Books On My Fall 2019 TBR
I have so many books I want to try and squeeze in and autumn (or fall) is the perfect season to really knuckle down and get through some books that have either been sitting too long, taunting me from my shelves or alternatively have just been released or are due to be released soon (but are ones I have been waiting an age for!) Here are the books I am hoping to get to over the next couple of months:
1. Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell
I can scratch this one off my list because I just read it today haha! Seriously though, I couldn’t wait to start this one – I have been too long without any new Simon and Baz content. I am still processing my feelings but overall I loved it (although not as much as Carry On). I will definitely be re-reading it (probably right away, to absorb more of the story) so I’m counting it on this list! I fear it may have put me in a book hangover situation though…
2. The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
This book sounds right up my alley and the perfect spooky read coming up to Halloween (my favourite holiday even though we really don’t make a big deal of it so much here in the UK). The cover is stunning and I am really looking forward to diving into this feminist retelling of Dracula told from the perspective of his ‘brides’.
3. Tempt by Natalia Jaster
I am a huge fan of Natalia Jaster – her Foolish Kingdoms and Selfish Myths series are both dear to my heart. Tempt is the third Selfish Myths book and I absolutely cannot wait for it! Wonder has long been a favourite of mine and I cannot wait to get her story, along with Malice who is one of the most fascinating quasi-villains I have ever happened across. It will not be long until it’s out and I am counting down the days…
4. To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
I must be the only person who hasn’t read To Kill a Kingdom yet! I have heard so many great things and it has been on my TBR for far too long. I really want to read it before Into the Crooked Place is released (because I have that one pre-ordered from Fairyloot – the special edition was just too gorgeous to pass up!)
5. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I know, I know, I’m a terrible bookworm! I’ve had this series sitting on the back-burner for ages; I even bought the special edition Illumicrate box for Darkdawn despite not having read the series yet. I’m pretty confident I will like it but I think I was just holding off until all three books had been released so I could binge-read them (they seem very binge-worthy to me). 😉
6. Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Argh, another series which I should have read bloody ages ago (and another one that I have bought tonnes of merch and special edition boxes for!) I really need to read a series before sinking so much money into the fandom (but that’s just not me – I’m not the most sensible sort, really). I do think I will enjoy this series though and it is past time I jumped on the bandwagon proper.
7. Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
This series just sounds so darn good but I’ve dragged my heals for ages and I think it is time I finally bit the bullet (heh) and did myself a favour by reading this book already! Everything about it firmly places it as a ‘me book’ and I don’t think I will be disappointed in the slightest (I really need to stop putting books off just because the rest of the series hasn’t been written/released yet – after all the anticipation is part of the fun!)
8. The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley
Everything about this book appeals to me; I should have read it long before now if I’m being totally honest. The story sounds amazing and it looks like the type of character-driven fantasy I look for. I have had so many recommendations from people who know me about this book so it is definitely on my to-read list for autumn.
9. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
It’s Holly Black – enough said. After reading (and loving) her faerie books, it’s definitely time I checked out her book about vampires! I’ve only had it sitting on my Kindle since 2013 so not all that long ago really haha! I’ve heard a lot of great things and I pretty much know I will probably love it. 😉
10. Vicious by V.E. Schwab
Oh yeah, this baby is so getting read sooner rather than later! I’ve had this book for ages on my Kindle and I even bought several special editions more recently based on how much I love Schwab’s other works. Vicious just sounds like something I will really enjoy (I love anti-heroes with grey morality). I have been saving this one but I think the time is now…
I have read To Kill a Kingdom yet either, so you’re not alone there. 🙂 If only we had more time to read, eh?
So many great books, I hope you’ll get to all of them this autumn! I’m very excited to read Nevernight *fingers crossed I’ll love it*!
The Nevernight series is definitely worth binge reading!! I hope you love it! <3
Good luck with your Fall reading list! I’ve read STALKING JACK THE RIPPER, but that’s all from your list. I hope you love it and all these others on your list.
I bet you’ll love Vicious, Brin!
Stalking Jack the Ripper sounds interesting.
So many good ones on this list! Vicious was quite good, and the Coldest Girl in Coldtown is PERFECTLY atmospheric for the series 🙂 I, too, need to read most of the books on this list To Kill a Kingdom, Nevernight, etc. So pumped for Wayward Son, and jealous that you’ve already read it!!!
You aren’t the last person to read To Kill a Kingdom! I’m there in the boat with you. I have it on my shelf though! I *have* read Stalking Jack the Ripper and Caraval, but haven’t continued their respective series yet (even though I want to!)
