Top Ten Tuesday: Autumn TBR List


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we’re talking about the books on our Fall TBR lists. I thought about doing a list of upcoming new releases I am excited about, but decided to stick to what is currently on my reading list for the next two months.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack Thorne. For a while, I didn’t think I would read it. But I can’t resist, good or bad!

Heartless – Marissa Meyer. The release date for Heartless could not come soon enough!

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde – Robert Louis Stevenson. Every October I like to read gothic horror, thriller, or another type of spooky story to put me in the mood for Halloween. When Jekyll and Hyde made an appearance at the end of last season on Once Upon a Time, I knew I had to read the book this year! (Side note: Who else watched the season kick-off on Sunday? Emma, no!!)

A Darker Shade of Magic  – V.E. Schwab. I just finished DSoM today, but since I started it after the first day of fall, I’m counting it on my Autumn list! My review is on its way.

A Gathering of Shadows – V.E. Schwab:.Starting this one tonight!

Leave Me – Gayle Forman. Gayle Forman will be doing an author visit at the small, independent bookstore close to my home in October. I hope to read her latest before she’s in town!


The War of the End of the World – Mario Vargas Llosa. I have a beautiful Folio Society edition of this one. It’s such a delight to hold!

The Story of My Experiments with Truth – Mahatma Gandhi. I think the whole world could use a bit of Ghandi right now.

Little Girls Can Be Mean: Four Steps to Bully-proof Girls in the Early Grades – Michelle Anthony. I have heard great things about this book. My daughter is at that age where, well, where little girls can be mean.

Wherever There is Light – by Peter Golden. This is the October selection for my book club.
