Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Books On My TBR List for This Autumn

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the broke and the bookish. This week the list is the top ten books you've got your eye on for this upcoming "fall season". All of the books on my list are released between September 23rd and December 23rd, as in the original list.

In no particular order:

10. Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber
This is an author that I've come across once or twice, but up till now I haven't read any of her books. This one is described as being: "The Picture of Dorian Gray meets Pride and Prejudice, with a dash of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." How could I resist? The answer is: I can't.

I read the first book, India Black, earlier this year and really enjoyed it. I've already got this book on preorder and I'm looking forward to getting my mitts on it come October.

8. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
I saw the word "X-Men" in the synopsis and I was sold. I'm so easy to please!
(As a side note, the concept seems intriguing too.)

7. Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I fully expect this one to be more or less a retelling of Vampire Academy but with gods instead of vampires. I'm hoping that it'll be better than Vampire Academy, though!

6. The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
Read the synposis and I bet it'll be on your TBR list too! Plus, check that cover! I haven't read her first book yet, but I will do as soon as the American paperback is made available here.

5. Double Dexter by Jeff Lindsay
I adore all things Dexter. It's one of the few American comedies that I really do find funny because of the author's skills at subtle dark humour. This is one that I will definitely be reading, but I won't be buying it until it's released as a paperback.

4. A Crimson Warning by Tasha Alexander
The sixth book in the Lady Emily series. Historical murder mystery with a touch of romance. Ever since I discovered the Lady Julia series by Deanna Raybourn, just my cup of tea! I really enjoy this series, though this is another book where I'll be waiting until the paperback is released.

3. The Kingdom by Amanda Stevens
I read the first book in The Graveyard Queen series, The Restorer, earlier this week. I adored it. I cannot wait to get my hands on this sequel! I'm a bit confused as to when it's actually going to be released - official date is 18th October - but I can't preorder it for then from any sites, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be then!

2. Kingdoms of Dust by Amanda Downum
The third book in the Necromancer Chronicles. I really enjoyed the first book in this series. I still have to read the second book, but I'm sure I'll love it just as much. I'll be buying this one as soon as it is available.

1. Killing Rites by M.L.N. Hanover
The fourth book in The Black Sun's Daughter series. One of my favourite UF series at the moment. Another one that I'll be snapping up as soon as it's released.


Added extra: Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning
This one was released back in January, but the paperback isn't going to be released until October. I'm already impatient and am having to stop myself from cracking and going out to buy the hardback!


And there you have it for me.


  1. What?! There is a new Dexter book?!?! This is the first I've heard of it and now I can't wait to read it!!

  2. I forgot about the 2nd India Black book! I really enjoyed the first one, definitely keen to get the second one as soon as it's out.
