Top Ten Tuesday – Books on my Fall/Autumn TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is Books on my Fall TBR List. As I’ve just started back at uni, I won’t have as much time to read, so it’ll probably take me the rest of the year to get through this, but here you go anyway.


Local Girl Missing by Claire Douglaslocal-girl

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this through NetGalley, so it’s top of my list. I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, so I’m really looking forward to getting started. I’ve read quite a few ‘missing’ books recently, some good and some bad, so hopefully this is on the good side.

 

 


the-readerThe Reader on the 6:27 by Jean-Paul Didierlaurent

Quite a few people have recommended this to me, so I finally bought myself a copy. I’m not sure when I’ll read it, probably as a filler when I’m getting bored of thrillers, but I am looking forward to it.

 

 


The Lie by C. L. Taylorimg_0279

This has been on my TBR for so long. I received all three C. L. Taylor thrillers as a set for my birthday and I still have this one left. The other two were very quick reads, so I’ll probably read this when I’m busy and need an easy-read break from studying.

 


When the Doves Disappeared by Simg_0224ofi Oksanen

This has been on my TBR for even longer. I’ve been in a very long historical fiction lull, but I’m reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah at the moment and loving it, so hopefully my brain is back into historical mode!

I bought this on recommendation of the Waterstones shop assistant. After I got it home I sort of regretted my decision, do to the very mixed review on Goodreads, so I’ve been putting it off a bit. I will get round to it though. My main goal for the rest of the year is to finish all the books I have physical copies of, so I’ll get this in somewhere.

 


snow-childThe Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

I borrowed a copy of this from my bestie Juliet (Not Capulet) and haven’t got round to it yet. She had mixed feelings about it so I think that’s what’s putting me off, but again, it will get read this year!

 

 


missing-presumedMissing, Presumed by Susie Steiner

This is another that I bought on a whim in Waterstones after seeing it floating around for a while. It was only when I got home that I realised again the review on Goodreads aren’t that great. Hopefully I’ll be in the few that did enjoy it!

 


Smasmall-great-thingsll Great Things by Jodi Picoult

This is another ARC that I’ve had sitting on my Kobo for a while. I’ve never read any Jodi Picoult, but I’ve always heard good things, and my mum has read most of her books. I’ve heard this book is back to her best, so I’m looking forward to giving it a go.

 

 


img_0271We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

I’ve started this before and it’s been sat on my Currently Reading shelf on Goodreads since then. I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to read it then, so I put it to one side. It’s one that needs to be read slowly, a bit at a time, so I think it’ll be good when I don’t have much time to read over the next few months. I’ll be able to dip in an out of it and not worry how long it’s taking me to get through.


What’s on your Fall/Autumn TBR?

    Interestingly, I also went through the same thing with We Need to Talk about Kevin. I just read one chapter but couldn’t get into the story then but hope to continue it soon.I hope it will work out for you the next time you pick it. Missing Presumed didn’t work for me but I hope you will enjoy it. I also have Local Girl Missing and can’t wait to read it soon.Enjoy all your books.
