Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. I keep seeing US book bloggers tweet about having spice pumpkin lattes so it must be autumn over there. Wish that drink was available here because I wouldn’t mind giving it a try. Like I said before, there really aren’t any seasons here in Singapore so when I say “my fall TBR list”, I’m referring to American fall months. So I did a lousy job with my summer TBR list, I only read 2 out of 10 books (and currently in the middle of the 3rd one). I didn’t even get to half of them! But then I don’t feel too bad about that because I usually just go for what I feel like reading at the moment. I’m still looking forward to reading the books in my summer TBR pile but I also wanted to talk about some titles that I want to read in the coming months.
First off, I have a friend who will be passing by Singapore from Australia at the end of the month so I ordered three Aussie YA books (from Booktopia, thanks to Maggie for recommending the site) that I’ve been wanting to read:
Girl Defective by Simmone Howell – I haven’t read anything by this author and I think this one would be great to start with as I’ve seen rave reviews from Aussie bloggers.
Wildlife by Fiona Wood – I enjoyed reading Six Impossible Things and I have a feeling Wildlife will be even better because I heard that it has an older feel to it.
Alaska by Sue Saliba – I’ve heard that the writing is lovely in this one and I just couldn’t resist that pretty cover.
Next are several fall releases that I’m looking for:
Friday Brown / Friday Never Leaving by Vikki Wakefield – Continuing with the Aussie YA theme, I can’t wait to read Friday Brown because All I Ever Wanted was just lovely. I think it’s awesome that this title is readily available now that it has US and UK editions.
Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller – I heard that this even better than Trish Doller’s debut novel, Something Like Normal. I’m excited to find out if that’s true!
Just One Year by Gayle Forman – Ahhh, I really can’t wait to read this companion novel to Just One Day! I want to know what happens to Allyson and Willem after the end of the first book.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – Having enjoyed Attachments, I have a feeling I will like Rainbow Rowell’s YA novels too.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater – Looking forward to learning more about the boys and Blue. So many friends have raved about this sequel, I hope I end up loving it as well.
Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan – I’ve been wanting to read this since I finished Unspoken last year. How can I not when it ended the way it did?
Shadows by Robin McKinley – It’s a Robin McKinley novel! Of course, I want to read it.
So many good titles are being released this fall. I noticed that all of the titles in this list are YA. If I do get to read all of these, I’ll probably mix them up with some adult reads. Keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll be able to follow this list! What about the rest of you, what books are in your priority list for the coming months? Are you excited to read any of the titles in my list?
