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!)
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!
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!
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?
We don't have any books in common on our lists, but there are still a bunch of yours that are on my to-read list for fall! I had a hard time narrowing my list down to just ten. :)ReplyDelete
Me too! There are always so many amazing sounding new releases!Delete
Great list Daisy! I agree, the cover for Falling Kingdoms looks amazing!ReplyDelete
- Li @ rulethewaves.net
Thanks! And I know! Isn't it pretty?? It'll look so good on my shelves... :)Delete
Falling Kingdoms & Eve and Adam are on my fall wishlist! I love visiting different worlds.ReplyDelete
Me too :) I love how books can transport you to a place you never new existed before! And I love that in fantasy anything is possible!Delete
Great list!! Eve & Adam, and Venom I definitely want to check out.. I've been seeing Crewel on a lot of people's book hauls lately but don't actually know what it's about.. beautiful cover tho! :)ReplyDelete
Michele | Top 10
I can only inadequately explain it (I'm really bad at summarizing books), but here's the Goodreads link:Delete
And yes, the cover is gorgeous! :)
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!ReplyDelete
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! ;)Delete
Hope you had fun your first time participating!
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!ReplyDelete
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
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.ReplyDelete
Yay for Falling Kingdoms and Venom! I'm so excited for both of those!Delete
Venom is so so so so good! One of my favorite reads this year! I hope you will like it too. I also had Black City on my list, and your honorable mention, Breathe. Great list! :)ReplyDelete
I'm so jealous you've already read it!! I can't wait till it gets here :)Delete
I've heard that Crewel is great, as well. I've been meaning to read A Beautiful Dark. Maybe I'll pick it up soon!ReplyDelete
I hope you do! I really liked it :) And I'm dying to read Crewel, it sounds like it'll be just my kind of book :)Delete
Great list! You've reminded me of a few that didn't make my list - Falling Kingdoms and Crewel. Both look fantastic!ReplyDelete
Thanks! :) Yay for discovering new books!Delete
Eve and Adam is on my list, I love Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant. The others I am going to have to look into more!ReplyDelete
I have never read anything by them before, but I'm hearing all sorts of good things :)Delete
I am so embarrassed, I've never heard of any of these books! But Eve and Adam sounds great, you had me at "dystopian"! Thanks for doing this list prompt this week, it forced me to pare down my immediate "to-read" list :)ReplyDelete
Aww, don't be embarassed! It's my obsessive internet bookish activity that leads to an overflowing TBR list and knowing of these books ;)Delete
Love your list! We have Crewel in common and I see several others on your list that I want to read too. Especially Black City and Venom. Hope you enjoy all of these when you get the chance to read them :)ReplyDelete
Thank you! I hope you do as well! There are so many shiny new releases this fall, I don't know how I will decide what to read first... :)Delete
Great list! I'm really looking forward to Falling Kingdoms and Venom as well! :DReplyDelete
Thanks! Venom and Falling Kingdoms seem to be popular! I hope they live up to the hype :)Delete
Sacrifice made it onto my list as well. I am soooooo excited for that book!!! Eve and Adam almost made it onto my list as well.ReplyDelete
ME TOO!! I was in such a reading slump and then I read Allegiance and it was SO GOOD!Delete
I'm also looking forward to Falling Kingdoms and Valkyrie Rising! Both sound epic!ReplyDelete
I know! :) I love fantasy and mythological creatures :DDelete
Ooooh! I haven't heard of Falling Kingdoms but I may have to check that out!ReplyDelete
You should!! It sounds epic! :)Delete
These look great! I just won Eve and Adam in a giveaway and I can't wait to read it. I also have Valkyrie Rising on my list.ReplyDelete
Lucky you! :) Hope you enjoy both!!Delete
Ooh, you have excellent taste in books. I have heard of none of these and now want to read them all.ReplyDelete
Thank you :) I hope you enjoy the ones you end up reading!Delete
I can't wait to read Falling Kingdoms! I hope it lives up to that cover. :)ReplyDelete
Me too! It would be so disappointing if it doesn't...Delete
Brilliant list Daisy, you've listed all the books I'd forgotten about like Crewel and Black City! There are so many releases this I can't wait to dive into! :)ReplyDelete
Thank you! And I know! There are so many ones that sound like they could be my next favourite book and I wish I could read them all RIGHT NOW!Delete
I have Venom on my list too! I am also looking forward to Falling Kingdoms, Crewel and Eve & Adam as well.ReplyDelete
Great list, Daisy!
Thanks! I'm looking forward to reading your reviews on them :)Delete
Hello! I think both Crewel and Vlakyrie Rising sound like interesting reads! I havent read any on your list but I've heard good things about some of them. I hope you get time to read them all :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! Crewel and Valkyrie are both books I've been pining after for a while now, I hope they live up to the interesting premise! :)Delete
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
Haha, I know ;) I was seeing the theme as well while making the list!Delete
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!
I'm also really looking forward to reading Crewel. I thought it sounded amazing from the first time I read the blurb.ReplyDelete
Me too! It sounds SO GOOD!Delete
Your Fall TBR list looks awesome. I too am most excited about Falling Kingdoms. I forgot all about Venom.ReplyDelete
Thanks! :) Falling Kingdoms is highest on my wishlist, I'm SO pre-ordering it soon :)Delete
Great list! Beautiful covers, too! :D Happy Tuesday!ReplyDelete
Thanks! :) Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday as well!Delete
Wow, I haven't even heard of most of yours! They are intriguing, though . . .ReplyDelete
I went for "books that are actually on my TBR shelf right now, plus a few I'm waiting for from the library". And now I'm excited for fall!
