This week is freebie week and you can choose whatever top 10 topic you like. Since back to school started up again this week in my town I am starting to think about fall. With that in mind, I made a list of my most anticipated fall reads.
My reading interests don’t necessarily change in the fall, except maybe to pick up a horror book or two in October. The books I’ve chosen are all either standalone or the first book in a series and are a mix of different YA genres.
These are the titles that have piqued my interest for fall reading:
2. Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez (October 18) – This one looks like a good one for music lovers. It is about a musical prodigy and provides an inside look at what it takes to succeed.
3. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater (October 18) – I’ve read the authors other series and I’m curious to read this one about riders that compete in a dangerous water horse race.
4. After Obsession by Carrie Jones, Steven E. Wedel (September 13) – A scary and creepy paranormal about possession.
5. The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton (September 27) – An historical fiction book about faeries set in Victorian London.
6. Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon (October 4) – A paranormal book set in Ireland with romance and an interesting mythology.
7. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (November 15) – A dystopian where the heroine has a fatal touch. This is another one being compared to The Hunger Games, but it does sound intriguing.
8.The Pledge by Kimberly Derting (November 15) – In this dystopian world inhabitants are kept separate by the language they speak, but the heroine has the ability to speak all languages. Sounds like an interesting concept.
9. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (September 27) – I’m eager to read this story about the aftermath of an accident where the heroine has lost her memory and strange things begin to occur.
10. Fateful by Claudia Gray (September 13) – An historical fiction with werewolves on the Titanic by the author of the Evernight series. I’m so curious about this one.
Do your reading tastes change in the fall? What fall books are you looking forward to? I’m excited to check out everyone’s lists this week!
