All The Books I Can Read

1 girl….2 many books!

Top 10 Tuesday September 22nd

on September 22, 2020

Hello and welcome back to another edition of Top 10 Tuesday! Originally created and hosted by The Broke & the Bookish, Top 10 Tuesday now lives with Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. It features a different literary themed topic each week and this week we are talking….

Top 10 Books On My Fall Spring Reading List

Spring officially started on September 1st in Australia, although where I live often doesn’t get the memo until much later. It’s also a very popular time for books to be published so there are often loads of exciting releases. Here are 10 I’m hoping to get to pretty soon….

1. A Promised Land by Barack Obama

The publishing date for this was announced just last week and will be (worldwide) on November 17. I pretty much never bother to pre-order books, but I have pre-ordered this. I feel like I’ve been waiting for an Obama presidential memoir for quite a while. This is part 1 in what I think will be a 2 part story and I am super, super excited for this.

2. The Godmothers by Monica McInerney. 

Monica McInerney is a popular Australian author who now resides most of the time in Ireland. I’ve read quite a lot of her books and this one is also the choice for my online bookclub in December but it’s published next month so I’ll probably be reading it for then.

3. Blood & Honey by Shelby Mahurin.

I borrowed this through my local library’s eBook lending service and had to wait in queue and it just appeared in my account the other day so I’ll be reading this in the next 14 days before it expires!

4. Return To Virgin River by Robyn Carr.

I got a copy of this from the US publisher. I remember binging a lot of this series quite a few years ago now (although I still have not watched the Netflix series!). So I’m interested to see what it’ll be like to return. Might have to go and read all my reviews of previous novels so I remember who everyone is!

5. The Invisible Life Of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

I’ve read a few of V.E. Schwab’s books before and this sounds incredibly interesting – a woman who trades her soul for immortality but the catch is everyone she meets is destined to forget her. After 300 years, Addie meets someone who actually remembers her. This sounds really interesting and I love the cover too.

6. Mind The Gap, Dash & Lily by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

I just received a copy of this on the weekend from the Australian publisher and it’s out next month so it makes its way onto my list. I really adored Dash & Lily’s Book Of Dares and although there’s been another book, I haven’t read that one, but I don’t think it’ll matter too much.

7. Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell

This just won the Women’s Prize for Fiction and I’ve heard a few friends/bloggers with whose tastes I often aline pretty closely with, say really excellent things about this so I’m quite curious.

8. My Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I’m not American but it’s impossible not to be aware of the impact of ‘RBG’ and with her unfortunate passing recently it seems like a really good time to learn more.

9. The Living Sea Of Waking Dreams by Richard Flangan

Richard Flanagan is an Australian author who won a Man Booker prize for his previous novel, The Narrow Road to the Deep North. He’s also won a swag of Australian literary awards as well so I’m looking forward to this one.

10. Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline

It’s been a long time since I read Ready Player One but I found it really entertaining. So I’m curious to see what this is like!

These are just 10 of the books I’m looking forward to reading over the next few months. I have more but I tried not to double up on books from my Most Anticipated Releases For the Second Half Of 2020 post, which I did just a couple of months ago.

What are you looking forward to this season?

  1. I am SO excited for Addie LaRue, I’m sure it’ll live up to all the hype!
    Here’s my Fall TBR if you’d like to give it a look!

  2. Hamnet is SO good I do hope you find time to read it and that you love it! This is my list of ten of Autumn’s TBR pile!

  3. nbiblioholic says:

    A few of these are on my tbr lists as well. I hope we love them as much as I think we will. Happy reading! Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post.

  4. I’ll definitely be reading Obama’s memoir!

  5. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is the next book on my to-read list! Although I haven’t read the book, I did see the Ready Player One movie and both the original and its sequel both look interesting.

    • I have been meaning to watch the movie of RPO for so long, except it was rental only on my cable/satellite tv and I was waiting for it to move to the actual movie channels. Then I forgot about it. That might be something to do before I read RPT!

      Ooh you’ll have to let me know how you find Addie LaRue.

  6. I’m really curious for Ready Player Two too! I hope it’s better than Armada because that one was… 😬 And I can’t wait for VE Schwab’s next book 😀

  7. Blood & Honey has made it onto my list too. I’m excited about it. Thanks for the post.

    I have some of the Virgin River books on my TBR for Autumn, I didn’t even realise was a book until I watched the Netflix series. The Netflix adaptation is brilliant I finished the series in two days… ooops

  9. Marg says:

    We have some books in common! I didn’t think about checking back to my previous post. Oh well…double ups for the win!

  10. lydiaschoch says:

  11. I’m really looking forward to reading The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue! I hope we both enjoy it 😊 I also just finished reading Blood & Honey and it was an enjoyable sequel!

    Here’s my Fall TBR!. Happy reading!

  12. Addie LaRue was on my list this week too! I definitely want to check out Obama’s memoir as well, should be pretty interesting.

  13. How did I forget Obama’s book? I want to read that one, too. I hope you love all of these.

  14. I’m not familiar with Monica McInerney, but I’m definitely adding The Godmothers to my own pile. She sounds like exactly the kind of author I’d love, so thank you for bringing her to my attention!
