Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and Bookish. Each week the bloggers at The Broke and The Bookish put out a topic, and discuss their top ten options for said topic. This week’s Top Ten is: Top Ten Books for your Fall TBR list.
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I’m going to do it this time, I swear. I think every time the “TBR list” or “books I want to read” subject comes up, this book is somewhere on my list. I actually have it from the library, in my hot little hands. And I’m going to read it.
Possess by Gretchen McNeil. I read 3:59 by this author and really enjoyed the world building and characters in it. So I decided to pick up one of her other books. I’ll probably read her entire library, because I like her as an author–and I tend to obsess like that.
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. This is another book that almost always ends up on my ‘tbr top ten Tuesdays’ and I’ve yet to read it. I do however, have it from the library and I plan to crack into it very soon.
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. See: compulsively reading an author’s body of work. I’m really hoping I like this one more than Paper Towns, but the preliminary glossing over of reviews on goodreads, I’m not too hopeful. They’ve already mentioned things about this book which struck a nerve with me while reading Paper Towns. I’ll give it a shot, with an open mind, but I’m not expecting much.
Falcondance by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. I’m really hoping that Falcondance brings the series back around for me. I wasn’t too terribly fond of Snakecharm, but I do like the series. If this one doesn’t steer it back for me, I’m probably going to drop the series.
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke. Enter contestant #3 of “I swear I’ll read this one day.” It’s sitting with the other two, in the stack fresh from the library. I’m probably going to start this one next. It’s something that’s called to me for a while.
The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Mass. I’m going to read The Throne of Glass books as well, but I wanted to start with the novellas. I lucked out and managed to pick this up at the library without waiting to reserve it or anything like that.
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff. This is on the list simply because the cover and synopsis are perfect for this time of the year. It looks like it’s going to be a spooky book full of twists and turns and a touch of horror. Perfect to curl up and read with a warm drink when it rains.
Every Breath by Ellie Marney. I’m kind of cheating here, because I’m already reading this book. I got it courtesy of Tundra books for review, but seeing as I’m not very far into the story–I figured I’d put it on here. It’s shaping up to be a great mystery full of surprises, and I’m already in love with the characters.
Pride Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith. Because Halloween is right around the corner, and zombies are in order. Frankly, because I’ve had this book on my shelf since it came out and I haven’t touched it. So I’m adding it to this list, in hopes that it holds me responsible to actually read it.
That is my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week. If you’ve got a Top Ten post, go ahead and link it in the comments. I’d love to check it out. 🙂

Kathrines is my favorite John Green novel (well actually its tied with Papertowns, but it is his funniest novel for sure). I don’t know why it doesn’t get as much love as his other books. I was kind of surprised by These Broken Stars and enjoyed it more than I anticipated. P&P and Zombies is a great Halloween pick!
I love An Abundance of Katherines, and am also really interested in reading These Broken Stars soon. Great list!
I really enjoyed These Broken Stars. I thought it was a fantastic read. I hope you enjoy all of the books on your TBR list! It looks like you’ve picked some good ones!
I’ve heard that ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ is being made into a movie! I definitely need to get around to reading it!
Under the Never Sky was a great read. Great list of books.
I didn’t include it on my list this week because I’m not sure when I’ll be getting around to reading it but I recently picked up a copy of The Throne of Glass and am looking forward to reading it! Great list, happy reading 🙂
I had a really tough time with Snakecharmer too, back when I read it years ago. I loved Hawksong so much and was hoping the whole series was going to be amazing, but ended up dropping it after the second book. However, if you think the third one is better, maybe I’ll pick it up and try to get back into the story.
GAH I need to read The Assassin’s Blade already! I am the worst biggest fan ever.

The cover for The Replacement is pretty neat! And you’re right, it sounds like the perfect book for the halloween season.

I love the UNDER THE NEVER SKY series! It’s awesome. BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA disappointed me, but it is a nice, atmospheric, Halloween-y type novel. I’ve been meaning to read THE REPLACEMENT for a long time now, too!
