Top Ten Books Daisy Has On Her TBR List This Fall


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.


This could also have been called: Books on Daisy's Birthday Wishlist, since the beginning of fall and my birthday kinda coincide :) (seriously, it's true, Wikipedia says so!)

Since I spend a pretty sizeable amount of time lusting after up and coming releases, this should be a breeze! Well actually, it would be, if there weren't too many of them... These will all be released between September 23rd and December 23rd 2011 :)

1. A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies: I've been pining for this book for ages and I have some serious cover love for this one. I'm a girl-in-gorgeous-dress-cover-slut, can't help it :)

2. Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder: I have read and loved every single one of the author's books and am dying to read this one, I'm sure I'll love it as well. It's the first in her new series. I love her series.

3. Inheritance by Christopher Paolini: a little bit before the release of Brisingr it was announced that there would be a fourth book in this series and the wait for this one has nearly killed me, cause I NEED to know how it ends! I've been waiting for 3 freaking years already! (checked it: Brisingr came out in 2008)

4. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi: another gorgeous cover! And a girl with a fatal touch! COUNT ME IN! I've heard nothing but good things from those who were lucky enough to get and ARC of this book, so I'm kinda excited about it being released soonish!

5. Eve by Anna Carey: this sounds like another wonderful dystopian and I'm kinda still in love with the genre.

6. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: I'm kinda expecting this to turn up on a LOT of the lists, but I'm gonna add it anyway. I haven't read Anna and the French Kiss yet and I'll probably be the last one to do it if I start now, but I'm still excited for this one to come out. I've heard such amazing this about these 2 books that I can't help but jump on the wagon and get excited as well. I really should start reading Anna...

7. The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen: another girl-in-a-dress on the cover and I'm loving it :) It sounds like it should be an amazing story and I hope it will be!

8. Don't Expect Magic by Kathy McCullough: a MALE fairy godmother! Fairy godmotherness being genetic! WOOHOO! Seriously, this sounds like it's right up my alley! And I LOVE the cover!

9. Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs: I'm a greek mythology geek, it's true. I'm loving this trend in YA and this one has three teenage descendants of MEDUSA! How cool is that? I NEED this book!

10. Crave by Melissa Darnell: a girl half vampire, half powerful magic use, could be EPIC WIN! Excited to read this one soonish :)

So, that's my list, it was harder than I thought, so many books, only 10 spots on the list...
What let me know what's on your lists! Any should add to my already too-huge TBR list? (seriously, any bigger and it will start demanding the right to vote in the next elections as well..)

  4. READ. ANNA! Seriously, Daisy! You can't just leave such an amazing book on the shelf! I'd read it again in a heartbeat. It's my new favorite, and I can't wait for Lola!

    You've got a lot of good looking books on your list!

  5. I'm so looking forward to Sweet Venom too - Greek mythology done interestingly is always fun!

    I did all not-yet-released books too. Waiting's so hard!

  10. I am frustrated about Christopher Paolini taking so much time to publish INHERTANCE as well! I'm going to be in tears when I get that book...

  11. I'm looking forward to reading Lola and the Boy Next Door as well as Shatter Me. You're right, this list was hard. I even cheated on my half and combined a couple of titles that were the same author.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Coming up with this week's list (great topic, btw) made me realize how much reading I have to do! So many titles and series out there that I want to get to. Sigh. Too little time.

    ReplyDelete

  15. Sweet Venom and Don't Expect Magic sound awesome, to be honest. This is completely different to my list, but I think I'll be picking up a few from yours as well!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love your list and you were right I had to include Perkins' new book on my list as I adored Anna and the French Kiss that I would read anything Stephanie writes.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Save for Paolini I haven't heard of any of the other writers. It all sounds interesting though.:D I've had Brisngr sitting on shelf for nearly two years without being read. I think I need to re-read the first two books before I can read it, and then maybe get myself Inheritance soon before I forget everything again!!

    Happy Fall REading!:)

  18. I'm gonna try and look at all your no doubt wonderful lists when I get home from work! Or at least as many as I can, since the last TTT had 145 entries and well, I'm only one person...
    Thanks for all your lovely comments!

    Jana - I KNOW! It's a crime against all of book-loving humanity that I haven't read it yet... *hides in shame behind ENORMOUS pile of TBR books*

    Anne Bennett - November 8th according to Goodreads, can't wait!

  49. Wow, has it really been that long since Brisingr? Couldn't remember the year, just that I stopped at Borders on the way to my nephew's soccer game to get it. But Inheritance is on my list too.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love your list. I just finished CRAVE and it's one of the best paranormal romances I've read this year. It's fabulous! I definitely recommend pre-ordering it.

    ReplyDelete
  51. wow, it's been three years since Brisingr came out?! That fourth book needs to hurry up and get published already!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I've got a lot of these on my radar too! I hadn't heard that Snyder had a new book coming out though, SQUEEE!!!!