Yay! That was exactly the point of this whole list! :) Fall isn't my favourite season, but I'm looking forward to it because of all these shiny books :)Delete
Great list! I also really want to read Venom and Valkyrie Rising, they sound really awesome =DReplyDelete
Thanks! Hope you enjoy both of them!Delete
I haven't heard of most of these -- which makes me happy. New recommendations!ReplyDelete
It's the best thing about these lists! They're so good (or is that bad?) for my TBR list :)Delete
I agree, the Falling Kingdoms cover is really nice. I'm going to have to look that one up just because of the cover.ReplyDelete
Yay! I know the whole thing with don't judge a book by its cover, but this one is SO PRETTY! :)Delete
Eve and Adam sounds like it could be intriguing.ReplyDelete
Yes! I hope it'll be as amazing as the premise makes it sound! :)Delete
YES to Falling Kingdoms!! I cannot WAIT to read this one!ReplyDelete
Me either!! Yay epic fantasy! :DDelete
I have Crewel pre-ordered to borrow at the library, but will have to check out the others that you mentioned here! I'm so excited for books this Fall :)ReplyDelete
Me too!! There are so many amazing sounding ones! Hope you enjoy Crewel! :)Delete
Valkyrie Rising sounds like it could be fun!ReplyDelete
Yes! Epic mythological fun! One of the best kinds :)Delete
So many books to read this Fall!!!!ReplyDelete
I KNOW!!! :)Delete
I'm kind of embarrassed to say that I haven't heard of a single book on your list. Wow.ReplyDelete
Don't be embarassed! I spend a whole lot of time trolling the internet for new releases when I should be doing something more productive ;)Delete
Falling Kingdoms sounds amazing-- I have cover lust over that one as well! Eve and Adam is on my list, too; it sounds fascinating and Michael Grant is involved, so it must be good. Awesome list-- I'm having fun looking up all of these.ReplyDelete
I've heard really good things about Gone by Michael Grant, though I haven't actually read it myself yet! And gah, I think that if Falling Kingdoms gets here, I will just hug it and put it on display, cause that book is too pretty to go straight to the shelves :)Delete
Ohhh, this one sounds good: Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson I'm all about that one. Great list. I hope you enjoy reading these and I'll be watching for reviews. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! I know, it sounds amazing right? :DDelete
FALLING KINGDOMS is on my list as well! Oh, SACRIFICE, yes, I have to read that as well. I have ARCs of BLACK CITY, EVE AND ADAM, and VENOM to read. I enjoyed CREWEL and hope you will as well! Ack, I still need to start this Chima series... I'd forgotten about VALKRYIE RISING. Yes! I need to read A BEAUTIFUL DARK, too -_- Great list!ReplyDelete
Do you also run your own blog, Daisy? I feel as though our tastes are very similar!
So glad you enjoyed Crewel! I'm dying to read all of them! :D And the Seven Realms series is SO GOOD! I can't even begin to describe my love for those books!Delete
And yes, I do run my own blog as well :)
It does sound like we have similar tastes, I'm going to look up your blog right now :)
I'm really excited for Falling Kingdoms too. Such a HUGE fantasy lover. <3ReplyDelete
Yay for fantasy lovers! :D I cannot wait for that gorgeous book to be released!Delete
Great list! There are a bunch here I would like to read as well. I recently got Falling Kingdoms myself and Crewel sounds really good and different.ReplyDelete
I'm turning into a little green monster because you already have Falling Kingdoms!! Go read it and tell me of its awesomeness so I can get even more excited! :)Delete
We have a few that we both have to read hopefully this fall.ReplyDelete
Do let me know what you think after you've read them! :)Delete
It gives me warm fuzzies to see that KA Applegate is still writing! I had a gazillion of the Animorphs books.ReplyDelete
I've never actually read the Animorphs book, but I know a lot of people love them! Hope this one lives up to your memories of her writing! :)Delete
Great list! I can't wait to read Black City and Crewel! ~ Jen @ A Book and a Latte - Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR ListReplyDelete
Thanks! Black City sounds amazing and Crewel *dies* :)Delete
I cannot wait to read Falling Kingdoms, it sounds so epic and so awesome! Great list! :)ReplyDelete
YES! I'm anticipating all the EPIC FANTASY EXCITEMENT! :DDelete
Crewel is on my list too! I may have to add Sacrifice or the first in that series--looks goooood.ReplyDelete
I really liked Legacy (the first book) and Allegiance (the second book) was even better with amazing character growth and just epic fantasy! I loved it! Hope you enjoy it as well!Delete
So many books, so little time!ReplyDelete
It's so fun to read everyone's TBR lists--so many good books ahead. Enjoy your Fall reading. kaye—the road goes ever ever onReplyDelete
Interesting list! I haven't heard of most of the books on yours, but I want to look in to them. I enjoy the TBR lists, although mine has some glaring similarities to my summer TBR list.ReplyDelete
The covers of your choices are beautiful. We share a love for reading, but of different genres. Have a terrific week.ReplyDelete
I'm also excited for Black City and Crewel!ReplyDelete
Great picks, Daisy! Crewel looks super good and I'm curious about Eve & Adam, too! Oh, and Valkyrie Rising looks AWESOME!!ReplyDelete
Hope you can read all of these!
Great list!!!! I can't wait to read those as well. Eve and Adam sounds really good. Hope you enjoy all of these.ReplyDelete
What a fun list to make! Awesome!ReplyDelete
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
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
Oops, got here a day late!ReplyDelete
I am SO, SO excited for Sacrifice. I can't shake the feeling that it's going to be EPIC!ReplyDelete
May not have posted until today, but I wrote it yesterday! I still haven't finished my summer list...ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
