Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
In June, I did a Summer TBR for T10T. First, we’ll see how many I managed to finish, and then we’ll talk about my Autumn TBR!
This is not to be confused with my new Seasonal TBR Jar post I made a few days ago—those will be pulled randomly, whereas these are 10 books I specifically intend to make sure I read before winter!

10. Vampire Academy — Richelle Mead
1. Kingdom of Ash — Sarah J. Maas
I mean, how could I not include this one? I have my readings for the rest of the series mapped out so that I’ll be finishing Tower of Dawn riiiight before this releases.
pre-order; releases 10.23.18
2. Vengeful — V. E. Schwab
I just read Vicious and loved it, so I definitely am excited to read this one when it arrives!
pre-order; releases 09.25.18
3. Small Spaces — Katherine Arden
I haven’t read anything from this author yet, but I love MG horror and this sounds so fantastic that I can’t wait for its release date to get here!
pre-order; releases 09.25.18
4. It — Stephen King
I’ve been putting this monster off forever, but I’m finally reading it next month! There miiiight be some interesting information on the way about this one…
5. Kin — Kealan Patrick Burke
All of my horror-loving friends rave about KPB’s writing, and I hauled this one recently, so I’m going to be sure to prioritize it this fall!
6. Children of the Dark — Jonathan Janz
After how much I’ve raved about his book The Siren and the Specter (review here), it’d be a shame for me not to fit another Janz book on the top of my TBR.
7. Doorbells at Dusk — Evans Light
This is a Halloween-themed anthology I was sent recently, and it has taken everything in me not to read it already, but I’m not reviewing it until October so I’ve been prioritizing other things. That said, I’m picking this up later this week!
review copy; released 09.03.18
8. (Don’t) Call Me Crazy — Kelly Jensen
I love a good nonfiction anthology, and this one about mental health showcases a few of my faves, so I’m very eager to start it!
review copy; releases 10.02.18
9. Bedfellow — Jeremy C. Shipp
I absolutely loved Jeremy’s last TorDotCom novella, The Atrocities (review here), and I feel super blessed to have been sent an ARC of his next release, which promises to be super creepy!
review copy; releases 11.13.18
10. Imagine Us Happy — Jennifer Yu
Sometimes, you just know you’re gonna love a book, and this is one of those books for me. It’s a heavy YA contemporary about abuse and toxic relationships, and I’m really looking forward to it.
review copy; releases 10.23.18
Are any of these books on your autumn TBR, too? Which of these do you think I should read first? (And don’t forget to check out my new Seasonal TBR Jar series!)
I love that you included an update on your Summer TBR list!
Here is my Fall TBR list: http://amandanicolle.blogspot.com/2018/09/take-ten-books-on-my-fall-tbr-list.html
Ahhh, how did I forget to add Kingdom of Ash to my Fall TBR?
Also, wow, you did a great job on your Summer TBR! Looking back, I only got through like half of mine. ?
And oooh, my roommate is reading IT right now!
I’m only on Queen of Shadows now, but I had to include it. ? and thank you! Happy reading to you too, and good luck with your fall TBR!
Ooooh, that’s exciting! QoS, EoS, and ToD are all such great & exciting books, I hope you love them all when you get to them!
And thanks! 🙂
Thank you! Haha I hope you fare better with your autumn TBR! ♥
I have yet to finish Tower of Dawn too so I’ll be reading that soon in preparation for Kingdom of Ash! I also, shockingly, haven’t read Vicious yet so that will also need to happen. I recently read a short story of Janz’s (Witching Hour Theatre) and it was quite good so I need to add more of his to my TBR for sure. Hope you enjoy IT! I listened to all 45 hours of that beast on audio but it was well worth it.
Ohhh, Vicious is so good! And I can’t wait to read more from Janz, his writing is just so delightfully creepy. Thank you! I hope you enjoy all of your fall reads! ?
Super late reply, but did you get to read ToD? I was pleasantly surprised by it! 🙂
Well done for smashing your summer list! 🙂 I hope you can do the same for Autumn. Love the look of Don’t Call Me Crazy!
Thank you! You and me both. ? I was actually really surprised I managed to read as much of my summer TBR as I did, so hopefully fall will be the same way. And yes, I’m super excited for it!
Late reply, sorry, but thank you! Don’t Call Me Crazy was really good!
Ooh a Halloween anthology sounds AWESOME! And Vampire academy I really need to read one of these days, I’ve been wanting to forever (especially since seeing the movie, which okay wasn’t GREAT but it did make me want to know more).
Thank you! I am soooo excited for the Halloween anthology – and same here on VA! I didn’t care a lot for the movie but it definitely piqued my interest to read the books.
Happy reading to you, too!
Sorry for the late reply, but thank you! I need more Halloween anthologies in my life after how great Doorbells at Dusk was – highly recommend it. 😀
I don’t have any of these on my list, but they’re all good. Maybe I will add some to my tbr.
