Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Fall TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish! You can join the fun too by hopping over to the site and checking out their post!

Blog Update: I just added a Best Books of 2011 tab at the top of the blog. It features my fave books of 2011 so far!

Phew- this was a hard list to compile. There are a ridiculous number of books I’m dying to read this fall. The books I’ve listed below are just a few:

1Inheritance by Christopher Paolini- I’ve been waiting for a conclusion to this series since I started reading it in high school (that was 6 years ago…). I’m so excited to see how Paolini is going to wrap up this great series.

2The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa- Although I still need to read The Iron Queen, I can’t wait to read this book! It’s taunting me from my NetGalley as we speak…

3Blood Spirits by Sherwood Smith- I read and adored Coronets and Steel by Smith and was left with a truly painful cliffhanger. I’m dying to get my hands on this book! If you love romantic fantasy-lite books with a sprinkling of history, this is your series.

4Legend by Marie Lu- I apparently cannot not rest until I’ve read every dystopian novel published this year. It does sound really, really good, and I just can’t help myself!

5Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- This book sounds so unique. I don’t say this often, but I have a really strong feeling its going to book love at first sight!

6The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater- This book seems like selkies meet The Hunger Games. And, I’m not complainin’.

7The Pledge by Kimberly Derting- So dark…literally. The cover is of a girl in a black velvet hoodie on a black background. I love the combo of a caste-type society mixed with rebel causes.

8A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies- I’m willing to take a calculated risk with angels again in this book. The premise really got me!

9The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson- Despite a cover redesign that I don’t like at all, I’m still super excited about this princess/politics-type novel.

10Crave by Melissa Darnell- I love the cover of this book, and its interesting spin on vampires and supernatural powers.

    I want to read a lot of the books on your list too. Sadly, they don’t make it for this year, though. :(

    I loved Sherwood Smith’s Crown and Court Duel! So Coronet and Steel are another addition to my TBR list :) I didn’t even know about it, glad to see it on your list!
    I have the Girl of Fire and Thorns coming up soonish, it sounds SO GOOD!
    Thanks for stopping by @ the Broke and the Bookish!

      I really, really liked Coronets and Steel! I think it’s some of Smith’s best work, so I hope you enjoy it!! :) And, yes, The Girl of Fire and Thorns sounds a-mazing!!!! :)

    Almost all these books are on my TBR list as well. I have a crazy amount of books that I want to finish by the end on this year and I just don’t see how I can since I can’t finish more than 2 books a week. I also told myself I would not request anything else from NetGalley until I got through at least half of what I have waiting for me there now. I requested Blood Rights yesterday. I have no self control…..
