Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Fall 2019 TBR (#59)

11:03 PM

It's time to fall into reading! Here are ten of the books on my TBR for autumn. I'm not including what I plan to attempt to reread. Let's face it: I probably won't get to a good chunk of these books because I am THE WORST as we all know. But, I'm optimistic every now and again and it seems today is one of those days?

For those of you who are new to my blog, or the book blogging community, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, originating over at the Broke and the Bookish, and is exactly what its title hints at. Each week we're given a topic to explore in our entries. 

My Friend Anna has been on my radar for only a small amount of time. BUT, when I saw that the book existed I was all over it. A few years back, I started following the case/downfall of Anna Delvey and her faux identity pretty closely. Scam artists intrigue me because they are a particular brand of villain. So, naturally, I'm intrigued. (Also, if Emma Kenney doesn't nab the role of Anna in that Netflix film about her I'm gonna be SO pressed.) I've heard nothing but good things about Sorcery of Thorns so it goes without saying that I hope to get to it this autumn!

Admittedly, a lot of this list seems to be more ambitious than I might actually accomplish, BUT. I am definitely keen on getting to The Dearly Beloved before autumn is over. It sounds quite different to what I've been reading, so I'm intrigued! And, listen, the other day I was feeling exceptionally nostalgic for a good vampire book and The Beautiful caught my eye. It felt like fate, so I'm curious.

Based on some of the books I'm eying, or ARCs I have on my TBR, I need a good contemporary to balance things out and fortunately for me Frankly in Love, well, exists! Definitely one of my more anticipated 2019 reads. Queenie is one of those books that I've heard nothing but great things about and has been on my TBR since March. SO, clearly, I need to get to that because I've been wanting to for so long.

One look at the synopsis for Gods of Jade and Shadow will give you a good idea as to why I want to read it! It sounds brilliant and honestly, perfect for autumn? Something about it screams autumn read to me. Of course, so does The Last Life of Prince Alastor. I've been saving back the second Prosper Redding book for autumn because there is something about Bracken's prose that just really works for me in the autumn. I mean, it works year round, she's a definite favourite, BUT, autumn? Yes.

To close out my list, I'm going to say that I've heard mixed things about House of Salt and Sorrows but MOSTLY it's been all positives. I wasn't all that intrigued about it until I was in Target one day and the book trailer was playing on one of the screens. I was HOOKED. Then, I saw that Stephanie Garber loved it and I was all in. Lastly, because it's been a while since I read a good true crime/non-fiction novel, So Brilliantly Clever is on my list. Which, honestly, might actually be named Anne Perry and the Murder of the Century.

What's on your autumn TBR? 
Do you think you'll get to each of them?