If you do, I hope you enjoy them! ☺️
I of course, have Kingdom of Ash on my tbr. Can’t wait for that one!! ?
Yesssss! I started Queen of Shadows last night and I’m really enjoying it so far. I just love her writing so much!
Kingdom of ash is definitely on my TBR for this season! Although it is spring for us Australians haha
Haha true, true! As someone who hates the hot parts of the year, I don’t envy you guys for coming into spring ? I’m so ready to say goodbye to the warm weather!
I envy you guys! I love winter and I’m sad to see it go haha
I am SO EXCITED for KoA!!!! There’s only a month and a few days left!
I knoooow, it’s crazy! I’m flying through the series lately and I’m already excited but sad to know it will be over soon.
Kingdom of Ash is definitely on my TBR… although I don’t know if I’ll get the chance to read it this fall or not. I still have to read Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn, and my library isn’t giving me the opportunity to put it on hold yet. But I will read it at some point.
Oh no, I hope you get to soon! ?
Ahh I love IT! but it’s just so long that I never finished it ??
I’m super nervous because of how long it is ?
I’m ashamed that I don’t know all the titles you’ve mentioned here! I definitely have a lot to check out. I’m not much of a contemporary person (at least, it seems that way this year), but I’m very excited for Imagine Us Happy!
? TTT: Fall 2018 Asian science fiction & fantasy releases to fall in love with
Another late reply, sorry (my pending comments were slammed for some reason), but you totally shouldn’t feel ashamed for not knowing the titles in the list! That just means you hopefully get to add new things to your TBR! 😉 Imagine Us Happy was fantastic – did you get the chance to read it?
I’m scared shitless of IT so that’s promising.. :’) I haven’t put Kingdom of Ash on my TBR simply because.. I already KNOW I’m going to read it as soon as it arrives. Using the seasonal TBR to get myself to pick up older reads haha. :’)
[My post’s scheduled for Thursday; if you need me to send you anything before that just let me know!]
Same. ? Not because of the content, for me, just… it’s so fucking long. Aaaand that’s smart. ? I probably could have left KoA off too, to be fair.
Oooh, yay! I probably will make my post early next week? I have a few double post days later this week already so I don’t think I’ll add to those.
[I’m not awake yet. I thought I wrote shirtless instead of shitless for a second there.. Dear lord..]
Hahaha. Well, you curse on the length, I’ll curse the stupid clown. ?
Okay! I’m curious to see how many victims we’ll have joining in. ? [I was thinking about looking into that linking up-thing that’s used for TTT’s but I’ve no clue how that works.. :/ ]
Wow, congratulations on completing your summer list 😀 I don’t think I have completed even half of the books 😛
Kingdom of Ash is quite in hype these days. I hope you enjoy all of these books.
My TTT: https://flippingthruthepages.com/2018/09/books-on-my-fall-2018-tbr/
You did so well with your summer TBR! I hope you eventually get to Vampire Academy, I love those books.
Good luck with your new TBR too 🙂

Thank you! I definitely want to soon, they seem so fun. ☺️ happy reading, love!
Halloween anthology?? I might have to get my hands on that one!
Right? As soon as they pitched it to me I was like YES PLEASE. ??
I’m super excited for Vengeful as well, I’ve seen it on just about every list today!
I love how stoked everyone is for it! I’m just glad I haven’t had to wait 5 years like some people ?
I’m so excited (and a little scared) for Kingdom of Ash. I’m hoping to read Tower of Dawn right before so I can dive in as well. Fun list (also I love the name of your site!). Thanks for sharing 😀
Here’s my TTT.
Love all your spooky choices! <3
I'm currently trying to finish some series i've started ages ago.
Thank you! ? oooh, what series?
I’m reading now book 2 of the Paper Magician (by Charlie Holmberg) series – it’s a super light read and quite entertaining without turning really deep or depressing.
Managed to finish the Dominion Trilogy by Joe Hart which is a dystopian series.
Ooooh nice! I’ve seen those but haven’t checked them out. I’ll have to look them both up!
I love how you broke up this list into different parts and included a creepy section for Halloween books. I’m adding Don’t Call Me Crazy to my TBR. Thanks for sharing these. Here’s my TTT.
I hope you enjoy It! It’s one of my favorite Stephen King books.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
IT literally stares at me while I sleep. It’s currently living in a porg book sleeve, but it’s right next to my bed. Taunting/haunting me. Also, holy crap, I need Vengeful. I cannot wait a week. It needs to be here now.
Ahahaha I love this. ? I still have to get myself a copy. And yessss, super stoked for Vengeful! ?
I am also planning on reading Kingdom of Ash this autumn, of course! You did so well on your summer TBR, I’m impressed!
My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2018/09/18/top-ten-tuesday-177/
Wonderful list! I haven’t read anything by V.E. Schwab, but I added A Darker Shade of Magic to my list this week because I finally have a copy of it! I also am excited for Kingdom of Ash!
