Top Ten Tuesday: Fall TBR

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: Top Ten Books That Are On The Top Of My TBR List For Fall.  Wow, this is a really hard one but here goes:
  1. Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern - I've heard a lot of great hype about this one.
  2. The Taker by Alma Katsu - again, I've seen lots of raving about this book.
  3. Kissing the Witch: Old Tales in New Skins by Emma Donoghue - loved her book Room and am excited by the premise of feminist versions of fairytales!
  4. The Informationist by Taylor Stevens - it's about time I read a thriller, and I heard this one is fantastic!
  5. Train Dreams by Denis Johnson - I loooooved his book of short stories Jesus' Son and can't wait to read Johnson's new novella.
  6. Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness - I need to finish this last book in the trilogy!! 
  7. The Game of Kings by Dorothy Dunnett - I love me some good historical romance!
  8. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - heard this is a fantastic new fantasy novel - sold!
  9. The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman - I've been wanting to read some Hoffman for a long time, starting with her newest novel sounds like a good idea to me :)
  10. The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing by M. T. Anderson - this one is sitting on my shelf waiting patiently to be read...time to get to it this fall!
Wow, that was difficult!  Did I miss any new reads that should make my top fall TBR?


  1. Great list! I want to read The DoveKeepers too, I love Alice Hoffman. I also really like Dorothy Dunnett, historical romance is my favorite genre!

  2. Great list. I have a few of these in my pile that everlasting.

    Yara @ Once Upon a Twilight!

  3. Whoa, never heard of Kissing the Witch... but it sounds really neat! I don't know your musical tastes, but Sara Bareilles has a song called Fairytale that reverses many of those stories I grew up hearing... quite entertaining to listen to, I think. :) I've also heard of Night Circus, but it didn't quite make my list (mainly because I forgot about it). I'll have to look further into it! Great list.

  4. I just finished The Night Circus and loved it! I thought for sure it wouldn't live up to the hype, but it did.

    I've been hearing a lot of good buzz about Ready Player One...maybe I should add it to my stack of books!

  5. Great list! I need to read an Alice Hoffman novel too! Happy Reading



  6. You've got a bunch of great books to look forward to! I've also heard some great things about The Night Circus! Fall gets me really excited about reading...

  7. I want to read The Dovekeepers as well. I have a few of Hoffman's books (my friend is dying for me to read Here on Earth!) but I haven't read any of them yet. Hope you enjoy it!

  8. Everyone of these are on my list...except for Monsters of Men, which I am reading RIGHT NOW. And WHOA.



    But don't move it up on your TBR because of little ole' me! :)


  9. The Dovekeepers is also on my to-read list! Alice Hoffman has a quote that I really like: Books may well be the only true magic. :)
