Top Ten Tuesday #100

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Top Ten Books On My Autumn TBR.

I am terrible at sticking to a set TBR list (as evidenced by me doing #TheReadingQuest - I read a lot of books that didn't even count in any way) but here are some that I would love to get to this autumn and read as the nights draw in.

And yes, some of them are rereads.
  • Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
    This has been on my TBR forever, but somehow I've never got round to it. With the author's #SexyHistory posts I am now more eager than ever to read it.
  • Fir by Sharon Gosling
    This. Book. It is excellent! The whole Red Eye series was made for reading in autumn, and this on particularly for that first snow. I reviewed it here.
  • Basic Witches by Jaya Saxena
    Taking back the identity of the outcast, unruly woman and reclaiming it as a positive, empowering lifestyle? GET IT TO ME NOW.
  • Hands up if you loves A Little Princess! I can't wait for this story about Lottie, the power of friendship, and female empowerment. Sensing a theme here?
  • Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
    I love stories inspired by mythology and folklore, so I can't wait to see Gaiman's take.
  • The Gospel of Loki by Joanne Harris
    What's this? Another interpretation of Norse gods? Well, you can't say I'm not predictable. after hearing the author talk a little at YALC I can't wait to get stuck in.
  • Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld
    Fun Fact 1: I actually hate Jane Austen's writing. Can't stand it.
    Fun Fact 2: I bloody love the stories and retellings and interpretations.
  • I have purposefully been putting this off and waiting until autumn to read it, which has been very difficult considering it's excellent cover and rave reviews. Friendship and demonic possession? Yes please.
  • The Fandom by Anna Day
    I absolutely love anything about fandoms. I love the passion and how people are brought together, the feeling of belonging that comes with being a fan of something.
  • The Extinction Trials by Susan Wilson
    So uh... I don't actually know anything about this book. But the buzz around it is incredible and everyone is saying it's amazing. So naturally I want to read it.

  1. My boyfriend gave me Norse Mythology for my birthday, and I still haven't got around to reading it, so I might need to add that one to my TBR, too. All I know about The Extinction Trials is DINOSAURS!!!, but that's enough to have me excited about it :')

    Here's my fall TBR!

    1. All it really takes to get me excited is DINOSAURS so I'm already sold on Extinction Trials haha.
      Incidentally, Norse Mythology is first up and I've started it today. I'm listening to the audiobook and quite enjoying it.

  8. All of the books on your list were new to me. Yay! I love it when that happens.

    The Gospel of Loki and The Extinction Trials sound particularly good.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  9. Rebel Belle sounds like it'll be really good, & am still making my way through Norse Gods. Gospel of Loki was a bit so so, but I do plan to reread it once I've finished Norse Gods. Might make a bit sense then, haha!
