I almost never plan my books ahead of time. I read whatever I feel like reading whenever I feel like reading it. I did plan books this month because I just so happen to be doing my own Series September Reading Challenge, but that's also the reason I now have a whole list of books I didn't get to read when I stumbled upon them the past few weeks. Plus, I have numerous pre-orders coming soon, so YAY NEW BOOKS! On with the part of the post where I actually get to gush about them!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is:
Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR
10. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
I’m not entirely sure when I’ll actually read this, but I have really wanted to for so long! I love circus in real life, so I also love books about it, and those are hard to come by. Plus it’s got magic which is basically the perfect combination.
9. The Shifter (The Healing Wars Book 1) by Janice Hardy
Janice has, hands down, the best writing tips blog I’ve ever read. I’m 99% sure I’d have given up on my current WIP before I even typed up a single word if it weren’t for her tips, so I’m really interested to read her novel. I already have it, just gotta get around to the reading part.
8. Queen of Someday (Stolen Empire Book 1) by Sherry D. Ficklin
Is that not the most GORGEOUS cover you’ve ever seen?!?! And the other two books are black and red which are the best colors ever! I don’t remember what they’re about, but I don’t even care and am just going to read them all anyway! And I can’t stop using exclamation marks!
7. The Immortal Circus (Cirque des Immortels Book 1) by A.R. Kahler
Another book I stared at longingly for a while and finally bought this month but haven’t gotten a chance to read yet. Did I mention my love for circus books?
6. Dollhouse (The Dark Carousel Book 1) by Anya Allyn
I actually stumbled upon this series while looking for book covers for a different meme, and the covers are SO PRETTY that I have to have them. Luckily they sound like amazing, creepy, down-the-rabbit-hole-ish fantasy books. This one better not disappoint because I want to be able to own them all.
5. Flex (‘Mancer Book 1) by Ferrett Steinmetz
I saw a review for this book recently, and I DON’T THINK I’VE EVER WANTED A BOOK SO BADLY IN MY LIFE. A gritty fantasy book with screwed up characters in which people’s obsessions become their magic? This book just screams my name. I’m breaking my rule of no more starting series until they’re finished for this because I can’t wait for the whole series.
4. Lux (The Nocte Trilogy Book 3) by Courtney Cole
I have mixed feelings about this one because the series is just OK, but it’s so full of mystery and weird twists that I have to finish it because I have to know what’s actually going on. But the third book keeps getting pushed back, and now it’s being pushed back even more because of a novella, so even knows when it’ll actually come out…
3. Addict (Hunter: A Thieves Series Book 2) by Lexi Blake
So… this is that series I’m only reading because I’m in love with one particular side character from the original series who now happens to be one of two love interests of the new MC. Except he’s clearly not the one she prefers (though I can’t for the life of me understand why) and was hardly in the first book at all.
2. A Faerie’s Revenge (Creepy Hollow Book 5) by Rachel Morgan
This is a great, fun YA series, and the last book ended with a MAJOR and shocking cliffhanger, so I’m excited for this one.
1. Reap the Shadows (Steel & Stone Book 4) by Annette Marie
Ahhh, I always get so excited for books in this series! It immediately became one of my all-time favorites when I read the first book. I know that not many people have read this series, BUT YOU SHOULD. Seriously, you all like YA fantasy with kickass females and sexy supernatural men and BEAUTIFUL writing and action-packed plots, right? SO GO READ IT!
