Top Ten Tuesday: My Fall TBR

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

This week’s theme is books on my fall TBR, which there’s always a ton on my TBR. Now some of these books are ones that I’m planning on buying and reading, others I already own.

So first, books I own and have yet to read (that are towards the top at least):

10.) You by Caroline Kepnes

You

This one hasn’t been sitting around for too long, and I’m pretty excited to read it. So it’s in my top 10 to get at this fall. But until then it’ll be sitting by my night stand…waiting.

9.) Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick

The Ghosts of Heaven

I’m actually about half way through this already….but I got distracted by other books. So I’m looking to finish this one up soon.

8.) The Girl From The Well by Rin Chupeco

The Girl from the Well (The Girl from the Well, #1)

I just bought this one even though I’ve read mixed reviews about it. It still looks like something I might enjoy reading so I bought it anyways! I’m waiting to read “The Girl From The Well” a little closer to Halloween though.

And now books that are either newly released or soon to be released:

7.) The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich

The Dead House

The minute I discovered this book I knew I wanted to read it.

Here’s the description:

Over two decades have passed since the fire at Elmbridge High, an inferno that took the lives of three teenagers. Not much was known about the events leading up to the tragedy – only that one student, Carly Johnson, vanished without a trace…
…until a diary is found hidden in the ruins.
But the diary, badly scorched, does not belong to Carly Johnson. It belongs to Kaitlyn Johnson, a girl who shouldn’t exist Who was Kaitlyn? Why did she come out only at night? What is her connection to Carly?
The case has been reopened. Police records are being reexamined: psychiatric reports, video footage, text messages, e-mails. And the diary.
The diary that paints a much more sinister version of events than was ever made publicly known…

Sounds pretty awesome right? Once again I’m going to save it for around Halloween hoping that it’s at least a little scary.

6.) The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy

The Creeping

This one was released fairly recently, I’ve heard a lot of good things about it. Apparently it has a really dark and creepy atmosphere to it. So I’m hoping to pick it up soon.

5.) Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

Pretty Girls

This book is going to be released next week (on my birthday) and I’ve heard mixed reviews of it. It’s a thriller and I think it sounds interesting enough for me to give it a shot.

4.) Alice by Christina Henry

Alice

A retelling of “Alice in Wonderland” obviously, and apparently a very grim, dark, and graphic one. I’m really excited to get my hands on this book, I’ve heard a TON of good things about it. There is one drawback for me though, it’s been mentioned that there is some really graphic, disturbing content such as rape. I don’t think that’s enough to keep me from reading it though.

3.) The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow

The Scorpion Rules (Prisoners of Peace, #1)

This one was released today and I’m just waiting to buy it (because I’m lazy). It sounds so cool and I’ve had this on another one of my mini lists. Check it out here.

2.) The Traitor Baru Cormorant

The Traitor Baru Cormorant

Once again this one’s been on here before, check it out on my “Most Anticipated Reads for September”.

1.) Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)

If any of you have been on my blog before then you KNOW how excited I am for “Six of Crows”. IneeditIneeditIneeditIneedit.

Are there any books on YOUR fall TBR that we have in common? Are any of you guys as excited as I am for any of these books?

Top Five Most Anticipated Reads: September

Top Ten Tuesday(4)

5.) The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow

The Scorpion Rules

Publish Date: September 22nd, 2015

Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books

I am pretty excited to read this book, it sounds SUPER interesting. Basically to prevent war on Earth the daughters and sons of the world’s generals, kings, presidents are kept as hostages. So if a nation declares war then their child is killed. Now doesn’t that sound like a promising book? The more I think about it the more excited I get! I hope it doesn’t disappoint.

4.) Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy, #1)

Publish Date: September 22nd, 2015

Publisher: Greenwillow Books

Series: The Gold Seer Trilogy – #1

First off isn’t that a GORGEOUS cover? This book is about a girl who can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. It’s set during the Gold Rush so you know it’s got to be good.

3.)  The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson

The Traitor Baru Cormorant

Publish Date: September 15th, 2015

Publisher: Tor

Again. Isn’t that cover awesome? This is an epic fantasy (not YA) about a girl who hides within the ranks of an empire who conquered her land, her goal is to climb high enough to be able to free her people. As a test to her loyalty this empire sends Baru to Aurdwynn where she must bring order, this land isn’t easily tamed though and Baru must play the games of power in order to survive. Also she has an attraction to a Duchess Tain Hu, so perhaps a lesbian romance? Exciting. I LOVE fantasy novels and this one sounds SO promising!

2.) Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

Vengeance Road

Publish Date: September 1st, 2015

Publisher: HMH Books for Young Readers

Sheesh, what is it about all these amazing covers? I absolutely adore this one though. This is a western YA book and I’m excited just by that fact, seems to me we don’t have enough western YA’s. “Vengeance Road” is about a girl, Kate Thompson, whose father is killed by a gang known as the Rose Riders, and then she basically goes on a revenge kick. Awesome? Yes. Kill Bill-esque? Maybe so, and I LOVED those movies. So I will definitely be picking this book when it’s released.  (Tomorrow)

1.) Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

sixofcrows

Publish Date: September 29th, 2015

Publisher: Henry Holt & Company

Series: Six of Crows – #1

So for those of you who follow this blog then you already know how excited I am for “Six of Crows”. For those of you who don’t (even though you totally should) then I shall tell you. Six of Crows is about one grand heist and an ensemble cast of six outcast characters trying to pull it off. It’s been compared to being “Ocean’s Eleven meets Game of Thrones” if that doesn’t hook you then I don’t know what will.
