Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my fall TBR list

Another week, another Top Ten Tuesday, a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. The topic today is books on my fall TBR list. I’m leaving out my Halloween reads because I’ll be participating in a readathon and creating a different post for it. But let’s check the rest out!

1. THE CHRONICLES OF IXIA BY MARIA V. SNYDER

I recently read the first book of this series, Poison Study, and I really enjoyed it. I’m hoping to get to the next two books this fall, and the rest of the series on the winter months.

I loved the world-building and the characters of the first book. I was pleasantly surprised by the romance, too. That doesn’t happen very often.

2. A DEADLY AFFECTION BY CUYLER OVERHOLT

I requested and got approved for this ARC, so I’m truly excited to read it. The novel was published earlier this month. It’s a historical fiction mystery that follows Dr. Genevieve, one of the first women practicing psychology. One of her patients is arrested for murder, which she fears she might have unintentionally provoked.

 

3. BITTER SWEET LOVE BY MICHAEL FAUDET

A poetry collection dealing with love, loss, relationships and sex, which I came to know from Lang Leav after reading her incredible collection – The Universe of Us. I doesn’t hurt that I’m in love with the cover.

 

4. NEVERNIGHT BY JAY KRISTOFF

Well, I’m actually reading this one at the moment, but it was part of my fall TBR list so I decided to include it here anyway. It’s my first Kristoff and I’m already liking his writing style and wit, even though I’m only 20 pages in. Can’t wait to see what this book has in store for me.

 

5. A PERFECT MURDER AND OTHER STORIES BY S.R. NAIR

31554258

This is a collection of short stories based on India and America that deal with both cultures through very different tales. I received a copy from the author and I’m really happy to read it as part of my goal to read more diversely.

 

 

 

 

 

Are you finishing up any series this fall? Are you participating in any Halloween readathons?

  1. Glad to hear that you’re enjoying Nevernight! That book took AGES for me to get into, but I really enjoyed it overall. I’ve also been meaning to pick up the Study series as I’ve read the first two but haven’t gotten the chance to! The romance was definitely pleasantly surprising. 😛

    1. I just read your comment, it was tagged as spam for some reason 😦
      It’s getting me ages to read Nevernight, but not because I’m not into it, but because I’m in a bit of a reading slump. But I shall conquer it! 😛
      I’m so excited to finish the Study series! I hope you get to finish it soon, too.

      1. Hahaha, yes, I’m a kind soul and let your comment out 😛 I don’t know why WordPress does that, I have to check the spam folder constantly and, sure enough, there are always two comments or more that shouldn’t be there.
        Thank you! ❤

  2. I’m not doing any halloween readathons, but I am participating in a fall reading challenge! I’m a little hesitant to read Nevernight because I did not enjoy Illuminae at all, even though Jay Kristoff did write it with Amie Kaufman.

    1. That’s cool! It’s a longer readathon then. The one I’m doing for Halloween is just a few October weeks.
      Wow, you are the first person I’ve seen that has said they didn’t enjoy Illuminae. I haven’t read it yet, but I think I might enjoy. Who knows, though!

  3. YAS! I’m so glad you enjoyed Poison Study and I can’t wait to see what you think of the rest of the series. Isn’t Yelena awesome or what? Did you love Valek or what? It’s just so good!
    Also A Deadly Affection looks really good. I’m adding it to my TBR immediately

    1. That freaking book surprised me so much!!! I’m in love with both of them, they are such great characters. I honestly didn’t know there was romance and I loved it, which is the weirdest thing for me. I have to read the rest soon, I’m really excited about them 😀
      I’m glad you found a book of your liking here. I’ll read and review A Deadly Affection soon (hopefully) and let you know how good it is 😀
