Hi lovelies! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is ’10 books on my Fall 2018 TBR’, which is perfect as I had already planned a post talking about upcoming releases and books I’m excited to read soon! Some of these are books I’ve been saving ALL YEAR to read during the dark cold nights and others are sequels I’ve been dying for over the last few months.
Muse of Nightmares
Pretty sure this is most people’s most anticipated read of the year?! And rightly so. Strange the Dreamer was such an absolute masterpiece with a totally killer ending and I just know that Queen Laini is going to deliver once again with this conclusion to the duology. I’ve got it preordered and fully intend to read it as quickly as possible when it arrives.
Fierce like a Firestorm
Lana Popovic’s debut Wicked like a Wildfire was one of my favourite books of 2017 and I have been going out of my mind waiting for this sequel! The first book was so magical and full of the most divine purple prose; I can’t wait to flail over this one.
A Storm of Ice and Stars
It seems like this is the year of the duology’s end. All three of these anticipated releases are the second and final books in duologies! A Shiver of Snow and Sky was another book I really loved last year, though I initially thought it was a standalone. I’m delighted that Lisa Lueddecke has written another book set in the same world and can’t wait to get back to the snowy land of Skane!
I got this book for an absolute steeeal recently – that, combined with Zuky’s praise, bumped it right up high on my TBR list!
My Best Friend’s Exorcism
Everyone RAVES about this book. It’s something I liked the sound of but resisted buying… until last week when I saw yet another glowing review and decided on impulse to get it!
The Halloween Tree
In 2016, I read Fahrenheit 451 and in 2017, I read Something Wicked This Way Comes. So I decided to continue my tradition of an annual Ray Bradbury with this October-appropriate story which comes highly recommended!
The Witchfinder’s Sister
This is a book that I wanted to read last year when it came out – but I couldn’t justify spending the money on the hardcover. I was then really shallow and refused to buy the paperback because it wasn’t as pretty (I know, *shame*). As luck would have it, my shallowness actually paid off because I found the hardback in a charity shop for £2! I’ve been saving it for October for a witchy-themed buddy read with an Instagram friend!
I bought this edition of Rebecca in a January sale and have diligently saved it until now because I wanted it to be a really atmospheric read on cold dark nights! I love Gothic literature so I’m really hoping this will become a new favourite.
Bonus reads I’m excited for
The Handmaid’s Tale
This is a book that has been on my TBR for years and I am finally going to read it! I know it’s one of those that divides opinion but I’m hoping to fall into the love camp. Either way, it’s time to see what all the hype is about!
Water for Elephants
Another book I’ve been aware of for years but never picked up! It actually fits one of the PopSugar 2018 reading challenge prompts (a bestseller from the year I graduated high school) so I’m delighted to finally have an excuse to make time for it!
What are some books you’re excited to read this autumn? x
