Top Ten Tuesday topic is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is ” Top Ten Books On My Fall 2013 TBR List,” which I’m splitting into two sub-categories, the top 5 books I plan to read this fall (and probably beyond) and the top 5 fall releases I am most excited about. Both lists are in no particular order.
Top Five Books On My Fall 2013 TBR List
1. Ender’s Shadow by Orson Scott Card
I still really want to read this before the Ender’s Game movie comes out. I still need to borrow a copy from my friend. (*Waves to Graham if he’s reading this*)
The rest of these books I believe I will be acquiring for my birthday! Yay!
2. The 5th Wave by Ricky Yancey
3. There You’ll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones
4. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions about Writing and Life by Anne Lamott
5. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
My Top Five Fall Releases
Most of these books I probably won’t read until winter or possibly even later, but I’m still excited about their release!
1. Once We Were by Kat Zhang, Coming Today! (September 17)
I’m actually already halfway through this one, since I got to buy it early at an event where Kat Zhang was present, but I was not sure how excited I would be to read this until I read What’s Left of Me right before, and thankfully I enjoyed her first book and was excited to read this one, especially without a wait! I’m sure I’m going to hate having to wait for the last book though!
2. Allegiant by Veronica Roth, Coming October 22
I’m sure I’ll wait to read this one until it’s available for me to download as an e-book through my library, as I did with the previous two books, but I’m excited for its release and to finally get answers to all the questions I’ve had since the first book! Roth has also said that Caleb develops a lot in the book, and since I like him, I’m intrigued!
3. The Transfer: A Divergent Story by Veronica Roth, Published September 3
This one is already out and should be easy to find and quick to read so… basically I just need to get around to reading it. And Free Four.
4. Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund, Coming October 15
I really enjoyed For Darkness Shows the Stars so I am looking forward to this follow-up in the same universe! I’ll probably ask for this one for Christmas.
5. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson, Coming September 24
I haven’t read any Brandon Sanderson yet, but after listening to him on the Writing Excuses podcast and hearing really good things about his YA books, I believe I will have to remedy this soon.
What books are you excited about reading this fall? What releases are you most excited for?
