Top Ten Tuesday (8) - Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR!

Top Ten Tuesday is a an original feature/ weekly meme that was created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is presented and this week's is:

Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR (in no order whatsoever!)

Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) by Sarah J. Maas
Queen of Shadows might actually be one of my later books on my fall TBR; I'm still two books behind. Nevertheless, I have my signed copy lined up to read what happens to our favorite female assassin! Also, don't reveal any spoilers for me hehe. 
Release Date: September 1st 2015

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer
The Lunar Chronicles is a great series, and Meyer does such a great job of creating a diverse range of characters. I finally caught up with Cress a few weeks ago, and I must say, I'm really glad Cinder and Kai are back together again! I can't wait to see what happens in Winter - I have faith in the Rampion crew! (Also really hope they get Scarlet back b/c it seems like she's going through hell)
Release Date: November 10th 2015

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire #5) by George R.R. Martin
I've been reading this series since... Junior year of high school. And because of the extreme length, it has taken me years to finally get to this point of catching up. Actually, I've just been really lazy about books until this year. Nevertheless I can't wait to see what ADWD has in store, and really hope (although it probably won't happen) that Winds of Winter comes out soon!

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
For a really long time, I've wanted to read this book, as the premise resonates so well with me! And I also read Shug as a child, only recently realizing that she wrote this book too. I wonder what happens, when you send out love letters to your former loves. I can't wait to read it - I just got it in the mail!

Fire Falling (Air Awakens #2) by Elise Kova
Everyone on this blog can tell you how in love I was with Air Awakens. It was so amazing and poignant and wonderful - before I go on, I must say, I can't wait for Fire Falling to come out this November! I'm thoroughly anticipating this one (UGH SO MANY GOOD NOVEMBER RELEASES) because I need more Aldrik and Vhalla and Fritz and Larel in my life! This is also basically me throwing my recommendation to everyone to read Air Awakens!
Release Date: November 19th 2015

Ten Thousand Skies Above You (Firebird #2) by Claudia Gray
I picked up A Thousand Pieces of You while I was on vacation, and it blew me away. Romance across parallel dimensions written well - I loved how the Firebird technology worked, and how you can be yourself, and also the person of that dimension, when you dimension-hope. I might be explaining this in a confusing fashion, but it was a fast-paced compelling read for me I'm excited to get! I really want to hear more about the other dimensions, especially the Russia-verse.

The Crimson Crown (The Seven Realms #4) by Cinda Williams Chima 
I got into the Seven Realms series because I was searching for a book with my name in it, and stumbled upon it. There are not that many books with a Raisa in 'em, and this one did not disappoint. Princess Raisa transformed throughout the books and she's now the most powerful Queen of the Fells. What will happen to her and Han in this conclusion? Or the Bayars? This is high fantasy and court intrigue at its finest. Also, all the chills reading about the awesome things 'I'm' doing.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
My interest in this book came from the sampler I got at this year's Bookcon. From what I got out of it, it's really something different than my usual high fantasy or contemporary novels. It seems darker and much more mature, as well. Now, this is one of the books that is out in stores at the moment, but I don't have a copy of it yet. Hopefully I get one soon, as this looks like a read I shouldn't miss.

Illuminae: The Illuminae Files #1 by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I picked up the ARC of this at Bookcon, and this one takes a totally different style of writing than the usual left-to-right line after line. And that's pretty awesome! It's a futuristic dystopia out there, complete with the action and adventure. I'll be reading and reviewing this one sometime in October.
Release Date: October 20th 2015

Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
Coincidentally, today is the release day of Walk on Earth a Stranger! Check out my fellow blogger Yiling's post here with some release day blitz and giveaway fun. Does the sensing gold power seem similar to King Midas's everything he touches turns to gold, or is it just me? Regardless, it's a cool power, and it's a historical novel too! (I love my historical fiction)
Release Date: Today! 

Well that's my top ten fall TBR. Are any of these books on your TBR list? Let me know in the comments below! 


  1. Great list. Walk on Earth a Stranger sounds so good. I can’t wait to read it.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Thanks :D I can't wait to read it too - at some point this fall ~

  2. I am super excited for Walk on Earth a Stranger, and I still need to catch up on A Thousand Pieces of You and the Lunar Chronicles (both are on my TBR!)

    I'm currently reading Heir of Fire (I'm trying to catch up on the series too!) and I'm also trying to read Air Awakens (but I get really unpredictable when I'm reading on an ereader, so it's taking me longer than I expected). I adored An Ember in the Ashes and Illuminae, so I hope you enjoy those! Awesome list, Raisa!!!

    1. Thanks AJ! :) You'll really love A Thousand Pieces of You and all the Lunar Chronicles :D And I've been trying out my Kindle on my phone, so it's certainly a new experience for me ~

  3. Queen of Shadows was on my list this week too!
    My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2015/09/22/top-ten-tuesday-23/

    1. Awesome! I noticed Red Queen was on yours, and that's a great book to read!

  4. OMG George R.R. Martin needs to hurry and come out with Winds of Winter, I binge read the series and now experiencing the dreaded wait. Queen of Shadows and Winter are must haves too! Awesome list!

    1. Thanks Stephanie! :D I really hope it comes out next year so it won't be so long a wait. :)
