Top Ten Books on Daisy's Fall TBR List!


Guys, it's that time again: the time to get excited about the books you'll be reading next season! And more particularly: what books you're most excited about that have made it on your Fall TBR list!

As usual, I've picked the books that I'm dying to read that will be released between September 22nd and December 20th 2012 (AKA the books that I will be getting with birthday gift cards!)

1. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes: It sounds like EPIC fantasy!! And I love me some of that :) Also, I have some serious cover love going on for this one, it's just gorgeous!

2. Sacrifice by Cayla Kluver: Guys, I LOVED the first two books in the series, Legacy and Allegiance and I cannot wait to see what happens next! I'm kinda hoping for a happy ending. The characters have grown so much already, it's just wonderful.

3. Black City by Elizabeth Richards: It's a post-apocalyptic lovestory with what sounds like paranormal elements and I am down for that ANY TIME.

4. A Notorious Countess Confesses by Julie Anne Long: Yay historical romance! The seventh book in the Pennyroyal Green series, I loved both the 5th and 6th book. Julie Anne Long makes me cry and I love it!

5. The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima: DYING to read this book! It seems like forever since I finished The Gray Wolf Throne and I just need the last instalment RIGHT NOW! Epic YA fantasy! Side note: the boyfriend (who doesn't read much) is also dying to read it :)

6. Eve and Adam by Katherine Applegate: I have been a bit hesitant about dystopian novels lately, but this one sounds like a winner!

7. Venom by Fiona Paul: SECRET SOCIETIES!! In VENICE! How could I not highly anticipate this release??

8. Crewel by Gennifer Albin: I've heard nothing but good things from people who have already read it! It sounds like just my kind of book!

9. Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson: A girl who discovers she has a place among ancient mythological warriors. Uhm, HELL YES!

10. A Fractured Light by Jocelyn Davies: I REALLY liked A Beautiful Dark and the cliffhanger ending left me going NOOOOO! So yes, I would kind of like this book to be here soon, pretty please?

Honorable mentions go to The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken, Mystic City by Theo Lawrence and Breathe by Sarah Crossan.




So that's my list, what about you? Any we share? Books I missed that should have made the list?

  5. Great Top Ten Daisy! I can't wait for Sacrifice, though I still need to read Allegiance. I hadn't heard of a couple of these so I will definitely be checking more into those. =)This is my first time taking part in TTT & it was hard narrowing it down to just 10!

    1. Allegiance was SO GOOD! Even better than Legacy! I even went from disliking to loving a character in Allegiance, but I won't say who it is cause of spoilers :) Go read it! ;)
      Hope you had fun your first time participating!

  6. Great list! I'm about to start reading A Beautiful Dark :) There are a few there that weren't on my list, but I'm definitely looking forward to!

    1. Yay! I really liked A Beautiful Dark, though sometimes I wish I would have waited a bit before reading it, cause I had to wait a WHOLE YEAR for the sequel and not knowing what'll happen next is killing me! But in a good way :)

      Delete
  7. We have several of the same books! I'm also looking forward to Falling Kingdoms, although I didn't put that one on my list. (I was doing the "Fall" thing literally, so stayed away from December releases.) And I can't believe I forgot about Venom! That's one I've been wanting to read for ages.

    1. Aww, don't be embarassed! It's my obsessive internet bookish activity that leads to an overflowing TBR list and knowing of these books ;)

  24. There seems to be a theme among your picks! I thought about going with new releases, but realized I might as well list books I know I'm planning to read. Beautiful covers!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha, I know ;) I was seeing the theme as well while making the list!
      I'm a horrible planner and if I didn't limit myself to new releases, I don't think I'd ever be able to make a list, cause there are so many books in general I want to read!

  25. I'm also really looking forward to reading Crewel. I thought it sounded amazing from the first time I read the blurb.

  54. I tend toward nonfiction during the school year, but I have a few fiction titles on my list for fall. None that are in the OP, but then there's nothing wrong with adding a few more to the stack. I'm an optimist.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I participate in several reading groups so half of my list are books scheduled for one of them. My reading is tilted toward fiction with a surprising (to me as I prepared the list) emphasis on historical fiction. I look forward to perusing some of the many lists submitted.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am SO, SO excited for Sacrifice. I can't shake the feeling that it's going to be EPIC!

    ReplyDelete
  57. May not have posted until today, but I wrote it yesterday! I still haven't finished my summer list...

    ReplyDelete
  58. Wow, great list! I need to look up some of these. :) I'm waiting on Valkyrie Rising too, it sounds amazing! And I still need to read A Beautiful Dark....Oops.
