Julia's Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR List
I have been in a reading funk. I have been so busy with other things that my books have taken a sideline to other things. This top ten list I am going to use to get me excited about new to me books this year. Let's see what I can find.
1. Here I Am by Jonathan Safran Foer: I enjoyed Everything is Illuminated so I would be interested in taking a look at this.
2. Heartless by Marissa Meyer: I loved the Lunar Chronicles so a book about Wonderland and a retelling of the Queen of Hearts. I love her writing so I am checking this out.
3. Summerlong by Peter Beagle: I love Persephone-esque stories. I feel like trying some fantasy may help snap out of my slump.
4. A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles: I found this quote about it "about an early-20th-century Russian count sentenced by a Bolshevik tribunal to spend the rest of his life in Moscow's Metropol Hotel" (EW).
5. Do You Want to Start a Scandal by Tessa Dare: I love Tessa Dare. I always devour her so quickly. This one takes us back to her last series so this should be fun. Also I can't help singing this to the tune of "Do you want to build a Snowman" from Frozen...
6. Orphans of the Carnival by Carol Birch: Julia (I already like it... books with my name) is a freak, like the carnival kind, looking for love and takes a love potion. Sounds good enough of a premise right there for me to read it!
7. Love her Madly by M. Elizabeth Lee: This one about two friends going on a trip and one of them disappearing only to turn up years later or something like that is drawing me since I am about to go on a trip with my friend... I just hope neither of us disappears.
8.The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee: Future NYC and a cash of interesting characters it seems. I'll try it.
9. The Velvet Hours by Alyson Richman: An abandoned Parisian apartment tells a story to a point I guess of a grandmother and daughter each having to find their own way in different times. My summary sucks. I enjoyed the GR one though haha.
10. The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan: What a better ending then a book about books to get me back in the game?
