read an early copy.
And I don’t know if Harper Voyager were listening in on our conversation or something, but literally the next day a link to download it from Netgalley arrived in my inbox.
I screamed. (Hollie can confirm.)
I love Leigh Bardugo with my entire soul so I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time.
And I somehow managed to trade for an ARC of it???
So if I can get my butt in gear, I’ll be reading and reviewing it before it releases.
Serpent & Dove
I tried so many times to request a review copy of this from Harper360 (I’ve lost count), but alas it wasn’t to be. (They ignored me *cries*)
But then it arrived on Scribd over the weekend and I started listening to it and lived happily ever after.
*whispers* I’m going to be on the blog tour for this and it’s going to be amazing.
This is about two sisters who are driven apart by war and it’s inspired by Black Panther. *heart eyes*
Oh look, a new novel by one of the most celebrated writers in fantasy?
A novel about angels and magic and survival? Yes please, I’ll take ten.
I don’t know what to say to y’all other than that I’m Baz trash and I’ve pre-ordered the Waterstones special edition with the flowery sprayed edges.
Follow me on Instagram to watch me lose my actual sh** when it arrives.
(Yes that was a casual plug, no I don’t regret it, link is in the sidebar.)
I was blessed enough to be able to get an ARC of this at YALC, so you bet your butt, I’m going to try and read it as soon as I can.
It’s Adam Silvera writing queer fantasy. Get in my eyes.
What are you reading in autumn/fall?
