Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Fall 2013 TBR list

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they post a new topic that the participants come up with a top ten list for.

This week is all about the books on our Fall TBR lists, be they books actually released around now or just books we are planning to read. My list is a mixture of both.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, by Holly Black
I can't believe I still haven't bought it! I'm so busy >.< But she's one of my top authors and I've been waiting for it for almost 1.5 years! I need it. I loved the world of the original short story.

Allegiant, by Veronica Ross
Obvious, isn't it?

The Wise Man's Fear, by Patrick Rothfuss
I've already borrowed it from the same friend who lent me book one, but I'm holding off because once I start there's no way I'm getting anything else done until I finish... and it's a big book. But I don't think I can wait too long because I'm going through withdrawal.

A Darkness Strange and Lovely, by Susan Dennard
Also on my stack of not-yet-read books. Also one of the next lovelies I'll get to. I can't wait to meet Eleanor and Daniel again!

Stray Souls, by Kate Griffin
This is a spin-off of sorts of her Madness of Angels series, so I had to have it. I love her writing style and the way she suffuses a supposedly ordinary urban setting with magic.

A Great and Terrible Beauty, by Libba Bray
Because I always thought this book sounded amazing and I've never read one of her books before. It's also on the stack. I have quite a big stack of unread books.

The Falconer, by Elizabeth May
It's out next week I think and how could I not love a Scottish noble girl going out at night to hunt down and kill fairies in the Victorian age?!

The Way of Shadows, by Brent Weeks
I have a boxset of the entire trilogy (I'd been looking at it for at least 2 years before buying it) and I want to start it soon because... assassins.

Rogue, by Gina Damico
I LOVED the first two books in the trilogy! They were so funny XD Also, I can't resist reaper books.

The Fiery Heart, by Richelle Mead
This comes out in November and I don't know if that's still Fall or already Winter? Whatever. I want it. It has Adrian POV!! And the ending of Indigo Spell was o__O I can't see this going well, but I can't look away either.

 Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano, Premediated by Josin L. McQuein

What do you think of my reading list? And what do you have on your TBR?


  1. Haha yes, Allegiant is totally obvious xD And it made pretty much everyone's list this week! I'm also looking forward to The Coldest Girl in Coldtown because it sounds so intriguing and I love that cover <3
    Awesome list!

    My TTT

  2. Allegiant, The Fiery Heart and Perfect Ruin all made my list as well! I have so many books I want to read this fall and I probably won't get to half of them! :/

    My Top Ten

  3. Allegiant made my list. I've not heard of some of yours so I'll have to look them up and add em to my TBR list. Can't have too many books on there :-)

  4. I can't wait to read Allegiant and Coldest Girl too - I've been meaning to read something by Holly Black forever, and now is the perfect time.

  5. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, Allegiant and The Fiery Heart are all books I want to read.

  6. I am looking forward to reading The Coldest Girl in Coldtown! Great list!

  7. Great choices! I want to read all of these, except Stray Souls I don't know, but I'll check it out. I can't wait for The Falconer, The Fiery Heart and The Coldest Girl in Coldtown! Happy reading!
    My Top Ten Tuesday.

  8. I've been holding off on the Rothfuss books, even though I have copies of #1 and #2 already -- I just don't feel like I can get involved in another series without at least knowing when the final book will be out! I've been meaning to read A Great & Terrible Beauty for a long time now. Libba Bray is such a talented writer, but this trilogy is the only work by her that I haven't read yet. Nice list!

    My TTT

  9. Coldest Girl was awesome. Like, it rivals the Curse Workers series for me. :) I'm also excited about Fiery Heart, Perfect Ruin & Premeditated. And you HAVE to read A Great and Terrible Beauty. I adore the Gemma Doyle books and Libba Bray is just a fantastic author.

  10. Coldest Girl and Falconer were on my list as well. Can't wait to dive into those books!

  11. Allegiant! I want to read that SO bad! And I definitely am excited for Fiery Heart, but I need to get reading Indigo Spell! LOL! Great list Carmen!

  12. I've heard really good things about the Coldest Girl in Coldtown. I was so tempted to buy it last time I was at the bookstore, but I don't think I'm willing to pay full price. I hope you get your hands on a copy too!

  13. I can't wait to see how Allegiant ends. I really hope it'll get a decent, closed ending. I've been disappointed by dystopians(Requiem) way too much. Not to mention that the second book felt pretty meh to me... still I'm (somewhat) hopeful.

    Also, I like urban fantasy, so Stray Souls sounds pretty interesting. I'll have to check it out :)

  14. I'm currently reading The Coldest Girl in Coldtown and am loving it so far. I think you'll also love that one too Carmen! ;D
    I've heard a lot about The Falconer, but it's released in the US in May 2014. D:
    Great list Carmen & thanks for stopping by my TTT! (:
