For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate, click here!
1. Landline by Rainbow Rowell -- This one came in one of my RiotRead packages and I've heard a lot of good things about her. The storyline sounds really interesting too. On the outset, who wouldn't love to be able to call into the past?
2. The Salinger Contract by Adam Langer -- This one is also courtesy of BookRiot--it came in the most recent Quarterly Box. I am really digging the recent spurt of literary mysteries and other books that somehow pay homage to the classics. It sounds like I might not be able to put this one dow!
3. The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert -- I bought this one as soon as it came out last year, but just never could get into it when I'd try to read it. To be completely honest, I've already been reading this one and would love to be finished by the time this post actually goes live. (Challenge accepted!)
4. Dracula by Bram Stoker or Frankenstein by Mary Shelley -- I always want to read some sort of dark, creepy book around Halloween and this is the year I think I am finally going to stick with it. I like how Dracula is told through letters, newspaper clippings, and diaries, in addition to parts of regular narration. It makes for an interesting flow.
5. Secrets of the Flesh by Judith Thurman -- This biography has been on my TBR shelf for ages. I am finally going to read it with an online friend who is reading all of the books mentioned on Gilmore Girls in order. I am really excited!
6. This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner -- I LOVED These Broken Stars and can't wait for the sequel!
7. Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover by Sarah MacLean -- Sarah MacLean's historical romance novels are awesome. So obviously I will be devouring this one.
8. Even in Paradise by Chelsey Philpot -- This just sounds like it could be REALLY good and I'm excited!
9. The Fall by Bethany Griffin -- I loved Masque of the Red Death, though I haven't read the sequel yet, and this sounds just as intriguing!
10. Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay -- It's about Sleeping Beauty's daughter, who is a warrior princess, disguising as a boy. I really don't need to say more, do I?
What's on your Fall TBR list??
Wooo I JUST got Landline from the library this week. I've been in line for FOREVER. Excited to read it!ReplyDelete
Ooh, Dracula and Frankenstein are such good choices for this time of year. I haven't read Frankenstein since college, and I'm not sure I've ever read Dracula. Kind of want to read both now!ReplyDelete
You ladies enjoy your fall reading. kelley—the road goes ever ever onReplyDelete
Landlinesounds amazing. Then again, it's Rainbow, so . . . You'll love either Dracula and/or Frankenstein I haven't read them since high school, but they're such great classics!ReplyDelete
My Fall Reads
The Fall is on my list as well!ReplyDelete
Historical romance books can be very good.ReplyDelete
Thanks for hosting another week of Top Ten.
Even in Paradise looks like a great companion to Great Gatsby for YA readers. Let us know what you think!ReplyDelete
Dracula is AWESOME. Love it!
Even in Paradise is on my TBR list, but it didn't make my top 10. I read Landline last month and really enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy all of your fall books!!ReplyDelete
Here is my TTT: http://www.jacquesbooknook.blogspot.com/2014/09/top-ten-tuesday-books-on-my-fall-to-be.html
Dracula is super creepy! I got about 1/2 way through it last October getting ready for Halloween. I need to start over because I was really enjoying it.ReplyDelete
I just won landline and can't wait to read my first Rainbow Rowell book. I think it's my first time participating in this linkup, or it's been so long I can't remember. I always love reading everyone's lists so glad I FINALLY got my list done in time to linkup. Thanks for hosting!ReplyDelete
I really really loved Landline and I hope you will too! Anyway, I made a little twist on my TTT post today because we don't Fall in the Philippines but it's still a TBR list, though. :)ReplyDelete
Your list made me realize that I need to find a good creepy book for Halloween as well -- this year is flying by!ReplyDelete
Number 1, 7, 9 and 10 sound interesting to me!ReplyDelete
YES, I need to read LANDLINE as well. I loved ATTACHMENTS and FANGIRL, and this one looks great as well.ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed Landline and I hope you do too!ReplyDelete
In other news I'm also excited for Princess of Thorns and Even in Paradise!
I had The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert waiting me but someone told me it was a boring. I hope you like it!ReplyDelete
Wow! I can't believe how many people are participating. I'm finding a lot of interesting blogs to visit.ReplyDelete
Dracula is really great, I've always loved it. Some people find it difficult because obviously, it's not a recent book, but I think it's great. And I need to read Landline too!ReplyDelete
Bram Stoker's Dracula is one I'll have to read soon, too. I loved the 1931 film, and the way it is written does sound very interesting.ReplyDelete
This is the second time I'm taking part in this series of posts, and I'm loving it, it's so much fun. And it's astonishing how many bloggers take part - great, great job!
Great lists! The fall is on my generic TBR. Here’s My TTTReplyDelete
I am looking forward to your review of Landline and The Fall! I have been wondering whether I should try those or not for a while :)ReplyDelete
