Top Ten Tuesdays: Top Books On My Fall TBR

Top Ten Tuesday, TTT

It’s actually spring in Australia, so I guess this is more my summer reading TBR – but I’ll roll with the rest of the world πŸ˜€

I had the idea to make this Top Ten Tuesday resemble magazine advertisements, it sounded really cool in my mind but my execution failed spectacularly lmao. Β I also had some surprise family visits so I could only do seven books! Β I AM SORRY. REAL LIFE CALLS.

TTT-ComingSoon-1

1) SOUNDLESSΒ by Richelle Mead because it’s an Asian fantasy with a kickass cover, how could I NOT love it?

TTT-ComingSoon-2

2) ILLUMINAE by Amie Kaufman and Jay KristoffΒ I feel like everyone and their dog has read this book, but I am still pretty excited because I saw someone compare it to Battlestar Galactica AKA MY FAVE SHOW EVER.

TTT-ComingSoon-3

3) Β WINTER by Marissa MeyerΒ because there’s a black Snow White! Also possibly the most anticipated sequel of this year, right up there with Queen of Shadows.

TTT-ComingSoon-4

4) Β THE SLEEPER AND THE SPINDLE by Neil GaimanΒ because princesses that saves themselves and it’s Gaiman! Plus gorgeous pictures. WANT. WANT. WANT.

TTT-ComingSoon-5

5, 6, 7) BLOOD & SALT, WE’LL NEVER BE APART and THE DEAD HOUSEΒ all Halloween type titles I have heard great things about, and hope to read in October!


Wow that is a lot of black and white and a lot of graphic fail. Remind me to never try to be hip again.

ANYWAY! What’s on your fall TBR?

    • I am pleased you like the graphics! I just thought it was quite different from my usual style so I was too unsure of it. EEP I am glad you like The Sleeper and The Spindle, makes me even more excited!

  1. I think you did a pretty fine job with the graphics Aentee! ❀ I really need to start reading the Lunar Chronicles series *sobs*
    And these are some exciting books! It really does seem like EVERYONE has read Illuminae! Agh! I want to be one of those people!! 😭

    Wonderful picks this week! πŸ˜„

    • I think you would love the Lunar Chronicles series, so I hope you’ll get a chance to read it soon!
      I know right! I feel like all the US bloggers have already read it – there’s a launch night in Syd and Melbourne at the end of October though, will you be going?

    • I love making graphics for the TTT because I’m worried they would be too short otherwise haha, I actually skip doing TTTs if I can’t think up of a graphic to do for it πŸ˜„ I AM SO OBSESSIVE.

  2. I’m excited to read the Gaiman novel but alas, it’s not available in the UK so I need to wait. And I’m excited for you to try The Dead House! I love that book πŸ™‚ and the graphics look good as usual, especially the one for Soundless πŸ™‚

  3. Illuminae is my most anticipated book at the moment. I honestly can’t wait to get my hands on that book. Winter is also very high on my tbr list. Your graphics are wonderful. Great list.

  4. Winter and Illuminae are two of my “must read” books this year! I’m still not 100% sure I’m going to read Soundless, but there’s a Richelle Mead event near my house for its release so I may end up buying it anyway xD

    PS: Your graphics are still amazing because I wouldn’t have even though to do that πŸ˜‰

    • I am not 100% sure on Soundless either because I thought VA was a bit of a mess, but it has a East Asian protagonist so I just want to support it on principles!

      Thank you Kayla ❀

    • Okay, obviously that is NOT what I meant to comment. That was a copy and paste fail. πŸ˜„

      What I did mean to say is YAY BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. I love that show. (The newer one, haven’t seen the old one.) That comparison makes me even more excited for Illuminae. πŸ˜€

      • YOU LIKE BATTLESTAR GALACTICA AS WELL? WE ARE BOTH SO AWESOME, I CANNOT ❀ Seriously my favourite tv show ever,

  5. Illuminae made it on my TBR list as well! I need to start it this weekend… we’ll see if I find the time! I just finished reading “Soundless” over the weekend, and really enjoyed it. Do you have an ARC copy of it? If not, I’d be happy to pass mine on to you once I get my review written. I don’t think it comes out until November.

