Top Ten Tuesday! Books on my Fall To Be Read List

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! This list is all about the books I’m excited for this all (in no particular order):

 Top Ten Tuesday is a meme started on the Broke and the Bookish
blog. They set the topic, we make the lists. Visit their site to see more on this topic!

Alpine is a local author and her book has received advanced praise. It’s about a young woman trying to find herself and then dealing with being assaulted. There’s a lot of poetry and creativity in these pages and I can’t wait for it to hit shelves.

Jhumpa, oh Jhumpa. You write lovely modern classics from The Namesake and Interpreter of Maladies. I can’t wait to read your next novel.

You thought she was done with the Sookie Stackhouse series, eh? Well technically she is, but in Harris’s new book, she outlines what happens to the characters we loved, hated, and need to hear more about.

The fourth book in the Benny Iumura series. Think Fallout 3 mixed with Resident Evil 6. The zombie apocalypse happened and humanity is struggling. In this series, the main characters are trying to not just survive, but prosper. The fourth book follows the characters as doctors get closer to a cure that will hopefully help save one of the newly infected main characters.

This has a great cover and Black, known for her series The Spiderwick Chronicles, creates a bleak world in which monsters and humans intermingle within the walls of Coldtown. Then something goes wrong…

A little royal intrigue! Here’s another historical fiction about the Tudor’s, this one from the perspective of the queen who outlived Henry VIII. This is an intriguing court drama in the vein of Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel.

This is the third book in Valente’s series, and these books are witty, fantastical, clever, and so fun to read! Imagine Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz having a baby and this series is what you get. Although it’s meant for children/young adults, this is a series that is easily transferable to adults.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell 
Rowell wrote Eleanor and Park, a YA novel that was excellent, so I can’t wait to read the next work she has coming out.
The second book in the Finishing School series about a young woman sent away to be made into a lady. Little did her parents know this was a finishing school and a school to train spies. We’re excited for the second part of this humorous, adventurous YA novel.

Longbourn by Jo Baker 
Longbourn is from the perspective of the maids, during the circumstances of Pride and Prejudice, and is not only a fascinating look at the behind the scenes life of the Bennets, but a captivating look at the life of servants in the Regency era, especially that of young Sarah, who dreams of a different life.  Plus, it’s being made into a film (supposedly)…

And you, dear reader? What are you looking forward to this fall?
