Top Ten Tuesday #28: Fall 2017 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these but I couldn’t resist this week’s topic:

Fall TBR!!!

😀 Love creating them but never follow them, here’s what I might/mightn’t read:

Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, illus. by Gris Grimly

An illustrated version of Mary Shelley’s famous story. I’ve never read the classic, so a bonus book on this TBR is the actual classic novel Frankenstein, if I can work up the interest to read it.

Isle of Blood by Rick Yancey

The third novel in the Monstrumologist series, Yancey’s YA horror series. I really need to get to this. It’s as if I’m reading a book per year.

Locke & Key, Vol. 2: Head Games by Joe Hill, illus. by Gabriel Rodriguez

Joe Hill’s horror comic book series about a family that movies to an odd house. I enjoyed the first volume and have been telling myself since forever to continue with it.

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

It’s kind of weird to include this in a group of dark reads geared toward Halloween, but I’d really like to read this before the year is done and I’m in the mood to pick it up now.

Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire

I read and enjoyed Every Heart a Doorway last year and would like to jump back into the story with this, which is a prequel, I’m told.

Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

I’ve never read it before, but I’ve seen some movie adaptations. I’d like to read it before trying Lost Boy: The True Story of Captain Hook by Christina Henry.

The Fall by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan

I enjoyed The Strain, the book and TV show, and would love to continue with the second in the trilogy. It’s a horror story set in New York City about vampires taking over.

Warren the 13th and the Whispering Woods by Tania del Rio, illus. by Will Staehle

This was published earlier this year and I have yet to read it. I’ll do so this fall. It’s an illustrated story about a boy who manages his family’s hotel. It’s the second in the series.

Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman

I’m in the mood for books about witches so this is perfect. I love the movie so I hope I’ll like the book as much.

Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold

I refuse to let the year end without me reading another Chalion novel. This is the second novel of the fantasy series set in Chalion. The first, The Curse of Chalion, is a favorite.

From my progress on my TBRs so far this year, it seems that I’m doing well with them. I read almost 50% of my Spring TBR and the same amount for my Summer TBR. Compared to the past, I’d say that’s a success and it’s highly likely that I’ll read almost 50% of this one too (or none of them, haha!). 🙂

What do you plan to read this fall?

  1. I actually bought my first Alice Hoffman book recently. It’s not Practical Magic (though that was one of the books I was looking for, and it was out of stock), but a short story collection called Blackbird House. Either way, I’ll be interested in reading your thoughts on Practical Magic when you get around to it.

    My reading plans for the fall… Gee, if I could remember the books off-hand, that would help. (*lol*) There are a lot of new books coming out that I want to read, but the ones I’m looking forward to most are Kristin Cashore’s Jane Unlimited, Leigh Bardugo’s The Language of Thorns, Rae Carson’s Into the Bright Unknown, and Anna-Marie McLemore’s Wild Beauty. I have a few older books I’d like to get to as well, especially N.K. Jemisin’s Kingdom of the Gods and The Awakening Kingdom (the last novel of her Inheritance Trilogy and its companion novella).

    Btw, you’re also a Tamora Pierce fan, right? I think she has a new book coming out soon, the start of a new series set in Tortall.

  2. I still need to finish Locke & Key! I’ve read all but the last volume, but at this point probably should start again from the beginning and power through until the end.
