Top 10 Tuesday 18th September

on September 18, 2018

It’s time for another Top 10 Tuesday. Originally created and hosted by The Broke & the Bookish, Top 10 Tuesday now has a new home with Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week our topic is……

Top Books On My Fall Spring TBR

I’m Australian, so we are (finally!) heading out of winter and into some warmer weather for spring and I am so excited for it. Even though it’s a bit of a late spring here (it doesn’t really warm up until October/November) I’m definitely over the cold weather and I’ll take any sun I can get.

  1. The Peacock Summer by Hannah Richell. This will probably be my next read. I’ve been wanting to read it for a while but I was in a queue from my local library and it only just came in. I’ve liked her previous books and I’ve heard lots and lots of amazing things about this one from fellow bloggers and readers.
  2. Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty. Probably going to break my book buying ban for this one – I’ve read almost all of her previous books and she just keeps getting better with each one. This one should be hugely successful as well, especially coming off the back of the Big Little Lies mini series.
  3. Kingdom Of Ash by Sarah J. Maas. I still haven’t finished Tower Of Dawn yet. I started it just before I moved house and then never went back to it. To be honest I’m not super into that part of the story – I find Chaol incredibly boring and I really just want to get back to what’s happening with Aelin.
  4. Lethal White by ‘Robert Galbraith’. I’m so glad I actually haven’t been waiting too long for this, having just finished 2&3 in the Cormoran Strike series earlier this year. But the ending of 3 was so dramatic that I really can’t wait to see what happens next.
  5. An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris. I only just came across this when I was browsing upcoming releases but it sounds really interesting. An alternate history story, set after Franklin Roosevelt is assassinated. This sounds awesome and I’m definitely adding it to my wishlist.
  6. Becoming by Michelle Obama. Um, yes please.
  7. Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin. Might as well see what’s delaying the final A Song of Ice & Fire books and occupying George’s attention. This is a deadset brick, looking like being over 700p so might have to roll this one over into the summer TBR as well!
  8. A Very Large Expanse Of Sea by Tehereh Mafi. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the Shatter Me series but this is something completely different and I think it looks really interesting. It’s set in 2002, just after 9/11 and revolves around a 16yo Muslim girl living in that aftermath.  
  9. Fight Or Flight by Samantha Young. I just discovered this too and it looks exactly my sort of thing – a woman flying home is delayed by volcanic ash. She has a first class seat stolen by a Scotsman and then they have a whole different sort of layover. Seems fun and I do like a meet cute. Or a meet-loathe with chemistry. I’ll take either really *shrug*.
  10. Mr Nice Guy by Jennifer Miller & Jason Feifer. This is a he said/she said style written by a married couple about a guy sleeps with a sex columnist and discovers her column is about their disappointing encounter. He writes a rebuttal and the magazine publishes it and makes an arrangement between them – they’ll sleep together every week and each write about it.

I’m super excited about this list actually. But I am a good list-maker and then sometimes I end up going in a completely different direction. Hope you all have something to be excited about for your fall (or spring, for the Southern Hemisphere peeps) reads.

    ha! I haven’t read Tower of Dawn yet either but fully intend to before Kingdom of Ash of course. Soon, I hope. I have a ton of horror planned for October though so I’m not exactly sure when. haha

  2. #9 sounds pretty interesting, I’ll have to keep a lookout for that title 🙂 Happy reading!

    My TTT

  3. Rory says:

    I don’t like Chaol and find him boring, and I’m just generally hoping that I don’t need to read this one before Kingdom of Ash.

  4. ChrissiReads says:

    I haven’t read any of these! I hope you love them though.

  5. Greg says:

    Same here with fire and Blood. And I love Moriarty- can’t wait for nine Perfect strangers!

    • Same! I’ve already heard some reports on how good the Moriarty is so need to be getting it asap. Hopefully the Martin is good too (and goes somewhere and doesn’t just peter out after someone adapts it for tv…..)

  6. Shealea says:

    I haven’t tried reading Shatter Me, but I am excited for the author’s upcoming release. The premise is really fascinating. Great post!

  7. I had Sarah J Maas on my list too! Although I still need to read Throne of Glass oops

    My list:

  8. Happy Spring!

    I am hoping to read Kingdom of Ash at some point myself, but I still need to read Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn first. Those are on my fall TBR though.

  9. I felt the same at the start of Tower of Dawn! I really wanted to get back to all the action and.. not.. Chaol? At the end, I ended up loving the installment though. Hope you will too!

    • I was enjoying it when I was reading it (mostly the parts not about Chaol) I think just because I put it down and I’ve had so many other things, it’s gone on so long that I just get less and less enthused but I know once I actually pick it back up and start reading again, it’ll be fine.

  10. Kingdom of Ash is quite in hype these days, though personally, I haven’t read that series. I hope you enjoy all of these books 🙂

  11. Marg says:

    I was going to message you to see if you were rushing out to get the Moriarty!

  12. Janey says:

    We crossed over on two titles for this prompt – the new Cormoran Strike and Michelle Obama’s memoir. I can’t wait!

    Great list 🙂

  13. Lillian @ Mom With a Reading Problem says:

    Kingdom of Ash is on my TBR too. I still need to read Tower of Dawn as well. I haven’t even started it. Glad to know I’m not the only one uninterested in Chaol. I could really do without anymore of his story 😉

    Here’s my TTT.

    • Haha yes, welcome to my Bored With Chaol club! I’ve owned Tower of Dawn since it was released and still have not finished it. I need to just bite the bullet and finish it so that I know everything going into Kingdom of Ash.

      • Lillian @ Mom With a Reading Problem says:

        I did the same thing. I preordered it and it’s sat on my shelf since I finished Empire of Storms. I somehow didn’t realize before I got it that it was Chaol’s story 🤦🏼‍♀️ I guess we can suffer through it together before KoA 😂

  14. I keep seeing A Very Large Expanse of Sea on TTT lists this week. I hadn’t heard of it before today, but definitely have to check it out. I want to read Michelle Obama’s memoir, too. Here’s my TTT.

  15. Nine Perfect Strangers and Lethal White are on my TBR too!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  16. Excellent list! I’m trying to catch up with the Throne of Glass series! I also am super excited for A Very Large Expanse of Sea – it looks like a great read.

    I am doing a reread of pretty much all the TOG books before the final one comes out. I just did Tower of Dawn the other week and I realised I don’t remember enough details. I too had put off reading it because I didn’t really care about his storyline, and the book overall wasn’t enjoyable to me (I didn’t start liking it until page 466/664), and I hate to say it but you need to read it. We learn some very important things in this book and get loads of new characters so I feel like lots of it is going to come into play. You need to have read Assassins Blade before reading this one though. I hope you enjoy it more than I did!

  18. I’m hoping to finish the Song of Ice and Fire books before the end of the year. Then I’ll join the rest of the world in waiting for the next one. I hope you enjoy all these. Happy spring!

  19. […] of fun, I went and had a look at my Spring TBR post that I made 3 months ago, to see how many of the titles I’d read. The answer is 4 […]
