Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR

fall tbr

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish. I love when it’s time to make the seasonal TBR lists! And making a Fall TBR list is quite daunting indeed. I read 7/10 of my summer list, so hopefully I’m on the right track with fall too. I chose to focus on books that are new releases this fall, though there are some older books I also hope to catch up with. Currently I’m reading the Outlander series so if I get really hooked then this list will go out the window, sigh.

These are the books on my Fall TBR:

1. Perfectly Good White Boy by Carrie Mesrobian  – Sean is in his senior year of high school and all his possibilities for the future look “disposable” until he sets his sights on joining the Marines. I really loved Sex & Violence by this author and I’m eager to read more. Oct. 1, Carolrhoda Lab.

2. Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley  – This is our next Diversity book club pick and it’s already garnered some great reviews. It’s a historical fiction about civil rights and lgbt issues. Sept. 30, Harlequin Teen.

3. Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future by A.S. King  – A.S. King is an auto-read author for me, and her newest sounds very unique. Glory doesn’t see a future after high school, but a little magical realism allows her to see horrific visions of the past and future that inspires her to make changes. Oct. 14, Little, Brown.

4. Loop by Karen Akins – This is a 23rd century time travel romance where things get a little complicated. It sounds really fun! Oct. 21, St. Martin’s Griffin.

5. My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins – I’m looking forward to kicking off holiday reading with this collection of short stories by some YA author greats. Oct. 14, St. Martin’s Press.

6. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel  – Andrew is reading this one now and loving it, as are many of my blogger friends. I’m waiting for my audio hold to come in so I can listen to it for myself! It’s a post-apocalyptic book about that sounds really lovely. Sept. 9, Knoph.

7. Yes Please by Amy Poehler – I adore Amy and can’t wait to read her take on the humorous memoir. Definitely want to pick up the audio of this one. Oct. 28, HarperAvenue.

8. Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham  – This also sounds like a very entertaining memoir, and contains stories about dating, career, and friendship from the Girls creator. Sept. 30, Random House.

9. Us by David Nicholls – Us is about a middle aged man trying to save his failing marriage on a family trip to Europe. Sounds like a wonderful read to me. Oct. 28, Harper.

10. Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren – I have to have some romance on this list, and you can’t go wrong with the writing team of Christina Lauren. This is the second book in the Wild Seasons series. Harlow and Finn both like to be in charge so it could never work between them, right? Nov. 4, Gallery Books.

What’s on your Fall TBR?

    I love “Us” and hope you do too. “Station Eleven” is also a great read, but with some world building issues that impinged slightly on my enjoyment. Glory O’Brien is also on my TBR list for Fall and I’m looking forward to it immensely.

      Ooh you’ve already read Us? It sounds fantastic, as does Station Eleven. Hope we both love Glory!

  5. We have so many books in common! I’m reading Station Eleven Now, and have Dirty Rowdy Thing ready to go. I read My True Love Gave to Me and really loved it – can’t wait for you to read it too! I’ll be seeing Lena Dunham (can’t wait) so will pick up the book then for her to sign. Yay for fall reads!

      Yes! Loop looks great. Happy fall reading 🙂

    Looks really interesting ! I’m especially interested in ‘Lies’, I have read several novels on the same theme, but this one looks completely fresh and daring at the same time… I’ll wait for your opinion 🙂

    1. Lucy says:

      Everyone seems to really like “Lies” and I’m so excited to finally read it. Hope you read some great books this fall!

      Yes! I’m sure Amy’s book won’t disappoint. Happy fall reading!

  10. YES to Dirty Rowdy Thing! It’s true, you always get a fun and enjoyable read from that duo. I haven’t started their Wild Seasons series yet but I really should seeing that book 6 of the Beautiful series will cross-over I think. Hope you enjoy all your picks 🙂

      Ooh I hadn’t heard that book 6 of the Beautiful series will cross-over. How cool! Hope you enjoy the Wild Seasons series when you get to it. I loved the first book!

  11. I’ve seen Station Eleven on so many lists… Including mine! Hope it’s as good as it looks 😉

      Yes! Hope we both love Station Eleven. Happy fall reading 🙂

  12. Lucy says:

    I too am looking forward to the festiveness of My True Love. You always have such an eclectic mix of picks and this week is no different. I love David Nichols and would like to read more by him, and Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future looks awesome. Hope you manage to read your way through this great list 🙂

    1. Lucy says:

      Thanks Lucy 🙂 My True Love has so many great authors that I’m very optimistic about it. I haven’t read any David Nichols before, and Us will be my first. I hear good things about One Day though. Happy fall reading!

  13. I’m looking forward to My True Love Gave to Me. Such a good group of authors!

    1. Lucy says:

      Totally a great line-up of authors! Hope we both love it 🙂

  14. Rachel says:

    It’s a love/hate relationship when a book or series is so good all of your other plans go out the window. Lies We Tell Ourselves, Not That Kind of Girl and Us are all books I hope to get to in 2015, there’s probably not much hope left for this year!

      It makes me sad that I can’t get through all the books I want to read. It’s so much pressure to choose the right books! Hope you enjoy all your fall reading 🙂

  15. elena says:

    omg yes to My True Love Gave to Me! I absolutely cannot wait to read it!

  19. I am so behind on all things reading and blogging since about June, which means I haven’t been thinking much about fall/winter releases. I can’t let some of these good ones pass me by — I didn’t even realize Carrie Mesrobian has a new book out! I’ve got to start planning for my fall break reading, so thank you for helping me think about some titles I want to buy/request!
