It’s finally the favorite season of mine: fall! I hope the leaves turn all sorts of colourful shades soon and we get to drink pumpkin spice lattes, wear turtleneck sweaters and boots! To the bookish part of this Top Ten Tuesday, here’s my TBR list for fall!
#1 A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigit Kemmerer
I have been eyeing this almost new YA book for a while and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s finally time for me to read this. The fact that it’s a retelling is what makes this super intriguing for me. The only retellings I’ve read are Cinderella (Cinder), Little Red Riding Hood (Scarlet), Rapunzel (Cress) and Sleeping Beauty (Winter) – so yes, The Lunar Chronicles. But I would like to add Beauty and the Beast to the collection.
#2 Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
I’ve read MILLIONS of good reviews on this book already and I feel like I read it already because I can feel that it’s gonna be amazing. Last year was the first time I wanted to buy it and Waterstones didn’t have it in store and for some reason I never tried again but read all the amazing reviews and people loving the characters that remind them of Marissa Meyer’s Captain Thorne – I have to get over myself and just order this one right here and now. On the spot.
#3 Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
I have no idea how this book will turn out to be: will I be overwhelmed because Leigh Bardugo claimed this is not a “YA/easy and child appropriate read”? Or will I absolutely love it because it deals with elite universities and their secret societies?
#4 Enchantée by Gita Trelease
I bought this during the summer break, but I’ve been quite hesitant about reading it, although I’m not completely sure why. I shall start it this fall, I suppose.
#5 Peril at End House by Agatha Christie
After my long break from Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot stories, I have come to the conclusion to continue with my marathon! I recently watched the new Murder on the Orient Express (with Kenneth Branagh – Gilderoy Lockhart -, Johnny Depp, Judy Dench…) for the second time and so I thought I’d restart with her great mysteries!
#6 Non-Fiction books: If I have time and the right mind!
I really want to broaden my horizon and also expand my knowledge and so I hope to find some time to read educational books: whether that be on my favorite subject (history), some philosophy (my dad and grandfather’s profession), some politics (my mom’s side) or something totally different!
That’s it – short list, but I don’t want to make unrealistically long lists which I won’t read anyway! So, happy reading and have a great fall!