    • Yeah it doesn’t come out the November, but I am happy to wait, since shipping would be so expensive from the US! Thank you so much for offering though, I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed it!

    • I also need to read the rest of The Lunar Chronicles before reading Winter, I think I’ll do a marathon week like I did with the Throne of Glass series last week!

  6. OMG YES TO ALL OF THESE AENTEE. I am so nervous excited for Winter – I absolutely love the Lunar Chronicles series and am hoping this is just as good as the first three have been. And AHH. You are going to absolutely adore Illuminae and The Dead House. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous choices! ❀

    • I am so glad to hear you gave the thumbs up to Illuminae and The Dead House, I trust your taste and therefore I am doubly excited now!

  7. I’m looking forward to all of these books, too! If I read Soundless, it will be my first Richelle Mead read. It’s the first of her books that interest me so far, although I’ve heard her others are promising. Just for the record, though- my dog and I have not yet read Illuminae (I don’t have a copy yet. I don’t even have a dog…lol). I am really excited for Winter but I need to catch up on the rest of the Lunar Chronicles series. I *cringes* haven’t read past Cinder yet but I liked the first book!

    Also: those graphics are awesome! You’re so talented, I think you should be proud of those pictures:)

    • To be honest I did not really enjoy VA which were the only Richelle Mead books I’ve checked out -but I heard her second series Bloodlines is excellent. Plus, Chinese inspired fantasy, I really can’t say no to that haha. I also need to read the rest of the TLC series as well, like you, I have not read past Cinder but I am sure it should be fantastic.

      Thanks so much Claire ❀

    • Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on all of those titles, especially for Illuminae πŸ˜€ there’s been so much hype and love for that series I almost feel like it’s too good to be true, haha.

    • Are you enjoying We’ll Never Be Apart? I am glad you liked The Sleeper and the Spindle! That one sounds awesome from what I have heard so far.

      Like

    • Yes, I keep forgetting about it because I have not seen too much hype about it, but Soundless sound amazing! Illuminae is pretty much old news by this stage, but I still want to read it so badly!

    • I used to read every single Neil Gaiman book as soon as they were released, so I’ve been dropping the ball this year πŸ˜„ I really need to fix that starting with The Sleeper and the Spindle.

  8. I’m also excited for Winter and Soundless! I want to give Illuminae a shot too, but I’m hesitant because I really disliked Jay Kristoff’s Lotus series. Maybe I’ll wait for your review on it before giving it a go πŸ˜›

    • Yeah I tried reading Jay Kristoff’s Stormdancer and had to side eye the Japanese appropriation a lot — but hopefully with Amie Kaufman there to temper him this one will be OK?

  9. Totally agree with Illuminae – it looks AMAZING! The Sleeper and the Spindle is a really beautiful read, especially with the intricate illustrations, hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚

  10. SOUNDLESS SOUNDS SO BADASS ASDFGHJKL MUCH NEED!! Also I adore Richelle Mead, so bonus points for that. πŸ˜‰ I’m definitely going to read Illuminae soon as well! I didn’t even realize it was already almost October. My ARC is dying to be read! Wiiiiinter!! I need more Captain Thorne in my life! I’m also going to read Blood and Salt soon, but I’ve tried reading a few chapters of We’ll Never Be Apart, and it’s incredibly underwhelming. 😦

    Ooh. Soundless. I saw it on Penguin’s First to Read but I hadn’t requested it. The Distance Between Me and You, Young Widows Club, Consent, and The Anatomical Shape of a Heart are currently on my Fall TBR! Great list, Aentee! πŸ˜€

  14. Ah, FABULOUS choices, at least of the ones I have read and want to read, which is… all of them except one which I never heard of (the Neil Gaiman one). Illuminae IS fabulous. My dog said so too πŸ˜‰ (I don’t even have a dog.) I also loved Blood and Salt, so another great choice! Hope you love all of these, it’s a fantastic looking bunch!

  16. Thank you for this blog post! I am so used to seeing the same books all over the place, but I like your first pick, ‘Soundless’. I hadn’t heard of it before and now I’m intrigued. ^.^ Top Ten Tuesday is such a great way to hear about new books!
