If you know me at all, you know I’m horrible at TBRs. Mainly because I’m like, “Oh my god, look at all the fall releases. Must read them now!” and then proceed to request them all from my local library. 🤣 But the thing is, I have so many unread books on my shelves (but then again, what bookworm doesn’t?), and so a while back I made a TBR Jar, which is nothing more than a mason jar I filled with rolled slips of paper of all the unread books on my own shelves. Well, that’s been going semi-well.
Since I started it, I’ve actually managed to read books and get rid of the ones I don’t like (either by selling them or giving them away via my Twitter). That’s a miracle and of itself, I tell you, lol. 😛 So the books mentioned here aren’t necessarily ~fall~ themed but rather, just books I’m really need to read. Screw the TBR Jar, I suppose?!
Top Ten Tuesday a weekly blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. You can check out the topics here.
Bonus! All but one if these books is currently on my bookshelves as I’m typing this up. 😛
Okay, so it is wholly possible that these books have been mentioned before on any topic relating to a TBR. But seriously. I need to read these books! I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about both of them, and I feel like I’m doing myself a serious disservice by not reading them. Shadowsong, the sequel to Wintersong, releases just a couple months into 2018, so that should be motivation, right?
Don’t even tell me how much I need to read this series, because seriously, I already know. XD I guess I’m fairly hesitant because The Mortal Instruments wasn’t my favorite, though I’m in love with The Infernal Devices trilogy. I hope to love The Dark Artifices. I’m not a die-hard Cassie Clare fan, but I do enjoy her writing and the Shadowhunter novels. I watched the first episode of the TV show and couldn’t stand it so…yeah. 🙂
I bought these a bit on whim. Though I’d heard some things about them on bookstagram and book Twitter, I wasn’t too sure about them. But it takes place during WWI Russia, so just slightly after Imperial Russia. Anyway, I’ve heard good things about them, so I look forward to reading them, especially since they aren’t YA, which is definitely my go-to genre.
I’ve heard excellent things about both these novels. I received Daughter of the Burning City in July’s Unicorn Crate. Rebel Seoul released last week, and is a diverse sci-fi YA novel, reminiscent of Pacific Rim and K-dramas. Hello, I’m all over that! 🙂 I’m hoping my library will get a copy, or else I’ll have to buy it (which, of course, isn’t a bad thing but when you’re tight on money… Well, it can be hard).
Well, what can I say about Caraval? I’ve heard good things, but I’ve also read some mixed reviews. I figured I’d come to a decision about the book soon anyway. 😛 Into the Dim‘s sequel, Sparks of Light, released not too long ago, and normally that motivates me to read a series just in case it’s too good to even wait for the sequel, lol.
All right. So now I just realized that I’ve laid out my entire fall TBR. Someone save me!
