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.

  1. Great choices! 🙂 Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde is on my to-read list as well.. Actually I already own an edition of that (a beautiful one ❤ ) but it's in Italian 😀 I could read that, but it would take a lot longer because reading in Italian is still much much slower than reading in English… ah well… we'll see.
    And I actually just finished Leave Me 🙂 It wasn't quite what I expected I guess, but over all it was still an enjoyable read!

  2. A Gathering of Shadows is really great, even better than the first book! I loved all of Gayle Forman’s books especially Just One Day and I’m really excited about Leave Me 🙂 Great list.

  3. Great list! Heartless is of course a must read 🙂 And ADSOM was amazing, one of my fave reads this year! I have AGOS ready but I want to wait to start it for a bit because I don’t want to wait too long to be able to read book 3. Not sure if I’ll be bale to resist for long though 🙂

  4. V.E. Schwab has quickly become one of my favourite authors so I hope you enjoyed ADSOM (I’m taking the fact you’re going straight onto AGOS as a good sign)! I haven’t read any of the other books. I might read Heartless if I come across it in my library but I gave up on Meyers Lunar Chronicles after book 2 so I’m not too keen on reading anything else by her just yet in case I don’t like it either. The Cursed Child was on my TBR for a while but I eventually took it off. I guess I fear disappointment!

  5. Great list. I need to read A Darker Shade of Magic series at some point as I’ve heard so many good reviews about it. Another good book about girl bullying is Girls Again Girls: Why We Are Mean To Each Other And How We Can Change by Bonnie Burton. It’s more of a general book about bullying and now age specific but I found it really good.
