Hi everyone! I’m back with a new blog post after (another) short break. It’s been a couple of tiring and stressful weeks and I needed some time to rest. But now I am here and ready for a new Top Ten Tuesday post! For those of you who are new here, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. She comes up with a topic for each week and then book bloggers all around the world get to make their own top ten about that topic. This week’s topic is “Books on my Fall 2020 TBR”. My reading challenge and TBR are an absolute mess this year, but let’s try to do this anyway!
Wicked Saints – Emily A. Duncan
I know this was on my Spring TBR as well, but I finally got around to reading it! So far, I’ve only read two chapters, but I’m intrigued and can’t wait to find out what is going on!
The Priory of the Orange Tree – Samantha Shannon
I love big books, but at the same time I’m also a bit intimidated by them. Which is why this one has been on my shelves for months. But I’ll get to it!
Escaping from Houdini – Kerri Maniscalco
This series is perfect reading material for Halloween, so I’m saving this book for the end of October!
Obsidio – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I love this series and I’m so excited to find out how it all ends! I think this might be my next read!
Star Daughter – Shveta Thakrar
Stardust meets Hindu mythology? That sounds really fascinating! I can’t wait to dive into this one.
The Gilded Ones – Namina Forna
This book will be published in February 2021, but there was an early edition in a Fairyloot box a few months ago. I’ll definitely be reading this soon!
Loki: Where Mischief Lies – Mackenzi Lee
Okay, I’m a bit conflicted about this one. I adore Marvel’s Loki character (I even named my cat after him) and the Victorian setting. Which is why I wanted this book. And then, once I owned a copy, I found out the author is kinda really problematic (look up the Madness Blooms controversy, and the fact that she signs books by POC authors). So I’m a bit on the fence about reading this. I mean, I already own the book, money has been spent and made it to the publisher and the author, so I might as well read it, I guess? Not sure yet…
Darkdawn – Jay Kristoff
The final installment in the Nevernight trilogy, and it’s finally available in an edition that matches my copies of Nevernight and Godsgrave. I’m just not ready to have my heart broken, thrown in a blender, pieced back together, run over by a herd of rampaging elephants and launched into the sun. Which is what I imagine this book will do to me.
The Girl in the Tower – Katherine Arden
The sequel to The Bear and the Nightingale, which I absolutely loved. Perfect for when the weather gets cold!
The City of Brass – S.A. Chakraborty
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this series, so it’s about time I find out for myself what all the hype is about!
What books are on your fall 2020 TBR? Let me know in the comments! Happy reading and stay safe!
Oooh the Star Daughter and The Gilded Ones sound amazing. The Gilded One is one of my most anticipated books of 2021. I hope you enjoy them 😍
