Top Ten Books On Your Fall TBR List


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

Ohai there! It's my first time to participate in Top Ten Tuesday. This week's topic is: Top Ten Books On Your Fall TBR

1. The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa - Dude. Iron Fey series? Ash, Meghan and Puck? AND now with Ethan? Release it now! On second thought, I actually have an e-arc so no more waiting needed for me. ;)

2. Quintana of Charyn by Melina Marchetta - I liked the first book in the Lumatere Chronicles, Finnikin of the Rock, but the second book, Froi of Exiles, I loooooved so much. Which reminds me *looks at drafts* I haven't finished my review of the first two books and they've been sitting there since June. Heh. The ending of Froi of the Exiles was an evil cliffhanger, so I'm really excited to read this. 

3. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor - Akiva... Kaoru... and all those other weird but enticing creatures. I honestly can't remember all the happenings in the first book, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I distinctly remember loving the plot as well as the characters so much.

4. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater - I love Maggie's writing. The Wolves of Mercy Falls and The Scorpio Races were one of the better books I've read. I was just a little bummed by the ending of Forever, but her writing is incredible.

5. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes & Michelle Rowen - "In a land where magic has been forgotten but peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering. Three kingdoms grapple for power—brutally transforming their subjects’ lives in the process. Amidst betrayals, bargains, and battles, four young people find their fates forever intertwined" My gosh, can't that get anymore awesome? This looks like a total badass historical adventure YA.

6. Trapped by Kevin Hearne - If you've been hanging out around my blog for a while now, you'd know how much I love the books in The Iron Druid Chronicles. It's full of kickassery and badassery and hilarious characters and awesome mythologies!

7. Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin - I loved Ashfall and I can't wait to know more about Alex and what happened to his parents.

8. Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace - So, the name of the male protag is Loki Blackstar. I don't know him yet but his name alone already oozes with badass. I keep pitcuring him as some samurai-sh ninja. Anywhow, this is somewhat a retelling of Snow White with a little Anna Dressed in Black tone to it. How exciting is that?

9. Dark Seeker by Taryn Browning - This is the first book in the Seeker series. After reading so many YA with male MC's, I missed reading females MC's that can kick ass.

10. Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson - "What Ellie doesn’t anticipate is Graham’s infuriating best friend, Tuck, tagging along for the trip." - Yes, yes I'll read you. I think I'm going to love Elle and Tuck here. XD

  5. I AM SO SO SO SO EXCITED for most of the books:

    1. The Lost Prince
    SQUEEEEEE! New series from Julie Kagawa set in the same world of the Iron Fery series? COUNT ME IN. Can't wait to meet Ethan!

    2. Quintana of Charyn
    GAH, what is wrong with me? I really need to get a start on this series soon since I love Melina Marchetta's books, particularly On the Jellicoe Road!

    3. Days of Blood and Starlight
    ME DESPERATE FOR THIS BOOK! After that cliffhanger ending in Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I NEED THE SEQUEL SO BADLY! I want to know what is going to happen to Akiva and Karou!

    4. The Raven Boys
    Maggie Stiefvater is definitely one of my alltime favourite authors. Her writing is so beautiful, breath-taking and I loved all her books so I really can't wait for her newest series!

    5. Falling Kingdoms
    Michelle Rowen! I've only read her YA paranormal 'Dark Kiss' but she's writing a fantasy book under a pen name? THAT IS SO COOL! Super duper can't wait for it!

    Awesome list, Chel! ;) ♥

  6. I can't wait to read Valkyrie Rising and Snow White Sorrow either. I was excited about Falling Kingdoms but I've seen quite a few negative reviews for it so I may just wait for you to read it, Chel. I haven't heard of Dark Seeker so I'm off to Goodreads to check that out :)
