It’s fall book release season, and, well, my TBR pile/list/shelf isn’t getting any shorter. It doesn’t help that I’ve a bunch of books to look forward to reading. It also doesn’t help that there just isn’t enough time. So without further ado, and in no particular order, here are the top ten books on my TBR list.
10. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick. Quick takes on the topic of school shootings and depression in this book. I’ve read Boy21 and Sorta Like a Rock Star and enjoyed them. I also had an opportunity to see him speak at the ALAN Conference in Chicago in 2011. Cool guy.
9. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I’m really excited for this one. A number of my friends have read it and they say it’s fantastic. I’m trying to decide whether I want to pick up the audio, or if I should just go ahead and read the book. Draw for audio: it’s read by Jim Dale, the guy who did the US version of Harry Potter.
8. More Than This by Patrick Ness. I don’t think there is much that Ness can do to go wrong in my book. First the Chaos Walking Trilogy, which I loved, then A Monster Calls, which I also loved. I’ve heard that this one is written even better than those two. How can I go wrong?
7. Please Ignore Vera Deitz by A. S. King. After I read Ask the Passengers, and loved it, I knew I had to read more by King. So I have this one and Everybody Sees the Ants waiting in the wings, itching to be read.
6. Fragments by Dan Wells. I read Partials on recommendation from one of my BookTube friends, and it was awesome. I don’t know when I’m going to be able to get my hands on this one, but it’ll definitely happen before the new year.
5. The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore. Clearly I am influenced by my friends. One of my other BookTube friends loves this series, so I’m going to give it another shot. I will actually go back and reread I Am Number Four before I read this one, just so I can immerse myself back into this world.
4. Just One Year by Gayle Forman. I loved Just One Day. I wrote “All the World’s a Stage” because of that book. So the companion book comes out in October and I can’t wait.
3. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I have to read this one for Book of the Month at the high school. I could cheat and find a question for them online somewhere, but I like to know what they’re reading, so I’ll read it myself.
2. Rogue (Croak #3) by Gina Damico. I was in a grim reaper phase last year where I read these and watched Dead Like Me incessantly. So this was released on September 10, and now I must read it.
1. UnSouled by Neal Shusterman. I’ve noticed that whatever I list as my #1 in Top 10 Tuesday always happens to be my #1. This week is no different. I’m excited to see what happens to Cam — our Frankenstein’s Monster… and all the other kids too…
[…] Walking series. And I’m pretty certain that I’m going to love Ness’s new book, More Than This, which is on my shelf and will be read at some point this […]
