Top Ten Tuesday: Autumn To-Read List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list. 

Now, as a rule I don’t tend to set TBR list. I have a whole slew of reasons to justify why, some of which you can find here. However, that does not mean I am completely against them. Realistically, I know that I am not going to read more than 10 books by the end of the year, I’d be surprised if I even read half of this list. That doesn’t mean that I don’t want to, I’m just not in the mood to do so. Having said that, these are the five books that I a currently being drawn to and might read in the Autumn.

1. Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman: Technically I am cheating with this one since I’ve already started it. However, at the rate I’ve been going, it could take an entire month for me to finish it. So far, I’m really enjoying this one. It’s not too heavy, and the dialogue between the gods is quite comical.

2. Bountiful by Sarina Bowen: I always feature this one, but I am 100% going to read it. I was in the mood to start it the other day, but was already in the middle of Norse Mythology. You all know how much I love the True North guys, and knowing that this book is a crossover with my favourite Brooklyn Bruisers is a bonus. I can’t wait to see what shenanigans they get up to.

3. The Queen and the Cure by Amy Harmon: I loved The Bird and the Sword,and I was so excited to hear that Kjell was getting his own book. ‘The Bird and the Sword’ set us up with Kjell’s own internal conflict and I can’t wait to explore those issues and see where his journey take him.

4. Beartown by Fredrik Backman: Ice Hockey is my weakness, especially when you set it in a town that lives and breathes the sport. There are so many interesting dynamics that come with being such a sports driven community. Team players are placed on pedestals they never wanted to be on, and the pressure they face is immense. I’m excited to explore all of these different dynamics.

5. Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta: It has been made abundantly clear that this book is one of my all time favourites. However, I have yet to actually finish the series itself. Finishing the series is one of my goals for next year because I am determined to get to the finish line, no matter how painful it gets. Before I can actually do that, I think it would be best for me to re-read and reacquaint myself with Finnikin.

What’s on your Autumn TBR list?

    1. OMG yes. This is the exactly how I get with series. I’ll read the first book, maybe the second, but then hesitate when coming to the third. I don’t know why I do this. Maybe I’m trying to spare myself from more pain??? I really don’t know.


  1. I totally relate to the TBR thing, it’s a lot of pressure and realistically what I want to read depends on my mood so there’s no way to predict what I actually want to read a month in advance! I haven’t seen anyone mention Finnikin of the Rock in such a long time, I definitely have to remember to put it on my never-ending TBR pile 😀

    1. Right. The mood I’m in now might be completely different in a couple weeks time. There’s just no predicting which direction my mood will take me. Finnikin is definitely a must addition to any TBR. It’s such a good fantasy, with amazing character dynamics and development. Definitely a must!
