Autumn 2022 TBR (and a look back at my AMAZING summer progress) [Top 10 Tuesday]

September 20, 2022

It’s time for my Autumn TBR!

Before diving into my summer goals, I want to take a look back at my Summer TBR and see how much progress I’ve made.

summer ’22 tbr

  1. ✅ Beanstalker and Other Hilarious Scarytales ❌DNF❌
  2. ✅ Hammers On Bone ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  3. ✅ What Moves the Dead ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  4. ✅ Black Tide ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  5. ⌛ Frightmares
  6. ✅ #thighgap ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  7. ⌛ House of Earth and Blood
  8. ✅ Strangers ⭐
  9. ✅ The Haunting of Leigh Harker ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  10. ✅ Kill River ⭐

I think this is the most successful seasonal TBR I’ve EVER done, and I’m proud of myself! 🤩 I completed 8, and I’m currently reading the remaining 2 (and I think I’ll finish both of them soon!).

autumn ’22 tbr

I decided to focus this seasonal TBR primarily on some of my reading challenges!

🍂 The Devil Makes Three // Tori Bovalino → gift Ashley was SO sweet and sent me a copy of a book she loves very much, and she said it’s spooky, so I decided I want to read it right away! 🥰

🍂 A Heart in a Body in the World // Deb Caletti → TBR jar I’ve been meaning to read this FOREVER and was really excited when I pulled it from the jar!

🍂 The Ghosts That Haunt Me: Memories of a Homicide Detective // Steve Ryan  TBR jar + review copy Gotta love pulling a TBR jar title that also happens to be an ARC releasing soon AND it fits the true crime reading I’ve been obsessed with lately.

🍂 The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires // Grady Hendrix → TBR jar + 2022 TBR Also gotta love a TBR jar title that’s also on my 2022 TBR! 😂

🍂 Mysteries of Thorn Manor // Margaret Rogerson → review copy I miss these soft book babies. 🥰

🍂 Lost in the Moment and Found // Seanan McGuire → review copy One of my favorite series of all time!

🍂 Pestilence // Laura Thalassa → 12 in 12 TBR Malli recommended this one for my “12 in 12” TBR list, which I’m trying to catch up on, and I’m excited to start this series after having it on my TBR for sooo long!

🍂 Ghost Squad // Claribel A. Ortega  2022 TBR I’m also trying to finally start playing serious catch-up with my 2022 TBR!

🍂 Riot Baby // Tochi Onyebuchi → 2022 TBR I think this might be one of the first ones from this list that I’ll start, it’s a quick read and looks so interesting!

🍂 The Love Hypothesis // Ali Hazelwood  2022 TBR Yep… it’s finally happening! 🤭

    Excellent summer progress! I don’t really keep a note of progress as I sign up for Blog Tours so they then take up most of my reading time.

    The Love Hypothesis is an excellent book (in my opinion!)

    Have a great week!

I am INSANELY jealous you got a review copy of Mysteries of Thorn Manor bc I am dying to get my hands on that one!

    Woo, Love Hypothesis! I hope you enjoy it, Destiny! 😍 I’m so looking forward to Rogerson’s book cos I miss these book lovers too but I’m also really curious about A Heart in a Body in the World. It sounds intense though but I’ve heard so many good things. Can’t wait to see what you think of it! Happy reading 💜

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries September 22, 2022 at 2:08 pm

      Thank you, Dini! I’m so excited for all of these. I suspect that A Heart in a Body in the World is going to wreck me a little bit, but I’m looking forward to it – you know how it is. 😂
