This is a weekly tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s challenge is to pick ten books from your upcoming fall TBR!
I’m obsessed with making lists, so I make my TBR lists ridiculously early. I’m already working on December’s list. They’re flexible, don’t get me wrong, but it happens. Anyways, the reason I’m telling you guys this is to say that I’m going to divvy this up by month! I’ll list my most exciting planned reads below: 4 for October, and 3 each for November and December. <3 Each month’s TBR is themed, and I’ll explain the themes below.
(And yes, I know December is when winter starts, but dammit, the first 20 days are still fall!)
October TBR picks:
(BOO!kish Bingo TBR – primarily horror/thriller themed)
1. Strange Weather – Joe Hill
I love Joe’s books, and I love horror anthologies, so when I heard he was coming out with a new one, I flipped my lid. I was lucky enough to be approved for an e-ARC of this one and it’s taking all of my willpower not to read it early!
2. The Hollow Girl – Hillary Monahan
A book about a sexual assault survivor using magic to get revenge? GIMME.
3. There’s Someone Inside Your House – Stephanie Perkins
I know this hasn’t been getting the greatest reviews, but I’ve already got it pre-ordered, and something about the idea of Perkins writing a YA horror just really intrigues me.
4. Blue Lily, Lily Blue – Maggie Stiefvater
This has literally nothing to do with the horror/thriller theme. I just can’t bear the thought of waiting too long to continue the series, plus, I’m buddy reading this with a couple of my mods from the Life & Lit group!
November TBR picks:
(Catching up on ARCs!)
5. Retribution Rails – Erin Bowman
I have an ARC of this one, despite having not read the first book. I do own a copy of Vengeance Road, and I’m hoping to get to it before September ends.
6. Between the Blade and the Heart – Amanda Hocking
I hear great things about Amanda’s writing, so I was pretty pumped about getting an ARC of this beauty!
7. The Night Market – Jonathan Moore
I got this in an ARC trade with Chelsea over at The Suspense is Thrilling Me, and she had nothing but good things to say about this author, so I can’t wait to dive into it! (It might actually get bumped up for my October TBR)
December TBR picks:
(No ARCs – just unread books already on my shelves!)
8. The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas
Trust me, I’m just as shocked as you guys are that I haven’t read this yet, especially given the fact that I pre-ordered it months before it even released.
9. A Gathering of Shadows – V.E. Schwab
I’ve been putting off continuing this series because I hear you basically have to move from book 2 straight on to book 3, so I’ve actually made room for this and ACOL on my December TBR.
10. The Assassin’s Blade – Sarah J Maas
I’m finally going to start Sarah’s other series! *fangirlish screaming*
