Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books for Fall

Top Ten Tuesday: the weekly meme hosted by the fabulous ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is “books on the top of your TBR list for fall” which I’m interpreting as the books scheduled for release in the fall.  Mainly because I want to...though it’s going to make my next few Waiting on Wednesday’s difficult! 

1. Prized by Caragh O’Brien - I just got an eArc of this book from NetGalley today, and I’m SO EXCITED to read it.  I totally loved Birthmarked, and I know I’m going to be on edge waiting for the third in the trilogy as soon as I finish Prized.
2. The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan - Percy and Annabeth and Jason, Leo, and Piper all coming back to bookstores near me (us?)!  The slightly older nature of The Lost Hero (compared to the Percy Jackson series) pleased me, and I can’t wait to learn more about the Roman demigods and their camp.
3. Mastiff by Tamora Pierce - I’ve been reading Tamora Pierce since I was a little child (Alanna FTW!), and I’ve been waiting for the final part of Beka’s trilogy for what seems like forever now.  Beka’s story is my second favourite of the Tortall books after Aly.  I just love the crime procedural quality and also the focus on the Lower City.  (Plus Beka and Rosto the Piper need to finally get together, darnit!  George is SO descended from Rosto.  I refuse to believe otherwise!)
4. The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees - My review from the NetGalley eArc I received is actually going up later today, but I seriously loved this book.  It's nothing overly deep or thought-provoking, but it was a lovely and fluffy (mostly) story that made me so very happy.
5. The Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare - I thought The Clockwork Angel was a really neat prequel to The Mortal Instruments series, and the steampunky Victorian London setting was a lot of fun.
6. One Salt Sea by Seanan McGuire - I’m not even caught up on the Toby series yet, but I’m definitely planning on buying the sixth one as soon as it comes out.  More adventures of Toby and Tybalt and Quentin are always a good, good thing.
7. Vanish by Sophie Jordan - I’ve got such a weakness for dragon books, and Firelight was just an interesting concept. 
8. Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl - Mmm, Southern Gothic.  I actually haven’t read Beautiful Darkness yet because I’m kind of a failure, but Beautiful Creatures was awesome, and I could just feel that muggy heat of the Deep South as I read it.
9. Fateful by Claudia Grey - I’m not the biggest fan of the Evernight series, but this is werewolves on the Titanic!  I'm so overly excited about this!
10. Crossed by Ally Condie - Matched was a fun read, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the sequel plays out - especially since crap got real at the end of Matched.  Plus I'm not going to deny that the awesomeness of the cover is exciting.

I tried to keep Lola and the Boy Next Door off this list because it was last week's Waiting on Wednesday, but the book just doesn't won't stay away!  So #11 - Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins for so many reasons. 


  1. Really great list! I want to read Fateful so badly as well, but I completely forgot about it when making my list. :o Some of your books are from series that are on my list, haha. :)

  2. I enjoyed the original Percy Jackson series! I thought Riordian was going to move on to other characters, so I'll be looking for this one in the library...

  3. New follower :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

    Vanish and Fateful are both amazing, and I just realized I forgot to put the Son of Neptune on my list...

  4. Finally, the last book of the Tamora Pierce trilogy. YES!

    My Head is Full of Books

  5. Fateful sounds interesting... I didn't love Evernight either (in fact I think it was a DNF) but I'd like to try Fateful. I'll read Crossed too and you're right, the cover is pretty awesome

  6. My associate blogger reviewed Juliet Spell the other day and she adored it, so I guess I'm gonna have to read it as well.

    Great list.

  7. I have Clockwork Prince and Beautiful Chaos on my list too! I wanted to put Vanish and Crossed on mine also but ran out of room. Its so hard limiting it to just 10!

  8. Fab list while Vanished and The Juliet Spell did not make my list, I have these on my list of must reads too!

  9. Crossed is on my list too! And I agree — Alanna FTW! :D

  10. How could I forget The Son of Neptune?? The shame... And YES, Alanna FTW!! We should be a team :) I'm really looking forward to the Juliet Spell, glad you liked it :)
    Thanks for stopping by @ the Broke and the Bookish!

  11. I can't wait for the new Tamora Pierce too! Love her books!

  12. Great list! Definitely looking forward to Clockwork Prince.

  13. Crossed and The Son of Neptune are on my list also. But shame on me, I've not read The Lost Hero yet.

  14. I'm really looking forward to Clockwork Prince as well; I loved Clockwork Angel and I'm dying to know what Will's secret is. He's so mysterious!