My TTT: https://thecontentedreader.ca/2018/09/18/top-ten-tuesday-…my-fall-2018-tbr/
I love how you broke this down by category (and caught us up on your summer TBR)! Happy reading!
Thank you, Emily! ☺️ I’m glad you liked it!! Happy reading to you too!
Congrats for reading everything on your summer tbr! I have Vengeful and Small Spaces on my tbr too, I can’t wait to get more of Victor Vale!
Thank you so much love!! I really can’t wait for Small Spaces, I love a good MG horror ? and yes to Victor! (And Mitch!)
I like the way you laid out your post. Easy to see your goals and how well you did on your summer choices. Why didn’t you finish Eragon? I loved that book.
I read these lists and I start to panic. There are so many books out there that I haven’t even heard of and now I want to look into them. But my TBR is already over 100 books long. If I just read them it would take me over a year to finish the list without adding new titles (which I do all the time.) Eek! My Fall TBR list
Sorry for the super late reply! I missed so many comments on this post that I’m just now getting around to double-checking them all, but I saw you asked about Eragon and wanted to reply. It was actually one of my all-time favorite books as a kid and I’ve probably read it 10-15 times, but I wanted to reread it this summer, and sadly it just didn’t live up to my memories! I ended up putting it down about 100 pages in because I didn’t want to tarnish my memory of it too much. 🙁
I’m so extremely excited for Kingdom of Ash and Vengeful <3 I'm should finish my reread of the Throne of Glass series right before the release so I'll have all the details sharp in my memory haha.
I'm amazed at all the books you crossed off of your Summer TBR, I'm the worst with making and sticking to TBR's haha.
Ooooh awesome haha! I’ll be finishing the series just in time, too. I’m excited! And thank you! ? happy reading this fall!
I want to read Mirage so badly!!! My tbr at the moment is only getting longer since school is keeping me really busy ?
It is soooo good! I really hope you get some free time and can read it soon ?
Umm, this may be weird but I got SO excited seeing how much of your Summer TBR you read, congrats!!! Seasonal TBRs seem like they’d be easier to stick to than monthly TBRs, but also seem like they could get out of control easily.
Awww thank you!! I was honestly shocked, I’ve never done this well with a seasonal TBR before!
ooh i love the graphics on this post. and look at your summer tbr!! my god, impressive. hope your autumn reading is excellent <3
Thank you!! ?? happy reading this fall lovely!
Wow, good job on completing your summer TBR! I’m probably close to a 70-75% completion rate. Not too terrible, but man, I need your self-discipline and organization! 😀
Haha, thank you! I’ve never done this well on a seasonal TBR before, so I’m hoping I can do just as well this fall. We’ll see! 😀
AHHH I am SO EXCITED for Vengeful & Kingdom of Ash!! I hope you have a fantastic reading season Destiny <3 I cannot wait to see your thoughts on so many of these books. <3
Heather @ Heather's Reading Hideaway|My Top Ten Tuesday!
Looks like a fun autumn TBR list. I really want to read that novel by Katherine Arden.
Thank you! It looks really good. 🙂
My list this week is pretty much just made up of TOG books as I am rereading them before the final book comes out. I am so damn excited! I hope you enjoy all your reads.
Haha I love it!! I don’t blame you. Thank you, I hope you enjoy your rereading!
I feel like I’m the only person who hasn’t read the Throne of Glass series! IT LOOKS SO GOOD. WHY HAVEN’T I READ IT?!
My TTT post!
Awesome that you read so many of them already! Happy reading this fall season 😀
Thank you love! ☺️? happy reading to you too!
Thank you! ☺️?
Wow, you did great with your summer TBR. I failed at mine. I attempted to read Eragon a long time ago, but I also DNFed it. Good luck with your fall TBR!
Thank you! I loved Eragon as a kid, but as an adult… yikes, the writing does NOT hold up! 🙁 And thank you, good luck with yours as well! ♥
‘It’ is my all-time favourite book…I just love it and I hope you enjoy it too! Kin is also on my tbr and I hope to reading that next month. Need to finish my shark horror books this month first!
Thank you! I’m really nervous to read It but I think it will be a fun read. And I hope you get to read Kin, and that you enjoy it!
You did so well on your Summer tbr! I finished Eragon a few years ago and rated it 3 stars but never could get myself to pick up the rest. I don’t think I’d care for it now either.
Thank you! I loved Eragon as a kid and must have read it 10-15 times, honestly, but as an adult it does not hold up well AT ALL. The writing had me cringing out of my skin. 🙁
I love how you put the last seasons tbr up and if you read it or not. That’s a fun idea! Here’s hoping you enjoy all of your fall reads and good luck with It! The last one I read by Stephen King was Cujo and that destroyed me for life lol!
Thank you! 🙂 Haha oh nooo about Cujo! My mom is always begging me to read that one because it terrified her years and years ago.
