All The Books I Can Read

1 girl….2 many books!

Top 10 Tuesday 21st September

on September 21, 2021

Hi everyone and welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday! Originally created by The Broke & the Bookish, Top 10 Tuesday is now hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl and features a different book or literature themed topic each week. This week we are talking:

Books On My Fall Spring TBR List

It’s finally spring here in Australia! Actually it’s technically been spring here for 3 weeks as we change seasons on the first, and we have already had a couple of glorious days here in Melbourne (as well as some that remind us winter isn’t quite done with us yet).

Before I start with this new list, I always like to take a look at my previous seasonal TBR and look at how many I read from that – this time I only read 5. So not the best strike rate – some of the books I am waiting for at my local library, which has been closed for returns while we’re in lockdown, so if you’re in line for a book someone has checked out, you won’t be getting it until the library reopens and everyone can return their books. Others I intended to buy and just didn’t get around it it because bookshops aren’t open and I need to make sure I get the correct edition that matches my others in a series and not any random one they send me!

Dark Rise by C.S. Pacat

This is my next read and actually, by the time this post goes up I may have already finished it as I need to post a review of it on the 28th. I’m quite excited to read this – I loved C.S. Pacat’s Captive Prince series, way more than I ever expected to when I first started reading it. This should be hopefully, just as addictive.

The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

One of my most anticipated books – the eBook is out but I’m waiting for the print, which for some reason is not available to me until October. But this sounds like something written exactly to my specifications so I really hope that I love this as much as it seems like I will.

The Eye Of The World by Robert Jordan

Okay, this one might be a little ambitious, given it’s what? 800+ pages? But I’d like to give it a go. When I was about 14/15 I got quite into epic fantasy, David Eddings and the like. My school library had this series, but every time I was browsing, I could never find book 1. It always seemed to be checked out. Then I forgot about it but now this is going to be a TV show and I’d like to read the book before I watch it. And maybe I’ll be able to rediscover my love of those epic chunky fat tomes.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

I saw someone talking about this series recently and I ended up getting the first one from my library (they have a delivery service at the moment, for books you request). I’m looking forward to this, it seems like something I’ll enjoy.

The Silence Of Scheherazade by Defne Suman

I saw this on instagram I think and the cover caught my eye immediately. I ordered it a couple days later and it’s definitely going into my spring TBR. It starts in 1905 in the city of Smyrna and follows the fates of four families. This looks stunning.

Sadie by Courtney Summers

This is my audiobook. I’ve heard really great things about how good the audio is of this one and picked it up recently to listen to over the next little while. I don’t listen to audiobooks very often but it’s something I’ve been trying to increase a little more – I have to pick them carefully though. I’m hoping this one holds my attention!

The Younger Wife by Sally Hepworth

I’ve really enjoyed all of Sally Hepworth’s previous books and I love the sound of this one! It’s out next month – I don’t love this cover (it’s the Australian publisher’s cover) and prefer the American one though. I think it looks much better.

The Vanished Days by Susanna Kearsley

I love Susanna Kearsley’s books and it feels like a few years since I last read one! I just snagged a copy of this (thanks to the publisher, Sourcebooks, via NetGalley) and it’s out in just under 2wks so I will definitely be getting to this one pretty soon. This is also connected to books I’ve previously read (a while ago now though!) so that should be fun!

The Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley

Have heard some amazing things about this book and it’s also one I currently have checked out from my local library. Very keen to read a book depicting representation of Native Americans and their customs etc but in a contemporary setting, with a mystery. Hoping I love this!

Atomic Habits by James Clear

I’ve been growing my little collection of non-fiction recently and trying to read more of it and I’ve heard some really excellent things about this. I definitely have some good habits I want to build and some bad ones that I’d like to move away from! Quite interested to see if I find this helpful – as a rule, I’m not really much of a self-help book person but I’m curious about this.

And there we are!

10 of the books I am hoping to read this season…..let’s see how I do!

If you’ve read any of these (or would like to) please let me know in the comments.

    I also have The Eye of the World on my list! I didn’t add The Love Hypothesis but I’m hoping to read it soon. I heard great things about it. I read Sadie and it was good, and a great pick for your audiobook, it was very well done.

  2. Anne Bennett says:

    SADIE is so moving. Good luck with your list. My fall reading list

  3. The Firekeep’s Daughter is a book I keep seeing everywhere so I’m starting to take it as a sign that I need a copy in my life. Happy reding!
    My Autumn TBR.

  4. Ellie Warren says:

    The Love Hypothesis looks cute! The audiobook if Sadie is definitely worth it, one of the few cases where it adds to the story.

    • I’m so keen for The Love Hypothesis! And everyone keeps telling me how amazing the audio of Sadie is – I’m not the biggest audiobook fan because I can read faster (my exception is mostly David Attenborough books!) but everyone keeps saying how wonderful this one is and that it really does add a wonderful element to the story.

  5. masterspj says:

    A great list! Even though Firekeeper’s Daughter is a big book, I devoured it! I’m on a waitlist at my library for the audio version of Sadie.

    When you get the opportunity, I hope you can stop by my post: https://readbakecreate.com/autumn-2021-tbr-10-books-i-hope-to-read/

  6. I just finished Firekeeper’s Daughter this weekend and…wow! I hope you love it like I did.

  7. I want to read Atomic Habits. I’ve heard great things about it.

    I want to read The Love Hypothesis, too!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  9. I have a copy of Three Dark Crowns. I might try to make it work for a challenge prompt in the fall. The Love Hypothesis looks so cute. Here is my post-https://paigesofbook.blogspot.com/2021/09/top-ten-tuesday-fall-tbr.html.

  10. Cindy Davis says:

    I am so sorry your library is still shut down!! That is so hard. I hope you are able to read all the ones you want to!

    • Yes, it’s a bit of a pain – they’ll deliver books you request if they’re available but none of the return slots are open so we’re all keeping our library books for a VERY long time haha. Hopefully they’ll be open soon. Our government wants to reopen pretty much everything when vaccination rates hit a certain target I think

  11. Lori says:

    I’ve seen The Love Hypothesis on so many lists today! I need to check it out.

    Here’s my list—https://fiftytwo.blog/2021/09/21/ttt-ten-books-im-looking-forward-to-this-fall/

    Happy TTT!

  12. Adira says:

    I really enjoyed The Firekeeper’s Daughter. I got to interview Angeline Boulley and loved the backstory and rich history she put into her novel. I hope you enjoy the book too! The Silence Of Scheherazade also sounds good.

    Here is my Fall TBR post:

    My Favorite 2021 Emmy Outfits as Books – #BookishMemes 

  13. Changing seasons on the first makes so much more sense, I always think of it as the new season on the 1st of the month anyway, even if it’s not technically until later here in the UK! I’ve heard really good things about the Sadie audio too, so I hope you enjoy it.
