Top Ten Books On Our Fall TBR list

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books On Our Fall To-Be-Read List

Sarah’s List 
1) The Demon King (Seven Realms #1) by Cinda Williams Chima
It's been sitting on my shelf for a few months (which really isn't that long for me) and I've heard great things about it so I want to try it out soon.
2) Strange and Ever After (Something Strange and Deadly #3) by Susan Dennard
Final book in the most awesome series! I can't wait to get my hands on it!
3) Starcrossed (Starcrossed #1) by Josephine Angelini
Another one that's been sitting on my shelf for a while. I think it involves Greek mythology so I'm really excited read it!
4) The Blood of Olympus (Heroes of Olympus #5) by Rick Riordan
I kinda lost steam for this series after HOH but I still am ready to see how it all ends.
5) Lullaby (Watersong #2) by Amanda Hocking
I think I mostly want to read this for Daniel... :)
6) Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen
I keep trying to read it and I get a few pages in and stop for a bit. I really need to read it cause, hey, it's Captain Hook!
7) Deception (Defiance #2) by C.J. Redwine
I own an ARC of the third book so I really need to read this.
8) The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles #1) by Mary E. Pearson
This totally sounds like my type of book and the cover looks awesome. Hopefully it will come in the library soon.
9) Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White
It's Kiersten White. Duh.
10) Eve (Eve #1) by Anna Carey
Collecting dust on my shelf for over a year. I really should check it out.

Christina’s List
     *Half of these books I already have in my possession, but with all the reading and writing I have to do for school, I just can't get to them right now, and that just irks me! Come on, School, give me a break!
1) Dissonance by Erica O'Rourke
    - Alternate realities are my guilty pleasure... only I don't feel guilty :)
2) Lullaby (Watersong #2) by Amanda Hocking
     - I had trouble with the writing style of the first book, but once things got going it was pretty good. I'm excited to see where the story goes, and I just want to read more about Daniel.
3) Strange and Ever After (Something Strange and Deadly #3) by Susan Dennard
     - THIS SERIES IS SO AMAZING!!! I can't wait for the last book!
4) Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
     -  I really hope I like this book. I'm usually not one to read contemporaries, ANNA was an exception. I hope this book has the same magic.
5) Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff
    - I was kinda nervous about this book. I'm the type of person who loves creepy things, but am scared to pick them up... figure that one out. But I've read a lot of great reviews for this, and I loved Paper Valentine by Yovanoff. This sounds like a great Fall read.
6) Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones 
     - It's got superpowers and a thief. Need I say more?
7) Blue Lily, Lily Blue (Raven Cycle #3) by Maggie Steifvater
     - I love Stiefvater's style and characters, but I'm really nervous about where this series is going. I just don't know. But I am a loyal reader and will pick it up.
8) Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White
     - Kiersten White has been one of my favorite authors since I first read Paranormalcy. Mind Games and In The Shadows really cemented that love. I've read so many great reviews for this. It's going to be great!
9) Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker
     - Another book that sounds creepy and awesome.
10) On the Fence by Kasie West
      -  I just got this from the library. I've seen so many great reviews for this that I had to get it. Again, contemporaries are not my thing, but I live in hope.


  1. I really like The Kiss of Deception, so I definitely recommend it. Blue Lily, Lily Blue is the book that I am equal parts excited about and terrified of. There is an 80% chance it will kill me.
    My TTT

  2. Great list! Illusions of Fate is on my list. Blu Lily, Lily Blue and Dissonance aren't on my list but I do plan to read them both! I really liked Strange and Ever After, and The Kiss of Deception was an odd experience for me because I liked it but I hated it a lot too. Hope you enjoy!

  3. The Demon King is SO good! It starts out a little slowly, but it's one of my favorite YA fantasy series. I can't wait to read Blue Lily, Lily Blue! I need more Blue and the Raven Boys is my life!

    My Top Ten

  4. I have Alias Hook on my tbr list too, although I didn't list it for this Top Ten Tuesday. I hope we both enjoy it!

  5. ON THE FENCE is a quick read, cute and enjoyable. Not a ton of substance, but that's okay -- West is known for light, easy reads. I hope you enjoy it and all the others on your list. Happy reading!

  6. I love Kasie West's books and On the Fence was an especially good one!
    Great lists :-) New Follower.
